Book Description

Bargaining over salvaged goods isn’t Jace’s strong suit, but who in his right mind drops a huge sum on a woman—even if she has a body built for sin and eyes he could get lost in? He must be getting soft.

Once Kraft realizes Jace only expects her to cook for his motley crew, she lets down her guard. Big mistake. Giving in to the urge to ride him hard and put him away wet—several times—risks revealing her secret. One that Jace must never know…or showing her mercy will be the last thing on his mind.

Format: Paperback
This book was a DNF for me. I like both science fiction and romance, which is what attracted me about this book. However, to steal a term from another romance genre, this is a "wallpaper" sci-fi romance. The world-building is extremely limited--think "space ship", "the Void", and "a planet" and you've got it most of it--and sometimes forgotten: for example, after a shopping trip on a planet to restock the ship for a long voyage, the heroine waxes on about how nice it is to have fresh vegetables again as if this was going to be a permanent situation (because yanno fruits and vegetables never go bad after a few days...let's talk scurvy for example).

The characters did not appeal to me either. The hero is a beta hero, at best, and even though I also don't like over-the-top alpha heroes, Jace needed to grow a pair and lead his crew, not let them squabble amongst themselves. Kraft, the feisty heroine, was the biggest Mary Sue I've read outside of fanfiction in quite a while. She's the bestest fighter, the bestest cook, the bestest gambler, the most smartest, the most beautiful, the most honorable ("honor" wins the award for most over-used word in the book BTW), etc., etc. *sigh*

The one member of Jace's crew who really dislikes Kraft is a big burly bad-ass fighter who is sterotypically MMEEEAANNN!!! until a while into the book we discover...(put down your drinks before you read this next part)...(no seriously)...he likes to quilt.

I stopped reading not long after that. 1.5 stars. The only reason this isn't a one-star is that, since this book was published by Samhain and had an editor, I didn't particularly notice grammatical and spelling errors.

Lives and futures are ruled by the Inner World Government (IWOG), unless you've got the skills and the guts to make your own way on The Fringe.

Captain Jace Lawless runs a salvage ship, the Mutiny. Staying just out of reach of the by-the-book IWOG officials, he manages to remain one step ahead of starvation, death, or worse - being grounded. He and all of his crew hate the IWOG--they've all lost friends and family to the grinding wheel of the IWOG's corporate greed and heartlessness. In Jace's case, his wife and three children were killed when the Government decided to subdue his planet by unleashing a virus that targeted only humans and left the livestock and land intact.

Things are going just fine - well, maybe not just fine, but they're surviving - until the crew gets a job to salvage a derelict vessel. They run up against rival Captain Kraft, who also has a claim to the salvage job. The two captains eventually decide to split the profits amicably and go their separate ways until fate throws them together again later.

For Kraft, she has two things in life that nobody can take from her--her honor and her heart. She also has a dark secret. Meanwhile, fate has placed her in the hands of Captain Lawless. Time will tell if she can stay alive with the two things most precious to her intact.

Thief is a fun space-western futuristic romance. Jace is a fantastic hero. Kind, yet hard, handsome, honorable, he's got it all. Kraft, for her part, is a strong female character. She's tough, she can more than hold her own, and despite being in a precarious position, she maintains her pride and her strength while still retaining her femininity.
