I recommend as enjoyable! Caught between a whip and a hard-nose, the heroine discovers her enemy is caring, attractive, and…not her enemy. The hero, in search of a spy to help overthrow their alien overlords, discovers his mate in the bleeding, bound woman left behind to face his wrath…of possessive sexual domination.
Codename Autumn by Cyndi Friberg
“How long will I remain…yours?”
His fingers tangled in her hair and he leaned down, brushing his lips against her cheek as he asked, “Do you really want to know the answer to that question?”
I recommend as enjoyable! Justifiably paranoid heroine makes a series of bad judgements which ends up leaving her happy and fulfilled. It’s a terrible morality. As is pretty much every character except the ones you don’t get to meet. The hero is a technologically-enhanced-emotionally-stunted assassin sent to collect her, but who collects whom becomes debatable the minute they meet. Sex scenes are awkward and great as these two characters just plow through the pretenses.
Driven: A Northern Waste Novel by Eve Silver
“Romance. Compliments. Gifts.” He gave an abrupt nod. “Understood.”
“Your eyes are appropriately spaced,” he whispered.
“Tomorrow, I will order you a set of titanium body armor.”
While seeing allromance.com close down was sad, *it’s been quite a staple in my life*, discovered that the good bye is going to be a lengthy one: 90 percent of my book links go to its *now former* website. *GROAN* And I had just updated all the Ellora’s Cave links to allromance when their authors vacated en masse *over-leveraged*. So for now, *dear followers*, if you are unable to find a particular book in this database, do not give up. 99 percent of these I have with no restriction on loaning. So consider this more of a library site than actual *link to* purchasing while this all gets worked out. Thank you *toodles!*
I recommend as awesome! Soldier is orgasmically tortured by aliens in an attempt to get him to reveal secret information. Which he doesn’t know. So it gets harder and harder and keeps coming and coming. Fortunately, he gets rescued. Not that he appreciates it at that point.
The Human Equation by D. Mark Alderton
“It was supremely revolting and I may never get those disgusting images out of my head”
I recommend as entertaining (for the horror-inclined)! Computerized lenses that give everyone access to information on the people around them…including infidelity, seeing under their clothes, and sexual preferences…make for the kind of discomfort a psychic society would live in. Yes, these lenses can read your reaction to these words. First of all, you’re struggling through my sentence structure, and secondly are attempting to satisfy your curiosity as to whether the content and cover jibe to pique your interest. The hero/heroine’s express their dis-satisfaction with each other sexually and verbally, and it’s all made better once the lenses can be used to block out those bits of the other person that are not pleasing. Yay progress. Or is it arrested development. Whatever.
Blink to Share by Janus Bliss
I recommend as entertaining! Heroine trips (chemically) with a rock. Which is an improvement over the ex in any capacity. The rock turns out not to be a rock, and the ex-before-the-ex (hero) turns out not to be quite dead. Just mostly dead. For which he must be punished. Oh, and bad aliens were stopped from invading the Earth. And most importantly, the heroine ends up with 3 breasts.
“Space Invaders” by Catherine Rose
“…its spooky action at a distance caused by quantum
entanglement…so yeah anything is possible…” [Given that this line made it into the story, it wasn’t any surprise that the sex starts on the last 3 pgs. Naturally. -BZ]
I recommend as enjoyable/entertaining! An honest title would be, “Gynophile’s Adventures in Polygyny” or “XXXXXY Teenage Fantasy”. Heroine, paying off family debts with a lifetime indentured companion contract (to wit, sex slave with a no-death-or-dismemberment clause) is gifted to a green space merchant…Who comes from a long line of reprobates. Despite the glitz and excitement, space travel is actually super boring, so he proceeds to make her kinks his down-time study. This happens to include the zaftig Zeena-like warrior they rescue during their travels who, of course, is a sexual submissive. So, put your spacecraft on autopilot, pull on some leather, and toss a vibrator into the cage. It’s time to play…
“Freedom in the Sky” by Jaylee Coglin
He clapped his hands, a sign she’d discovered meant he was about to take off in some new direction with appalling amounts of energy.
