Giveaway - Dark Edge of Honor by Aleksandr Voinov & Rhianon Etzweiler

Since last week's giveaway didn't have any takers (you don't know what you're missing, Alice Gaines is a fantastic writer!), there's no winner to announce today. So instead, I picked a different release from Carina to give away this week.

I already have this one on my iPad to read, because honestly, Aleksandr Voinov's earlier 2011 release, Scorpion, is one of the best books I've read this year. After I finished it, he went straight to my autobuy list, regardless of whether he's writing solo or collaborating. His prose stands out from much in the genre, rich and meaty, and he's not afraid of making less than popular choices in his stories. I love that he's willing to go to dark places, but he does so with style and finesse. If you haven't discovered him yet, you should really try something out.

But this isn't a review, since I'm working on deadline and haven't had any time to read in the past week. This is your chance to try him out on your own with his latest collaborative title from Carina.

Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state.

Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

When the hostile natives of the planet Cirokko make their move, all seems lost. Can Mike and Sergei survive when the Coalition's internal affairs division takes an interest in what happened in the dusty mountains of Zasidka Pass...?

You can read an excerpt at Carina.
