"An action packed sci-fi wrapped in a web of romance..."

Robin T. Popp writes a fabulous futuristic sci-fi romance that will keep you glued to the pages in breathless anticipation of what's to come. Too Close To The Sun is a well-rounded novel that leaves you completely satisfied, all the way from the primary characters to the secondary as well.

Angel Torrence is a woman who's been on the run from her homeland of Coronado since she was 15 years old. She will do whatever it takes to survive and not be thrown into a loveless marriage just to satisfy the politics of the high counsel and her grandfather. Thus she sets out to find her way in the universe and escapes on a spaceship. From there she makes her own way by turning to smuggling by piloting her own ship.

Colonel Nicoli Romanoff is a soldier in the USP Security Forces and determined to catch the Harvesters that are snatching humans up, removing their life essence and utilizing the various parts for their own immortality. Nicoli devises a plan with his good friend Yanur to remove his life essence and let the Harvesters take his body so as to infiltrate their holding and destroy them once and for all. The thing is Yanur must manage to track him and replace his life essence in order for this to succeed.

Worlds collided when terrorists attack and destroy Angels only source of freedom, her ship. In an effort to flee the attacker and saver her own life she proceeds to steal another ship. In the process she manages to help an older man (Yanur) to safety with her. Unbeknownst to Angel she has just entered Nicoli's ship and world. One that will push her boundaries, opens her heart, and challenges even her darkest fears.

I think sci-fi stories can be a little tricky to write, as you have to bring the reader into an unknown world and make them really believe and visualize the technology and vehicles that drive it. Robin T. Popp does this with great finesse and I found I could effortlessly follow the concepts she presented along with the incredible plot she wove in. There were so many twists and turns not only in the Angel and Nicoli's relationship, but also in the devious plans of the Harvesters.

This book holds a truly fascinating concept, with highly compatible characters, fantastic romance, and deeply disturbing villains. Is our leading man a tad alpha? Yes he is. Can our lead woman handle him? I think you'll just have to read the book and find out. And I don't think you will be disappointed! Fantastic book Robin!

Galactic smuggler Angel Torrence resents Colonel Nicoli Romanof from the first order he barks at her. His disembodied voice instructs her to set a course for the most perilous planet in the solar system. On the riskiest mission of his career, Nicoli allowed his life essence and his physical form to be separated. Now he needs the cocky pilot who's stolen his vessel to help him retrieve his person and destroy the deadly race of aliens. Angel will move heaven and earth to prove she is up to the task. But she never expects the colonel's physique to be so magnificent—or his heart to be so courageous. And when passion flares between them, she knows they've found love.
