Two brothers want to possess her… After her planet was destroyed, Brianna was rescued by two fierce and desperately gorgeous warrior brothers. Aeron and Hauk. They want to keep her, protect her, mate her. But what the brothers wanted from her was too much to handle. Settling into a new culture was hard enough without dealing with the custom that dictates she mate with two males. So she pushed them away.
They’ll do anything to protect her… An attack sends Brianna back into the arms of the sexy brothers. Now they’ll do whatever it takes to win her over. But can Brianna go against the conventions of her human nature and accept both warriors as her mates? It might not matter because someone is out for blood and it’s up to Aeron and Hauk to defend her against a deadly enemy.
I have long admired writers whose creativity takes them into the future. I’m not sure I could ever dream up some of the scenarios they do and make them so realistic and believable. It’s probably one of the reasons I am not much of a sci-fi/futuristic fiction lover. But when I saw that this book was authored by one of my favorites under a pseudonym I was a sucker and had to download it. I’m glad I did.
Perhaps one of the reasons I liked this novella was the fact that the heroine struggled with the culture of the world in which she finds herself. We all know how much stress we experience when we encounter significant changes in our lives–loss of or change of jobs, a wedding or funeral, moving out of an area that has been home for a long time and so forth. Imagine finding oneself in a totally alien environment where the expectations are completely foreign to one’s upbringing as well as one’s understand of “normal” or what is “moral.” So it is with this heroine and her story unfold with a lot of emotion inwardly for her as well as the intensity of the two brothers who are determined to make her their mate.
This story is beautifully written and flows so seamlessly from page to page and scene to scene. The characters are well-defined and there is balance between dialogue and that inner monologue that all novels include, some more than others. It’s sexy and full of spice, and the brothers are the stuff of which fantasies are made. This author has put lots of story in a small number of pages. It’s not long or time consuming but is a very nice little literary treat for an afternoon or short evening read or one of those nice things we do for ourselves amid the busyness of our day. With the holidays approaching, this would be a nice little “personal time” kind of indulgence.
I give it a rating of 3.75 out of 5
