"An entertaining erotic story with a surprising amount of action and intrigue"
The Starlight Chronicles 2
Trey York's mission should have been a simple one. The
young pilot has been employed to transport Armada and Lt.
Thorne to Rapt One. The colony's massive generator has
been malfunctioning and the governor has personally
requested an outside assessment. So why are they being
greeted by six fighter jets and armed guards in anti-
Larik Armada is blond, handsome, and wicked smart. The
civilian engineer has been recruited for the mission and is
considered to be the best in his field. His expertise is
unmatched, yet his willingness to stick to military
protocol leaves much to be desired; thus Lt. Thorne's
inclusion on the mission.
Beautiful and all business, Lieutenant Aspen Thorne is a
half-breed; Part S-species and part human. Her assignment
is to assist Armada with the assessment and repair of the
defective generator, but when a biological attack on Rapt
One forces the crew into an involuntary quarantine, her
duty and priorities take a drastic turn. York, Armada, and
Thorne's status suddenly changes from respected colleagues
to prisoners of war thereby subjecting Thorne to the
conditions of Regulation 051 -- a regulation that requires
female military personnel to provide sexual release for
their male counterparts.
York and Armada waste little time taking advantage of
Thorne's commitment to her duty and the pleasure is hers as
well as theirs. While held captive, Armada hacks into a
secured system and discovers a terrorist plot tied to the
faulty generator. Soon the trio find themselves fighting
to escape a ruthless enemy and forced to come to terms with
some of the unexpected consequences of their unconventional
relationship. In the end, who will be the odd man out?
Armada or York?
THE COVENANT is an entertaining erotic story with a
surprising amount of action and intrigue. Wolfe's second
tale of The Starlight Chronicles features two heroes
who are sexy and intelligent, yet they never dominate or
overwhelm the heroine in a way that is common in many
ménage stories. Thorne's ignorance of her own body may
annoy some readers and the ending may seem an optimistic
stretch, but for a quick and steamy sci-fi romance THE
COVENANT is definitely worth checking out.
