As Megan struggles to adjust to a green sky and a
sexually-inventive society, she is brutally forced to confront the dark side
of the planet Khyra. Kidnapped and held hostage by

well as contradicting feelings in her heart.
At a time when she needs strength and resilience,
will her love for Khiru, the fierce Rhysh Master, be help or hindrance? In Two Moons
II: The Freemanís Captive, the second novel of her intergalactic
adventures, Megan finds herself in a battle she didnít choose, one in which
the outcome will forever change her life.

I enjoyed this story and glad I read it right after the first one. Both together made the story even better.

I couldn't put this book down, once I started it. It is a first-rate successor
to Two Moons: Worthy of A Master. Beware if BDSM shocks you. Although such
scenes abound, Shepard never fails to build meaningful relationships among
her characters and to characterize them, especially Megan, so that the reader
really cares about them. Nor does she neglect a fascinating and
tension-filled plot. The leading male character, Khiru,
seems remote, but I suspect that is purposeful. The second leading male
character, Kalhan, although just as dominant as Khiru, seems more like a real person with honest
disappointments, doubts, and emotional attachments. Minor figures such as Leeham, the neophyte submissive, are masterfully drawn
and evoke sympathy and smiles from the reader. The leading villain, Vogh, is portrayed as deeply dark and evil as possible.
although Shepard fleshes out the character by revealing one weak spot in his
armor (I won't tell and ruin the plot!) The structure of society on the alien
planet that is the setting seems carefully and believably drawn. Strong recommendation with the caveat mentioned above.

This is a follow on to The
first book Worthy of a Master. Megan gets Khiru a trained Master, but their
relationship turns rockey. She is kidnaped by some folks from the free
colonies for the same reason that the Global Council wants her, as a source
of DNA that will let them repair the genitic damage done during the gene
wars. They changed the male/female birth rate to 4 to 1 and then when the
wars were over the attempt to nromalize make things much worse and left 1/2
of the couples unable to have children. (Even today genetic manipulation in
this regon of the gene is known to cause secondary problems and unpredictable
results.) The free areas are those who refused to submit to the Council
because they objected for religious, cultural or other reasons the rule of
the Council. Good plot/subplot, sex scenes, and characterization. Reminds me
of Laura Antoniou at her best, but without the transsectual issues. Nicley
done BDSM, Ds, and MS scenes; even if you generaly don't like this type of
book I would highly recomend this one.

Shepard does not disappoint!
After reading Two Moons: Worthy of a Master (book 1), I couldn't wait to get
Freeman's Captive. This book is just as witty, sexy, and well-written as the
Our heroine, Megan, finds herself on Khyra with her wonderful new lover,
Khiru. However, not all is paradise, as Megan and Khiru come to understand
that Megan will never be able to satisfy Khiru's complex needs as a Master --
a graduate of the exclusive acadamy where Dom/mes and subs are formally
trained in the fine art of BDSM.
Back in book 1, Megan's disasterous incident with an irresponsible dom left
her with emotional scars. She enters book 2 with all sorts of psychological
baggage concerning masochism.
Meanwhile, the whole planet is looking to her DNA as the saving force that
will keep Khyrians from eventually becoming extint (a result of their
previous meddling with reproductive genetics).
As the wonderfully-planned plot unfolds, Megan is kidnapped by rebels who
want to see free territories gain the same benefit from Megan's fertile body.
Megan steps up to every challenge, blooming into a new woman as she is forced
to face her greatest fears about sex, bondage, pain, submission ... and
I cannot recommend this series enough, and I cannot wait for the next

I just had to write to tell you that I loved both of
your Two Moons books, and I sincerely hope that you're hard at work on
another installment of Megan's adventure... I'm also hoping that Rhysh turns
out to be a devilishly sweet ordeal for my favorite earthling. ;)
I've been sorely disappointed with the availability of quality writing in the
world of kink. Thank heavens for someone who understands that character
development and plot are essential elements of any story. I'm also
indescribably pleased with the fusion of sci-fi and submission.
I was somehow unsurprised when I discovered that "Sweet Butterfly"
was one of yours; when I read Crash Your Party Dress, that one stuck out for
me as being exceptionally well-written. I think your writing is far more
satisfying in terms of describing the complex physical and psychological
enigma that is submission.
Thank you so much for what you've published so far -- you've gained a fan!

I wanted to write a quick note of appreciation of
your wonderfully descriptive books. You have created such an interesting and
detailed world. I have greatly enjoyed reading your two books and avidly am
waiting for your next. I read the second book all night long because I
had to find out what happened in the end more I went to bed. Beautiful job!
