Beneath a Trojan Moon (The Phoenix Adventures #4) by Anna Hackett
Science Fiction Romance
Fortune teller Relda Dela-Cruz is a woman with a secret. One she’ll do anything to conceal. She hides in plain sight on the market world of Souk, content with running her profitable fortune-telling business and never letting anyone too close. But when assailants attack her in pursuit of a powerful artifact, Relda collides with the city’s handsome, new marshal. A man who leaves no stone unturned and no secret covered.
War has left former Galactic Special Forces Captain Hunt Calder tired and empty, but one look at sexy Relda—with her wild curls and lush curves—brings him back to life. When she’s threatened over the mysterious Trojan Moon, Hunt will let nothing stop him from protecting her. Even Relda herself.
As they face alien attackers and killer droids, Relda can’t resist her burning attraction to Hunt. But she knows he’s the most dangerous threat of all, because he doesn’t just want her body, he wants her trust and her secret, too. A secret with the power to destroy Hunt and Relda, the city, even the planet itself.
I am hooked on The Phoenix Adventures. Beneath a Trojan Moon is a side story novella set in the Phoenix universe. What it does not have are any of the Phoenix men in the story. Two of the Phoenix women do appear briefly but this is really Relda Depa-Cruz and Hunt Calder story and romance and it is a good one.
Relda and Hunt are both very appealing characters. The action in the story is a result of Relda’s secret. Hunt just wants to protect Relda at any cost. All of this sets up an action filled well written romance.
Beneath a Trojan Moon is a great addition to the series. It does stand alone but like any good series it is more fun if you read every book.
Amazon Digital Services published Beneath a Trojan Moon by Ann Hackett in 2014.
I received a free copy of Beneath a Trojan Moon from the author in return for an honest review.
