Dark Runner, LodeStar Series, Book 3.5 by Cathryn Cade
Tal Darkrunner is not just a tattooed bad boy, he’s the leader of a dangerous gang. Serpentian warrior Scala Raj knows this—so why can’t she stay away from him? She’s supposed to be spying on him to gain back her freedom, not falling for him.

Assassin’s Hunger, Sheerspace Book 3 by Jessa Slade
Stripped of her identity by a cybernetic mercenary corporation, Shaxi was a mindless killer until the corporation was destroyed and set her free. Now lost and alone, she desperately needs to master her unlinked programming before she succumbs to the rogue madness. But the electromagnetic storm that might save her also blows in the Asphodel, a sheership with more mysteries and menaces than Shaxi has ever faced…including the enigmatic Eril Morav, a heartless assassin on a quest to save the sheerways, even at the cost of his own soul. Eril thinks he’ll use Shaxi to do his dirty work, but she might be the one being in the universe who can light his black-hole heart.

Headspace by Calinda B
Vienna has a gift of intuition and the ability to make people think they actually had the experience she pulls from their mind. She operates a high tech, virtual fantasy encounter service, accessing the desires of men and acting them out in her customized room called Headspace. Vienna's very successful in her virtual sex life but in her real life, she's never climaxed.
When Vienna confides her secret in Jonas, he wants to help, promising success by her birthday. Only thing is, he's in a committed relationship with a long-time girlfriend. When his shrewish girlfriend becomes jealous over his friendship with Vienna, will he cut off the friendship and break her heart?

End of the Line, Jit’Suku Chronicles by Bianca D’Arc
Enemy Captain Val downs a female fighter pilot out near the Galactic Rim. Her name is Lisbet and she’s about to rock his world.
Their attraction is mutual and explosive. She can’t resist him, but she hates being a prisoner. Lisbet doesn’t know a lot about his culture and it’s clear he doesn’t understand humans. It’ll be fun educating him about just how fierce... and loving, a human woman can be.

Liking It Ruff by Mina Carter
Some girls don’t play nice…
Licensed Bounty Hunter and mercenary, Naz, has always been a wild one. After all, chasing criminals across the known galaxy is bound to knock a few cogs loose. No crew, no partner, she works hard and plays hard. Tannick Ruff, Alpha weredog and all round SOB, can see the potential in Naz as a hunter. She might just be tough enough, and crazy enough, to join his crew. The fact that he’s been itching to get inside her for months has absolutely nothing to do with it…

My Review:
Five out of this world tales of romance and adventure by some of the hottest authors of the genre.
Dark Runner (LodeStar Series #3.5) by Cathryn Cade
This terrific tale takes place in the world of Cathryn Cade’s LodeStar series.  It can be read standalone but you would get more out of it if you’ve read the previous books as the characters in this story have played a part in Stark Pleasure; the Space Magnate's Mistress (LodeStar, #1) but takes place after Captive of Pleasure: The Space Pirates Woman (LodeStar #3).  These are part of a sexy fun Space Opera. 
In Dark Runner we get to know sexy bad boy Tal Darkrunner a bit better.  Tal is the head ganger in New Seattle, New Earth II.  You cross him at your peril.  Scala Raj has made some mistakes and is recruited to work and spy on Tal in exchange for a full pardon.  She is smart, sexy and bad to the bone but she isn’t ready for the chemistry between her and Tal.  Tal can count the number of people he trusts on 3 fingers but the new sexy Serpentian is starting to slither into what passes for his heart. 
Caution this story has a sexy as sin tatted bad boy, a sensual Serpentian, and a couple of sexually adventurous crew members.  Breakout the ice water and strap yourself in for one sizzling hot ride.
Assassin’s Hunger, Sheerspace Book 3 by Jessa Slade
Kick ass Shaxi meets a guy just as messed up and just strong enough to complete her. 
Headspace by Calinda B
Sexy futuristic  friends to lovers tale with terrific characters and supporting cast.
End of the Line, Jit’Suku Chronicles by Bianca D’Arc
I really liked this story.  It was way too short.  I wanted more time with these characters.
Liking It Ruff by Mina Carter
Really quick and sexy were tale.
