Publisher's Summary

Fighting for love, honor, and freedom on the galaxy's lawless outer rim...
It was supposed to be an exciting job on a space station, but instead, scientist Dr. Regan Forrest finds herself fighting for her life when she's kidnapped by alien slavers. Far from Earth and forced into a violent gladiatorial arena on the outer rim, she finds herself swept into the brawny arms of a big, wild alien gladiator.
Weapon, brute, gladiator, warrior...Sirrush warrior Thorin has been called many things. As a warrior of his people, he was a dark, dangerous weapon until even his own family were too afraid of him. Sold into slavery in the Kor Magna Arena, he has long ago earned his freedom. Now he enjoys the violent but rewarding life he's carved out for himself. Until he rescues one small, smart, and perplexing female from alien slavers.
Regan is determined to make a place for herself in her new home. She may not have the skills to fight in the arena, but she's smart and knows she can help...even as she fights her attraction to the big, bold, and fascinating Thorin. She knows he'll never be interested in her. But when Regan catches a glimpse of her cousin across a crowded market, she needs help to mount a rescue, and it comes in the form of the gladiator she desperately wants. A gladiator hiding a dark, uncontrollable secret with the power to destroy them both.

Really enjoyed this one

This series continues to be a pleasant delight. Anna Hackett has a way of painting the exact picture of an alien world and even though all of the scenarios are fiction and refreshingly new, you understand the characters and their world. I liked the H/h in this book as well, both fighting an attraction that keeps pulling at them. I really like what Anna Hackett has done here - well worth the credit.

Warrior is a hit

This is the second book in this latest series by Anna Hackett, and it is a great read! While it can be read as a standalone, there are references and characters from the first book that enrich the enjoyment if you go in order. This review might include some information about the first book, so if you haven't read it yet, go do that first!

Regan is trying to navigate her new situation. After being kidnapped from her research station and stranded on a far away planet, she has a lot of obstacles to get over. One positive? She has her friend Harper - who was a space marine before the kidnapping and was instrumental in Regan's rescue. (After her own story and romance that is - see book 1: Gladiator) Another plus is Thorin. Hot, hunky, and a major help in her rescue, Regan finds herself drawn to this standoff-ish man who sometimes forgets to keep away.

On a gladiator planet but no warrior, Regan finds ways to make herself useful with her botanical skills -with some surprising results. She also tries to figure out why she can't get Thorin out of her mind. Something especially difficult when Thorin himself does incredibly thoughtful things for her and is in a "friendly" mood...before withdrawing again.

The push-pull dynamic between these two is wonderful, and the obstacles don't feel like enough to keep these two apart - unless a certain bloodthirsty, greedy race has anything to do about it.

Like you do sometimes watching a show, I found myself shouting at the characters like they could hear my advice. I was gifted this book with the option to review and it is well worth the read!

I am totally swooning right now omg Torin and Regan's story is sweet and beautiful. Two individual who doesn't think their good enough to be love for themselves found each other. Love cross all boundaries no matter what as the saying goes. Love is blind. Vivienne Leheny as the narrator always fascinates me her voice I mean, she has a unique and incredible voice that can portrays all the characters individually.
