My Teaser this week is from Furious, Kris Longknife # 10 by Mike Shepherd.
I finished the book yesterday and loved it. It is a little different from previous books as there are no big space battles. Kris and Jack do finally get together, at least for a little while. It is a bridge novel between book 9 and what will be book 10 so hold on for more action.

Here is the Goodreads summary:
Having used unorthodox methods to save a world—and every sentient being on it—Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife is wanted across the galaxy for crimes against humanity. For her own safety, she’s been assigned to a backwater planet where her Fast Patrol Squadron 127 enforces immigration control and smuggler interdiction.
But Kris is a Longknife, and nothing can stop her from getting back to the center of things—not when all hell is breaking loose. Now she’s on the run, hunted by both military and civilian authorities—and since the civilian authorities happen to be her immediate family, Kris soon finds herself homeless, broke, and on trial for her life on an alien world.
