When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he’s convinced it’s a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn’t hard to find. He’s the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he’s far from subtle.
Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan’s even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally—especially since neither of them do personal.
Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.
It’s no secret that sci-fi is one of my favourite genres, especially when you add mm romance to the mix. While No Quarter is more space opera than sci-fi, it still fits the bill and was a pleasure to read.
I really liked the complex characters who were more than they first appeared. They fit so well together – the bounty hunter and the pirate captain. While the story wasn’t terribly complex, it was entertaining and the romance good. I could see these two bending for each other. It didn’t feel false or forced.
I liked the action bits, a space opera is nothing without at least one good space battle, and I liked the crew of the Belle Curve (what little we see). Little mysteries are solved and people are betrayed with new loyalties made.
Definitely a great start to the series and I look forward to the next book. I have to admit that while my records indicate I read this series when it was previously published (and liked it), I didn’t remember it. I won’t be forgetting it again.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
