GoodReads Summary:

After his unusual reaction to a weapon, Commando Varean Donnelly is accused of being a shape-shifting alien and imprisoned onboard the Imojenna. Sure, he has abilities he keeps hidden from everyone—including the gorgeous doc examining him—because the government makes sure people as different as he is disappear. For good.

Imojenna doctor Kira Sasaki knows there’s something different about the handsome commando the captain’s thrown in their brig. She doesn’t think he’s Reidar, although he might have been a victim of their cruel experiments. But when Kira learns the stubborn commando’s racial make-up, she finds herself torn between defending him to Captain Rian Sherron and his crew or urging Varean to escape while he still can.

My Review:

This is not going to be just a trilogy because the author has added a great twist to the world onboard the Imojenna, Captain Rian Sherron's spaceship. A twist that will most likely have far reaching effects.

Ms. Anastasi continues her wonderful space opera with this third love story. Kira, mild-mannered doctor of the Imojenna doesn't say "boo" to anyone except in defense of her patients. And Varean, their current prisoner, a commando who is accused of being one of the enemies, the Reidar. Varean's in pretty bad shape when they drag him onboard the Imojenna. And commandos are the toughest of the tough. Kira does her doctor thing and stands up to the security guards when they go too far with her patient. She just has a feeling about this man. And from that feeling comes a spark. And from that spark comes...trouble! But it wouldn't be any fun if there weren't some trouble!

And this book is fun! The crew runs into a whole lot of trouble this time, almost more than they can handle. They lose a lot this time, too. This third book is being released today, January 2, 2017. So pick it up and stay with the story! I strongly recommend it! Too good to miss!
