Aubrey Cara-Night of the Monrok

Today is another entry into the Night of… RH series. We have one more to go after this, Ava Sinclair’s book. But before we get to Ava’s book, we have Aubrey’s book.

For Aubrey’s entry into this grouping, we’re visiting her Monrok universe in Night of the Monrok. I love the Monrok. I own all the books because I love their universe and those big guys so much.

So, here’s the basic backstory on the Monrok warriors. They are genetically and cybernetically enhanced humans. As babies, the Zapex warped them, did surgery on them, and just all around treated them horribly. When the Monrok had the chance to kill the Zapexian prince who was in charge of them and escape to freedom, they did. The impetus behind their rebellion was that the Zapex had kidnapped human women and were planning on forcing the women and the Monrok to reproduce so that they would have a ready supply of babies to turn into Monrok. None of the guys wanted that to happen, so they rebelled. Now, they have been declared free by the council that rules the galaxy. Of course, that’s mostly because the council wants to have the Monrok as allies in case they need to go to war.

So, on to today’s story. It can be read as a standalone because you get enough of the history of the universe to figure out what’s going on. But, it also slides in quite well with the rest of the universe and it does expand and advance the overall storyline of all the books.

Banx, Jor, Tawn, and Ast have been a very tight unit for many, many years. They pretty much act and think as one when they are in a fight. They are good friends and brothers, even when they sometimes want to strangle each other because of whatever reason. They are currently on Ak’ba and have been told that they should go to the slave auction later that evening because there is going to be something that they would like to see.

When they get to the auction, they are amazed to see Sana. She is a veran concubine. The veran are lower-class Zapexian women and are sold as concubines. They are also seers. It’s very rare to see any Zapexian woman out and about on her own, and nearly impossible to find them being sold as slaves. When Banx first sees Sana, he knows that she is his, so he jumps on the stage, throws a bunch of money at the slavers, and carries her away, followed and guarded by his brothers. When they get to their ship, there are a bunch of Zapexian warriors waiting there, ready to fight. They want Sana back and they were willing to be stupid enough to go after a quartet of Monrok warriors.

Sana has been the concubine of a high councilor of the Zapex king. While she’s been a concubine, she’s never really been used because her master is more into the gearan, which are the male equivalent. Most veran are sterilized so that they can’t get pregnant, but some of the veran aren’t because they have special powers. Sana is one of those. Her master’s honored mate wasn’t real happy about having a veran concubine around, and when it came time to breed her, her master’s mate had Sana beaten. Pippen, Sana’s only friend, arranges to get her off planet and tells her to go to the Galactic Unity Council so that she can tell them things that she knows. He tells her to be brave and trust her fate.

The 4 Monrok guys are very similar in some things and very different in others. They each have their own personalities and their own way of doing things, especially when it comes to Sana. Banx, Tawn, and Ast are very excited to have a a mate, because they know that she is there mate. Jor, who is my favorite, by the way, isn’t as sure about it and while he’s happy to get his dick wet, he’s not so sure about Sana. He’s pretty sure that she’s going to be trouble. I’m really digging RH stories for so many reasons, but the fact that each of the men answer a need in Sana and she answers a different need in each of the men. They all show her how much they care for her, even Jor.

City of Light

So, the reason that Jor is my favorite is that he is so broken, but he takes the biggest chance when it comes to being with Sana. He really makes himself vulnerable, especially before she gets taken away. It’s beautiful. That breakthrough and the fact that he was willing to do something that would make him feel so vulnerable just shows to me how strong he was.

Anyway, that’s all of this one. Happy reading!

T.L. Smith-Distorted Love

Oh my,  there are so many things I have to say about this. This is my first TL Smith book, but it sure as hell isn’t going to be my last. There’s a second book to this duet, but anything else she’s written, I’m going to go check out.

Before I get into it, Distorted Love is part of a duet, and you know how authors love to do us. If you are one of the people who hates hanging on until the next book, wait. Also, this book takes place in Australia, but it’s mostly written in American English, so USicans should have no problem with slang and such.

Saskia is in her next to last year of school. She goes to an exclusive private school, even though she lives on the wrong side of the tracks. She gets a scholarship and wears her cousin Livia’s hand-me-downs. Saskia has been crushing on Ryken Lord as long as he’s been in the same school. He’s a year older than she is and very popular. Her friend Robert urges her to go talk to him, but Saskia would rather be the wallflower, the person no one sees. When Livia asks her if she likes Ryken, Saskia tells her no.

Ryken Lord is in his last year of school, and waiting until he turns 18. When he turns 18 he’s going to take over his father’s nightclubs, while his father continues to run the seedier part of the business. He always sees Saskia, his Barbie, no matter what. Sometimes that’s all he sees. He doesn’t talk to her though.

