Bree never thought her dimwit act, military grade mace, cattle prod, or dumping a ton of stinky manure on Jaylan’s head would encourage his pursuit. Who knew a Coletti warlord would think of being zapped with a cattle prod as foreplay? Or a determined opponent only heightened his enjoyment of the chase?
The chase comes to an abrupt halt when the Tai-Kok attack Tucson, forcing Bree to team up with the Coletti warlord to stop them. Suddenly plucked from Earth by a crazed Tai-Kok commander, Jaylan and Bree find themselves stranded on a hostile alien world, and being tracked by a deadly Askole assassin. It’s really not the time for the two of them to fall in love.
Brunhilda… LMAO. That was Bree’s birth name. Her mother was into all things Viking, even marrying a guy named Thor. This is another awesome addition to the Coletti Warrior series. It still had everything I loved. Romantic comedy. Bree’s sharp wit and sentient beings that aren’t remotely human. One of the things that I love about the Jones’ women is that they look past the body to the being. They adopt aliens that are deadly and would send anyone else running for the hills after they peed their pants. These stories are about not only family of the blood but of these women making families as they romp around dangerous worlds, forming allies where the Coletti only saw creatures.
Bree was wonderful and funny. OMG the cattle prod. I laughed until I cried because she just kept “lighting him up”. Jaylan was a snot in the last book and I was pleased to see him get his comeuppance. Of the Coletti Warlords, I think he is the one who was more accepting of Bree’s warrior side. He gave in easier than the others which made me like him more. Bree’s adopted family, the little baby Barats (hand sized scorpion spider cross), the teenage Shani (snake with crocodile head), and the Pantos (saber-tooth tigers) were all a hoot. So much to laugh at and brighten my day. Loved it all. Highly recommended.
