Book Description

Ice miner Riley works alone in the depths of space, and that's the way she likes it. She's proud of her independence, and when her ship gets destroyed by raiders on the icy surface of Galileo, she's not sure she wants to rely on rakish trader Leo and the kindness of a band of settlers to survive.

Despite her attempts to keep her distance, it's not long before Riley warms to the family atmosphere of the settlers' station. As Galileo's Holiday approaches and she develops feelings for the handsome, charming Leo, she questions whether she really wants to remain alone.

But Leo is hiding cargo the raiders want, and when they come back for it, everyone on the small station is in danger. Riley will risk anything to protect her new friends—because if the raiders succeed, the choice between Leo and a life alone won't be Riley's to make.

Sasha Summers has once again written a great story. This one is a total departure from her Hollywood "Red Carpet Series" and "Loves of Olympus" series. Her first foray into the Romantic Sci-Fi realm is fun; a very sweet (and hot) love story. Sasha Summers has used her true gift for storytelling to take readers to another world where Christmas has a whole new meaning.

"Galileo's Holiday" takes us to a future world where Riley, the heroine, lives a solitary life as an ice-tugger. She is stranded on a planet when her ship is destroyed by raiders, and rescued from certain death by tall, handsome Leo. They take refuge with a group of people who are in the midst of preparing for "Holiday".

Not used to being around so many people, Riley is inundated with new sights, sounds, the delights of real food, and this man she is attracted to. As she soaks in these new experiences, Leo is fascinated by her, and is as drawn to her as she is to him.
As they explore each other and their new relationship, they are forced to battle deadly creatures and the return of a band of nasty raiders.

I'm a big fan of this author, and she has once again delighted me with this new story. Sasha Summers has proven that no matter the genre, she has a true gift for storytelling.

I enjoyed this little galactic read - simple, basic and to the point but it was fun. Of course, being an original "treker" (Star Trek), one can see why I love almost anything about the galaxy. FOR SOME REALLY FINE READING of this type, try "The Morcai Battalion", "The Morcai Battalion: Invictus", and "The Morcai Battalion: The Recruit" all by Susan Kyle. I am crazy about this series and have read and reread numerous times. Think I shall do so again shortly. It's a peculiar thing - my library has all three in Kindle eBook form and I own the hard back of the original book in the series "The Morcai Battalion" but Amazon offers ONLY the hard back currently (Kindle edition pricing not available?). "The Morcai Battalion: Invictus" is offered only in Kindle form and "The Morcai Battalion: The Recruit" is offered ONLY in paperback form - no Kindle! Beats me what is going on with Amazon and the publishing of this wonderful series. I just wish Ms. Kyle would add to it but I'm afraid not at this late date. Oh for some more of this type of reading out there with the stars! lol.

Addendum: Ms. Kyle also writes under Diana Palmer - "boo koodles" of westerns; alas no more galactic - afraid they did not sell as well as her westerns under Diana Palmer. But oh how I wish she would! Many including myself have requested but to no avail.

Interesting setting on Galileo and a likeable and very competent heroine--a mechanic. I liked the contrast between 'tugger' and 'station' culture and the food scenes were funny.
Quibble: No hero POV. I missed this.

More About the Author

Sasha is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, and travel. It's no surprise that her books visit times past, set in places rich with legends and myth. Her first play, 'Greek Gods and Goddesses' (original title, right?), was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
