Another month has gone by and another galaxy full of scifi romances have released. I’ll cover four that stood out to me.
Yes, I’m going to talk about Anna Hackett again–she makes it impossible to ignore her, with a hot new series, Galactic Gladiators. Gladiator, the first book, was really good, and I have the second volume, Warrior, waiting on my kindle. Who can resist sexy space gladiators? The heroine is a human, Harper Adams, who happens to be a Space Marine assigned to a research station orbiting Jupiter when the story opens. She’s tough, smart, resourceful and an excellent fighter–I loved her. Some passing aliens who fell through a transient wormhole attack the station and seize a few people including Harper, before they escape again through the now vanishing portal. (No return to Earth will ever be possible.) Harper ends up being sold to be a gladiator on a desert planet who knows where. She’s determined to save herself and rescue as many of her friends as she can find.
Former prince Raiden Tiago was in her spot years ago, at age fifteen, but won his freedom and is now the champion of the House of Galen and the whole Kor Magna Arena. Not that the evil Thraxxians who destroyed his planet don’t make multiple, sneaky attempts to kill him. Raiden is HOT and has a good heart, even though he of course tries to deny it. He and Harper make an excellent team, in the arena and out of it; lots of chemistry.
