Antidote (love and war) book 1 by R.A. Steffan.
Back cover …….
Her survival depends on a dangerous alien fugitive.
Skye Chantrell has just escaped a war zone.
She’s carrying the stolen antidote to a deadly bioweapon.
When her damaged shuttle crashes on a remote lunar outpost, she’s captured by the leader of a rogue group of barbaric aliens. Now her people’s fate—not to mention her own—rests in the hands of the Seven Systems’ most feared and hated criminal.
A man with the face of a brutal thug, and the eyes of an angel * * *
Hunter Tarthasian has every reason to hate the Regime.
He and his comrades have gone rogue, vowing to use every means at their disposal to bring down the evil Premiere. Now, they’re wanted and on the run, holed up in an abandoned outpost while they plan their next move. The last thing Hunter needs is a female human civvy with a terrible secret crash-landing on his doorstep. Especially when she starts to awaken feelings in him that have no place in his life as a rebel leader.
Feelings that could very easily get all of them killed.
My review ……
Hunter AKA “The Rook” is the leader of a bunch of rebels, they are wanted men and women, and they are hiding from the regime whilst they plan their next move.
Hunter hates the Premiere (after killing someone he loved very dearly) and is planning on taking it out. What he doesn’t count on is a shuttle crashing on his outpost. But it could be the answer to his prayers.
Skye is on the run, she’s stolen an antidote to a new weapon the regime has created. (her father was ordered by the alien race the “Vithii”to create a weapon to kill all humans, but he’s also created an antidote) She’s escaped, but that was the easy part! She’s crashed on what looks like an abandoned outpost, passing out from the crash, she hopes this is isn’t the end ….
Both Skye and Hunter have reasons not to trust no another, she doesn’t know if he will hand her and the antidote over, and Hunter just doesn’t trust her, even though his mating instincts are kicking in.
But they do agree on one thing, they need to release the antidote and save the humans.
The story is well written, the characters likeable, a few moments where you laugh, and the sex doesn’t go on for pages and pages and pages 🤪
It’s a fun read and there are more in the series. I’ll probably go back and read the rest at some point (but I have plenty on my kindle to keep me going for a while) 😉
