Short review of The Captain's Promise by TJ Land.
BLURB: Now that the crew of The Prayer have settled down on an uninhabited alien world, their captain intends for them to forge a new life for themselves. But Khurshed's plans are interrupted when the ship receives a distress call from a nearby planet. While most of his lovers are excited by the prospect of making contact with their new neighbors, First Officer Antoine argues that responding might endanger the crew. As it turns out, his fears are well placed…
My Review: I was given a copy from Ninestar Press for review purposes. A new chapter in the saga about the men (and sometimes the women) of starship The Prayer. Although this time it was not told from the captain's point of view but from that of a number of the men. But that didn't detract from anything as it was still a great, sexy short story that set me up nicely for a night of great dreams. I was also surprised at some of the revelations that came out in this one, but you will have to read it yourselves if you want to know what they are. If you haven't read the first three books I recommend you do so before reading this one as the series is one that will only make sense when read in order. However, as they are not too expensive and are really hot and enjoyable, it shouldn't be a hardship to do so.
