Spotlight: Break Out by Nina Croft


The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they've discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they're called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can't resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective's maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous—or so fun.

Tagline: Irreverent. Irresponsible. Insatiable. Who says immortals can’t have any fun?

Once they were clear of the planet, Rico switched the navigation system to automatic. Skylar leaned against the wall next to the cryo-unit. She’d put her shoes back on, and the heels made her legs appear endless. Dios, she was sexy in that dress, and the weapon belts strapped to her waist just made her sexier. Her eyes caught his, and she looked away quickly.
She was going to try to avoid paying her debt. He wasn’t about to let that happen. She might have
saved his life back there on Trakis One, but a deal was a deal. Besides, it wasn’t as though she wouldn’t enjoy it.
Tannis strolled across the deck. She stared in through the glass window of the cryo-unit. “That’s little Jonny?” she asked, and Rico could hear the disbelief in her voice.
He peered in and grinned. The man was enormous. Rico turned to Skylar. “He doesn’t look much like you.”
“He’s actually only a half-brother. Same father, different mother. I call him little because I was ten when he was born so he was...” She shrugged. “...little. It just became habit. How long until he wakes up?”
Tannis examined the control panel. She pressed a few buttons. “There, it’s started, but a good few hours, I would think.”
“Perhaps we could load him into my shuttle. Do you want me to transfer the balance of the fee now?”
“Actually, “Rico said, “that can wait until we get back to the ship. And little Jonny stays here for the moment.”
Skylar dragged her gaze from the cryo-unit to Rico. “I’d like him with me.”
No way was he letting Skylar out of his sight. Certainly, he wasn’t going to let her take their new friend and disappear as he suspected she might. He wanted his reward. He wanted answers even more. He’d considered waiting until they were all safely back on board El Cazador, but he had a feeling that things could go badly wrong very quickly. This might be his only chance to get her alone, show her a little of what they could have together, convince her that she had options.
“Darling,” he said, “I’ll be with you. We have some unfinished business, you and me.”
Her eyes widened. “We do?”
“Oh yeah. And having your brother present might just cramp my style.”
He didn’t give her a chance to say anything further. He moved in close, took her arm, and hustled her toward the door. He turned to Tannis. “We’ll see you back at the ship. We’ll be a couple of hours. At least.”
On board the shuttle, he slammed the hatch and sat down in the pilot’s seat. Within minutes, they had undocked and were heading into space. Away from El Cazador.
Rico set the autopilot and swiveled his chair to look at Skylar.
