Overview

[BookStrand Futuristic Sci-Fi Romance, with fantasy elements] Alliance I-Marshal Weber hauls Yadira to her home planet and infiltrates the human-trafficking ring controlling her.

Even in the future, when you are the top cop the problems that plague us in the 21st century are still the same. I-Marshall Weber is trying to bring down a human trafficking ring and finds himself caught in a gun battle right out of the old west that he survives with a bonus. Weber teleports out of the situation and has the misfortune of bringing back the most stunning woman, ah suspect he has ever seen. Yadira Maxwell is not an innocent by-stander, but she is also not part of the mess created by her now deceased husband and Weber figures that out quicker than anyone else on the force does but keeping her alive is proving to be a challenge since someone really wants her dead. Weber may come in to save her but he is the force she fights against how is she going to trust him to help her? She has been internally tagged so the man that wants her dead is going to be able to find her unless Weber comes up with a solution. Running at first appeared to be an option and even after some skirmishes with trouble, they keep on moving toward clearing her name and getting some time alone. Who do you trust, who do you turn to, where do you run when every step you take is being watched by someone? Yadira wants to believe that what is happening to her is real and not a dream but is Weber an angel sent to save her or the devil sending her to her eternal punishment. She has to decide, and really quick because this is all going down one way or the other since someone has the means to cause her demise and rule books are thrown out as anything to stay alive becomes an option. The moneyman has hired the big guns to eliminate her, and has the power to make her non-existent, but what is the motive behind all this that even Weber cannot quite figure out. Being chased isn't fun, on the run is worse but Weber provides Yadira with the tenderness that reminds her of what a heat-filled kiss tastes like and how tender the strong arms of protection feel. This is not my first book by Michele Hart so knowing I was going to like it was not the question - how much was. I did enjoy it because Ms. Hart knows how to write a futuristic adventure without making the reader struggle to figure out the complexities and not feel lost. She lays out the plot, explores the nuances of the characters, and rolls out the story without ever leaving the reader wondering what just happened, and how is that person.

I've not read Luminous Nights yet but plan to. One of the best things about Vigilant is I jumped right into the story and never once felt like I was missing information because I hadn't yet read the first book. A sequel strong enough to stand alone is good writing with a capital G. I recommend this exciting tale - it's fast paced, intelligent, sexy and the ending took me completely by surprise. Bravo Michele Hart, I can't wait for the next I-Marshal adventure.

Reviewed by Rose Anderson, the author of Hermes Online, Siren Publishing Michele Hart creates a fantasy world in Vigilant you can almost taste. A quick moving tale where things are not as they seem. I'm a reader who often figures out the ending in the first few chapters. Her book had me completely surprised at the end. Well paced, well written. I definitely recommend this read and look forward to Ms. Hart's next. Reviewed by J.D. Faver, the author of Painted Lady .Bad Girls need love too. I loved this book! I hated this book! What I loved: The way Ms. Hart dropped me right into the action and mainlined me into the character's brain from the first page. Without lengthy backstory and information dumps to show the reader the future world, she managed to paint a vivid picture of a brutal society where women are traded like baseball cards and lives hold minimal value. Weber, dedicated I-Marshal becomes captor and subsequent protector of a beautiful young woman who has been cruelly used as the slave-trader's pawn. Yadira has never known a loving family. That she has survived to become a young adult is a miracle. Now she finds herself the property of yet another man, after that man has killed her lover and protector. Although drawn to each other, neither can afford to trust the other as Weber uses Yadira for bait to draw out Brinolis, the evil criminal master mind behind the slave-trade ring. Weber is driven to bring him down as well as those who purchase the young kidnapped victims. What I hated: Oh, yeah. I hated the way I had trouble putting it down and the way the characters haunted me when I did manage to turn away. A thoroughly good read but not to be started at bedtime because you will look all baggy-eyed the next day.
