I picked this up on a whim, as I was looking for science fiction romance novels. Unlike several others I picked up, this one proved interesting and well-written. I enjoyed the characters, the story and the romance. Some of it was a bit contrived - the whoops-we-are-naked parts - but the world-building was interesting enough that I just rolled my eyes and keep reading. This is a pleasing summer read. Oh, and just ignore the cheesy cover.
Prude Note: There are three major sex scenes, all of which can be skipped with no loss to the story. They aren't graphic, mostly the normal romance novel stuff, if a bit contrived. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 050552547X, Mass Market Paperback)

Galactic smuggler Angel Torrence resented Colonel Nicoli Romanof from the first order he barked at her. His disembodied voice – arrogant and bossy – blared out of the Icarus’s control panel, not to thank her for rescuing him and his ship from the terrorist attack, but to instruct her to set a course for the most perilous planet in the solar system.

On the riskiest mission of his career, Nicoli had allowed his life essence and his physical form to be separated. And the Harvestors had taken the bait – his body. Now he needed the cocky pilot who’d stolen his vessel to help him retrieve his person and destroy the deadly race of aliens. Then he discovered the young man was a woman, and he kissed his chances of success goodbye.

When Nicoli refused her assistance because of her gender, Angel would have moved heaven and earth to prove she was up to the task. But she never expected the colonel’s physique to be so magnificent – or his heart to be so courageous. And when a passion she couldn’t deny flared between them, she wondered if they’d found love or flown…Too Close To The Sun.
