Scifi Erotic Romance
Rating: 5 Cups
Melissa Stark and her crew are space pirates. An all-girl, man-hating team, they will take on just about any job. When offered the job of securing Zachary Knight and returning him in a cryo-tube, therefore asleep, it sounds like easy money, money they desperately need to repair the ship they stole from Zackary ten years earlier.
Captain Zackary Knight is accused of hideous crimes against the people of Talmare. When he wakes to find himself on his own ship in the custody of the ‘ladies’ who stole it, he finds himself in a difficult predicament. He needs to convince the crew of his innocence and enlist their help, but he wants more than just their help.
Mel is drawn to Zack even if she doesn’t want to be. But, she needs the money they will get for handing him over. Something is telling her that he has told her the truth; he is innocent. Can they work together to beat the bad guy, and stay alive?
This is a fast-paced action-filled sexy tale of bad guys--or in this case girls--being good and saving the universe. Mel is a sassy independent leader who flies by the seat of her pants, while Zack is a trained solider and likes order and to protect those he perceives as his. They come together with a lightening bright energy that leaves you breathless and wanting more. This is the first of Ms Croft’s novels and I truly hope not the last.
