Book 1

Who recommends: Barbara, Lori
Who discommends:

Definitely sci-fi, she's a pilot of a small cargo ship, trying to make ends meet. She takes cargo of an indentured servant, one of those of the lower classes - she's a Class 2, normal and able to reproduce - most Classes below are sterilized since they're not normal. And the indentured servant is a Class 10, barely above a vegetable. Lots of twists and turns in this one, plotting, breaking into high security areas to rescue... And yes, she comes to realize Lewis is awfully smart for a vegetable. His shy manner was kind of irritating to me at first, but it definitely grew on me. Written in the first person, so we only see how she sees him - and yes, they definitely have steamy, if short, sex scenes. Then we discover his True Past and What He Really Is. However, this is NOT a HEA, she tells him adios at the end, sure that if he stays with her, the bad guys will find him again - you have to already have the second of the series stashed.--Barbara (21 Aug 99)
