Intrigue, sex and planetary domination are swiftly flowing stellar undercurrents at Casino Star Shine.

Sold by space pirates to Casino Star Shine, Blaze is determined to escape before she is sold at their virgin auction. Her escape attempt is foiled as, tackled by Casino guards, she tumbles at the feet of Lord Kalx.

Attracted to the fiery duchess, Kalx’s vacation of gaming and exploring erotic escapes with the Casino’s trained ladies dulls. Biding his time until he can buy Blaze at the auction, he meets an ominous woman general. She’s rumored to be intent on buying Blaze as a ransom in exchange for a rare mineral found on her world, and Kalx senses her malicious intent. Outbidding the general, he wins Blaze and marries her to unite their two worlds.

A relationship of master versus slave/wife turns to one of trust, respect and love. However, the general is determined to snatch Blaze by any way possible, including murder.

What do you do when you have something valuable? Guard it with your life. What about when the valuable item is another person you hardly know? Buy them at the Casino Star Shine.

Kalx is a king and excellent judge of people. He can sense when they have evil on their minds. Minestra simply wanted to defend her land, until pirates took that away. Her fire and attitude either reels people in or pushes them away. In Kalx’s case, he’s hooked.

I liked Ms. Summers writing. Her characters are engaging and keep the reader interested in the story. The details are rich and sumptuous. She uses secondary characters well to buoy the story.

The relationships between the characters happen fast, but I liked that Kalx took to her based on her being, not her beauty. People can relate to that. We want to be wanted for who we are inside. I also liked that they worked together for the common good. They shared the heroism. And the baddie? Very nicely evil. You rooted for her to see defeat or die trying.

If you want a saucy read for an afternoon at the beach, then find a copy of Casino Star Shine. I give this novella 4½ cherries.
