POWER IN THEIR PASSION
Marisa Rourke is a beautiful, fearless telepath who tames dragonshapers on Earth. Rion is a tall, dark, and sexy space explorer whose home planet is a galaxy away. The attraction between them is undeniable, but Rion is hiding a desperate secret that will change Marisa's life forever.

DANGER IN THEIR TOUCH
Marisa's gift is the only way Rion can communicate with his people, enslaved by a powerful enemy. He knows that kidnapping her is wrong, but saving his planet is worth sparking the fiery clairvoyant's fury. Yet hotter-and more explosive-is the psychic bond growing between Marisa and Rion. Could their passion be the key to freeing Rion's people? Only if he and Marisa can discover how to channel their desire . . . before a vicious enemy destroys them all.

I began reading Susan Kearney's The Pendragon Legacy series with book 3, Jordan, but Rion, book 2, would have been a better place to start. In Rion the willing suspension of disbelief is eased by sweet humor, and those shape-changing dragons that so startled me in Jordan appear as new and curious to the characters as they are to the reader. They're also very enjoyable to watch as twin babies scramble and play with the family dog before returning to human form for food. Rion is an entertaining tale, combining Arthurian legend with adventure, romance and science fiction. It continues the story begun in book 1, Lucan, where, it seems, the Holy Grail is both found and lost and the fate of humanity saved. Marisa is a telepathic human dragon-shaper, and for all the strangeness of that definition, she's a believable, interesting character. Rion is an alien with an alien agenda, but also with very human emotions and physical attraction. Each tries to deny their feelings for the other, for their various different reasons, and each will learn that love is more important than our reasons to hide it. The story travels from earth to alien planets via curious portals and magnificent space-ships. Its tie-in with the sequel, Jordan, is pleasantly satisfying, making me glad I've read both books, but sorry I didn't read them in the right order. While the romance may be a little too intimate for my tastes, and the story a little too close to the "great science appears as great magic" approach, Rion is a fun adventure and a satisfying addition to the series.

This is the first Kearney book I read, I can't say it's that great, there are part of the story that were nice, but there were other parts where I actually skipped pages.

While it is the second in the Pendragon Series, Rion is a satisfying stand alone novel. Rion is a convincing romantic lead. He must betray a woman that he's come to care for and respect in order to protect his countrymen. Rion does not make this decision lightly and he somehow continues to behave with heroism and decency. The story is strengthened by Marisa's independent and nature. She acts as a hero in her own right. The story is fun, engaging, and will have you eager for the third book in the series which comes out in March 2010. Publisher: Forever; 1 edition (December 1, 2009), 384 pages. Review copy provided by the publisher.

Author Susan Kearney is a native of New Jersey, writes full time and has sold books to the industries' top publishing houses. As an award-winning author, Kearney earned a Business Degree from the University of Michigan. Her knowledge and experience spans throughout the romance genre, and her fifty plus books include contemporary, romantic suspense, historical, futuristic, science fiction and paranormal novels-- with Lucan available now as part of this series, and Jordan coming in March 2010. She resides in Tampa, Florida with her husband and children. Listed as book two in the Pendragon Legacy, this story follows where Lucan left off with Marisa Rourke and Rion. Marisa is a beautiful telepath, and one of the few dragonshapers on Earth who can tame others. Rion knows that the only way he can save his home planet of Honor is to get Marisa to help. Honor, having been enslaved and its people tortured by the Unari- a tribe traveling galaxy to galaxy on their own quest and taking power as they go- has just one hope left. Marisa also know that by helping Rion, she is helping Earth, as the Unari have Earth in their sights next and plan the same destruction for her home planet as they did for Rion's. With the attraction to each other undeniable, they soon discover a link involving the chemistry between them and a way to channel their powers to stop their mutual enemy. But they need to work together before this enemy destroys them all. Although I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Lucan, I must say that I found this one, Rion, much more riveting than the first. And for a futuristic romance, more believable too. I don't want to put up a spoiler alert, but I was wondering through the whole book how "Jordan" played into this series for the third book, and I was not let down by the reveal towards the end of the story. That book proves to be an anticipated one as well. Susan Kearney proves yet again that stellar writing can shape and define any genre to make it believable and engaging. The setting was well-crafted and easily pictured as she takes you through the galaxy to different cultures and planets. The romance in this book was strong and hot, and without issuing a spoiler again, very inventive to use the attraction between them as a way to save the world. A recommended read!

Crown Prince Rion Jaqard of Chivalri will do anything to protect his planet of Honor and expel the Unari from trying to destroy his world. He has lived his entire life under disguise to protect the throne and only went to Earth to retrieve the one person that could help him communicate with the Dragonshapers on Honor and set a revolt into place - Marissa Roarke. He is prepared to lie, deceive and even kidnap her to ensure her assistance but is he willing to take the power of love with him and trust his feelings enough to share them with her and tell her who he is and what must be done. Marissa is a telepathic Dragonshaper who has been treated poorly by all the men in her life except her twin brother Lucan. But right when she is ready to let herself feel love and affection for another she finds that Rion is not looking for a relationship from her but only her ability to communicate with the Dragonshapers. The catch is that ability only works when they are making love and she is able to free all of her passion into a message of happiness and stop the Dragonshapers pain. But how can she trust Rion when all he has done is lie to her and can she truly believe that he now wants to love her as much as make love to her. The true drama starts when they arrive on the Planet Honor from Earth and the chaos that Rion thought he knew existed is so much worse than even he could have seen. Rion has seen allot as he also has the power of vision. He is able to see in his mind flashes of the future and most are not pleasant and peaceful. However once he is reunited with family and Marissa is able to free the Dragonshapers another twist in the plot begins and one that Rion will find difficult to recover from even with Marissa beside him. This second book in The Pendragon Legacy is as exciting and action packed as the first book Lucan. The alternate universe that Ms. Kearney has created is not only imaginative and deep with detail it is also full of characters that are as complicated as they are colorful. You feel their pain and want for their freedom and I can't wait for the next book in the series. Mary Gramlich ("The Reading Reviewer") www.marygramlich.com

(Sorry i was gone.) She loked at her new kits and thought of names. She decided to name the white she-cat with black patches Dreamkit. The light grey tom with black patches would be Rockkit. The black tom would be Nightkit. And the light grey she-cat would be Breezekit.
