Hold - h meets H in a sci-fi prison. It's a sci-fi erotica that doesn't really read like a sci-fi. The H and h are both arrested for bogus crimes. I really love this story. The H is not a villian but more on the stoic/cold side. He does warm up in the end.

SheReadsAlot, thanks a lot for the rec - I started reading that book yesterday and it's pretty spot on for me so far (for what it is - erotica, a short story etc). I don't suppose there's a sci-fi with a similar theme? The whole prisoner theme with the heroine picking the hero as her protector/guardian in return for services is interesting

You're welcome. I haven't come across too many stories with theme. I've been looking for it to. Hold was pretty unique to me.

I'm pretty sure that there's a Kaitlyn O'Connor with a similar theme - although I think it ended up being a permanent menage. I'll see if I can find it if you're interested.

Demon's Captive has a somewhat similar theme. I personally liked the book as I am a fan of jealous heroes, but it did not get very many stars on Amazon.

TravelingGal might that have been the Enslaved book? I remember the the h was taken and put into a experimental colony type place to mate with aliens but maybe not. If you find the book let me know

Dark Solstice is the Kaitlyn O'Connor book where an innocent woman is sent to a prison colony. The H is very cold. I can't remember if she picked him or if he just claimed her because he's the biggest bada** in the prison.

I liked Dark Solstice but FYI for other posters -- it has a menage.

Thanks for the rec all. Read Hold and really enjoyed up until the midway or near the end where it kinda fizzled. Love the set up and how the author does a great job of giving you a feel of what life in the prison was like. Then it became a little repetitive with the sex and the rushed ending. All in all I think the author did a good job and loved the storyline/plot about the heroine being sent to prison and having to make a quick tough choice

Eden has a Hero who is very stoic. The heroine ends up alone on a planet - or so she thinks. Soon she realizes that there`s a man/alien there as well. A man who protects her but who has a deep secret. A very interesting read!

Willread......question about Eden. Is it a stan alone with a firm ending or the first of a series?

HJ Leonard says:
Mari, Eden is a standalone, though the author hints at a possible second book as an 'after opinion,' at the end of the book (but does not actually seem to have one in the works). It has a finite ending, and does not require reading further.

Mari says:
Thanks HJ....I am so fed up with serials and books that leave me hanging. Some of those serials are not only expensive but readers think that they'll get a conclusion but the stories seem to stretch on and on. I bought Eden ages ago when it first showed up on my recs page but it's just been sitting since then. I'm moving up my TBR pile.

Sociopath: A Dark Romance, hero is a sociopath. This one Was interesting I had a really hard time getting into because I didn't like the heroine but the hero was hilarious. Has a chilling ending.

Can you spoil the ending, is there a HEA? I don't mind complete spoilers, the more the better.

It has an HEA. It was just kinda an unexpected crazy one.

SPOILERS on ending:
Okay so the hero has fallen in love with heroine but what is found out she's really as crazy as he is, if not more so. She had a thing with the hero's ex girlfriend just because she wanted to feel close to him. Shes known the whole time that he is a sociopath and actually shoots him for some whacked reason about knowing he killed his evil mother(who deserved it) and how he destroyed her innocence since to help prove an alibi he paid who we find is her mother a large sum of $. She learned from that day that the rich can get away with anything and this 'shattered' her. However, he doesn't die. The epilogue is from her POV and ends with her walking out of her shrinks office having convinced the shrink she is completely fine now. The hero is waiting for her and when she tells him the shrink cleared her he says all along the lines of good if you can fool a shrink you can fool anyone. Which is exactly what his mom said to him in a flashback in the book from when he convinced a shrink that he was normal and not a sociopath as a kid.

Oh God, those two don't sound good together! Like enablers for each other or something.
I might read it just to try something different, thanks for spoilers.

Not a problem. I wasn't fond of the heroine but the book is from the hero's POV so I liked it because he was really interesting and hilariously sarcastic.
