Full Description

For Voss, a Coletti Warlord, conquering the universe is a piece of cake. After all, he's a master of psychic seduction; no one can resist him when he sets his mind to it.

Zoey Jones is determined to find her mother's killer. Surrendering to a fierce Coletti warrior is the last thing on her mind. When Voss is determined to make Zoey his mate, she unleashes her own brand of whoop-ass to discourage his pursuit. When her clever disguises, skunk perfume, stun gun, and smoke bombs fail to stop the ruthless warlord, she's forced to negotiate her surrender: she would mate with him if he would help her find her mother's killer.

To Zoey's surprise, Voss agrees, and the hunt is on. Their quest to bring the villain to justice leads to unlikely alliances in an interplanetary war, and more surprisingly, to love.

“Zoey, in my office now,” my father, General Thaddeus Jones, snapped over the intercom. The general made my name sound like the foulest of cuss words. I’d been a disappointment to him since I came out of my mother’s womb female.

The general figured with his mind-control abilities and Mom’s clairvoyance, they would produce a child with off-the-charts powers. He had little use for a sickly baby who showed no signs of psychic ability. Hooyah!

He was equally unhappy with my mother, Grace, for not giving him a male heir with the traditional Jones-family powers. A botched C-section during my delivery left Mom sterile, rendering her useless to the general’s plans and the Colettis’ breeding program.

My mother actually loved the general. Why? The only reason I could come up with was daddy dearest used mind control on her. Being an ace investigative reporter, she soon discovered her not so loving husband was actively searching for her replacement. Mom divorced him when I was two and took me with her on assignments.

For fourteen years I never received a birthday or Christmas gift or even a phone call from the bastard. Once a year we got a nice letter from his attorney requesting that I be retested for psychic abilities. Father of the Year he wasn’t.

When I was sixteen, the Iraq incident triggered my psychic powers. Mom had been doing a story on the Khamisal Al-Dari, and, terrorists being terrorists, they started shooting at us infidels. When I saw Mom get hit, I totally lost it. I unleashed such a burst of power that my cousin Quinn, the head of the Siren program, felt it all the way in the Bunker, Central Command’s top-secret base.

Central Command and Coletti hunters swarmed Baghdad looking for the female responsible for taking out twelve heavily armed terrorists. Sirens’ psychic abilities make them a hot commodity and prime breeding stock. The hunters were more than a bit pissed when they couldn’t locate me.

That was about the same time the general started demanding his visitation rights. He wanted to get to “know” me. My father figured if he could prove I was a Siren, I would be his ticket to a job at Central Command. The bastard got a court order forcing me to go to his military base in Arizona for two weeks a year.

That was when I came up with the wonderful idea of a grown version of the sickly child. Along with Hollywood-quality makeup that made me appear to be on death’s watch list, I added padded clothing to give me a grotesquely deformed figure. To really piss him off, I assumed the demeanor of a timid mouse who was afraid of her own shadow.

He has this vein on his forehead that pops out whenever I’m around. I love driving him nuts.

If daddy dear had done any research on me at all, he’d know what I really look like. I’m a Scottish throwback just like my cousin Quinn. Instead of red hair and green eyes, I have black hair and silver eyes. I’m pretty sure my unique psychic powers rival or exceed Quinn’s and Kaylee’s. My shields are my biggest ace in the hole. I appear to be a normal human without any abilities at all, and I used my acting skills to become whoever I need to be.

When I was eighteen, Mom obtained information that three high-ranking military men were aiding the Tai-Kok and Rodan. These traitors were giving the Tai-Kok the codes to shut down our planetary defense systems, allowing them to swoop in and slaughter thousands of people. Seems human flesh is considered a delicacy and sold for a fortune at their version of supermarkets.

We tracked the traitors to Dallas, where I met the love of my life. Paul was a fighter pilot assigned to protect Texas. The minute I saw him, Cupid struck. Paul was a tall, handsome warrior with the cutest dimples and a terrific sense of humor. After a whirlwind romance, he proposed, and I said yes. A week later we were at the base chapel, and I was about to become Mrs. Paul Hennessy, when the warning sirens sounded, and all hell broke loose.

The western US defenses had been disabled, allowing dozens of Rodan ships to attack the base. The ground shuddered under our feet as the armory blew. Paul gave me a hard kiss and said, “I will always love you, Zoey.” With a grin, he grabbed his rifle and stepped out the door. A laser beam flashed out like a fiery snake and vaporized him.

