About the Book:
An Amazon Best Book of 2017 and Romance Writers of America® RITA® Finalist! "Raw. Smart. Quick-witted. Mouthwatering. Just a few adjectives that describe this exquisite tale. Do not let this unforgettable story, or its incredible cast of characters, slip by you." --DARYNDA JONES, New York Times bestselling author

A rip-roarin', sexy new sci-fi romance series with the perfect balance of humor, heat, and heart. Now that Texas has seceded and the world is spiraling into chaos, good guys come in unlikely packages and love grows in the most inconvenient places...

Rogue scientist * technologically enhanced * deliciously attractive
Heron Farad should be dead. But technology has made him the man he is today. Now he heads a crew of uniquely skilled outsiders who fight to salvage what's left of humanity: art, artifacts, books, ideas -- sometimes even people. People like Mari Vallejo. 

Gun for hire * Texan rebel * always hits her mark
Mari has been lusting after her mysterious handler for months. But when a by-the-book hit goes horribly sideways, she and Heron land on the universal most wanted list. Someone set them up. Desperate and on the run, they must trust each other to survive, while hiding devastating secrets. As their explosive chemistry heats up, it's the perfect storm...

My Review:
I'm not generally much of a Sci-Fi fan, but the fact that WANTED & WIRED was a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist had me intrigued enough to want to read it.  So glad I did!

Such well-developed and fabulous characters!  Although they are partners, Mari and Heron, are an unlikely pair.  The heat between these two, however, simply had to come to light!  I mean, this was sizzling heat.  The knock-your-socks-off intense lust that leaves you breathless!  And a very creative and interesting story line to boot!

Vivien Jackson created a technologically advanced world with mech-clones, nanocritters and a whole lot of cyber awesomeness!  And action.  Lots and lots of action!  (Gosh, I just realized that I've used an awful lot of exclamation marks in this review.  Can't help it though.  The book is just too exciting!)

Highly recommend this one to anyone into Science Fiction... and even to people like me who are not into it.

My Rating:

About the Author:
Vivien Jackson writes fantastical, futuristic, down-home salacious kissery. A devoted Whovian Browncoat Sindarin Jedi gamer, she has a degree in English, which just means she's read gobs of stuff in that language. With her similarly geeky partner, children, and hairy little pets, she lives in Austin, Texas, and watches a lot of football. 

Her debut science fiction romance, WANTED AND WIRED, was a Romance Writers of America® RITA® Finalist and an Amazon Best Romance of 2017.
