Lurin's Surrender

Bounty Hunter and Captain, Mara Seni doesn't question the jobs she's hired to do she just does them as quickly and expediently as possible.  That is until she is hired to track and capture Lurin Vez, alleged rapist and murderer, and return him to his accuser.  There's something wrong about the idea that Lurin would rape anyone, his looks alone guarantee him whatever female company he wants.  When the whole bounty ends up going bad, will Mara's future be forfeit or will these two find a love to span the galaxies?

Introducing the new and improved Lurin's Surrender by Marie Harte.  With extensive expansion and re-writing, this book has the middle section and the basic plot in common with its previous incarnation and not much else.  Having read both versions I have to say that I like them both.  Usually when an author reworks a previously released story there is a difference in the tone, the voice in which the author writes, due to ever evolving talent. But there is no obvious difference here.  I can pick out the parts that are the same because I've read the book before, but they flow seamlessly into the new additions, which is actually harder to do than it seems.  The new beginning and end are awesome, I enjoyed both the original and the rewrite and it’s worth buying both of them.

When the hunter becomes the hunted, all bets are off because love is on the line.

For Captain Mara Seni, being a bounty hunter is what she does, not who she is. But her latest bounty makes her question her job. He’s tall, dark and handsome. But a rapist? A murderer? And why is the victim in question more intent on keeping him than putting him in jail?

There’s something off about Lurin Vez, and it’s more than his good looks. Though she shouldn’t care, Mara’s not going to stop until she finds out the truth. But when the truth turns into a love brighter than the sun, it’s all she can do to withstand the heat.
