I knew the moment Sara told me about this book that I need to read it You may have noticed that I have a little obsession with science fiction so it s not surprising that I jumped up and down like a

cover infatuation again.But back to the important part of the book the actual novel inside I grabbe I knew the moment Sara told me about this book that I need to read it You may have noticed that I

cover It resembles Taran and Wallace so good and I really like the colors and the layout Me and my cover infatuation again.But back to the important part of the book the actual novel inside I grabbed this book yesterday evening and am writing the review now only 18 hours later and I slept a few of those hours I practically inhaled this book from the first to the last word Midnight s Ghost starts with a big bang Let me quote the first few lines for you Whoever said karma was a bitch wasn t kidding I wondered what cosmic entity I had pissed off this time in order to earn this particular boot in the stomach I mean that literally, by the way.That was enough to get me hooked Taran, our heroine is a real kick ass woman She is a Star Runner which means she transports persons or cargo through the universe with her OWN spaceship How cool is that One of my never forgotten childhood dreams As you can see in the first few lines the world she lives in has no problem with beating the shit out of a girl but she knows how to defend herself She is strong, not only with her hands but also with her mind She is witty, says what she thinks and is never too shy to giver her 2 cents She is her own boss with her own ship I can t say that often enough and business, because she has this little problem with taking orders wink This girl is exactly the way I like them Okay I admit throughout the story I wanted to slap her from time to time for being way to stubborn but I know I can be that way too from time to time so I won t throw any stones.Taran meets her ex in all the mess of this little, let us call it discussion with hand and feet and I m not sure what s worse for her the fight or Wallace presence He broke her heart in the past, even if I think that this is something she just sees that way because of her stubbornness but women are women after all He still is what she wants, she would never admit it but he is what her heart and her body craves I have to say I agree with her body very much.So let me talk about Wallace a bit He is an Ilium an alien race as near to a human as you can get He s bossy, funny, a total smartass and sometimes a bit full of himself or better said that is what the reader thinks at the start He needs Taran s help He has to reach the planet Delphine Five in 3 days which is near impossible for most ordinary star runners But he knows that Taran can make it and he has no other person to turn to It is a really important mission and he needs to be sure that it will be done no matter what So even if he knows that she just hates his guts he has to ask and take all the insults and curses she throws at him.The relationship between these two was scorching from the start Taran tries to keep her distance but she sees soon that her resistance is futile LOL..sorry I couldn t resist There was this one scene on the ship where nothing really happened besides Wallace telling Taran what he wants to do huge wink and OMG I really had to fan myself I love the build up between them and I liked that we only discovered bit by bit of their past through the story They captured my attention and didn t let go.The plot In Midnight s Ghost was wonderfully woven into the romance and I liked that.it took the centre stage at the end I enjoyed the action and who doesn t like spaceship fights The political intrigue behind the action was fascinating and well thought through I can t wait to read what happens in the next book.All in all Midnight s Ghost is an action packed erotic romance and in my opinion even not as geeky readers as me will appreciate the science fiction part Highly recommended A perfect mix of romantic tension, heart pounding action and passion that leaves you breathless I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next one I ve long been a fan of science fiction, but this is my first sci fi romance read I didn t know what to expect, but Sara Brookes captivated me from the first page with kick ass action to introduce her main characters I stayed up until 2 a.m reading until my eyes wouldn t stay open any longer As soon as I woke up in the morning, I grabbed my coffee and started reading again until I finished.The sexual tension and banter between Taran and Wallace make for a great read, not to mention the steam I ve long been a fan of science fiction, but this is my first sci fi romance read I didn t know what to

s Ghost was far from predictable and left me wanting to read the next book in the series, Midnight s Shadow If you think feisty space cowgirls deserve their day in the sun or wherever else their bucket of bolts may take them , this one s for you Taran not remotely biased because of the heroine s name is a female Han Solo Capt Malcolm Reynolds and eclipses all of them when it comes to spunk Looking forward to seeing where the next book takes Taran, her bad boy lover and her hunky robotic second in command. I won this book in a contest that Sara Brookes was running in celebration of the new release in this series, I thought the ending was a bit abrupt, but looking forward to readingabout these characters.
