The Road to the Rim, A. Bertram Chandler , single work novella
Ensign John Grimes of the Federation Survey Service is fresh out of the Academy and as green as they come. After boarding the Interstellar Transport Commission's merchant spaceship Delta Orionis as a passenger bound for deep space, Grimes finds himself involved, reluctantly, in salvaging another ship which has been attacked by space pirates. It doesn't help that his decision-making process has been influenced by the more than attractive Jane Pentecost (and Grimes is as green with women as his he is as a spaceman), or as a consequence of having been put under guard as a mutineer. As much as the odds will be stacked against him, Grimes soon begins to earn his infamous reputation as a 'lucky bastard.'

(p. 1-118)
To Prime the Pump, A. Bertram Chandler , single work novel

By now a Lieutenant in the Federation Survey Service, Grimes, finds himself serving aboard the cruiser Aries bound for the planet El Dorado. Abundantly wealthy, and inhabited only by the super-rich and their android servants, the population nevertheless has an increasingly urgent problem. The men are infertile, cause unknown, and the women want someone to do something about it. After crash-landing the advance party rocket boat on a lake, Grimes meets the beautiful but haughty Princess Marlene von Stolzberg. Once again out of his depths Grimes will need every ounce of his famous luck to get him back in the good books and hopefully salvage his career prospects.
