Valhalla Rising by Clive Cussler

Valhalla Rising is another Dirk Pitt Adventure by Clive Cussler. He is one of my favorite action adventure novel writers. I like this Dirk Pitt series because those are always about historical incidents, treasure hunting as well as action. You have have all in one when you read Dirk Pitt novels. Clive Cussler sometimes use him self as a side character without harming the story line.

Pitt’s NUMA survey ship happens to be in the vicinity when the world’s newest and biggest cruise ship founders and sinks, giving Pitt the chance to stage the daring rescue of nearly 2,000 passengers. Among those who perish is a famous scientist whose revolutionary engines powered the ship to her watery grave; while Pitt is unable to save Dr. Egan, he rescues his beautiful daughter Kelly from the sea, and later from a murder attempt aboard the rescue vessel.
Pitt and his trusty pal Al Giordino track the sinking to the boardroom door of a multinational conglomerate called Cerberus, whose evil CEO has designs on the world’s oil supply. He’ll do anything to keep Egan’s advanced engines and secret formula for frictionless oil off the market–even sabotage another vessel, this time a luxury passenger submarine. By the time our heroes have foiled the mastermind’s nefarious plots, they’ve also uncovered the existence of a working submarine nearly a century before one actually existed–irrefutable proof of a Viking landing on the Hudson River–and the remains of the British sailor who inspired Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo.

I enjoyed reading Valhalla Rising and I don’t know what others say but it’s a brilliantly written novel. Anyone who love sea/treasure type action adventure novels would enjoy it. Also Dirk Pitt series is something you can enjoy reading. Maybe plot is not believable and this is not one of the greatest action adventure novels but still Valhalla Rising is not bad book which make you bored.

Celestial Passions – Brianna by Judy Mays

Celestial Passions – Brianna By Judy Mays is the first book  in the Celestial Passions series. This is the first book of Judy Mays that I’ve read. Judy Mays writes wonderful Erotica stories.

Brianna did what any other decent human being would do-rescue a pair of aliens her boss was about to dissect, and get them back to their space ship. In the process, she was captured by an alien scientist and became a experiment herself-a sexual experiment. Captain Alalakan don al’ Chardadon was not about to let Dr. Rodak don al’ Bakom conduct his ridiculous sexual experiments on an inhabitant from a newly discovered world. Even if it meant he had to marry the Earth woman to protect her. Marriages were easily dissolved on his planet, and this alien was very beautiful. Besides, he wanted her-in his bed, on the floor, against the wall, or anywhere else he could think of. Brianna had to choose-marry the captain or try to find another way to escape Bakom. Easy choice. Even though he was an alien, Char was the most desirable man she’d ever met. So, Brianna finds herself hurtling through space married to a very sexy alien-with a very flexible tail-from a planet where hedonism is the norm and there are three sexes: male, female, and hermaphrodite. But Bakom wanted Brianna too, and is willing to do anything to get her back.

Judy Mays has created the best characters in Celestial Passions – Brianna. Brianna is strong and sassy and Char is the perfect with all his sensuality and power. The passion between Char and Brianna very sensual and even a bit spicy and the things that alien can do with his tail are simply amazing and highly arousing.One particular character that i liked most is Char’s cousin Ban who is especially intriguing and I hope that there is a story about him in a future book. I enjoyed this book and hope that the other books in this series are just as enjoyable.
