    ONE OF THE BEST READS

    Wicked Lord: Bren is a US Sergeant Major trying to keep the new alien invasion in check. The Kith have come to find their leader's One, who is on Earth. Bren doesn't trust the Kith, especially the Kith Ambassador Lord Farid Arjun. He is much too attractive to trust. She is determined to never act on this attraction, but when the passion between them cannot be denied, how long can she hold out against the sexiest creature she has ever encountered?

    Wicked Lord is the beginning of the Kith journey to find their Ones, their true mates here on Earth. They are ferocious creatures who want to find true love. Earthers are not so ready to believe they are not trying to invade the planet; enter Bren and her team. Bren has worked hard to be as good as the boys at her job. She can kill people with the best of them. But when it comes to matters of the heart she is totally lost. Farid knows Bren is his One. To find a person's One is rare and he is not about to let misunderstandings get in the way. But how can he get through the walls around Bren's heart?

    The passionate encounters in this story had me enthralled from the get go. Having a sexy man enter your dreams and give you the best sex ever is very sexy to read about! I also enjoyed the pure romance and electricity these two generated. This made me want to read more about the Kith and the women they love.

    Carnal Empress: Jana Townsend doesn't know if she is worthy of the Emperor Kyber's love. He has traveled the galaxy to find her and she has betrayed him to the enemy. She feels that his imprisonment and torture is all her fault. If she had trusted more, she could have saved him before he endured so much pain. Now that she has finally risked her life to save him, can she forgive herself and restore the One bond she broke when she betrayed Kyber?

    I cryed so hard reading parts of Carnal Empress. Jana is both brave and incredibly strong. Her character touched my heart. I really wanted her to find the joy and love she so very much deserved. She betrayed the one man she loves above all and now will do anything to save him and restore their bond. Kyber has suffered unimaginable torture. His strength of will has been the only thing keeping him alive. He wants to hate Jana for betraying him, but finds even in his darkest hour, he cannot hate his One. But how can he move on knowing she betrayed their bond that is now broken beyond repair?

    I found myself really immersed in this story; I wanted Jana and Kyber to find love again. I was cheering for them all the way. I wanted the bad guys to suffer; if you ask me they needed to suffer more than they did for what they destroyed. I hope there are many more stories of the Kith and their loves.

    Primal Heat by Crystal Jordan is overall one of the best reads I have read in a very long time. I loved the chemistry, the alien worlds, and the shifter elements to these two stories. I think every romantic should have Primal Heat on their keeper shelf. I know it is going on mine.

    mediocre development

    If you love a story full of sex,sex,sex on the page you'll like these two stories. If you're looking for something with a deeper character you should keep on looking. I'm sorry to say this book didn't live up to my expectations. The characters have sex all the time and in the most ridiculous moments of the plot. Apparently sex is all that is really necessary to complete the "ONE" bond in Crystal Jordan's world; which is unfortunate because her story concept had so much potential.

    A hedonistic sci-fi military thriller.

    Primal Heat is more than erotic romance. It has as many action scenes as erotic ones, and a captivating action driven plot. The Kiths are an advanced race of powerful shapeshifters with psychic abilities and hedonistic nature. They come from a planet called Suen. A planet shared with the Kins. A weaker race from who the human earthmen are descendants. A fleet of Kith warships orbiting Earth hints alien invasion. The Kiths return to Earth declaring they come in peace and their only goal is to find emperor Kyber's One. The concept of fated mate is as alien to earthmen as the Kiths. Earthlings don't believe the unheard of excuse, reacting with fear and belligerence. Handling the diplomacy between the Earthmen and the Sueni, is Lord Farid Arjun. A member of the Kith nobility, and cousin of the emperor. Bren Preston is the assistant of the US General William Arthur. Who consolidates the earthling military powers creating a global defense against the Sueni. Bren realizes Arthur is using the false invasion as an excuse to implement his own plans for global domination. She defects joining the Sueni to stop the evil general from taking over the world. Since the moment they meet Farid knows Bren is his One. He tries to resist the attraction, but his inner beast has other plans. So when Farid sleeps, his beast gets across Brens' dreams, making passionate love with her. Farid is disturbed by the death of his loved ones. Who were unable to continue living after their mate died. All fatal victims of the extreme dependance of the One bond. Thus, Farid biggest fear is to fall for this afflictive type of love. He enjoys a physical relationship with Bren with no intention to ever tell her, she is his One. The One bond it's sharing that goes beyond the physical. It's a sensory and mental connection that could have one mate feeling and experiencing, the pleasure or/and the pain, the other mate is going through in spite of distance. Primal Heat is a compilation of two stories. The only differences are that the first story, Wicked Lord, is told from the point of view of Farid and Bren, while the second, Carnal Empress, is told from the point of view of Jana and Kyber. The storyline, the outer conflict, the setting, the villain, the secondary characters, and the final confrontation, are shared during both stories. If we would have been exposed to Jana and Kyber's relationship from the second chapter of Wicked Lord, it would have been easier to engage in their grief-stricken personal conflicts. Carnal Empress starts with emperor Kyber's rescue. After being brutally tortured by general Arthur. The conflict between Kyber and Jana, starts when he is taken prisoner. Jana in her desperation to free Kyber, falls in Arthur's trap, who sexually abuses her, later letting her free, knowing that he damaged her enough, that even after Kyber is freed, the mental torture continues for both of them. Primal Heat is a satisfying page-turner, which I suggest to anybody who likes erotic paranormal thrillers.

    Primal Heat contains two interconnected ET erotic romances

    "Wicked Lord". The Kith arrived on earth seeking their Emperor Kyber's "One" mate in the universe. Every night, Kith Ambassador Lord Farid Arjun enters the fantasies of Army Sergeant Major Bren Preston. She cannot prevent the half-human, half-tiger from turning her sleep into a sexual fantasy; nor is she sure she would want to stop him if she could. It is his penetration of her dreams that allows Bren from keeping Farid from having her when they are awake. However, he will not quit because he knows she is his "One"; but they must protect his leader from her malevolent leader.--------------------

    "Carnal Empress". Jana Townsend knows she is in love with the Kith shapeshifter whose life she saved, risking her own, from the dastardly perfidious earth leader. However, she also relishes the incredible idea that her beloved Kith Emperor Kyber searched the universe to find his One who is her; but also fears she is not worthy of being his empress soulmate.-----------------

    Primal Heat contains two interconnected ET erotic romances. The lead couple in each entry is fully developed and the story line provides deep insight into the Kith culture. Although the evil scheme of the earth's leader is over the top of the Kith Empire as it detracts from two otherwise strong romantic science fiction thrillers, sub-genre fans will enjoy Crystal Jordan's entertaining star-crossing romances.----------------
