Review of Taken by Her Alien Warriors by Doris O'Connor
Taken by Her Alien Warriors by Doris O'Connor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Too short. Actually it's not a short read, it's just that I would like to have read more of Gemini, Zorran, and Ornack's story. And yes, that's three names there so if you've read many of my reviews you know that I was in mini-heaven reading a ménage book. What's even better is that the men are bisexual, so that made for even more steamy reading. Yummy.
Gemini is human and was rescued by Zorran when she was a child. Despite the way his species treats alien women as no more than a convenient sex toy, he has never slept with her. In order to protect her from being taken from him and abused by other males, Zorran decides to give her to his lover Ornack. As his and Ornack's people are at war, Zorran must sneak Gemini away in order to deliver her to safety. Because Ornack's species is dying out due to conception issues, Zorran knows that Gemini will not only be safe, but she will be honored as she is capable of having children. Despite his desire to insure her safety, Zorran refuses to acknowledge his feelings for either of the people he loves and vows to himself to never return so that they can have a life together. Ornack spends the next few months earning Gem's trust and affection, until they finally consummate their marriage in one heck of a steamy scene. Of course, as hot as that scene is, it was outdone by their ménage mating scene ... oh my!
As the first novella in the series, The Warriors is off to a great start. Ms. O'Connor has combined the right amount of relationship development and hot sex for a truly enjoyable read for ménage and sci-fi romance fans. Taken by Her Alien Warriors has been added to my reread list and Ms. O'Connor has been added to my watch list. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
