Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of Robin Hood-like thieves are desperate and on the run. Pursued by a vicious military general who wants them dead or alive, Tess has to decide if she can trust Shade Ganavan, a tall, dark and arrogant stranger with ambiguous motivations.
What Tess and Shade don't know about each other might get them killed... unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other - while ignoring their off-the-charts chemistry.
Although I am not a big sci-fi reader, something about Nightchaser appealed to me, and I am glad I requested it on NetGalley. I found the story great fun, and I liked both Tess and Shade as characters. They had great chemistry, too, which really sizzled on the page. The story premise is interesting, and the book certainly left me keen to find out what will happen next. My only main reservation was the lack of fleshing out of other characters. Tess and Shade came across fine, but everyone else seemed a bit two-dimensional. We never really got to know the supporting cast to any extent. However, that may be something that happens over the course of the series. I also didn't think the sex scene at the end was strictly necessary. All up, though, an enjoyable read for fans of sci-fi romance and adventures tales.
