Synopsis: Communications specialist Ravyn Verdier is on a mission to test the habitability of Jarved Nine when her team is mysteriously killed. Sent to rescue her, commander Damon Brody becomes stranded on the planet with her. Trapped on a world harboring an unimaginable evil, Ravyn and Damon must depend on one another--and they discover love is the only force strong enough to battle their unseen enemy. (from the back of the book)
Review: This is a well-done sci-fi romance. I enjoyed the world-building (and the subtle references to things from our time that carried over), the romance was a little hokey, but not enough to ruin the story, and I enjoyed the romance between the secondary characters. The story is fact-paced and well-written, although I could have done without the mystical stuff. In the end, if you are looking for good sci-fi romance (which is hard to find) this is a good choice. I will be reading more of her work.
Prude Note: There are several sex scenes, all of which can be avoided if you wish. One, however, is important to understand the romance between the secondary characters, but not so important that skipping will ruin the story.
