They don't come much more dangerous than Teague. When the ship transporting Krisa and Teague crash lands on Planet X, Teague promises Krisa he will see her to safety. But Krisa soon finds she never feels safer than when she is in Teague's arms - or in more danger!
After reading Evangeline Anderson's novel Planet X, I have made it a goal to read all of her work. While I have read and thoroughly enjoyed a few of her other books prior to this one, Planet X is the book that earned her a spot on my automatic buy list.
Being a Science Fiction fan, and especially fond of space themed stories, I was drawn to this book, and found I was not disappointed! Interestingly enough, however, the futuristic society is blended with a primitive society on Planet X, which somehow makes the story easier to identify with - a dichotomy, to be sure, since neither society in the story matches the contemporary world we live in.
Now on to the REALLY important stuff: the romance! Teague is absolutely the epitome of the misunderstood bad boy who does what he has to do to survive and protect those he loves, and yet is more tender and caring than the most sensitive `good guy' you've ever met. He easily wins both the readers' hearts and Krisa's as well by the way he takes care of her.
Krisa's character could easily be seen as an allegory for the way society presents an image of how women should look and behave.Read more ›
The story is hot from the very beginning, when the virginal Krisa catches sight of musclebound Teague chained to a wall in the ship's hold. She's on her way to luxurious slavery as a rich man's wife, and he's on his way to prison. The author takes the time to build a lot of tension between the characters, so that when the ship crashes and they take off together into the jungle to escape a carnivorous predator, the anticipation is already high. A series of edge-of-your-seat adventures follows, and the action is engrossing right up to the very end of the book.
Everything about this book is perfect. The plotting is really well done, and isn't just second string to erotic scenes. The writing is polished, crisp, original and often amusing. There is solid characterization, and you really get to know and care about the characters as they fall in love. The love scenes, which build gradually in intensity throughout the book, totally sizzle.
I just loved everything about this book. It's way too good for Ellora's Cave.
traveling to meet her
husband-to-be, Lord Radisson. Krisa, however, yearns for more before
she begins her new life of obedience. Sneaking out of her quarters
late that night, Krisa quietly creeps into the ship's hold to study
HIM. She can't help it, he intrigues her like no one ever has and she
desires to learn more about him. The man chained to the wall in the
hold calls to her and asks her to remove his blindfold. Against her
better judgment, Krisa does as he asks and is amazed at what she finds.
Kurt Teague was born a slave but refuses to die as one. Escaping from
capture again and again, he figures this time is no different and plots
his escape. What Teague doesn't count on is the scent of an aroused
female in the hold where he is chained to the wall. Assuring the
female that he won't hurt her, she removes his blindfold. What Teague
sees intrigues and arouses him, for Krisa is beautiful. There is just
one problem. Teague is still chained to the wall and Krisa is still
traveling to meet the man who is to be her husband.
Their situation changes in the blink of an eye. Krisa finds herself
abruptly awakened from a sound sleep and goes to investigate. What she
finds is an angry captain, an escaped criminal, and a wrecked ship.
Teague and Krisa make their way from the wreckage, but are still in
danger. A ferocious animal is stalking them and both know it is only a
matter of time before Lord Radisson finds her.
Planet X held me riveted the entire time I read this book.Read more ›
