"Can two strong persoanlites find the love they need?"
If you are reading this review, you have access to a
computer. If you have a computer, you should go
immediately to New Concepts Publishing and download this
book. Autumn Dawn's book, Ride the Stars, is a superlative
example of why this genre is going nova!
Jaide Calanarie has no use for men; None whatsoever. She
has been betrayed (or ignored, which is worse) by all the
men in her life. She refuses to experience emotional
attractions; relying on a special tea to turn "off" her
hormones. Problem solved. She is a top notch pilot and
augmenter, totally focused on work and getting out of debt.
Skye D'rath is a Dragonlord. The Draconian race settled in
Antarctica when their planet was destroyed. They are
arrogant, impatient, reclusive and overly protective of
Skye meets Jaide when his Captain approaches her partner to
hire her for a special augmentation to their ship. When
the ladies don't sign the contract immediately, they kidnap
them. (Did I mention that Dragonlords are arrogant and
impatient?) The fun is just beginning.
Jaide is a spunky, scared, defiant, hurt, intelligent woman
who longs to be loved. Skye is all Alpha. He is sexy,
sharp and cunning, yet honorable. He chases criminals and
spies, while trying to protect Jaide. Of course she wants
to help him and has no patience with staying still and
being protected. Both are extremely accomplished at
getting their own way. Skye and Jaide's relationship
strikes sparks off the stars.
This book is both hilarious and heart wrenching. I read it
breathlessly and was impressed by the depth of the
characters portrayed. The Draconians are wonderful and I
want one of my very own. This book is a keeper, and when
it comes out in paperback, I will plunk my money down and
take two....one to keep and one to addict others with.
