Michelle Marquis and Lindsey Bayer – Hunters

An action-packed, sizzling adventure and a seriously sexy romance.

This book was a huge surprise for me. I am not usually a sci-fi fan but I wanted to give this one a try. The outline sounded promising with a little action/adventure tied in with a steamy romance. What I got was a ton of action and a super sexy romance that kept me turning pages.

Kirillian Harmony Knox was one of the most successful bounty hunters in the galaxy—until a brain-eater named Prime became her only failure and escaped, landing her in jail. Now free, she’ll stop at nothing to catch him and stop his murderous rampage.

Unfortunately for Harmony, fellow hunter Bart Tanner has the only available transport. Arrogant and ruthless, Tanner is known for killing most of his bounties. Harmony can’t stand him—yet she can’t deny the deep sexual desire sparking between them.

Once enslaved as a cage fighter by a cruel Kirillian, Tanner harbors a deep hatred for the alien race—though he’s drawn to Harmony’s luscious sensuality, and they soon indulge in erotic encounters.

When Prime puts out a hit on Harmony, things intensify, and Tanner realizes their lust has turned into something deeper—but if he and Harmony aren’t careful, more than just their lives will be at stake…

I love it when there is tension between the two main characters. Michelle and Lindsey have created a lot more than tension, these people can’t stand each other yet they can’t fight their attraction. Tanner is a big, strapping bounty hunter who blows all his hard-earned cash on booze and whores. He is as tough as they come and the last thing he wants in his life is a woman even tougher than he is.

Harmony is an ass-kicking bounty hunter with a ton of attitude. She likes Tanner just a slight bit less than a blast from an ion gun. They are thrown together and the sparks fly instantly; in and out of bed. I enjoyed the fact that they didn’t deny their physical attraction to each other and that made the love scenes hot and passionate. Actually, I was impressed by how heart-felt the raw sexual encounters between Tanner and Harmony were written. It definitely added to the book.

I enjoyed the characterization and the colourful descriptions of alien creatures and alien worlds. Michelle and Lindsey should have spent more time, however, on framing the plot than building the futuristic world. The plot was not as deep or heavily involved but simple and a pleasure to read overall.

As I mentioned, the love scenes were hot but not extremely graphic or full of strong language. I would give it a 9 out of 10 on my Sexy Scale. (10 being very graphic in sexy content – 1 being so tame there isn’t even a real kiss… ok, well maybe a chaste one)

Overall, I would totally read something written by this team again and I would recommend this great read to any sci-fi fan. I give this book an 8 out of 10 overall.
