Overview

Emily Brooks is just an unremarkable girl living a boring existence--she teaches kindergarten, has a small house on the north end of Tampa, and tries not to envy her sister's perfect life. But Emily holds a remarkable secret within--one that won't stay hidden much longer. She is about to become something and someone completely different--that is, if she lives long enough to undergo the transformation.

Tragar is a Beast Kindred with tragedy in his past. Pain and loss have driven him from the Kindred way of life and into a new career--that of a deadly Verrak assassin. The Verrak take an oath to kill every target they contract for or die trying. Now Emily is in his crosshairs but the moment he gets close enough to her, his sharp Kindred senses tell him something is different about this particular target. Emily is a Khalla--a rare female who some say embody the essence of the Goddess herself. She is a treasure beyond compare. Tragar is well aware that his own choices have left him unfit to serve her but at least he can protect her until he can find someone worthy on his home planet of Rageron.

But there are dark forces in their way. Tragar's oath to kill can not be broken lightly. And there is a shadowy figure rising from the darkness who wishes to claim Emily's life. Can the fallen warrior guide and protect Emily to the place she truly belongs? Or will he die trying? You'll have to read Targeted to find out.

I really appreciate the fact that this author comes up with new and imaginative sex scenes! She writes for women's enjoyment in this series. Women are treated like goddesses and, indeed, the heroine in this book is essentially a goddess. The writing is creative and imaginative. The main characters are flawed but appealing. The only issue I have with this particular book is that the editing is a bit slipshod in the e-reader version.

Targeted is book #15 in Evangeline Anderson's amazing series "Brides of the Kindred". One of my favorite authors and this is definitely one of my top favorite series. When I sit down to start any of the books in this series I'm already thrilled and excited knowing I'm about to be transported into this fantastical world, I am never disappointed. It's time to indulge in another installment of this yummy exciting hot sexy thrilling scify romance series, so happy. The story starts out with Emily, a kindergarten teacher having a really bad day. She's recently found out she's adopted and is having all kinds of weird physical issues. Strange hot flashes, her eyes seem to be turning colors, there's someone else looking back at her when she looks in the mirror. On top of that she finds out the man who traumatized her years ago is now working at her school. At the beginning of the story Emily is a bit meek, happy with her simple life. By the end of the book she has undergone major changes, she is a force to be reckoned with. I liked Emily more and more as her story developed, she goes thru one heck of a journey, a major metamorphosis, embraces love, and comes out strong. Trager is a Beast Kindred, the same kind as in the first book Claimed. Having suffered an unimaginable loss, needing to somehow deaden his pain,he joins the Verrak, special assassins with unbreakable oaths to follow thru on their deadly missions. Not being totally heartless Trager follows his victims before killing them, confirming that they are truly evil. His latest assignment happens to be a blond human woman, Emily. After following her for ten days and seeing she not only a good person caring for young children, her scent reveals she is also a Khalla,one that is said to be part of the Goddess herself. She is precious,sacred, his mission now must be to protect Emily and see her to safety. After explaining to Emily that she is in danger and that she is experiencing so many strange physical symptoms because she is in transition they leave for his planet. From here the action packed journey takes off. The well developed plot and subplots take hold of your imagination and take you thru deep space along with the characters. The storyline (which was introduced in the last book) is well developed with several layers, a roller coaster ride filled with lots of twists and turns, unexpected journeys and realizations. Of course there is attraction between Trager and Emily, forbidden exchanges,the characters slowly fall In love and thru that bond find redemption, forgiveness and strength (there are some deeper lessons here). The sex is really hot, this is Evangeline Anderson and no one writes romantic scify erotic romance better and in many cases with quite the imagination. I find these 5 OMG's rated scenes an awesome perk within fabulous books. The main characters as well as many of the secondary are all well developed, you really get to know them and their backgrounds. I love how many characters from previous books have important roles in this book, and their stories all weave together. We also get to know the main characters for Book 16 very well and are treated to the beginning of Forgotten. Loved this book and highly recommend going along for the fantastical journey of the Kindred Brides, reading the series in order highly recommended as well. There is so much creative imaginable aspects to this story as well as excitement, adventure, danger and dark forces, hope, love,

There are some surprises to this book. I love the approach Evangeline Anderson has taken on this book. This can be read as a standalone. Emily Brooks is a female that lives on earth. She loves kids and teaches kindergarten. Do to something awful that has happen in her past she is unable to stand the thought of being with a man. So marriage and kids seems out of her future. She has always felt different. It is like she has another being living inside her trying to get out. This is very scary to Emily. She feels one day the one she calls the “other” will take over and she will be no more. Rivin Tragar is a Beast Kindred that has renounced the Goddess after something awful that happens in his past. He has joined the Verrak and is now a hired assassin. His target is Emily Brooks. He has watched her for days and yet there is something stopping him from taking his target out. He is one that never misses a target. He always kills the one he is sent to kill. Then he smells her and realizes Emily is a Khalla. Beast Kindred are sworn to protect Khalla for they are very rare, precious, and consider a treasure. It is something imbed in their DNA that makes him want to protect her. Targar and Emily find themselves are a dangerous journey while headed to Rageron. Emily has four stages that she will go thru becoming her Khalla. If these stages or not fulfilled and if Emily is breed to soon she could die. Tragar needs to help her keep from going thru these stages until they reach Rageron. He must due whatever it takes. Targar is refusing his feelings for Emily because he feels unworthy. Emily is being very stubborn on who she wants as her mate. If she can not have Targar then she does not want anyone. Mother Chundra (FYI hated that woman) is refusing to allow Targar and Emily to mate. Will Emily and Targar ever end up together? There is so many road block that Targar and Emily face. I must warn you that you might need a box of tissue when reading this book. This is one incredible book about true love, forgiveness and self sacrifice. Book well worth reading.

I'm somewhat ambivalent about this one. I've read all of the books in the series. ..love the overall premise of the series....this one though...it was kind of funky...and I didn't care for how it ended. I don't know....I'm a bit tired of wicked priestesses and bad guys that won't die...but I'm sure I'll read upcoming books anyway. The series is still my favorite out there.

I really love this series, but the plots are getting worn thin. Yet another evil priestess and yet another medically neeeded sexual series of encounters. Not to mention, the particular physical secual issues in this book are DISGUSTING. I really hope the author sees this and writes some new material.
