Description: Deep space is no place to spend the holiday season, but freighter captain Maxine Fields has no choice. She has to make a special delivery, the kind that pays as much for her silent discretion as for her on-time delivery record.

So with nobody but the penguins on her favorite flannel pajamas to keep her company, she sets a course, pours a mug of eggnog, and contemplates what’s left of the ragged tinsel tree taped to her console. If only Santa would leave a little gift under that tree. No, a big gift -- a tall, rugged, ready-for-action gift. One who would heat up the holiday and show her just what kind of stocking stuffer a naughty girl should get.

When Max responds to a distress beacon, she gets her holiday wish, and then some. Edmond Cabanesty might just be at the top of Santa’s naughty list. With growing dread, she reads the crimes etched into the side of his exile pod. Defection. Genocide. Murder. Oh, Santa, whatever will you deliver next...?

To My Readers: This story of Max and Eddy made me wiggle in my seat, clench my teeth, ball my fists and curse at the computer screen…then it made me sigh in contentment. I hope it does all that for you too!

"Max and Eddy are very strong- willed characters: both trying hard to maintain their physical and emotional distance from the other. Ms. Gray shows great sensitivity in writing the love scenes between Max and Eddy, what could be shown as an anonymous encounter becomes something much deeper between two people needing more than just physical contact. This is not to discount the passionate intensity of the love scenes; at times the heat generated between the characters is combustible.

As the story progresses Max and Eddy (and the reader) come to discover they need each other in many different ways, the least of which is merely physical. This progression of the characters is what makes Unclaimed an enjoyable story to read.

I highly recommend it, and not just as a holiday tale."
