Review

"The dialogue is fun, the action fierce, the love scenes sizzling….I'm looking forward to reading Break Out's sequel, Deadly Pursuit." -Joy Lamb, USA TODAY

"An exciting roller coaster ride… Loads of fun!" - Julia Rachel Barrett, Award-winning author of Captured

"Absolutely hysterical! Rico - you had me at 'bring me my goddamn spaceship.'" -Dawn McClure, author of Samael and Heaven Sent

From the Back Cover


The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun!

I was completely engrossed in the story from the very beginning and Nina Croft kept me on toes with surprising twists and I can't wait to read the next one.

Breakout by Nina Croft

Skylar is on first solo mission as an elite intelligence officer. Disconnected from her team, she's completely on her own, and this mission cannot fail. She's trained for every situation, except a sexy vampire rogue who wants to take advantage of her and taste her blood. She can't give in to her desires, because if he gets close enough, he'll learn too much and her mission will fail.

Combine space ships with vampires, pirates, and romance, and you get Breakout by Nina Croft. The characters are so vivid, they jump off the page and talk right at you, and the brilliant dialog made me laugh out loud several times. The chemistry between Skylar and Rico starts hot and doesn't stop heating up, until I thought the ebook would burst into flames on my computer.

A must read for science fiction romance fans.

This novella was a fast, fun read for me. It starts off strong and keeps getting better. I loved the action scenes and the dialogues with the secondary characters. This crew truly shines as far as I am concerned, each had distinctive personalities and quirks, and I couldn't help but love them - Tannis and Daisy, especially. Skylar, also, (a devious, conniving, kick-ass liar) is remarkably easy to like and empathize with. I would have preferred her to have given Rico more of a chase before bedding down with him.

As much as I wanted to connect with Rico, he always felt a little bit distant or arrogant to me. Tannis, despite her somewhat scaly skin, my favorite character, could usually manage to bring his highfalutin majesty down a peg or two, and I loved and admired her for that innate ability. Rico certainly chose wisely when he made her captain of his vessel.

This story is a wonderfully unique blend of science fiction, fantasy, adventure, and romance. There were heaping doses of humor scattered throughout. This levity helped keep the tone from becoming too dark; it was well-conceived and unequivocally added to my overall enjoyment. The sexual tension between Skylar and Rico needed a little more oomph or pizzazz, but the story fluidity and conversations made this an uncommonly good adventure tale.

I've not read much sci-fi/space opera romance, but if they are all like this, I may be hooked. The story begins with Rico running for his life and doesn't stop the fast paced race until the very end. He's one hot hero. I love that he's not stupid and stayed one step ahead of the heroine.

Skylar is one tough cookie, too. She's vulnerable yet strong, and isn't afraid to ask for what she wants. I found myself cheering her on when she would one-up Rico--no easy task.

Ms. Croft created a whirl-wind story that ate away my afternoon with a fun world and an even funner cast of characters. I loved this book and can't wait for the next installment. I have to know who Al is!

Review copy provided by the publisher

Break Out is the first novel in the Blood Hunter series which is a sci-fi romance set in the year 3048. At first, while reading I was a bit confused on what what was going on and trying to get all the characters straight in my head. The world building is great in that the concept is completely new and not something tired. Yes, there is a vampire as the hero but he is not the normal vampire. He is more nostalgic of when he was human. This is definitely a series for a reader that likes to read something that is not the norm. The world is not one that we would recognize.

I did really like how all the secondary characters interacted with each other. The majority of the secondary characters are females who are super strong, independent and don't let Rico push them around. The relationship between Rico and Sky is definitely one that doesn't happen often. Both lost their spouses years ago. Rico was a womanizer before meeting Sky. Rico is able to break down Sky's walls. I like how Croft made Rico more human than vampire.

I enjoyed reading this novel in that it isn't what I normally read. The characters were well written and not plastic. There was enough set-up for future novels in the series. I would have preferred more of a cliffhanger at the end of the book but the ending was sweet.

Gosh. I really like this publishing house but I'm not digging this novel. It's dressed up PWP with stereotypes that make me guffaw. Now - I'm not against PWP but this novel is so intent on being "more" that the main story line ends up muddled and several sub plots are just left hanging. Imagine Puss in Boots from the Shrek movies or Zorro - basically imagine Antonio Banderas - playing an ancient sex craved vampire in space (on the ship from Firefly) with a perpetual hard-on and roguish quips. Then imagine a Barbarella dressed heroine who is completely disconnected from her own sexual needs. Then add Mystique from the X-Men, as your Captain, Poison Ivy from Batman as the junior officer, Arya Stark as a young castaway, and a Troll type thing. There's your crew! What a lot of characters just so that 2 people can get it on in space. So our heroine is working for an elite government group on a mission to break out a prisoner from the galaxy's maximum security prison planet. She hires a crew of mercenaries to assist her with the mission by offering them a huge sum of money and telling them the target is her brother. She then spends the rest of the book trying to keep Rick out of her pants. Then she finally gives in after the crew basically tells them both to hurry up and get it on because they can't take it any more. Then a a few sub-plots are dangled in front of us and voila! The heroine and the vamp fall in love, accomplish the mission and run away together. The End.

More About the Author

Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of 9-5 work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.

Nina's writing mixes romance with elements of the paranormal and science fiction.
