Brides of the Kindred 24: Deceived

Anna is living in a nightmare. Stolen by raiders from the arms of her loving family, she is bought by a hulking Trollox for breeding purposes. She wants to die until her thuggish captor buys a new robotic cook who also doubles as a guard for the house. At first Anna thinks he is just another Replicant, without emotions but soon she finds herself pouring out her heart to him. It’s safe because he’s just a machine so she knows he’ll never hurt her like a real male would. Is it wrong to think that she’s falling in love with him? Especially since a machine can’t really love her back…

Dark is a Kindred warrior on a mission. He must steal the Shannom-rah, an ancient crystal capable of storing trillions of personalities, before the enemy of his people gets it. In order to do this, he has to infiltrate the home of the Trollox collector who owns the priceless artifact. Posing as a Replicant, he is in the perfect position to complete his mission. But he didn’t count on finding a female in danger. Despite his determination not to get involved, his heart is torn by her plight. As his feelings of protectiveness for Anna grow, he longs to tell her the truth about himself. But he knows doing so will destroy her faith in him—she has been hurt so badly by living males, she can only trust him because she thinks he is a Replicant.

When the truth comes out will Anna still care for him, or will she feel betrayed knowing that she has been…Deceived?

*Author's Warning: Though I have tried to handle it delicately, anyone with a history of past sexual abuse may want to read with care because my heroine Anna, is a survivor of a sexual attack. I don't write this kind of book lightly or gratuitously, I wanted to write about love and hope and healing and redemption. I hope I have achieved that goal with this book and that it will bring hope to others.
Hugs, Evangeline

Deceived: Brides of the Kindred 24 - Evangeline Anderson The summary of the book by the author is a peak into amazing book 24 of the Kindred warriors, but it only touches the surface of what the readers are made to experience and feel from the two main characters; Dark and Anna. Both characters have been through hell having been abducted/ kidnapped and forced into horrible situations. Dark (a mixed Kindred)had a life as a renowned chef with his own restaurant when one of the Yonnie6 mistresses kidnaps him and he endures being her slave before being freed. On the mothership Dark accepts an undercover role as a replicant chef for a horrible Trollex. While trying to steal a special crystal before It can fall into the hands of an evil AI who wants to use it to take over the world he discovers Anna, a woman who was kidnapped and sold to the Trollex as a breeder. Now Dark has two missions, to recover the crystal and save Anna from the Trollex. Of course Dark realizes Anna is his mate and there are some special hot scenes between the two (not all the way) . Anna only allows herself to become intimate with the handsome kind “replicant” (after having been physically and mentally abused),because he is supposedly not a real male. This exciting book has several storylines woven throughout this that keeps readers on their toes and riding the rollercoaster with the main characters. This is a wonderfully well written addition to the main Kindred Bride series. The main characters have been through horrible experiences but they are both survivors. Now the question is will they be able to heal and will Anna be able to forgive Dark for having to “Deceive “ her. Deceived is filled with intrigue, danger, heartbreak, plot twists and turns, the authors unique steamy scenes as well as her phenomenal ever growing world building. An amazing book and awesome addition to the Kindred Bride series.

What another amazing story for this author. I just love the Kindred bride stories. Let me warn you, this good cause some triggers but the author portray a survivor very well. I can not imagine what it was like for Anna. Knowing she might not survive, missing her family, and feeling so alone. She was being abused and this had to wear on her mentally knowing the abuse was only going to get worse. I just loved Dark which is what is part Dark Healer and part Blood Kindred. The last thing he had to expect to find on this undercover mission was a pretty woman needing help. The author was very creative when writing this story. There was also some very touchy subjects in this story that I think the author handled very well. I believe stories should not always be sun shine and roses but portray the good and the bad. I think the author took a bad situation and shown how one can survive and come out strong. This was truly a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

Dark had a rough time, he was held as a slave on Yonnie Six and that means he went through a traumatic experience. Then instead of getting to go straight home he has to go on a mission for the Kindred. This mission may be the best thing to ever happen to him. Dark is sent to become a cook for a nasty Trollox, while there he meets the Trollox's breeder Anna. And who better to help Anna through her traumatic experience than someone who has been there?! I really loved Anna and Dark, even though Anna was going through so much she stayed incredibly strong and brave. But.....does Dark show up in time? Can Anna forgive Dark for his deception even though he didn't do it to hurt her? You definitely need to read this story. And as always we get to see some familiar faces, also we get to see some shenanigans from the Knower that made me laugh out loud (I love Nana)!!!!

Two Kindred souls In this fabulously well written story, you have two kindred souls in a situation that brings them together when otherwise they may have never met. Both have history of abuse which help them to understand each other. But the secrets if not brought to light could tear them apart. Well written self-contained story that’s also part of a series.

This is Dark and Anna's story. Anna is bought by a cruel alien. She has been through so much. She is strong and it really helps that she has a robot to confide in and help her get through.. Dark is there posing as a robot so he can retrieve an object that could be used for nefarious purposes. This book has some dark areas but, love and a protective kindred will win the day.

A Different Twist on Brides of the Kindred! This BotK has two main characters and two villains. Sometimes we have one evil character and in others we have a misguided culture. But these two must face an evil character in an evil culture and a murderous AI entity. I was completely blown away. At first we meet the entity, but due to Ms. Anderson's skillful writing, I didn't realize the role it would play. Then we meet a Blood Kindred, Dark, who is also a Dark Healer with numerous talents...but no spoilers. Dark has been dream sharing with a beautiful female, but leaders on the Mother Ship ask him to undertake a very dangerous mission. He must agree to be sold as a Replicant to retrieve a priceless but dangerous artifact. The owner of this prize is Gorn, a Trollox, a being as repulsive as he is malevolent. When Dark is established as a Replicant in Gorn’s household, he discovers the female, Anna, is a slave whom Gorn has bought to be his wife. She has been deceived by a man who claims to love her and whisks her away, only to sell her as a Trollox slave. I have read all the BotK as well as the Kindred Tales, but this one is going to be one of my favorites. I really enjoyed visiting some of my favorite characters on the Mother Ship, especially those from the early books. Although you don’t have to read these in order as this one is the 24th, you’re going to love it. If you are a fan of the series, this one is full of unpredictable designs. I know I will be reading Deceived again!
