Lolita Lopez takes you on a rollicking romp through space in this first entry in her series Skyport Virgo, As a political refugee on twenty-fourth century Earth, Laleh Sarafpour suddenly faces deportation to her hellish home planet because of a ridiculous clerical error.
She never expects a chance meeting with Pike Grayson, a deliciously sexy Spacefleet admiral, to drastically change her life. In the span of a night, Pike saves Laleh from her sadistic half-brother sent to haul her back to the nightmare of her past life and offers her a chance to save herself: From the moment Pike claps eyes on Laleh, he craves the breathtakingly exotic beauty. Pike's desire ignites the second she accepts his proposal, but her innocence in the pleasures of the flesh forces him to practice a little patience.
With the gentlest of seductions, Pike introduces Laleh to all the naughty delights to be found in a marriage bed. Ratings and Reviews 0 5 star ratings 0 reviews.

They go from a futuristic Austin Texas to a spaceship to a skyport so there wasn't much world building to do. Secondary characters were vague and uninteresting but they weren't really needed for the plot.
Unlike other reviewers, there was not too much sex- one was not beat over the head with it but let's be honest, the main reason why we read this genre is for the sex which was both sweet and loving and good and dirty. Overall, a good read read when you want to escape with something that's not thought provoking. Mar 28, T00zday rated it really liked it Shelves: Enjoyed this book a lot.
Refuge (Skyport Virgo, #1) by Lolita Lopez
Tempted to re-read it. Educated, level headed, doesn't beg, grovel or put up with much crap. Hero was enjoyable too. Although he does perform a little douchebaggery, he's very apologetic and sincerely feels like a cad afterwards. Somewhat typical male ego, but not extreme.
Sex scenes were good Hey - it's Lolita Lopez writing this but not too frequent or overdone. I kept waiting for Jai to pop out through many scenes Oct 07, C. Not much of a story but for pure smut with some romance, it was perfect. Jan 05, Erin rated it it was amazing Shelves: I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I was. I really liked it! Just the short kinky ones. So the Dragons might be a different story all together.
The only thing that really bugged me at all? Once again it was set in Houston. Rea I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I was.

Really, even in the sci fi future, all of her novels have to have Houston be a part of it? There are other cities ya know? It didn't really bother me that much, but it was just one of those slight eye rolling moments. We get it, you like Houston. I was born there. I don't even like it as much as she apparently does. I didn't dislike Lelah. The only time I didn't like him was when he basically switched personalities view spoiler [ when he yelled at Lelah in front of everyone during the crisis.
It was so out of character up to that point. Yes, that WAS the whole point of the scene, but still I'd like to see more of his story. There was no big deal made about it at all, it just was. They were happily married and that was that. One thing that amused me.. I don't know if the author did it on purpose or not, but I found connections. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the movie?
Main male character was named Pike. Pike was replaced in the TV show by Angel. Who was played by David Boreanaz. Boreanaz was one of the names that popped up in this book. Also, within the same paragraph as Boreanaz? Bones, Where the main character is Temperance Brennan. But it amused me. I am actually a bit sad that this appears to be a one off. I am going under the impression of that since it was written 5 years ago with no hint of a sequel. The Russians have taken over her writing life.
And that's okay, I like the Russians. Apr 23, Melissa rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a good book. Pike is a newly appointed admiral of a star ship for the Space Fleet. Ahh yes, a yummy guy in uniform. Pike meets the heroine Laleh how the heck do you pronounce that???

Laleh's brother was able to find her because she was placed on a deportation list due to a clerical error. Pike ends up marrying Laleh to save her from deportation bec This was a good book. Pike ends up marrying Laleh to save her from deportation because her home planet treats women horribly and he can't stand to see her sent back. Of course her brother Jai takes it as a personal insult to the family that she marries an outsider without permission.
In his culture to assuage family dishonor Laleh must be killed for her offense. So now Jai is out to get Laleh. I like that Laleh and Pike are not perfect and they take their time to develop a relationship before things really get rolling. I also like that Laleh is so smart and has her doctorate degree.

She really is an interesting character. This is the second book I have read by Lolita Lopez and I enjoyed it. My only disappointment is that there is no sequel out yet for this series. Hopefully one will be published soon. Jul 18, Hayley rated it really liked it. I really liked this - both characters have flaws but who doesn't? I like the way they have problems - Pike can be kind of a dick, but they work it out rather then letting it fester and there is no long, drawn out mis-communication or deception that occurs so much in lots of romance tales.
There's plenty of sexy times, though to be honest, they didn't do much for me. They weren't awful though. The world building was fine, would have liked a little more imagination to be honest. Space travel is comm I really liked this - both characters have flaws but who doesn't? Space travel is common place but Laleh likes orange soda and chocolate-pecan cheesecake? A universe of things to eat and drink and she still prefers orange soda and cheesecake? Seemed kind of silly to me. Also, Laleh is an alien, from a completely different planet but there's no mention of any real physical difference.
Does she just look like a human? I also had some trouble pronouncing her name in my head.
I read it as Lar-Leh - but I did wonder if it's supposed to be Leila, but if so - why the weird spelling? All in all a good read! Aug 16, 8o's rated it it was amazing Shelves: Refuge by Lolita Lopez is her first book in her Skyport Virgo series. Refuge is a futuristic romance.

The marriage of convenience turns into much more but Laleh's family is determined to destroy her happiness. I enjoyed this romance with a bit of intrigue. Laleh and Pike were likable characters. Life on the skyport was interesting to read about and the drama wasn't too over the top, very enjoyable. Jan 11, AE rated it did not like it Shelves: Laleh had a veneer of depth, but man, Pike was just like, dick words and actual dick moves.
He was no substance.

And that my friends means that I was bored to tears of the sex! It felt awkward and fake, and weird, and just no. I found myself skimming past every scene just to get to the plot. Actually now in chapter one, I wonder why I'm even skimming for the plot? Why am I finishing this book? No idea, but I will regret it. I can sense it. Nope, I definitely regret it. The cheese factory ended wi Laleh had a veneer of depth, but man, Pike was just like, dick words and actual dick moves.
The cheese factory ended with a true Harlequin ending. I guess the Grab series is like the only Lolita Lopez thing I like? And since the issues with Ellora's Cave, well, I guess I ain't getting that. Well, c'est la vie, there are more books to come. Dec 31, Timeforme rated it liked it Shelves: Laleh Sarafpour - A refugee from a planet where women are abused and considered chattel.
