Mala has a gift for taking anything from irreparable and making it pristine.  Her unique talent has made her quite a bundle on Kaddaka station by putting them on the charter maps.  Mala easily tackles a job with a badly damaged Reflex ship that requires all her expertise to keep it from crashing. What she doesn’t know is that she’s being tested, and that her future partner, Isabi, is on board.  Mala has been chosen by an elite group and it will take all her self-control to resist the gorgeous Selna.  Isabi refuses to take no for an answer after all they will be working too closely together to ignore the mutual attraction.

Right on time for all the Star Trek lovers, Freak Factor is an out-of-this-world adventure story skyrocketing Viola Grace to the next tier of writing fame.  This new piece is part of the author’s new Sector Guard Series which has ties to her Champions series and Terran Times series. I particularly enjoyed the creative use of technology and the revolving list of entertaining characters.  In this delightful sci-fi romp, Mala is so accomplished, confident, and plucky, she could easily tack on an extra side gig with the X-Men—provided she didn’t bankrupt them with her uncommonly large living expense. Her romantic/working connection to Isabi and their sizzling interaction kept me glued to the pages from the time she first guides his ship into the spaceport.  Mala’s bio is stocked with lots of amazing and fascinating tidbits, so it will be a pleasure to view the main course.  Isabi has a couple of dazzling secrets under his sexy sleeve, too.

Freak Factor is a frisky frolic sprinkled with Ms. Grace’s trademark humor and charm. The ending can only be described as a teasing mixture of ‘more to come’ and downright adorably sweet and cute.  What more could you ask for?
