Raven's Crew 1: Seducing the Captain
Raylin Fabian has loved Captain Sterling Tristam for ten long, lonely years. Unfortunately, he still sees her as the child he rescued so long ago, when her war-torn home world's barbarity caught up with her once elite family of telepaths.
When Raylin's injured, her captain makes a decision she can't accept. She finds herself left behind on a world Tristam thinks is safe. However there's no place unreachable enough in the galaxy to escape the captain's nemesis.
Caught in the crossfire between Tristam and an angry battalion commander's ire, Raylin has but one avenue of escape -- seducing her captain. Can she convince the man she loves it's all right to love her back?
Wait. What? No way! That can't be the end of it! I. Want. MORE!!!
This is exactly what went through my mind as I reached the last page of the AMAZING erotic sci-fi short story by Ashlynn Monroe. I couldn't believe how bereft I felt when I got to the cliffhanger ending. It was a completely unexpected feeling.
Raven's Crew 1: Seducing the Captain is full of action. From the very first lines your attention is caught and you can't help but to be pulled into the adventure. This story is faced paced and Monroe's timing is wonderful.
There are some great characters in this story. Captain Sterling Tristam is the type of man who inspires devotion and dedication in his crew. His "men" clearly respect him. On a relationship level though he frustrated me. He clearly longed for Raylin yet he kept her at a distance. Raylin is a strong and determined woman. I love the steps that she took to s"seduce the captain". It took a lot of courage to put herself out there like she did.
Though we didn't really get a great view of the villain in action in this installment of the series, what we did see showed us his evilness. This is one villain that I already hate with a passion. I applaud Monroe's creativity when it came to creating a character that the reader is going to love to hate.
Though Cap's pigheadedness when it came to wanting Raylin was frustrating, there was really only one thing that I disliked about this short story and that was the cover. It's a total turn off. In fact, the first I saw it I immediately wrote off the story. Yes, I know that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but come on, we all do it LOL! It bother's me knowing that people will be missing out on this great story because the cover doesn't capture their attention.
Fast paced, exciting and yet at the same time a little sweet, Raven's Crew 1: Seducing the Captain is one that you don't want to miss.
