Synopsis from Goodreads:

Brig Monroe is a brainy security specialist with unique paranormal abilities—a geek with muscles. When it comes to the up-close-and- personal, Brig likes sex as much as the next guy, but she doesn’t do emotion, she’s amused by people who believe in true love.

Duncan Cameron is a purebred Scottish prince, and sovereign ruler of the rim planet, Ben Nevis II. The media likes to portray him as a playboy. The assassins on his trail call him the target.

When Brig is hired to fortify Cameron’s defenses, her perspective on life is put to test the instant she meets the dazzling prince. The last thing she needs is the distraction of white-hot lust when one-step in the wrong direction could mean death for both of them.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

It never ceases to amaze me how Atwood tells such a complete story in such a short page count. This exciting, quick novella takes you on quite the adventure. Atwood combines a fairy tale romance with the best of the futuristic world that we’ve come to know and love through this intriguing series. This world is brought to light in a vivid, in your face manner that leaves you breathless.

The main characters in this novel are quite intriguing. Neither of the main characters are quite what they appear. As a reader you get to know them as they get to know each other. I enjoy the fact that Atwood develops both the good and the bad aspects of their characters. I also appreciate the fact that Atwood delves a bit further into what it means to be a Huntress for the Monroe sisters. It puts a few things in context and makes these women all the more fierce and loveable.

As a whole, this was my favourite novel in the trilogy. It was a brilliant ending & had some remarkable characters. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys some Sci-Fi action.
