Review: No Quarter (Bounty #1) by Christine d’Abo

When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he’s convinced it’s a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn’t hard to find. He’s the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he’s far from subtle.

Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan’s even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally—especially since neither of them do personal.

Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.

Being the best bounty hunter the Guild has often sends Gar on difficult assignments. The Guild sending him out on a retrieval bounty is a simple in and out job. Once complete he can go find a hole on a backwater planet and enjoy some much needed peace, quiet, and relaxation. What he gets is anything but.

Life as a space pirate is the only thing Captain Faolan Wolf knows. He’s got an amazing ship, a phenomenal crew he’d do anything for, and an item he needs to get rid of for the highest price possible and he has the plan to get the item to the people that will pay the most for it. Faolan has reached the notorious status he has by being wily and sharp. He has a plan for everything and several contingency plans for that.

Neither Gar nor Faolan were prepared for the hell that would rain down on them once they put the plan into motion. Forced to spend time is Gar’s speedy little cruiser gives them time to explore an attraction that neither expected. The more Faolon does his sexy flirty banter thing the more Gar notices that he enjoys it. The time together also allows them to see through their walls. The real men behind the façades make them want to tear down what remains of those walls and really get to know the other. It makes for not only an enjoyable read, but a very sexy romance too.

Sci fi romances work for me for one of the reasons paranormal romances work for me, the author can make stuff up, make it believable, and still make it work. I like to just get lost in my books. Thinking too hard on how something works can just be distracting sometimes. I went into No Quarter looking for an enjoyable read. I got that and a seriously hot romance. I met enough of the crew members of the Belle Kurve that I’m looking forward to getting my hands on Christine’s next Bounty book.

Favorite quote, Faolan to Gar: “I want you to tell me that I can do whatever I want to you. And I want you to mean it.”

Zebra Paranormal Romance

Hello, my name is Christine d’Abo! Thank you so much for having me here on the blog today. I have been a big fan of all things science fiction since I was six. I started by watching reruns of the original Star Trek, moved on to watching (and re watching) Star Wars, and finally I was introduced to the world of Doctor Who.


My world exploded, expanded and I loved it all. The idea of space operas, and how they focus on the people and their developments, rather than the science was what appealed even at that young an age. The adventure, the romance, good versus evil, showed me that there could be more to live that what existed in my tiny world.


As I got older and my life experiences grew, I never lost that love of space opera. One thing that I wanted to do was to put my own mark on it, to show a different side to the worlds that had been portrayed. The Bounty series was my way of doing that. Not everyone in the universe is straight, and it’s important to show diversity out amongst the stars as well as here on Earth.


The men and women you’ll meet – both space pirates and bounty hunters alike – are full of life, love and are most definitely up to no good. I hope you enjoy reading their tales as much as I loved writing them.
