BDSM, Erotic Romance, Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic
On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she's captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn't prepare her for.
When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure--with a passion she's never before experienced.
Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she's giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn't part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?

THE HAND OF VENGEANCE by Renee Rose is the story of Good Samaritan doctor, Lara Simmons, who is kidnapped by rebel forces to help save their leader. The man who grabs her is known as the Hand of Vengeance and that he is.
Mixed in with some entertaining off-world locales and non-humans is a traditional story of races of people who have been subjected to slavery and abject cruelty, all in the name of wealth; of a war that has gone on for far too long where peoples are treated as nothing more than a commodity to use and abuse. And much like here today, on earth, there are still good Samaritans out there willing to cross those borders to help those in need.
However, this is most definitely an erotica story and the development of the relationship between Lara and Blade (aka Vengeance). Told from a mixed perspective (hers and his), we're given intimate details as to what they're thinking and their growing attraction to each other. *Warning, the initial "punishment" doled out by Blade comes quickly and well, they're all well done as are the oh so yummy sex scenes.
If you enjoy off-world type stories with a great pair of leads, strong attraction, scintillating sex scenes and some delicious spanking, then look no further. You won't be disappointed. In fact, you'll want to read it again. And again. And again.
