I love to read, been an avid reader since the moment I first read a whole book all by myself (One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish if you’re keeping score). I love erotic romance, obviously, and thrillers and true adventure. But I’ll have to admit, I’ve never read much sci-fi romance before.
And then I found Jolie Mason. Her 47th Lancers series grabbed me my the lapels and threw me down ever since I read Riding Redemption. Mason’s stories are packed with fast-paced action, softened around the edges by heart-felt romance.
Her new release, Redemption Burning, is no different. The opening of the story is heart-breaking. And I’ve said it before, Mason insists on giving us the technical details of battle without dumbing them down. She trusts us to keep up and it’s a better story for it.
Here’s my Amazon review of Redemption Burning.
Action, Adventure, and Heart-Felt Romance
Confession—I don’t have a lot of experience reading sci-fi romance. Then I came across Jolie Mason. Having thoroughly enjoyed Riding Redemption, I was thrilled to read Redemption Burning, the next installment in Jolie Mason’s sci-fi romance 47th Lancers series.
The book opens with a heart-breaking scene. “Briar” Rose MacClellen is having a conversation with an AI representation of her dead lover, “Beezer.” From beyond the grave, Beezer tells her that she needs to take care of his best friend, Herc. Because as Beezer always knew, Herc was as much in love with Briar as he himself had been in life. And if Briar was honest with herself, she knew about Herc’s feelings all along. And just maybe she has feelings for him, too. Against a backdrop of an epic battle, Briar begins to come to terms with Beezer’s death and the living man who loves her.
I absolutely love this series and this book is a terrific addition. The action is fast-paced and Mason doesn’t dumb down the technical details. The romance is heart-felt and passionate and it all comes together to create an epic story. What a great book!
