In the Void (Tales From the Edge #2) by Sheryl Nantus
Science Fiction Romance
Book two of Tales from the Edge
Catherine Rodgers doesn’t like Mercy ships, or the courtesans who work on them—not after her husband left her for a Mercy woman. But after her yacht gets blown up to prevent her from cracking the lid off a corporate scam that’s left hundreds dead and a few people very rich, the only ship around to save her is the Bonnie Belle.
Sean Harrison has worked as one of the Belle’s courtesans for years, bringing happiness to countless women along the space lanes. When he’s asked to care for Catherine while the Belle brings her to safety, it should be just another job.
Somehow it’s anything but. Sean is captivated by Catherine’s sense of justice and responsibility. And Catherine finds a softer, more emotionally intelligent man in Sean than she expected. Drawn together in darkness under the threat of death, they find the beginning of something lasting. But with pirates after the Belle and a price on Catherine’s head, that beginning might be all they get.
I loved In the Black, ( see review here) the first book in Tales from the Edge, and was really excited when I saw In the Void. It immediately went to the top of my TBR pile. I finished it last night and was not disappointed.
I love the Bonnie Belle and her crew. Last time it was the captain, Sam and Daniel who got their unusual HEA. This time it is Sean Harrison and it is something he never expected.
Once again there is danger for the Belle. Catherine Rodgers is a whistle blower and people are out to stop her at any cost. When her ship is blown up the Belle is the only ship that can retrieve her escape pod. That put the ship and crew right in the heart of the danger. Since Sean is the medic on the Belle he is assigned to help Catherine after the rescue. Both romance, excitement, and danger take center stage from there.
I got to see more of Sam and Daniel as well as learn more about the other courtesans on the ship. There was one new addition to the group. There are still stories to be told in the series and I will be looking for the next book.
Again I love the setting for this SFR series. I think it is one of the most unique I have run across. This series is a must read for any fan of SFR. Pick it up and prepare to have a very enjoyable time reading.
