Meet the Author

Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia, which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of nine-to-five work. She's since then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary), and has settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.

    The second book in Blood Hunter series is an intriguing and exciting read that gets the reader’s adrenalin pumping.
    Werewolf and assassin, Jon is used to working alone and now he’s stuck on the El Cazador while he figures out what he is supposed to know that puts him on everyone’s most wanted dead list.  High Priestess of the Church of Everlasting Life and runaway, Alexia is finally having fun, she never meant to runaway and is planning on returning one day.  And she has decided that Jon would be a very exciting companion only Jon gave up being a protector a long time ago. 
    This fast paced and stimulating plot is brought to life with well written and vivid scenes that put the reader right in the middle of the action and keeps them on the edge of their seat.  The fascinating journey has lots of surprises and twists as the characters try to outrun and outmaneuver their enemies.  
    All the characters are strong and compelling with lots of charisma that captures the reader’s imagination with snarky and fun dialogue that adds depth to this delightful adventure.  The attraction between Alexia and Jon is hot and steamy, despite the fact that Jon tries his best to stay a lone wolf and the sex scenes leave the reader sizzling.  
    The author conveys all the emotions and personalities with intensity that it makes it easy for the reader to connect to the characters and feel as if they are a part of the story.  
    This is an exciting journey for a ragtag crew of misfits that has futuristic, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and romance elements that come together to make this a must read series.  The author does a brilliant job of combining all the elements and blending several conflicts into wonderfully entertaining stories that the reader doesn’t want to end.

    Excellent characters and plotting

    This is the second book in Croft's Collective series, offering a welcome return to the El Cazador, a star wars esque ship of underdogs who manage to thwart the poweful reach of not one but two intergalactic cults. The first book introduces readers to the Collective; the second book picks up immediately afterward it with the crew on the run with a high profile prisoner they broke out of a supermax jail. The real focus though is on a corrupt Church leader intent on capturing someone else on board -- Al, the timid cabin boy.

    The fast-paced plot grabs hold quickly in this quirky mash-up of space opera and paranormal thriller. Yep, vampires and werewolves teamin up with aliens. If that intrigues you, definitely give the series a try! You should start with Break Out if you want the back story.

    The crew of the El Cazador is hiding from the Collective, the prisoner they broke out of maximum security prison, Jonathon Decker is not only a wanted hired assassin but he’s also a lone alpha werewolf. As much as Rico wouldn’t mind dumping the “dog” on some random planet he’s not going to just let Jon loose, not when he has information that could explain why the Collective is insistent on killing the entire crew of the El Cazador. To make things worse (or more interesting) the Church has decided to get in on the action. They’re also in pursuit of the El Cazador. According to the High Priest of the Church the crew has something that belongs to them, that belonging being Al the Cabin boy who happens to be Alex the High Priestess of the Church. 


    While the El Cazador has become the most wanted crew on the planet things are heating up on the ship. Rico and Skylar can’t keep their hands off one another and Al has decided she wants Jon to be the one to give her a sexual experience of a lifetime before she’s forced to go back to the Church. Jon on the other hand just wants to get off this crazy ship and get on with his life. The last thing he wants is to feel responsible for another being. The longer he stays on the ship the more drawn to Alex he becomes. He’s torn between his feelings when it comes to the impulsive and naïve High Priestess. She’s constantly getting wrapped up in dangerous situations and Jon feels compelled to not only protect her but to give into her sexual desires. With all their lives on the line giving into temptation doesn’t sound so bad.


    Oh my, I thought Rico was one suave sexy beast but Jon takes sexy to a whole other level. He’s tortured by his past and for that reason he hesitates when it comes to Alex. He’s comes off as an angry mean guy but deep down he’s a gentleman and he tries to do the right thing when it comes to Alex. Alex is naïve and at first looks at Jon as just some sexy guy for her to have a first and final fling with but as she gets to know the lone wolf she realizes he’s going to be more than just a fling and she’s not sure she can deal with the heartbreak that will come with being with him. 


    The way those two fell head over heels in love with one another was sweet, poignant and sexy. I loved the way Croft built up their relationship and brought the two together. There was an emotional bond that helped both stand against the danger they faced and tear down the walls from their past that had them hiding their emotions. The story was full of lots of twists and reveals concerning the Collective and the Church. The twist about the truth concerning Meridian was intriguing. I can’t wait to get to know Callum Meridian, founding member of the Collective a bit more and read about him and Tannis interacting. Those two I imagine will bring the level of steamy up a few notches.
