Title: Rescued by the Space Pirate
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….

Rescued by the Space Pirate is a cute, fast and fun read. The characters are entertaining, the storyline intriguing and the sex…STEAMY! To tell the truth, when I first read the blurb I didn’t expect a story that would run on the humorous side. It’s not one of those laugh out loud stories but one that doesn’t take itself to seriously.
In one day Ruby loses her job and her boyfriend. OUCH! Turns out there is a reason when she is asked to help find a missing woman…IN SPACE! She’s been dreaming of space and jumped on the chance to go. Of course, things are not all rosy when she wakes up to find herself naked and on a slaver ship. Killian is a space pirate and takes on an assignment from an anonymous employer to retrieve Ruby from the slaver ship. Easy money, right? He finds how wrong he is when he gets her on his ship.
Like I stated earlier, this is a story that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Ruby is sweet, funny, stubborn…and a flake! Who in their right mind agrees to go on an alien slaver ship. I bet she regretted that decision one the tentacle came out to play. Yuckies! Normally, that would be my do not pass go point and I would throw the book in the DNF pile but I persevered. Thankfully, Killian appears into the story shortly thereafter and things really get fun. Fun as in a nice ménage. Killian is my favorite character thus far and I’m curious to learn more about him. Once Killian finds out her story on why she’s in space, he caves (Oh no!) goes along with her plan (It’s a bad plan!) and then…
Thankfully, I have all three books in the series so it wasn’t much of a wait for me. Consider that when you decide to read the series. To be continued with the next book.
