Faking an engagement to an alien to get a story? Absolutely. What could go wrong?
I sign up for the Intergalactic Matchmaker Initiative to get a story. Theelusive story about the only known alien planet in order to get my dream job. That’s it. But to go to Strorix, I need an alien match. It is the only way humans are allowed. My visit is temporary, though, because my career on Earth is the main focus of my life.
Commander Rune isn’t interested in a bride. But by a twist of fate, we enter into a fake engagement. According to our contract, we have one month to decide if our match is compatible. Which means I have one month to get the story I need before we call things off and I return home.
But like all things in my life, nothing goes as planned. Always the wallflower, Rune’s touch becomes something I crave, forcing me to question my priorities. Through my research, I learn hidden secrets about the relationship between the ed’ek and humans from the past. Which leads me to believe there’s more to this Matchmaker Initiative than I originally thought.
This standalone sci-fi romance novel features steamy scenes on an alien planet, strong, alpha alien warriors, and a guaranteed HEA. This is the first book in a brand-new series!
Luna Kingsley writes steamy sci-fi and paranormal romance. She loves a happy ending more than chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream on top! When she’s not writing she’s attempting to keep up with her two active boys on all of their adventures. With her faithful rescue dog at her side, she’s dreaming up “out of this world” romances with sexy aliens who are irresistible.
It all started with a munch, a meetup for the kink-minded. How was Luna supposed to know that it would change her life forever?
A play party.
A Dom that sets her passion aflame.
After a string of failed vanilla relationships leaves her feeling unfilled, Luna Weir decides to give the fetish scene one last shot. But with her one and only experience as a submissive leaving much to be desired, she has little hope that the lifestyle is her answer. So when she gives the local scene one final try in the form of a casual meetup for the kink-minded, the last thing she expects is to be pulled back into the world of ropes and commands.
But that is precisely where she meets Jacob Dakota—Mr. Tall, Dark and entirely Dominant. The experienced Dom commands respect from other Dominants and desire from the subs in the community who frequent The Playgrounds, a local fetish club. And when Jacob takes her under his wing, Luna senses he wants something more beyond the careful words and veiled glances.
Now she must figure out whether her feelings for Jacob are enough for her to take a leap of faith and relinquish control. Because a simple yes will bind her to him, heart and soul.
When her contract with her Dom is about to expire and her past comes knocking, Luna must make the right moves or risk losing her heart and her soul.
On the surface, Luna Weir leads a perfectly normal life, but behind closed doors, she surrenders control to someone else—Jacob Dakota, who is sexy, charming and entirely dominant. The problem is that they only agreed to this power dynamic for a limited time.
Jacob has never taken on training a submissive for more than three years at a time. However, as their end date draws near, he finds himself more reluctant to let go of Luna than he’d expected. To make matters worse, Luna’s past returns in the form of the charismatic Bryan Walsh, her original Dom, who offers her another choice—to become his after her contract with Jacob expires. But there are secrets between the two of them that not even she can explain.
With the future of their relationship unknown and a suspicious Dom waiting in the shadows, Luna’s will to submit and Jacob’s ability to lead are both tested like never before. Now they must decide if what they feel for each other is strong enough to hold them together beyond their contractual terms—for the measure of a Dominant is how willing their submissive is to serve.

