An 11 and 1/2 hour flight is no problem when you have the right kind of book with you & this one was perfect. Having rejected an arranged marriage, Ada is on the run, one step ahead of her jilted fiancé & the various bands of mercenaries eager to collect on the big reward offered for her safe return. Captured, she needs the help of the most wanted/dangerous man in the galaxy to escape...and you can guess what happens from there. A fun read.

Outstanding. I've been on a SciFi kick lately, and this romance between a renegade heiress and a most-wanted fugitive was a delight. The hero and heroine learn to trust each other as they plot to take down their shared enemies. Family (found and biological) ties are strong and the supporting characters are well developed. I am looking forward to the next installment!

3.5*.
Overall, this is a great summery blockbuster set in space!
I fell in love with Ada and her relationship with her siblings, namely Bianca. I also loved Veronica and Rhys - strong, supporting friends, the sci-fi setting, and the many thrilling action-packed scenes.
Ava and Loch are 2 very appealing characters on their own, but they do not work well as a couple. The entire possessiveness, from both of them towards each other, is a tad cringy.

Currently rereading my favorite book of the year. Counts for the SRP bingo debut novel and separate SRP challenge of book that I‘ve read before. And it‘s awesome, to boot.

With an evening gig all week a reread is about my speed. What are you reading today?

Sunraven So far today: Caddie Woodlawn, and The Art of Communication. 😁 3mo

Think I stayed up 'till 3 am on my initial reading session, good thing it was the weekend. 😖 The ebook went on sale not long after I had finished, so I also snapped that up as my 'keeper' copy.

If you picked it up on sale, IMO worth bumping up on your TBR list.

Mehso-so

Frankly, I was disappointed. Conspiracy of Whispers by Ada Harper is a much better read if you're looking for Science Fiction Romance.

Anyway, find out why I was disappointed here...

This is Amazon's Deal of the Day. It's a sci-fi romance that is heavier on the sci-fi part. I really enjoyed it, but wouldn't have minded more romance.

Home run! This romantic space adventure is so my catnip. I can barely express how much I loved the plot and characters. Well written by an author with a computer background. Looking forward to the sequel.

I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance! Strangely enough I read it pretty much right after Nightchaser (strange because sci-fi romance is not a big sub-genre), and I have to say I enjoyed it more.

There's running from bounty hunters, politics, romance, and actual attempts at communication between the romantic leads😀 All of this on spaceships of course!
4 to 4.5🚀

That was fun. Sci-fi. Action. Adventure. Romance. Not necessarily in that order.

Listed as Science Fiction/Space Opera, this reads more like #romantsy!
Mind you, I'm not complaining, but hardcore SFF readers might as it doesn't really offer any new in terms of ideas or technology. Medical nanobots, Smart clothing, FTL transport... we've seen these things before. The appeal of the story lies pretty much in the strong female protag, Ada and, her chemistry with Loch.

YouBookMe Yep, this is definitely a romance novel with some sci-fi trappings, not a hard sci-fi novel. Lots of fun though! 7mo

Currently reading. Seems interesting so far.
Edit: 3 solid stars. Fast paced story and likeable characters- what‘s to want more.

This was so much fun.

Lady Ada has been on the run from her father for 2 years, refusing to marry a man she despises for the good of politics. When she‘s finally captured by mercs she‘s thrown in a cell with the most wanted criminal in the universe. Can they join forces to both get what they need?

Non-stop space action, a bit steamy and a nod to Whedon‘s Firefly, I‘m looking forward to the second book in Oct. 2019.

My best reading month in years! 18 finished, including graphic novels, YA, non-fiction, and space opera. Best read of a really good month is the tagged book, followed closely by Anne Bishop‘s Lake Silence. 1 DNF of a graphic novel, and 4565 pages! That‘s over 700 more than last month.

Assuming I won‘t finish my current read this month, as I‘m 150 pages out.

TheSpineView Congrats! Great numbers!👏 8mo

Yay for finding my name (spelled correctly!) in this book; boo for it being one of the villains.

During yesterday‘s lap of #24B4Monday I got more than halfway through this awesome book, and plan to finish it today. I doubt I‘ll make my goal of 16 hours and change, but it‘s been good reading time regardless!

A fun space adventure/#romantsy with a strong and awesome heroine, Ada. Ada has amazing friends and family, a good heart and a wonderful sense of self. Loch is a sensitive super-soldier/criminal who helps Ada escape when she‘s captured by mercenaries. Really great world building and supporting characters. 💕💕

I am SOOOO impatient for this book! I‘ve been waiting forever and it‘s getting so close! Curse Ilona Andrews for getting me hooked on the tidbits when it was over a year out from publication.
