    1. I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance by Susan Grant. Imagine being the co-pilot of a 747, plucked out of the sky by an unknown entity. Your captain dies, leaving you in charge of 300 terrified passengers in a situation that defies all meaning: aliens have "saved" you because a rogue comet has destroyed Earth. You're being transported to a new world, forced to learn a new culture and language and ohere is a race of being who want you for slaves and are in pursuit of your "saviors".Jordan is my fa [...]

    2. After I listened toI browsed through the 'readers also enjoyed' scroll here on GR. I saw this book and I thought it looked interesting and I already had the book in my library.I liked it. Jordan is a single mother who is a 747 pilot for an airline. During a redeye from Hawaii her flight is intercepted and taken aboard a space ship. Jordan and her passengers are told that the earth has been destroyed by a comet and they are all that remains.Kao is an officer for the Alliance who is still recoveri [...]

    3. Jordan Cady is a pilot for United Airlines. While making a quick flight to Hawaii her plane is swallowed up by an unknown alien aircraft. The lead pilot has a heart-attack from the stress and dies, leaving Jordan in charge of almost 300 people that make up the crew and passengers of Flight 58. Kao Vantaar-Moray has been assigned to debrief the survivors from Earth. The alliance patrol ship rescued flight 58 right before Earth was hit by a comet. It is his job to help the last remaining survivors [...]

    4. Another awesome read from my good friend Susie! This one follows Jordan Cady, co-pilot aboard United Airlines Flight 58. While on route from Honololu to San Francisco, the flight is swallowed up by a bizarre vessel, despite Jordan and the captain's attempts to evade it. The captain dies of a heart attack shortly after and suddenly Jordan becomes captain. What Jordan and the crew and passengers of United 58 go on to discover is that they have been rescued by the starship Savior after Earth was de [...]

    5. On a routine flight from Honolulu to San Francisco, United 58 with just under 300 passengers and crew disappears from the radar. Copilot Jordan Cady suddenly becomes Captain when they are sucked into the interior of an enormous space ship and the Captain suffers a heart attack. They are told that they have been rescued just as Earth is being hit by a massive broken up comet and destroyed. Kao Vantaar-Moray is put in charge of interfacing with the earthlings, who as refugees need to learn the 'ke [...]

    6. I'm going to give this book 3.5 stars. Slow beginning (1/3 of book) and then it finally started getting better and the ending was very romantic. Jordan's a pilot on her way to a stop in Hawaii when her plane is abducted by aliens. The captain dies of a heart attack and now she's in charge in a plane full of people. At first they think terroists have the plane and then learn what they were really abducted for. Kao is the adopted son of the spaceship's captain who is put in charge of calming and a [...]

    7. A történet jól indult, kezdetben izgalmas is volt, csak valahogy nem sikerült sem a történésekben, sem érzelmekben elérni egy csúcsot, inkább egyre laposabb lett. Nagyon kár, mert egészen egyedi volt a történet, iszonyat jó mellékszereplők lettek volna (ha ki vannak dolgozva), és a főszereplőkben is volt potenciál. Minden alkotóelem megvolt, csak sajnos nem sikerült belőle igazán finomat kifőzni.

    8. I'd forgotten all about this author's books and while working on them for GRs, I remember reading these a few years ago. They were neat. This one was one of my favoritesd Once A Pirate. Wonderful, action packed, romantic, feel-good romance books. PG13

    9. Another really good story that mixes science fiction and romance. Wish more authors wrote this type of story as well as this one was crafted.

    10. All in all, I liked this book. Not your traditional sci-fi love story. I loved how self-sufficient the heroine was. The author did a great job building the character naturally to fill the leadership role in desperate circumstances. I also really enjoyed that the hero (for the most part) kept out of her way and let her take the lead more often than not. Also, I loved the interesting & unexpected character-twist toward the end. The only reason I didn't give this book a five-star is because it [...]

    11. Great readThis is a great afternoon read with the right amount of aviation dialog without getting bogged down, romance without to much detail(older teens book), intrigue that keeps you guessing but not way out in cyborg space, wonderful word ans situation building. Finally just a book that takes you away from you own troubles without giving any in return. I hope you find this book as enjoyable as I did. J

    12. This was a satisfying read that would normally earn three stars from me, but I'm giving it four stars for the unusual story idea.

    13. Science Fiction Romance happens to be one of my favorite sub genres of romance, along with historical, historical paranormal and time travel. Heck, I love most romance subgenres :)But finding well written non erotic titles in this sub genre is not easy. Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind reading some fluffy erotic earthling kidnap story once in a while, but often its all sex and no story. Just like I sometimes want fluffy historicals and other times more deeper and more researched ones, I want [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance. Saved by the aliens because a comet has destroyed Earth, the crew and passenger of a Boeing 747 are being transported to a new world,that will be their new home and they have to learn a new culture, language. First they will need to get used with the idea that the Earth and their loved ones are no longer there.Jordan is the perfect heroine for me. She is scared as everyone else, confused but because she is the new captain (after the sudden death of the capta [...]

    15. Overall, a good read, but not something to get excited about. It’s more of a sci-fi story with a strong romance sub-plot than your typical romance since the emphasis remains on the plight of the humans from the airplane with the love story developing as an outgrowth from events. Sensuality rating would be 4 out of 5 for several fairly conventional love scenes. I would have liked for the ‘aliens’ to *be* more alien than they were. Pacing: Somewhat uneven; slow beginning, picks up in the mid [...]

    16. Contact by Susan GrantFirst Officer Jordan Cady of United flight 58, becomes Captian of the flight when Captian Wendt has a fatal heart attack. Believing they have been hijack she organizes crew to fight back. They have not realized that there plane has been swallowed whole by a Alien craft.Kao Moray orphaned at 3 and adopted by Starship Commander Moray. He works hard to help the nearly 300 Earthlings to adjust to their new world.All things are not as they appear, there is a plot afoot to sell t [...]

    17. Feels Like I’m Right There, so authentic-sounding and believable! Capable yet fallible heroine? Check. Scared/emotionally damaged, yet caring hero? Check. Romance takes its time? Check. Plenty of heat, but not erotic. The plot had a couple of turns, but nothing completely unexpected, as the author offered breadcrumbs :>). No let down after the initial build up. Plenty of excitement and suspense. Nicely balanced. Great ending.

    18. Good book!I enjoyed this book. I liked the heroine and I loved the hero. My only issue was that I occasionally found it to be too tedious. I skimmed a decent amount just to get to the good parts of the plot. Normally I love this authors stories but this one was just ok for me. Regardless, I still recommend the book because it truly is good brain candy.

    19. (Review written 2014)I FOUND IT.A few years ago I was wandering through the local library and came across this. I was going through a cheesy romance phase so I borrowed it and was never able to find it again.It remains to this day the best romance I have read.A fantastic blend of ramnace and science fiction.

    20. I loved this book, everything from the strength of the heroine to the enigmatic and caring hero. I loved the slow build of their relationship and how it wasn't an 'insta-love' story. It kept me thinking about it even after I had finished it and put it down. Excellent book. Will be reading again!

    21. While Grant deserves a nod for writing tough heroines (no shock there, as she's former USAF), it's difficult to take her seriously when her "futuristic" romances carry only the barest gloss of actual SF. *coughs*McCaffreydiditbetter*coughs*

    22. A wonderful book. Great story, I really liked the characters. The hero and heroine both strong and intelligent. No TSTL moments and a great epilogue. :)

    23. 3.5*I enjoyed this sci-fi romance about a female airline pilot caught up in a galactic game of espionage and traitors. Good characters and enough suspense to keep me reading late at night.
