Title: Through Uncharted Space
Author: Anna Hackett
Series: Phoenix Adventures #10
Genre: Sci-fi Action Romance
Length: Short novel
A deep-space convoy master who demands everyone follow his rules…and the stowaway scam artist who’s never met a rule she wouldn’t break.
Dare Phoenix runs his convoy with absolute control. In uncharted space, lives depend on it. When one plain, dowdy woman comes aboard, his gut tells him that something is off about her. Soon there are assassins on his ship, sabotage, and people dying, and Dare discovers his drab passenger is definitely not what she seems. Instead, he uncovers a smart-mouthed scam artist who defies him at every turn.
Dakota Jones is a survivor. Life has taught her that if you don’t grab what you want, someone else will snatch it away. Tired of having nothing, she’s stolen a map to the location of an immense lost treasure from Earth and she’s going to find it. Okay, so maybe stealing the map from a deadly terrorist group wasn’t her best decision, but now she just needs to dodge their crazy followers, hide out on the Phoenix Convoy, and find a way to decode the map. Easy, right? Wrong. As soon as she sets eyes on the sexy, in-charge Dare Phoenix, she knows she’s made a terrible mistake.
Dare and Dakota strike sparks at every turn…but with her life in danger, she reluctantly agrees to join forces with Dare to find the treasure. But every step of their adventure is dogged by danger, and the biggest threat they face is getting burned by their incendiary attraction. On this hunt, they will find themselves going beyond their depths, tested to their limits, and deep in uncharted territory.
Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think assassins, space terrorists, underwater adventures), cool offsiders (some sexy brothers) and a steamy romance (lots of sexy times between a bossy man and a smart-mouthed scam artist). This is treasure hunting sci-fi style. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

The Phoenix Clan are back and doing what they do best – running rampant through space, searching for treasure and falling in love. This time it’s Dare Phoenix, deep-space convoy master, protector of all who fall under his eye, a man thoroughly in control of his own destiny. Until Dakota Jones lands in his life, turns it upside down and leaves him reeling.
This was so much fun. Dare is a complete alpha male, but Dakota is easily his match with her strongly independent streak, somewhat questionable attitude to rules and ability to bring him to his knees in more ways than one. They both have reasons for being the way they are and neither give up control easily, but they make one helluva team once they get going.
Despite heading off beyond Galaxy’s Edge, this book bounces around some interesting new worlds, packs in plenty of adventure amongst the action and even makes a few pointed comments about patriarchy and the subjugation of women. There may have been a couple of occasions where I was surprised by a certain lack of suspicion in some instances, but on the whole this was every bit as fun as I’d expect an Anna Hackett book to be – sexy too. Dare is the most dominant hero I’ve read from this author, and I thought it worked brilliantly with the dynamic between these two. He’s in charge, up to a point, but Dakota is perfectly able to hold her own when she needs to.
Another fun, sexy space adventure from my favourite sci-fi action romance series. I can’t wait to see where they all head next!
