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.
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.
