“You can put me down now.” Charlie’s heart was pounding—she wasn’t sure why. “I mean, I really am fine.”

“No you’re not. You’re wounded. And I must heal you.”

The look in his eyes was beyond intense as he cupped her cheek.

“But…” Charlie started to protest, her heart pounding.

“Open to me.” His voice had gone deep and soft and commanding. “Open  and let me heal you, Charlotte.”

“I…” But further words of protest seemed to die on her lips as he bent her over his arm and sealed his mouth to hers.

Charlie gave a little gasp as she felt his lips press gently but firmly to hers. Then his tongue was there, tracing the seam of her lips, seeking entrance. She wanted to pull away and cuss at him—tell him he had no right. Instead she felt her lips parting, allowing him in when she knew she shouldn’t.

He’s just healing me, she told herself desperately. It’s not really a kiss. But it certainly felt like one, especially when his tongue entwined with hers and he sucked gently, as though inviting her to explore his mouth as he was exploring hers.

Charlie gave a helpless little moan and took his unspoken invitation. God, his mouth was so warm and he tasted like cinnamon—cinnamon and some exotic mint she’d never had before. She could feel the edges of his fangs but this time he somehow managed to keep from cutting her with them even when the tip of her tongue danced dangerously over their razor-sharp points. The kiss went on and on and his dark, spicy scent filled her senses until Charlie felt like she was drowning in him, being completely consumed from the inside out.

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I read the first four or five books in this series and adored them. However, I lost track. I didn't even realize there were any new ones let alone the eight or nine that I've somehow missed. :-( 

That being said, you can read these out of order. They are very stand alone friendly as I just proved by skipping so many books and then reading this with not so much as an eyebrow raised in confusion.

This is a series about aliens and their desire and struggle to find mates. They are known as the Kindred. 

There were four hundred plus pages to my delight! This book was jam packed with plot. It didn't lag or cause me to lose my interest once. :-) There were some surprises, romance, lots of alpha male actions, steamy scenes, good characters and oodles of action. :-)

In this particular book, they are outlawed from Earth. We are at war with them.

Stavros is our leading man. He is a type of Kindred known as a death eater or a cursed one. His life span is expected to be shorter than most due to his abilities. You see, he feels the pain of others, not emotional pain which would be bad enough. It is physical pain that he feels.

The book starts out excitingly with Stavros being heroic even though it gets him into trouble.

This my friends is where our leading lady greets us. She is a human cop named Charlie who arrests Stavros after watching him save the day.

These two get at each other from the start. ;-)

I suggest reading this if you like alien stories or just something different with plenty of plot and sexiness too!

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, So Good!
