World building: 🌏🌍🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 🤭😮🥰
The heroine: Danica Miller – she is the captain of a space ship and leader of a group of female bounty hunters in space. They chase and capture escaped bad guys throughout the galaxy and are good at their jobs. The captain of a mysogynistic rival bounty hunter ship tries to steal their bounty and sabotages their ship, stranding them on a desolate planet after saying he doesn’t think women have any business being bounty hunters, but in truth it is because he can’t take it that they are better than he and his crew and have been taking all the large bounties.
The Hero: K’alvek – he left the Oasis and is on on a trek alone across the dessert. He is hunting sand serpents and only thinks of getting revenge. He wants to avenge his father’s death against their enemy (the Krusteks) whom the new leader of the clan has signed a peace treaty with. He was so angry with the clan leader that he left on a solo hunting trek and to spy on the Krusteks.
The Story: After Danica and her crew crash land on a sand planet, they are unable to see any food or water in the vast dessert emptiness. Prior to the crash, while knocked out, Danica dreams of a Gold skinned man with hard ridges. K’alvek has a vision of a female that looks nothing like the Dothvek females he has seen before and feels a pull toward the crashed ship he saw fall out of the sky. He thinks the woman may be on the ship and he is overpowered with a need to protect her as she seemed fragile and not all the races on the planet protect the females the way his does.
I am loving alien romance lately, it is great if you want something lighter and smuttier than some of the other romance genre’s. I like the idea of the 7 foot tall broody aliens who have empathic abilities in this book. In this series the ability to tell what each other is feeling is similar to being able to read each other’s minds. It is like they can almost talk to each other in their heads. Danica is K’alvek’s mind mate and she not only sees him in her dreams, she can tell what he is feeling as well.
