Book Description

August 1, 2009
After years as a slave to the pleasures of the powerful, Talia knows how to make a man mad with lust. But her pleasure counts for nothing - until a handsome, ruthless stranger appears. Ryder dares to look at her...to touch her...to awake in her a desire she's never imagined. When he kidnaps her to learn her secrets, Talia vows not to let her passion take control. But soon she discovers that her captor's intense gaze and searching hands can perform their own kind of interrogation, a sweet torture she finds impossible to resist...

About the Author

Shelli read her first romance at the age of eleven. It wasn't until many years later that she decided to pursue writing stories of her own. By then she acknowledged the voices in her head didn't make her crazy, they made her a writer. She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her young daughter and is actively involved in her local RWA chapter. When not writing you may find her enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends, or wasting time surfing celebrity gossip sites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sexy read from a talented writeer! December 10, 2009
I am sitting here trying to think what to write about this book and all I can think about is my husbands reaction when I explained what the book was about. Natalia is from a different planet where there are few women. The women that are there, are owned and basically sex slaves to their owners. She must parade around naked in front of her owner and be covered around anyone else. She only gets time to herself during sleep hours. Ryder is from another planet and he kidnaps her and takes her to his home. He kidnaps her initially to get information about when her owners, the high council members, plan on attacking his planet he lives on. They slowly fall in love, but quickly fall in lust with each other. As I was explaining all this to my husband, he wiggled his eyebrows and looked at me. I gave him the look of what? He then said that hmmm...a wife who is a sex slave! LOL...Sorry, we live on Earth hubby and I kind of like to think that you are my sex slave. LOL.

I liked how this story was paced and how the plot was not just sex though. It had suspense which is hard to balance in an erotica novel. I also liked how each character had their own little story throughout the book. The author wrapped up each characters story with the ending they deserve. The author certainly has a knack for writing many small stories into one novel and making it all go together.

Now, that I have found out about this author, I think I will have to look into getting some more of her books to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable erotic romance August 2, 2009
Talia of Zortou has spent years since she turned eighteen as a Rosabelle pleasing males on a world where females are scarce . Not once in all that time did the highest bidder for her services consider her pleasure; instead they took what they wanted as they all felt they paid for their enjoyment not hers.

Undercover operative Ryder arrives on Zortou to thwart an invasion of his planet Bolton. He learns that the handlers of Talia are behind the schemes. Believing she knows their intimate secrets, Ryder abducts her planning to seduce her into telling all. As he gives the woman of pleasure ecstasy for the first time in her life, Ryder finds he enjoys making love with her as much as she does with him though she tries to hide her passion he has enflamed. Talia realizes he is her ticket to freedom while Ryder realizes he wants more form his prisoner besides information, but having been brainwashed for her entire life she finds it difficult to betray her abusive handlers.

Talia is a fascinating lead character as she wants to tell all to her kind liberator, but has problems doing so as she has been trained form almost birth to accept male dominance and abuse; she accepts is her fault when her handlers rough her up for an indiscretion. Ryder is more typical as a hunk of a hero. Although the lack of background about either planet leaves readers anchorless, fans will enjoy the erotic romance between a couple from different walks of life and planets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good read by Shelli Stevens January 23, 2013
By Kitty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read many books that were written by Shelli Stevens and Take Me is one of my favorites. Most of the time I get a book and read it and pass it on to a friend. This book I put on my shelf to read again in the future. I like her style and how she has love, sex and a story that you can close your eyes and pretend to join.
