Présentation de l'éditeur

Dr. Eos Rai has spent a lifetime dedicated to her mother's dream of finding the long-lost Mona Lisa. When Eos uncovers tantalizing evidence of Star's End—the last known location of the masterpiece—she's shocked when her employer, the Galactic Institute of Historic Preservation, refuses to back her expedition. Left with no choice, Eos must trust the most notorious treasure hunter in the galaxy, a man she finds infuriating, annoying and far too tempting.

Dathan Phoenix can sniff out relics at a stellar mile. With his brothers by his side, he takes the adventures that suit him and refuses to become a lazy, bitter failure like their father. When the gorgeous Eos Rai comes looking to hire him, he knows she's trouble, but he's lured into a hunt that turns into a wild and dangerous adventure. As Eos and Dathan are pushed to their limits, they discover treasure isn't the only thing they're drawn to…but how will their desire survive when Dathan demands the Mona Lisa as his payment?

Ancient treasures from long ago Earth are hidden in a mysterious place called Star’s End. Is this a place of fantasy or does it really exist? When a nuclear disaster forces Earth inhabitants to flee for their lives, it was said they took priceless pieces of their history with them to Star’s End, where they formed their own colony. Are treasures and works of art really still in existence? Could this mean the Mona Lisa still existed? Dr. Eos Rai’s late mother believed it and she is determined to fulfill her mother’s lifelong quest. In order to do so, she must hire the infamous Phoenix brothers to take her on her journey. Legend in space, these men are daring, reckless and far more intelligent than people give them credit for.

To say that opposites attract would be an understatement as Eos and Dathan, one of the brothers butt heads at every turn, all while sensing a sexual chemistry that threatens to explode like a solar flare. Dathan is dashing, arrogant and so not Eos’ type, while Eos is all business, determined and prickly, everything that just grinds at Dathan. Too bad she was also beautiful, mysterious and intriguing, too! Will their own self-doubts keep them apart or will their chemistry burn like a supernova? Will this dangerous mission come between them, as treasures often do? More importantly, is it possible the Mona Lisa will outlast Earth?

At Star’s End by Anna Hackett sizzles with tension, action and danger, all while adding the sparks of a sometimes sweet, but always exciting budding romance. Ms. Hackett has taken us on a wonderful, fantasy journey to places unknown with a cast of characters that will make you smile, then have you in awe of their serious sides when the danger ratchets up. Dathan is tough, but there is an underlying fear that makes him extremely vulnerable. Eos is gutsy, intelligent and determined to clear her family’s good name while being lonely and insecure in her own right. Ms. Hackett’s imaginative world is like taking a trip into space!

So strap in, enjoy the heat of romance and the daring of this group of space travellers! I feel safe to say, this was an out of this world experience and a highly enjoyable,” quick escape” read that will have you back on Earth in no time!

this was a good quick and fun read. I love Dathan. the bad boy treasure hunter who has a sweet side particularly towards Eos. Loves his brothers who are awesome and has a insecurity and fear of becoming like his dad. When Eos first comes to this group, Dathan is opposed but is attracted to Eos. We see this when they go to market and he purchases something for her. Eos puts a smile on his face.

when they all finally agree, the journey comes with danger and the danger seems to find them. Along the way adventures occur and we see Dathan save Eos and show how he feels. These two have such sexual tension it's no wonder they got anything done. When they discover at star's end it is incredible because there is so many unknowns. when these two get together sparks fly. But self doubt does come into play for both and they do silly things.

A HEA does occur. I would love to know what is going on between Niklas and Darc. There is something hopefully that will be a different book. A great adventorous love story that will have you smiling.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a top-notch short sci-fi romance. At just over forty thousand words, its the perfect after-dinner mint to your stodgy work day.

Eos and Dathan, polar opposites, are cleverly juxtaposed. Their romance is fluid and gorgeous, the writing seamless, the action frenetic and the world building awesome, with tantalizing hints of contemporary earth. Which is fortunate, because there are more Phoenix Brothers to come. Hallelujah!

Hackett has a deft hand with these fast-moving shorts, apparent ever since her first release Savage Dragon, her pitch-winner with Harlequin Nocturne Bites back in '09. The Phoenix Adventures are set in the same world as Hackett's Carina Press release, Winter Fusion.

