Intergalactic warfare has not been kind to humans. Convicted pilot Zoya Scott has the chance to avenge her family, redeem an act of desperation with that of sacrifice. She’ll end this war if she betrays the man whose touch burns through her soul, the man whose ship and crew she must destroy. The man who is her bloodmate.
Commander Galen Stark never expected the convicted pilot on his ship to be anything more than a good looking inconvenience. A small brush of their hands grips him with vicious lust, a need he can’t control. She is his bloodmate--a biological reaction burning through his veins.
Except his bloodmate carries an explosive. And Stark may have to give the order to destroy them all.
Travelling through space is a challenge at times but even more so when you are about to engage in battle with a group of vicious aliens.
Stark is the commander of the battle cruiser Victory, he and his crew have been sent to the front lines of the war against the Merc. Little does he know that the new addition to his crew will turn his life upside down in a number of ways.
Zoya Scott is on a special mission. She has been placed on the Victory to create destruction in an attempt to stop the terrible crimes that are being committed against her people. But what she finds aboard the ship is more than she bargained for.
Cold Victory is a wonderful story filled with epic space battles, passion and some steamy erotic scenes. I love the concept that Fiona Jayde creates in the story of the Bloodmate. In this version of the future there are few humans who are actually capable of breeding. The Bloodmate is a rare and fantastic bond between two people that goes almost to the cellular level. Of course its rareness also makes it something hat the government wants to research and that tosses yet another challenge into the lives of Stark and Zoya.
I would recommend Cold Victory to any Sci-Fi buff, particularly those who are into the Traveller Universe. This story has a strong Traveller feel to it and was a great read with one heck of an ending.
