Nala Vestria has lost her freighter, her crew and her father, only to become personal maid to a cyborg. Stag is surly, short-tempered, and completely untrusting of humans…not to mention intense, commanding, and maybe the hottest being Nala has ever seen. When she finds him temporarily at her mercy, Nala isn’t sure if she wants to kill him or kiss him. Then again, life is short. She opts for the latter.
Nala swiftly becomes a distraction Stag can’t afford, especially after he’s had a carnal taste of what the woman has to offer. He’ll take her back to Garden, his home planet, and be rid of her—as well as the emotions she evokes. But as their journey home becomes harrowing, Nala may prove to be more of an asset than a liability. To both the ship…and the lonely cyborg who commands her.
If you started the series here, I am not sure you would keep going.
There needs to be much more complexity for most aspects of the book.
I read the whole thing and enjoyed it on a certain level with the surprise action, the crew, the heroine’s backstory and skills, and the moments of sweetness.
Other parts were not good. The heroine comes really close to forced seduction of the hero. They both hold on to stereotypical ideas for too long to give a full romance and the end is just rushed. We get very little time with them in a relationship which I like especially in a Science Fiction Romance where there is culture shock.
