"unique and unconventional fantasy erotic romance..."
Book One of The Ta'e'sha Chronicles
Theadora Conner led a pretty ordinary life. The creative
waitress had no idea her life would change so drastically
the day she left work and was kidnapped by a stranger.
When she awoke from her drug induced sleep, she found
herself genetically altered to carry the alien child of two
handsome males claiming to be her husbands. Kyrin and
Daeshen had selected Thea as their treasured mate - a role
that Thea would have to accept now that Earth would no
longer be her home.
Thea quickly begins to accept her fate and tries her best
to adapt to her suddenly mated status. Despite her anger
and frustration, she starts to settle into her new life and
even grows to love her attentive husbands. But whereas
Thea feels adored and protected by Kyrin and Daeshen, some
of the other human women are not adapting as well. In
fact, many of them are emerging from stasis exhibiting
signs of extreme post traumatic stress disorder. The cause
It becomes clear that someone has been brutally assaulting
the women, but the perpetrator is a crafty one. With
contempt for the humans driving his actions, the assailant
sets his sights on Thea. Marked by the gods and cherished
by her mates, Thea represents the ultimate betrayal of the
race and the attacker seeks to make her pay for it. Will
Kyrin and Daeshen discover the evil lurking about their
spacecraft in time to save Thea from the danger that lays
waiting in the shadows?
DAUGHTERS OF TERRA starts off sprinting and doesn't slow
down until the dramatic ending. Boese has created a story
within a universe that is unique and compelling; however
readers may have trouble suspending disbelief with regard
to Thea's rapid acquiescence after being kidnapped and
seduced by force. Additionally, there are moments of
violence and nontraditional mating practices that may cause
moments of unease, but regular readers of (paranormal)
erotic romance should manage just fine. There are hints
that suggest that there may be more to Thea's heritage than
meets the eye and we learn more as the series progresses.
For readers looking for an unusual fantasy ménage story
where the m/m aspect features prominently in the m/f/m
relationship, DAUGHTERS OF TERRA is one to pick up.
