Publisher's Summary

Can love alone save the day? Award-winning author Linnea Sinclair returns with a vibrant interstellar thriller of romance and adventure in which two lovers are tested in the crucible of deep space.

Before her court-martial, Captain Chasidah Chaz Bergren was the pride of the Sixth Fleet. Now she's a fugitive from the justice of a corrupt Empire. Along with her lover, the former monk, mercenary, and telepath Gabriel Ross Sullivan, Chaz hoped to leave the past light-years behind - until the news of her brother Thad's arrest and upcoming execution for treason. It's a ploy by Sully's cousin Hayden Burke to force them out of hiding, and it works.

With a killer targeting human females and a renegade gen lab breeding jukor war machines, Chaz and Sully already had their hands full of treachery, betrayal - not to mention each other. Throw in Chaz's Imperial ex-husband, Admiral Philip Guthrie, and a Kyi-Ragkiril mentor out to seduce Sully, and not just loyalties but lives are at stake. For when Sully makes a fateful choice, changing their relationship forever, Chaz must also choose between what duty demands and what her heart tells her she must do.

    "GREAT Series - Book 2"

    This is book two that continues the story told in book one of Sully and Chas. This series really is incredibly well written, with a lot of action, solid sci fi, and just the right amount of romance. So many authors get romantic sci fi wrong - this series really is the standard for the genre.

    The narration was fine - I just wish she had not done accents (Sully had something that was a cross between British, SA, and Australian - really weird and off-putting, especially when no one else had one like it).

    "Disappointed"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The original book, and story had a great scifi theme. Some sexual connotation, but still adventure. In this book, the author spent most of the time on a sexual theme. I had a hard time enjoying a scifi book, when it kept jumping into a romance novel.
