Book Description

Melina Franklin was barely sixteen when she and her grandfather were kidnapped from their small farm in Georgia by an alien trader and sold to an Antrox mining asteroid in deep space. Mistaken for a young boy, she lives in fear of being found out and sold. Her only companionship for the next five years is her grandfather and the Pactors, a large creature used for hauling the mining ore, that she takes care of. She dreams of the day when she and her grandfather will somehow escape and return home to the rolling green hills of their farm.
Calo and Cree Aryeh have been secured as the personal guards for Creon Reykill’s mate, Carmen Walker. The twin brothers are a rare species of dragon known for their fierceness in battle. Born to the mystic dragon clan of the Northern Mountains, they have given their allegiance to the Dragon Lords vowing to serve and protect the royal family and their new true mates. The brothers know they will never be able to have a true mate of their own. Never in the history of their clan have twin dragons been able to find a mate capable of handling two male dragons. They can only hope that they die in battle so they are not destined to be caged when the loneliness eventually drives their dragons insane.
The twin dragons are confused when two humans are discovered on an abandon asteroid mine. The old man and his grandson appear normal enough but their dragons and their symbiots are driving them crazy, insisting the boy is their true mate. Neither know how to handle the other two parts of themselves or their need to remain close to the boy. On top of that, the young human male refuses to have anything to do with either of them. He hides and avoids them every time they get near him.
Things become clearer when they discover Mel is really Melina. Unfortunately, finding out their true mate is really a woman does little to change her feelings toward them. She is even more determined to return to her world.
When her wish comes true, the brothers know they have no choice but to kidnap her and hide her away. Can they convince her to give them a chance at happiness or will she seek protection from the royal family they have vowed to serve? If that is not bad enough, there is another who has his eye on their mate and will do whatever is necessary to keep her – including killing the twin dragons who have claimed her first.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, unworthy heroine..... September 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hated this heroine, I felt she was unworthy to be a mate to these two dragons. SPOILER ALERT..................................SPOILER ALERT.......... I mean what's the point in telling us about the twins internal struggle and resignation to die after one more mission. THEN saddle them with a heroine that's too stupid to tell the difference between the good guys and bad! 40% into the book and she's still pretending to be a boy? Hides her looks, runs away from them, is mean to them and then expect them to be attracted to 'her' as the girl! Wtf!

For the author to drag this secret on to almost half the book? I almost threw my kindle across the room. I kept thinking what's your point already. And "booooooring"

Then on top of all that she accepts them into her body. Her train of thought leads me to think "thank eff! Finally". Only to have her blow cold the next second going "I just want to be left alone" Seriously? Then after everything she tells them to leave and that she is staying on earth.
S.E Smith was that really necessary?

I couldn't help but think to myself "my god these twins have gone through enough feeling hopeless all their lives that they will never live like other people. Never feel complete in this life. That they must end their own lives to save others!" Then they're given this miracle that doesn't seem worth it. They didn't deserve this bit of pain, I think. I they were a pair of playboys then yeah, go ahead and punish them a little.

Then when she finally accepts them she allows one to beat someone else almost to a bloody pulp when there was no real harm done in the first place. She walked off laughing and joking with no remorse whatsoever.

What happens when they get attacked?

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 STARS September 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved reading S.E. Smiths other books in this series, and gave most of those books 5 stars. Unfortunately, this book for me was a little boring in places, and a little disappointing in others. The book has some spelling, and misused words in it. Very unusual for this author. Her books are usually more polished.

****************************************SPOILER ALERT***************************************

l loved the main characters...Cree, Calo, and Melina......I could feel the twin dragons hopelessness, fear, and despair that they would never find their true mate. I felt Melina's sorrow over loosing her much so I actually cried. The storyline was great, as were the descriptions of the main characters. Melina throwing dung at the twins when they got to close, was absolutely hilarious.....

However, this book, to me, felt choppy in places, and rushed in others. The flow was off. For example: around 40% of the book was of the twins trying to get close to Melina, and Melina dressed up, and acting like a deranged boy. For me, after awhile it got boring. I kept saying to myself, "Come on, get on with it". Also, when they got to earth, after Melina changed into her dragon in the cop shop, the next day or so she tells the brothers to leave....what? She actually thought to stay on earth as a dragon? The twins never explained to her, and she never really asked what being their mate entailed. For them to leave her would have been a death sentence for all of them. You would think the twins would mention that, don't you think? Then the night of the dinner, we know they are going, then bam! It's the next day, and Melina is waking up. It was like the dinner scene was cut out of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story; writing needs improvement September 24, 2014
By Joanne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I read this entire series up thru book 7 straight thru. The story lines are really good! I love how she overlaps each of the stories, and the reader is able to follow each story while still knowing what's going on at the same time in each of the other stories. It's almost as if she mapped out a time line for everything before she even started writing.

Here's what I DON'T like.... In the author's bio, she states that her background is in writing technical papers. Either they don't have a need for proper grammar in technical papers or she didn't succeed very well in her former job.

The author seems to have absolutely no understanding of present and past tense, among several other things. The glaring problem throughout each of the books tho is her consistent failure to use wrong tenses, and it drove me crazy! Granted, I still wanted to finish the books, and I'll buy future ones. But, this is an easy fix just with the use of a grammar checker!!! I don't understand how someone can screw this up as much as she did unless she either didn't take the time to run the grammar check or she didn't proofread it. Either way, it screams laziness to me and truly irritates me.

My other "beef" with the author's grammar is her improper or lack of use of commas.

As for her writing style, I would say I it's still very indicative of the technical papers she's used to writing. She has very little variation in her sentence structure and absolutely no prose to her writing that a true author would have. Taking out the sexual content, this is 3rd grade level reading material (and that might be generous).

Now, for what it is - a self-published book on Amazon that costs four bucks - yeah, it's a good but not worth more than 3 stars.