On the first day of school, Ryken and his best friend through a huge party. Livia drags Saskia around to the party with her. Livia wants to hit on Ryken, Saskia wants to go home. When they get there, some older guy named Quinn starts talking to her. Ryken comes out and tells him to get lost. Turns out Quinn works for his dad and collects young women to be sold. Saskia, pretty young Saskia with very few familial connections, is a perfect target. Quinn tells Ryken he won’t take Saskia on one condition, Ryken has to leave her alone. If he can stay away from Saskia, Quinn will leave her alone. Ryken tells Quinn that won’t be a problem. Quinn thinks otherwise.

That’s as far as my synopsis is going to go. This is a strangers to enemies to friends to lovers to enemies to something else altogether story. It would my brain around like you would wind spaghetti with a fork. It was hard to keep track of everything as a reader but in a good way. I can’t imagine how Saskia and Ryken were able to keep track of everything. The two of them are combustible and explosive. When the two of them get together, it’s like putting det cord and plastique together. You get a huge fucking boom and a lot of heat, and everything around it gets destroyed. That’s Saskia and Ryken. The problem is, they can’t stay away from each other. They are drawn to each other like two powerful rare earth magnets. They will knock everything out of the way to get to each other. Even when they hate each other, they love each other and vice versa. The story is a total mindfuck and trying to figure out what is going on will keep you guessing and wondering. I reached the end in a huge burst of adrenaline like I had been running a race. I can’t wait for the next one.

rope swing and lake

OMG. The end. The end of this thing. I can’t even.

I have to say, I don’t trust anything that Livia has said, so I’m thinking that the announcement is a lie. At least, that’s my opinion of the matter. I guess I’ll have to wait and see. I never really liked Livia anyway, I thought that she was bad news for Saskia and that she treated her like crap anyway. So, there’s that.

That’s all I have to say on this today. If you want to talk more about it, then you’re going to have to come find me somewhere. I’ll telll you alllllll my opinions, I swear. Happy reading!

CHECK OUT THIS EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

“Do you know the one thing a good Dom should always carry with him?” He paused for an answer, but nothing came, so he reached into the pocket of his trousers and pulled out a hairband. “Something to tie hair back. It’s not fair when a Dom can’t see his submissive’s face.” Without pomp and ceremony, he grabbed Colette’s hair and pulled it back into a ponytail. “See, much better.” He stepped in front of her to survey who he was dealing with. He hadn’t expected the large, sultry, green eyes, which stared back at him. They were full of terror but also sensuality. She took his breath away. Her lips were full, and her face, although in need of a good meal to fill it out a bit, was stunning. He held his hand out.

“Nice to meet you, Miss Colette Fisher.”

She looked down to his outstretched palm and back up to his eyes.

“Will you hurt me?” she asked.

“My intention, as stated in my letter, is to answer any questions you may have. Nothing more, nothing less. Only what you ask.” As he spoke, he already knew he wouldn’t be able to let this woman leave his life. She called to him with a need for affection and love.

“I don’t know if I can do this?”

“How do you know until you try?”

He watched as the young woman wrestled with her emotions. She was desperate to try and escape from her past, but the ingrained trauma left her feeling weak and insecure. His hand was still outstretched, and he felt her tiny fingers slowly curl around his brawny ones and squeeze.

“Be gentle with me,” she whispered.

“I promise.” He let go of her hand and took a seat on a nearby chair. The soft, black leather of the chair wrapped around his masculine frame. “I want you to get down onto the floor on your knees.”

“What?” Colette gasped.

“The first thing a submissive learns is how to pose for her Master.” He placed his hands on his thighs and stared down at her.

“My brothers made me sit on my knees for hours praying for salvation.” The corner of her eyes welled with tears no doubt from painful memories.

“Did they make you sit on a hard floor?”

“Yes.”

He reached around and pulled a cushion out from behind his back. The room was clinical, given it was in a hospital, but it was also designed for giving comfort to all who were in it.

“Use this.” He threw the pillow onto the floor.

“You…you still want me to kneel?”

“You still want me to teach you about BDSM?” he countered to her comment. He wasn’t going to give any leeway.

Slowly, Colette rose from her seat. He could see her legs were stick thin. How they held her up, he’d never know. The strength of the human body was astounding. Gingerly, she sunk to her knees before him. She bowed her head, and her hands instantly went to a prayer position in front of her.

“No.”

Her head came up.

“Am I doing it wrong?” she sounded scared.

“For the most part, it’s right. We don’t hold our hands like that, though. We place them on our thighs. Like mine.”

Colette moved her hands so the palms lay flat on her upper thighs. “Like this?”

“Yes. Good girl.” He felt the need to praise her, because she sounded happy to have her hands in the correct position.

“Why do we have to sit like this?”

“It shows your willingness for what comes next. You’re prepared to place your body into my trust.”

Ten short years of marriage is all Michael had before tragedy struck. Now mourning the loss of his wife – his childhood sweetheart – he doesn’t know if he’ll ever be able to move forward with his life. That is until he meets Colette.
