A few days ago, in a galaxy right here…
The earth faces total annihilation and one young woman signs up for a mission to rescue humanity. Only she ends up getting rescued herself, by a gorgeous space pirate. And the sex is out of this world!
Hopeless romantic, Ruby Robbins spends her days as an accounts clerk, and her nights with her head in the stars, dreaming of space adventures in the arms of an alien… or two. Then one day, she’s approached to help her country by going undercover… in space! She jumps at the chance and before she knows it, she finds herself in the cargo hold of an alien slaver ship.
Space pirate, Killian Sharpe owes a lot of money to some very bad people. So when an anonymous employer offers him a tidy sum to extract one Ruby Robbins from a slaver ship, it sounds like easy money. But once he sets eyes on Ruby, he knows he’s in over his head. Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful — she refuses to be saved.
Luckily Killian hasn’t met a woman yet who could hold out against him for long…

I’ve read Croft’s work before and really enjoyed what she was doing. When I saw this sexy number, I expected about the same amount of devoted love to come up and devour the serial. While I was entertained by the fast read, I was left a little wanting.
The beginning was great; Ruby’s intro as a woman with nothing to lose was interesting, and her reasons for doing what she does lead to a bigger picture that sounded really fascinating. Even during her capture, it was pretty dark and mildly gritty with the alien abduction, but after she was rescued, the story sort of took on a more… erotic feel? It went from scary and interesting to a fun few pages of sex with your dream guys. While I am always up for ‘the more the merrier’ parties, I would’ve enjoyed it more if the second half of the book didn’t only concentrate on her fun time before ending on a cliffhanger.
I liked the read and it certainly entertained me, but story-wise, it didn’t feel very balanced. I’m hoping the second installment will rectify that.
