When Jeremiah arrived at Megiddo Station, all he wanted was to make some trades and resupply his starship. He never thought he’d come away with a wife.
Before he knows it, he’s back on his ship, alone with his accidental bride. Since neither of them speak the same language, he has no way to tell her that there’s been a terrible mistake. And because of the deadly famine ravaging her home, there’s no going back. She’s entirely at his mercy, and that terrifies him more than anything.
Jeremiah isn’t ready to take responsibility for anyone. He’s a star wanderer, roaming the Outworld frontier in search of his fortune. Someday he’ll settle down, but for now, he just wants to drop the girl off at the next port and move on.
As he soon finds out, though, she has other plans.
About the Author
When Joe Vasicek was eight years old, he saw Star Wars IV: A New Hope and read Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. He’s been making up stories about other worlds ever since. On this world, he’s traveled to the Colorado Rockies, the Syrian Desert, the vineyards of Imereti, the shores of the Mediterranean, and the gilded domes of the Holy Land, all of which have influenced his books.
He graduated in 2010 from Brigham Young University with degrees in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies & Arabic, and has since worked in a candy factory, a costume warehouse, a Washington D.C. think tank, and a village school in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains. He has published over a dozen novels and novellas, but he hopes that that number will eventually grow to exceed one hundred. In the meantime, no matter what he does or where he travels, he’s always writing.
