Synopsis (Goodreads):
Can she survive the perils of the galaxy on her wits … or will she have to use her body?

Kiri te Nawa will do anything to escape the perilous streets of New Seattle, Earth II and find the treasure for which she searches the galaxy, even become the mistress of space magnate Logan Stark. But is he her savior, or simply the man who wants to own her sexually?

Just when she is ready to submit more than her body to this powerful, magnetic man, she's kidnapped and thrown into her worst nightmare. Will he search for her, or believe she's betrayed him with an old lover?

Set in the futuristic galaxy of The Orion Series.
Thoughts on Stark Pleasure: The Space Magnate's Mistress: I really liked what I've read of both the Orion and Frontiera series so finding out this series crossed paths with the others was pretty neat. Honestly, Logan is a pretty big player in this galaxy. Meaning, we get to see several familiar faces as he does his thing with his shipping empire.

Now Logan might be big stuff, but Kiri's just a determined business woman trying to keep herself afloat in a bad situation. Even after Logan steps in to help her, she has it in her head that she has to stand on her own two feet. Which is admirable. Given that she's lost EVERYTHING recently, she doesn't have a whole lot of choices at her fingertips and Logan's helping hand saves her in more ways than one.

Honestly, there was a lot I liked about this book. But then it's sexy sci-fi and I've never been shy about admitting my deep, deep love for sexy times set on distant planets. While we didn't get all the answers to the issues Kiri comes up against, I'm going to assume those will be addressed down the line. Because some of them were doozies and I can't imagine them being left hanging.

So bring on the brothers. I'm ready for them.
