I’ve recently finished reading Lauren Dane’s second book in her Brown Family series. The book itself was a good read. It continued to keep me wanting to read more and see where the protagonist’s relationship lead. If you want to read my full review of the book. You can go to the reviews page and see it for yourself.
Brody Brown has always been responsible for others. After his parents’ death, he gave up a promising artistic career to care for his younger brother and sister. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, has a nice house, makes a nice living, and for the first time in years he’s on his own.
Elise Sorenson has come to Seattle with her young daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina—(and just as many years in a marriage-gone-bad)—she’s looking for neither love nor attention. But she finds both in the handsome, honest man who befriends her with no strings attached.
More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need—wild, physical passion without commitment. But it’ll take a shadow from Elise’s past to make them look beyond what they need—to what they truly desire.
Wild Blood – Naomi Lucas:
Normally, I’m not much of a science fiction romance reader. It has to be a specific type of book to get me to read it. I may like the genre to a point but not enough to call me an avid reader of it.
That being said. There are a few science fiction – romance’s that I have read that have been surprisingly good. I say surprisingly because not many satisfy my curiosity enough to open the book to it’s first page.
That wasn’t the case for Wild Blood by Naomi Lucas. Now I haven’t read the complete book yet. I’ve only just started. But from the little that I have seen, it’s made me want to read more. The dark intensity of Dommick is intriguing and tempting. While Kat’s determination and infatuation causes me to root for her to win the dangerous aliens heart.
If you’re interested you can check out Naomi Lucas website to find out more for yourself.
Dommik was a monster, a Monster Hunter, and an alpha. Part of an elite group that dealt with the horrors of the universe. At least that was what everyone at the spaceport was whispering as he walked by. A Cyborg, a hunter, a beast with eyes as dark as the pits of Hell and the stride of a predator.
Katalina was a nobody who was intimate with death. It clung to her like a shroud, It followed her like the plague, and infected her like a parasite. When she overheard that the Monster Hunter needed an assistant, she took the job. And when the Cyborg’s eyes caught hers, she knew getting closer to death might just bring her back to life.
The Cyborg didn’t scare her.
So she followed him and left fate up to chance.
Warning: mature readers only, explicit sex scenes
Book one of Cyborg Shifters, same universe as Stranded in the Stars, every book is standalone that only subtly builds off of the others.
The next book from Lauren Dane:
Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she’s needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard-won lessons. There hasn’t been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn’t mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark, and Tattooed himself.
Security professional Andrew Copeland isn’t quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He’s known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she’d been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to her is different than any attraction he’s had in the past. Determined to get Ella to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense.
While Ella’s sure he’s just being nice, the prospect of being able to touch him and gain the tools to push away the last vestiges of her fear is more than she can resist. Soon enough, Cope shows Ella his feelings are far more than friendly and re-ignites something deep inside her. Before long desire and love turn them both inside out.
I have every intention to read the next book after this one. So far I’m really enjoying the Brown Family Series. I’m currently hooked. Here’s the link to Lauren Dane’s website if you’re interested.
