Meet C.I. Syn: thief, smuggler, ex-convict, surgeon, robotics expert, crackpot software hacker (a.k.a. filch), art Connoisseur, tortured soul and of course, sex fiend.
Then there is Shahara Dagan: poor, caretaker for her no-good family, poor, galactic police officer/bounty-hunter (a.k.a. Seax), poor, tortured soul, stricken with poverty.
As the story goes, he is a bad, bad boy who make million$ doing his bad, bad things; she is a poor do-gooder wanting to get some ka-chink to get her sister medical treatment, so off she goes to capture him and his bad, bad self. As is the way in romance novels, things are not what they seem (gasp!!), and though he is a bad bad boy, he has reasons to be such because of course, fate had dealt him a really bad, bad hand.
The boy rose from the ashes of despair like a phoenix from the flames and now is a much-sought-after commodity. There are starships battles and friends from the earlier novel drop in to save the day and of course the villain who-does-not stop.
On the other hand, the theme of 'What CI Stands For?' thru the book is very funny.
It was a good ride but not a keeper.

I love Kenyon, but I just don't love this series. I loved Sin, but other than that I was left empty. This book couldn't keep my attention, I kept putting it down. I felt the same way about the first book in this series. Therefoer if you liked the first one, you will probably like this one as well. As for me, I am not even reading the third one--in which I have already bought.

I had been wanting to see if there was a book out for this character and i was not disappointed in this book. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing and this book captured my interest from page one.

I'm so over this author. We know the tortured hero is a common trope for romance, but this woman goes overboard. This is the third of her novels I've read where the hero is a victim of vicious sexual assault and exploitation as a child. At least this one wasn't as graphic about it as her book "Styxx", but still. Child sexual assault is not a plot device. There are other ways to create a tortured hero.

I love all of SK's books. I prefer the Dark Hunter series, but these League books are really good too. I really like Shahara as a strong female lead character.
