Brides of the Kindred, book sixteen

ISBN 9781311078667

Kate McMillan has a good life and a decent job working at a jewelry store but there’s something wrong. She also has a hole in her memory—a three year gap where she can’t remember a thing. Kate tries to tell herself she’s okay but she knows it isn’t true. Someone is hunting her—a huge man with glowing blue eyes is lingering on the edges of her vision. Every time Kate sees him her pulse races and fear grips her.

Rone is a Wulven Kindred—feared and shunned even by others of the Kindred race. For the Wulven carry a Beast inside them that will kill anyone unlucky enough to be near when it emerges. Only a female who has tamed a male Wulven’s Beast is immune from this danger. Rone once had such a mate—before she was snatched away.

For months he’s been searching for his missing bride but when he finally locates Kate, he finds that she has forgotten him completely. Not only that, but his mere presence engenders a panic response in the woman who once loved him. Their bond has been broken and Kate doesn’t know him. Worse, his Beast no longer acknowledges her as his mated female. Rone doesn’t blame Kate for thinking he is dangerous—he is and always will be unless she can tame his Beast.

But in order to tame the Beast, Kate must take a terrible risk…one that may end in her death. Will she be able to control her fear and face the danger that lives inside her mate or will Rone remain forever…Forgotten?

Solar M'Tex is a Havoc--a race of males who have sworn never to bond themselves to a female. So the idea of serving or loving any woman, no matter how beautiful, is foreign to him. But when he gets captured and sold at the Flesh Bazaar, he has no say in who buys him. Before he knows it he is the exclusive property of Kaylee, a lush little female from Yonnie Six who wants her own personal body slave.

Kaylee is new to Yonnie Six high society. She didn't even know she needed a body slave until her new friend Lyla told her. But when Lyla talks her into buying the huge, muscular Havoc, she doesn't know what to do with him--or have any idea how she's going to master him.

Soon they're in Kaylee's new dungeon with all the equipment a Mistress could need to tame a new slave. Kaylee does her best but when Solar gets free of his restraints, the tables are turned. Will she escape from the male she dared to try and master...or will Solar end up Mastering the Mistress?

Mastering the Mistress is a Brides of the Kindred novella
Set in the Kindred universe, this novella tells the story of what happened to Solar, Thrace's best friend and first mate who was also captured and sold as a slave.

We all have one: an ever growing To Be Read list. Or pile. Or pit. Near the end of 2015, I had well over a hundred books on mine. A mild number compared to some others out there. But well, since I'm not the reader I used to be, it was rather evident that something needed to be done or those poor, beloved treasures would remain there, ever collecting both dust and shame. So I stacked them up, sorted them out, and purged my ashamed self of those books I just don't see myself ever getting to. My free time has become rather limited and the direction of my interests and imagination is no longer on a few of the genres I'd collected.

Below are the books that were cut from my TBR.

  1. Assassin's Honor by Monica Burns
  2. Bear Necessities by Dana Marie Bell
  3. Hard Evidence by Pamela Clare
  4. Death Most Definite by Trent Jamieson

  14. Mark of the Witch by Maggie Shayne
  15. Darkness Awakened by Elle Chardou
  16. The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra R Clarke
  17. Teasing the Wildcat by Mina Carter
  18. Taming the Wildcat by Mina Carter
  19. Seduced by Him by Elle Spencer
  20. The Threshold Child by Callie Kanno

"I want to give her more."

Burning Dawn
Gena Showalter
Angels of the Dark, book three
ebook, 432 pages
Published April 29th 2014 by MIRA
ISBN 9781488709562

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy’s clutches — a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires.

Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane’s unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears — and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

I'm definitely enjoying the Angels of the Dark much more than I am the Lords of the Darkness. And this, Thane's story, just might be my favorite of the Angels.

When we first met Thane back in book one, he was the epitome of a cold-hearted bastard and it's almost traumatizing to see him fall so far as he becomes a mindless sex slave to Kendra, a twisted Phoenix who used her poisons (and sex) to bind him to her. At this point not even even his beloved friends, Xerxes and Bjorn, can save him. It eventually falls to Elin, fellow slave and human/Phoenix half-breed, to set him free.

And soon enough, Thane goes from a sadistic/masochistic bed-her-and-forget-her jackass to a besotted romantic, living for Elin's happiness.

He headed into town to buy chocolates and romance novels. Several hours ticked past as he selected the very best of both. A man devoted time to what mattered to him- to what he deemed worthy of his attention.
When he finished, he tracked down Merrick.
A man guarded what mattered to him.

Too bad when he finally gets the chance to prove his faith in Elin, Thane's devastating failure shakes them both and their budding relationship to the core. With Elin's qualms about being unfaithful to her dead husband's memory, she finds even more of a drive to cut ties with the Sent One when he, upon discovering her mixed heritage, shuns her, abandoning her to what would have been her Phoenix masters had Xerxes not intervened. In the end, she ended up at the mercy of demons. Luckily, it took just hours for Thane to come to his senses and he has the chance to play Hero once more.

Had the ending not felt rushed as it did, this was definitely five star material.

Star Cruise: Marooned
Veronica Scott
Kindle Edition, 140 pages
Published June 18th 2015 by Jean D Walker

Meg Antille works long hours on the charter cruise ship Far Horizon so she can send credits home to her family. Working hard to earn a promotion to a better post (and better pay), Meg has no time for romance.

Former Special Forces soldier Red Thomsill only took the berth on the Far Horizon in hopes of getting to know Meg better, but so far she’s kept him at a polite distance. A scheduled stopover on the idyllic beach of a nature preserve planet may be his last chance to impress the girl.

But when one of the passengers is attacked by a wild animal it becomes clear that conditions on the lushly forested Dantaralon aren’t as advertised – the ranger station is deserted, the defensive perimeter is down…and then the Far Horizon’s shuttle abruptly leaves without any of them.

Marooned on the dangerous outback world, romance is the least of their concerns, and yet Meg and Red cannot help being drawn to each other once they see how well they work together. But can they survive long enough to see their romance through? Or will the wild alien planet defeat them, ending their romance and their lives before anything can really begin?

This one had a rough start for me, but once it really started going (that is, when people started dying), I was totally engrossed by the story and the main characters, Simon (aka Red) and Meg.

Years ago, Red, while on task with his team, experienced a prophetic moment that forewarned him that he would have but one chance at love. After a mission goes awry and Red finds himself retired from the military he moves on to find security work on a high end galactic cruise line, but gets sidelined when he meets Meg, and suddenly his course of action takes a dramatic shift to a mediocre vessel.

Too bad the woman he's chasing isn't of mind to be caught.

As Red tries, and tries and tries, to make a good impression on the rule driven Meg, there seems to be no hope for the one chance he was destined for. Until the war raging light years away ends up on their beach and they're left marooned with no hope of a rescue.

With the responsibility of their clients' lives weighing on their shoulders, not to mention their own being on the line, Red and Meg come together to survive storms, wildlife, and dumb but deadly pirates.

There doesn't seem to be an official order to this series, but if the rest are anything like Marooned then I may have to start accumulating the collection.

4 out of 5 stars.
