A few days ago, in a galaxy right here...

The earth faces total annihilation and one young woman signs up for a mission to rescue humanity. Only she ends up getting rescued herself, by a gorgeous space pirate. And the sex is out of this world!

Hopeless romantic, Ruby Robbins spends her days as an accounts clerk, and her nights with her head in the stars, dreaming of space adventures in the arms of an alien…or two. Then one day, she’s approached to help her country by going undercover…in space! She jumps at the chance and before she knows it, she finds herself in the cargo hold of an alien slaver ship.

Space pirate, Killian Sharpe owes a lot of money to some very bad people. So when an anonymous employer offers him a tidy sum to extract one Ruby Robbins from a slaver ship, it sounds like easy money. But once he sets eyes on Ruby, he knows he’s in over his head. Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful—she refuses to be saved.

Luckily Killian hasn’t met a woman yet who could hold out against him for long….

The Ruby Robbins' Sexy Space Odyssey 3-Part Serial is best enjoyed in order.
Reading Order:
Part 1 - Rescued by the Space Pirate

“Rescued by The Space Pirate is a sexy, unique sci-fi novel and I cannot wait to get my hands on Stolen by the Space Pirate!!.If you love all these things in your books you should definitely pick up a copy of Rescued by the Space Pirate as soon as you can.” - JoDeen Anderson, JoJo the Bookaholic

 “This is a fun, sexy story and maybe a little bit silly….It's a satisfying read for a short 70 pages and doesn't end with much of a cliffhanger, but things are happening, and Killian and Zak are off to rescue Ruby again.” -Deanna Lang, Deanna’s World

 “My favorite of the three hands down. I loved Killian and Zak, they were my favorites, the little peeks at the world were interesting and Ruby didn't overly annoy me. Of course it was, hot, hot, hot!” - Karen Stewart, Geek Peak Sneak

 “This is an easy read and filled with some very hot action. Can't wait for the next one.” - Samantha Alvey, Goodreads

 “This was easy to read, had some hot menage action and was a great start to Ruby's space adventure. If you like smut with space pirates, blue knobbly cocked aliens and feisty heroines, then this is the book for you.” - Rebecca Magowan, Goodreads

 “This was really well-written (no surprise - Nina Croft! :) ), with characters that I liked immediately and wanted to know more about. The story and world are compelling as well.” - Samantha Bilodeau

 “This is fast paced and very erotic compared to Nina's other series, but nevertheless it takes us to the first cliffhanger making you need to read the next book.” - Lin Cunningham, Goodreads

“If you're looking for Alien Erotica, this definitely fits the bill.” - Mindy Lou’s Book Reviews

I finished this book in about three hours reading time. Nina has me hooked already in this novella. I'm a fan with the well done cliffhanger and this book has one.

Rescued by the Space Pirate is a fun, sexy space adventure where human Ruby gets "kidnapped" by alien sex slavers and gets "rescued" by Killian, a human space pirate. Sexy shenanigans ensue, including a rather odd turn of events when it comes to Ruby and her desire to be rescued.

First off, this is ...more

Scifi Romance is my very favorite genre and this one was a fun sexy read. The world building was intriguing and though I admit I don't usually read books with cliff hangers this one intrigued me and I just had to read it. I will say the heroine disappointed me a bit. She was brave and fearless but n ...more
