3.5 - "There's always a choice." Stars.

Space is definitely the 'final frontier' for me when it comes to reading a romance novel. I can honestly say it isn't an area that I would normally look for my romance 'jollies', and in truth it probably isn't a genre that I will be rushing out to buy more o... ...more

Rico is a vampire born in the 15th century. He's a mercenary with his own ship, with a strange crew, and he uses sex as a substitute for his darker cravings. Those cravings are the reason he got entangled with Skylar, it became known throughout the universe that he has a weakness for pretty women... ...more

A sizzling hot Space Opera complete with vampires!

Skylar is on first solo mission as an elite intelligence officer. Disconnected from her team, she’s completely on her own, and this mission cannot fail. She’s trained for every situation, except a sexy vampire rogue who wants to take advantage of... ...more

By Rachel July 02, 2011

I've not read much sci-fi/space opera romance, but if they are all like this, I may be hooked. The story begins with Rico running for his life and doesn't stop the fast paced race until the very end. He's one hot hero. I love that he's not stupid and stayed one step ahead of the heroine.

Skylar is... ...more

LOVE this story!!! So unique!!! It is like the tv show Firefly, in a book, with a vampire! Seriously how could it get any better than that. Will definitely be looking for more of these! Such a wonderfully original idea which merges my top 2 pleasures (sci fi and vampires) into one book. SO glad... ...more

3.5 stars rounded up for good world building and good writing. An enjoyable read, but I found it hard to care about the main characters. ...more

I was lucky enough to win this book in a Goodreads giveaway! I am so happy for that! Definitely a book worth reading! Fast-paced, full of adventure and sexy, this story combines the best elements from a vampire and a sci-fi story. Set in the distant future, it shows us a very different world, not... ...more

This novella was a fast, fun read for me. It starts off strong and keeps getting better. I loved the action scenes and the dialogues with the secondary characters. This crew truly shines as far as I am concerned, each had distinctive personalities and quirks, and I couldn’t help but love them – T... ...more

By Dana January 05, 2012

Break Out by Nina Croft is a paranormal sci-fi symphony! It is a literary fantasy set in the future that is believable and imaginative. Croft sets these two genres up in an unbelievable story of a space traveling vamp, altered humans, and the forces at play. The story carries you through space wi... ...more

By Gemma April 03, 2012

A great start to an interesting series which managed to keep my interest from beginning to end. It can be read as a stand alone but it does leave you wanting to find out about the rest of the characters on the ship. My only gripe is that I would have loved for it to be longer. Luckily, for the Ma... ...more

Ok I will admit when I heard all the buzz about this book my first thought was "Vampires in space?"

I should also mention that I'm not one to read much sci-fi...

But I REALLY had fun reading this novella!!!

I thought Rico was fun, dangerous, and still had a hint of dark sadness hidden deep inside. I... ...more

I have recently started getting into the sci-fi genre so when I was asked to be a part of this tour I couldn't refuse. Not only is is sci-fi, but there is quite a good amount of steamy romance in it too. I love the romance novels that Entangled Publishing puts out, so I knew that I wouldn't be di... ...more
