That is Allie and Shank.
Allie is brash, young, and utterly confident. Maybe too confident. However she promised to go back for Jacqs, and she’s determined to live up to that promise. She’s confident and sexual and completely sure that she’s got it all figured out.
The only think Shank knows is that they don’t have anything figured out. He’s been around the universe long enough to know how screwed up the system is. He’s invested in saving Jacqs and Zeke, but he’s a little more realistic about how ugly this is going to get.
He also knows that his relationship with Allie is missing something. She is a very dominant woman who has never really let herself be a domme. He is a submissive man who hasn’t submitted for fear of having yet another lover mistake submissive for pushover.
This was a fun one to write. I loved researching the Sioux background, and this is a world where the Sioux insist on remaining Sioux, even as other groups lose their identities. I don’t often write het, but these two demanded to have their love story told. And I needed to find a way to get Jacqs and Zeke out of the mess they found themselves in.
