"A space opera, with suspense, computer hacking, space battles and galaxy-wide threats"

Independent freighter captain Trilby Elliot has parked her ancient ship on an uninhabited planet to make repairs with the help of her robot, Dezi (who reminded me a bit of C3PO). When a ship crashes into the forest nearby, Trilby plans on salvaging the ship... FINDERS KEEPERS. Along with salvaging useful parts, she 'salvages' the pilot who is inconvenient though intriguing.

The arrogant pilot, Rhis Vanur insists Trilby immediately return him to his squadron as it is a matter of intergalactic security. Inadvertantly, she finds out that Rhis is really "T'var the Terrible", Senior Captain in the Imperial Fleet. Although his staff and crew are loyal to him, Rhis is a Superman-type character who has special skills but not 'people skills'.

Trilby is a 'people person' and used to running her own life. She experienced life in the "school of hard knocks" which has made her tough, given her a strong sense of right and wrong but weak self-worth. Trilby unwittingly finds herself a pawn in a political intrigues which involving her former boyfriend, both Intergalactic Alliances and their enemy the `Sko.

I can highly recommend this book as it has something for all fiction readers. FINDERS KEEPERS is NOT a typical "futuristic romance". The plot can be compared to a space opera, with suspense, computer hacking, space battles and galaxy-wide threats. This is part of the new 'romantic science fiction' genre that has solid scientific fiction and action and adventure that drives the story. Star Wars and Star Trek fans will appreciate this book and other books in this growning genre. Romance fans will not be disappointed as the 'happily ever after' comes after much excitement. Action and adventure fans will appreciate the intrigue and skillfully written adventure.

Now that they found each other, the universe won't know what hit it...

Blending hard SF with sizzling romantic suspense, Linnea Sinclair brings readers this red-hot adventure of two space outcasts on a collision course with destiny. Now that this star-crossed couple have found each other, the universe won't know what hit it...

Trilby Elliot is a barely legal independent trader. Rhis Vanur is the arrogant Zafharin military officer she rescued from a crash landing. It would have been a miracle if they survived each other's company on Trilby's slapdash starfreighter even under the best of circumstances. And these are far from the best of circumstances. For Trilby's best friend is missing and the warlike 'Sko are hunting both Trilby and Rhis. Suddenly they're in it together, for better, for worse--or until death blasts them to oblivion...
