Review by Sue Lyndon
On the planet Jesel, it’s perfectly acceptable for men to spank women for discipline, while Lara’s from Earth where spanking isn’t the norm at all. This creates a major culture clash between her and Blade that makes the disciplinary scenes sizzle. When they give in to the tension that’s been building between them the results are smoking hot. I loved both Blade and Lara and was rooting for their happy ending the whole time, and I won’t spoil anything, but I will say the ending was perfect!
The world-building was fantastic too and I enjoyed the futuristic plot with the war and the rebels on the Jesel. I really hope Renee Rose writes more naughty sci-fi romance because I seriously adored this book!
The Hand of Vengeance
On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she’s captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn’t prepare her for.
When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn’t hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure–with a passion she’s never before experienced.
Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she’s giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn’t part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?
