About the book: Vivianne Blackstone devotes herself to her career, putting her love life on hold. Her latest project is a spaceship designed to protect Earth from the deadly Tribes. But its engineer, the alluring Jordan McArthur, now threatens both her job and her wary heart. . .
Jordan's past goes back to King Arthur, and he must find the ancient artifact that can save the galaxy. Vivianne's ship is his best hope, but convincing the fiercely independent beauty won't be easy. especially when the passion flaring between them burns through their defenses -- and love is the last thing they need to survive.
My thoughts: This is the third book in The Pendragon Legacy series. It continues to surprise me how much I like these books. I enjoy paranormal romance - but not so much sci-fi - which is how I would classify these. They are set in the future, involve other planets, spaceships, etc - though this one does have dragon shapers, King Arthur and Merlin! You can feel the attraction between Jordan and Vi, even though neither one of them wants to admit to it. As I moved through the book, I wanted Jordan and Vi to make a commitment to each other, even though it seemed as if it would be a doomed relationship. I am always looking for the happy ending! I did find it amusing though, that situations that would be impossible, or nearly impossible to solve, when set in the future, you just invent a robot or "power" to solve it. You can also see my review of Lucan, the first book in the series.
