Title: Thought Uncharted Space
Author: Anna Hackett
Series: Phoenix Adventures #8
Dare Phoenix runs his convoy with absolute control. So when he discovers a passenger acting weird, he is determined to find out why.
Dare and Dakota have an action packed treasure hunt involving a water world, a cult, and miscommunication. Dare is a controlling alpha male who is extremely protective of his family and his woman. I have liked Dare from the start so I was glad to see we finally got his book. While there are some hints of a darker time in Dare’s sexual history in this one, it doesn’t get addressed completely but clearly he has pushed the boundaries of kink some. Dare prefers control in the bedroom but his main concern is making sure his partner is enjoying himself,
Dakota is a woman who has been betrayed many times. She had a rough childhood and is determined to gain wealth and security, hence her determination to find this treasure. I liked Dakota and felt she was a great partner for Dare. They are both survivors who are determined to have better lives. Also both of them were control freaks so it was interesting seeing them battle it out at times.
Overall, this was a good couple and was action packed. It did have a lot of similarity to other of Hackett’s stories but it was still enjoyable.
Trigger warnings: references to childhood abuse; slavery of women; forced sterilization
