Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 152 - Starship Grifters by Robert Kroese, Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt, Empaths by S. H. Jucha

Starship GriftersStarship Grifters by Robert Kroese
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this as a audio book however it is one that I might not have liked as well if I was reading it instead of hearing it. The best character in the book was Sasha, the robot. Her lines were priceless as she tried to keep Rex on track. I knew that the scam was probably for real what I did not expect was who and what both Rex and Sasha's part really was. A very fun listen and probably a fun read too.

Duke of Desire (Maiden Lane, #12)Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Lords of Chaos are still around and have kidnapped Lady Iris Jordan. Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his lifes work stop the Lords and comes to Iris's rescue. Both are really interesting characters. Raphael has so many secrets in his past; most not good. Iris is the light in his world. It was interesting to watch them interact. Iris is very strong and can stand up to Raphael. Raphael thinks that the things done to him in the past mark him as tainted. It is a very long journey in a very short time to their HEA. A nice ending to the series.

Empaths (Pyrean Series, #1)Empaths by S. H. Jucha
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Empath revolves around Aurelia Garmenti, a young empath who has been held prisoner her entire life and Captain Jessie Cinders who rescues her when she escapes after causing the death of the person abusing her. As the story progresses the world of Aurelia and Jessie becomes more and more real. This is the first book in the Pyrean Series and all of the action and character development focuses on both back story and world building. It is a rather long book and I felt it could have been edited down some without losing the focus on the important parts of the story. Even so I really liked both the characters, the action and the world that was being built. I will be watching to see how the series develops. Some things are solved but there are many threads left hanging.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
