Former joy-boy Rafe Ballard will miss living on the freighter Pendragon's Dream. Under the watchful eye of Captain Eve Marcori, Marine veteran, no one beat him. He ate well, his life was rarely in danger, and—most important by far—he spent much of his days and all the glorious nights with his beloved Taro. Unfortunately, energetic Taro wants to take on the galaxy without his sister the captain standing by, and Rafe won't be left behind. He's learned enough to get a real job so he won't be a burden. Taro is beyond capable of keeping him safe. What could go wrong? With a Marcori in the picture, lots. By the explosive end of his first job, Taro needs back-up. Rafe is all there is. Hedonist, layabout, and mooch he may be, but Rafe is also deeply in love. For Taro he'll surprise everyone—especially himself. This novel is a sequel to Knight Errant.

My disappointment in sequels of books I adored continues... Not that this wasn't good, it just couldn't compare to the masterpiece that was the first book.It was delightful to get to see Taro from the outside. And it was fascinating (for the first chapter or two) to get to see inside Rafe's head a...
I'm being generous with the stars, because it's 2.5 at most. This sequel is in Rafe's voice and while I like Rafe, and he is occasionally funny, I think the author is seriously overdoing it here. I'd like to propose a drinking game. We drink when:1. They have fade-to-black sex. This alone will put u...
Excellent m/m scifi romance continuing the story of Taro and Rafe as they leave Taro's sister's ship in order to make their own way. While Knight Errant was told from Taro's point-of-view, this one's told from Rafe's... and he's not quite as focused as Taro. :)
