    A sexy space adventure

    A crazy hot adventure story, with some pretty kookie characters and quite a few unbelievably jaw dropping, eye popping encounters. Your mind will be reeling and a number of expletives and "what the hells" will leave your mouth as you read through this series of 3 fast-paced, action-packed novellas. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.

    First part in a three part serial

    Rescued by the Space Pirate is the first part in a three part serial written by Nina Croft. If you don't like cliffhangers, you should hold off until the third part is published - which is in about two weeks. I have long been a fan of Ms. Croft and was excited to see her enter the alien romance sphere. It is made rather clear what influences Ms. Croft drew upon for both her male hero and the space environs her heroine found herself within. If the numerous references to Princess Leia and Han Solo don't make it clear, the introduction to Killian, our hero, surely does. Killian is a space pirate, who has a bounty on his head, a blue alien second named Zak, and a space ship meant for speed, rather than fighting. I found Killian to be an interesting character and enjoyed his scenes. I can't figure out, on the other hand, whether Ruby - our heroine - is just incredibly naive and lives in a fantasy world, or is just too stupid to live. Apparently, aliens have been visiting Earth for years, even though Earth is technically a 'closed' planet. Her boss is Earth's representative to the Federation. When his daughter, Yolanda, is kidnapped, he creates a situation for Ruby to volunteer to find her. This situation results in Ruby being fired from her job and her boyfriend breaking up with her once he is given a career opportunity too good to pass up. It is only then that he presents his proposal: she gets captured by slavers, finds his daughter, and then they are both rescued. After doing this, she will be given her dream job with his company. Ruby, who has longed to travel into space, sees no problem with agreeing and does so even though her former boss didn't bother to ask her if she wanted to do this before being fired for no cause. Apparently space is too big a lure for her to ignore. Ms. Croft does not shy from exploring kinky alien sex - there is a scene with tentacles, as well as a menage scene - and her aliens are not necessarily humanoid in shape. I can't tell if Ms. Croft is subtly parodying the recent trend of alien erotica, or if she just wants to see how far she can push the envelope. Despite her recent break up, Ruby demonstrates little sorrow at it. Ruby's dedication to her goal is puzzling. As far as the reader knows, she has no undercover experience or training and absolutely no connection to Yolanda (who is an adult and not a child). Despite this, she is determined to find and save Yolanda for reasons that are never really explained. For all that I can't connect to Ruby, I am interested enough in the plot to read further. There a clearly a conspiracy afoot and that intrigues me. 3 Stars
