Rebel West & Renee Rose-Claimed by the Zandian

We are once again back with my favorite purple horny aliens. I love this spinoff of the original Zandians as much as I loved the original books. Some of these books are RH, some aren’t. Claimed by the Zandian is one of the latter category.

So, Zina is a human slave. She is disabled because of some horrible things that her masters had done to her and now she works as a house slave. She also takes care of the young that her master gets. She’s spent the last 9 years taking care of a human little girl named Enya who is as beautiful as the day is long. Zina does everything she can to hide Enya’s beauty, because being a beautiful slave just isn’t a good thing. But it doesn’t matter what she tries, one day the master sends his henchmen to drag her away so that he can sell her. Luckily, Enya pitches enough of a fit and Zina fights enough that she gets taken along.

Meanwhile, we have Tarek. He is blind and has been since birth. But that hasn’t stopped him from doing what he can for his beloved Zandia. Dr. Daneth did all kinds of surgeries on him, and now he’s got tech in his brain that lets him “see”. Think Geordie Leforge without the visor and purple. He can use that tech to link up to the ships and navigate and pilot them. He’s the best pilot that the Zandians have. That’s why he’s part of the crew that is going out on a very special mission for Zandia, and Dr. Daneth in particular. Right now, they are going after a little girl named Enya. They are going to rescue her and bring her back to Zandia. But when they get there, it turns out that there is a human woman who has done everything she can to keep Enya safe, including attacking the Zandians, so they take her too.

Of course, having been slaves, neither Enya or Zina trust anyone. I mean can you really believe them? I sure as fuck wouldn’t. And heaven love the Zandians, but they are sometimes quite black and white and don’t get some of the difficulties of being a human in a very, very unfavorable universe. I mean, yeah, the Zandians had a hard time, but they haven’t been kept as slaves for generations upon generation. That can be hard and totally change the way that a species looks at the world and the way that an individual acts.

I really like Tarek and Zina’s story. One reason for that is you don’t often see characters who have physical disabilities as the main love interests romances. Renee and Rebel didn’t make their disabilities the main characteristic of the character or the most important characteristic. I truly appreciate that.

I really enjoy seeing the older couples and how they are doing.

I think that Tarek should’ve told Zina what was happening so that she was blindsided by it. I also think that they should’ve let Zina be more involved from the beginning because it would’ve been easier on everyone, I think.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check out all the Zandians. Happy reading!

Sara Fields-Manhandled

Sara is back with another scifi romance, with aliens with gigantic magical cocks. I think magical cocks are probably the best kind of cocks, and I am totally jealous of Cara. One reviewer said that Manhandled was basically just porn, and frankly, I wonder what exactly is wrong with that? Especially when it’s very well-written porn, like this is.

So, here’s our story. Cara works for some really, really bad guys. She’s the mechanic of a ship, which got confiscated by the government, so now she’s paid her very last bit of cash to another ship to take her to Dryac. Dryac is pretty much the Wild West of space. No one really truly rules it, and just about anything goes there. She knows that she’ll be able to find a job, then she can get in touch with her handler at the Association and get back to work for them so that she can send money to her family and keep them safe. Of course, it doesn’t work out all that well for her because she’s a tiny human woman on a planet where there aren’t a whole lot of rules and there are a lot of huge aliens who think that human women are fair game. In fact, on her way to find a job, one of them grabs her and tries to have his way with her and then he is going to sell her. Whoopsie.

Then, along comes an even bigger alien who beats the crap out the first alien, then proceeds to belt the hell out of Cara’s ass. And when that was done, he decided that he needed to punish her some more. Which leads to him taking her home.

Bane is the name of the bigger alien with the magical cock. It vibrates, it spins, it hits all the magical spots. I mean, totally magical. He is actually a pretty nice guy for all that he belted a woman in the middle of the marketplace where everyone could see. Of course, nice guy doesn’t mean that he’s an overall good guy. I think that he’s as honorable as he can get, and he follows his own code and his own honor, which I am all fine with.  His world is not my world, and our rules are different for each other.

Cara is smart, funny, stubborn, and very, very canny. She’s a good fighter too. She’s also very dedicated to her family, and she will do everything she can to make sure that they are safe, even if she doesn’t like what she has to do. I would very much like to have her on my side if I were in trouble, because I don’t think that she would let anyone or anything stop her from getting to the person she wants to protect.

There is more than just porn in this book, there is a good story too. But, yeah, really good smut. Honestly, how and why would anyone complain about that? I think that everyone needs to have some quality smut in their lives.

I love how Cara handles her problems. I really wouldn’t want to mess with her, you know?

OK, that’s all for today! Go check out all Sara’s books! Happy reading!

