I enjoyed the first book in this series, The Wreck of the Nebula Dream. The author, Veronica Scott, did a great job mixing action, adventure, science fiction and romance and I wanted to see if she was able to replicate that magical formula. Star Cruise was slightly different than the first novel, dealing with real life subjects like PTSD and alcoholism, but still had that great mix of genres I mentioned above. The cruise ship is crewed by a group of ex military vets. Continue reading “This Chick Read: Star Cruise: Outbreak – The Sectors SF Romance series by Veronica Scott”
Wreck of the Nebula Dream is the first in a series of science fiction romance novels. This book was recommended to me by my sister and she never steers me wrong! This was science fiction in that there were aliens and space ships, but it was not a technical NASA geo-physics type science fiction novel it was more Guardians of the Galaxy adventure. Very tongue in cheek, fun, adventurous and yes, romantic!
Captain Nick Jameson is on leave and has to take transport on the Nebula Dream, a new cruise ship that has all the luxuries that a military man really doesn’t give a damn about. However, to get from point A to point B, it’s not a shabby way to travel, and Nick sets in for 10 days in the lap of luxury. Mara Lyrae is on business, and even though she takes notice of Nick, she doesn’t have time for him. Until, just like with the Titanic, the ship strikes an asteroid field and the Love Boat turns into the Poseidon Adventure. Nick, with his skills in the military takes charge of a small group and tries to find a way off the ship. He does not leave Mara behind, of course!
This was a short novel, but really a lot of fun! Nick and Mara have great chemistry, and Mara is also no fainting lady in waiting. She has been trained in firearms and holds her own in dangerous situations. If you like sci-fi and a hint of romance (think pg-13, this is no bodice ripper!) you’ll also enjoy this novel. Check it out! ❤❤❤❤
