Mya Centauri is a Princess on the run, sent away after her father's attempted assasination. Captain Jax Rouss was framed for the attempted assasination of his King 10 years ago, and has been on the run ever since. The last person he expected to find in his bed is the Princess Mya, particualarly as she was a child when he knew her last. Mya has always known in her heart that Jax was innocent, now she just has to prove it!
I need more! The Space Captain's Courtesan dragged me in from the very beginning, with the characters and the plot, and even better with the politics! I do love it when books capture the politics of governments and other organisations well, and mixing it up with the romance makes it work all the better in my opinion.
I never actually know what to make of relationships with large age gaps in my books, probably because I myself am attracted to people around the same age as me so I think it goes along those lines, but this book provided a solution to that! Stasis worked on the basis of freezing time for two years, no ageing or any of the associated processes, thus Mya and Jax were much closer to the same age while allowing Jax to have been older and a hero for Mya when she was a child.
I liked that most of the book was centred around the growing relationship between Mya and Jax, which wasn't always easy, and it took several turns that I didn't actually expect. Because they were both stubborn characters, with a lot of self assurance, they often clashed, though that just increased the tension between them (though they only let it out a couple of times!) I thought it felt right for the two of them to care for each other and love each other, particularly with their past history.
I also really liked the way that the customs of more than one planet were explored, I love it when good thought has to be put into Sci-Fi worlds, and it makes it feel more plausible. Interestingly I did feel that this story wasn't too far away time wise, technology could do a lot, but not everything.
Also a man that got weak kneed for his woman...I'll take that! This was a great read, I'd definitey suggest it!
I read little scifi, but I love Philip K. Dick, and from the beginning, I was reminded of Philip K. Dick, which in my opinion is the highest form of compliment for scifi! Mya and Jax are fantastic characters: complex, strong, determined, and they go through a lot of growth throughout the book. Mya is really awesome; she might be a princess and have been coddled all her life, but she’s resourceful, extremely tough in spite of appearances, and doesn’t fear much; Jax is rough around the edges, bitter and he definitely has his reasons. The chemistry and the attraction between the two is phenomenal, the verbal sparring is terrific and often hilarious; I loved how their relationship grew and changed; they make a terrific and dynamic pair.
THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN is very well written, at times quite lyrical, and it’s a thrilling, captivating, fun and very exciting read. Backed by a solid story, there is a lot of action, unexpected plot twists, stellar character development, and it’s very fast-paced. The world-building is very intricate, and always believable. THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN made me happy, even though Mya and Jax don’t have it easy at all, because it’s such a brilliant book. Fun, sexy, vibrant, lively, exciting, and I would recommend THE SPACE CAPTAIN’S COURTESAN to anyone, women and men as well: if you like romance, or if you like action, whether you like scifi or not, it’s simply a great book: just WOW!
