Things are not going according to plans for Captain Trent Rolston and his small band of pirates. First they must battle intruders onboard their spaceship Cygnus, and then the expected bounty from the targeted luxury ship yields little profit. The only good news for Trent is the ship’s mechanic, Vince, finally surrenders to Trent’s seduction.

Rogue Wolf is an intriguing space escapade. The plot has action, along with being well paced. The main characters are imaginative, as well as interesting. Trent had a drifter childhood, moving from planet to planet with his mother. His dreams of a naval career were cut short when his intimate affair with another man was discovered. Without ties to any planet, he considers the spaceship his home. Trent is a considerate man who is loyal to his crew. He has desired Vince for a long time, yet is afraid another intimate attempt will sever their friendship bond. Vince is an honorable man living as a human, hiding his alien heritage. Vince is hunted by his own tribe who has marked him for death. Vince is aware of how Trent feels about him, although he has rejected Trent’s advances in the past rather than dishonor the memory of his deceased partner or place Trent in danger from his tribe. However, when Vince realizes his emotions are still controlled by the mating cycle, he can no longer refuse to give in to Trent and claims him for his mate, along with making a decision to stop running and face his enemy.

The intimate scenes were a little indistinct, however the overall character interaction and space battles were entraining. Violet Hilton has created an impressive and enjoyable saga.
