Publisher's Summary

On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she's captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn't prepare her for.

When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure - with a passion she's never before experienced.

Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she's giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn't part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?

Non-stop action

Any additional comments?

This is a thrill ride with science fiction, military, medical… and of course erotic spanking romance. Dr. Lara Simmons encounters many challenges as she tries to heal the war wounds on Jesel. Not the least of which is Blade. She learns quickly, exactly what is meant by his moniker, the hand of vengeance.

I’ve read and listened to several of Renee Rose’s books and she never fails to exceed my expectations. This is also my third experience listening to Sierra Kline read. She is fast becoming my favorite reader.

In the line

This was a pretty good book until the end. The last great sex scene was boring then it went on to another epilogue with him massaging her clit while she gives birth. This is so implausible as to make the ending of the book destroy the mostly good book which came before

Alien Neanderthal meets civilized doctor!

She was doing what doctors over time and space, have always done, volunteered in war torn places, to assist anyone who was injured.
He was the one who had been the catalyst for the rebellion, when his sister had been assaulted and killed, something inside had flicked and he became the " Hand of Vengeance".
He had come for her, because the rebel leader needed her surgical expertise. The events that followed brought them together, with trust on her part and respect on his.
I go no further into the story, as it is a tale you need to read, or listen to..
I will give you warning as to the sexually exploit sequences within the context of the story, as with the use of corporal punishment, also within the culture in which our warrior belongs.
I love the freedom an audio rendition gives the listener, allowing you to multi task, whilst still enjoying a good story.

May be offensive to a stout feminist!

Ok, let me start by reminding everyone that this a work of fantasy fiction and should be evaluated, as such. The community that this book is set in is a true patriotically society. Meaning, Men and Women have roles similar to prehistoric times. Men are the hunters and protectors and women are gatherers and do the child rearing. Therefore, to enjoy the intent, of the author, a listener can use feminist values to evaluate the book; it’s make believe, remember?
The whole point is that the Heroine is so attracted to the Hero because of his Alpha ways; which are so different than she is used to. Therefore, there is domestic discipline and a sort of D/s power exchange between the Heroine and Hero. Hey, this makes this couple happy so don’t be critical, just enjoy this explicit, sexy love story. I did!!!!Honestly, I wish this would have been a series.

Great Intergalactic BDSM Story

The Hand of Vengeance began with Dr. Lara Simmons being taken by the group of rebels lead by Blade Vengeance. Without knowing what Lara was kidnapped for, Lara did everything she could think of in escaping.

Blade has only one mission which is to bring Dr. Lara Simmons to perform an emergency surgery which would save the rightful exiled President's life and restored her to power. Lara refused to obey his rules which are to keep her safe. The only thing that Blade could do was to discipline her by spanking.

What Lara didn't count on was that her traitorous body like being spanked by Blade and has her sexually aroused. Tried as she might, she can't help but admired Blade for his heroic actions in freeing his people from the slavery.

The story is very well written and told from Lara and Blade's point of view. Both characters came from a different background. Lara couldn't trust Blade that he would keep her save and to keep his word that she will be released after she has completed a task for the rebels. Blade couldn't offer Lara anything after being a slave and a freedom fighter.

Blade didn't planned on falling for Lara. She was a distraction that he cannot afford when preparation for the final strike of the revolution against the tyrant in power.

Another thing I like about the story is that the relationship develops between Lara and Blade. Even both are at odds with each other, they develop a mutual understanding of each other roles.

The story is very well-balanced between the storyline, conflicts, and submissive spanking sex. This is one audible book that I will listen again.

The narrator, Sierra Kline does an excellent job in narrating the story. I love the tone and infliction of her voice for each of the characters. The narrator's voice held my attention and has me hooked to the story. I couldn't wait to listen to the rest of the story and really wanted to blow off work except that I can't.

I was given this audiobook by the narrator via Audiobook Blast and voluntary wrote a review for the book. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.

I loved this sexy, dominant, paddling male!!!

What did you love best about The Hand of Vengeance?

First "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast com".
Oh man, the freaking story line was amazing. I love, love romance/erotica books but sometimes they are just sex but not this book. The story was Great and full up twist and turns that were not the typical I knew that would happen. I think Laura was a very strong woman and so I loved her character. Blade....Oh boy....he was just all sexy cave man!!! I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to the

What other book might you compare The Hand of Vengeance to and why?

I might would compare it..Nope, It is in a class of its own. Honestly I think that the story line from what I read was very original and just well written.

What does Sierra Kline bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This Narrator was great, she read this book like it was a true story, with different emotions, great voices and not like a slutty sci fi erotica book. I mean the Narrator can take a great book and make it horrible but Sierra took a great story and made it more......

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Some women just need a hand, a firm hand, a hand of Vengeance. lol

Any additional comments?

Great Book I will be reading more from this author and more books narrated by Sierra Kline.

The Hand Of Vengeance.

Loved listening to the audiobook, the story was written well and the characters are intriguing. The rebels tooke Lara the human doctor while she was in the midst of an operation. The rebels president had headaches constantly so they need a doctor and they wanted the best.
The narrator was clearly spoken and easy to understand.
