Item description for Mercenary Redemption by Diane Merlin...
Hurt, confused, and down right pissed off, Devona takes off in the Freebird, determined to prove to herself she can go it alone. But her first stop reveals that the bounty on her head has been raised and she and her friends are in some serious trouble. Kevnor races to her rescue only to have her snatched out of his hands and delivered to his sworn enemies the Imani. Mik's Mercenaries are back with another adventure, proving once again that they can out think, out fight and out maneuver any foe. On their daring rescue mission this hard-hitting, hard-loving bunch unravel a plot to overthrow two governments, saving the solar system from an escalating war. While the rest of the crew is rushing to her aid, Dev is busy stirring up her own hornet's nest on Iman. Nothing is as it seems and she's determined to find the answers about her birth while instigating an uprising by the planet's subjugated men. Anyone who thinks women are the gentler sex obviously hasn't met Devona. And may the gods have mercy on anyone-man or woman-who comes between her and the ones she loves.

Mercenary Redemption Mar 4, 2008
At the end of Mercenary Heart, Kevnor and Dev have a huge fight and she flees their home base, on their best ship. While she knows she is being rash there are just some things a pregnant woman should not have to take when she is a newlywed. She decides to make her own way and sets out to hire a crew. She quickly finds out that not only is there still a price on her head, but the price has gone up. Her birth world (Iman), which she doesn't know anything about, wants her back as they claim she is their princess. After a few grueling weeks she is finally reunited with Kevnor after they both come to their senses. Then she is kidnapped and taken to Iman, where she finds that her birth world is as backwards as any world she has ever seen. Men are treated as little more than slaves and sperm donors. No way is she raising her baby on this planet.
It does not take Dev long to figure out there is something really wrong, in addition to Iman's arcane rules and beliefs. But, they won't let her go. She knows Kev, plus the rest of her old crewmates will be moving galaxies, if necessary, to rescue her. She plans to be ready when they arrive. She is not going to sit still either; she adopts the two slave boys that are sent to serve her and teaches them they are not second-class citizens. But, can she also help figure out what is going on with Iman and help change it before she is rescued?
Mercenary Redemption is a fantastic follow up to Mercenary Heart. I loved this story almost as much as I loved the first book in the series. Diane Merlin does a fantastic job in setting the stage for the stories that she writes. In my mind, I am right there along with the main characters. Ms. Merlin again shows that family does not have to be genetically attached; they can be formed through experiences together. I am looking forward to reading whatever this author writes next, though I do wish she would find a way to continue this series as it is imaginative, sexy and gripping. I think Mercenary Redemption is a great enchanting read.
