    Sassinak by Anne McCaffrey (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Sassinak and Gabriel's Ghost are both entertaining adventure/space opera stories with a strong female protagonists, though romance plays a larger role in Gabriel's Ghost.

    The Price of the Stars by Debra Doyle (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Price of the Stars is a swashbuckling space opera adventure with a charming ruthless smuggler (in disguise) caught up in political intrigues. Gabriel's Ghost is a fast-paced space opera romance story also with a charming smuggler (in disguise) also caught up in political intrigue. Both are fun, quick adventures that kept me turning pages and had me itching to read the sequels… (more)

Read and enjoyed this - but I enjoyed it so much I immediately went on to the next book, before reviewing, so I'm going to have to try to remember what was in this one. I liked Chaz, Sully was annoying for most of the book - as layer after layer of his lies (mostly of omission, but still) were uncovered. Ren was great, although some of the lies were about him - but he's uncovered pretty early. I like most of the characters here - everyone is pretty fleshed-out, and have their own motivations for their choices. Interesting universe...I'd have liked to see a little more of the conflict from the average Joe's perspective, because from Chaz and Sully's POV, it was rather too blatant. But they had a lot of data most people didn't (also I think I'm drifting into the second book here). The romance was not to my taste - misunderstandings is one thing (and a trope I hate) but here the misunderstandings were deliberate and cultivated. Sully's Deep Secret was...well, let's say, if he wanted anything out of Chaz more than a passing friendship, he needed to tell her early and in detail - not hide things and ask her to trust him (by way of completely mistrusting her). Bah. But she managed to peel him, and still thought he was worthwhile (that was the surprising part...). She had a lot more patience with him than I would have, even if he was a brooding poet etc. Overall, I think it's an excellent SF story with an annoying romance attached. But as I said, as soon as I finished it I went on to the next book - it's definitely worth reading, and probably worth rereading. ( )

I read this for the Vaginal Fantasy Hangout book club, so I suppose I should review it somewhat. Though I usually enjoy sci-fi, and generally enjoy romance, this book was pretty lame. The female lead started out seemingly strong-willed, independent, fierce, everything you could want in a sci-fi/romance heroine. Halfway through the book she turns into this wishy-washy, muddled femme-bot without two brain cells to rub together and it felt like she was constantly turning to one male or another to save her. The hero in the book starts out as the rakish pirate type who you want to hate yourself for liking, but again, halfway through the book, I just ended up hating him. He lied to the heroine constantly, justified his actions with some sad tales of woe from his past, and never learned from his mistakes, so continued to do the same things over and over again through the second half of the book. I truly wanted to like the book, it had the potential to be an excellent story, the ideas were original (for the most part) some of the secondary characters were truly lovable and well written, but the main characters were the sort of people I would avoid in public places if I knew them in real life. I won't be reading the rest of the series, or probably anything else by this author. The only reason I even gave it two stars, was that I truly liked one of the secondary characters enough that he made it worth finishing the book. ( )

A shame there's no half star available in ratings. While it's not a perfect 5, it's worth more than a 4! I really enjoyed this story, and I can't wait to get my hands on the second in the series.

The book is fast paced, and slows down at the right moments. As soon as I read the first page I couldn't tear my eyes away - I simply had to know what was going to happen next. The balance between SciFi and Romance was well done, really well done. The characters were interesting, flawed and engaging.

Fans of the Romance genre - even if you're not a fan of SciFi, you should give this a go! ( )

It reads along the same lines as the Stardoc books. I'm probably going to have to read Sinclair's other books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553587978, Mass Market Paperback)

Award-winning author Linnea Sinclair brings her special sizzle to science fiction with this action-packed blend of otherworldly adventure and sexy stellar romance.…

After a decade of piloting interstellar patrol ships, former captain Chasidah Bergren, onetime pride of the Sixth Fleet, finds herself court-martialed for a crime she didn’t commit–and shipped off to a remote prison planet from which no one ever escapes. But when she kills a brutal guard in an act of self-defense, someone even more dangerous emerges from the shadows.

Gabriel Sullivan–alpha mercenary, smuggler, and rogue–is supposed to be dead. Yet now this seductive ghost from Chaz’s past is offering her a ticket to freedom–for a price. Someone in the Empire is secretly breeding jukors: vicious and uncontrollable killing machines that have long been outlawed. Gabriel needs Chaz to help him stop the practice before it decimates Imperial space. The mission means putting their lives on the line–but the tensions that heat up between them may be the riskiest part of all.
