After years as a slave to the pleasures of the powerful, Talia knows how to make a man mad with lust. But her pleasure counts for nothing–until a handsome, ruthless stranger appears. Ryder dares to look at her… to touch her… to awake in her a desire she’s never imagined. When he kidnaps her to learn her secrets, Talia vows not to let her passion take control. But soon she discovers that her captor’s intense gaze and searching hands can perform their own kind of interrogation, a sweet torture she finds impossible to resist…
I am sitting here trying to think what to write about this book and all I can think about is my husbands reaction when I explained what the book was about. Natalia is from a different planet where there are few women. The women that are there, are owned and basically sex slaves to their owners. She must parade around naked in front of her owner and be covered around anyone else. She only gets time to herself during sleep hours. Ryder is from another planet and he kidnaps her and takes her to his home. He kidnaps her initially to get information about when her owners, the high council members, plan on attacking his planet he lives on. They slowly fall in love, but quickly fall in lust with each other. As I was explaining all this to my husband, he wiggled his eyebrows and looked at me. I gave him the look of what? He then said that hmmm…a wife who is a sex slave! LOL…Sorry, we live on Earth hubby and I kind of like to think that you are my sex slave. LOL.
I liked how this story was paced and how the plot was not just sex though. It had suspense which is hard to balance in an erotica novel. I also liked how each character had their own little story throughout the book. The author wrapped up each characters story with the ending they deserve. The author certainly has a knack for writing many small stories into one novel and making it all go together.
Now, that I have found out about this author, I think I will have to look into getting some more of her books to read.
