Rebels and Lovers by Linnea Sinclair
Science Fiction Romance
I think award winning author Linnea Sinclair is the queen of Science Fiction Romance and she has written another winner in Rebels and Lovers. The fourth book set in the Dock Five Universe Rebels and Lovers continues to add complexity to the world started in Gabriel’s Ghost. As in all of Linnea’s books the character building is right on target and the plot is filled with action and unexpected twists. The romance does not drive the story but is skillfully woven into the action adding to the appeal.
Rebels and Lovers is the story of another Guthrie. The Guthrie’s are trying to consolidate their power after the deflection of Philip Guthrie to the new Alliance. The Guthrie patriarch decides to use the marriage of his youngest son to accomplish this. The youngest is Devin whose talent is in business not catch your breath action. Everything changes when his nephew Trip vanishes. Devin follows a trail that leads him to Dock Five. Makaiden Griggs, a former Guthrie family pilot, is short of funds and her ship is unable to leave Dock Five. She recognizes Trip, sees he is in trouble and moves to help. Devin, Trip and Makaiden find themselves together and on the run for their lives.
Bantam will release Rebels and Lovers by Linnea Sinclair on March 23rd, 2010. I belong to Linnea’s Yahoo group. She offered a pre-release pdf copy to any member who had a book blog. I enjoyed reading Rebels and Lovers on the computer but want a hard copy and will be purchasing the book to re-read as soon as it is released.
While Rebels and Lovers is part of a series it can stand alone. Be warned, after you read Rebels and Lovers you will want to find the other three.
