We’re back in the world of Veiled Eliminators! Twenty-Four is an assassin who is partnered with an android/cyborg named Ninety one. However, their mismatched nature may actually bring them closer together. As they risk their lives on a mission, loyalties are testing and their world forever changed.
The beginning is a little confusing. I wasn’t sure what is going on or who the characters are. Eventually you get an ohhhh moment. Now I understand the beginning but the way it is written is confusing to start a story. That said, this is another great addition to the series. This follows the same pattern as the first two books. Loyal assassins go on a mission, see the truth and defect but not without a battle. I like Twenty-Four. She survives some terrifying events and is stronger for it. The romance between them is sweet and slow but I wish it had more heat. The action and intrigue is, as always in this series, fantastic!
Two/Starla is a trained assassin but with the help of her partner Four/David, they deviate from their mission to create their own future.
Despite having her memory wiped Two remembers things including her real name. The beginning is a little slow moving. It’s just introducing characters and the world without anything that really pulled me in. That said, once she’s sent on her mission and meets Four things really perk up. I liked the tension between them. There was a great push and pull. Once they’re on the run it’s all action and romance. I could not stop reading! There is also great world building that really intrigued me.
Extrication is a great start to a new scifi series!
Casey is on the hunt for a traitor but he/she strikes first and she’s plunging from a plane when an idiot tries to save her. Hothar has found his mate and will do anything to protect her? Even as the bad guys mount …
I loved Casey! She’s fierce and badass and telekinetic. Hothar is a Coletti warrior and when he meets his mate, he has a hard time keeping his hands off her. They are a fabulous together, push and pull. The heat factor is smoking. There’s also action and adventure of the traitor. There’s also some great humor and that had me snorting. The author creates an interesting world with lovely nooks and crannies that are explored throughout the series. Hothar’s Folly is another great addition to the Coletti Warlord series. This is a mix of genre’s so there is something for everyone.
Hothar’s Folly is a must read!

Air/Vyolet meets Stryfe during a prison break but escaping is the least of their problems...
The beginning feels more like a synopsis rather than the beginning of the story. I wish the author had incorporated this more smoothly. It makes things very confusing. I had a hard time sorting things out especially when the story jumps to two months earlier and then add in all the characters. Stryfe and Air have good chemistry together and are very romantic. The action is good too but there was a lot of lengthy scenes that I wish were trimmed.
The first two books are really great and I’d highly recommend them!
Zyroa is fighting her planned future as a breeder but a sexy man finds her, a dream mate that gives them a real chance. Can they live long enough to explore their feelings and discover their future?
The beginning feels very telling and forced. There is very little emotion from Zyroa despite her mother’s heart stopping and her brother being born. It’s also confusing because there are mentions of other characters as if we’re supposed to know them. Perhaps they were mentioned in the first book, Birch’s Faith? I read that a few months ago.
I liked Zyroa. She’s in a bad position in life but she refuses to give in. She’s a fighter and hopeful. D’reaper is searching for the woman he’s dreamed about since he was fourteen. When they meet the sparks fly! There’s a lot of action too. Add that to some steamy scenes and this book hooked me. I can’t wait to read the next book!
Birch and Zev have a complicated history that includes love and betrayal. They separated but never forgot about each other. When a medical center is blown up and Birch is the suspect, they are thrown back together. As the mystery unfolds, the romance has Birch and Zev risking their hearts as well as their lives.
I like Birch. She’s a tough chick that has learned through hard times how to survive. When she falls for Zev, I’m totally routing for them but, that romance is shattered and they separate tragically. When Zev tackles a suspect running from the hospital bombing and finds out it’s Birch, I was on the edge of my seat! There’s plenty of action and mystery. The science fiction is really well done. The romance is okay. I think more heat would have made Birch and Zev feel more intense as a couple. Some places in the story are almost as if they are over edited because scenes felt a little flat. This is a good story. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend giving Birch’s Faith a try. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!
