Overview

Berta's Choice is a 37,000 word novella


When she was just twenty years old, Berta Simms had her life stolen from her. Kidnapped, stashed away in a lonely desert prison without even her reptilian captors for company, and forced because of her unique genetic heritage to bear a grotesque alien child, she is now in her eighties and bears deep and seemingly indelible scars on her body and on her heart. Then, miraculously, Berta is rescued from her desolate exile and brought to the idyllic planet of Jasan. There, she begins to find healing and a productive purpose to occupy her few remaining years, and is content, but not happy.

Suddenly, Berta’s life is turned upside down once again when she discovers that, despite her advanced age, she is the Arima, destined soul mate, of the Falcoran brothers, a set of strikingly handsome and oh, so very sexy, triplets who shape-shift into enormous birds of prey. Joining with the Falcorans brings the promise of fulfilling her scarcely acknowledged dreams of love, restored youth, and incandescent passion, but also seems to embody her deepest fears of intimacy, being under the control of males, and having to face her long denied sexuality. Which will she pick? What will be Berta’s Choice?

Berta’s Choice is a 37,000 word novella from Laura Jo Phillips, the Amazon best-selling author of the “Soul-Linked Saga” which now extends to five full-length novels, and the “Orbs of Rathira” Trilogy, the first volume of which is now in print. While a continuation of the “Soul-Linked” story for its many thousands of fans, Berta’s Choice is also enjoyable as a stand-alone story for those who are new to Ms. Phillips’ work. Even presented in this shorter form, Berta’s Choice fully manifests the imagination, creativity, emotional insight, and soul-fired passion that has marked her earlier works. It is a treat for established fans and a delightful entre for new readers.

    Berta Found Freedom and Happiness

    I am so glad that Berta got what she deserved after so many years of captivity and torture. This was a different and nice edition to the Soul-Linked series.

    Great addition to the Soul Link books!

    Love them all, and agree with the suggestion of reading all of the books, in order, for the most enjoyment. I've inhaled every one of them!

    more from this reviewer

    Short read, but a good one.

    If you are following along with the Soul-Linked Saga series then you've already meet Berta, a not so secondary character. I think that Laura Jo has done a great job with the storyline and the characters. I'm a 64 year old widow and I get sort of tired of the usual portrayals of seniors. Many of Berta's thoughts could have been my own and I totally love her Rami (the triplets who become her mates). There is plenty of romance,intrigue and humor(staples in Ms Phillips books)and a senior lady who has experienced a lot and reached that point where she calls a spade a spade and is quite content being a sort of surrogate grandma and planning to become a matron in a new house Arima House As with most series, this reads best if you've read the first 5 books but I think that there is enough background provided that one can read this book on it's own.
