Review: Starline By Imogene Nix

One man, one woman, one psychotic alien. Now the race is on to save humanity. Past. Present. Future.

Mellissa Davis is your average bookstore owner and aspiring romance author until one day an electronic book pad slides through the mail slot of her little bookstore. Now all she has to worry about is a sexy time travelling stealthship captain, staying out of the way of the bad guy and saving the universe, past and present. Not much to ask…

Duvall McCord, an up and coming stealthship captain travels to the past to stop the Ru’Edan leader, Crick Sur Banden, destroying the Earth Empire of the future. His mission? Retrieve the handbook for the Elector. He doesn’t count on love, or saving the woman of his dreams. But time is running out. This warrior must do everything he can to stop the plot…

My Review:

I'd like to start off with some cover love.  That is truly a beautiful cover on a really enjoyable read!! Duvall's character is a true depiction of a man married to the military, or in this case to his ship.  He is one of those..If I was meant to marry the army would issue me a wife kinda guys.  You get the picture, he is literally the job.  Even his friends doubt he is totally human.  It takes one little human writer from our time to literally knock him of his feet.  All of those lovely mantras of love em' and leave 'em, slowly go flying out the door.

Mellissa is a pretty cool chick.  By day, she is a mild mannered book store owner.  By night she has begun her second career of writing Sci-fi romances.  So imagine her surprise when her book literally comes to life.  I think she handles it pretty well.  She ripped from her time because of a package that was dropped in her store.  Duvall had tracked it to her time and location.  It doesn't add up at first but Mellissa has an important role in the development of time-travel.  She was deliberately targeted and if Duvall hadn't snatched her out of the way, Crick would have had her killed.

This was a great book!! You follow Duvall's learning about love and having an actual relationship with feelings and his search to eradicate Cricks infiltrators.  You also follow Mellissa as she starts completely over again in a foreign world where books don't exist.  What a horrid twist!!  But she is determined to fit in somewhere and to to stay by Duvall.  Together, along with three other really close friends, they strive to uncover and destroy the enemies before the enemies destroy them.I can't wait to read the next book!  This has the makings of a really good series!!!

Thanks for the review Nikki. I loved writing Starline.

But I'm wondering...

What are readers favourite aspects of genres. For me...well I like a strong female - one who can lead but still have an innately feminine side.

Please readers...

Tell me what you like :)
