Synopsis (Goodreads):
In the outer reaches, facing the imminent destruction of her ship, Captain Anna Voron accepts help from newly-discovered, space-faring phoenix shifters. Their leader awakens dark memories and makes trust impossible but she's out of choices.

Piotr dom Raven lives for duty. And that duty has two goals: become a full phoenix with reincarnation abilities and win a decades-long war threatening to destroy their kind. The intriguing captain of a derelict ship changes everything. His phoenix wants her, but mating a human means permanent death and deserting his command.

The enemy of old has Anna in his sights and Piotr can't stop the diabolical plans set in motion. If Anna can face her past and Piotr can follow his phoenix instincts, they stand a chance to save the endangered crew. But will they find the key to survival in time?
Thoughts on The Phoenix Warrior: The far reaches of space, a dangerous situation, and a race of (possibly mythical) phoenix shifters showing up out of the blue to offer assistance. Throw in a woman who's pushed memories of captivity at the hands of some very bad men into the darkest corners of her mind and you have a volatile situation.

Oh, and then there's the whole "mating with a human would make Piotr pretty much an outcast" thing.

Yeah, things are a little tense when Anna and Piotr first cross paths. Their attraction to one another coupled with the danger to the crew--and Anna in particular--has them pushing one another away on more than one occasion. Then the full scope of why they were lured into the far reaches of space are discovered and things get even more sticky.

Sexy shifters, determined humans, and a diabolical plan to...well, do stuff. BAD STUFF. When it comes out, everything changes. Almost literally.
