Major Kelly Andres awakens to find Major Byron Grayson gone from the cave that has been their military base the last five months, she realizes he has disobeyed her orders. He’s gone to activate the quantum disruptor that he hopes will draw enemy fire, enabling the Provisional Army to attack the enemy armada. It’s a suicide mission. And Grayson knows it.

Kelly has no intention of letting Grayson die alone in the frozen wasteland that planet Onyx has become since the war began. She’s determined to find him and bring him back to base, because when they die, she wants him in her bed.

Joey’s Review:
Winter in Paradise starts out automatically defeating one of my reading complaints in short erotic novellas. I struggle to accept fast chemistry. Luckily, the author is wise and opens with a hero and heroine who are already involved. Problem solved. 

I fully admit that I’m not easily drawn into sci-fi romances, but I didn’t fight it. I enjoyed the read, and had no trouble imagining Archer’s world-building. Since this is a short read, as per usual I will not reveal story points, but I’ll refer you to the description if you want some details. If you enjoy sci-fi with the erotic flavor, you should give Winter in Paradise a whirl.

  1. Hmmm. I've read only one erotic sci-fi but it was done pretty good. It was like the plot for Aliens with sex that took place in flashbacks to increase the tension that the characters had when they were trapped wondering what to do. It was kinda cool.
