Sinclair's style could be compared to what sort of novel might turn out if David Weber married Amanda Quick. Though Sinclair's writing is not nearly ..Show More »as erotic and Quick's. The story is written in first person. The first person character being a court marshaled starship captain imprisoned on an inhospitable planet, who happens to be a total cougar babe with hair too long to imagine, rescued by a roguish pirate who is more than he claims to be. Hair and mugs of tea are the big past time.... Everyone (guys and girls) brushes and braids each other's hair numerous times in this book. Though there's plenty of intrigue and action to keep anyone interested, the romance scenes could have been a little less "fuzzy soft fluffy pillow talk" and a little more action (Linnea, read more Amanda Quick). But this is a guy writing this. The ships and equipment could use a little more description (Linnea, read more David Weber). But then again, this is a guy reading this.
On the whole. It was an enjoyable story and I look forward to the next book in the series.
This is book two that continues the story told in book one of Sully and Chas.

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).

Linnea Sinclair really does get it right with this series. Heart pounding action, a LOT of surprises that aren't expected, pathos between characters,..Show More » and just the right dollop of romance - never over the top or eye rolling.
This is the fourth (and likely last) in the series. And it ended up being my favorite - less 'magical mysticism' of the first 2 books and straight out dockside action.
This series is highly recommended by me - loved every book immensely.
The one detractor for me were the narrators. The accents were all over the place (especially this last book's narrator) and really detracted from the story.
