New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author of Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world.

Dagger is a Trivator warrior. He is known for his dark and dangerous edge, making him the perfect warrior for impossible missions. He fears nothing, until he meets a young, delicate human female who wakens his heart. Her gentle touch, soft voice, and her shy sense of humor touch him in a way he never thought could happen. The thought of anything harming something so beautiful and fragile fills him with terror.

Jordan Sampson is slowly adjusting to her new life on a strange planet far away from war-torn Earth. She had been seventeen when she was brought to the Trivator’s home world of Rathon along with her older sister, Jesse, and younger sister, Taylor, a couple years earlier. Fear, confusion, and uncertainty of what the future holds threaten to drown her as she tries to fit in. There is only one hope that keeps her going. It is the handsome alien male that stirs something deep inside her and makes her feel whole.

When Dagger is captured during a mission and sold to the illegal Fight Rings, it is only the memory of Jordan that keeps him going. Time blurs as he slowly sinks deeper and deeper into a world of violence and pain until he becomes more animal than Trivator.

Jordan knows Dagger is out there, somewhere. She can feel him in her heart. The heart she gave to him the first time he held her protectively in his arms.

When she discovers where he is being held, she refuses to let anything stop her from rescuing him. What Jordan doesn’t realize is that she has been Dagger’s hope during his captivity. The one thing that holds the thin thread to his sanity.

The fight to save Dagger takes Jordan on a journey that she hopes they both survive. The star system is a dangerous place for a young human female and a damaged Trivator warrior. Can Jordan reach Dagger in time, and if she does, can she heal his shattered soul?

As always susan engages my interest in the first few pages and keeps it til the last. I am waiting for the next in the series. The added plus of bringing the story line tease of Jarmin and Jane is keeping me on my toes.

Everyone has a husky voice, once again. When an author is fond of a phrase, and uses it continually, it may be overlooked while reading; however, in an audio book that phrase becomes like nails down a chalkboard. I picked up the "spoke in a husky voice" -phrase in book Two, Razor's Traitorous Heart, and unfortunately in remains in book three. Aside from being "too husky," the book was working for me, until the ship with the French men and the robots showed up. I'm still don't understand what that was. Now, I will admit I haven't read through all of S.E's books; so I'm not sure if it's a spin off or not. It just left me confused,but their ship was cool. I did like all the flashbacks. I thought they were executed perfectly. Jordan was a very decisive young woman, and I liked that she took action when she felt she needed to. Dagger didn't stand out much to me other than the fight ring; his personality was typical Trivator Warrior. Overall the book was good and it gets three stars from me....Sara

Great story. Couldn't put it down. What a great twist, bring Jarmin, Luc, and John Paul into it. Now I want to know what's going on back on Kassi. What happened to Jane? Need to know. Can't wait on the next book or two.

Love S E Smith.. most of her books just pull at you and put you in the world she created. And you just belly laugh. Not so much in this book, but very emotional and pulls at your heart. Bounces around from the characters memories which makes you have to back track a little.

I have read all of her books that are available but there are still two books BN does not list (book #1 of the Heaven Sent series--Lily's Cowboy & Zion Warriors book #1 Gracie's Touch) Hopefully they will be available soon!

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin Stars Dagger's Hope by SE Smith is the long awaited third book in the Alliance series. This is Dagger and Jordan's quest to find a life together.  It is about the life that was stolen from them by those that would imprison and use others for their own gain.  This is about Dagger and the two long years of captivity he had endured, fighting each day just to stay alive and his Amate, Jordan that had relentlessly spent those years searching for him.  He had promised to return to her and she would not give up until he was back in her arms where he belonged.  Dagger is a strong, feared Trivator warrior who was ambushed while on a mission by a notorious and ruthless mercenary.  This mercenary uses him to add to his wealth by placing Dagger in cage fights that lead to death for those that do not win.  He believes that Dagger is his property, he belongs to him and the only escape for Dagger is death in the cage.  The only thing that keeps him going is the memory of Jordan and the promise he made to return to her. Jordan is a middle sister that we first met when Hunter, Saber and Dagger found the sister’s hiding place on Earth.  Even wounded and sick, she tried to protect her younger sister, Taylor. She has a backbone made of steel and is highly intelligent.  She refuses to believe that he is dead and uses her knowledge of computers to find Dagger.  Jordan is determined to bring Dagger home where he belongs and nothing or no one will stop her from finding her Amate. This book has intense moments and is filled with twists that reacquaint us with "old" characters from previous series that are reintroduced to us in this "new" series.  I found myself intrigued, wondering where the author was going and once again couldn't stop reading until I had finished.  Ms. Smith gifts us with a beautiful, heart-stopping out of this world story that not only entertains the reader but also opens up endless possibilities.  I look forward to the next book in the Alliance series and where the author’s imagination will lead us. Hero – 4 stars Heroine –   4 stars Steam: 4 stars  Plot: 4 stars  Cliffhanger: No

I absolutely love this series and was not disappointed with Dagger's Hope. This story had more heart wrenching moments simply due to what Dagger had to endure for 2 years. It was full of plenty of action and romance and some steamy scenes as well. The only thing I wish was that there was more interaction with Hunter, Saber and Trig. I still gave it 5 stars cause it was just that good.
