Publisher's Summary

Section K Replication Alluthan Clone, or Krac as he is now called, has one focus in his life: protect the descendants of the Freedom Five who rule Earth's council. Things become personal when insurgents target a special member of the Freedom Five, Gracie Jones-Jefe and her family. When Violet Jefe is kidnapped, Krac swears to do everything he can to bring the precocious little girl, who is the image of her mother, home safely and kill those who took her.

Captain "Skeeter" Lulu Belle Mann lives a life of freedom drifting from spaceport to spaceport in her short-haul freighter looking for unusual treasures to add to her collection of mismatched prizes. On the Pyrus space station, she finds two treasures she has to have! One is the new navigation module she desperately needs, and the other is a curly haired little girl with big green eyes that melts her heart. Never one to be denied what she really wants, Skeeter buys the first and steals the second.

When sources lead Krac to the Lulu Belle, he finds more than he expects - a woman who fires his blood almost as much as she draws it. Krac's hands and life are suddenly overflowing; he has to capture the woman who is driving him crazy, protect little Violet, and keep them alive long enough to deliver one home and the other to his bed. But someone else has targeted Skeeter and the Lulu Belle, and they are just as deadly as Krac. Can he protect the feisty firebrand that has captured his heart, or will he lose the only thing he has ever cared about to another of his kind?

Captivating

Once again Smith has left me wanting more and in the edge of my seat. I love that the women have their own minds, that the men are strong but consider their women and that none of them are perfect. Can't wait for her to write the next installment!!!

more please!

I love this series and want more of the story! There is a H.E.A. and it does finish up well but there is a type of cliff hanger where you just want more of the series storyline. I suggest start with book one, which is amazing, and read in order as published! I am sure the third is in the making but I can happily read 'Dusten', book five in another series she has going, which is awesome! the narrator is the best and I am so glad he is being used by her books! His voice is truly an actor's gift that I am happily noticing more often in the audible book area! I sure hope as time goes on, there are more great story tellers voices who join this artistic medium!

Beautifully read Sci-fi romance

David Brennan did a fabulous job narrating this wonderful sci-fi romance by S E Smith. Listening to the story brings additional enjoyment of the book than reading it alone does. Beautifully done.

4 Krac's Firebrand Stars

I enjoyed this book, not as good as book 1 but I did like getting to see Krac get his HEA.

Skeeter is just the one to take one Krac, she sees what other do not. And she sees who and what Krac is and that he needs someone who sees him for the man he is.

I loved that Skeeter got to speak to her father and tell her what she really wanted.
And that her father listened without judgment. I loved this!!

We did get Gracie and Kordon too so that was a bonus <3

Loved the narration <3

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Inner beauty

This narrator continues to impress me everytime I hear him.
I loved the story. I wish that there was just a little bit more but I guess I will have to wait until the next book comes out. I have read several of this author's books and I love the fact that some of the other aliens are mentioned. It makes it feel like they all could be one big happy family.
When Krac was rescued he swore that he would defend the Freedom Five families. So when Gracie Jones daughter Violet was kidnapped, he swore that he would do whatever it took to return the little girl.
While on this mission he has discovered a plot by someone to get Gracie because of her knowledge of the Alluthians. He finds Violet but she isn't with her original kidnappers.
Lulu Belle AKA Skeeter found the little girl and took her on board her ship. Skeeter in a very clumsy human who accidentally causes trouble where ever she goes.
Travel along with Krac and Skeeter as they track down more information on the Mastermind behind all of the trouble. They also discover that Krac is not the only one of his kind that survived

Derailed series

Smith writes a type of light romantic scifi-action-adventure-suspense that I enjoy as a time out from the “real world“. (I really enjoyed her original Valdier series.) In that genre, she tends to do a good job of creating likable characters in an interesting world; and with “bad guys” and action that fits within the world she has created.
This book appears to me to be an exception. The story escalates the number of loose ends so you’re not sure where she’s coming from - or going to; and evil menace to a level that’s paralyzing within those possibilities. There’s no lightly outlined trail that would fit within the story, series, or genre. You’re left with no real happy story ending or expectation of where the series arc might be going. Oh well.

I enjoyed book 1, Gracie’s Touch, and I thought Krac was an interesting character, so I was happy to see more of him. And some more of Gracie and Kordon.
Lulubelle starts out as a fun, campy character but ends up not fitting in with the menace of the plot. Her intelligence was not developed enough to believe she would be a good match for Krac.
Our glimpse of Violet Jefe at the end of book 1 told us what a strong willed little girl she is. But as young as she is, she would still be traumatized by her kidnapping and the abuse she would have suffered. As evil as Smith painted the kidnappers, she would have been abused. No question.
The Medic is so over emphasized and, instead of being caring, seems to exude a kind of menace.
The Zion Warriors had potential as a series, but I can’t imagine how Smith can rescue it.
Overall, I’m not going to count her out, as Smith is very creative;-)
Brenin does his usual good job of narration.

Krac And Skeeter

This is a wonderful story of a very uninhibited human and the man she sees in the “monster”. It is really funny to hear this huge assassin learn about sex from a very funny light hearted redhead. This truly is their own love story. I recommend it for its light story and definitely the humor. There is a wonderful message about perception and belief, thanks to the red head little orphan who believed in dragons of rescue. You will love this story.

Not as good as book one but, I enjoyed it!

I enjoyed this book but, not as much as book one. For one thing, it is quite a bit shorter and longer is almost always better.(get your mind out of the gutter, I was referring to length of the book). This book continues to work to solve the mystery that starts in book one. Although another big piece of the puzzle is solved, the overall issue is not solved at the end of book two, either. Therefore, I am looping book three will be released.
One interesting note, in this book, is that the Hero not the Heroine, is a virgin. This led to some awkward but funny, lines in the dialogue.
As with book one, the narration was awesome. Mr Brenin will definitely be a name to look for.
Had I Noticed that there were only two books released, from this series, I would have waited to choose these books. That being said, I did enjoy these angst free listens.

Disappointing

I loved the first book in this series, so it made this book even worse.
Krac is a great male protagonist, but “Skeeter” (the female protagonist) is an idiot. And I can not stand reading/ listening to stupid characters.
Unfortunately I listened to the whole book hoping that it could get better. It didn’t.

Great fun!

Laugh out loud funny, sweet and sometimes sad, this is a wonderful story. Far from the too-perfect Gracie, in the previous book in this series, Skeeter is delightfully imperfect. Krac's befuddlement with her is hilarious and sweet by turns. The relationship between them makes a surprising amount of sense, despite their very different characters, as they both find the acceptance they need. The moments of sadness mix smoothly with the humour, giving the story greater depth. The narration is generally good, although the sex scenes sometimes made me wince!
