Publisher's Blurb

On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she's captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn't prepare her for.

When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure--with a passion she's never before experienced.

Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she's giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn't part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?

Publishers Note: This story contains spanking and explicit sex scenes. If such subject matter offends, do not buy this book.


This is my first time reading author Renee Rose's work and I love this world she has built in The Hand of Vengeance. There is action, adventure, and lots of hot love that kept me turning the pages. I loved the character of Lara. To me she is a perfect heroine. She is smart, feisty, and sometimes gets herself into hot water. She always manages to do it with love and passion. Blade he is a hero that had my heart from page one. He has some flaws. He is dominate, bold, and very closed off at first. Once Lara manages to get into his heart though we find a passionate man who loves with his entire heart and soul. He is a warrior with a beautiful soul. Honorable and loyal.
I liked how these two meshed together. Lara at first is a driven surgeon, all of her passionate energies are focused there but with Blade she has another outlet. She finds in herself a submission she didn't even know she had. I liked that very much.
There is one scene I felt might be a bit much for a tender hearted reader. It had to do with caning. That scene is really emotionally drawn out. Well done but I can see it being too much for some readers. Over all this a great book with lots of spanking, and love. I would love to see more in this world in the future I hope Ms. Rose visits it again.
