Hunting Party Paperback
Part of the The Serrano Legacy series
Heris Serrano was an officer born of a long line of officers, and a life serving in the ranks of the Regular Space Service was all she had ever known and all she ever wanted - until a treacherous superior officer forced her to resign her commission.
This was not just the end of a career path; it was the end of everything that gave her life meaning. But even ex-Fleet captains have to eat, and Heris finds employment as 'Captain' of an interstellar luxury yacht, working for the eccentric Lady Cecelia de Marktos.
Being a rich old lady's chauffeur isn't quite the same as captaining a Fleet cruiser, but nothing Heris will ever do again will compare with that. Or so she thinks ...For all is not as it seems aboard the Sweet Delight.
The smuggling ring is only the start of it. For on a visit to a seemingly innocuous pleasure planet, Heris stumbles across a very sinister hunting club and finds herself fighting for her life - and for the lives of friends she thought she'd never see again.

First in a long series, I have them all. I like books with female protagonists, particularly in sci-fi war settings. This isn't as good as books which followed it but was a very good introduction.
Review by JudithProctor
a blend of SF and fox-hunting. The writer is clearly a horse lover and I quite enjoyed the hunting scenes and the SF tweaks such as the riding simulator.There seems to be a lesbian sub-text in places, which is actually more interesting than the low-key heterosexual romance near the end.
Review by TheOneTree
This was so unstoppable, and not putdownable, that I raced out and bought the rest to read, and re-read at me leisure. Nice read, fast paced. The book equivalent of a chick-flick with action, but no hair flicking. Loved it.