Fierce women and sensitive men fill her stories while she examines social norms and challenges conventional tropes of the genre through her craft. She is the recipient of the 2021 inaugural Good Sex Awards in the category of Erotic Touch. Born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada, she enjoys writing about both cultures.
In addition to being an author, she is also a techie, a graphic designer, a mother, a lover, a fighter and a little bit of everything else in between. When she’s not typing away madly on her phone and running into poles, she enjoys copious amounts of tea, way too many sugary treats and as many sci-fi / fantasy / paranormal TV shows as she can sneak in time to watch.
The Collapse took my rights away. But it’s my heart that will leave me truly powerless.
Somehow, I’m still alive. So are the gruff, dangerous men I’ve found myself strangely at home with. The Steel Demons escaped execution only to find they’ve been betrayed by one of their own. Once an unbreakable brotherhood, tension and distrust grows between them.
Meanwhile I’m stuck between a rock and Reaper’s hard place.
I should have known better than to fall for the green-eyed, rough-handed president. I knew a man like him would only hurt me. When he drops hints about sharing me with his two best friends, that says enough about what he thinks I am–an object to be passed around, just like every other woman after the Collapse.
The only question is, can I find the power to walk away?
Rachel VINE VOICE 5.0 out of 5 stars I love the Steel Demons MC Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2019 Verified Purchase Powerless pulled a number of emotions from me, it was sort of like a fast motorcycle ride through a winding canyon. There's a lot of steam in this installment (which Ms. Ash always does well), some mystery over a betrayer within the MC, all the complexity of figuring out where Mari stands with Reaper but also Jandro and Gunner, and then Shadow...oh Shadow, who I want to wrap up in a giant blanket hug and keep him safe and warm forever (which he'd hate). I was so wrapped up in the plot of Powerless and the flow of tension and events. The ending is not a cliffhanger per se, however there's a big information reveal from a character that made me almost gasp. I loved this second book in the Steel Demons MC series and I'm really excited to see where things go from here and how Ms. Ash continues to develop these characters. This series has been refreshing and different and I definitely recommend!
Ashley R. 5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend (cue annoying squee sounds and gushing review) Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2019 Verified Purchase Omg! Omg! Omg! The awesomeness continues. There are definitely still rollercoaster emotion moments, but the number of wow, holy crap, wtf, and hell yes moments sucked me and in kept me reading. I feel like I should insert sound effects here also to emphasize how much I liked the second book in this series. ::squee:: ::clapping hands:: ::jumping up and down in excitement::
Mari has a lot of pondering to do about the men around her and what she wants for her future (and from them). Sheol has started to feel like home, but life is always uncertain in this crazy messed up world she lives in, and even her strong-willed and powerful MC she’s found herself tied to is not without enemies. Threats abound from without - and possibly from within.
There were a few characters and scenarios I was especially curious about after reading the first novel. Some of those were fleshed out more, some still dangle hints and possibilities, and some new curiosities have arisen with book two.
Oh... And just wait until you get to the Epilogue...
FANCHON 4.0 out of 5 stars So much better than the first book Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2021 Verified Purchase This book was a definite improvement over the first one. A little Sons of Anarchy, a little handmaid’s tale, with a little side of magic thrown in there. And a dash of hotness. This was a quick enjoyable read, and has me looking forward to the next book. Mari was far more likeable in this book, although while they’re fleeing on motorcycles during an ambush in which they are actively being shot at, she still cried out “I need to help the wounded!” Like she actually expected Jandro to stop the motorcycle and let her off to start tending to the casualties? Literally while they are being shot at? It was a strange juxtaposition, as later she seemed intelligent and levelheaded while taking care of all of their wounded back at their compound. And again while educating everyone on preventative health and the services she could provide. Strange. But she’s definitely coming across the stronger in this book.
I love how you can actually see the differences in all the male characters. Sometimes in RH books, The character development isn’t really there and they are all interchangeable. That is definitely not the case here. It’s brilliant. They all have distinct personalities, and I feel emotionally invested in each of them. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it develops in the coming books.
Overall a fun intriguing read, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

Do you remember the old advertisement for Lay’s potato chips? The tagline was “Nobody can eat just one!” I don’t normally read MC books, but this series combines both the MC with the Dystopian troupe. Once I got started, I had to read them all!
The Collapse changed everything. Good men became killers. Strong women became property. And every day turned into a fight for survival.
I once dreamed of becoming a nurse. That dream went up in flames the same day I graduated nursing school, when women were banned from holding any kind of medical license.
Now as an unlicensed medic, I travel what was once the southwestern United States, trading medical services for food, transportation, and shelter with the hopes of reaching Canada.
Because the United States is no more. And the lawless land that’s replaced it is a deadly place for a woman.
My worst fear comes true when I’m captured by the Steel Demons MC, the most ruthless biker gang in the Southwest. These men thrive on the violence and chaos brought on by the Collapse, and they’re eager to unleash it all on me.
It doesn’t even matter that the President’s dog likes me. I’m as good as dead.

Heroine~ 4/5 Strong-minded and feisty However, it is slightly puzzling to me that 3 years after women's rights were taken away, Mariposa still seems quite naive - especially for someone who has been traveling as an unprotected, single woman. No weapons on her? And her internal thoughts, in the beginning, border on being "high school-ish" when dealing with the men. But once Mari becomes more acquainted with the men, it's like the author hit her stride and Mari's character becomes the intelligent and strong-willed person she should have been from the beginning.
Emotion felt by reader ~ 5/5
Dark themes (non-con, abuse, torture) No. The heroes in this book are firmly against non-con. There is a scene where there is miscommunication and misunderstandings, but it's handled really well and it'll make sense how this scene occured. I promise, there's no non-con.

