I was kind of iffy on reading this book. I’m wasn’t looking for a book to read – I have many books on my e-reader and my shelf that are unread! Should I even add a new-to-me author to my reading list at this point?
Luckily, my sub-conscious nudged me to go forward with Rege’s Rescue. Sometimes I just need to stop thinking so much and go with my feelings. It can pay off just like it did when I read this book!
Speaking of going with feelings, in Rege’s Rescue, Rege and Amethe need to figure out how to do that too. We’ve all seen it. Two people who are obviously developing feelings for each other, but they think of a million reasons why it will never work. In Rege’s Rescue, it will take about 230 pages for the heroine and hero to figure out the payoff, but it is so worth watching them do it. In the meantime, Rege and Amethe will have some adventures, get into trouble and need saving. And repeat! The book is mostly romance, but there is a lot of fun and danger along the way.
Rege and Amethe are personality opposites. Rege is dark and, dare I say, brooding. Convinced his past has made him no good. Amethe is light and cheerful, despite the nasty situation she has gotten thrown into. She has had the advantage of having a family that has made sure her life has been decent. Amethe sees the good in everyone. Is this an opposites attract romance? I don’t think so. While Rege may be drawn to Amethe’s inherent goodheartedness, I don’t think Amethe is looking at Rege’s dark past. She sees the man who rescued her in the present.
There is not much of a back story here. Rege’s past is murky as is the history of the group of men he has banded with to save the universe from evil. Amethe’s father and brother also have critical roles, but not much character development. These were just things I considered after I had read the book and did not detract from the story. Like I said, the book is mostly romance. A well developed heroine and a complex hero were all that was necessary to enjoy Rege’s Rescue.
You should consider reading Rege’s Rescue if you like a romance in a futuristic setting, space ships, tough guys, strong women, buddies, family, danger, adventure and a happily ever after!

About Rege’s Rescue
Rege Rovnitov battled his way out of the darkest hell hole in the charted universe to become the best tracker in four galaxies. Fighting injustice, he and his brotherhood have spent their lives with one foot on the shady side of the law. When the daughter of one of his allies is abducted by slavers, he offers his skills to bring her home. On such a dark and dangerous mission, he never expected to find a woman full of goodness and light.
After years in the spotlight as an interstellar songbird, Amethe Madigan only wants to regain a normal life. Her plans are upended when a band of slavers take her captive and drag her to the galactic port known as Sin City. With Rege’s help, she narrowly escapes being sold to the highest bidder, or worse, turned over to whoever ordered her kidnapping. As they race across galaxies evading her mysterious abductor’s attempts to possess her, she makes the mistake of falling in love with a man whose idea of a normal life is anything but safe.
Rege promised to rescue Amethe but she could be his salvation from a dark and lonely existence. In the end it won’t matter who saved whom. Where love is concerned, it’s winner takes all.
