reviews

STARRED REVIEW! “Edited by Hugo Award–winning author Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire) and renowned sf/fantasy anthologist Dozois (The Year’s Best Science Fiction)… This is a wonderful anthology for readers who enjoy crossing the genre lines between fantasy/sf and romance and an excellent introduction to series readers may not have previously tried. With the number of powerhouse authors and popular series represented, all public libraries should consider purchase.”
Library Journal

“With 'Courting Trouble,' Linnea Sinclair has once again delivered an intense, action filled story with complex world building and a heart-tugging romance... A science fiction "best friends" romance with a hero oh-so-in love with his heroine written by a superb storyteller...how could I not love this story?"
Kathy’s Review Corner

"A cross-genre project collecting love stories in settings from science fiction, fantasy and, inevitably, romance. Most of the authors are Big Names, and some, but not all of their stories are set in established series...[Courting Trouble]: A lot of action and adventure going on amidst layers of conspiracies... Adventures ensue, ending, of course, in romance."
—Lois Tilton, Locus Online Reviews

"'Courting Trouble' by Linnea Sinclair is the futuristic love that starts out as action packed with heroine Captain Serenity Beck of the Star of Pandea trying to avoid losing her ship to a rather unscrupulous trader named Nic Talligar. Nick is our heroine's hero so to speak as he broke her heart before. The battle at one space dock and the supporting characters make this story priceless."
Bookaholics Romance Book Club

“Linnea Sinclair writes some of the best sci/fi I've read and 'Courting Trouble' was no exception. I love Ms. Sinclair's world building and her ability to make her characters come alive.”
—Michelle’s Book Blog