Cassie is just trying to do a good thing and it bites her in the butt. She’s kidnapped by aliens and is now stuck on an alien planet. Officers Deryc and Gage find the unauthorized human but feel a connection to her. They want her for themselves…
Poor Cassie. She did a good thing and woke in a suitcase with a bunch of puppies on an alien planet. That sounds like my kind of luck. She’s in hiding when she meets Deryc and Gage. These sexy aliens have her all sorts of excited and the feelings are mutual. Add in some seriously hot sex and this book is a must read! Great characters, action, scifi, and that ending set up for the next book.
If you like scifi erotica, I highly recommend Hidden Cargo.
Beauty is only space deep
Taken from the only family she has ever known on planet Vaaden, and forced into slavery as a young girl, Rena has no knowledge of her human origins. Given as a gift to a Zelthranite officer, her damaged body incites only pity from Commander Ryx, who in turn charges his lieutenant Beren with her safekeeping. Having long abandoned any hope of a suitable mate, the battle-scarred and disfigured Beren soon finds a kindred spirit in the fragile and mistreated Rena. Can two damaged souls of vastly different species find beauty and healing beyond their beastly exteriors?
I was delighted to discover that this story is a continuation of an earlier-reviewed installment of this series, Jennifer and the Alien Badass. Jennifer and Siril's relationship lay the groundwork for this saga, and happily make a reappearance near the end of this book. Again I am struck by the juxtaposition of futuristic high tech vs age-old human struggles; unthinkable that slavery should still exist in societies advanced enough for space travel, but there it is. I guess some things take longer to transcend above than others. The writing itself is straightforward and easy to read but by the same token lacks inspiration or interesting vocabulary. In spite of that, I love this series for its exploration of the not-so-perfect hero and heroine, whose physical deformities affect but do not define them, and allow them the pursuit of love, happiness, and a hopeful future.
Equally enjoyable is the gentle but steadily growing attraction between Beren and Rena, their progression from strangers to lovers happening in a sweet and natural way, yet leading to Nova-magnitude hot sex--several times! If you're looking for alien encounters of the sexy kind', this book will definitely get your ticket on the rocket to interspecies intimacy punched and validated!!
Mission of...Have Mercy!
Captaining your own spaceship has its perks, but finding love in a lonely galaxy isn't one of them. Capt. Arrah Crace thinks her heart's been locked down for good, until an super-sexy intergalactic bouncer she's hired for protection on a medical relief mission blows her sensual blast doors wide open.
Outer space may be cold, but this sci-fi romance is smoking hot. In spite of this story's short length, all the main characters are remarkably well developed (in more ways than one) and the plot holds just the right combination of simplicity and intrigue. Arrah Trace is in command, a respected leader who has no trouble expressing her feminine sexual side. Lash Trag is a Beguiler from planet Arkos, a man who has the power to use his sexual pheremones at will to influence others. But really, who needs that when his muscular, sexy regular self does all the influence he needs? Arrah and Lash's attraction is immediate and their private encounters hot as an exploding star! The author also does a great job in creating the futuristic setting, making it plausible and with a realistic level of technology, something this reader admires. As well, an honorable mention to Arrah's human-cyborg second in command Phadar. Too sexy to be artificial, he's a robot to remember! He's more than meets the eye, and we'll be keeping watch for his story in upcoming installments to this series.
While its short length, too many "A" names (Arrah, Arkos, Avira, Adana) and odd cover art are minor drawbacks, for those who may not ordinarily venture into the space opera genre, Beguiled is a great way to start the journey!
Have you ever watched the Firefly television series? This is a combo of the episodes where Mal gets into a dual with the jerk that’s dating Inara and the episode where they have to save the whorehouse. The technology, the Victorian style, all that plus sexy men getting it on. Seriously, you can’t go wrong.
Captain Nate never expected a handsome man like Aiden to literally fall into his arms or that said man would be royalty...…
A sweet virgin prince with a hairy burly captain, this is going to be good and it is. I like the age difference and how the guys acted with each other. They have great chemistry. There’s a lot of scifi action which really adds to the story. They romance did move kind of quickly though but it is super hot. Also, lube dispensers in the headboard and some sexy piercings ...… enough said! The ending is a cliff hanger because there are so many questions left without answers. There’s no doubt I have to give this book four stars though. It is entertaining, sexy and I like the world, sorry, universe building. I’m excited to read the next book in the series!