Nicole Blanchard & K Webster-The Uncertain Scientist

We’re back in K and Nicole’s scifi romance world, with just a few Morts and the few human women that they have managed to come across. The Uncertain Scientist is Jareth, Sayer, and Grace’s book. And I think that it is the best one to date. It’s an amazing book with so much love, anger, sadness, yelling, passion, and information. I have to admit that in my head, Jareth totally looks like Jareth the Goblin King, with huge bulge and sexy David Bowie voice. Don’t burst my dream, OK? I would probably cry if you did, and no one wants to see a poor book blogger cry, now do they?

So, Grace is one of the human women that the Morts have been keeping in cryosleep. They have decided to wake her up. Only, she’s not all that happy. You see, she’s pregnant. With Sayer’s child. Without her permission. And did I mention she’s a virgin who has never wanted children or even a relationship? Yeah, she’s not a happy camper right now. And she makes sure that Sayer knows it. And that everyone else knows it too.

Meanwhile, Sayer and Jareth aren’t all that happy either. You see, they’ve been mates for years. They’ve been keeping it secret because they don’t think that the other Morts will understand. It’s not something that has happened before. But Jareth and Sayer both keep telling each other that this isn’t going to break them apart. They are excited about the new mortling being born, but Sayer and Jareth don’t want to break up. Jareth is pretty sure it’s going to happen, Sayer keeps telling him that it’s not. But then, as is her way, that bitch Mother Nature gets involved, and things happen.

I love the whole MMF-ness of this book. But it’s more than just the whole MMF aspect. There’s a lot of emotion in this one. Sayer is angry. Jareth is angry. Grace is angry. The other human women are angry. There is a whole lot of fucking anger here. And I’m not going to say it’s not justified on all sides, because it really is. There is a lot of stuff in here to be angry about. There’s also a whole lot of sadness going on in here. The way that Jareth and Sayer feel about each other and how they think that they are going to end up breaking up, especially after the pheromones get to work. Or how Grace thinks she had to do certain things for certain reasons.

I also love the acceptance in this one. There are some places where things that could be awkward or uncomfortable, but instead, there’s a whole lot of just easy acceptance. That was pretty awesome.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how the information we got in this book works out in the next one. I’m also looking forward to seeing what happens with Hadrian.

OMG, when Grace got on the ship I thought I was going to just die. My heart was breaking.

OK, that’s all for today! Go check it out! Happy reading!

Grace Goodwin-Hunted

Grace is back with the 17th book in her Interstellar Brides Program series. Hunted is an awesome addition to the series. And while no species will ever surpass my beloved Atlans, the Everians aren’t bad.

This book is different to the other ones in the series. Generally, we have a male who has been in service to the Coalition for years who is getting matched to a bride, but that’s not quite the case here. Instead, we have Vice-Admiral Niobe, who is the highest ranking person in the entire Coalition military force. The ONLY person who can override her is Prime Niall. She is half-human, half-Everian, and runs the academy, on top of other, more secretive kinds of things. After years of service, a friend of hers has talked her into undergoing the bride testing. And she gets a match. She’s matched to Everis, to Elite Hunter Quinn.

Now, as an Elite Hunter, Quinn is more like a military contractor. He’s not officially part of the Coalition, but he is employed by them. He’s currently supposed to be working on a secret base, but the Hive has taken the base captive, and he’s a prisoner. Years ago, he underwent the testing for a bride, but hasn’t been matched yet. Then, all of a sudden, a woman transports into the secret base he’s one, and singlehandedly kills three Hive members and is pretty much BAMF. She rescues Quinn and when he asks who she is, all she tells him is that she’s his mate. Which pretty much knocks him down with a feather.

OMFG, Niobe is way up in my personal fave heroine list. She is strong, fierce, talented, and maybe just a little bit scary. She is where she is because she worked really hard at it. She has earned every last bit of respect and responsibility that she has. She is tough and thorough. Her goal is to get rid of the Hive and to keep as many Coalition members safe and unharmed as possible. I think that it might hurt her a little bit every time someone gets hurt on her watch, and it’s always her watch.

I have to admit, as much as I like Quinn, there are times when I really didn’t like him and got really mad at him. I think that there are just times when he just doesn’t quite get it. And that makes things a lot worse. Even when he has things explained to him, he has to have them explained to them in about a zillion ways before it clicks with him. That is really frustrating to me, and I’m sure it really frustrated Niobe too.

I love the whole Everian aspect of this with all the hunting. That’s just a lot of fun.

