"Red hot must read sci-fi!"
As a slave and working girl, Tavish didn't know what to
expect when a sexy bondsman came into the club to arrest
one of the high profile clients, Mendez. Soon enough, she
finds herself in the middle of the brawl and is taken from
the club by the bondsman, instead of Mendez. The bondsman,
or bounty hunter, Xave hustles her onto his spaceship,
takes her to his home planet, and sends her off with a
scorching kiss the likes she never had before.
Xave knew the moment Tavish got into the middle of the
fight for Mendez she was going to turn his life upside
down. Her sexiness and sassiness appealed to him, but his
life as a lone bondsman did not include the space for
Tavish. Unfortunately, he finds he cannot leave her even
though he still needs to bring in Mendez.
Can Xave watch over Tavish while hunting the criminal
Daggertail is simply a joy to read. Tavish and Xave
are extremely likeable characters, each flawed and
realistic. Together these two are amusing with their non-
stop banter and they light the pages of the book on fire.
As well as excellent characters, the world in
Daggertail is interesting. I found it interesting
the author developed a new set of prejudices common to the
people of the Daggertail world that Tavish and Xave
had to overcome.
Additionally, the plot pacing is well done. Most
interestingly, by the end of the story we find that Tavish
and the villain Mendez have a connection. Therefore, the
readers are left with a since of completion of this highly
enjoyable, well-told story.
Although Daggertail is complete as a stand-alone
story, there is a loose end I hope is developed into
another book. Definitely give this book a try. I highly
