Will Franny choose to live or just to survive?
Hardship, pain, and strife describes life on Utopia, a mining colony far from Earth. Women are a rare commodity. When an alien trade ship arrives with a cargo containing a human woman, every man on Utopia shows up to bid. Three friends pool their funds in the hope they'll have a human woman in their beds to keep them warm on the long nights of the coming harsh winter.
Francesca Dehart suffered the terror of aliens abducting her from a country road. The horror of being kidnapped and then sold as a sex slave is beyond anything Franny has ever imagined. With no hope of being rescued she finds herself with a new definition of hell—Utopia.
Can Cade, Nebraska, and Dawson show Franny her new life is more than a prison? They need her, but will she stay with them or run at the first opportunity? Can they hold onto the woman they've grown to love and protect her from the others who will stop at nothing to have her?

"…it was a fun, quick read" Mary's Menage Reviews
"This book is well written and was surprisingly emotional. The struggles that the three men went through in having to share the woman they all loved was very realistic. The inhumane treatment of the inhabitants of the planet was heartwrenching. And the happy ending was enough to bring a smile to my face. The author did a great job of instilling a sense of complete hopelessness, then bringing sudden joy with…oh, wait. I don’t want to spoil it. I’ll just say that I enjoyed this story very much." - You Gotta Read Reviews