Author Provided Arc for honest review

Dr. Eos Rai needs the Phoenix brothers to help her fulfill a promise to her mother and her lifelong dream of finding Star's End. The planet said to be the home of the Terran Colony, earth inhabitants who fled during a nuclear fallout, taking with them priceless treasures including the Mona Lisa.

Dathan Phoenix will help the uptight, rule abiding Dr. Eos Rai with his brothers locate Star's End and the Mona Lisa, the one artifact his father chased but could never attain. Along the way he plans to have a little fun and find out what makes the delectable, golden skinned, tatted Dr. Eos Rai tick.

This is a study in opposites attract and if you dig a little deeper you may find you have more in common than not. The story just kept moving, I loved the pace. There was always something to look forward to or another reason to turn the page. Eos an only child, fond of rules and regulations falls for a pirate. She falls for Dathan, on the surface an irresponsible younger brother without a care in the world. When you dig deeper you find he is a guy who cares about people and has had to shoulder responsibility at a tender age. He just has the gift of sniffing out treasure. Both Eos and Dathan have guarded hearts due to their backgrounds but found they enjoyed and cared about each other. You tend to discover that quickly when fighting for your life, running from slavers; fighting gooey monsters and a hot pirate thief who may or may not be lusting after your brother (Dathan has hot brothers, sensing a series).

Straight to the Swagger: Science fiction romance and treasure hunting, so basically we get an Indiana Jones-Han Solo mash-up with a hot smart chick as the heroine.

Originally posted at That's What I'm Talking About

Dr. Eos Rai is chasing after the mythical “Star’s End,” an unknown location where a human expedition supposedly sent many of Earth’s (Terra) artistic treasures as the humans destroyed the planet hundreds of years earlier. It was her mother’s life’s ambition to find Star’s End, and Eos has picked up the cause, much to the dismay of her colleagues at the Galactic Institute for Historical Preservation. Without much hope, Eos turns to the Phoenix Brothers, a trio of known treasure hunters, for help.

The Phoenix Brothers enjoy their carefree life on Khan. They’ve made enemies in their line of work, but they feel their methods are justified since they sell the ancient Earth treasures they uncover to respectable collectors and institutions. Since Eos worked with Niklas Phoenix at the Institute, she trusts him and approaches the brothers with her plans. Yet it is Dathan, who is known for his uncanny ability to sniff out hidden treasures, that draws the attention of Eos.

Author Anna Hackett has created an interesting futuristic society in At Star’s End. Almost one hundred percent of Earth’s records were destroyed in the nuclear devastation of the Great Terran War. Humans have moved on, populating hundreds of other planets. These days, there is a lucrative market for ancient Terran artifacts, creating an immense black market, complete with unsavory characters who will stop at nothing to find a treasure. As the story unfolds, Ms. Hackett allows the reader to experience her world via detailed action scenes such as a fight in a market place and blasting out of a slave auction.

The story behind At Star’s End is enjoyable. Although the sentence structure and text is a bit more on the simplistic side, the story itself is compelling. The attraction between Eos and Dathan is palpable and sensual, but it did take some time for me to completely buy into their relationship. Each has skeletons in his/her past, which causes roadblocks along their journey. While this is to be expected, sometimes I wanted them to just open up about their issues, therefore allowing a deeper connection.

The dynamic between Eos and Dathan is a good one. They start out with preconceived notions about how the other believes and acts. I find that the slow unveiling of who the other “really is” is well-played. I like that Eos has her concerns based on her upbringing of right and wrong, but when it comes down to it, she is willing to look at the larger picture and realize what is truly important. Dathan - well, he was a little bit slower to come around, but he has a good heart and just does what he things is “best."

One thing that I really liked was how Ms. Hackett handled the conclusion of the story, both with the action and the romance. The search for Star’s End is thrilling and how the team makes sure that any discoveries don’t fall into the wrong hands is smart. I also loved the lessons both Eos and Dathan take away from their experiences - learning that the past can be a barricade to true happiness.

Overall, At Star’s End is an entertaining story. The flow of both the treasure hunting plot and the romance is fairly smooth, with a few bumps in the road, but nothing our heroes can’t overcome. The story felt simple, yet not simplistic. I found that once I started it, I didn’t want to put it down - wondering if/when the treasure hunters would find Star’s End. I liked the dynamics of the brothers - I can only imagine their eventual stories, most especially Nik… *evil grin* At Star’s End is a light, yet exciting and fun read.
