Once a pirate, always a pirate?
Cullen Rex, former space-pirate is now Head of Security on the transporter – Medusa. The captain of the Medusa will move anything (and anyone) if the price is right. Their latest mission is to deliver a passenger to the blighted planet of Elexon in time for the Conjunction.
Once a prince, always a prince?

Exiled ten years previously, Mycel Laast has hired one of the toughest crews in the nearby galaxy to get him home to Elexon. The Conjunction approaches, a time of myth and wonder for his people, and he longs to witness this once-in-a-decade event. At least that is what the crew of the Medusa believe…

The best kind of trouble

Getting involved with a stuck-up royal is the last thing Cullen wants, but it’s lust at first sight and their new passenger goes out of his way to make his interest clear.

What starts as a fling soon grows serious, but a relationship built on a foundation of secrets and constructed from lies is no relationship at all. Can Mycel trust his brutal, beautiful lover with the desperate truth about his mission home? 

Conjunction by Merryn Dexter is an intriguing romance. I liked this one. Some original ideas in this book that kept me turning the pages. I liked the pace of this book, felt like it moved along at a great pace.
The characters have a great connection and the arc of the story is good.
Cullen is a former space pirate. Head of security on the transporter Medusa. He is a rough character with many layers. Very complex man.
Mycel is even more complicated. He has been exiled 10 years ago. A prince without a thrown right now. He is going home, but will he be welcomed or killed?
The conjunction is a time of myth and wonders for his people. He longs to witness this event. And the crew of the Medusa do too.
Cullen doesn’t want a royal for a lover but that might just be what he gets.
I had fun reading this one. I would love for there to be more books in this world in the future. I certainly will look for more stories from this author in the future. I would love to see what comes next.
