Destiny is written in the stars? Maybe, but when you’re in a black hole you make your own damn destiny. It’s not every day you get abducted by an alien general, but then, Jerusa Whichab isn’t having an average day. Earth is fading from view and she’s got a decision to make—cooperate with her despotic, yet unnervingly attractive captor or receive an injection of goo. General Toyeb can’t be trusted, and his body-healing, mind-blowing Theta waves leave her panting for more. But what choice does she have if she’s to stay alive? None, if enemy bounty hunter Berwyck dal Korth has his way. Intent on capturing Jerusa, he performs a binding ritual to ensure she cannot escape him—a ritual with unforeseen side effects for both of them. Forced into hostile proximity, Berwyck and Jerusa battle to subdue their rising attraction, but will they conquer their desire—or succumb?
I think that the only downfall with this novel was the heroine. She was easy to relate to and sympathize with, but I really wished she would have been a stronger physical character. I like to read about girls who have determination and can take care of themselves. That being said, I think that Sienna Bronwyn has created a novel that is very very fun to read. The romance and sex scenes were mega steamy. There is a bit of a cliffhanger and we have to wait for book #2, but I will definitely have it on my TBR list to see where the story goes. I really hope we get some more backstory and that Jerusa grows as a character.
I grew up in tropical Panama, where the confluence of sea, sand, and too much coconut water converged to inspire me with wander lust. I’ve lived on three different continents and done a few things I hope my children never find out about—or my mother for that matter! I am now settled in the congealed climes of northern Britain, where cold nights, dark skies and a perfect view of the stars have inspired my imagination to wander farther than ever before. Space fascinates me, and I love thinking up different planets and creating characters who don’t meet the traditional view of heroes or heroines, people who have to overcome their prejudices or battle the odds to find their happy every after—with a few sexy surprises thrown in!
