[[Reprint]] Erotic science fiction romance

Her voice is famous throughout the galaxy; her face is completely unknown.

Fleeing her monstrous husband back on puritanical Earth and the police assassins he's hired, singer Mella Archer becomes stranded on the frontier planet of Nexus. Desperate to survive, she picks the wrong target--Dain, the head of planetary security.

Dain is amused by the attempted theft, and when Mella is sentenced to serve time indentured as a bedroom slave, he buys her contract. As he introduces the repressed Earther to the pleasures of sex with a dominating warrior, he slowly comes to realize that the little thief has stolen his heart.

When the monster arrives on Nexus and has lunch with Dain, Mella is panic-stricken. Her owner must be part of the conspiracy to kill her, and it will only be a matter of time before the monster discovers that she's still alive. She attempts to escape. She fails. Embittered by her lies and mistrust, Dain returns her to Indenture Hall to be sold again.

Now the monster has found her. And she has nowhere left to run...

Editorial Reviews

Dark Diva Reviews - Jae J
Cherise Sinclair has done it again. She's also opened my eyes to a very excellent sci-fi/futuristic story when I wondered if any actually existed.

If you haven't read a Cherise Sinclair book, you should certainly pick one up. Apparently, no matter the genre, you just can't go wrong.
Fallen Angel Reviews - Bella B
This is a sub-genre that I don�t usually prefer, but for this auto-buy author, I�d give it a shot. The Starlite Rite surpassed each and every hope I ever had about this story. � The suspense was enough to keep me turning page after page, going to sleep long after I should have and rushing to finish the story as soon as I had a break the following morning. In short, I loved this story, and if it�s the first in a series, I�ll be sure to revisit this world just as soon as the next book is released.

Have you ever read a story that you loved so much that you don't want to loan it to a friend? This is definately one of those stories for me. The character development in Starlight Rite is perfect. You fall in love with Dain and Mella immediately. If you're like me, you get tired of the heroine being too sassy in very vulnerable situations. Cherise lets Mella be vulnerable without being weak. Dain is so dominant yet sweet and caring. As usual, Cherise doesn't hold back in the D/s scenes, which I REALLY appreciate. Cherise Sinclair has become one of my favorite authors.

Was unsure at first. But I'm glad I got it. Great story, great character development. Another solid story by Cherise Sinclair. I have loved everything she has written so I download this one, very sci-fi but it worked, only a couple of rocky points for me, but a good full length read.

I've now read everything by her and I left this to the last thinking I wouldn't like it as much but it was great. She is a wonderful writer. I look forward to new books by her.

I really loved this book, and I will definitely suggest it to friends. The twists were really unexpected and the personalities were very believable. I will definitely re-read this one.

The story had a good story line and great building of the main charactors' relationship. Not into the whole orgy 4 times a year to help the gene pool. Some of the sequence was too fast to squish into the shorter than normal story. I believe it was only around 197 pages so should not have cost over the $5 charged good story or not.

I love the author, but this book disappointed me. I wanted the girl to stop waffling and to be consistent. She was a pushover and she didnr stand up for herself when her "dom" let other men penetrate her without her permission. What couldve been an erotic scene felt like a rape scene instead. I kept wishing the guy would get the clue that his "earther" shouldnt be treated that way. And he never apologizes or shows remorse for hurting her emotuonally or physically. If there was a sequel to this book it would be about her finally getting away from her abusive dom and finding someone who wouldnt take advantage of her.

I have loved all of Cherise's books so far. When I read about this one I was curious how it would go and if I would like it or not. I had never read any books anything like this. But after reading it I was not disappointed at all! This is one of my favorite books!

This is the first book I've read by Cherise Sinlair, but It wont be the last. I fell in love with the characters from the start. If you are looking for a good love story with just enough kick I would recommend you try this one.
