When the airship is


On a humanitarian mission to the war-torn planet Jesel, Dr. Lara Simmons is used to dealing with lack of supplies, power outages and the constant earthquakes that afflict the planet. But when she's captured by the rebels who need her to perform a life-saving surgery, she finds herself in a situation her medical training didn't prepare her for.

When the airship is blown out of the sky, she ends up in the Jeselian wilderness with no one to rely on but Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed rebel warrior. Dominant and unyielding, he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand when she disobeys the rules he lays out for her. Yet she soon learns he also knows how to deliver pleasure--with a passion she's never before experienced.

Blade finds the doctor from Earth sexy as hell, especially when she's giving him attitude, but once he delivers her to headquarters, he tries to pull back from her allure. Known for single-handedly starting the revolution and freeing many of his people, his life is one of hardship, slavery and war. Going soft on a woman isn't part of his plan, especially with the final strike of the revolution so close. But when he sends Lara back to Earth to keep her safe during the upcoming battle, he inadvertently delivers her into enemy hands. Can he find and save her from the revolution he caused?

"There are some sexy spankings, romantic tension, and a creative alternate world (love the details about foreign creatures and plants, like rye-wolves & lemonberries)... If you like spanky sexy-times, tough alpha males and a fun read, this story is for you." - Alexis Alvarex, Author of Return

"There's action, hotness, and enough emotion to have you tearing up at places. Lara is the perfect strong, intelligent heroine. And Blade is the quintessential alpha hero, who I was in love with before I even knew he was the hero. Fantastic, super scorching sci-fi!" - Aubrey Cara, author of Candi's Debt

"Start off with a sexy, alpha male from another planet. Add in an awesome female lead character ...Then do some world building. Delicious fruits that made my mouth water; crazy, scary wild animals, telekinetic aliens, and uber freaky big headed, bad guy aliens. ...Yeah, this book had it all." -- Katherine Deane, author of Coach's Discipline

I loved every single thing about this book I wish I had bought it sooner! You are my absolute favorite author I can't wait to have more of your books

If you're looking for a dominant male and his no nonsense ways, or else!, this is the book for you. Blade is a solid wall of muscular testosterone who demands obedience and doles out punishment. Lara is an intelligent Doctor who quickly finds herself on the receiving end over Blade's knee, time and again. As their relationship unfolds and they're either fighting off the enemy or stitching them up, a whole lot of passion is igniting between them. Full of pain and pleasure, The Hand of Vengeance is a spicy walk on the wild side!

Despite the title sounding very ominous, this actually had me melting over how sweet the love was in this story. This story is about intergalactic worlds in war and takes place on the planet Jesel. The Hand of Vengeance is what Blade, the Hero, is known as and is a Jeselian. He started his life out as a slave and is now part of the rebel group trying to free his people and take back their planet. Blade kidnaps Lara, a young doctor assisting the enemy, to help with their leader. Years of trauma with the war and witnessing his families demise has made him a cold, dominant, alpha male. At first all he wants is to protect Lara so she can help heal their leader but the more time he spends with her the more he treats her as if she is his woman, going so far as punishing her when she puts herself in danger. Lara is very confused by this, she is a strong, independent woman and she is at first angry when he spanks her for disobeying but also enjoys his dominance over her. Now normally the whole spanking as discipline seems silly to me. It's not something I like to read in my stories, but this is the second book I have read by this author and I actually don't care about how much the author focuses on this. Her love stories are just that good! She has a way of really showing how much the Hero loves and cares for the heroine. I actually got a little weepy in this book at one point! I will definitely be reading more from this author. ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

*ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* A sexy dominant alien warrior, a feisty female doctor from Earth, and out of this world sex, I loved it! In addition, this book has a really good story with lots of action and interesting characters, and I could not put it down. Spanking has never been hotter and the chemistry between Lara and Blade is combustible in this erotic romance.

BODY, HEART AND SOUL I loved this excellent Sci-Fi Intergalactic erotic romance. Dr. Lara Simmons is a Samaritan from Earth and has gone to war-torn Jesel which was also hit with a devastating earthquake to treat the injured. In 2560 Earth, men and women are equals, but on Jesel, men dominate and women are submissive and under the rule of man. Blade Vengeance, an enormous tattooed Jesel rebel warrior, expects obedience and will punish Lara if she disobeys, after all, he is just trying to keep her alive and safe and get her to his encampment to treat a very important leader. Lara and Blade butt heads and go into a personal battle of wills, but he always wins. He sees that Lara is naturally submissive and responds to his discipline. Their relationship is a steamy erotic battle that in the end, they are both winners. Disclosure: I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
