Lorn Adar has searched more than a lifetime to find his bondmate--the one woman he was born to love and the only woman who can save him from the approaching madness that threatens all unbonded males of his race. When a wormhole opens from his galaxy to Earth and the women who could hold their future, Lorn will do all in his power to not only find his mate, but show her a Universe she never knew existed. Casey Westfall's normal life changed forever when she finds the sexy leather clad man on her doorstep. One innocent kiss leads to an adventure that will span worlds and Casey will have to choose between the man who is the other half of her soul and never seeing her family or her world again.
To complicate matters Kadothians live in polyamerous family units and Lorn will have to convince his Earth bride to accept not only his love, but the love of his best friend and brothers in arms or risk the chance of losing them to either the madness or the Hive--the race of sociopathic women bent on destroying and enslaving everything in their path, but Casey can't see loving more than one man as being anything other than a sin. Lorn will have to teach his bride that she was created for both of them just as they were created only for her.
In a Universe where all is possible, the battle to protect not only his people, but his heart rests on the soul of a human woman who must face the unknown and take a leap of faith that could save or destroy them all.
Warning: This book features a galaxy where love in any and all forms is embraced including M/M, M/M/F, M/F, M/F+M/M/M, etc in scenes hot enough to melt your vibrator.
A super book. Awesome, must read, I couldn’t put it down, it was sooo good. Wish more books were like this one. Thank you for writing this one!
Casey's Warriors is a story about an alien race who do not produce females so they have to travel to other worlds to find their mates. The story behind why they don't produce females and what they need to do for protection of their people was unique and the writing was mature.
The woman are held in very high regard and seem to have all the power despite the male alien race being known for being fierce warriors. I had a hard time with this concept. It wasn't easy to keep seeing the men as warriors when they were so submissive to the woman.
The warriors need to bond with the woman to keep them from going insane or having their minds being taken control over by their enemy, which happen to be a hive of corrupted women. I personally prefer the male to be a lead so this story might not be for those who prefer that as well.
The other issue that others might have is that the women are expected to bond with not only their mates but all the men that serve under their mates. This is called a partial Bond that not only helps the men be loyal to their household but to also protect those men from the hive as well. To bond with these mem, while it doesn't have to be sex, it does have to be of a sexual nature. That was a bit much for me considering how many men this could mean.
What I did like was how in this story, the earth women had dormant powers that don't activate until they bond with their mates. It was a nice twist and I would have liked to have read more about that. It does look like the author will continue this story with other characters so maybe we'll get to read more about these dormant gifts.
