On the run from pirates after her bounty, Treska seeks shelter on a hostile moon, and Micah's underworld contacts are the only thing keeping both of them from becoming lizard food. But the planet's very atmosphere wreaks havoc on Micah's mind, placing his mission--and his fragile truce with Treska--at risk. More
The Snare She’s bound his hands…now she’s working on his heart. A simple job turns to a fight for survival when Treska crash-lands on a remote moon, far from the heart of her Union. On the run from space pirates and planetary insurgents, she must rely on Micah to help them both survive when they learn the bounty on her captive’s head is nothing compared to the bounty on her own. But the moon’s peculiar atmosphere wreaks havoc on Micah’s mental talents, mixing memories of his lost lover with his current captor. Blurring the lines between his mission and his affection might make it impossible for Micah to protect his enemy from his allies.
About the Huntress Treska Sivekka is the Huntress--the Union’s most skilled bounty hunter. Her targets? The psypaths whose mental talents summoned aliens attacks on the capital planet that left her body shattered and her mind a blank slate. Now the last free psypath is in her crosshairs...if only he weren't her one chance at restoring her lost memories.
The alien attacks came out of nowhere and left the entire system reeling, but the aftermath caused twice as much destruction to the old social orders as psypaths like Micah Ariesis and near-humans like the Hathori became scapegoats for an inexplicable devastation...and then rebels against the repressive, reactionary government that rose from the ashes.
The last free psypath has one chance at victory for the rebellion...but the memories locked in the Huntress's mind hold the key.

Ever since she was found in the aftermath of alien attacks, Treska Sivekka has been trained to one purpose--to hunt down threats to the security of the Union that gave her an identity. But when the Union's biggest threat inspires desire, and not fear, it’s going to take all her training to protect her principles against his persuasive onslaught.
The Huntress's neuro-collar and repulsor cuffs may keep Micah bound to her mercy, but they can't stop him from challenging her convictions, and the lies she's been told about his people. But when the secrets surrounding her own missing memories begin to reveal themselves, he may be the only one she can trust.
Pursued across the star system by the Huntress, helpless as his psionically-talented brethren were brought down one by one, Micah Ariesis must sacrifice himself in a sketchy revolutionary plot aimed at the Union’s heart, but the mystery surrounding his pursuer's mysterious origins puts danger to a much closer heart—his own.
