Title: Mission: Guardian Angel (Veslor Mates #2) Author: Laurann Dohner Genre: Paranormal, Sci-fi, Romance My rating:3 of 5 stars
I don’t get why Drak is such a popular alien name, but it is, and we just have to accept that Drak is always going to be a hot as hell alien lover.
This Drak is part of the Veslor grouping on Defcon Red. Veslors are kickass elite warriors who don’t take names but allow local deities to sort the fallen bad guys’ bodies out. You don’t want to be on the wrong side of them–but the treatment they receive is beyond terrible, and their human Spec-Ops Team Lead is a prejudice douche. Let me summarize: life on Defcon Red sucks for them even though they make life better for everyone and work four times as hard as the human teams.
Enter Abby (let’s not forget that Laurann Dohner can’t help but name her heroine’s names that end with A-I-E-O-U or Y) after surviving the Gorison Traveler Incident she is a Veslor champion. She caught wind that the Defcon Red Veslors are treated poorly, and she manipulated everyone and everything to get on that ship to investigate, and she won’t go anywhere until those warriors are treated like the prized warriors they are.
I have fallen head over heels for Anton over my many readings of His Purrfect Mate. He becomes more and more dear to me each time I pick up this Mate Set novel.
The Harris Pack is one of the strongest shifter clans in the region. Alpha Elroy guides his family and pack with a firm hand. Elroy holds his sons up to the example he leads, to be warriors and protectors. He expects Anton to be his heir, ready to lead the Harris wolves when Alpha steps down. His eldest son Grady is a product of a relationship prior to Elroy’s mating with Eve and would never be an option in Eve’s eyes. She thinks only her sons should inherit. Not only does Grady’s origins make him unfit in her eyes he chose a human as a mate which Eve finds sacrilege. She wants Anton to make a strong alliance to bind the Harris Pack to another powerful one. All her sons need to make strong alliances when they mate and ONLY with WOLVES. Eve will do anything to make that happen, including murder, mayhem, and betrayal. Continue Reading
I am very shallow when it comes to books. I see a pretty face and I’m all over it. Don’t get me wrong I’ve dated many books that were great who weren’t the most handsome or beautiful on the outside but I’m sure no one can debate the fact that when you are shopping the eye-stoppers are the ones that get you to read their stats and get their digits over that of the nice book with the bland cover every time. Don’t try to act like you have more depth than the rest of us–you are just as guilty as I am when it comes to a book with some gloss and smart design. If it’s dressed up like someone took care with it and spent time getting it ready you can tell and you can’t help but look, even if you ARE happy with the book you are currently reading at the moment. Readers don’t mate for life with the books we meet so no one holds it against us when we slut ourselves around from book to book so don’t worry, peeps, no one is going to shame you for doing what comes natural. Look at those covers, baby!
February 4th, 2014 is a date to mark your calendar; Laurann Dohner will be giving her loyal readers one more Cyborg to dream about on that red-letter day. Blackie, known for his loyal following of Cyborg Council dictates, even when they have been cruel, brutal and heartless is about to have all those deeds catch up with him. The woman who freed him from Earth, the one he could never forget, has just been reunited with him and she is one of the secrets the Council would do anything to keep quiet. Haunting Blackie is book 8 in the Cyborg Seduction Series published by Ellora’s Cave.
I somehow managed to over ARC my Ellora’s Cave book requests. I requested a book, Widow’s Walk by Genevieve Ash, which then missed getting transferred to my Kindle and I’m behind a book. So I’m going to have to fix this before Haunting Blackie by Laurann Dohner comes out and I have erotic book back up. That sounds like some sort of unpleasant, icky medical condition, it’s something I really need to take care of.
I have to say that again.
I’ve reviewed enough Laurann Dohner books to have established my fangirl status and I’ve waxed poetic about New Species Series often enough to show my bias to it as well. When Laura from Ellora’s Cave emailed me the synopsis for this book as an ARC that was available for review I sent her a reply that said, “Please! Please! Please!” I might have fallen in love with her a little when she sent me the book. ~Yes, I am one of those women who love you for what you can give me and not for who you are. =P
The first Laurann Dohner book I read was Mate Set and I did not like it. I actually thought it was flat out bad. Mika was pretty much a box of rocks kind of smartness in my opinion and Grady I just plan did not like.
But I had heard so many really good things that when I picked up Fury and I didn’t really have any of that darkness coloring my opinion and thankfully my disappointment for Mate Set was put aside while I dug in and devoured her New Species, Cyborg Seduction and Zorn Warrior books. Oddly, I had a weird hang up about her Riding the Raines series and there was no good reason for it. On a whim the other night I was on a .99 Amazon book crawl and I wanted to see if the pre-order on True was available yet and I just decided to buy and read Propositioning Mr. Raine. Laurann, honey… Brass who? I want me a Raine man.
Makin’ the Love Monday! Oh mah gawds! It’s 9pm and I don’t even have the review done yet. I totally fell down on the job. It’s almost Makin’ the Love Tuesday Morning. Not that makin’ the love on Tuesday mornings is wrong–just it’s important to have some follow through on commitments. I’m commited to makin’ my love on Mondays. I’m rigid. And I’m also late. And to be really sticking honest–I have already finished writing the Any Day That Ends in YA which I consider my Tuesday post.
The reason this is a late post is that I really didn’t want to review Moon by Laurann Dohner for today. I wanted to do another book but L-I-F-E beefed my day and this is what I have. I was hoping to reserve a Laurann Dohner review for when True was released. There is really no universal law that says I can’t do more than one review by one author on my blog, even if I feel as if that is some sort of evil nepotism. The world will not collapse if I do this now and True when it comes out. The worse thing that could possibly happen is that I will piddle a little now and then piddle a little later instead of one piddle all alone.
