Lore’s hopes for a brighter future are crashing down around him. His reclassification as a pleasure slave sends him off-world, where he is intended to provide service to a man he has no desire to touch let alone look upon. He had hoped his master would honor their contract, but when he awakens on a ship, naked as the day he was born, he feels condemned, desperate and mad as hell.

Rhyn is a former lawman turned mercenary. He doesn’t care for the highhandedness of the people he’s contracted with, but their funds keep his ship in working order. Rhyn’s latest assignment sends him to retrieve a package hijacked by pirates. The shock of retrieving a living package surprises him less than his attraction to the cat man.

Will Rhyn fulfill his contract or is Lore too much of a temptation to return to his employers?

Rhyn has very little difficulty determining What To Do With Lore. The two men are a great match. Rhyn’s a bit salty around the edges. He has very little use for constant interaction with sentient beings, but Lore soon shows him the joys of having someone you jive with intellectually, as well as physically.

Lore is sweet and sassy. His temperament changes with his mood and he has no qualms when it comes to defending himself. The opening scene where he enters the story was inventive and memorable. Again the characters have their own internal conflicts to work through. Rhyn’s yearning for Lore seems to overshadow his desire to fulfill his obligations. Lore feels a bit selfish for wanting the love and connection he gains with Rhyn.

Jade Archer has created a wonderful introduction to the Contact series. We get an introduction to Lore’s clan and some of their differences are discussed, which intrigued me. It’s a story about injustices and by the end of this series, we should see social justice prevail. If you’re looking for new a sci-fi story with great characters, then get a copy of What To Do With Lore. A mix of action, suspense and erotic encounters is awaiting your reading pleasure.
