Junior diplomat, Caleb Adams, is in trouble.  He has traveled through space to get to a band of elite soldiers.  He knows he has to help them clear their name and find out who is actually responsible for killing people.  His friend Daphne was killed and Caleb needs to find a way to make her killer pay.  Unfortunately, it seems he has inserted himself directly into harm’s way.  When he reaches them, the men think he is a spy.  He is now under the direct supervision of their leader, Sarhaan¾for his own protection.

Sarhaan is in charge of the gunship Vigilant.  When he finds Caleb approaching his ship, he doesn’t know what to think of him initially.  He may be attracted to the smaller man, but he has his own responsibilities he must think of.  He has to do what is best for his team of men.

Caleb doesn’t know what to do about his attraction to the large soldier, gay relations are outlawed in the Republic.  When Sarhaan entices him into a relationship, he is overjoyed.  Unfortunately, Sarhaan only wants him for sex¾doesn’t he?  Sarhaan has never felt this connection with anyone before, he can’t keep his mind¾or his hands¾off Caleb.  With a killer loose and framing Sarhaan’s team, can they find a way to survive and stay together?

Off World is a mind-blowing combination of hot sex, appealing men and intriguing mystery.  Caleb and Sarhaan are two very different men, and those differences are what make them so alluring.  I found myself rooting for them the entire time I was reading Off World.  Stephanie Vaughan has a talent for creating two amazing men, adding in a few appealing secondary characters, placing them amidst a unique futuristic setting and making it seem believable.  The emotions were so real that I couldn’t stop myself from turning the pages to see what would happen next.  Off World is a perfect example of why I love reading gay romance and why I keep coming back for more!  I loved every page, every scene and every character in Off World and I highly recommend
