Dare Phoenix runs his convoy with absolute control. In uncharted space, lives depend on it. When one plain, dowdy woman comes aboard, his gut tells him that something is off about her. Soon there are assassins on his ship, sabotage, and people dying, and Dare discovers his drab passenger is definitely not what she seems. Instead, he uncovers a smart-mouthed scam artist who defies him at every turn.
Dakota Jones is a survivor. Life has taught her that if you don't grab what you want, someone else will snatch it away. Tired of having nothing, she's stolen a map to the location of an immense lost treasure from Earth and she's going to find it. Okay, so maybe stealing the map from a deadly terrorist group wasn't her best decision, but now she just needs to dodge their crazy followers, hide out on the Phoenix Convoy, and find a way to decode the map. Easy, right? Wrong. As soon as she sets eyes on the sexy, in-charge Dare Phoenix, she knows she's made a terrible mistake.
Dare and Dakota strike sparks at every turn...but with her life in danger, she reluctantly agrees to join forces with Dare to find the treasure. But every step of their adventure is dogged by danger, and the biggest threat they face is getting burned by their incendiary attraction. On this hunt, they will find themselves going beyond their depths, tested to their limits, and deep in uncharted territory.
Dare Phoenix, convoy leader, womanizer, domineering male and all round bad ass and yet there's a soft spot in him. Dare isn't the sort to look away when the vulnerable are targeted but what if he meets someone both fragile, in danger and pig headed? Yes, the latest passenger, Dakota Jones, is a woman with a secret and trust me, she is not going to go quietly, no not no way. They can send assassins, follow her into deep space but there's absolutely no way that this time anyone is going to pull the rug out from under her feet! Dare might think he rules his ship but no way will he ever be the boss of Dakota. Two stubborn people are about to collide with reverberations that will rock their worlds!
What I like most about Ms Hackett's work is that we always get transported on an adventure and Through Uncharted Space is no different. Okay, I admit at times I might need to suspend belief but hey, it's Sci-Fi and it's fun so no complaints here. Yes, it's a little steamy but I'm a romance reader so never complain about that. The end did, however, feel a tad abrupt this time but I know full well that I will be back for more.
