Quickie Review: Tiger of Talmare by Nina Croft

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Melissa Stark will take on just about any job as long as the price is right. But this particular job she would gladly take on for free because Captain Zachary Knight has been a thorn in her side ever since she stole his starship ten years ago.

Back then he was a genuine hero and poster boy for the army's hybrid breeding program. Now things have changed. Zach has been accused of a massacre on the planet of Talmare and is being shipped home to stand trial. But certain influential people want to make sure Zach never reaches Earth and Mel and her crew on The Revenge have been hired to intercept him and return him to Talmare.

It should have been easy money. The problem is, Zach is impossible to resist and once Mel gets her hands on him she's doesn't want to let him go. Now those same people are also after Mel.
My Thoughts: You guys know I'm a mood reader, right?  As in, I choose my books based on the mood I'm in.  Well, I was in the mood for some sexy, naughty sci-fi so I picked up this book.  To be honest, I could have gone with more sex, but I was still pleased with the book overall.  A lot of that had to do with Zach and his idiotic plan to seduce his way out of his problems.  Well, that and when he got caught with his hands down his pants.  I find that sort of stuff funny.

Spaceships, genetically engineered beings, telepaths, and a bad guy who's pretty bad all add up to fun in my book!

  1. A guy who tries to seduce his way out of his problems? What could possibly go wrong with that?

  2. Amanda: Good question. Normally, I'd say nothing but in this case there was a telepath on the ship who kept spilling his plans. Oops.