Every nerve in my body twanged with shock and denial. No! He couldn’t be gone. He couldn’t. It wasn’t possible. Mom grabbed my arm and tried to pull me to the bunker. That was when the pain hit me, and my mental howl of fury and grief was heard all the way to the moon.

Screams of terror jerked me back to reality. I bolted from the church in my white silk wedding dress and destroyed the mind of the Rodan raider trying to disembowel a panic-stricken woman. The Rodan are ugly sonovabitches. With their scaly purple skin, they kind of remind me of a weird combination of rat and dinosaur.

Unleashing my psychic power, I slaughtered every Rodan and destroyed every one of their ships. Unfortunately, my rage also brought down the Coletti hunters. How Mom managed to smuggle me out of Dallas, I’ll never know. I was almost catatonic from overusing my powers.

It took me six weeks to get back to normal—whatever that meant. My heart had been ripped from me, and all I had left was vengeance. I would find those murdering bastards no matter how long it took.

The trail went cold for almost two years until one of the traitors got drunk at a Mexican drug lord’s hacienda and hit on his wife. Not a smart thing to do. In a desperate attempt to save his life, the snake in the grass told El Jefe, the drug lord, about his dealings with the Tai-Kok. Being a splendid fellow, El Jefe decided to join forces with the traitors. The drug lord’s supermodel wife knew Mom from an interview earlier in the year and eagerly ratted the creeps out.

Mom was in Tucson following up on the promising lead when I felt her die. My mental wail of grief had every hunter in my vicinity searching for me. I was too busy evading them and the general to do a proper investigation of my mother’s car accident for almost a week.

I soon discovered her death wasn’t an accident like everyone claimed. It was murder. Mom had gotten too close, and the traitors had silenced her. Those murderous bastards had made one fatal mistake. They thought I wasn’t a threat.

“Zoey,” the general bellowed again. “Get your ass down to my office.”

My father expected instant obedience. After Mom’s murder, he used his military might to force me to live with him. Could his sudden concern for my safety have something to do with his Central Command ambitions? Ah, yeah. The fact that I was twenty and an adult didn’t matter either. Martial law gave him the right to do pretty much anything he wanted.

The only reason my timid-mouse charade worked as well as it did was Marie. She had been Mom’s photographer and best friend. Marie and her son, Alejandro, had traveled the world with us on assignments until he turned ten. That was when her jerk of an ex-husband got custody of him, and I lost my best friend.

Marie managed to get hired as the general’s housekeeper to keep an eye on me. She was afraid I’d shoot the ass. It had been close a few times. She also kept me from doing anything too stupid.

I waited to answer my father until I was sure his vein was pulsing nicely. The moron actually thought I wrote bodice-ripping romance novels. I had even decorated my room with erotic book posters and a frilly pink heart bedspread. The joke was on him. I’m an award-winning journalist and even have my own byline with New Times Weekly.

With the information my snitch gave me, I knew one of the traitors was on the general’s base, and I wasn’t leaving until I found him. My father’s demands had worked to my benefit. The only downside was the Coletti Warlords. They were persistent buggers.

“Zoey, answer me, dammit!”

I pushed the intercom button and squeaked timidly, “I’m right in the middle of a scene. Can’t it wait, sir?”

“While the rest of the Jones clan protects Earth, you write goddamned porn. You’re such a fucking waste.”

Oh, I was more than doing my part to protect Earth, including being a Siren—anonymously, of course. I wasn’t ending up as a broodmare. With a heartbroken sob, I sniffed. “I’ll leave immediately, sir.”

“You’re not going anywhere. Comb your hair and put some makeup on, for God’s sake. You’ve got five minutes before I send Ted up.”

Ted was the general’s toady and an all-out bully. “Yes, sir.” My dad only got this way when a big-shot Coletti was visiting. Got to make a good impression, you know. The only way for my father to earn another star was to get posted to Central Command.

Dropping my shields, I scanned the area and gasped in horror. Holy shit, this Warlord’s psychic powers were off the charts. Why they kept coming to look me over was a mystery. It wasn’t like I flaunted my powers. Okay, sometimes I did, but always for a good reason. Maybe I needed to up my gross factor or give them what they were looking for.

