HUS'ABARON: The Warlord's Reluctant Bride (Sky Protectors Book 2) by Clara Hart Review
Alien Romance: HUS'ABARON: The Warlord's Reluctant Bride (Sky Protectors Book 2) - Clara Hart

His warriors want her dead, the Council wants her dead, in fact, his entire planet wants this uninvited visitor dead for good…

He turns to the rest of his men. They all await his command, and why wouldn't they? He is not just Abaron, not even H'Abaron. He is Hus'Abaron, he is the High Hador, the Great Hunter, Lord of Hunters, and he answers only to the Council, and sometimes not even to them.

Yet Hus'Abaron doesn’t understand why he would stop at nothing to protect this earthling and claim her as his bride.

 

 

Review

 

Sigh. This book had a lot of promise but fell flat. Hard.

 

The writing was actually a nice mix of show and tell with good dialogue and smart main characters.  The plot of a science fiction romance staple of stranded on a planet meet a new culture but I love that. 

 

A fated mate romance, yes, but not insta love on the part of the heroine. The heroine is a linguist anthropologist and we get to actually see her be a genius (as opposed to being told how intelligent a character is with no evidence at all) and interpret  the world through these lenses. Awesome! 

 

The hero is reasonable and interesting. 

 

So, what happened. Oh the strangest of typos everywhere. It feels like scanning errors. The cover doesn't look anything like the hero is suppose to look. 

 

But mainly, the book just gets to a certain point in the romance, they are together, and it quits. The world building ends and there is really so much story to go but it runs out of stream. Sad and frustrated.

Govern by Viola Grace Review
Govern - Viola Grace

A woman, with a foul temper and her own spaceship, ends up an escort for a stunned ambassador. Her perfect mate.

Leo runs her ship with precision and an attitude shaped by pain. Gathering an ambassador in stasis, she is surprised to find his ability to match her innermost desires, and he is surprised to find that she wants him in his own form and not the one she craves.

Ambassador Wikkio is a Beholder. Born to a race that can change to match any other species right down to venom or scales, he is an ideal representative for races who are skittish around strangers. Meeting Govern surprises him. He had not thought to meet the woman of his dreams when he woke from cold sleep and never had he imaged that he would enjoy his woman sharpening her wit on his hide.

The Gold Fairy brought them together, and now, she is determined to keep them that way.

 

Review

 

 

Yea! Such a great cranky heroine (she has good reason) with a cool shapeshifting hero.

 

This heroine really needs and deserves love so this romance is particularly compelling.

 

We also get a ship with a mind of her own. Fun!

Knell (Terran Times Second Wave Book 5) ... Viola Grace Review
Knell (Terran Times Second Wave Book 5) - Viola Grace

Hearing the future isn’t as useless as Dot thinks, but she finds herself in the arms of a Guardian who wants her here and now.

Dot has spent nearly half her life in a private home for those who have trouble with reality. Finding out that her talent for hearing the future is actually useful, she agrees to leave her residence to find a place that she has dreamed of. A world where her talent can be put to use.

Loxin has dreamed of the woman his matchmaker told him about but finding her applying to be an Oracle on his base surprises him. No one told him the woman he was destined for could sense the future, but then, no one outside his family and the destiny painter on Yacaro had known about her.

Together, they will fulfill each other’s needs and protect a world constantly under siege…with a little help from the other Guardians.

 

Review

 

A lovely short Science Fiction Romance where the heroine comes into her own and the hero is steadfast.

Zadri (Dragons of Preor, #5) by Erin Tate/Celia Kyle
Zadri (Scifi Alien Weredragon Romance) (Dragons of Preor Book 5) - Celia Kyle,Erin Tate

Delaney Cole found her mate among the Preor only to watch him die—through his own eyes thanks to the Knowing. Now, what’s she supposed to do when she discovers that her second mate is the male who’d killed her first? It doesn’t matter that he’s gorgeous, that his peach scales invite her touch, and his thick muscles make her fingers tingle with the need to caress him. She shouldn’t want such a violent, deadly male, but… she does.

Zadri was born a son of Syh, orphaned and unwanted, and he never imagined actually having a mate. Yet, Delaney is his. Yes, he was the one to rip out her first mate’s throat, but now that he has experienced the Knowing with her, he will not let her go. Her lush curves, inner strength, and unborn young belong to him—wholly and until he takes his final flight.

When others attempt to rip her from his life, he will explain the gravity of their error. Slowly. Painfully. He only hopes he can reach her before they escape.

 

 

Review

 

I enjoy this series and this book is a very good addition. There is a nice build to the romance.

 

The hero is a sweetie. The heroine's back story is sad so it is especially lovely to see her get a happily ever after.

 

We get lots of couple time. Fun!
