It's a late winter night when Patricia Risden heads home in her car, on a road she's driven many times before. She doesn't have a care in the world, that is, until a man appears from nowhere, right in front of her.

The next thing she knows is being a prisoner of the unscrupulous Alliance Commander Travis 152; an intimidating man who demands information and complete coopera

I'm a science fiction buff, and I always appreciate some new ideas. Too many books go around the same subject in slightly different ways, and it grows boring quickly. Also, too many books have as many pages describing technology and environment as the story itself. This author avoids falling into both traps.

I enjoy the story and the way the hero is both scary, scarred, and sexy. He's the kind of guy you'd want to see on TV! On the matter of sexy, I had expected the book to be a little less PG 13

Patricia Risden in in the wrong place at the wrong time, and she almost collides with a man who appears from nowhere in the middle of the road. Her car slides off the road and flips on the roof, and she is rendered unconscious by the impact. When she wakes up again, she is on a spacship, taken aboard by the Alliance Commander Travis 152.

He soon realizes that he has made a mistake, and he has to figure out what to do with her. As he says later in the book, "Tricia has the technical abilities of

My Review:
I love a good sci fi adventure romance and this was definitely a good one. It started out a bit like the headlines from one of the checkout rags in the grocery store. A woman driving down a dark deserted road and almost hits a man. The next thing she knows, she's waking up imprisoned aboard a space ship. It seems the man that Patricia almost hit was part of a Rebel group trying to outrun Travis, an Alliance Commander. Travis thinks that because he saw Patricia with William (the Rebel)

Did you ever think that it might be fun if Scotty "beamed you up"?

I certainly did.

But that's not quite the way it works out for Patricia Risden in Kidnapped by Maria Hammarblad. Oh, Tricia gets "beamed up" all right. And imprisoned. Because the world of the Alliance is a lot colder and bleaker than the Federation.

And Alliance Commander Travis isn't like anyone on the Enterprise. Unless you're thinking of the Mirror universe Enterprise. The one where the univer

I was so excited to win this on goodreads that I started reading it as soon as I got it. It looked really interesting in the description about it. I love anything with romance, so I thought despite the scifi aspect of it that I normally save for the movie screen, why not?? I'm normally not into the whole outer space thing in the books that I like to read, but this was quite good. I really liked the romance aspect of the book & how the charecters developed. Maria Hammarblad is a very talanted ...more

I really, really, really loved it. But then I didn't really like the ending. I, mean, it was *okay* I guess. I was entertained! Good worldbuilding and character development. Super cool dynamics!

I won this book on one of the first reads giveaways. I have to admit the first chapter confused me as to what I had signed up for -- but as the character development began I started to really care about the characters and wonder what would happen to them and how things would turn out. The auther did a great job at using creativity to keep me interested and wanting more.

A sci-fi person I am not! BUT, I enjoyed this book from the moment I got it, right to the end! Will recommend this book to everyone to read and will convince other non sci-fi readers to read it. Well written and I am looking forward to reading other books by Maria Hammarblad.... I am now a fan!

The ONLY bit I didn't really like was here was this guy willing to do anything for her and she was just helpless/useless, at times. He just did something HUGE and she can't even give him a shot of antibiotics. Really? After what he just did he shouldn't have to give himself a shot. He's suffering through hours of surgery, without pain meds, and she wants to go wondering the hours to avoid the sight. Really? Hold his good hand. Stroke his hair. Something!!!

Shelves: dnf
Half-way thru I had to stop. I couldn't continue on because it's so not my cup of tea. It's science fiction/romance which is a genre I'm not a fan of. The whole different planets, universe, space ships, etc., not what I'm into. I can watch it as a movie, but not read it. So in the end I can't comment if the book was bad or good.

Great sci-fi adventure! I'm not really into sci-fi but loved the character depth in this book. Maria Hammarblad is a gifted writer and if you love outerspace, romance and action you will love this book, it has it all! :)

DNF - omg, this was horrible. I couldn't finish it. So lame.

I was expecting something completely BETTER.

Born in Sweden in the early 1970's, Maria showed a large interest for books early in her life. Even before she was able to read or write, she made her mom staple papers together that she drew suns in, and proudly declared them to be the "Sun Book." They were all about the sun. This fascination with books and writing lasted through her teens, but as an adult, her career veered off towards desktop p ...more
