Only Dianne Duvall's story was worth reading. The others were yawners and took too long to get into.

Too much sex, not enough plot. Certainly doesn't inspire me to go back and pick up the first in the series, nor seek the rest.

Tattooed, muscled, and fierce, they look like felons; but these highly trained agents are humanity's protectors - the only ones standing between Earth and the threats of the galaxy. They are the Star Guardians. A born geek, Juanita has dreamed of exploring the stars for as long as she can remember. Getting kidnapped by slavers from another planet? Not so much. If she's lucky, she might be able to convince the hot guy protecting her from the others to help her escape.

Way too many references to Earth sci-fi culture, i.e. Star Trek, Star Gate, etc. The heroine comes across as a nerdy (maybe college) freshman, with a crush.

The story was very slow-going. Nothing wrong with the narration. I felt the struggle for speech by the Duke. That was genuine. But there were times when I wanted to yank the words right out of the heroine's mouth.

I could not get into the first two stories at all. But then, they are not my favorite Austen novels. The others were chopped up, apparently due to time constraints, and left out key descriptive parts of the stories.
