If the assignment is crazy, dangerous, or a little of both, Sub-Lieutenant Sebastian Rayne can’t help but take on the challenge. So when Command Intelligence tags him to fly one of their agents behind enemy lines, it seems like just another routine death-defying mission. Crash landing on the planet was a piece of cake, but the gorgeous agent he delivered safely to her meeting is now believed dead and he must return to retrieve her body.

After Agent Jenna Branson realizes her own people attempted to have her killed, she enlists the hot stick jockey’s help. His new mission? Sneak her back onto his ship to ferret out who wanted to get rid of her and why. But she fears her growing feelings for Seb have blinded her to his reckless insistence on helping her stay alive, and his rash behavior will cause them both to lose their lives.

5 stars "I'm not typically a sci-fi type reader, but I loved this book! It took me two days to read because I devoured every single word, every nuance, every detail between Agent Jenna Maxwell and Sub-Lt. Seb Rayne. Hot!" ~Ayekah, Goodreads

5 stars "Ms. Anastasi has penned an incredible read in this book where the chemistry was sizzling. The romance is explosive and the ending had me cheering for this couple's happy ever after, because what happens had me on the edge-of-my-seat..." ~Bec, Goodreads

5 stars "[The characters'] interactions are witty but passionate and loving. The plot is strong and convincing. The team spirit of the stick jockeys is exemplary. This novel is full of suspense. It had me guessing and on the edge of my seat most of the time. It's so well constructed that it's like watching a movie." ~Brigitte, Goodreads

5 stars "From the start, I was drawn into Seb and Jenna's plot. The dialogue feels natural, the world feels complete, and the characters - both main and secondary - are developed. [...] There were lots of twists and turns that kept me engaged." ~Rhi, Goodreads

5 stars "[The characters] have plenty of sparky banter and I loved the way the kind of goad each other into doing what they want! [...] Plenty of mystery, thrills/spills and romance and a great paced story. I really love Sci Fi romance and this series has been amazing so far." ~Nikki, Goodreads

5 stars "Cover Fire may be the best in this series to date. [...] It will take almost getting killed to bring these two together but once they fall nothing and no one is going to break them apart. I enjoy this series and can't wait to see what is brewing between Bren and Cam." ~Donna, Goodreads

4 stars "There's such a strong visual element in Jess Anastasi's writing such that reading every book of hers is akin to watching a novelisation of a fast-paced tv episode that's a combination of a space opera and a summer blockbuster. And it rings every bell that I have..." ~Unstuck Pages

5 stars "Lots of intrigue and exciting fights. It's hard to say just who is the real hero in this story because the females involved can really kick ass. Great fun, I loved it." ~Petula, Goodreads

A suspenseful whirlwind…

I really enjoyed Seb and Jenna’s action-filled courtship! They were both on the same side – the good one – but one fought in the shadows while the other, well, he hid nothing….

Talk about opposites attract! Seb is a seemingly happy-go-lucky, adventure-seeking fighter pilot whi ...more

It's ages since I've read a good Sci-Fi Romance, and this is an excellent example of one. I loved this story, it was full of action and adventure, deadly peril and intrigue, not to mention plot twists that came out of the blue.

I read this book before the others. It's a good standalone. I would've understand the emotional background better had I read the books in order. Sebastian Rayne will take any job--the crazier the better. He didn't plan crash landing on an alien planet with a spy. Jenna Maxwell didn't plan to have a ...more

Cover Fire may be the best in this series to date. Seb is not a total Alpha but he is kind, funny and troubled. CI Agent Jenna Maxwell has been in the game too long.

Given my lukewarm feelings towards the previous book in this series (Damage Control), I was a little hesitant about reading this book. No need!

About the author

Jess Anastasi

Jess has been making up stories ever since she can remember. Though her messy handwriting made it hard for anyone else to read them, she wasn't deterred and now she gets to make up stories for a living. She loves loud music, a good book on a rainy day, and probably spends too much time watching too many TV shows. Jess lives in regional Victoria, Australia, with her very supportive husband, three daughters, one ball-obsessed border collie, and one cat who thinks he's one of the kids.
