In Bridefight, Detective Lois Commoner is tired of her life. Ever since she was injured on the job she's lived with pain and the knowledge that her injury will have her riding a desk for the rest of her career. She's been alone since the death of her mother and now, with the end of her career, she's depressed and makes the decision to end it all. After taking pain pills she wakes up in a strange new world. The first thing she sees when she opens her eyes is a large puma who stuns her by shifting into a man. Prince Damon believes that Lois has been delivered to his world, The SandLands, to be his mate. But before he can keep her, he has to win her in the Bridefight.
Mating Season continues the SandLand stories. With his brother's recent mating to Lois and apparent happiness, Prince Maltese is lonely for a mate of his own. He's in his bathing pool when he wishes that wherever she is she would come to him. Suddenly, a woman drops out of the sky into his bath. Lt. Anne Sanger is a World War II WAC who is not happy at finding herself in the SandLands. Nor is she thrilled to find out that Maltese is determined to be her mate. She's determined to find her way home regardless of how attractive she finds Maltese.
Groomfight is the last story in this book and is Prince Shakar's story. Prince Shakar is off hunting and bored when he wishes himself to be anywhere but the SandLands. He finds himself on a strange world facing Rica Callanbra. Rica's mother is from the SandLands and appeared to her father who, in an effort to keep his mate happy, built a machine allowing them to travel to the SandLands whenever they wished.Read more ›
The recurring character, Lois is obnoxious and annoying, and while I concede that MJD's smart-mouthed women can sometimes be a little annoying, they usually go about it in some charming or humorous way. The rest of the characters are "OK". The steamy factor is "OK". The quality of writing is "OK". The "Bad Boy" factor is non-existent - these guys are pussy cats.
That said, an "OK" from MJD is still better than the good stuff of many other authors. As for me, anything by MJD has an automatic spot on my keeper shelf, so I had to buy this book, even if I'll never re-read it.
Better MJD recommendations: Undead and Un-(fill-in-the-blank), The Royal Treatment (sequel coming soon) , Hello Gorgeous, Under Cover, Derik's Bane (which you'll enjoy more if you've read Secrets 6 and Secrets 8)
The problem I had with the last two novellas is that they seem rushed, thin and sloppily executed. When I read Bridefight, I felt that Davidson discovered a unique and erotic world with sharp humor and great one-liners to boot. However, the novellas are so short and end so abruptly that I am not any the wiser about the SandLands and its inhabitants. For example, in Mating Season, Anne was quite adamant about returning to earth, and then out of nowhere changes her mind. I was confused with her sudden change of heart. It was just too abrupt.Read more ›
