For two decades Corbin Leroux has worked on the planet Wish as a high-priced companion. He loves his life where physical pleasure is encouraged and has no intention of quitting it. Corbin sees his clients almost as part of his family. Not even when bounty hunter Emmanuel Leoniste comes to kill him will Corbin roll over and give up his lifestyle.

Despite being a hired killer, Emmanuel lives by a strict moral code. Killing whores is acceptable, and easy. Or it was until he met up with Corbin. Worn down by the pesky Corbin’s resolve, Emmanuel accepts Corbin's bribe and calls off the hit. But the truce might not last. Emmanuel’s mounting desires for Corbin cause problems. He refuses to allow anyone close enough to become intimate with him, especially someone like Corbin. Yet with each smile and soft kiss, Emmanuel’s emotional shield is dismantled piece by piece.


Fantasy For a Gentleman is the second book in the A Planet Called Wish series by Caitlin Ricci. I did not read the first book but I was not lost reading this one. I loved how Ms. Ricci could draw me in and make me fall in love with her characters, while adding scifi elements too. Sometimes Scifi gets me lost, but Ms. Ricci does a great job of keeping me in the story while building her world and characters that live in it.
Corbin he is a companion. He works on Wish. He loves his job. Sometimes it is sex, sometimes it is just being with someone. But he loves what he does cannot imagine doing anything else. He is a sweet caring person that needs to help others. I like his selflessness. I also like how smart and witty he is. He knows how to get what he wants without violence involved.
Emmanuel is a hired killer. When he tries to for fill a contract on Corbin he gets much more than he bargained for. Emmanuel has a strict code, basically killing is okay if it is the right people. But Corbin is more than he seems and Emmanuel cannot help but desire him. Emmanuel is a man who needs someone to care about him. He is tough, rough, and deadly but he guards his heart, that is where Corbin comes in to sneak attack and fall in love.
Over all this is a great book, I loved the twists and turns. I would really love to read more about Wish and those that live and fall in love there.
