From the Back Cover
Quinn Conlan had it all: a fast ship, a great crew, a gorgeous girlfriend, money, and adventure around every bend. That was before he agreed to ferry a shipload of weapons to the besieged planet Marica. Now he’s stuck in the prison colony on Marica-3, enduring weekly sessions with the camp’s medical team,” and praying for a quick death before he breaks under the torture and spills everything he knows about the Marican resistance.
When opportunity strikes, Quinn takes Elsa, a Rhenian med tech, hostage and heads into the inhospitable interior of the small moon where he formulates a plan for getting his crew out of prison, his ship out of impound, and everyone out of orbit. But when Elsa professes her love, can Quinn take the beautiful doctor at her word, or will trusting herand his heartcondemn him and his crew to an eternity on Marica-3?

Captain Quinn Conlan has nothing left to lose - betrayed by his girlfriend during a weapons smuggling mission, he's being held and tortured within an inch of his sanity by Rhenian 'medics' on their inhospitable prison colony. Among his torturers is icy Rhenian medic Dr. Elsa Brandeis. His one and only chance at escape puts the frigid doctor in his clutches when he takes her hostage. In order to survive the elements on Marcia-3, free Quinn's crew, and hijack a ship and flee the Rhenians, these two bitter enemies must form an uneasy alliance.
The alliance breeds understanding and attraction, but can they trust one another, or is their passion just a case of Stockholm Syndrome? When the Rhenians catch up with them, will Elsa rejoin her 'side' and condemn Quinn to a fate worse than death, or will she risk everything she's ever believed in to save the rogue smuggler?
I was on the edge of my seat as Quinn and Elsa fought against one another, the unforgiving elements, injury, and their growing passion - when they do give in, though, man does it sizzle! With adventure, danger, romance, and an unforgettable setting, this story has something for everyone.
And...having had a sneak peak at the sequel (thanks, Jenna!), I can tell you it's just the beginning!
Elsa, a med tech, and the second in command to the doctor in charge of torturing the patients on Marica-3 is taken hostage by a smuggler trying to escape and save his friends. At first she can only think of getting away and getting back to her job. But, when she gets to know her patient, the tables turn, and so does the shape of her heart.
Fortune's Hero is a sultry space opera adventure on a barren high-stakes world. The story completely took me by surprise and didn't let go. I sped through it so quickly, I downloaded it on my phone so I could read it everywhere I went! I just had to know what was going to happen next. And I'm not like that about every book.
Jenna Bennett has created one sexy scoundrel of a hero in Quinn that you can't help but fall in love with. Elsa is cold and rigid at first, but she morphs into such a caring and compassionate woman throughout the course of the book, realizing why she became a doctor in the first place: to heal human life, not to inflict torture. The world is fully detailed right down to the heart-barreling worms and the itchy skin lizards. I love the description and the flow of the writing. The dialog is laugh out loud funny, even when the characters don't mean for it to be!
And the love scenes...let me tell you...they are swoon-worthy!
The people were realistic. Loved Capt Quinn and grew to love Else. Thought Issac was funny even though I don't think he was suppose to be.
The dangers on a baron planet were great with the snake bite symptoms very close to what a hot flash feels like.
Speaking of HOT there were a few of those with Quinn and Elsa too.
I look forward for the adventure to continue.
Solid storyline, good characters. I sincerely hope this author is writing more in this world.
I do think 5 dollars is a little overpriced for the kindle version, but as I said, I picked it up for free.

This book has an interesting story line, but the fleshing out of the action, relationships, and the ending was poor.Published on March 24, 2013 by Rev. Wayne
Good character development with a decent story line and enough description of the environment to make it feel real. When will we get to see the follow-up story?Published on March 17, 2013 by .Steven Blanchard
