Review – ‘Talson’s Wait’ by Marie Harte



Blurb 

Domineering, dangerous and downright huge, Roarke Talson owns Jamie for the next three years. It's 2109, and the government has found a way to deal with the national debt. Indentured service. She might have been duped into debt, but she's not stupid. Jamie made sure to put a no-sex clause in her contract. There's just one problem. She can't stop thinking about her boss. Sexy and commanding, he's the face of her ultimate fantasy, and a nightmare employer. She's met every challenge he's thrown at her and refuses to drop, no matter how hard he works her.

When Jamie does the wrong thing for the right reason, she assumes Talson will throw her in jail and not think twice. In an effort to escape, she ambushes him and flees, but not before taking a kiss and a bit more from the man.

She hadn't counted on him getting free so quickly, that he might be half alien, or that he'd hunt her down with more than vengeance on his mind.

Review 

In the first novella in the Talson’s Temptation series, the year is 2109, and the humans of Earth had made contact with the Otra aliens years earlier. The Otra are now living and working on the planet, but there’s prejudice between the two groups.
Indentured human servant Jamie Kendrick works for a prosperous, by-the-book shipping company, and though she’s a model employee, she decides to smuggle a man off the planet in one of the company’s crates. If she’s caught, that means she could die or end up as a sex slave in a camp. Though she’s worried that Roarke, her arrogant, dictator of a boss, will catch her, she’s insanely attracted to him. Unfortunately, she put a no-sex clause in her contract, which prohibits her boss from seducing her.
Part-Otra Roarke Talson runs his family’s shipping business with an iron hand, but when he discovers Jamie’s illegal activities, he’s not angry. He’s relieved. He’s craves her body and has wanted her to break her contract for the past year. Now he’s finally free to claim the woman he’s fallen in love with, but he has to hunt Jamie down first.
Jamie and Roarke are awesome. She’s smart and sassy, and though she’s had a rough life, she’s still a positive person. Roarke isn’t the gruff, harsh man he pretends to be; he’s honorable, protective, and downright sexy. They complement each other very well.
The story is fast paced with hot sex scenes and a good plot. I enjoyed the universe building and look forward to reading more stories in the series.
