How far will Rhea go to escape Earth? Mate a big, bad (in the best ways), and occasionally green alien.

 

Rhea is leaving Earth and nothing will stop her. Not her controlling governor father, her asshole ex-fiancé, or the Department of Population who want to impregnate her. Which is why she contacts the one organization out of their reach—Celestial Mates. A questionnaire and blood sample later and Rhea is matched to a hunky, deliciously tempting, and alluring alien.

 

Erudan—once known as Teon, brother to the High Warlord of Vialea—did not register with Celestial Mates. Or rather, he’d never submitted his application. Yet a curvaceous, dark haired, green eyed human stands before him and demands they mate. Immediately. He lost his honor long ago and doesn’t deserve a female like the seductive Rhea, but that does not stop the wanting.

 

Unfortunately, others from Earth want her returned and Erudan is happy to show them the error of their ways. No one challenges a Vian warrior… and lives.

Going Green is book two in Vialea and book twenty-nine in the Celestial Mates series by Erin Tate aka Celia Kyle.

 

Each book in the Celestial Mates series can be read as a stand-alone. I picked this one up; because the blurb sounded nice and I’ve read and enjoyed other books by this author.

 

We jump right in and their is no true introduction to the series or characters. From what I picked up we continue the story that started in book one of the Vialea series and move onto the Prince who is the twin to brother to the King. Something happened in book one and now he doesn’t feel worthy of love nor does he feel he deserves a mate. As for the mate, Rhea, she’s on the run from her controlling governor father and her ex-finance which is why she signed up for the Celestial Mates. With a mate she won’t be forced to be in a loveless marriage and can find love, even if it’s not right off the bat. 

 

This story is an easy and light read. There is no real depth to any of the characters. The mating is quick. The conflict is quickly and neatly resolved. And, the world building it’s minimal. Their just wasn’t much in this story to fall for.

 

Going Green was an acceptable read, but didn’t offer much. Not my favorite by this author. 

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Reading Speculative Fiction Is A Good Way To Exercise The Brain

Fiction books focus on the unexplained, on what might be – the ones that do not yet exist in the real world but on which the author can speculate in his books. This genre usually is related to, but not limited to – science, technology, time-travel, exploring space and alien life. What makes these novels great is the kind of interest that they can create in the reader’s mind through an intriguing storyline and a sharp narrative.

The world has seen numerous fiction writers, whose literary works have been converted into movies and TV series. These kinds of stories have attracted our attention for ages because the human spirit is always eager to go beyond the realm of the known facts. We search for the unknown, the mysterious, and what evolution has in stock for us. Some readers might even find fiction to be more interesting than what’s happening in the real world. One familiar feeling among science fiction book readers is that the writer bases his writings on what is almost being achieved by scientists, believing that in due time, we will discover something fantastic.

The Truth is, space and extra-terrestrials never fail to impress both the young and adult minds. Demographics reveal the average age of science fiction fans between 29 and 43 years. Maybe that’s on the low side. It could be higher.

The study further revealed that most readers encounter their first science fiction book by the age of 15. It seems to point out the fact that science fiction becomes even more appealing as people grow up. Of all readers canvassed, about 72% said that they were proud of the fact that they love science fiction books. Many respondents in this survey summarized what the after-effects of reading an original and good quality science fiction have done to them:

1. Helped improve their skill acquisition capabilities.
2. Helped improve their puzzle-solving aptitude.
3. Helped them keep their minds open to listening to others.

Among the excellent sci-fi book writers, there are several new fiction books that become available each day and make for some superior quality reading. Getting to know more about the books, authors, and publishers is not a difficult task today as the Internet makes it easy to get information about the new book releases.
Reading fiction books opens the readers’ mind to the world.

Break My Fall (Swoon Series Book 3) by: J.H. Croix
Break My Fall (Swoon Series Book 3) - J.H. Croix

 

 

 

J.H. Croix has quickly become a one click author for me. What started months ago with a well timed freebie has become a total obsession. Her characters make it easy to get caught up in the journey. Nothing is ever simple, but you can bet your heart that there is no escaping the turbulent, beauty of a wild ride. Breaking My Fall is a Kleenex absorber. Dawson and Evie take heartbreak to the extreme as they battle their way into love. Croix tackles some serious issues like depression and grief in order to find a rainbow that could be waiting on the other side.

Busman's Honeymoon - Bingo Suggestions?
Busman's Honeymoon: Lord Peter Wimsey Series, Book 13 (MP3 Book) - Dorothy L. Sayers

Hello all you classic mystery lovers, I need some advice. I've never read any Dorothy Sayers and this audio is about to come due in my hold list. I'm considering trying to fit it into my Bingo card, either in an existing square or as a transfiguraiton spell. If any of you are familiar with it, can you make recommendations?

 

Obviously, it would fit the squares for Genre: Mystery and Amateur Sleuth and Murder Most Foul. It looks like it would fit Country House Mystery, too, and maybe Romantic Suspense? Other ideas?
