We met Taara and her cousin Daanel in Stark Pleasure; the Space Magnate's Mistress (LodeStar, #1). When things get too dangerous for them to stay in business on Earth II Taara asks Logan Starke for help. Logan being the manipulative SOB that got him into trouble in Stark Pleasure agrees to help for a price. He wants Taara to seduce his brother. He wants to bring Creed out of his self-imposed isolation and thinks Taara may be able to get through to him. He doesn’t stop to consider their feelings on the matter. Nor does he take into consideration that Creed’s mine is under attack from pirates and he may be sending Taara into a dangerous situation not only to her person but to her heart. I was taken in from page one and really had a hard time putting it down when life interrupted. I liked Taara and Daanel in the first book and was glad to get to know them better in this one. I fell for Creed right along with Taara and was pleased that Daanel didn’t let Taara get away with her responsibility for her part in the events that took place. This book is filled with action, adventure, mystery and a whole lot of steamy loving. I am really looking forward to the next installment.
Orphaned on Earth II as a toddler, Creed suffered a traumatic childhood before his brothers found him. The boys scrabbled out an existence on the tough world, and older brother Logan was the first to make a fortune raising them out of poverty. But wealth can't erase the past, and Creed grew into a man determined to never let another being control his body or emotions again. Creed lives a lonely life working ore out of his valuable mines on Frontiera until Logan sends him a courtesan, a woman skilled in seduction. Or so Logan told him.
Taara is really a woman desperate to save her cousin and escape the crime ridden Earth II where extortionists threaten their business and their lives. She approaches magnate Logan (her friend Kiri's lover) to help them flee. Calculating businessman Logan agrees for a price-seduce Creed without telling anyone about the deal. She has to let Creed simply believe she is a courtesan. Taara feels compelled because she can't let her cousin die so she agrees to his terms. Logan hides the reasons for his blackmail from everyone, Creed hides behind his past distancing himself from Taara, and Taara hides her growing feelings for Creed as it all blows up in their faces when a hidden spy aids pirates raiding the mining compound. Will they survive the attack only to have relationships die?
Cathryn Cade writes fast-paced, action-packed sci-fi adventures wrapped around erotic love stories with great skill and leaves readers impatiently waiting for Joran Stark's story in early 2014.
It is best to read each part of this series in order because they are in chronological order.
For those of you who don't care for the "experimental" stuff, however, this story has more of a traditional approach and outcome (although graphically described), so you Gentle Readers out there may approach this one without too much trepidation if you want a sensual read with a happy ending.
