On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she's captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn't prepare her for.
When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure - with a passion she's never before experienced.
Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she's giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn't part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?

This is a thrill ride with science fiction, military, medical… and of course erotic spanking romance. Dr. Lara Simmons encounters many challenges as she tries to heal the war wounds on Jesel. Not the least of which is Blade. She learns quickly, exactly what is meant by his moniker, the hand of vengeance.
I’ve read and listened to several of Renee Rose’s books and she never fails to exceed my expectations. This is also my third experience listening to Sierra Kline read. She is fast becoming my favorite reader.

Oh man, the freaking story line was amazing. I love, love romance/erotica books but sometimes they are just sex but not this book. The story was Great and full up twist and turns that were not the typical I knew that would happen. I think Laura was a very strong woman and so I loved her character. Blade....Oh boy....he was just all sexy cave man!!! I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to the
I might would compare it..Nope, It is in a class of its own. Honestly I think that the story line from what I read was very original and just well written.
This Narrator was great, she read this book like it was a true story, with different emotions, great voices and not like a slutty sci fi erotica book. I mean the Narrator can take a great book and make it horrible but Sierra took a great story and made it more......
Some women just need a hand, a firm hand, a hand of Vengeance. lol
Great Book I will be reading more from this author and more books narrated by Sierra Kline.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
That Hand of Vengeance really used his hands. A dark romance if you like 'em. Not for when you're in a Nora mood. Narration ok, but not on the super sexy level.
This story was really entertaining, just note there are a lot of BDSM qualities to it. The heroine is a doctor who goes to where she's needed as part of a charitable mission. In the story she's helping heal wounded on a war torn planet when she's kidnapped, by supporters of the rebellion. The man who is to take her to the secret camp, the hero, is s grim domin
I have to say this book stands above and beyond all the other si/fi books I have listened to or read. You painted a very vivid picture while keeping me entertained with the story line. The female and male roles were strong. I loved both characters. Thank you so much for the epilogue. It just made the book even better. I recommend highly. Great steamy romantic, with a good amount of angst. Just wanted to also add the narrator was great.
The Hand of Vengeance began with Dr. Lara Simmons being taken by the group of rebels lead by Blade Vengeance. Without knowing what Lara was kidnapped for, Lara did everything she could think of in escaping.
Blade has only one mission which is to bring Dr. Lara Simmons to perform an emergency surgery which would save the rightful exiled President's life and restored her to power. Lara refused to obey his rules which are to keep her safe. The only thing that Blade could do was to discipline her by spanking.
What Lara didn't count on was that her traitorous body like being spanked by Blade and has her sexually aroused. Tried as she might, she can't help but admired Blade for his heroic actions in freeing his people from the slavery.
The story is very well written and told from Lara and Blade's point of view. Both characters came from a different background. Lara couldn't trust Blade that he would keep her save and to keep his word that she will be released after she has completed a task for the rebels. Blade couldn't offer Lara anything after being a slave and a freedom fighter.
Blade didn't planned on falling for Lara. She was a distraction that he cannot afford when preparation for the final strike of the revolution against the tyrant in power.
Another thing I like about the story is that the relationship develops between Lara and Blade. Even both are at odds with each other, they develop a mutual understanding of each other roles.
The story is very well-balanced between the storyline, conflicts, and submissive spanking sex. This is one audible book that I will listen again.
The narrator, Sierra Kline does an excellent job in narrating the story. I love the tone and infliction of her voice for each of the characters. The narrator's voice held my attention and has me hooked to the story. I couldn't wait to listen to the rest of the story and really wanted to blow off work except that I can't.
I was given this audiobook by the narrator via Audiobook Blast and voluntary wrote a review for the book. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Renee Rose knows how to capture your attention from the beginning and keep it throughout the entire story! Loved the kidnapping of the doctor and listening to the dominance of her warrior and the way their love story blossomed!
I really liked this book, it had a bit more of a dom/sub relationship going on than I expected but it was very enjoyable overall. If spanking turns you off, this might not be the book for you, because there are a lot of mentions of spanking in this book. I liked how honorable both the characters were and they also seemed believable in a way most characters in novels aren't. I got this book in exchange for a honest review
