The Dusty Rose isn’t Bryn’s ideal home but she finds ways to numb herself to the reality of prostitution. That’s the only way she can survive. When a quick, secret trip into town goes wrong, Bryn is rescued by two strangers. Something about the men called to her so before Bryn knows it, she takes a job as a swab hand on their ship. If she is caught trying to escape, her fate could be worse than death, but it’s a chance Bryn is willing to take.

Captain Xander was in quite a mess. He was already on the run, and now he discovers he’s harboring a prostitute, which is a capital offense. Things were intense but Xander knew that Bryn was good for him and Hawke, his first mate and lover. She gave him the feeling of having a family, and Xander would do anything to protect what was his. Life without her was not an option.

Xander’s ship, The Sugar Skull, is overtaken and all of their lives are threatened. Bryn takes it upon herself to save the day when she realizes that the captors have her friend, who also turns out to be connected to Hawke. The crew puts up a great fight that gains them their freedom and a chance for a life of adventure.

Lilli Feisty paints a graphic and vivid picture of what life was like for a prostitute in the future that sucked me into Wasteland: The Whore. Rather than feeling sorry for Bryn, I was empowered by her strength. Life definitely hardened her shell, but I was thankful that Bryn still had enough softness left to open herself up to Xander and Hawke. Both men brought passion to the pages that will leave readers breathless. I was left longing for a deeper peek into Hawke’s mind. Two hot pirates and one feisty female create an action packed sexy story that is too good to pass up.
