Wicked Attraction

Wicked Attraction is the second book in Megan Hart’s The Protector trilogy in which the three books tell one overarching story – which means there are spoilers for book one in this review. In Dangerous Promise, the author made a terrific job of building her vision of the world of the late twe ...

Dangerous Promise

Megan Hart is best known for writing erotica and erotic romances so I already know from past experience to expect some high quality sex scenes in her writing.  However Dangerous Promise goes in a whole new direction than her previous books. The first in a futuristic sci-fi romance series entitled T ...

Melting Iron

When I came to write this review of Laurann Dohner’s Melting Iron, I realized that what I remember most about the reading experience is a sense of disappointment. You know why? Because when I read that the hero is a cyborg, I imagined mechanical body parts used in sex. Resistance is futile. The fa ...

War Games

Having thoroughly enjoyed Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy (book one in her Atrophy series), I’m keen to read more of her work, so while I wait for the next Atrophy book to appear, I decided to pick up War Games, which is the fourth and final novel centring around the UEF battleship Valiant Knox. I haven ...

Contingency Plan

Contingency Plan is the second book in Robyn Bachar’s Galactic Cold War series. Set in an alternate future in which the Cold War never ended, the series follows the crew of the privateer spaceship Mombasa as they follow the trail of a super weapon developed by the Soviets that may paint the entire ...

Breeder

The space slave may not be quite as ubiquitous in SF as the duke in historicals, but she (and it’s nearly always a she) is certainly at “trope” levels. Breeder provides an acceptable execution of this plotline, but delivers neither the depth of worldbuilding I look for in an alternate reality ...

Atrophy

I admit that I hadn’t realised, going in, that A is part of a series in which there is an overarching story that runs through all the books (there are three so far).  Still, it’s a thumping good read and I’m sufficiently invested in that particular plotline to want to read the other books - ...

Relaunch Misson

This is the first in Robyn Bachar’s new Galactic Cold War series of science-fiction romances, and when I saw it touted as  ‘Firefly meets James Bond’  I couldn’t resist! Set in a future in which the Cold War never ended, the story features the crew of the privateer ship Mombasa as it op ...

Wanted and Wired

Wanted and Wired takes our obsession with technological advancements to the nth degree while exploring ideas about how the human heart survives when the head has gone to the machines.  It’s an interesting idea that’s perfect for a Science Fiction story; however it gets rather convoluted when ro ...

Wanted and Wired

Sci-fi romances are kind of hit or miss for me. Still, the synopsis of Wanted and Wired, the first book in Vivien Jackson's Tether series, really grabbed my attention. Who doesn't love action-packed, futuristic romances featuring competent leads falling in love while on the run? I know I certainly d ...
