Review: Rescuing Rory (Marks Mercenaries #1) by N.J. Walters

Betrayed after her father’s death, Rory Banks finds herself dancing on the Exos, a deep-space pleasure ship, with no way out of her nightmare. It’s a far cry from earning her keep as a mechanic on her father’s ship. Time is running out and within days she will be consigned to the pleasure rooms on board. So when a stranger breaks open her cage and offers her a way out, she grabs it and runs.

Kal Marks and his brothers are space mercenaries and traders who have spent the past ten years searching for their younger sister. Their hunt has led them to the Exos and Rory, who they hope will have information. Once Rory’s told them all she knows they plan to let her go. But Kal never counted on wanting Rory or the sexual tension and scorching heat that blazes between them. What starts out as a simple mission soon become something much more complicated.

Looking for their sister, Kal Marks and his brothers rescue Rory Banks from a deep space pleasure ship in the hopes that she has information and what starts out as a simple mission soon becomes much more complicated in this riveting sci-fi romance.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot thrills readers with a daring rescue mission and lots of red hot passion.  The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and suspense builds exciting anticipation as the sexual tension between Kal and Rory blaze out of control. The characters are strong, compelling and draw the reader deep into the story and ensure that they want to know more.

Kal’s not sure his brothers are going to let a woman stay on board their ship, but that’s a minor hiccup, he has to convince Rory to trust him and to give him a chance first.  Rory’s been betrayed once and while she took the chance and let Kal rescue her from life as a pleasure slave, she’s not sure she didn’t jump from the frying pan to the fire, especially when all four brothers are standing in front of her – they are all big and intimidating even if they are good looking.

The overall conflict of trying to find their sister is intriguing and certainly captures the reader’s interest and of course sexy mercenaries who will do whatever it takes to find their sister certainly inspire some drool worthy fantasies, so I have to say that I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
