Blurb: Mark Noland can’t figure out how he got into such a fix. How does an ex-mercenary (okay, an almost-reformed mercenary) get himself caught, stuck in a holding cell, on a hostile alien planet? Held captive by strange bug-like creatures who’d just as soon eat him as look at him. How can a simple mission go so awry? To make matters worse, Noland’s not alone. His fellow prisoner, a certain high-ranking, elite Stella officer holds him responsible for their failed plan. Yeah, it was supposed to be a quick in and quick out sort of mission. But no… Officer Gavnson just can’t let it go.
It’s not so easy trying to plan an escape when Noland keeps getting distracted by how his mission partner so very nicely fills out his uniform. And he suspects Gavnson is hiding something, too. As tensions run high, secrets are revealed that will change the both of them. There’s nothing like gunfights and running for your life to make that special bond.
Review: Mark was raised by mercenaries and became one. He is now, however an ex-mercenary. It would seem he does have a soul. To bad he is in a prison cell on a hostile planet. And guess what, his cell mate is none other than an high-ranking and very elite officer who he has the hots for. An officer who is blaming it all on him.
Short and very hot is what I would say this was. No sex, just kissing but hey you take what you can get. These two argue just like they are married so who knows. This author was new to me, so I wasn’t to sure what I was getting. However it was a fun little jolt to the system.
Although I do hope they manage to get some skin action in book two.
