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.
"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.
Riley is strong, intelligent and fiercely independent but at the same time she is also quite vulnerable and naive when it comes to interacting with other people. She is so used to being alone that she doesn't quite know what to make of the banter that goes on amongst the settlers at the station but it doesn't take her long to fall into a offered by the settlers as they welcome her into their group. Leo hasn't always lived his life on the right side of the law but he is trying to make up for it now and I liked the way he fell so hard for Riley. Neither of them ever expected to find love but when they do they fall hard and fast. Galileo's Holiday was a really sweet story and I enjoyed the futuristic take on the holiday celebrations, I'll be looking out for more by Sasha Summers in the future.
I read this novella as part of the A Galactic Holiday anthology
Quibble: No hero POV. I missed this.
