Fortune's Pawn by Rachel Bach

What does an adrenaline-junkie soldier do upon reaching the top of the promotion ladder, and the next promotion up is a desk job?  Find a new ladder.   Devi wants to join the elite King’s Guard even though she’s barely thirty, and that means finding an active-duty job.  Her boyfriend finds a cursed ship looking for security. While Devi doesn’t believe in curses, she doesn’t believe in coincidence either, and this ship has been attacked more than once on every voyage.
