another instalment from the brides of the kindred.
This one focused on Chloe a plus sized girl held prisoner inside a ‘fat shaming’ diet house and Tark a beast kindred with a speech impediment. On a mission to find a jewel to help him fix his broken voice... he stumbles across Chloe who is actually a speech therapist. Tark is focused on an immediate fix and accepts Chloe’s offer to help him find the jewel.
Whilst I adore this series and the concept for this book, it just didn’t hit the spot for ...more
Better than her previous books in the series but not as good as the first ones
I liked this on and it had less unnecessary drama. The characters were hot and I love the humanizing factor of the guys. Never thought stuttering could be hot by it kinda is. For a while I was looking hope in the series as I thought it was severely loosing quality. But now it’s getting back up there.
Another great book by Evangeline Anderson.
I just love reading about the Kindreds. When it come to the Kindred there is not one I do not like. They all have something about them that makes them unique and they all have a heart of gold. But I do have to say the Beast Kindred is one of my favorite and that was what Tark was.
Tark was one that had some struggles and these struggles caused insecurities and frustrations. His struggle was that he stuttered. As we read about Tark we get to see the hard ...more
Tarc needs to find the jewel to cure him. Chloe was kidnapped and stuck in a smart house where it was programmed to "help" her loose weight even if she does not want to. When Tarc comes to find the jewel can Chloe help him? This was a funny and sexy book. I am not sure how Evangeline does it. She is a great story teller and all the Kindred books though from the same universe are different and fresh. This is a great read. Thanks again Evangeline :)
I'm so glad this author is still bringing us her fabulous Kindred guys. If honest I'd been a little dismayed at the thought of her continuing to diversify them too much as even though I know it's not hard science I still want to believe that perhaps everything she dreams up is possible. So this story about a beast kindred felt right to me as let's face it as gorgeous and loving as these alpha males are there's clearly only so many species that they could procreate with. Now that being off my che ...more
One of the better Kindred Tales stories. Tark's affliction has caused him to suffer his whole life and he hopes to find the jewel prophesied to help him. Chloe has been kidnapped by the Commercians and is going to be sold to the highest bidder. Thankfully, the Goddess brings these two together and sets them on a journey. Some smoking hot scenes and a lot of internal struggles and a trip to the Resort of Resonant Oneness are just some of the highlights on this couples path to bonding. A couple of ...more
Ahhh... I love, love , LOVED this book!! I've always been a huge fan of the Kindred series and one of the reasons why I love it is because the author isn't afraid of writing about main characters with differences. Not everyone is perfect. We aren't all size 5's. Everyone has scars and imperfections of some sort. Some people have a disability, they may be blind or deaf and some people have survived abuse. What I love about this series is that the author doesn't shy away from creating heroes and h ...more
