It’s not easy being a space pirate… Actually, wait. Yes it is. It’s keffing awesome.
The three va Sithai brothers — that’s us — cruise the universe looking for abandoned ships, treasure, and other pirate ships to rob. Right now, we’re on the hunt for the Buoyant Star, an abandoned cruiser rumored to have a massive treasure inside. The ship’s been found at the edge of an ice field at the far reaches of space.
That treasure? About to be all ours.
But the ship's not all that abandoned. The Star is crewed by a few lonely, attractive human females who are thoroughly grateful at being rescued…
Actually, wait. They’re not grateful at all.
They’ve set us a trap, and their leader, a beautiful human female named Jade, gives me a smile just before she captures me.
It’s official. I’m in love.
I found Ruby Dixon and realized I’m really into smutty alien romances when the aliens are horned blue dudes with tails and a special horn just for her pleasure about a year ago. Those aliens were all stuck on an ice planet. The Corsairs: Adiron the first book from the Corsair Brothers is the first book I’ve read in Ruby Dixon’s hot space guys world where the characters are in space. Apparently there are more out there, this is just the first one I’ve stumbled into.
Adiron, space pirate extraordinaire, has just found the ship he was looking for. It doesn’t exactly have the cargo he thought it would have on it. He was looking for silks, what he found was Jade. Well, an earth girl named Jade that is. She is beautiful and just sprung a trap on him knocking him out.
Jade has been stuck on this ship for three years. Only a few of the girls were brought out of storage for “fun” on the long journey and the four of them that were left behind have been playing this trick every so often for awhile. They scavenge what they need and send the pirates on their way none the wiser. But Adiron’s crew had a trick up their sleeve and now she is on their ship with this funny man alien guy who acts like he is besotted with her.
The Rudy Dixon stories are always a good time. There is the flirting, the fun, and the mating dance. I liked both Adiron and Jade. He is the fun loving, don’t take anything too serious sort and she is the “I’m always in charge and I just need a break sometimes” girl. Jade loves that Adiron is there to support and help her and she doesn’t need to do everything by herself. Now if they can just survive long enough to be rescued and save the rest of the cargo on the ship.
Hollie Jackson and Mayson Lloyd have narrated a lot of these books and I might get into the story even more because of their narration. Mason does Adiron’s voice so well and really makes him feel just a little more Alien with the pattern of speech and inflections. Holly really makes the girls likable and she brings this fun sense of whimsy to the story as well. I am able to listen to this at my usual 1.5x speed.
