They were created, betrayed and nearly eradicated as a species.
The rest they did to themselves.
The Tellox are known as the finest warriors in every known galaxy, animalistic, powerful and infinitely hard to kill. They heal from nearly any wound and do not age. But they have no females left, and with the destruction of their bloodmates so long ago, nothing worth fighting for.
So they wander, they battle, and they hunt.
Most don't even remember what it is they search for, until Commander Creeg of the Tellox is exploring a new uninitiated world and chances upon the scent of new prey.
A small Earth female named Sara is about to change everything.
This is the start of a series and while the characters in this book will be in the next book and there is a continuation of story, each book will present a new romance to be enjoyed.
This is an alien abduction, fated mate romance with strong language and explicit sexual situations. Enjoy!
Well, I was warned! The synopsis did say that although each book presents a new romance, the story will continue throughout the series. I just never thought that Ms. Lucille would ever have me wanting to chunk my ipad at a wall when the story ended but didn’t. In other words, I was left hanging in a huge way. Huge enough that I’ll be waiting for some more releases to happen before I dive back into this story. This in no way means I didn’t enjoy Creeg. It was heartbreaking and exciting, especially towards the end.
Sara, a young woman who’s had to raise her younger sisters, is abducted by an alien. She immediately shows herself as smart, loyal, caring and extremely brave. Faced with losing everything, her family, her home, her planet, even her humanity, she held up admirably but when biological imperatives are involved, you know that no matter how hard she fights it she’s going down.
Creeg, I had a harder time with. I did not like what he did nor did I like how hard he worked on getting her to submit to him to complete the mating. It just didn’t set right with me for some reason. Even so, I felt for the guy. I mean his entire race’s future was on his shoulders plus he had that whole biological thing riding him hard, so I found myself trying to give him a pass.
Usually with a Kelly Lucille book, I have no problem with the sexy times. She can write one heck of a hot scene, but here it just didn’t work. One reason was because he had to work so hard at it and the other is because so much emphasis was based on the blood mate/biological imperative thing, I had no reason to think these two even liked each other under all those mating pheromones.
With the issues between Creeg and Sara getting together, it’s good there were lots of other things to get my sci-fi loving self excited. I saw immediately that when a race of warriors who have been hundreds of years without mates suddenly finds one on earth, things may not go well for earth. Especially when you take into consideration the current ruler of Tellox. When this story is complete, I have the feeling it’s going to be a damn good one. It’s going to be hard, but I’m going to have to pass until the storyline itself is complete.
