Summary from Goodreads:

Bramble's inaugural debut is equal parts steamy interstellar romance and sci-fi adventure, perfect for fans of Firefly and Ilona Andrews.

She’s got a ramshackle spaceship, a misfit crew, and a big problem with its sexy newest member…

Temperance Reed, banished from the wealthy and dangerous Fifteen Families, just wants to keep her crew together after their feckless captain ran off with the intern. But she’s drowning in debt and revolutionary new engine technology is about to make her beloved ship obsolete.

Enter Arcadio Escajeda. Second child of the terrifying Escajeda Family, he’s the thorn in Temper’s side as they’re sent off on a scouting mission on the backwater desert planet of Herschel 2. They throw sparks every time they meet but Temper’s suspicions of his ulterior motives only serve to fuel the flames between them.

Despite volcanic eruptions, secret cultists, and deadly galactic fighters, the greatest threat on this mission may be to Temper’s heart.

Its not often I like a scifi romance, but this one worked for me.

Temperance Reed, or Temper as she is know for some pretty apparent reasons once you get to know the character, has been set on a task by some pretty powerful people. She's pretty sure there are alternative motives, but her crew needs the job. To make things worse, an unwanted hotheaded crew member has been added to the ranks.

Although there were romance elements, they were subtle and didn't get in the way of the amazing action going on in the foreground. This book was an excellent adventure that I was lost in from start to finish.
