Marooned by Elizabeth Raines

Marooned on a tropical moon with two handsome men—one her Earth Bureau of Investigation partner—Betinsa Nungio faces the comchi, the time in her species’ lives when they must take mates or risk death.

Agent Matt Newton has hidden his attraction to his partner. Now, he has the opportunity to explore his feelings. Can he find the courage to share her with another man, one she needs to complete her transition?

Ambassador Drake Keller faces a dilemma—he’s supposed to observe other cultures, not participate in them. Yet Betinsa needs him—as she needs Matt—and the more time Drake spends with her, the more his passion grows. How can he possibly leave her behind when they are rescued?

As the trio explores their growing bond, they stumble across a terrorist group plotting to destroy Betinsa’s planet and must work together to try and save her world.

A Siren Erotic Romance

Whew, this was one hot book. Marooned is book two in the Wicked Missions series and I must say I am loving this series. I never thought I would be the type of person that fell in love with something Sci Fi but this story is more about the relationships between Matt, Drake and Betinsa than it is dealing with otherworldly characters. Don't get me wrong this story does not lack action in any way. In fact, get ready to go on a fast paced action filled ride because this book has it all.

Betinsa's character was one of my favorites because she is taken right out of her comfort zone and delves head first in one hot and steamy romance between two men. I enjoyed Matt's character in Locked In (book one) and was so glad to see that he got his own romance and with the lovely Betinsa. Matt made me laugh with the little jokes he would crack and no one would think it was funny. Don't worry Matt, I thought you were funny and laughed at every single joke. Drake's character was the typical alpha male. The tall good looking man that was hard as nails on the outside but all soft and mushy inside once it came to Betinsa. *dreamy sigh* I love Drake.

The plot line was fantastic and filled with action. Betinsa is from a culture where the woman is essentially the bread winner in the family. Her culture also expects each female to have two male soul mates, which works out fabulously for Matt, Drake and Betinsa. I can't give away too much of the action scenes but let me just say you don't want to miss the middle of the book and the furry little rat looking creatures. Especially Matt's reaction to them.

Like I said before, I really love this Wicked Missions series and can't wait to read Bounty which is book three. Luckily there are seven books so far in the series so I will always have another book to look forward to. I highly recommend Marooned even if you aren't a fan of alien beings. A fascinating read, Marooned will keep you on the edge of your seat and will certainly leave you satisfied.

True Colors by Joyce Lamb

First off, I'm just going to say that this series is definitely one of my favorites of the year. Joyce Lamb is an author whose books are on my automatic "to be read". I don't care what genre she writes, I will be a lifelong fan. I can identify with the characters, the writing style blows me away in every book and I always find myself thinking of her books long after they have been read.

Alex's character appealed to me immediately with her love of abused animals. It takes a special woman to be able to take care of rescue animals and the fact that she could relate better to the animals than to people, piqued my interest.

John Logan's character was oh so dreamy. Who wouldn't love a detective who is not afraid to put his life on the line for the woman he loves? Fighting his own demons, John has to find a way to come to terms with Alex's psychic ability.

Butch McGee was one insanely creepy character. A character I loved to hate. I found myself holding my breath through the scenes with this deranged killer. His character made this book a superb read as the entire time, I was trying to figure out his angle.

I love Anna Coreen, the lady with psychic abilities that helps the sisters through their self discovery moments. She has a strong presence through out the True books and it wouldn't be the same without her.

The plot in True Colors is gripping, hair- raising and I loved every minute of it. I could feel the hairs on the back of my neck standing up. A compelling page turner, this book has perfect pacing. The characters are meticulously developed and are easy to bond with. Each chapter leaves you hanging and I found myself reading into the wee hours of the morning just trying to see what happened next. I HIGHLY recommend True Colors to anyone who loves a solid, strong romantic suspense/thriller. Ms. Lamb is an outstanding writer and I am anxiously looking forward to reading True Shot, Sam's story.

If you would like to read the books in order, here they are:
True Vision - Charlie's story. You can buy True Vision here
True Colors - Alex's story. You can buy True Colors here
True Shot - Sam's story (out in December)

Locked In - Wicked Missions 1 by Elizabeth Raines

Leesa Bouchard hires pilots and fellow wranglers Cain Hammel and Geoff Adams to share her lucrative mission—to bring the Dreaming Death virus from the barren planet of Charos in the war torn Rhotan System to Virus Initiative Corporation on Earth.

On their return flight, they’re arrested for smuggling an “illegal” virus, despite their insistence they were hired for the job. The sentence? Quarantine—thirty days for Leesa to spend with the two men she’s fantasized about for the entire mission. As they explore their mutual attraction and nurture their growing affection, she finds herself the target of a government investigation into who contracted her to collect the deadly virus. Evidence points to terrorists from the Rhotan System who might be targeting Earth.

Can Cain and Geoff help Leesa clear her name and protect her when a government agent wants to use her as bait to capture the terrorists?

A Siren Erotic Romance

Can a futuristic Sci-Fi with one head strong woman and two drool worthy men get any hotter than this? Personally, I'm not one to get into Sci-Fi's but I have to say, this is one series that I will follow closely. Loved it. The descriptions of the surroundings throughout the book helped me to paint a vivid picture of what life was like in the world of Leesa, Cain and Geoff. Leesa's character was a favorite of mine. She is everything I look for in a leading lady. She's independent, passionate and extremely stubborn. You know when you combine those three elements, there's going to be fireworks somewhere. I instantly fell in love with both Cain and Geoff. Each was vastly different from the other and together, they made one powerful team, both in and out of the bedroom. (My personal favorite was Cain, but shhhhh don't tell, I'm not supposed to play favorites). When Cain and Geoff let their feelings for Leesa be known, the heat level goes through the roof.

A fast paced, exciting plot kept me wondering what would happen next. I can't give away anything more than what was in the blurb but you will definitely want to see what happens beyond the blurb. A captivating read, I found I couldn't put this book down. I love a good mystery and although this is a shorter novel, I found it to be highly addictive. I read Locked In in a matter of hours which is the perfect length of book for me personally. Locked In is book one in the Wicked Missions series but can also be read as a standalone. I look forward to reading more from this author and especially this series. Now excuse me while I go read Marooned, book two.