A feral smile pulled at my mouth. Why not give them Jasmine, the general’s whore? All I had to do was boost what little psychic ability she had, and they’d be all over her. The trick was not getting caught.

I widened my scan. Where was the little slut? Oh my God, she was banging Lieutenant Golf in the men’s restroom. Talk about romantic. Wonder if the general knew?

I slid easily into her mind. Yikes, the lieutenant’s itty-bitty penis wasn’t getting the job done for her. I could hear her saying, “Oh yeah, baby. That’s it. Give it to me, big boy.”

He was going to give it to her, all right. Jasmine’s mercenary thoughts were centered on how much money she could get out of him. She wanted a new party dress.

The nasty bitch was about to get her just dues. With a few adjustments, her power level and brain waves now mimicked mine. God, I loved having psychic abilities. Too bad the fix wouldn’t last long, but the resulting fireworks would be fun to watch.

Now came the hard part. I skimmed cautiously around the scarily powerful Warlord’s mind, and waited for him to notice me.

An instant later his mind struck and bounced off my shields. “Impressive shields, female,” a deep voice announced in my head.

Shit! Shit! Shit! He had been playing possum, and I had walked right into his trap. Now all I had to do was lead him into mine. Giving a little yelp of alarm, I did what he expected any reasonable person to do when confronted with a dangerous predator. I ran.

He followed me easily. “I’ve been tracking you for some time now.

That explained why the Colettis kept coming back to the base. I had used my powers a little too much lately investigating my mother’s murder.

The Warlord commanded, “Tell me your name.

It was a good thing mind control didn’t work on me. “Jasmine.” I led him right to the horny bitch and snapped my shields down tight.

I caught a fleeting sensation of all that power ensnaring Jasmine’s mind. A tremor shook me. If he ever got inside my head, he’d own me mind, body, and soul.

My bedroom door shuddered from a heavy blow. “Zoey, open the door.”

Ted was such an ass. Using my best whiny voice I cried, “Go away. I have a migraine.”

“You think I give a fuck?”

I flinched as the warlord’s furious mind swept the house. I was impressed. It had taken him all of thirty seconds to realize he had been tricked.

“Zoey!” Ted roared.

“I need to comb my hair,” I answered in a frightened voice.

“You’ve got five minutes,” he snarled and stomped down the stairs.

If the warlord wasn’t here, I’d give Ted a good mental shove down the stairs. I went into the bathroom and pulled out my makeup. Time to ugly myself up.

Five minutes later I limped down the stairs and came to a dead stop. Even with my psychic abilities locked down tightly, I could sense another powerful Coletti warlord inside the general’s office. Thank God it wasn’t Scary Guy. I had a horrible feeling he would know who I was the minute he saw me.

An evil grin curled my mouth. Just wait until they got a sniff of my eau de dead skunk perfume. I knocked timidly on the door.

“Come in,” my father growled.

I opened the door and got my first look at the Coletti. He was a big dude, and, to my surprise, really cute, if you were into the whole merciless-predator thing. His black battle suit displayed an amazing amount of muscles, and he wore large bronze bracelets on each arm. A bronze chain was woven into one of his ebony warrior braids. He was definitely high up on the food chain.

“Jaylan, this is my daughter, Zoey.”

The warlord’s stunned gaze swept over my greasy black hair that hung in clumps around my pale, zit-covered face, and paused for a minute on the black raccoon-like circles around my eyes. He eyed my Hunchback of Notre Dame outfit in outright horror, and his nose wrinkled in disgust as my scent hit him.

It was all I could do not to giggle. Hideous didn’t even begin to describe me. There wasn’t a man or warlord alive who would want to touch me.

“It is an honor to finally meet you, Zoey.” Baring his awesome fangs in a scarily polite smile, he held out his hand diplomatically.

What a liar. Time to get the fun started. I scuttled round the desk and hid behind the general. “Please, don’t let him eat me.”

The general gagged. “My God! What is that smell?”

“My new medicine,” I squeaked, letting the tears roll. My cheap mascara would soon be running down my face in nice black streaks.

Jaylan took a step back, and his copper-colored skin turned a ghastly green color.

I had to admit the stench was pretty horrific. I might have overdone it just a tad. Thankfully the Vapor Rub up my nose kept me from hurling. I clutched the general’s jacket. “Please, sir, don’t let him hurt me.”

