Review: Collision Course by Zoe Archer

Collision Course is a novel by Zoe Archer and a Science Fiction Romance from Carina Press.

Book Blurb:

In a galaxy torn apart by war...

Mara Skiren is a scavenger, a black-market dealer. Blackmailed into helping Commander Kell Frayne infiltrate a treacherous corner of the galaxy, Mara learns that her biggest danger is from her sexy, by-the-book partner. She's a loner with more than a few battle scars on her heart, but something about Commander Frayne stirs up her long-buried need for an intimate connection.

An ace pilot for the elite Black Wraith Squadron, Kell's mission is to rescue a lost pilot and ship. Unable to deny his attraction to the beautiful, rebellious Mara, he decides bedding her would cool his ardor. But one taste is not nearly enough, and he finds himself sharing more of his real self with her than he has with anyone.

With deadly criminals on their heels and an increasingly dangerous assignment to complete, he's starting to wonder...if they survived, could he let her go? And will Mara want to stay?

My thoughts:

Mara Skiren has more in her past than anyone could ever guess - but she has come a long way from that past.  She has made a reputation for herself as a top notch scavenger.  Now that reputation has brought her to the attention of the 8th Wing and they require her help.  Whether she wants to provide that help or not.

Kell Frayne is a Commander with the 8th Wing and he is set for a rescue mission.  The only problem is that he needs to get through the Smoke Quadrant - and no one from the 8th Wing has been through the Smoke Quadrant.  But Mara knows it like the back of her hand.

Thrown together the two butt heads over just who is in charge of the mission - but underneath it all, they are both fighting the instant attraction they feel for one another.

I enjoyed Collision Course.  Plenty of action, a lot of sexual tension and a happy ending. :)

I give Collision Course 4 out of 5 stars.
