Kirillian Harmony Knox was one of the most successful bounty hunters in the galaxy—until a brain-eater named Prime became her only failure and escaped, landing her in jail. Now free, she'll stop at nothing to catch him and stop his murderous rampage.
Unfortunately for Harmony, fellow hunter Bart Tanner has the only available transport. Arrogant and ruthless, Tanner is known for killing most of his bounties. Harmony can't stand him—yet she can't deny the deep sexual desire sparking between them.
Once enslaved as a cage fighter by a cruel Kirillian, Tanner harbors a deep hatred for the alien race—though he's drawn to Harmony's luscious sensuality, and they soon indulge in erotic encounters.
When Prime puts out a hit on Harmony, things intensify, and Tanner realizes their lust has turned into something deeper—but if he and Harmony aren't careful, more than just their lives will be at stake...
This is going to be a quick review - I'm STILL sick, but I wanted to get this out since I read it a bit back...
Harmony is a tough ass chick who is determined to get the one who got away. The one probably isn't who you think though. The Prime is an alien who has been out killing the peaceful people of the universe. You see, Harmony is a bounty hunter. When she gets released from prison (don't ask, she's already pissed enough about it) her ride wasn't exactly who she hoped it would be.
Tanner doesn't exactly like Harmony - they have a bit of a competition going on -and he despises her race, cause they forced him to compete in tournaments. But the two of them sizzle and can't help themselves.
Together, unwillingly (thanks to their boss Edna - who I keep imagining as Edna from the Incredibles), they have to work together to go capture the skips -those doofuses who skip out on their bail?
There were definitely some amazing scenes - sizzling, edge of your seat, suspenseful - just to name a few descriptors!
This book reminded me of a cross between Firefly and Star Trek. If you liked those, you will most likely enjoy this book!Pages: 192
