No man in the galaxy inspires more fear than Korbin, the Admiral of the Black. His life as leader of the biggest pirate band in space leaves little room for trust, so when Korbin’s second-in-command disappears without a trace, he suspects the worst.

Zain Strand has left his life as a sex slave behind and risen within the pirate ranks. But he abandons it all to rescue an old friend from recapture by the slavers—even if that means a suicidal confrontation with his old master. He doesn’t expect Korbin’s arrival, doesn’t want Korbin’s help . . . but Korbin gives Zain no choice.

Posing as master and slave to infiltrate a slave auction, Korbin and Zain embark on a journey of lust that rapidly reveals their deeper feelings. When Zain’s old master discovers their ruse, Korbin must do everything in his power to save both their lives and their newfound love.

Publisher’s note: While books #1 and #2 in the Bounty series should be read in order, this book stands alone and can be read without the first two.

My View:

I really enjoyed this instalment in the Bounty series. The characters were complex, the world was well thought out, and the tension between Korbin and Zain was delicious! I supposedly had read this book back in 2012, but didn't remember any of it so it was a brand new story for me.

I love slave stories and so really liked the premise of No Master. The dynamics between Korbin and Zain was well done. There was plenty of action, both in and out of the bedroom. I got a good sense of who they were as people and together.

Although this is the last of the series currently published, I would love to have another in this universe. If you love power plays, sci-fi and romance, you should try this.
