Fractured Chances

Availability: Ready to download

Life as a caretaker was her fate. Crashing on an alien world and being given an ultimatum gave her something she didn’t expect, a lover who had her back. She takes a chance and is swept away. Nan has spent her life making a place for herself by taking care of those around her. Holding onto the controls of a falling shuttle with the unconscious pilot next to her, she began Life as a caretaker was her fate. Crashing on an alien world and being given an ultimatum gave her something she didn’t expect, a lover who had her back. She takes a chance and is swept away. Nan has spent her life making a place for herself by taking care of those around her. Holding onto the controls of a falling shuttle with the unconscious pilot next to her, she began to regret some of her impulses. After the asteroid, she had gathered up close to two dozen kids who had been touring the same national park that she had, and she had tried to bring them home. When their city was found to be a collapsed crater filled with water, she has to take them on the road and try and keep them alive until she can find a settlement to take them. Eventually, the call came out for the evacuation under the contract circumstances. The kids were exempt from the contract, and as caretaker, so was Nan. That exemption holds until they are on their way to the world Abix. There is a meteor shower, a wounded pilot, and Nan manages to take the controls, leaving a scar on the landscape in a restricted area. She feels bad, but when the overseer of Abix comes in through the shuttle front screen and gives her an ultimatum, she feels nervous and a weird tension. If they make it out of the restricted area in time, everything will just resume the normal plan. There is one thing about the overseer. When he sets a timeline, he cheats. She has no chance.

    Great sex scenes, but maybe too many of them for such a short story.

    An enjoyable sci-fi romance. I enjoyed this entry in the series. The heroine was impressive, and the hero was sexy and mischievous. I have been really happy that the author came back to this series after a long hiatus. A great bite sized treat of a story. The characterization was competent, and the world building was great. The plot was tight and exciting. I liked the low angst and fairly high stakes.

    Fun in Fractures The Shattered Stars series has had many different twists and turns with not only characters but plots and concepts as well. I am going to miss this series when she finishes it!

    Absolutely fantastic I love these stories. They are interesting, enthralling, with romance and sex that fits into the narrative not the other way around. And Mia is nasty. The end.

    Fractured Chances Sad that these tales have ended. I really hope that she will write more... it is a wait and see.

    I've been reading Viola Grace ( and her alter ego Zenina Masters ) for about 14 years. There are a few of her books that I didn't care for but for the most part you get a good read from her. Quite often a great read and a read again and again. Fractured Chances was a read again for me. Nan is a nurturer and as such she is also a protector. I like when the protagonist is unexpectedly feisty. Varix isn't the traditional antagonist in that he isn't evil or mean.

I noticed in many of the other reviews that the sex scenes got more mentions than the story. Hello? It's a romance, there is sex - ta da! The important part is the story and the khitans. The khitans are sort of feline with wings, horns, a purr and three - that's 3 - prehensile tails!! Khitans are very important. If you've read my reviews before, you know that there are no spoilers - they take the fun out of your first reading. This is, as always HEA.
