Review

2012 SFR Galaxy Award Winner - Best Enemies to Lovers Story

2012 WISRWA Write Touch Award - best Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal

"The 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!

Science fiction, sexy novel. A light and mildly entertaining read. The writing is adequate and the story line is okay. Such heroic figures are a bit tiresome as well as unrealistic. There is a lot of blushing going on, which is another sight not often seen these days.

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.

Wish there had been more to the ending but suppose it sets up good for the next book. A lot happens in a short time with this story, so some elements seem a bit rushed, but for a first in series it's good a setting up the environment, characters and atmosphere. Worth a read, will probably get the next one too.

I recently came across this author through her "Cutthroat" series and quickly wanted to read more of her writings. When "Fortune's Hero" was published, I decided to take a chance on a sci-fi romance. I was more than pleasantly suprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The characters are very well developed. Captain Quinn Conlan is a strong man with principles who also has a soft side even after all he's been through and Dr. Elsa Brandeis turns out not to be quite the ice doctor Quinn assumed her to be. She comes through for the captain and his crew and gets them out of the prison and off the planet they're being held on. I highly recommend this book and I believe you will be more than pleasantly surprised at how much you enjoy it too!

I thought this book was really cool. I snagged it for free I think and then sat on it for awhile because the cover kind of turned me off. Looked a little too "romancy" for my tastes. While there was an element of that, it wasn't overwhelming in the least.
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.
