"Earth women 'imported' as mates -- captivity or love"
This futuristic romance will appeal to those who
enjoy 'captive romances' such as Kathleen Morgan's HEARTS
LAIR. I read the first manuscript in 1999 [written as
Angelique Knoir] and as I like futuristic romances, I was
happy to read the 2001 final release by Myra Nour. It is a
pleasure to see an author develop her skill.
Serena was not having a good evening, her fellow wrestler
was in an irritable mood, her boyfriend had not brought her
car back to pick her up after work and to top it off, she
is approached in the deserted parking lot by a pair of
strange men. So when she woke up among captive women being
taken to Volarn to become someone's mate, she was NOT
happy. She was going to find a way home even though the
King was the most gorgeous man she has ever seen.
King Rhamus, in a desperate attempt to save his people,
agreed to have Earth women 'imported' as mates. Their
smaller size and different coloring was astonishing. Even
more disconcerting was the woman with an excellent body and
warrior's attitude... unfortunately she had red hair just
his enemy has.
Serena and Rhamus are ideal mates according to the powers
of Tarthra. Serena finds herself married to the king by the
end of the night and so begins the adventure of learning of
his world and her new responsibilities as Queen. Serena
must learn to deal with this occasionally barbaric world,
his people, relatives and enemies as well as her awakening
Ms. Nour spins an action packed tale of adventures on
another planet with a strong heroine and warrior hero. The
bit of mysticism with powers from the arj'ak crystal add a
defining quality to Volarn powers. The sequel to this story
is planned; so hopefully soon we will have an opportunity
to visit the world of Volarn again.
