Borealis: A Space Anthology Book One
Science Fiction Romance
I love Science Fiction Romance so I ordered Borealis from Desert Breeze Publishing as soon as I saw it in the October email. Borealis is a space station on the edge of conquered space and as resources are sent other places the station is slowly falling apart. The Trans Planetary Protectorate is in charge but they are being pressed by the Rebellion.
“The Borealis is a hive of villainy where anything can be bought or sold – anything or anyone – if the price is right. Boasting the slogan ‘The last stop for Debauchery before falling off the edge of the universe’, the station and its inhabitants do their best to live up to the motto.”
This is the setting for three stories in Book One.
In Inamorata Crossing by P.I. Barrington while transporting a prisoner to Borealis Khai Zafara finds her past is not what she believes.
Kiss Me Kate by J Morgan features a pampered prince who comes to Borealis because he hopes the Professor can help him become the man his people need. The Professor is not who he thinks.
In Forgive Us Our Debts by Gail Delaney Theron is a gun for hire that comes to Borealis to rescue Sarina Laroux. This is one rescue where it is a good thing he always prepares for the worst because the worst just keeps happening.
I liked all three of the stories but Kiss Me Kate was my favorite because it turns the romantic situation upside down. The other thing I loved about all three stories was how the romance was handled. All stories built the romance without pages of sex. I said in a previous post that I usually just skimmed the sex scenes. It was great to read good science fiction romance that developed the romance between the characters without pages and pages of sex.
This is the first book in the series. Borealis Book Two is due out this month.
Desert Breeze published Borealis: A Space Anthology Book One by Gail Delaney, J Morgan and P.I. Barrington in 2010.
Borealis is only available as an ebook.
