PRAISE FOR LINNEA SINCLAIR

“One of the most acknowledged and well-received authors in sci-fi romance today.”

—PNR Reviews

“Linnea Sinclair writes in two of my favorite genres—science fiction and romance—at the same time. She does it very well, combining the richness and inventiveness of science fiction with the great characterization of romance. The romances are wonderful, the world-building strong. If you love either genre, you’ll enjoy Sinclair.”

PRAISE FOR HOPE’S FOLLY

Nominated for the 2009
Romantic Times
Reviewers’ Choice Award

“4½ stars. Top pick! Hang on to your phasers as Sinclair blasts off on another rip-roaring space adventure. … A roller-coaster ride in the extreme!”


RT Book Reviews

“Sinclair shares her phenomenal writing talent with a well-built sci-fi world, and characters who charm their way right into the reader’s heart. … Whether you’ve read the previous books or not, you’re in for a wonderful treat that will surely leave you dreaming of life among the stars.”

—Darque Reviews

“What
I
imagine a David Weber romance might be like—a rousing military space adventure with sex thrown in, and protagonists who are way more interested in each other’s weapons than their clothes. … Between sabotage, military action, romantic tension, and some interesting jury-rigged weaponry, it’s a fraught flight, and great fun.”


Locus

“Action packed from beginning to end … I was on the edge of my seat with this one and even though I dreaded reading The End because the story would be over, it still did not make me slow down reading this book one iota! Linnea Sinclair is one author on my keeper shelf and her books are always rereads for me!”

—Fresh Fiction

“Too many authors on the romance side forget the science fiction part and too many science fiction writers simply can’t write the romance well. Sinclair blends them perfectly. … The pacing is fast, the dialogue is excellent, and the book is full of secondary characters who are so well drawn they could carry a novel on their own. Highly recommended, as are the rest of Sinclair’s books.”

—Sequential Tart

“Once again Linnea Sinclair delivers.
Hope’s Folly
is the perfect combination of an action-packed sci-fi space romp and a heart-warming romance. A keeper.”

—The Book Smugglers

“From its tongue-in-cheek title to its melding of romance and zombie-killing action, there’s little in Sinclair’s newest sci-fi romance that doesn’t surprise, grip or entertain. … Fans of romance and fantasy hunting for edgier fare can stop singing the blues.”


Publishers Weekly

“Quirky, offbeat and packed with gritty action, this blistering novel explodes out of the gate and never looks back. Counting on Sinclair to provide top-notch science fiction elaborately spiced with romance and adventure is a given, but she really aces this one! A must-read, by an author who never disappoints. 4½ stars. Top pick!”
