Publisher's Summary

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

Raised from birth to be a soldier, Kace Tameron is a disciplined, military-trained gladiator. He is on contract to the Kor Magna Arena to hone his fighting skills on the blood-soaked arena sand and then return to the military. He lives for one thing: to protect his planet, and on his world, love is forbidden. But then he collides with a feisty redhead from Earth who threatens to shatter his legendary control.

One moment, Rory Fraser was an engineer on a space station circling Jupiter, and the next, she is abducted by evil alien slavers. After suffering at the hands of the Thraxians, she is rescued by her friends - with the help of the tough gladiators of the House of Galen. Rory finds herself outrageously attracted to straight-laced Kace. He is a skilled fighter, ultra-disciplined, and a hero at heart - but she knows passion beats within him, if only he'll let it loose.

Rory is obsessed with finding another fellow abducted female from Earth, but as she asks questions, she finds herself ducking bullets and explosions. Someone wants Rory dead. Kace steps in as her protector, and together, they embark on a dangerous mission that will take them deep into the bowels of the arena, and deep into a scorching desire...both of which could lead them to lose not only their guarded hearts, but their lives as well.

love!

Thorin and the rest of the House of Galen are searching for another human abductee on Carthago. As they continue the hunt, they encounter obstacles they must overcome. This book, like all of anna's, is well developed and can standalone, but is greatly enhanced as part of the larger series.

Love it!

As with her other series, Galactic Gladiators gets better with each installment. Each book centers on a different couple and at the same time, colors the world it's set in a bit more. Each couple is unique, with unique reactions to each situation. Vivienne Leheny is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. Her delivery is excellent, keeping each character unique and manages to stay in character for each voice conveying just the right emotion for the story.
There is plenty of action moving the plot along and great character development making this a thrill ride and a half. If you haven't started this series yet, grab Gladiator, Warrior and Hero and be prepared for a late night.

Sassy meets Structured and Sparks Fly!

Another fantastic addition to the Galactic Gladiators series! Our Hero is as clean cut military as they come. Raised from 3 years old to be a soldier, he is on Carthago to hone his battle skills before returning to his world. Enter Rory- fiery red-head with a bold and vivacious spirit. Between murder attempts and rescue attempts, there is a little time for Rory to attempt to seduce our most delicious gladiator. Fantastic, action-packed story with a surprise twist at the end. Nicely done Anna Hackett!!! A note about the Audible version: Vivienne Leheny brings emotion, inflection, and helps build on the written word with her creative voice. You will not be disappointed with this story- and I highly recommend purchasing the Audible version.

Another great Audiobook in this wonderful series

What makes these audio books even better is that Anna doesn't start from the beginning with each character that is found. Again another great visual listening with the same exceptional narrator Vivienne. The only complaint I have with this story is it had way more drama and angst then I cared for. But it still deserved 5 stars. Love these gladiators and the woman they fall in love with. Great ending to this one. On to the next!!!!

Holding out for a Hero

Enjoyable adventure drama, well written and well crafted. Sweet male MC and only v mildly stupid female MC, who of course puts her man in peril to save a near stranger. The sex scenes are more loving and affectionate as the female leads the male into experience. A nice way to spend 5hrs.

***Hero***

Book 3 starts out slow, it wasn't as intense as the first 2 books in this series so hence the 4 star rating. The narrator Vivienne Leheny is still as good though and able to give each character their own unique voice.