My father jerked away from me and vomited into the wastebasket.

The big warlord grabbed it away from the general and puked violently.

Who knew warlords had such weak stomachs?

A beep sounded in my earpiece. Marie’s signal that Ted was coming with a tray of her nice powdered-sugar-covered cakes and coffee. My plan was coming together perfectly.

Right on cue, Ted stepped in the room. I let out a bloodcurdling shriek and ran for the door.

Jaylan instinctively leaped out of my way and crashed into Ted.

He staggered off balance, desperately trying to keep the tray from falling. I stuck out my foot and tripped him.

The tray tipped over, raining cakes and coffee all over Jaylan and my father.

A stunned look on his face, Jaylan stared at the coffee running down his spiffy boots and the pieces of smashed cake decorating his battle suit.

“Dammit! You clumsy fool, look what you’ve done!” my father bellowed, trying to brush the powdered sugar off his uniform.

I shot out of the office and ran into the parking lot. God, I hadn’t had this much fun in ages, and the looks on their faces were priceless. Grinning, I headed for my car.

“Zoey!” the general shouted.

Crap. Hunching my shoulders, I turned to face him. “I’m so sorry, sir.”

“You worthless bitch, you’re determined to destroy everything I’ve worked for!” My father punched me.

My head rocked back, the world swam dizzily around me, and I hit the asphalt.

“Your mother ruined you.”

Wiping at my bleeding mouth, I fought down the urge to kick the living hell out of the jerk. Staring up at my father’s rage-contorted face, I hissed, “You hit like a girl.”

“I’m going to beat the truth out of you.” My father pulled back his foot to kick me, and I rolled frantically to the right.

A frightening Coletti battle cry sounded, and the next instant the general flew across the parking lot and slammed into a wall.

I took one look at the ferocious expression on Jaylan’s face and quickly huddled into a fetal ball. What had the general done to piss him off that much?

The warlord stalked over to my father, grabbed him around the throat, and lifted him up. “Touch her again and you die.” He shook my dad hard. “Do you understand me? Voss has claimed her.”

Say what?

His face an ominous purple, the general nodded.

“Zoey!” Marie screamed, rushing toward me in her crappy mustard-yellow maid outfit that clashed violently with her red hair. “Did that bastard hurt you, honey?”

I scrambled to my feet and ran into her outstretched arms like a scared child, and whispered in her ear, “Did you get my bag?”

“It’s stashed under the rose bush. I can’t believe he hit you,” she whispered, shooting a worried glance at Jaylan, who still held my father by the throat.

“I think Daddy just blew any chance of getting that job at Central Command.”

“What a shame.” Marie took an abrupt step backward. “Dear God! Did you use the entire bottle?”

“I guess I should have stopped with one good spray, but I wanted to make sure I grossed them out.”

“By the amount of vomit in that wastebasket, I think you succeeded.”

Immense power rippled the air around me, and the biggest, scariest warlord I’d ever seen teleported in. The guy was huge, and his battle suit fit him like a glove, emphasizing every bulging muscle. Two daggers protruded from his knee-high armored boots, and on each arm he wore a large copper bracelet. Copper chains were woven into his ebony warrior’s braids. A burn scar on the right side of his hard, chiseled face twisted his mouth into a permanent sneer.

One look at his aura of sheer menace, and I knew he was the warlord who had been chasing me.

A frightened gasp broke from Marie. “Isn’t that Voss, the Overlord’s battle commander?”

My stomach clenched. Dear God, it was him. The only logical reason for his visit was the Alliance cruiser that had blown up in Earth’s orbit a month ago. I was pretty sure the traitor I was investigating had sabotaged the spaceship, but all my research had failed to yield any hard evidence.

What had Jaylan meant when he said Voss had claimed me? We had never really met, and he didn’t know anything about me. Did he? Nah, I was probably freaking out over nothing. If he laid a hand on me, I’d kick his ass. I eyed his muscles again. Running was good too.

Marie grabbed my face and turned it toward her. “Unless you want to be a Coletti war bride, you’ll wipe that scowl off your face and start crying.”

I obediently broke into hysterical sobs.

“Better.” Marie stiffened. “Holy Mother of God, he’s headed this way.”

