I read little scifi, but I love Philip K. Dick, and from the beginning, I was reminded of Philip K. Dick, which in my opinion is the highest form of compliment for scifi! Mya and Jax are fantastic characters: complex, strong, determined, and they go through a lot of growth throughout the book. Mya is really awesome; she might be a princess and have been coddled all her life, but she’s resourceful, extremely tough in spite of appearances, and doesn’t fear much; Jax is rough around the edges, bitter and he definitely has his reasons. The chemistry and the attraction between the two is phenomenal, the verbal sparring is terrific and often hilarious; I loved how their relationship grew and changed; they make a terrific and dynamic pair.
THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN is very well written, at times quite lyrical, and it’s a thrilling, captivating, fun and very exciting read. Backed by a solid story, there is a lot of action, unexpected plot twists, stellar character development, and it’s very fast-paced. The world-building is very intricate, and always believable. THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN made me happy, even though Mya and Jax don’t have it easy at all, because it’s such a brilliant book. Fun, sexy, vibrant, lively, exciting, and I would recommend THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN to anyone, women and men as well: if you like romance, or if you like action, whether you like scifi or not, it’s simply a great book: just WOW!
Princess Mya was sent away from her home on Centauri for her own safety, only now alone after her aunt died, she’s stranded on the Bates Space Station and trying desperately to fend for herself and earn enough credits to get passage home. Thievery is not beneath her at this point and the best victims are those who will cause the least trouble…the ones recovering from stasis. Having managed to enter her latest victim’s room, she finds he’s not only not completely unconscious but expecting a patron-pleaser…or courtesan. When it becomes apparent he's not going to let her leave until he gets what he paid for, she has no choice but to knock him out. Before he's completely out, he makes sure she can't leave, and to make things worse, she knows him…he’s the Royal Guard on whom she’s had a crush for years and the man accused of trying to kill her father.
Captain Jax just wants to recover from stasis and be on his way again. Having pre-paid for a patron-pleaser seemed like a good idea at the time, and the one sent to his room is more than he’d hoped for except she wants to leave and he’s not ready for what she came there to offer. After snapping current cuffs on her and attaching them to himself, he passes out only later to find himself dragged aboard his ship. Then she asks him to fly her to Centauri, the last place in space he ever planned to go again after having been framed for an attempted assassination of the King he vowed to protect. When he discovers the truth of her identity, his determination to stay as far away from her and her family pulls him in closer until his heart and his honor won’t allow him to escape.
THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN by KC Klein is an action adventure through space, visits to places less than desirable for vacations or even brief stops, and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages and hoping things work out the way you hope. KC is wonderful at conjuring up characters that pull you in, make you wish them to be your friends, and desire only happiness for them. Mya and Jax are those kinds of characters and there are times when you’re not sure things are going to turnout the way you want, which keeps you turning the pages even more addictively.
As science fiction, THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN is exemplary with its unusual settings, modern yet old-fashioned living style and technology, and almost medieval punishments. As a romance, Jax is a charming yet irritating hero who frustrates so delightfully, you want to knock him in the head, and then kiss it to make it better. Mya is perfection in a match for Jax because she's just as stubborn but so in love, even as she despises him at times. I love how it has a Firefly feel to it. So there you are, if you’re a fan of Firefly, and that space western kind of atmosphere, you’ll love this book. Jax carries himself in that Captain Mal way and is just as stubborn and sexy, while Mya is thoroughly princess but with the desire and heart of a courtesan like Inara.
I highly recommend reading THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN, an Omega Galaxy novel by KC Klein because it’s an adventure, escapism, and even if you’re not a fan of science fiction, if you love romance, you will love Jax and Mya’s story…a fairy tale space story.
***purchased for my own personal reading and sharing my honest and unscripted review.
Apart from the fact that Sar could have NEVER have been half of Jax's age at the point where that was stated seeing that Mya (his father's last child)was OVER half Jax's age and byall prior estimation all of her siblings were way older than she was so Sar could actually be OLDER than Jax was) I have no major complaints.I cheered on Mya and Jax and was deeply saddened about Mya's father,I had hoped that he would have had a greater part to play.
Sar however, I had no sympathy for.
This story had love, villains, space age technology AND royalty. What's not to love!?
