***REVIEW*** As Dreams Are Made On by Faberge Nostromo

As Dreams Are Made On by +Faberge Nostromo 
A stricken starship, a captain lost in space; a beautiful alien girl, marooned and adrift in time; the perfect robotic servant. Can he help them come together and find the space and time for love? Her starship, Prospero, out of control and hurtling toward an uncharted world, Captain Jane Ferdinand takes to the escape pods. Finding herself alone on an island, the last thing she expects to find is love.
Miranda, marooned since a baby with only her father, Jacques-Pierre, and their ultra-adaptable android servant, R.E.L, spends her time exploring her father's books and dreaming of love. And on a night when a mysterious shooting star flashes across the horizon, she finally makes full use of R.E.L.'s adaptability to explore her emerging desires—desires that, with gentle guidance from Captain Ferdinand, help her discover her awakening sexuality.
But can her dreams and their love survive when R.E.L.'s gender adaptability threatens to come between them and Captain Ferdinand uncovers the secret that her father has kept from Miranda for twenty years?

I remember Faberge's first book coming out (His Secret Dancer), and I really loved it. So when I heard he had a second book coming out, I was listening very closely for a release date :) 

As Dreams Are Made On is a short book and it didn't take me long to read it. I really enjoyed it, the story of 2 people stranded, coming together (pardon the pun :p), and falling in love.

Miranda and her father have been stranded alone on an island for many years, in fact as long as Miranda can remember. But when a stranger appears,  Miranda finds things aren't as they seem.
I liked the connection between Miranda and Captain Jane. Jane had been longing for intimacy with another female, and Miranda really wanted intimacy with anyone, as she had never met anyone but her father before. The scene with R.E.L and Miranda is totally something right for a sci-fi story, so very well done with that Mr Nostromo!

The story was nice, sweet. The sex was hot, and the characters were very likable. 

**** 4 stars

Sorry about the Capatcha! I hate it too, but too much spam lately!
