Space Invader steals time for loveThoughts on Quantum: *makes excited noises over a new sci-fi romance by an author I enjoy*
Ex-soldier turned space pirate Tey Raider is visiting Earth to steal a fortune and use one of the Red Rock vortexes to escape into the deep black. When he bumps into Sophia West, he has no idea the human woman will throw a wrench into the hyperdrive of his master plan, and spin him, his storm cruiser, and his heart out of control.
Sophia doesn’t believe in aliens until a Sedona-based dating agency mixer puts her in direct contact with out-of-this-world clientele. She’s undercover trying to locate her brother—abducted and tortured by the big-brained bully, Nimbus. She strikes a hard bargain with Tey Raider to help her find and free her brother. Never mind that the haunted ex-soldier makes her want to reach out and make an alien connection.
The mission leads to a close encounter, and when the red dust settles, neither will be the same.
*doubles down on the excited noises when the words "space pirates" pop up*
Guuuyyyyys. I love me some space pirates. LOVE 'EM! Make the pirate a soldier with a complicated past and a desire to find his place in the future and I'm SMITTEN.
That said, when we first met Raider I wasn't sure how I felt about him. He's a guy who keeps his emotions close to the vest. Actually, he doesn't think he has much in the way of emotions. Which is interesting because he certainly feels things when Sophia is around. Being a hardened soldier (and the circumstances behind THAT are kinda heartbreaking), Raider is trying to get in, complete the mission he's set for himself, and head out to grab his prize.
Sophia and her brother are a wrench in his carefully constructed plan. As is finding others like him.
As for Sophia, she'd dumped in the middle of a very dangerous situation and I totally blame her brother for that. A little communication can go a long way. But that's neither here nor there. Sophia is determined and quick on her feet and both those things are needed when Raider and all the other alien stuff is thrown at her.
Bottom line: I liked this book. Quite a bit. There's danger and aliens and more danger and a couple of kickass ex-soldiers doing what they do best. *thumbs up*
