Reviewed on Hearts on Fire Villam Elding is totally devoted to the Imperial Empress He's following the rules and uickly climbing the chain of command Ittuluke is a monk totally devoted to the harsh goddess Akuna Taught that emotions are frivolous he will take the occasional side job to send money back to his native desert world of Siglidunn When these two very different and idealistic men come head to head on a kidnapping mission gone wrong and being deserted on an empty planet they can either kill each other or fall in love I enjoyed this debut novel and the huge disparity between these two powerful men so lost and alone together Villam has never known anything but the military and never really took the time to get into a serious relationship Luke has always relied on himself and lived under the repressive laws learned in the monastery that crippled him emotionally I found the slow build up of first trust then friendship and finally love to be wonderfully penned The story never lagged or got confusing and the sub plot of Kardiell's ferreting out just who had Villam eliminated wound perfectly around the main story taking place on the planet The only real problem that I found with this story was the total lack of passion in the sex scenes even after Luke and Villam gave everything up for each other This may have been intentional on Ms Jaydon's part or she may just need to polish up her sex scenes This is an author to watch for in the future as she matures as a writer I suggest that any fan of sci fi pick this book up and get lost in the universe
