Publisher's Summary

Fighting for love, honor, and freedom on the galaxy's lawless outer rim.....

Space marine Blaine Strong enjoyed being a composed, controlled member of space station security...until he was abducted by alien slavers. Forced into underground fight rings and pumped full of drugs, he's now seething with anger and out for revenge.

Rescued by gladiators and fellow humans on the desert world of Carthago, Blaine is fighting to be the man he once was. But when the House of Galen is attacked, he must focus on joining the gladiators to fight back. That means teaming up with a tough, competitive female gladiator who not only challenges him at every turn, awakens a fierce desire he's never felt before, but a woman who can sense the churning emotions inside him.

Gladiator Saff Essikani is the best net fighter in the Kor Magna Arena. Raised from young to fight, she bows to no man and uses her empathic abilities to win at whatever cost. With her House targeted and people under their care threatened, she'll stop at nothing to find those responsible. But then she finds herself face to face with a big, tortured man from Earth who affects her like no man before. As Saff and Blaine head into the desert to uncover a conspiracy, their incendiary desire flares hotter than the desert suns. But as Blaine's angry emotions rage out of control, Saff knows that unless he learns to embrace the man he is now, he has no chance of survival.

What an amazing series

I applaud you Anna Hackett. You have created a world like no other. Your words are an amazing visual art. I normally like reading a book, but I have to say the audiobook with Vivienne as narrator is so much better. Love this book with the H/ H as the main characters, it had action, drama, romance-just the right amount of steam-and all the good feels. Can't get enough of this series. Two more audio books to go.

The entire series

I absolutely love the entire Galactic Gladiators series. I have listened to over a hundred books and several book series and I will say most are pretty good but this series is my favorite by far!

Blain Strong!

No, my title is not a rip on hulk language, it is the main male character's name. This is book 4. They can be read as standalones, but you get so much more out of them if you read them from beginning to end in order.

Blain was on the security team of the space station when an alien race, the Thraxians, appeared and enslaved a group of humans ( Blain included -we find this out in an earlier book) He's been forced into a "to the death " fighting ring since his captivity, as well as being shot full of drugs to enhance his rage and brutality. Once rescued, he must fight to detox as well as reconcile all the things he was forced to do to survive. One of the House of Galen gladiators, Saff, wants to help him as much as she can, but they both have an interesting time of it when the pull of attraction becomes a factor.

I love all of Anna's books. Her writing is so well developed and complex that you really buy in that there must be a place like this somewhere, and while I don't want to be abducted, I wouldn't mind one of these gladiators for my own.

Narration is great as well.

This is a voluntary review of advanced copy.

Storyline is getting repetitive

Hoped for more variation in this book but disappointed that the characters and use of language is becoming boring and repetitive in book 5..