Rachel VINE VOICE 5.0 out of 5 stars This may be my favorite Crystal Ash book yet... Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2019 Verified Purchase I started Lawless late at night, thinking that I'd be able to read a few chapters before I fell asleep. Ha! I could not put my Kindle down and at one point my husband woke up enough to ask if I was going to sleep at all to which I responded, "I'm almost done, just a little bit left..." I finished in the early morning hours and I regret nothing because I think this may be my favorite of Ms. Ash's books! Mariposa is a strong FMC but she's living in a society that no longer values women so she's also vulnerable and cautious. I really liked that her skills lie in a practical area (medical training) and that she follows a moral code even if others don't necessarily. The guys each stand out and I'm dying to know more about them as the series progresses. This is a multiple POV book and it's always fun to see inside the guys' heads and what's going on. Here, it definitely helps because post-Collapse, it's not realistic that the guys would immediately open up and spill their life stories/feelings. As usual for Ms. Ash's books - there's a wonderful balance of action, drama, and steam. I'm so excited to dive more into this series and see what happens in the next book!
Maria Arnold 5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic start to Steel Demons MC!!! Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2019 Verified Purchase I always love Crystal Ash's book. Lawless didn't disappoint me one bit!
Set in a time where the world we know it collapse, no such thing as women's rights and only the strong survives and takes what they want.
Mariposa just graduated from medical school to be a nurse, but with the world the way it is, to be a nurse... there's no such thing. Traveling west Mariposa seeks to find a place where she can be a medic. By a chance meeting, she meets four very hot, sexy and dangerous men. Meet Reaper, Gunner, Jandro and Shadow... the Steel Demons MC. And boy are they hot!
I was taken from the very first chapter. Mariposa is a strong woman, who seeks to find her place in a world that suppresses women. The men of the Steel Demons....they're hot, dangerous and everyone avoids them if they're smart. A definite must read. I love the interaction between them all and dang, I would love to take them all home with me! Even Hades and Horus. I can't wait to read the next book!!
I think what originally drew me to this series was the many references to the horses. At heart, I’m still that young girl who loves horses. After starting the first book, it was like eating peanuts, I just couldn’t stop!
Following his King’s orders means abandoning his newfound love.

On their way, Swannoc’s group encounters Wolfram, and he decides to go out of his way as he cannot leave the beautiful woman and her group of children alone.
Soon Wolfram will discover that among the children Swannoc protects, hides the Kings’ most valuable secret, the child Wolfram is looking for!
Those that would use the boy to destroy the King are now closing in and Wolfram will have to take a tough choice as there is not enough time to complete the orders and at the same time save his newfound love!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this extension of the Ross series- now it's the ladies of Brough Castle! More please!!!!
Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2020
Oh, my goodness this was such a great read. I love the tone of these books- similar to the Ross sisters- and they make an appearance in this one too, which I loved! Great scene setting, exceptionally fun characters that you don't want to say goodbye too. At times you will laugh, (Swan sings when she is afraid) then you will sigh with happiness, then get into the action of a battle with these strong women who don't even have proper weapons! In the end a lovely, sweet romance with a worthy hero and heroine. Interesting setting around the tip of Scotland with all the bogs.
Loved the big black horses in this one, and their names-Dummy, Inch and Teeth! I love how she includes horses, what girl doesn't love horses! Loved the burping dog Beans and the children who helped and cheered on Swan. Fascinating to read how Wolf who was fiercely loyal to his king and the errand the king sent him on, fell in love with Swan and the children and chose love in the end. I can't wait to read about Kaithria and Neely, and hope Cat McKay has a story too. I just love these and want more in this style! They aren't dark, they are happy, and empowering and loving, adding some humor here and there, and filled with action and strong friendships and horses and always a wonderful romance with a hero to sigh over. I have read some of the others by Alisa and didn't care for them, but the Ross sisters and now the ladies of Brough are far and above my favorites. I wish they came in hard copy. I like to keep a hard copy version of my favorite books- Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood and now the Ross sister series extending into this one! Love Love Love. I read this in one sitting as I couldn't put it down! MORE PLEASE!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highlander's Fierce Wolf by Alisa Adams
Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2020
I read the series out of order, so I had heard about Wolf and Swan. Their love story did not disappoint.
Both were strong characters, given witty dialogue by Ms. Adams. I smiled a lot and really enjoyed the romp through the bogs and desolate northern Scotland.
The supporting characters were equally well developed. I didn't care for Neely at first thinking for not helping. It amused me that her horse, Teeth, kept nipping at her hair and clothing. It wasn't until I read "Highlander's Heart of Steel", that I understood her better.
As Swan leads the 3 women, 6 orphans and an old man to safety with only a pest cutter and a wolf hound for defense, there is adventure, friendship, danger, and of course romance. Will Wolf decide love is more important than following the Kong's orders.
I love where Ms. James seems to be taking this series. The origin of the shifters is definitely different. It’s not the first Shifter Mafia book I’ve read, but she adds a good twist on it!

