Synopsis from Goodreads:


Lexine Monroe has spent her life hiding her true nature from those around her. The preternatural strength and speed that sent her to the top of her field as a criminal enforcer have doomed her to a life alone.

Now, she has to team up with bounty hunter Blane Sebastian, racing against the clock to rescue a kidnapped child due to be sold at auction on the Glory Dome space station.

Six years earlier, Sebastian was Lexine’s teenage crush. Fortunately for her, she is long past the point where a hard body and a sexy smile will put butterflies in her belly.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Each time I pick up a piece of Atwood’s work I come to love her writing more and more. We’ve come to know her for her approachable style and wild imagination, but this is oh, so much more. She mingles suspense with sexual tension in a manner seldom seen. Her vivid descriptions put you firmly in the realm inhabited by her captivating characters. I was also floored at the way that she works real world issues into this unforgettable futuristic tale. 

Atwood creates the type of characters that you instinctively connect with and want to see succeed without having to know them very well. I fell in love with Lexy the moment she wanted to prove herself, even though she had nothing to prove. I also enjoyed the fact that the cast wasn’t entirely human. Both futuristic beings and mythical ones join their human counterparts to create an immensely enjoyable whole.

As a whole, this novella was fun, exciting, and out of this world, both literally and figuratively. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone & can’t wait to read the 3rd novella in the trilogy.

  2. I like multiple story lines because I am easily bored. Time travel is a fantastic element to add to a romance novel. Thanks for the opportunity to win the entire series. ^_^

  4. I have been enjoying Time Travel for awhile now. I don't know how I started reading them, but before I knew it I had lots of books that had Time Travel in them. So it would be great to add another author to my already large TBR list. This series sound so intriguing, and I can't wait to get a chance to read it.

  5. Time travel can be fun when you give enough information about both times to keep it interesting. And even more fun when it's a romance, too. Nothing like the intrigue of taking an out-of-time character and putting them into a strange, yet sexy situation.

  6. What's your take on time travel in romance novels? I have actually only read one series that is a Time Travel romance and I felt the author did an amazing job with keeping both worlds interesting and fun. I love how the author takes a person from one time and places them into another and watching how love blossoms.
