No just no! This one got me mad from page one. Luckily a few things cleared up, but no no-no.
This story kind of pushed me to the point of stopping. The first two books pushed me to wonder what happens to them, but this one gets me angry at this group of misogynist men. Now that they are on the planet, the political intrigue is getting deeper as the purists wants the humans to be executed or at the very least returned to their planet. Then there is the fact that they pulled the women off Earth which is in a section of space for reptilian creatures. Those creatures are on the attack.
Eleanor caught Kade’s eye on Earth and while he wasn’t supposed to leave the area, he heard her cries and rescued her. Big problem. Kade’s engaged. The secrecy surrounding this engagement is what throws a lot of no-no-no into this story. Kade also trains the wolf-like animals on this planet and doesn’t have the gift of telekinesis. Being a mighty warrior though, he is put on protection duty of the queen, Morgan, from the last story who is pregnant with the king’s son. Mated but not married. Being engaged himself, he wants Eleanor but all he can offer is to take her as a breeder which she semi-fights.
Attracted to the male, she tries to resist, but ultimately like every other woman in these stories, she gives him to the passion. The next morning the fiance shows up and makes it known Eleanor is just the breeder, not the wife.
This is where all of it pisses me off. One, Eleanor can’t resist Kade and Kade mates Eleanor even while engaged to the other woman. Mating isn’t the same as being married. He wants it all. Maybe not, but we don’t get to see into his mind.
We learn why Kade is engaged. We learn about his brother (next book) and we learn that these women are all brainwashed by alien cock. It must be magically delicious is all I can say. Throw in a little kink and we start to run into the BDSM side of romance that I think feels pushed, wrong and forced to make the story more interesting. Again a love-hate relationship with this series. And you guessed it. She is pregnant by the end.
Oh and the purist are infiltrating the world and ready to take them all out. The battle with the reptilian race is over and won. Now just to get past the civil war coming.
