Kidnapped by Maria Hammarblad
Patricia sees a man standing in the middle of the road and swerves to avoid him. She wrecks her car and wakes up on an alien spaceship as a prisoner of Travis 152. Travis thinks she has some connection to rebel leader William. After a few days he realizes that she is innocent of any wrong doing, however, the Supreme Commander wants her brought in to face her. Travis is a very hard man that has always done what the Alliance wanted with no questions asked. That is until he falls under Patricia's spell. Now he only wants to make her happy and keep her safe. When he asks William to take care of her he agrees, but Patricia knows that the Alliance has captured Travis and she sets out to free him. Travis is glad to see her but angry that she has put herself in harm's way. Now they have to survive in order to get back to Earth. Patricia is the kind of character that you just have to like. She is sweet and compassionate to her captor Travis. It's not long before she falls for him. Travis does a complete 180 after he meets Patricia. He knows he has done bad things but only wants to keep her safe now. Supreme Commander Veronica is the kind of character that you just love to hate. She along with William and his crew a great minor players in the story. Slow at the beginning but then it took off and was one twist and turn after another. This book takes the reader through a wild ride in space. The author gives a glimpse into what could be there beyond the stars. Quite an enjoyable read on a lazy afternoon.
