And then everything was bright and uncomfortably warm. Things poked her. Sounds drifted, garbled. She wanted desperately to sneeze. Then she was thirsty. Gin. A tall iced gin. Double limes. Trilby Elliot opened her eyes. Everything was dark again. No. Dim. Her vision hazed, then focused like her old binocs. An annoying beeping sound. She tried to turn her head, decided the effort wasn’t worth it. She moved her gaze through the dimness. Red numbers to the left. Damned beeper over her head.

Except for one small problem: the pilot, Rhis, is still alive and intent on commandeering her ship.

It’s been a long time since I have come across a book this good.

Best I have read all year. I would give it six stars if I could.

If you like science fiction and a good romance, this book is for you. The romance is good as is the plot. The two are perfectly intertwined, and I feel like the book would've been flat without either. Really the first book I have read in ages where both the plot and romance are so well crafted.

For the story itself, imagine Han Solo is a woman and Darth Vader isn’t really evil and isn’t more machine than man. And there you have an amazing set-up for the story.

The story starts out with Trilby Elliot seeing a spacecraft crash near her own dilapidated ship. Nothing quite works right on her ship, she has no money to repair it, and even those things that work have a few faults, including her droid co-pilot. Sounds like the Millennium Falcon and C3PO, right?

She goes to the crash site to salvage it and instead of finding a ‘Sco enemy, she finds an Imperial officer who was escaping from the ‘Sco. She takes him back to patch him up.

When Tivahr wakes up in sick bay, he’s determined to get back to the Empire and tell them what he learned in ‘Sco territory. He thinks it’s important enough that the Empire itself is at risk. Rather than telling her he’s the High Captain of the Enterprise, err, Razalka (the fastest, best armed Hunter ship around and the height of Imperial technology), he lies and says he’s a lieutenant.

Eventually the two start working together to get her ship flight worthy. She’s had trouble with men and recently broke up with a man that was rich, wealthy and powerful. She is very happy “Rhys” is only a lieutenant. He “gets” what it’s like to have to take orders even if he does do it aboard a cushy top-of-the-line Imperial ship.

Things get steamy between them, and I love the fact that she jumps him.

They finally get her ship up and working. Rhys is a hacker extraordinaire, even better than Trilby. And that’s saying something.

On their way out, they get attacked by the ‘Sco. They survive because Rhys is awesome, and he uses the opportunity to convince her to go back to Imperial space and rendezvous with his ship.

There are some hijinks as they meet up with his ship, but this was the only part of the book I wanted to hurry up. I was annoyed how long it took her to stop hating Tivahr because he lied and said he was lieutenant. Of course he lied. Who would make themselves out to be a better hostage?

It doesn’t take them too long to figure out that it was the data banks on her ship the ‘Sco were after. Why? Because her ship is old, and the data banks on it are even older. And there are some forgotten back doors into empire territory that the ‘Sco want, especially as they are making a deal with the Conclave. This could mean war all over again, and this time, the Empire will be at a severe disadvantage.

Pros

1. The story has a plot. A good one.
2. I loved Trillby. She’s strong willed, a skilled hacker, and a good pilot. She’s also compassionate, loves her friends, and does her best to keep herself fed.
3. I loved “Rhys” or Tivahr the Terrible. Yes, he’s a demanding jerk when he gets back to his ship. In control. Powerful. But he still loves Trilby, and it makes him human and you can identify with him. He also did laundry for her and got the towels fluffy.
4. I loved that Rhys changed by the end of the book. Still arrogant. But not loathsome.
5. Their romance was earned. It wasn’t love at first sight. As a matter-of-fact, he had to overcome the fact he took her hostage at first sight.
6. And he fixes her droid for her. True love, that.
7. The romance is sweet and tender. A true romance.
8. The steamy scenes are steamy, but also tender and passionate. Not something you’ll go back to reread, but fit very well in the story.
9. The world building is spectacular. I don’t know what a mizzet is, but I know their farts are foul. Lots of colloquialisms unique to the world, and even snippets of an Imperial language. Never overdone, never bossy or in your face. Very well done, in fact.
10. Easy to hate the ‘Sco and Trillby’s ex without either being over-the-top.

Cons

1. The only con to the story was when Trilby was being irrational about Rhys lying, and the whole thing didn't feel in character for her. I get that the author didn’t want to get them together too soon, but with all the other tension of the plot going on in the book, it would’ve been fine for this to be less of an issue than it was.

Okay, so yeah, only one con in the whole book. It was fabulous. I devoured it in less than 24 hours and had to force myself to put it down to go to bed Saturday night. So glad I started reading it on a weekend as I finished it Sunday morning! I am definitely going to check out this author’s other books.

This is the first book by Linnea Sinclair I've read. It was a book I found myself lost in at times, but it kept drawing me further into the story anyway. There were parts that were confusing about the political issues, trying to keep straight who was whom, and being computer illiterate, I was completely lost. But I liked the characters too much to give up on who was on which side and what they were able to accomplish on their computer systems. Seemed like this could have been one story of a couple...this one being the second so that there was time for more introduction of who was whom. It kind of drops you Into a new society, in a new galaxy, into an already started situation with no introduction. But the story was a good one and kept me reading. Well worth the effort and I'll continue to look at other stories by Ms Sinclair.

This was the first book by Linnea Sinclair that I read, and it grabbed me right away. I read it in paperback when it was released in 2005, and when I saw it was available on kindle, I had to add it to my digital collection. This is sci-fi romance at it's best- fast paced, witty, full of danger, steamy love scenes, and full length with a happily ever after ending. Also, for those who are like me and have no patience for books filled with errors that could have been found by a 5th grader, this is professionally proofread.
The story starts with Trilby, a freighter Captain scrimping by to make ends meet, on a jungle planet while making upgrades to her ship when she sees a small ship crash nearby. Thinking no-one could have survived, she sees a chance to make some cash from the salvage. She and her droid buddy hike there to find a very alive but unconscious man. She can't leave him there even knowing he could bring big trouble. I don't want to spoil the story... but he isn't what he seems, and when she discovers who he really is, and danger approaches from an ex and galactic war threatens... well, read this one and see for yourself:) I wish there would be a sequel. Never fear, this one's a stand alone, no cliffhanger.

I am so glad I picked this up right after it was recommended to me. It was phenomenal. Exactly my kind of story. It had a mechanically inclined heroine and a strong as hell hero.

It was a chance meeting, a but of patching up and the story was off with a bang!

So much good tension, intrigue and the adventure was detailed and exciting.

Just loved the heck out of it.

FINDERS KEEPERS, a futuristic romance, had a wonderful blend of interesting characters, a shot of come-what-may reality and wonderful chemistry between the hero and heroine. There are many futuristic romances that have been written over the years but rarely are they this good. I am somewhat reminded of the '2176 series' with books written by Susan Grant, Kathleen Nance, Liz Maverick and Patti O'Shea; all good stories that had intelligent women who could make do in a tight spot.

Both a strong and smart heroine, CaptainTrilby Elliot had to land unexpectedly on Avanar, an illegal repair site. While there she met Rhis Vanur, an independent trader, or so she thought. Before long, they are hunted by a race intent on taking over all-the-known universe. And so their adventures began.

Plenty of action is incorporated within the pages. And, of course, Trilby and Rhis do their best to avoid a romance but it is unavoidable when they work together in such close quarters. I loved this stubborn couple's gradual development of their relationship.

Linnea Sinclair is a gifted storyteller and made this a fun read. This story had just the right amount of wit, some comical moments and love scenes that sizzled. If you are looking for a good futuristic romance, take a chance and read FINDERS KEEPERS. You will be glad you did.
