Lindsey's Rescue (A World Beyond, #3) by Michelle Howard Review
Lindsey's Rescue: A World Beyond Book 3 - Michelle Howard

Lindsey Ferra signed up for Earth’s Singles Program wanting love, marriage and happiness. She found the first two but the third required a bit of work. Fighting aliens, running from aliens and making friends with aliens all seem to be on the agenda for the day. Her only question now is can she find her way back and will happiness be on the schedule this time.

Senate Leaders Baruk Laars and Zadal Gatar planned a marriage for business reasons. Their wife Lindsey gave them something else…love. Can these two work together to correct their mistake and will Lindsey be rescued before it’s too late?

 

Review

I have been enjoying all the books in this series but was a little worried about how dark this book would get has Lindsey had been in the hands of the slavers through out the other books.

 

We get the romance before she is taken and the contrast of the two heroes to her sunny personality is lovely. The falling in love with each hero and they with her is charming journey. The heroes do not have a sexual relationship but there is a nice adversary to friends to family arc here.

 

Lindsey shows grit in her captivity and the cast of characters widens and is a great deal of fun.

 

The who done it part could be better and more satisfying and the delay in the return a bit vexing but overall this is a good science fiction romance with fine world build, love story, and characters.

Going in
Cast in Flight (The Chronicles of Elantra) - Michelle Sagara

 #12 in a series where I devour each and every book.  Yet, ummm ...

 

I dunno.

 

The author's writing sucks me in and I am invested in these characters.

 

The last few books, however, have really seemed to not progress the story (like random episodes in a tv series, sometimes introducing whole new elements and characters that somehow main storyline doesn't continue with?).  Has been building forever up  to certain things that readers are seemingly going to keep being teased.

 

By no means abandoning the series.  I expect this one will have me reading it in one sitting as well.  But, the days of having this series on automatic pre-order are over.  I now wait closer to next one's publication date or a particular mood to read.

Good Earls Don't Lie - Michelle Willingham

Iain ‘s head was killing him. The last thing he remembered was riding toward the Penford estate. He had passed by a grove of trees then was knocked from his horse. A horrendous pain crashed over him but he did remember voices arguing and shouting. Yet he was alone now. He felt for his brothers signet ring and it was gone and no knew him here. He had never left ireland before now. He had been the invisible spear but now he was the only heir with his brother’s death. Iain intended to prove he was a man of worth and rebuild Ashton and help his people back home and help his tenants in Ireland during the potato famine.. Iain had thought things would be better here but apparently not. The thieves had stolen his horse , his ring, the few coins he had carried, his coat, his waistcoat , shirt and even Iain’s shoes. Iain was now the Earl of Ashton but would people believe him when all he head brought with him had been stolen and his coach broke down.Iain’s younger sisters were depending on him to save their estates. Also Iain was willing to offer himself in marriage in hopes of a wealthy bride. His mother and sisters had went to stay with an aunt in New York. He had little to offer but his Irish charm and a decrepit castle and his title but he had to try. Iain would do anything necessary to form an alliance with Lady Wolfcraft. She Could bring Iain into her circle in London and introduce Iain   to potential brides. Iain came to a hedge with a maze and at the end it opened to a green lawn. A lovely lady lady seated a book beside a book beside her. It was Lady Rose Thornton and she noticed a man in her garden. Rose had taken sick six months earlier and is trying to get her strength back to walk again. Lady rose’s family had a lot of issues: a  mother with some kind of mental disorder, a married sister who is desperate for her missing husband to return to India, opinionated servants, roses handicap, and missing rents. Rose and Iain make a deal to help each other as Lady rose needs help to walk again and Iain needs to be taught to be a gentleman.

I had mixed feelings about this story. I thought there was too much made of whether Iain is the Earl or not. Characters weren't as interesting as they could be. `But I did like the  plot . I also liked that Ian was willing to do whatever he had to as long as he could help his people. Also that Iain and Rose made a deal to help each other. Important events in this story seemed to be missing parts in this story and I didn’t like that.  The story also dragged at times. So there were parts I liked about this story and things I didn’t care for or liked in the story

Torkel’s Chosen By Michelle Howard 99 cents
Torkel's Chosen - Michelle Howard

What would you do if Earth didn’t have enough men?
Would you take a chance and leave the only world you knew behind?
This is the decision Faith Reid faces. Placing all her hope in a new government program, she seizes the opportunity that offers a chance for the women of Earth to find love among the stars, on a world beyond the one they know.

How many times can one man risk rejection?
Would you give up on your dreams?
Torkel Alonson has had enough of being ignored and looked over by females on his adopted home world of Enotia. His pride has suffered and he must accept the painful truth. Females will never choose a male with his evil lineage despite his honorable service to his government’s military.

Can two people looking for the same thing find not just what they want but what they need in one another?

Torkel's Chosen - Michelle Howard

This one was a really surprisingly awesome read. I mean I had hoped it would be good, but I wasn't expecting certain aspects of this story to emotionally blow me away, but it did.

This is the first book to this series. And while it does open up doors for other characters to have their stories told, I'm still on the fence about diving into the other books. Simply because I felt this one was so good, I don't see how others could be better. Still deciding if I'll proceed further or not, but I HIGHLY recommend that if you're curious about any book in this series, please start here first.

Happy Reading :)
