"Super Adventure - Nice Sensuality"

Flying co-pilot on a United Flight #58 Jordan Cady was promoted to captain after the 747 she was flying was snatched from the sky and the pilot died of a heart attack. In the wake of 9/11 Jordan's first thought was that they had somehow been overtaken by terrorists -- but later discovering they were inside an alien spaceship, outside of earth's atmosphere, did nothing to ease Jordan's panic or the 300 passengers on board.

Using a language translator, Kao son of the spaceship commander was sent to communicate and assure the humans they would not be hurt. He tried to explain they had been rescued after a comet destroyed earth but did not have an easy time of it in convincing Jordan he came in peace. Scarred and tortured by the vile Talagars, Kao had lost the ability to feel, but after meeting Jordan Cady, he began to admire more than just her courage. Their mutual attraction would spark not only passion but threaten their very lives as they were pulled into the middle of a galactic war.

*** This was an amazing and deftly crafted SF/Futuristic romance that was original and fresh from an author who has burst onto the scene and making her presence known. It draws a lot from the authors experience as a real life commercial airline pilot and draws the reader right into the pilot's seat. Anyone who has ever flown will surely enjoy this exciting and imaginatively creative story, feeling the intensity of losing not only loved ones but an entire way of life.

I found this to be well-written and creative with aliens who were not monstrous looking but in fact, looked human. In fact Kao was human but from another planet in the galaxy. Their only difference was that they were well ahead of us technologically and the Talagars (the bad guys) were albino in looks, which might have been a point towards Jordan thinking they were abducted by terrorists. However, I could not easily dismiss this train of thought after having a 747 (one of the largest commercial airplanes) sucked into a dark giant vacuum with Jordan thinking it was a terrorist attack. This did not make sense as I would immediately have known it was an alien abduction considering something so big could engulf an entire 747 airplane. After 9/11 terrorists may be a threat, but in this world they simply do not have advanced technology of that proportion.

On the plus side, Grant created engaging characters, pulled at your emotions and kept the excitement and adventure at a fever pitch. In spite of my nit picking, I was thrilled and totally caught up in this story. Very entertaining, lovely emotional moments with just the right amount of sensuality.
