The System

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating Details  ·  3 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
Capri is an alluring young prostitute with a painful past; Brody is a ruthless mercenary running with a crew of thieves who live on a spaceship called Gypsy Lass. When he enters her brothel, the attraction between them is instant, electric, and too much for him to handle. He leaves unsatisfied, never wanting to see the girl again for fear she might soften his hard heart.

The comparison between Heather Lin's The System and Joss Whedon's Firefly is not too far off the mark, with a few notable exceptions.