I am hopeful that we find out more about the Nexus and the Hive soon.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Maddie Taylor-Primarian Mates

So, Maddie has a SFR series called the Primarian Mates. It consists of 4 books, The Barbarian’s Captive, His By Command, His Rebellious Mate, and Defying the General. I reviewed Defying back when it came out. Each book follows a new couple, but the stories are all interconnected, so while they could all be read as standalones, it’s really better to read them in order.

Here’s the basic story. Earth has pretty much killed herself. Massive climate change has led to self-destruction. So, humans have sent out a ship filled with 300 women to find a new planet. The goal is to find someplace where the humans can go and resettle, or at least a lot of them. The Odyssey has been searching for 3 long years, and nada. But, then, miraculously, they found a planet. A team of scientists and military personnel went down to explore and take samples, because from space it looked good. And that’s when it all went pear shaped.

The Primarians are a patriarchal society. Even the least strong male is still all alpha and all in charge. What makes it even worse is that several years ago something called the Rain of Fire happened. Basically, a whole bunch of rocks fell out of the sky, killed many, especially females, and left the majority of females infertile. The females who can still conceive are much more likely to give birth to males more than females. The people of Primaria are slowly dying out. They’ve been looking for another species that they are compatible with so that they can start to rebuild their population.

In Captive, The Princip, or ruler, of Primaria is named Kerr. He and a bunch of his buddies are out on a hunting trip to their hunting planet, which just happens to be the same one the Odyessy found, and they all just happen to be there at the same time. The guys, who are all ginormous with ass-length hair and just happen to be dressed as barbarians, start chasing the women. They end up capturing 8 of them,  including a botanist named Eva, who just happens to catch Kerr’s eye, and actually turns out to be compatible with him.

Command is the story of Magda and Rothke. She’s the captain of the Odyssey and he’s the head of the Primarian Space Fleet. Since they have found out that the human women are compatible and 8 women aren’t about to rebuild their population, the Primarians have decided that they are going to go after the Odyessy and get the other 292 women and mate them as well. Because if 8 are good, then 300 is like 40 times better, right? Still not enough to help repopulate the world, but if all the women get highly compatible matches, then it’s at least a pretty good start.

Rebellious is all about Eryn and Ram. She was one of the original 8 and Ram was the warrior that she was mated to. The problem is that they didn’t get along all that well. They had some serious issues. Now, she’s dissolved their mate-ship, and she’s gone back to earth to help set up the arrangements and treaties between Primaria and Earth. But all is not peaceful on Earth. Even though things have gotten worse since the Odyssey left, there are a lot of humans who don’t want to work with the Primarians and don’t want to go to the new planet. Because of course there are. They cause a lot of problems and Eryn and Ram get caught in it.

Defying is the story of Lana and Trask. Lana was one of the original 8 too. Trask is the high muckety muck in the military and Kerr’s cousin. They are also my favorite couple in the series, and this is my favorite book. Their book takes place over many months and deals with their mating and their separation. It’s terribly heartbreaking at times, and I just bawled my fucking eyes out while I was reading it.

The books, especially the first two, really deal with the cultural differences in between the Primarians and the humans. It shows up a lot in between Maggie and Roth, because she’s the captain and used to being in charge, and all of a sudden isn’t anymore.

On top of dealing with those cultural differences, there are also the personal challenges that each person and each couple has to go through. None of them have an easy journey. Even the easiest one, which I think Eva and Kerr’s story is, doesn’t go all that easily. Which, you know, I like because just because you have a high compatibility match doesn’t mean that you fall 100% in love immediately, and just because you are 100% in love doesn’t mean that everything is going to be nice and smooth.

Anyway, the books are all filled with love, passion, conspiracy, mistrust, suspicion, adventured, and misunderstandings. They are compelling to read and whenever I reread them, I get drawn back into them.

So, that’s all for today. You have choices when it comes to checking them out. There’s a boxset you can look at or you can get whatever ones you need to read. Happy reading!

Cari Silverwood-Condemned

Cari is back with a hot, kinky scifi story. This one is a RH, and we are back with the mauleons, which means more of Cari’s addiction to HUGE cocks. Oh, and by the way, if you read the acknowledgments, don’t believe her. She’s not all sweet and innocent. She can only be egged on if she has the idea to begin with. Anyway, back to Condemned and 4 huge cocks.

Avalon is a huleon. She’s a human/mauleon hybrid. And she’s being blackmailed by her uncle to go steal from the mauleons. Not only is he blackmailing her to steal, but he’s getting her to steal a royal artifact from the mauleons, and one which will probably keep the war going for right now. Everything seems to be going reasonably well, until her teammates throw a flare right at the roof that she is hiding on. It catches the roof on fire and catches the attention of the 4 mauleons who are right under the roof that she’s hiding on. And whoops, that’s not a very good thing to have happen. The next thing that Ava knows is that she’s sentenced to death, and not a very nice one. She’s to be impaled on a spear, paraded through town, and then shot in the head.

