About L.V. Lloyd

After thirty years of working with the unemployed, coping with threats, tears and broken lives (and these were only from fellow staff), LV Lloyd decided it was time to make her escape. And what better place to go than the world of m/m romance? She started writing Dangerous Tension, her first ebook, years ago, but put it aside due to work and family commitments.
In 2012, she dusted off the foolscap pages stored under her bed, finished the story and turned it into a book. Since then, she has written six more ebooks in the Aurigan Space Saga series, and numerous short stories. Pirate is the sixth book in the series.
LV Lloyd lives in Adelaide, Australia, with her family and two cats. In her spare time she enjoys fishing and visiting the many local wineries.

Reviews of Dangerous Tension by L.V. Lloyd

Railwayworker reviewed on Sep. 24, 2014

Dangerous Tension is a very well-written book. The main characters are all very believable and makes me cry and laugh with them. The main subject - discrimination regarding sexuality - is treated with respect and insight. It's also a skilled sci-fi that pays attention to detail.

All in all, it's a book well worth reading, not only once, but as something you can revisit every now and then.

Being close together in a tin can in outer space can be devastating. Adding up more tensions can lead to a catastrophe.

Being gay in a tin can full of straight testosterone can be the initiator of said catastrophe - or it can be the reason to discriminate somebody because of his sexuality.

Dangerous tension is really doing a good job: It's a plea for acceptance of something what shouldn't need acceptance.

I've read a few of the books in this series already. Although this one does concern the relationship of a gay and straight man, I felt the story gave another dimension to Aurigan space series.
It was written nicely and easy to read.

It started out interesting, but...
If you expect an sf-novel, you are going to be disappointed. It doesn't have an sf-plot at all. It's set on a starship, but that's unimportant, could be today.
Secondly, the characters and their motivations are totally and completely unbelievable. The author wanted to force a romance between a gay and a straight man, and that's what she/he did. No real plot sourrounding the "romance".
Sorry, I really wanted to like this.

Not a straightforward romance...

Of course, I didn't expect a straightforward shipboard romance - and not just because the couple in question aren't straight, either. L V Lloyd isn't one to write a standard plot without twisting it at least a little.

Funny in places, sweet in others...lovely light reading for sure. I would say it's more romance than science fiction, as it's easy to get lost in the story and forget it takes place on a space ship.

I admit I was disappointed it was so short - I was 80% through it before I realised it was almost over.Luckily, I already have the sequel - and I hope it's as good as this, the first book in her Aurigan Space series.

I'd love to see what the Star Trek writers would do if they saw this one...especially with Lloyd's example of just how impractical one-piece uniforms can be.
