In the race for freedom—and love—there’s no holding back.
The Kithran Regenesis, Book 4 

After fourteen torturous years as a slave on a galaxy roving entertainment ship, Siri carries only vague memories of parents who loved her, Gwinarian food, and her beautiful home planet of Kithra.

When two space pirates burst into her owner’s room, the choice they offer her is all too easy: stay and face government questioning about the two intruders, or take a chance and go with them.

Claybourne and Anders had planned to help expose the pleasure ship owner’s involvement in Kithra’s destruction. But when they happen upon Siri, saving one of the last—and most beautiful—of the Gwinarian race takes precedence. 

Siri tastes freedom long denied…and temptation to succumb to the deep sexual tension vibrating between her and her two liberators. Clay and Anders take pleasure in letting her take the lead in rediscovering the power of intimacy.

But there are more secrets to uncover, and Siri senses that the closer they come to the truth, the closer she comes to the most painful choice of all—to let her pirate lovers go.

Well... Where should I start? Umm.. Let's see. I guess I should first mention that I haven't read a Dani Worth book that I didn't love. And she didn't let me down with Origin, it exceeded my expectations. This series just gets better and better! 

The first three books in the Kithran Regenesis Series are novellas, so I was very happy to find out that Origin was novel length. This book could be read as standalone, but I suggest you read them in order. You won't be disappointed. 

Origin revolves around Clay, Anders, and Siri. If you have read this series, then you will remember Clay and Anders from the book Catalyst. I'm happy Dani decided to write their story next. It needed to be told. 

In this book we are introduced to Siri, a Gwinarian from the planet Kithra. She was being held prisoner on a "Entertainment" ship. Siri had been taken when she was nine years old, and had been tortured and abused for the past fourteen years. 

Our sexy pirate heroes Clay and Anders stumble upon Siri, and rescue her from her fate. Siri is one of my favorite heroines. She is so strong to have survived what she did, and not be completely broken and lost. She is a true survivor. Her story was heartbreaking and tragic, but she kept moving forward. I don't think I have ever wanted a heroine to find happiness more then I wanted Siri to. 

Clay and Anders were perfect for her. Siri see's their incredible sexual tension and wonders why they aren't together. She vows to bring them together, and a journey of discovery begins for the three of them. Siri, learning to heal from her trauma and understand love. Clay and Anders learning to show their love for each other, and Siri. It was absolutely Fabulous! 
The writing and plot was strong as usual. The world building was spot on without being too overly technical. The chemistry, sexual tension, and sexual scenes were passionate, sexy, and fit in with the storyline. The emotion behind the story was real and could be felt through the writing. 

I am very much looking forward to more books in this series. Dani Worth has something special with these books and I hope she keeps on writing them.
5 STARS/ 5

Product Warnings
Sexy human space pirates. An acerbic-tongued crew. A beautiful wounded alien woman. M/M/F sparks galore, and interplanetary intrigue.

Someone touched my arm and I flinched, then blinked at Clay, who stood looking at me with concern. “Is it too much?”

“Is what too much?” I whispered, still trapped in memories.

He nodded toward the vidscreens where images of Kithra’s explosions were now being played—vids that had come in before all communication had been cut off.

Some of the same vids Lashin had used to break me.

I met that light blue gaze and nodded. “Is it okay if I go back to my room?”

“Of course. You are free to do anything you want.”

I had to walk past Anders to leave and he too watched me closely. I didn’t know what made me do it, but I stopped just behind him and put my hand on the same shoulder Clay had touched. I squeezed. His hand came up and covered mine as he continued to try and read my emotions. I poked and prodded past my own inner torment brought on by memories and found a smile for him. A real one.

He sucked in a breath, stared hard at my mouth, then shook his head ruefully. “You are going to make my heart break again, aren’t you?”

I lifted an eyebrow over the again part, then realized Clay had heard Anders and gone still. The two men stared at each other. Nobody else was paying attention—all eyes on the replay of the same horrific vids.

Clay walked right up to Anders and leaned down until their faces were only inches apart. He whispered, “Who broke whose heart?”

The emotion that stretched between Anders and the captain touched me—really touched me. I could feel it in the warmth that cropped up again—the one I never could drum up, even with the nicer men and women who had taken me in for the night. Not that there’d been that many nice ones. Good people didn’t frequent ships like the one I had been on.

These were good men, pirates or not, and whatever kept them from being together seemed pretty damned ridiculous to me right then.

I glanced back at the screens, took in the visuals of pods exploding, knowing that people, my people, had been inside them.

Clay and Anders were alive and they obviously loved each other.

As I turned my back on them and the screens and made my way back to my bunkroom, it hit me. I was alive too. Alive and free and I owed that to those two men.
