This book was an amazingly enjoyable read! I had no idea that this was the third book of a series. This was a fantastic stand alone that can be read without having read the first two of the series. I was immediately drawn to Cat (and Shifter) and Kerry. The characters were so well written that the reader quickly developed a feeling for them. I loved the twists and turns as they existed on the planet. A fan of sci fi will just love this book. I found myself lost a bit with the quick scene changes that were hard to understand, at first. When the big surprise hit and there was a larger presence involved, I was struck by how quickly I found myself looking for Captain Picard and Q. I am a HUGE fan of that series so this worked for me on many levels. The action was fast paced and exciting, the growing yet begrudged feelings between Cat and Kerry was really well written. This is a page turner and hard to put down. The superb ending was just the icing on the cake and I would love to read the first two and cannot wait to read the 4th installment. Super highly recommend this book to every fan of science fiction! My Rating: 4.5 stars * -.5 for just the hint of loss of originality in places * I received an ARC from the author in the hopes that I'd review it.

I LOVED BELOVED ENEMY! It was really a work of art...How the imaginative stage was set just so, how the story board was kept on simmer, and how the characters were defined (mainly the fiesty red-haired Cat & the capable and handsome Kerry). It was all so magnetic. The characters were like would-be friends that I admire. On my wish list is a regenerator and don't tell my cat Woofie I might trade him for a chameleopard wolf. If I ever feel unfulfilled, this book will be awaiting my rereading. Somehow, it gave me a transfusion - a new zest - and appreciation for Hywela Lyn's talent and capability. Within is a message that each human being might aspire to live life as a rep for humanity on earth! Pertinent issues of Earth are here entwined with a love story really "out there"! This book stays with me! Date Added: 08/28/2016 by Cat Kaulback

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review and rated it 3.4 out of 5 Stars. I can’t remember the first time I read a science fiction romance but I know it’s a subgenre that I’ve enjoyed reading in the past so when I got the opportunity to read and review Beloved Enemy by Hywela Lyn, the third book in her Destiny Trilogy, I jumped at the chance. Set on an “uninhabited” planet, Beloved Enemy tells the tale of two people, determined not to fall in love with each other, who find themselves being tested and judged by a “superior” race of beings determining whether they should allow mankind to expand further into space or put an end to them. Filled with action, emotional angst and just the right amount of romance, this is a book science fiction romance lovers will definitely enjoy. Ms. Lyn does a good job introducing us to her primary characters, Cat Kincaid, a “pirate queen” and Kerry Marchand, a man with a colorful past. A red haired beauty, Cat, is intelligent, skilled with weapons and a talented space pilot. When her spaceship is attacked, she flees in a small escape “vehicle” and ends up marooned on a planet hoping to be able to find some sort of rescue. It was a little difficult to connect with Cat at first because of how the story begins – right in the middle of her becoming marooned- but once I got to know her, and her companion “Shifter”, I liked her and enjoyed watching her character develop. I liked Kerry’s character right from the start; a handsome man with unusually colored yes, he’s smart, tough and dedicated to the crew of his ship. Though he doesn’t know it, he and Cat have someone in common in their past who was very important to them both. The secondary characters are Kerry’s crew members, the “superior race” of beings who use the planet as a staging area for their “tests” of the humans that have landed there and members of the “Union”, a governmental organization Kerry hates and Cat sort of works with. Ms. Lyn does a good job combining all of the characters and action in the story and I found myself turning the pages to find out what would happen next. Especially when it came to the chemistry between Cat and Kerry, chemistry they couldn’t ignore. Will Cat and Kerry be able to prove that humans are worth keeping alive? Will they ever get off the planet they are stuck on? And will they realize that they are destined to be together? You’ll have to read Beloved Enemy to find out, I enjoyed it look forward to reading more of Ms. Lyn’s work.
