BOOK REVIEW

Release Date-August 24th 2006 Genre-Erotic Sci-Fi (M/M/F) Romance

Paperback Edition-484 pages

Victoria Stark is an Imperial Navigations Pilot known among the sentient battleships as the Victorious Star—for sacrificing her captains to save her ships. Strong-willed and resourceful, she has never lost a ship she’s flown—and never serviced a captain she’s had.

Captain Ravnos of the Mercenary dreadnaught Hellsbreath rules his crew with an iron will. First Officer Seht is a skeldhi prince whose speciality is erotic discipline. They’re on a mission, and in need of a nav-pilot.

Kidnapped into service on the Hellsbreath, Victoria is caught between two very different men locked in their own private and erotic power struggle. And then there’s the mission…

The Moribund Company has captured the Imperial Dreadnaught Arcane, and intends to auction the sentient ship to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, Moribund himself is attending the auction and Ravnos is forced to remain onboard the Hellsbreath for Moribund has a personal vendetta against the handsome captain. It is up to Victoria and First Officer Seht to go deep undercover at the Mordred Space Station to rescue the Arcane.

To complete the mission and return to her duties as an Imperial Officer, Victoria must become Prince Seht’s rehkyt—a pet, literally and figuratively. Not allowed on the furniture and kept at the end of a leash, Victoria discovers that there are worse things than servicing your captain. Or are there?

MY REVIEW

Victorious Star by Morgan Hawke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, this book is just pure magic I have lost count of the number of times I have re-read this baby and its one of the few I actually own a physical copy of and have in paperback on my bookshelf. That non-con/dub-con scene where she is made to submit over the captain’s desk is my fave ever and as this was one of the first books I ever experienced this type of scenario with you could even say Victorious Star popped that particular cherry for me. Now, this is not going to be the book for everyone especially if you prefer your romantic interludes all wrapped up in a pretty pink bow and all politically correct and all. This is the opposite it’s raw and rough with some dubious content involved and I bloody devoured it and will continue to do so in the future. So despite this being heavy on the kink front, there is also an interesting storyline running through which makes this even better. Genre-wise this is a sci-fi BDSM erotic menage romance and as I am a sucker for anything slightly alien this made this even more intriguing to me. So basically Victoria Stark imperial Nav Pilot is liberated from her current assignment by Mercenary Captain Ravnos of the Hellsbreath and his second in command first officer Seht a royal Skeldhi prince to nav-pilot their ship. There’s a lot of hot and heavy antics that are heavy on the Dom/Sub side of things. This is M/M/F and the males are together first before being joined by Victoria. My fave character here was most definitely Seht and I just adored everything about him including his character dynamic with both Victoria and Ravnos. The side story as well was fabulous an undercover assignment with Seht where she will have to be genetically altered and act as his pet. This was hands down my fave bit of this story, I do so love a bit of pet-play (although this was more tongue in cheek rather than series on Victoria and Seht’s part so don’t be put off) This is such an imaginative story that I highly recommend especially if you like the unusual and bar the desk scene which definitely pushes and borders on the non-con the rest of this is all consensual and there is nothing majorly over the top here, this is actually a lot of fun at times. definitely not for the easily offended though and I will put this out there: lots and lots of anal here folks just a heads up.

So yep this baby definitely gets my stamp of approval, loved it.
