Overview

The United Terran Colonies are under attack. Desperate for pilots to combat the enemy raiders the Fleet puts out an all pilots call, hoping to fill their empty fighter squadrons. A call ignored by ex-con Radha Kaden, who figures she doesn’t owe anyone anything. Since a pilot’s life expectancy is slightly less than that of your average lemming, she steers well clear.

Then a bar brawl violates the terms of her release and she has a choice. Go back to Acheron, the harshest prison facility in the combined systems, or pilot a fighter…

Thanks to high casualty rates Wing Commander Davin McAvoy constantly needs new pilots. Dead men can’t fly Valkyries nor can they protect the base or her crew. When he’s told he’s getting that rarest of creatures—an experienced pilot—he’s ready to throw a party. Until he finds out not only is his new pilot an ex-con but she’s a woman too. Both unforgiveable sins in Davin’s book.

Until he meets her and sparks that have nothing to do with the war fly…

Meet the Author

Mina Carter can be found exploring in the middle of the English countryside with her real-life hero and their young daughter … the true boss of the family. Constantly seeking new challenges, Mina never tires of learning new skills—counting aromatherapy, corsetry and welding amongst her abilities. She juggles motherhood, working full time and writing, tossing another ball in the air with her work as a graphic artist and web designer. For her, writing time is the wee hours of the morning or any spare minute that can be begged, bought or conned.Her first stories were penned at age eleven, when she used a stationery set meant for Christmas “thank you” letters to write stories instead. More recently, she wrote for her own amusement to save on outrageous monthly book bills, and to quell the demands of friends for more and longer stories. Now you’ll find her reading and writing original worlds where the unusual is everyday and romance is a must. When he's not writing, Kurt Drake is a software developer in small town South Carolina. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, music, photography, and spending time outdoors. He is married to his high school sweetheart and they have been together for ten years.

    Where to start?

    I guess I should start by saying I liked this book. There are people I will recommend it to. It's not a bad book. It isn't poorly written. It's not something I threw at the wall. It's just... MEH.

    The book starts with a great hook. The opening is fast-paced with just enough edge that I wanted to read more. But there are some issues after that.

    1) The White Knight turns out to be a cheating low-life. Seriously, he spent 75% of the book juggling his long-time girlfriend against the new hottie. (Spoiler Alert: The new hottie wins and the other girl never knows her boyfriend is cheating until the dump scene)

    2) Every single romance trope is here. Every single one. Wounded female whose tough on the outside but just needs a mans touch to soften up? Check! Straight-laced guy who really just wants hot sex? Check! Communication skills of a three-year-old because otherwise there would be no plot? Check! Page 200 Fight over a dumb misunderstanding? Check, check checkkity check check! It's all there.

    3) "Two hot pilots meet, argue, and have sex." This describes about 50% of the romance/SFR genre and the author brings nothing new to the table. Even the world-building was sub-par.

    On the other hand... it's a fun beach read, fans of romance will enjoy the book, and people who haven't read SFR widely will find this sparkly and new. It has some cute moments and is worth the couple of bucks it costs.
