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.
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.
My name is Zoe McKinley. I have a boring life, an awful job, and a boss that throws staplers at my head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by Aliens?
Being dragged through a mirror, naked and screaming, onto an extraterrestrial ship was bad. Finding out I had been sold to a huge alien male who looks like the Devil was worse. But learning he wanted to trade me to an intergalactic petting zoo was the worst of all!
Now I'm whizzing through the galaxy with a robot butler, a trio of nib-nibs (they're like tiny green monkeys) and one huge, muscular, and very grumpy alien. The clothing they gave me shows all my lady-bits, the food-sim makes banana cream pie that tastes like sauerkraut, and Sarden, my captor, is too hot to stay mad at, even if he is a jerk.
In fact, I think I might be falling for him.
What's a girl to do? It's all in a day's work when you've been...Abducted.
I enjoyed this Alien Abduction romp with some angst, decent world building, hot sex, and a lot of fun moments.
A quick fun read.
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.
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!
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.
A lovely short Science Fiction Romance where the heroine comes into her own and the hero is steadfast.
