Dr. Whitney Washington is a Xeno-zoologist living on the Kindred Mother Ship and she has a big problem--she has a crush on her bodyguard. Unfortunately, the big Beast Kindred who comes with her to dangerous planets to protect her clearly doesn't return her interest...or does he?
Rafe is a warrior with a past--a bad one. He has been hurt before when dealing with females and he doesn't intend to repeat the experience. But it's hard to ignore Whitney's beauty and bubbly personality. Still, he's determined to try until an unexpected turn in their latest trip to a new planet for research changes everything.
Forced to land on an unknown world, Whitney and Rafe find themselves among a group of feral humanoids who seem to be about as smart as house cats. Soon they are mistaken for pets by the huge aliens who live on the planet and taken into captivity as a "mating pair." But what will happen when Rafe and Whitney actually have to mate in order to escape?

Pairing With The Protector
Pairing With The Protector: A Kindred Tales Novel (Brides of The Kindred). - Evangeline Anderson
This new addition to the Kindred Tales Series has some of the most original and imaginative scenarios and world building yet. Whitney is a scientist that collects specimens from other worlds and has a strong attraction to her “protector” Rafe. Of course he can’t return the crazy draw he has to the female his job is to protect as he has a secret past . The guilt he bears as he finds his attraction and love for Whitney gets a bit overdone but the entertaining story keeps everything moving along.
As with all missions things can go wrong and an unreliable wormhole finds the couple on a strange world of giants that resemble elephants as the dominant specials and the beast Kindred and Whitney are small and doll size, even clllected as “Tweedles”.
They are discovered, captured and kept as “pets”. Of course they are expected to “breed” as well as behave somewhat like pet hamsters.
Despite their situation Whitney and Rafe have to escape, somehow fix the spaceship, get thru a wild wormhole and somewhere in all that they fall in love and get an HEA.
The story is not a part of the main Kindred series but part of the Kindred novels, although happily, many of the character from the series do make appearances.
It’s an enjoyable rollercoaster story with all the adventure, excitement , sizzling hot scenes and crazy “surprises”, the author is so well know for.

Fe Fi Fo Fum
This author continues to amaze me with the lengths she can take her imagination. In this book she takes us on an adventure with an unexpected detour, to a land of giants. These giants make her previous ones look like babies. When her current couple end up as mating pets to them, they not only find their true feelings toward each other, but that they work well together. I really enjoyed this book and the HEA this couple are able to find. I can’t wait to read the author’s next book and see where her imagination will take us next.
