He’s relentless. He’s aggressive. His armor is scarred to hell.

Toth Krag is infamous among bounty hunters. Nobody has ever seen his face and lived to tell the tale. He doesn’t fail. He doesn’t quit. And he doesn’t take prisoners. But maybe he’s getting soft. For once, he showed mercy, and no good deed goes unpunished, so now he’s tracking the deadbeats who run Volant’s Fabulous Spectacle.

She’s casual. She’s spontaneous. She never liked Earth that much anyway.

Yara Duncan is always at the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s how she wound up as the human attraction in a space circus. Frankly, it’s the best gig she’s ever had. Aliens pay to watch her eat and do puzzles, and she gets to see the galaxy free of charge. She’s enjoying the adventure, until the scariest hunter in the universe shows up. For some reason, he thinks she’s in charge, and he’s determined to drag her back to face his employers.

Yara doesn’t run from her problems, and Krag doesn’t know what to do with a human who seems more interested in what he looks like under his armor. This time, the hunter becomes the hunted in the wildly unpredictable game of love...

Sophia Rose’s Review

The scariest bounty hunter in the galaxy encounters his toughest job yet when the odd alien agrees to come along without resistance. In this third and final Galactic Love book, we return to a human-alien romance and it was a fabulous way to finish the series. This was my first time catching the series in audio with a new to me narrator so I was interested to see how that would go.

Incidentally, these stories can all work standalone, though the slight mentions of characters from previous books might be enough for some reader/listeners to need the series in order.

Toth Krag is a bounty hunter legend across the galaxy.  Retrievals often just give up and beg for mercy when he arrives. But, the truth is, he is the 12th Toth Krag working off his indentureship to the Guild and the job has been going sour for some time. Job by job he gets closer to freedom, but what he’ll do with it, he doesn’t know. That said, anything would be better than this lonely existence.
Okay, by anything, he didn’t mean being stuck on his small ship with the little chatty human trailing him about using her verbal wiles on him. And, he really should watch what his ship bot is oversharing with her because suddenly helping the little human out of her own debt troubles and clearing his debt to the Guild sounds like a good plan. But, maybe that was just the translator missing whatever human slang she is using.

Yara Duncan has been keeping it zen a whole lot longer than the night she was stolen from earth by alien pirates and had to figure out how to survive out there among all the bizarre aliens with no proper ID, credits, or a good translator. Her last gig with an alien carnival got her nabbed for the owner’s debts and now she’s got a big mysterious bounty hunter to con into helping her escape her fate. Only Yara figures out what no one else has- Toth Krag. And, she wouldn’t ditch him now even if she could. They have a team to assemble and a heist to carry out.

Scarlett Dorian was easy to listen to as narrator of the story and she had good distinct voices for all the characters even the aliens and bots. So, a motley crew of aliens led by a wily human and a heist with half the galaxy on their tail for the bounty or revenge. Oh the fun times! The tone of this series is light in ways, lots of alien-ness including in the romance, lots of action, some twists, an adorable alien hero (under all that scary armor), and a fun, quirky cast of characters including the bots (love WU-T2). Those who enjoy light and sexy sci-fi romance should definitely give this series a go.

    OH! I didn’t know this was the last in the series. Makes sense, tho. I completely missed the connect with the earlier books until nearly the end of the book. I love how it came full circle. This is a wonderful alien-human romance series that goes beyond the “I’ve been kidnapped by an alien” into something a bit deeper.

      Hopefully, I got that wrong and there are more. I’d snatch them up. 🙂

      Yes, she takes the alien romance to a new level and avoids the sfr cliches. I want to read her Siratha Jax series soon.
