In a galaxy torn apart by war...
Mara Skiren is a scavenger, a black-market dealer. Blackmailed into helping Commander Kell Frayne infiltrate a treacherous corner of the galaxy, Mara learns that her biggest danger is from her sexy, by-the-book partner. She's a loner with more than a few battle scars on her heart, but something about Commander Frayne stirs up her long-buried need for an intimate connection.
An ace pilot for the elite Black Wraith Squadron, Kell's mission is to rescue a lost pilot and ship. Unable to deny his attraction to the beautiful, rebellious Mara, he decides bedding her would cool his ardor. But one taste is not nearly enough, and he finds himself sharing more of his real self with her than he has with anyone.
With deadly criminals on their heels and an increasingly dangerous assignment to complete, he's starting to wonder...if they survived, could he let her go? And will Mara want to stay?
I wanted a short Sci Fi Romance, and this was on sale, so I grabbed it! I really enjoyed the heroine and her voice. I’ve already bought book 2, so I’m excited to continue on. With work being so time consuming, novellas are my favorite thing right now.
Mara is a salvager. She’s being blackmailed into helping the 8th Wing recover one of their ships and the captain. As if that isn’t bad enough, they’re sending one of their best pilots with her. She works alone, and no matter how sexy this guy is, she wants to keep working alone.
Kell is trying to make the universe a safer place. The war that’s been going on needs to end, and the 8th Wing’s new ships are the way to do that. But his friend is the pilot, and he wants her back safely. In the mean time, he wants to sway Mara to his side, not just into is arms 😉
But can the two of them keep their hands off each other during the mission? (spoiler alert: they can’t!)
There were a couple of twists and turns I didn’t see coming, but if you’re in the mood for a fun little Space Opera/Sci Fi Romance, this one is quick, sexy, and enjoyable.