I took a quick peek over my shoulder. Shit! Voss’s pale amber eyes were locked on me, and I didn’t like his gotcha smile.

The Battle Commander’s baritone voice sounded in my head. “Your disguise is very effective, little one. I shall enjoy discovering what is hidden beneath it.

“Holy shit!”

“He knows,” Marie cried at the same time.

“He sure as hell does.”


“Oh yeah.” I reached into my pocket and hit my special panic button. The base alarm wailed loudly.

Voss stopped dead, shot me a suspicious look, and commanded in perfect English, “You will go to the bunkers and stay until I come for you.”

Yeah, like that was going to happen.

Loved it!! Review by Angela
Loved it! I could not put this one down. Zoey is a kick ass, spunky chick with a mouth on her that won't stop. Voss is one scary, oh so yummy guy who surprisingly is not easily ruffled.

The story is fast paced with tons of predicaments and all the suspense you could want, mixed in with some sexy stuff. This sci-fi was enough to make my little reading heart dance about with joy.

Enjoyed this ride very much, thanks!!

Awesome Review by Dar
Great value! I have reread this book many times. Waiting for the release of the next book.

If you like your entertainment to be fast paced and sassy, then you will find this book enjoyable.

I can't count the many laugh out loud moments in this book! Maybe not the best read if you are waiting at an appointment unless you don't mind some of the strange looks you get.

Looking forward to Reality Bites up next.

Home Run!!! Review by Renee
Gail Koger has hit it out of the park with Vexing Voss. I wasn't sure if it would stand up to the 2 previous books in the series, but it not only stands up, it surpasses them. The heroine is another "take no stuff from alpha males" (just like the heroines in the first two books) and makes Voss absolutely crazy. Love the snarky dialogue, the lust and love between the two and the laugh out loud humor. I can't wait for more of this series from Ms. Koger. I am in love with this series and am eagerly looking forward to many more stories. (Posted on 6/24/2014)
...The story is that good!! Terrific kick ass heroine. Great steamy sex, lots of action. As a stand alone it was fantastic. I cannot help but think that with the others it would be stupendous!! A definite must read. (Posted on 3/25/2014)
How do I love this book let me count the ways… Review by Cynthia
How do I love this book let me count the ways…

First, the title. I have a thing about titles, so many of them feel like they were computer-generated. Push three buttons and then bingo! it generates your title. Or marketing picks the title, riffing off whatever the latest bestseller is. (Think of all the 50 shades of fill in the blank you’ve run into.) I like titles that actually tie into the story. Ones that months or years down the way when I think of the story I’ll actually be able to remember the title in case I want to reread it. Vexing Voss is just such a title. Which brings me to point two: the heroine, Zoey.

Earth is in a bad way. It was discovered by an alien race that finds humans delicious. In step the Colletti warlords. They will help protect Earth but only if they are given any psychic women, and no, the women are not given a choice.

Zoey is a loose cannon and a trouble magnet. She’s got a revenge driven agenda and the last thing she wants is to be mated to a Colletti warlord. She’s a strong psychic and has skills she uses to avoid the mate hunting warlords. (She leads him on a merry dance but put your money on Voss.)

Zoey spends a lot of time vexing her mate, Voss. Sometimes on purpose, but mostly she responds to stressful situations with a bad case of motor-mouth. Which is how she manages to offend, insult, and otherwise vex, Voss, various warriors, aliens, and even the Coletti overlord himself. This leads to a lot of fun and snarky dialogue.

Voss is used to total obedience. Too bad obedience isn’t in Zoey’s vocabulary. She’s so unreasonable! All he wants to do is protect her. And she insists on calling him weird pet names like Poopsie and Snookums. Very undignified. More than that she seems to be a nexus for chaos. Which brings us to point three: the plot.

I love an action plot. And boy does this have action! It seems that Earth’s troubles are actually part of a larger galactic war so there’s ample space for fighting, daring rescues, explosions, space battles, betrayals, torture and assorted mayhem. Fair warning: this is not a book to start when your in-laws are coming to dinner, you’re baking cookies, or you have to pick up the children at school. You will not be able to put it down. Which brings me to the last point: characterization and world building.

The author has a talent for providing a complex setting without requiring a four year degree in the sciences. Her aliens are quirky but their characters are clearly drawn. Zoey cuts a swath through them all, making friends and destroying enemies with equal verve.

