Prez has been in the arms – or tentacles – of one too many brothel workers in his time. The memory of long-lost love is all he has, and it’s not enough. But no one in the Belaar-Andra system wants an alien half-breed for a partner, so life is as good as it can be. He’s making money, he’s going places, he’s got friends and a spaceship he loves – a decrepit cargo ship named Outcast. And now he’s got a new co-pilot, from the remote world of Aldor. Lan’s mysterious and doesn’t say a lot, but as they get to know each other, Prez starts to feel something he hasn’t felt in a long time – hope.
But the past hasn’t quite released him, and the Outcast isn’t done yet. On its final mission to deliver a mysterious cargo for the Belaari government, long-buried secrets start to stir. When his old co-pilot – and best friend – is finally himself again, Prez has a difficult decision to make, but Lan has other ideas about his own destiny. A rich man at last, can Prez finally get the things he really wants?

Wyatt Brave became an international phenomenon with the success of his first mainstream punk-pop album. Now that it's past time for his sophomore release, however, he finds that he can't write the love songs his album desperately needs. Enter Bryce, the small-town pretty boy who played in Wyatt's touring band. One passionate night together gives Wyatt the drive he needs to finish his album and leaves Bryce wanting more. But when Wyatt takes off the next morning, Bryce is forced to admit that maybe he was just another notch in Wyatt's bedpost—a knot in his string.
