Aurora Blake is desperate to escape the machinations of her stepfather. DaKar Volkan is a half-Martian Warlord. When these two first meet, the mating threads are sent out, but both are much too young. But DaKar doesn't forget and when they meet again, those threads tighten. Except that Aurora has some serious secrets.
I'm a fan of dystopian romances and I do like when there's aliens involved. Alison Aimes gives the story a bit of a Regency flair with the patriarchal society and women as property, which sort of takes it out of the realm of alien romance. Sort of.
Likes: Overall, I liked the story. Ms. Aimes does a good job showing us Aurora's desperation and her revulsion of both her stepfather and DaKar's half-brother. And DaKar is all sorts of growly, alpha male, which is what we look for in stories like these. And there's the added suspense as to who the serial killer is, which always makes for good storytelling. For me, the pace was decent. The punishment scene, for me, was enjoyable, but it might not be for others. I liked the intensity of it.
Dislikes: Missing communication. On both their parts, and while yes it wouldn't have driven the storyline, if the two of them had been open to honest communication, they could have helped each other. I get that it's there to drive the story, but it's one of those things where I find myself yelling at the story 'to speak up and be honest.' Or, 'listen to him!'
Overall, do I recommend it? Yes and no. I liked the story overall, and for that, yes I would. But if my dislike is a sticking point for you, then, no, don't.
