This imaginative novella combines the allure of advanced technology and space exploration with a familiar quest to bring a criminal to justice. The combination of a thirst for revenge, hidden personas and an intense sensual connection played out against a non-terrestrial background gives a nice twist to these familiar themes. There are intriguing aspects to the carnal connection made between the two non-humans that give a very different flavor to this erotic tale and it would be great to see more adventures that feature these two characters. An entertaining quick read.
“Lunar Exposure” by Shona Husk is a science fiction novella that centers around an attempt to capture the environmental terrorist Noga Tindel before he destroys the orbital resort known as Decadent Moon. Two different Phrials are attempting to earn the considerable bounty as well as the personal satisfaction of ending the mass murderer’s career but neither knows about the other. Their strong mutual attraction complicates the determination that each has to achieve the goal but their pheromone-enhanced mutual lust may be too strong to ignore despite their distrust of one another. Perhaps they will have to establish a new goal.
Bounty hunter Callen wants to capture Noga—a terrorist—both for the money and for revenge. But catching a criminal on the sensual resort of Decadent Moon without giving in to all the destination’s sexual pleasures is harder than it seems.
Haliday is the darling of the media, a socialite known as much for her casual relationships as she is for her charitable donations. No one knows she hunts down criminals.
Lust and ambition clash, and Callen and Haliday will have to find a way to work together, despite the distraction of their passionate bond. To succeed they must trust each other, something neither Callen nor Haliday is willing to do.