My family has been making single malt whiskey for centuries and has a world-renowned reputation.

“The Pact” is the second book in the ‘Syndicate Masters’ series by Delta James. Strong characters, drama, intrigue, passion and the paranormal excitement of shifters combine in this fast-paced story. You can read and enjoy this book as a standalone.
Lord Gavan Drummond is the head of the Gallogass Syndicate in Scotland. Although it’s a mafia and a criminal organization, he has his own strict moral code of right and wrong. He and his clan also have a huge ancestral secret . And, along with his vast array of properties, legitimate businesses, and not so legitimate businesses, he owns the majority interest in Club Termonn, a BDSM lifestyle club. Blaise Munro was orphaned when an accident killed her parents. She was raised by her maternal grandfather. He raised her with love and with his knowledge of the family business, the Kilted Fire distillery is on Isle of Skye in Scotland, which is also where Castle Cat-Sith is located – the ancestral home of Gavan Drummond.
A dramatic event in her life connects Gavan and Blaise in unexpected and complicated ways that increase the attraction between them from a low-key simmer to a blazing inferno. Additional drama reveals itself as unknown persons are after Blaise and her distillery. She and Gavan enter into an intense D/s relationship with wildly rough (but consensual) physical intimacy. I thought a few of the secondary characters were very good, particularly Vera, Hamish and Dougal. There is a nice balance of the predictable and the unexpected. There are also little entertaining nuggets of familiarity when mention is made of places or characters from other books in other series by the author. I’m looking forward to meeting the next Master in the Syndicate.

An oblivious man. An order from the King. A love that can never be.
Ina is the youngest of the four Ross sisters and the only one who has not found her happily ever after yet. Although being the most petite of the four, she is a fierce warrior who intimidates all men who want to marry her.
When a handsome young Prince comes to the castle riding his beautiful stallion ordered by the King to marry young Ina,everyone thinks she found her very own fairy tale.
But Ina cannot stand him.
She instead falls for a huge man named Beiste who came riding an exhausted horse dressed in tatters and without remembering anything! This strange man, despite being wounded, before falling unconscious, he asked her to take care of his horse and nothing for himself. Ina had never met such a selfless man before.
Being one of a kind herself too, her rebellious character pushes her to act reckless and try to escape her fate. Life is no fairy tale though, so she gets in deadly danger.
When all hope seems lost the mysterious stranger will wake up from oblivion and any man standing in his way will have to flee.
But no man can defy the orders of the King. It will take a Beast to do that.

Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2019
This is my 8th story by this author and she is becoming a favorite of mine.
We are treated to humor, suspense, twists and interesting main and secondary character's. Romance builds slowly and this is a clean story with only kisses.
The blurb gives too much away so you figured out who the villain is and who is the Prince, but still an interesting story.
I loved the strength of the sister's and even though part of a series, can be a stand alone. But, I enjoyed the other stories too.
My only problem with the story our H has broken ribs and within days he is rowing a boat and knocking a door down - lol.
No cheating, no cliffhanger, HEA, romance and a story I hated to end. I can't improve on the blurb, just recommending this story and author. (ljb

What an amazing read!! Having read several other books in this series, I knew some of the characters in the story and looked forward to getting to know them even better. But the rebellious nature of Ina matched up with the strong, knowledgeable Bieste who, even with amnesia understands honor and loyalty to protect others, makes for an amazing tale of family bonds, greed, deceit, and love. Add in the wonderful two characters of the aunts and the needed humorous relief keeps everything sane. Great story by a very talented author!