The bottom line? It’s a great book and a fun read. It’s the third in the Colletti warlord series but stands well on its own. Sadly, books 1 and 2 are currently out of print. According to the author, she plans to re-release in the future. I for one plan on buying them both as well as the sequel she currently has in production.

Fast Paced Fun Story Review by Kim
This is a high energy, fast paced book. Zoey is a kick-ass, take no prisoners kinda gal. You will find yourself laughing out loud. Reminds me of Shelly Laurenston or Danna Marie Bell, which is high praise! I will definitely be reading more from this author. The only thing I could have asked for was a little more action between Zoey and her Coletti Warlord, Voss. (Posted on 11/18/2013)
Mouthy heroine with histrionic flair Review by Maritzabella
Funny and hot, with great dialog and fast-paced action delivered by a mouthy heroine with histrionic flair. It’s the kind of book you can’t stop reading. I loved it and am looking out for more from Gail Kroger. Zoey Jones is a feisty psychic on a futuristic Earth invaded by the alien Tai-Kok. Seeking mates due to the effect of their own conflict with the flesh-eating aliens, the space-faring Coletti Warlords come across the situation and take over. Not wanting to be coerced into mating just because she has the psychic ability the warlords want, Zoey uses her acting and mental talents to evade everyone from her bullying father to warlord scouts, staying free so she can find the murderers of her journalist mother and try to prevent their continued betrayal of Earth’s people to the Tai-Kok. She wasn’t prepared for Voss, the warlord who has been tracking her for longer than she knows, for his highly-charged mental sexual stroking and his alpha bossiness. Not that she was going to let him get away with it. Not too much, anyway. Especially when he helps her investigate Earth’s betrayers and she finds herself starting to rely on their growing bond.

Laugh out loud funny Review by Bookgardener
This book was extremely funny. I would recommend it to anyone that wants a good laugh. I stayed up all night reading it, when I really shouldn't have and I paid for it the next day but it was totally worth it. I can't wait for the next book! (Posted on 11/5/2013)
Worth the money! Review by Cyn
I read a lot. My family would say that is a huge understatement. I have over 1800 books on my kindle and another 1500 on my nook. That doesn't include all my paperbacks. I rarely spend more than $6.00 on an ebook. If I am going to spend that much I normally get the paperback version. Vexing Voss doesn't come in paperback so I didn't have a choice. I loved the sample so much I purchased the book. It was well worth the money. My husband kept giving me strange looks as I sat laughing while I read it. Zoey is all sass and fire. Voss is determined and strong. The dialogue is witty. The action was laugh out loud funny. Gail Koger is going onto my favorite authors list. (Posted on 10/23/2013)
A quirky hilarious seduction Review by Aubrey
Gail - love the continuation of this series. You take your readers on a roller coaster ride which is full of twist and turns. The scenes are dynamic and full of action. This is an intense and passionate read that will keep you turning page after page, you just have to know what Zoey will do next in her campaign to get Voss to drop his pursuit. If you are looking to laugh out loud then this is a book you should try.

Rip-Roaring Good Time Review by Annie
Have never read anything by this author, but the books premise sounded extremely interesting. So glad I decided to take a chance ... read it in one sitting and spent so much time laughing at the situations and the heroine's continual snarky comments. Good guys, bad guys, good aliens, bad aliens and a rip-roaring good time throughout. (Posted on 10/15/2013)
Re-visiting the Jones and their Coletti Warlords, the magic's still there. Review by ElizabethN
Four years ago, Kaylee Jones left earth, met her Coletti warlord and the universe hasn’t been the same. By the end of Just My Luck, it looked like Voss might have a Jones family member in his future. Unfortunately, for various reasons, Voss had to wait awhile for his story. Now the wait is over!

Zoey Jones may not be as much of a trouble magnet as her cousin Kaylee but it’s close. She uses a lot of ingenuity to try to stay ahead of the Coletti who are hunting mates. Voss has years of experience as an interstellar warlord and isn’t afraid to be ruthless to accomplish his goal of capturing Zoey. Keeping her safe and out of trouble might require more work on both their parts.

Vexing Voss is relatively stand-alone, reading the previous two Coletti stories adds some depth but is not essential to understand the major players and the action. However, characters from the two earlier books do make brief appearances, although Zoey would have probably liked a bit less interaction with Zarek, the Coletti Overlord.

