    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    In case I've failed to mention it in the past, I love romantic science fiction. For my own personal taste, there's always been a sorely lacking amount of good books in this genre. That's all changed, I'm happy to say! FINDERS KEEPERS by Linnea Sinclair takes romantic sci-fi to an all new level-a book that's equally balanced in the amount of science fiction, fantasy, high-tech gadgetry, plot, and romantic subplot that perfectly suits readers of both the male and female sex. <BR/><BR/>FINDERS KEEPERS was an absolutely brilliant choice of title. In the world of salvage, whether you're talking sunken pirate ships, undiscovered lost cities, or the wreckage from a Trahtark `Sko fighting vessel that has the bad fortune to crash into a planet, first come, first served. For lucky Captain Trilby Elliot, she gets the up-close-and-personal front row seat to the ships destruction, and hightails it on over to be the first to root through the wreckage. With her trusty DZ-9 Droid, Dezi, Trilby prepares to make off with the highly profitable, and somewhat dangerous, intergalactic garbage. <BR/><BR/>All would have been fine and dandy-and lucrative-if not for the fact that the ship's pilot, Imperial Senior Captain Rhis Vanur, a Zafharian military commander, who gives arrogance a bad name, is still alive, breathing, and kicking. Not to mention cursing. Trilby and Dezi have no idea what a Zafharian is doing in a Ycsko ship, and Rhis isn't in any hurry to enlighten them. Once he realizes that Trilby wasn't, in fact, taking him to the Conclave Security on the Quivera Station, he lightens up-but not by much. He still can't tell her who he really is. If he did, she'd immediately remember all the nicknames that had been attributed to him over the years. Even more so, she might fully understand why he was on that `Sko ship, and what he hoped to accomplish. <BR/><BR/>Emotions and tongues are both brittle as Trilby and Rhis butt heads over any and everything. Trilby's been doing just fine as an independent trader of the-mostly-legal kind. And as for Rhis, whose been engineered to show no emotion and focus only on his goal, this sharp-tongued she-devil is something he never bargained for. But now, they're both on the run from the `Sko, getting in deeper and deeper over their heads. Not only lives are at stake, but that of nations, as well. <BR/><BR/>A wonderful book by Ms. Sinclair, FINDERS KEEPERS is not to be missed. Science fiction at its best, filled with delightful characters and a hard-boiled plot, make this book one you'll be glad you found first.

    Excellent romantic science fiction

    Captain Trilby Elliot and her only companion Dezi the droid operate an obsolete outer space cargo ship when her intruder alarm noisily explodes, warning her of something nearing her vessel. The best she can hope for is a sizable fine that she cannot afford to pay when her binocs show only one ship, a high powered fighting Tra¿Tark that crashes onto the planet. Trilby feels her luck has changed as the ¿sko¿ from that wreckage should be worth a fortune for the FINDERS KEEPERS salvage of what is now space garbage to anyone but her. <P>However, Trilby finds one problem near the crash site as the pilot still breathes. Imperial Senior Captain Rhis Vanur informs Trilby that he is commandeering her ship and is kind enough not to maroon her on this isolated rock. As they become better acquainted they defy the astronomical odds and begin to fall in love. However, he is genetically engineered to have no emotions while someone needs her dead and wants her old ship with its seemingly ancient charts for no lucent reason. <P> Fan of romantic science fiction will enjoy this outer space adventure tale. If it sounds somewhat like Star Wars (loquacious droids, empires at war, etc.), it is to a degree, but the story line develops its own gravity due to the powerful lead couple. The audience will root for Trilby and Rhis to overcome their enemies and make it together. Linnea Sinclair has written a wonderful novel that has strong cross-genre appeal to those readers who take pleasure in an action-packed thriller. <P>Harriet Klausner

    I Also Recommend:

    Perfectly balanced sci-fi/romance

    I don't write that many reviews, I read a lot and it usually takes a very special book to get me to sit here and write about a book when I could be reading the next book I've got waiting for me. This is the first book I've read by Linnea Sinclair and wont be the last. Her ability to balance sci-fi with romance makes her books a great addition to the genre. Both Trilby and Rhis are likeable and strong characters and their battle with the 'Sko makes the book fast paced and exciting. There are certain moments in the book were I want to shake Trilby but she wouldn't be a strong female leading lady without moments of stubbornness. Rhis is just a great guy and while he has moments of arrogance you get to know the real Rhis in the beginning of the book so when he shows his "imperial arrogance" you know its just part of his military persona. All around the book was engrossing, I sat and read it all at once and will probably go buy some more books by Sinclair to read. Another series if your looking for something that's sci-fi with a little bit of a love story in it that I would recommend is Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy. There are two books in this series from this new author and I highly recommend both books by Creasy.

    Great Sci-Fi Romance

    Great action and world-building, interesting plot with a bit of a mystery. Excellent character development, plenty of romantic tension and conflict (with few and not particularly graphic but still hot love scenes). A pleasant surprise to find everything balanced so well. The ending felt a bit rushed and I would have like to have seen the ultimate (romantic) conflict resolved more clearly, but I have already added other books by this author to my TBR list.

    Quite enjoyable

    I finished this quickly, so you'll have to forgive me for not mulling over the finer details of plot, character development, and world-building. It should be enough to say that, if you like sci-fi romance where the female isn't spending the entire book in denial, or you prefer to read a story that isn't driven by 'this indescribable primal feeling neither of them have ever felt before' true-mate crap... you'll like this book. I didn't feel like I had slipped into a rabbit hole where the willing suspension of disbelief is the only way to trudge through to the end. It wasn't a deep story that made me question my own character and I wasn't swept away by a tender romance that would rival Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth's love. But I was entertained and that's what matters to me.

    I loved, loved, loved this book!!!!!

    Linnea Sinclair has proven to me, yet again, to be a master storyteller. In Finder¿s Keepers she weaved a science fiction story that kept be glued to the book, page after page, deep with emotions and descriptions, rife with gadgets and intrigue. Another tale packed with action, adventure, and romance. As a science fiction nut, this book satisfied every wish I had in this genre and then some. Thank you, Ms. Sinclair for giving another great book!!!!
