Starlight Cowboy

Beyond Fairytales series, #7

Stephanie Beck delivers a fabulous, fairytale with this sci-fi romantic adventure. Annalina and Shields are fantastic together and it's a good thing they are both so good at their jobs otherwise the heat between them would be definitely messing with their spaceship's electronics. Shields is definitely not the most charming or suave leading man but there is something so endearing about the fact that his straightforwardness reveals his true feelings. I enjoyed the fact that Annalina is such a strong heroine, she's intelligent and hardworking, her determination is admirable. The descriptions of the space ship was fascinating, it wasn't too detailed as to bogg me down with scientific schematics but it was specific enough to add some major authenticity. The supporting characters added just the right amount of entertainment and information. I'd love to see some additional stories take place in the world the author has created. If you are a fan of fairytales or science fiction romance this is a definite must read!

Annalina is truly happy to be part of a mission to Jupiter, she had been hoping to captain her own space ship however she finds herself as second mate to Playboy, Shields Albright. It's a long journey and with only the two of them occupying the space ship it's no surprise they give in to their attraction. But can their physical relationship move to something more permanent if they can survive their dangerous mission?

Book Blurb for Starlight Cowboy

From the storybook of the stars.

A groundbreaking mission to the moons of Jupiter should have been Annalina's big ticket for advancement, but instead of captaining her own ship, she's second fiddle to Shields Albright.

Playboy, adventurer, immature.

Shields has been called it all, but really, he just wants to fly and hasn’t spent a lot of time on his social skills. Mutual attraction grows as the walls of the space ship close in, and they come to an arrangement that satisfies them both, while allowing them professional distance. The distance doesn’t last, not as they grow to understand themselves…and each other as someone who just fits.

Not all is as it should be among the stars.

Their ship is attacked, and the moons of Jupiter are not exactly untouched when they finally arrive. The little world they’ve built high above terra firma is about to smack down in the middle of a dangerous, maybe even deadly, reality. If Shields didn't attract trouble like fireflies on a bug zapper, the two might have an actual shot at true love.
