SFR Galaxy Award Winner 2012 - Best Enemies to Lovers Story

WISRWA Write Touch Award 2012 - best Fantasy, Futuristic & ParanormalThe story kept me on the edge of my seat right to the end. I'll be looking forward to more Soldier of Fortune novels from this talented author. Charlee Allden, Smart Girls Love SciFi


If you like romances where the hero and heroine face life-or-death circumstances to get to their HEA then you will be greatly rewarded. Scifi romance lovers this is definitely not one to be missed! Rhianna Walker, RhiReads


=================================================

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 her—and his heart—condemn him and his crew to an eternity on Marica-3?

Gritty, raw, and featuring a larger-than-life tortured alpha hero (my favorite kind), Fortune's Hero is one hell of a thrill ride.

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!

Quinn, an expert smuggler and sexy Romeo-in-space wakes up bleeding to death in a prison on Marica-3. He's in a torture device aimed to make him talk, giving away news of the resistance. Relishing death, Quinn knows the ice witch in charge will bring him back from oblivion only to enact another form of torture when he's built his strength back up.

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!

My first Sci-fi wasn't sure I wanted to read one but love the author so I went for it. I loved it!!!!
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.

Right from the opening lines of the book I was drawn into the story and Quinn Conlan's life and death struggle. Fortune's Hero is a sci-fi-romance twist on the reluctant hostage romance trope and one that is, for the most part, done exceedingly well. The author provides many trials, dire circumstances, and a slow, believable journey to bringing these two opposing characters together. The story kept me on the edge of my seat right to the end. Luckily, this is the first book in a series of related books. I'll be looking forward to more Soldier of Fortune novels from this talented author.

My review is based on an ARC provided by the publisher for an honest review.

The futuristic romance concept is very intriguing. The author builds on it with a killer opening sentence and amazing voice. The opening page sucked me in. I love that the story starts and doesn't get bogged down in backstory. I'm intrigued and I want to learn more about the characters.

Throughout the novel, there are great opening and closing lines on the chapters and the scenes. They really propelled me forward as a reader. Great pacing.

The alternating POV between Quinn and Elsa allowed me to get to know both characters. Quinn provided several laugh-out-loud moment. Is it okay to crush on a character in a book? Because I did. The pages singed my fingers with the sparks flying between him and Elsa. So much tension and conflict.

Very hot sex scene!

Love the ending--perfect setup for a second book while still managing to wrap up to this story too.

Overall a very very fun, engaging read. I got through it in a day.

I think this is one of her best books to date.
