Mercenaries by Angela Knight is definitely going to offend some readers. It's crude, it's lewd and it's vulgar. It's got everything that this girl wants!

The first story stars Trinity and Captain Nathan August and Sebastian Cole. Trinity is about to be auctioned off as a bride to some of the worst degenerate male chauvinists her chauvinistic planet has produced. Desperate to escape her grisly fate, she approaches Nathan and Sebastian as they are waiting for supplies, hoping for a ride off her pl

The story so far:
The mercenary crew of the Starrunner is called to the cleverly named BDSM colony, Bedesem, to aid the ruler in getting back his kidnapped son. They are greeted by Dom Javier, advisor to the Dominor, who takes them in to see His Dominance, Xarles Ferrau, Dominor of Rabican. The Dominess, Ila Orva, of the neighboring dominality of Corvo has kidnapped His Dominance's 26 year old son because His Dominance has reneged on their agreement to wed his son to the Dominess' brutally domina

This is my first Angela Knight book and Wow, was I unprepared! The sex is mostly hot and dirty, but sometimes almost laughable, it's so over-the-top.

The first story was the best for me, it was straight forward fun with a bit of romance and a lot of hot sex. I liked the characters, but honestly, this book was never intended to be a deep character study.

The second was less thrilling, but still interesting. The sex was not as hot, at least in my opinion.

The third story was boring all the way around

Ummm. Wow.

I actually really enjoyed this bind up of three novellas. I'm not really into things with BDSM elements, but Knight manages to make it work and work well.

I loved the sci-fi world of these stories, and have always had a soft spot for mercenary tales so this, along with plenty of spice and intrigue, ticked pretty much all the boxes for me.

Of course, the characters all fell in love way too quickly, but these are novellas, so in my eyes that's totally acceptable!

A warning, however, if you'

This was a very good trilogy of novellas. The first two were "revised for this edition" (which probably means toned down) from e-book versions, and are pretty darned hot. The third was written for this collection and is nearly as explicit without being as kinky.

As I've come to expect from Knight, the characters had depth, the plots were far from mundane, and the sex scenes actually served to advance the story. If you like your erotic romance with a lot of quality, this book is for you. If you li

Reading another Angela Knight book is I must say a very nice experience. I have yet to be disappointed by anything that I have read of hers. This book is no exception. 3 different stories with the same group of people. Mercenaries all. Nathan, Sebastion and Cassidy never seem to realize that they were looki for love until it bites them on the ass. Without giving the story away suffice it to say they are never the same again.

Trinity is stuck on a planet which is terrible. That "prophet" is a terrible cult. The society could have been fun. But instead, it was bad because instead of domineering assholes instead of hot dominants. Meeting up Nathan was the best thing that ever happened to her. This was very smexy and I've read is several times.

Sexy and exhilarating. Even with all its vulgarity and blatant erotic scenes! The stories were electric charged and dirty. They held a charm few shit stories hold that I'm not sure I can explain. I am rather sad that there are no more stories of the Starrunner as its crew is tight knit and interesting to read about.

This book is well written and imaginative. My first experience with this author and I was intrigued to say the least. The erotica was not overdone but left me wanting more. Will definately be exploring other titles by Angela Knight.

This was a quick erotic seduction. The only reason why I did not give it 5 starts because I wish that she but a 3 book series for the three main characters. I would have liked to be more connected to the characters before all the crazy "I LOVE YOU" stuff but all in all it was an erotic pleaser.

This was my first foray into romance short stories. I had just read Angela's Jane's Warlord and liked the world she created. This two story collection was similiar in vein and an absolute joy to read. Hot without being vulgar, top notch!
Three short "very steamy" and eye popping stories!
1. Trinity
2. The Thrall
3. Claiming Cassidy

It at some points actually made me laugh out loud, and I dont think that was what the author intended, but on the whole it was interesting and it was a fast read.

Loved the book and premise. Only regret is that they're a trio of short stories.

Ah, yes, my fave sort of Angela Knight - short, lots of sex, a H (or two) to die for and a very satisfied grin in my face. Yeah, I LOVE Angela Knight.

I read this one to get the taste of 50 Shades outta my mind and it did the job. Angela Knight does a pretty decent job blending sci-fi, fantasy and erotica with a little BDSM twist.
Odd/weird stuff. OK liked the Angela Knight story, but that was about it.
