High in sizzle, low in plot. Sit back, have fun, and just don't expect too much. ( )

reread in June - fun, both romantic and erotic. Short stories but felt rich in world building and detail and the lovers all worked. Rare beast indeed, with 3 short stories, all equally strong. A good find and and keeper.

Set far into the future, this anthology is set on the space ship Starrunner and each tale involves a different crew member (or 2). It's a hot, hot book. Angela Knight is a confident writer and the plot moves smoothly under her command. In the first (and strongest) story, Trinity Yeager, a young woman needs to escape her religiously stifling home world, and begs Captain Nathan August to take her aboard. He tests her mettle by saying she could only come as his sex toy, and much sex and toys ensue. The second book involves second in command Sebestian going undercover in a world devoted to Doms and Thralls and convincing a pretty dom that it's okay to want to be a sub. The last story has fighter pilot Cassidy captured by Rune, till the tables turn. I liked all three tales and they are all hot in their own way. There's all sorts of sex going on here, but while very explicit it never feels exploitative or cruel, which are my buttons, but if you find light bdsm or anal play not to your taste, then this isn't for you. I rate this book a keeper. ( )

HOT, HOT, EXPLICIT SEX. Three interconnected stories about the crew of a mercenary space ship. In the first story, Trinity accepts a deal with the Captain to spend the night with him, and his first officer, in exchange for passage off a puritanical planet where she is about to be auctioned off to a husband. In the second story, the first officer must integrate a society where men are submissives to female dominants in order to rescue a prince. The thirs story finds a female pilot from the crew crashed on a planet with an enemy pilot.

I bought this book at a yard sale for 25 cents. It was so good, I went to Amazon.com that same night to order all the author's other books. I was not disappointed. ( )

****½ "Trinity." Heroine asks merc cpt. to join his crew so she can escape the patriarchal planet she's on before she's auctioned off as a bride to the highest bidder. He tells her okay, if she agrees to be a sex toy for him & his 1st mate for 6 months--assuming she'll back out. She doesn't back out. I didn't completely buy them falling in love, but that wasn't really the point. Hot, hot, hot. Bondage & sharing, but there was also the development of respect.
**** "The Thrall." First mate from the previous story goes undercover on a BDSM planet to rescue a prince from a rival kingdom's evil dominatrix princess. Her younger sister was raised to be a dominatrix, but has submissive tendencies, which are seen as a perversion. Really good story, but it didn't grab me the way the first one did.
**** "Claiming Cassidy." Merc female pilot & enemy pilot stranded together after a battle. He challenges her to a "claiming duel." More world-building, less kink, and wouldn't you know it, I was disappointed. Good story, interesting universe she's made here, with the different cultures on different planets. Hope she writes more in this series. ( )

Trinity not only sees Nathan's bet. She raises it...