Takk, Timin, Zo, and Kondio are a squad that have been together for a long time during this war. They have been through a lot together, and they are good friends as well as teammates. Takk is their leader, and he has led them well. Now, he’s gotten them to place where they have the honor of killing this thief. Only, there’s just something about her. Something that won’t let them participate in her death. So, they decide they are going to steal the thief.

Of course, it’s never as easy as it sounds, because that wouldn’t be so fun, would it? We get to watch while Avalon plots and schemes, trying to figure out how to get away. She almost does a time or two. And I’m sure we can all guess exactly how well that went over for her, can’t we?

I like Avalon. I also feel sorry for her. She’s been abandoned by everyone who should’ve ever taken care of her. And because she’s a hybrid, she gets shit on all sides. Too mauleon for the humans, too human for the mauleons, and just ignored and mistreated by everyone around. I don’t think anyone has ever just taken care of her or try to help her. Instead, she gets jerkoffs like her uncle who force her and blackmail her into doing things. Or people who beat her so that she will become the best thief possible. She does have Nibbles, but she hasn’t had him long. And Nibbles is so very, very, very cute.

I think of Takk, Zo, Kondio, and Timin, I like Zo and Kondio the most. Of course, that may be because they warm up to Avalon first. But Zo really takes care of her and worries about her. Of course, he spanks her too, but hey, that’s all part of the taking care of her too, so it works out well. Timin took a while to warm up, but I wonder how much of that is just trying to get through all the bullshit from the war and the residuals from his injury. I think that one of my favorite non-sex scenes is when Avalon is taking care of Timin. He doesn’t really want her to, but she’s there just caring for him.

Takk took me a minute to figure out how I felt about him. I could tell that he was an honorable male and one who was just trying to do the best for his friends, but I think that he sometimes saw things in a much more black and white way than it needed to be seen. I dunno, maybe it’s just me.

Watch for Easter Eggs that Cari has planted, because she does that.

horse-3395135_1920

I love ARBO. And even better, I love the full revelation we get about him, lol.

I thought it was funny that the priest were basically begging Takk to take Avalon away.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Ana B. Starr-Omega of Sathion

Today, we get two of my favorite things. It’s a new Omegaverse story and I get to introduce you to a brand new author! We know how I love those things, right? Ana has written Omega of Sathion, which isn’t just O-verse, it’s also scifi, and stars humans who have no clue who they are, space pirates, and assorted other aliens.

So, Faye is a young woman who is on the verge of death. She is fighting off another bout of cancer. She’s already lost her legs to it, but that wasn’t enough, now she’s about to lose her life. But her doctor, who’s been hooking up with her mother, tells her mom that he has a way that she can keep living. It turns out that he is an alien, called a Pleiadian. They have been coming to Earth for a while to try to help humans along. Anyway, he can cure her cancer and give her legs back. The only problem is that she will officially be dead, so she’s going to have to go to a colony on a planet called Sathion. Many humans are already there, and they are trying to give it a good go. She agrees, because life on another planet is better than death from cancer, and it’s kind of exciting anyway.

Two long years later, after her legs have grown back, it’s time for her to go out to space and begin her journey to Sathion. She’s learned all she needs to know about the planet, gotten a universal translator, and is totally raring to go. But, sadly, that’s not where this journey is about to end up.

You see, space pirates capture her ship, take her and her friend, tell them they are Omegas, whatever the hell that is, and that they are going to be the crew’s toys.

Faye is a very determined young woman. She has had to be. I mean, think about what she’s gone through. She has a spine of steel, and she isn’t about to bend at all. She’s going to do what she needs to do to do what she wants. She wants to get to Sathion. She knows that’s where her life is going to be, because that’s where it has to be. So, she’s going to manage to get there, somehow.

I really do like Faye a lot. I like that stubbornness. I don’t know if it’s part of her natural personality or if it’s a learned behavior from everything that she’s had to go through in her life. Because either way would work for me, and really either way would work for Faye, I think. I think she totally deserves her happiness and someone to love and cherish her.

You’ll notice, I’m sure, that I didn’t mention anything about Alphas or males or anything, other than when I said something about space pirates. There are reasons for that. Am I going to tell you those reasons? Nope. I’m mean that way. LOLOLOL.

Depositphotos_19099781_xl-2015

I don’t trust the Pleiadians. I think there is something off about them. I’m going to be eagerly awaiting the series to see what more comes out about them.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Hit up the Zon and check it out! Happy reading!
