The Delight

Nothing says, ‘I love you’ and I want to play hard to get to a Coletti Warlord like sic-cing a flock of birds to crap on the guy and assuring him that he’ll never catch you as you tear off into the Arizona desert on a dirt bike.  General Saul Jones, US Marine General and hybrid Coletti thrills to the chase and know he’s met his match in feisty Annie with the incredible psychic powers and a touch of witch magic.  Easy and fun, spicy and exciting, each new installment in the Coletti Warlords series are addictive and engaging.

Review

Sassing Saul is the tenth of the Coletti Warlord sci-fi romances.  The series works best when read in order as Saul has been a prominent character since the beginning and Annie was introduced in the previous book.  The worldbuilding and current plot grows through the series and these later books assume the reader has read the series in order.

So, yes, our handsome silver fox General Saul, head of the wild and rambunctious Jones clan all gifted psychics and the best defense earth has against alien invaders with a taste for the flesh of earthlings.  He along with the other earth leaders has allied with the Coletti- a race of warring and pillaging warlords who got themselves into a bit of difficulty when their conquering, marauding ways landed them with a war torn world and a dying race if they can’t find compatible females.  Enter stage left the Jones clan.

Saul and the other Jones have sacrificed being completely human to keep their planet and people safe, but now it is Saul’s turn to find some happiness in it all- if he can get the sassy, wary Annie to give love one more chance.  Unlike the Coletti, he understands full well that earth women will resist being tossed over a guy’s shoulder and hauled off as his.  He wants the infernal woman to want him back so courtship is in order.  If only the Earth First psychos and the Rodan would stop attacking and plotting long enough for him to have a nice dinner, a dance, or a walk on the beach with the gorgeous woman.

Annie has been courted and wooed once in her life already.  She gave the wrong guy her heart and he cleaned out all her money, cheated on her with an old widow, and later tried to turn her in for bounty on psychic women.  Never again, she insists.  She tossed aside the rose-colored glasses and went to war against the alien invaders earning the nick name Grim Reaper for her kill count.  Now, here she is again being chased by a determined male.  After a while, she wonders if he might just be different and worth being caught.

Saul and Annie’s story was full of the usual madcap fun and excitement of sexy flirting during the chase, action-packed fights with the alien enemy and humans who are little more than traitors and terrorists against their own race, and an overall good time.  There was lots of time with previous couples- the girls night outs were the best- and my favorite scary alien, Adan, ready to eat the bad guys or out draw them on the street of Old Tuscon, whatever comes first.

These always read fast and fun for me.  Definitely a guilty pleasure and one of my most anticipated reads of the year.  Those who enjoy zany and spicy fun in their sci-fi romance should definitely give this series a go.

Side note:  The first two books are out of print, but readers will have no trouble beginning with Vexing Voss and going forward from there.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Challenges Met

New Release #70

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Gotta love some sexy flirting during something happening that has me running for my life LOL. I love when a book can be a fast-read and still very enjoyable.

Haha! Yeah, not sure I’d be in the mood for some nooky or romance when on the run from aliens and bad guys, but I’m not a tough girl. 🙂 Fun reading, though, especially the banter.

Oh wow, I thought this was a contemporary but the premise of the series has me curious. Too bad books are missing. Maybe the author will buy their rights back and republish on Amazon.

Yeah, the Vegas skyline on the cover can be tricky, but this is set on earth and Vegas plays a huge role in the story. 🙂
She has gone through no end of trouble trying to get those first two books back after the company closed. I won .pdf copies so I could read the out of print ones. But, I had no trouble starting with Vexing Voss which was the third one.

That publisher went out of business and I’m still dealing with the legal mess. I give those books away in my Facebook contests.

I like the sounds of Annie the Grim Reaper. She sounds great. This just got added to my wish list.

Oh man, she’s a hoot, Mary. All the gals in this series are. You’d love that they have alien spiders for friends the way you love your insects. 🙂

I love all of Ms Gail’s books but the Coletti Warlords hold a special place in my heart. Not sure if it’s the kick-azz heroines, the cocky Warlords that not only make you want them but also want to kick their butts or the fast pace and enjoyable read. I think her series all contain a good balance of the 3 F’s… fun, fights and… well… you know! I highly recommend following her book pages if for nothing else but a chance to win copies of the first two books to see how it all started! That’s how I got… Read more »

Yay! Fellow fan, Lisa. I think I got Vexing Voss with a gift card when it caught my eye and then I went back to join the Facebook page and win copies of the others. 🙂

Scifi romance sounds awesome. I’ll have to start at the beginning. Great review!

I find it a fun genre. 🙂

Oooh. I do love a silver fox. LOL

It sounds like this series is action packed, Sophia. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

Great review.

Haha! Saul is something else. Definite drool-worthy. 🙂

This does sound like a lot of fun! I have a special weakness for a silver fox, too! I’d start at the beginning. When you say out of print, do you mean you can’t get an e-copy either? I’ll check around and at my libraries online. Wonderful review, Sophia Rose! 🙂

They only place I was able to get copies of the first two books was through giveaways on the Coletti Warlords’ Facebook page. I don’t think they can be found right now. But, you truly can start with book three and get the idea. They are zany fun. 🙂

Rachel @Waves of Fiction

Yeah, I looked and they’re no longer available, and not at my libraries either. Good to know. I’ll start there. 🙂

Sophia Rose

There’s a recap of how things got the way they are at the beginning and you’re pretty intuitive so you should be all right if you give it a go.

Mhmmm I am curious. 😉

My work is done. 🙂

This sounds like a fun and steamy sci-fi romance. Too bad the first two books in the series are out of print. Great Review Sophia!

They are definitely fun, madcap SFR. What I advice folks is try Vexing Voss the third one and if you love it, then join her FB group and win .pdf copies of the first two.