Nonstop action, over the top plot, tongue in cheek dialogue and scenes, snarky heroine, alpha hero, unique sidekicks – all of the signature components of a Gail Koger story are there, just polished by her continued writing experiences of the last several years.

A really good read Review by SharonML
If you are looking for a fun, good, sexy read that has a great storyline and a great heroine, this is it. Even though it can be read as a stand alone story. I endorse you read the series. Great kick-ass female heroes who can and do stand up to their overbearing heroes. And if you are into scifi, this will definitely fill your science fiction fix. (Posted on 10/10/2013)
growly alpha Review by Despina
Action, romance, sexy growly alpha males, kick-ass psychic h, what's not to love. Vexing Voss is a keeper if your like me and you love a good sci-fi romance, this is one of those you are happy you bought. I found myself smiling as I read this book (I love when that happens) I love it when a book like this one has a great story, (alternate worlds but you don't need a dictionary to keep it all straight)and the H and h don't get lost in the world building instead, they are the story. I can't wait to read Gail Koger's other books.

Another up all night read. Review by Amanda
Vexing Voss is book 3 of the Coletti warlords series. I have read all 3 books in this series and eagerly await book 4.

If you like kick-but sarcastic leading ladies, Warlords who think they are in charge, wonderful sex scenes and action. Read this book. Just be prepared to stay up late to finish it!

Loved it!!! Review by Susan
Great! I've been following Gail Koger's books since the beginning. Vexing Voss is another great installment in the Coletti Warlords saga. I have been waiting with anticipation since he last book The Warlord's Comeuppance. Her writing is fast paced and funny with the interplay between the characters spicy and very entertaining. Now I have to wait impatiently for the next installment Reality Bites. (Posted on 9/27/2013)
Wonderful, Funny, Action Packed Romp! Review by Margaret
Ms. Koger has created a unique, amazing world full of fantastic characters you can't help but fall in love with. The plot is tight and full of both action and lots of steam, and the relationship between the hero and heroine is both sweet and uproariously funny! Just one word of warning - You'll be totally hooked on her books if you read one - just like potato chips one is NEVER enough! I can't wait for the next title in the series to come out.

I have been following Mz Koger's writing career for a while and have been anxiously awaiting the release of Vexing Voss. WOWEE! While this can be read as a stand alone need to read the others to know more about the characters in the colletti series. Vox was amazing. His character really suited Zoey. Zoey's antics are hilarious! Trouble has a way of finding her! I loved Zoey, i couldnt help but cheer for her. The chemistry was great, but i felt the sex scenes could have been a bit more steamy. The first one was like really really quick, over before it started but i think that was part of the story. I loved the new characters introduced but i didnt see a new female/male character that would develop this series more. I found myself looking for Woo, which i felt was in important part to the book as he was mention in the past book. I also would have liked to see more in the ending...with the ceremony about to happen, perhaps that is a suggestion there is another book coming *hopeful look*. (Posted on 9/26/2013)
Funny, snarky heroine, gotta love it! Review by Sandra
Vexing Voss is #3 in the Coletti Warlords series, and the first published by Loose Id. This book still has the over-the-top great action, humour and oddball alien characters as the previous two books, just with added smoothness due to better editing.

Our heroine is Zoey Jones, cousin of Kaylee Jones from book #1 Just My Luck and the hero is Voss, the Overlord's Battle Commander. Zarek the Overlord is the hero of book #2 The Warlord's Comeuppance and pops in occasionally to spice things up.

There is a Galactic War going on between Earth, the Colettis', the Alliance and their allies against the Tai-Kok and Rodan. The reason being that the Tai-Kok and Rodan like to eat us, we taste good. So there is lots of scope for mayhem and destruction and lots of explosions.

And why do aliens always want to tattoo the Jones girls?

I must say though, I missed Woo, the baby Tabor that attached itself to Voss in the first book.

Looking forward to #4 Reality Bites, especially after the last line of this one.

A have to read Review by Robby
You will never want to put it down. The characters come alive. The female lead is quirky. She has all the warlords shaken there heads at her antics. Voss is an extremely macho warlord but has a soft side for his mate. I've read all the books in this series and hope there are more coming. Highly entertaining. (Posted on 9/24/2013)
