Publisher's Summary

Fighting for love, honor, and freedom on the galaxy’s lawless outer rim....

When several women from Earth find themselves abducted from a space station by alien slavers, life becomes a battle for survival on a dangerous desert planet.

Includes:

Gladiator: When Earth space marine Harper Adams finds herself abducted by alien slavers, her life turns into a battle for survival. Dumped into an arena on a desert planet on the outer rim, she finds herself face to face with a big, tattooed alien gladiator...the champion of the Kor Magna Arena.

Warrior: It was supposed to be an exciting job on a space station, but instead, scientist Dr. Regan Forrest finds herself fighting for her life when she’s kidnapped by alien slavers. Far from Earth and forced into a violent gladiatorial arena on the outer rim, she finds herself swept into the brawny arms of a big, wild alien gladiator.

Hero: Raised from birth to be a soldier, Kace Tameron is a disciplined, military-trained gladiator. He is on contract to the Kor Magna Arena to hone his fighting skills on the blood-soaked arena sand and then return to the military. He lives for one thing: To protect his planet, and on his world, love is forbidden. But then he collides with a feisty redhead from Earth who threatens to shatter his legendary control.

Excellent

This boxset of Galactic Gladiators contains book one Gladiator, book two Warrior and book three Hero. The first book is about space marine Harper Adams and Raiden Tiago they meet after Harper is abducted off a space station and finds herself in the Kor Magna Arena. She ends up with Raiden in the House Of Galen and sparks fly between the two and what follows is a steamy romance between a fierce space marine and a gritty, alpha male gladiator. The second book is about scientist Dr. Regan Forrest and Sirrush warrior Thorin and the sparks fly yet again only this time Thorin fights the attraction believing he is not good enough for Regan and breaking her heart in the process but, when she needs his help he will be there and maybe bringing about a chance for them. The third book is about Kace Tameron a disciplined, military-trained gladiator raised from birth to be a soldier and Rory Fraser an engineer on a space station circling Jupiter until she was kidnapped along with the others. The attraction between the two is undeniable but, Kace will have to fight his rigid control on his emotions if he is to have Rory if they can overcome this the results could be explosive and there is a surprise at the end of this book. These sci fi romances contain a lot of action (think wild gladiatorial fights and daring rescues), tough gladiators (the warriors of the House of Galen) and a steamy romance an undeniably addictive combination and I am now off to get the fourth book.

shut the front door!!!!

OMG! Anna Hackett your the bomb. I've been listening to military action romances but I like sci-fi and thought I'll give these a go seeing as I liked Ms Hackett's team 52.
book 1: awesome and a great start. heroes are just as they say they are gladiators, so you gotta like alphas and brute muscle or you'll screw your nose up.
heroines full of sass and skill is next in order, though the skill varies so it keeps you Intrigued as to what is coming in the next book.
after all same bunch of alphas, same human friends, same setting, same enemy...what is Ms Hackett going to come up with next.
book 2: a sci fi take on beauty and the beast....great story, suspense and introduction to more characters.
book 3: heroine is awesome, gladiator is a 'pretty boy' but story had to delve deep to get this one right, perhaps a bit light considering the heroes ancestry but, hey, it's sci-fi, I'll forge on. again great intro to new characters. and a nice little twist.....
the other books are rather short in hours for the dollars I'd pay but I can't resist....I'm hanging out for galens story but by crickey it's the last bloody book!!
well done Anna Hackett, awesome stories, imagination,descriptive writing and steam!!
THE narrator....Ms Leheny....you are amazing. I love your tone and inflections not to mention your different voices for these characters. after this you have ruined me for other solo narrator's. I have to find other books and hopefully they are good enough for me to buy and listen to you.

Good Start

Admittedly, I like Ms Hackett’s other sci-fi series a little bit better, she does not disappoint with this series so far. Generally, I prefer more storyline and fewer sex scenes but that would be my only complaint. Having said that, however, there is a good storyline with this series. Ms. Leheny, as usual, did an excellent job with the narration. She doesn’t read the story, she performs it.

Great fun

Anna Hackett has an amazing way of writing that makes it really easy to suspend disbelief for sci-fi romance. All her stories have women who can be vulnerable but are strong in different ways. There a believable level of “oh crap” and then there’s a slow escalation of moving forward that’s realistic. The pace is fast, the fights are sometimes even fun and the men as awesome in very different ways. There are sex scenes but very timely. All in all, I’d read anything she writes!

Fantastic story line, interesting characters.

Anna Hackett creates a fascinating world. Her characters are developed well, and truly engaging. The environment is easy to imagine, with controversy and developments that flow through to each book. Romance and Heroism.

great start

The first three books are great start that are definitely gonna suck you in. Hi if this is your genre of books as it is mine I doubt you’ll make it through all three before you’re buying the fourth book. It is candy for the years the performance was excellent as was the writing in my opinion. Enjoy them

Strong women, alpha warriors, so much fun

I first read the books and then when this set came up for sale, I had to get it. And it was great reliving the stories via audiobook. The women are all strong- whether of body or mind (in all cases, both) but the point is that they contribute to the relationship and although they are "saved" by the gladiators after being abducted from a space station near earth, they provide a lot of support and strength through the relationships. The books are a bit formulaic in that the hero and heroine find themselves in a quandary they need to get out of but there is so much action I don't mind.

Vivienne Leheny does a great job with the narration and playing multiple characters. I enjoyed her telling of the story.

Good

BOOK 1 GLADIATOR REVIEW........
I'm a big fan of Ms. Hackett's books and this book is just another in her line of great stories. I loved it. Great characters, action, adventure and romance all rolled up into a wonderful new series. I highly recommend this and all of Ms. Hackett's books.

BOOK 2 WARRIOR REVIEW........
Love this series. Love the characters and the stories. These are the coolest characters I've read in a long time. I love the Gladiators. Thorin sounds strong and sexy yummy. I am so looking forward to more in this series.

BOOK 3 HERO REVIEW...........
This series is really good. I love the Gladiators. It's great how strong and tough they are yet so tender and caring also. Great characters. I highly recommend this book and series.

NARRATOR REVIEW......
The narrator did a god job with the characters. Some of the voices could've used tweaked just a little though.

Ok stories

The stories are ok. The heroines all have TSTL moments which is annoying. I didn’t really get into any of the stories but they were ok enough to continue
