TBR Challenge: An Accidental Goddess

I read Linnea Sinclair’s An Accidental Goddess for the TBR Challenge.

(c)  2005, Bantam Spectra

Why this author?  Because I want to like her…so much.  I really enjoyed Gabriel’s Ghost and Finders Keepers, but the other Sinclair books I’ve tried haven’t really hit the spot for me.

What did I think of the cover art?  Well, the newer art (here) is much prettier than the older art (here) IMO.  I like the style of the new/reissued covers, although the posing couples aren’t my favorite thing.

Blurb:
 

Raheiran Special Forces captain Gillaine Davré has just woken up in some unknown space way station, wondering where the last three hundred years have gone. The last thing she remembers is her ship being attacked. Now it seems that while she was time-traveling, she was ordained a goddess…. Gillaine’s only hope of survival rests with dangerously seductive Admiral Mack Makarian, who suspects her of being a smuggler—or worse. But he can’t begin to imagine the full extent of it. For Gillaine is now Lady Kiasidira, holy icon to countless believers, including Mack—a man who inspires feelings in her that are far from saintly…feelings she knows are mutual. But when their flirtation is interrupted by a treacherous enemy from the past, Gillaine’s secret—and secret desires—could destroy them both….
 

What did I think of the book?  Well, it worked more as science fiction/fantasy than a romance for me.  The romance was just…too abrupt.  And the heroine lied to the hero about who/what she was for most of the book, which is a Deal Breaker for me. 

Will I read this author again?  Absolutely.  Gabriel’s Ghost is a keeper, and I’m looking forward to her Hope’s Folly.
