Deadly Pursuit Review

Deadly Pursuit by Nina Croft
Blood Hunter Book 2
Republished October 28, 2014 by St Martin's Press
4.5 Galactic Howling Moons

"A mystery, a comedy, a sci-fi fantasy and a passionate love story all rolled into one."

Synopsis -

Her passion for Jon is a force to be reckoned with—and the way he makes her feel keeps her coming back for more. But their desire could lead them both down a dark path—one in which there’s no turning back. How much will each of them risk to be together…for all time? (Goodreads)

Review -

The perfect blend of science fiction, paranormal and romance, and enjoyable by any gender. The greatest books are the ones that make readers stop and think, what if? Nina Croft proves with each book in this series that she truly understands that concept. Creating a world after the earth has been destroyed, and showing that mankind still lives on, and survival of the fittest still applies.

High Priestess Alexia the entirety of her life living under the rule of others. While being doted upon hand and foot, she was also sequestered to a glamorous life of servitude. Told what to wear, how to talk, how to behave, more importantly, how to think. When she finally sees the opportunity to break free, even if only for a short while, she jumps on it, or rather in. Taken in by the Captain of El Cazador Alexia assumes a new role in life, as well as a new gender becoming Al the cabin boy. But good things must come to an end, as Al learns with bitter clarity as the Church learns of her whereabouts and demand her return.

 An alpha werewolf without a pack to protect can be a very dangerous thing. Jon cannot forgive himself for the events that tore his pack apart. Becoming a lone wolf and an assassin seemed the only solution for him. But the moment he meets the "cabin boy" his world is turned on its axis as every instinct he has comes back online, no matter how much he tries to fight the pull. The wolf and the man may want the same thing, but the man is determined to resist.

One determined to live a full life in a short time, the other still running from the life he once lead. Together they can either be each others downfall, or salvation.

Full of non-stop action from beginning to end, plus a bonus scene at the end, the Blood Hunter series is a true must read. Both male and female lovers of sci-fi and paranormal alike will enjoy this read. Characters to love, characters to hate and characters to make you laugh. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart as there is violence, bloodshed and steamy, hot sex that will have you reaching for your lover and making them very happy. This is a re-publish, so for those who have already read it, here's your chance for an actual paperback, so that you may have both Jon and Rico right at your fingertips.

Break Out Review


Break Out by Nina Croft (ARC Review)
RePublished September 30, 2014 by St Martin's Press
Dark Desires/Blood Hunter Book 1
4.5 Intergalactic Fangs!

"For readers who love their Sci-Fi mixed with a major dose of Paranormal."

Synopsis -

Break Out by Nina Croft

The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun! (Goodreads)

Review -

Once again Nina Croft has delivered a great story and leaves readers anticipating more. From page one, the action begins and doesn't let up until the very end. Readers will board the El Cazador de Sangre and fall in love with every member of the crew. Each different from the other in way more than just looks alone. Some genetically mutating from birth, others whom started life as human and became something more dangerous and deadly, others well, readers will just have to stay tuned to find out. As this is a re-published series, the entire series is out there available to be read, but I do believe this is its' first time in paperback. So fans whom have already read the series, here is your chance to feel the pages between your fingers of the sexy predetor that any woman would love to take home and keep in their bed, Ricardo Sanchez.

The Collective, a group of humans whom have taken the Meridian treatment, and the ruling class of the Universe. Skylar has been a member of the Corps, a militant sect of that group, for the past two hundred years. Centuries in which she has been mentally connected to the whole of the group, following orders unquestioningly, barely able to even recognize what emotions are her own. So when her Colonel offers her a mission in which she will be on her own, both physically and mentally, she all but jumps at the chance. After-all, what is asked of her should be fairly easy; hire a crew to help her break out an inmate in spaces form of Alcatraz, then betray that crew once all is said and done. Only problem is, whenever something seems to good to be true it usually is, and that is definitely the case here. As she comes closer to her end game, she also becomes closer to the crew, especially one very hot, stubborn vampire, Rico. Now she must ask herself, is she willing to betray them and leave them to their fate?

As a fifteen-hundred year old vampire there isn't much in life that Ricardo Sanchez has not done, besides being a cowboy. What he has never encountered was a woman much like Skylar Rosario; spunky, tenacious, confident, strong, intelligent and most importantly, not easily intimidated. But he knows she is hiding something, something that could put the lives of the entire crew at risk. While he hasn't made many attachments with most of the members, he considers Tanis a true friend, and that is not a word he takes lightly. But the temptation of getting closer to Skylar, a chance to accomplish a task that no one else ever has, and  enough money for Tanis to get her Meridian treatment is just too great for him to turn down. Will he beat Skylar at her own game, or will he end up losing everything in the end?

Full of action, suspense and a story that will keep readers guessing to the end. This is a must read for Sci-Fi fans of any gender, but only the non-squeamish type. Paranormal lovers not quite into science fiction may still enjoy it, though just not as much. Only thing I wish were that there had been more details on what happened to planet Earth, as there was in Book 3. All in all, a very good read.
