He’s relentless. He’s aggressive. His armor is scarred to hell.
Toth Krag is infamous among bounty hunters. Nobody has ever seen his face and lived to tell the tale. He doesn’t fail. He doesn’t quit. And he doesn’t take prisoners. But maybe he’s getting soft. For once, he showed mercy, and no good deed goes unpunished, so now he’s tracking the deadbeats who run Volant’s Fabulous Spectacle.
She’s casual. She’s spontaneous. She never liked Earth that much anyway.
Yara Duncan is always at the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s how she wound up as the human attraction in a space circus. Frankly, it’s the best gig she’s ever had. Aliens pay to watch her eat and do puzzles, and she gets to see the galaxy free of charge. She’s enjoying the adventure, until the scariest hunter in the universe shows up. For some reason, he thinks she’s in charge, and he’s determined to drag her back to face his employers.
The third book of the Galactic Love series Renegade Love follows Toth Krag, the armored up bounty hunter of legend and the human Yara, accidental abductee along with some cows. We last saw her in a carnival show of sorts putting puzzles together. When she is the bounty on his list, Toth Krag got more than he bargained for as Yara isn’t going to be given over easily and has found a way to crack through that robotic suit exterior.
This is a true sci-fi love story. Sure the emotional coming together of Toth Krag a.k.a. Oren and Yara is a little fast. But both are lonely in ways you can really feel when reading their story. Yara, because she is one of only a few humans in space, and Oren as the Toth Krag only has a robotic unit for company. On the run together trying to find a way out of each situation of servitude they are in bonds are formed. Yara needs to pay off whatever perceived debt she has to something akin to loan sharks and Toth will need to buy out his contract if he wants to leave the guild alive. They both need a big score to be free.
The great thing about these novels is that the aliens are alien. They would have followed a different evolutionary paths and all their stuff is not the same. This makes sex different and it is explained in detail. If you can’t handle it or it isn’t an interest of yours that part is going to be uncomfortably weird. There are only a few scenes like that and they could be easily skimmable if needed. Toth is also incredibly romantic and forthcoming with words. He really has some great lines in this.
Renegade Love is the last planned book in this series. I think it is a really good ending point even though I’d be open into checking in on our friends down the road to see how they are doing. It has been a fun and educational journey to walk through this sci-fi world and meet some of the players in it.
“You are every safe place. There is no shelter for me without you, no sky that could content me. I am yours, Yara Duncan.”

This is a new to me author and series but one I know I would like Thanks
I’ve read a few other things by her and she definitely is good at making aliens, alien looking.
I’m glad you enjoyed this. I wish it was on audio. I like to read a series all in one format.
I think it will be eventually. The other two books in this series came to the audio late.
I meant to get to this one already. Love the world and how the alien really feels alien. 🙂
Yes. The aliens aren’t just human looking but in a different color. They are truly alien with very different sex organs and body types. It is a nice change up from other stuff I’ve read.
This sounds like a series that I would really like. I really need to read more from Ann Aguirre. Maybe I should finally get around to finishing the Sirantha Jax series.
That was the first series I read by her. I think I only made it to book 3 but I did like the worldbuilding. These books the romance is the highlight of the book instead of the plot. But the sci-fi of it is still really well done.
Nice review, Robin, I’m glad you’re enjoying this series.
