Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 103 - Outlaw's Honor by B.J> Daniels, The Stowaway Experiment by Katherine Bogle, The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

Outlaw's Honor (Cahill Ranch #2)Outlaw's Honor by B.J. Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Darby Cahill and Mariah Ayres should not be a match but turns out they are. Mariah is on the run. That is the danger in Outlaw's Honor. Darby decides to help her face that danger. None of that happens overnight. Theirs is a romance that has more than the usual number of problems. Daniels has a theme where she features other couples whose romance spans several books in a series. This time it is Flint and Maggie and there is plenty of danger and tension that needs to be resolved before they have their HEA. A nice addition to the Cahill Ranch series. There are still other Cahill brothers who need to find romance so I have additional books to look forward to.

The Stowaway Experiment: A Dominion Rising Short StoryThe Stowaway Experiment: A Dominion Rising Short Story by Katherine Bogle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a short story that introduces the Dominion Rising series. In the story we hear about the Smugglers Legion and Chaplain Eria through the eyes of Rikkard Gunnar. Gunnar is on a mission to steal information and manages to pick up a stowaway, one who does not seem to know who she is. Turns out she has some interesting talents. Story left a lot of question and not many answers but it si a good teaser for the first book in the series, The Alder Dominion.

The DispatcherThe Dispatcher by John Scalzi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a strange little story; part mystery and part science fiction. It seems that if you are murdered you come back to life but it you die of natural causes you do not. So if you are near death the Dispatcher kills you so you can come back. The mystery - a Dispatcher has gone missing and the police and another Dispatcher are trying to find him. While I enjoyed the story it really did not have much meat to it. I did not think the premise did not make a lot of sense.
