Alien Refuge (World of Kalquor #7) by Tracy St. John Review
Alien Refuge (Clans of Kalquor) by Tracy St. John (2013-03-12) - Tracy St. John

All Iris Jenson wants is a safe place to raise her autistic six-year-old Thomas. She thinks she’s found it on Haven, an Earther colony located within the Kalquorian Empire’s borders. Making a fresh start under the watchful eyes of Earth’s former enemy has its challenges, but it also possesses opportunities to live free of fear, something Iris hasn’t had in a long time. Love is an added surprise when Haven’s governor Dramok Ospar and his clanmates Nobek Jol and Imdiko Rivek enter the young widow's life.

Trouble is brewing on Haven Colony, however. Insurgent Earthers want to free themselves of Kalquor’s influence, and Kalquor itself is on the brink of a revolt, led by the shadowy figure known only as the Basma. Then a violent ghost from Iris’ past reappears and threatens to snatch Thomas from those who love him. Ospar’s clan races against time to save Haven from a bloody rebellion and Thomas from the grasp of a monster.

Mild BDSM, including anal play/intercourse, bondage, Dom/sub play, forced seduction, and multiple sexual partners (m/f/m/m).




With this series, the plot arc for the whole series often interferes with what are really tender (albeit erotic) love stories.


If the book was more nuanced about the villains and the cultural issues and spent more time on the romance and the cultural world building, I would likely adore this series.

I tend to like it.


The heroine has been abused and is raising her son with autism on a colony world sponsored by the Aliens Earth was at war with just a few years ago.


All the parts with the begining of education and therapy for her son and the falling in love with the child for the heroes of this book are wonderful.


The falling in love with the heroine is nice as well. Especially the parts with the clergy hero. Well, the warrior hero is pretty sweet too.


Why when these men are bisexual don't we get sexy times with each other? Sad about that in terms of really looking at a bisexual (at least for the males) poly culture.


All the other stuff is a lot of drama and I get a little sick of the zealotry and and hate and wish the series would settle into the two culture assimilating instead of the continued clash.


So, I will keep reading and enjoying and being annoyed at the same time.

Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor Review
Worth It All - Claudia Connor

She’s fighting for control. . . . Paige Roberts learned to fend for herself growing up. Now she’s doing everything possible to give her daughter, Casey, the stability she never had. But when the vivacious five-year-old decides she’s done wearing her prosthesis, Paige faces her toughest challenge yet: trusting a handsome, brooding stranger who simply wants to help.

He’s struggling to connect. . . . JT McKinney lost more than his leg in a car accident that stole his dreams of pro football. Eight years later, he's made a new life for himself far away from his old one. His business is developing cutting-edge prosthetics and he’s more than happy to turn his attention to machines instead of people. Still, he can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing.

Will they take a chance on love? . . . When JT gets the chance to help Paige’s daughter, he takes it. He never planned on the two of them tearing down his walls or teaching him to believe in himself again. Paige might not believe in happily ever afters, but JT wants more than anything to be her prince. They’ll both have to let go of the past if they want a future.





This is a sweet romance with an overworked single mom as our heroine. The hero and the heroine's daughter have both lost legs for different reasons and this brings them together though the hero already had a crush on the mom.

The hero is a biomedical engineer who patents AI and artificial limbs which is better cool. He is pretty young and suppose to be super smart. I would have loved to see more of that part of him.

The heroine is a waitress working two jobs and starting back to school with an almost five year old. The child's issues about going to school are compelling and the romance is a lovely one.

However, for me, I would have liked more on the hero in the years after his accident, college and grad school wise, and for the heroine I would have liked her to have more of sexual self (her sexual history didn't seem all that realistic or at least I would have liked that talked about and explored).

I am interested in the other books in the series

One Night with Her Bachelor (Wild Montana Nights Book 1) Kat Latham Review
One Night with Her Bachelor - Kat Latham

Bid on a date with this wounded warrior for an unforgettable night of adventure. Aim high—and bid higher!—because no one comes close to local hero Gabriel Morales.

Molly Dekker hates being the town charity case, but when her son Josh is seriously injured she has no choice. She lets her best friend organize a bachelor auction to help pay her massive bills and make Josh’s life more comfortable. She can’t bid on any of the men, but a surprise bidder gives her a gift she never expected: a date with the man who saved her son’s life—the only one she’s in danger of losing her heart to.

Former Air Force pararescueman Gabriel Morales made a career of flying to the rescue, until a tragic helicopter crash stole more than his livelihood. Being auctioned off like a slab of beef isn’t in his recovery plan. But one look, one touch and one night unlocking Molly’s pent-up passion make him realize how badly he needs to be rescued…and how badly he wants to rescue Molly right back.

Will Molly and Gabriel’s never-quit attitude have them rushing head-first into love? Or will Gabriel’s secret pain stall their relationship before it can get off the ground?





What I love about Kat Latham's heroines is the amount of sexual agency they have without being turned into the female version of a man whore which many writer's mistakenly do.


This heroine is sick of being thought of as nice and therefore asexual. She is a single mother whose son has reached an age where she can have five minutes to herself.


She goes after the guy. He is still recovering from his experiences in the war and isn't quite there yet but he adores her very quickly.


And then we have a romance which is lovely, achey, and grounded. Good stuff.
