Life on Earth ended as Callie O’Doyle knew it six months earlier when aliens invaded much of the planet, including the quiet harbor town where she lives. As she walks home late one night from work, she comes face to face with an alien in a spacecraft who injects something into her arm. When she wakes, she’s no longer on Earth, and the male alien has brought her to his home.
Although Jakara is physically appealing and doesn’t mistreat her, it’s also clear he’s taken her prisoner, and he gives her no choice but to submit. The longer Callie gives her body to this mysterious man, the more quickly her heart follows.
But as their feelings for each other grow, so does the danger they’re in. Jakara broke all the rules when he took Callie for his own, and if she’s found, it will mean their death

Not very good. Falling for your captor and sympathizing with the Aliens who are fighting for their right to free choice while enslaving and abusing another species (yours). Even if the lead guy doesn't support that way of thinking he still captured the heroine of the book. Hypocrite! If he didn't want her for himself then he would have turned her over like the ones before her. She does make him see that humans are more than sex slaves but.......... just could have been better. Plus, only 87 pages on my Nook Tablet. ............................................................................................................
This is the first book in the Voyeur Moon series by author Ravenna Tate. While it is a quick read, I loved every page. I really felt for the main characters and was rooting for them throughout the book. I can't wait till I start the next book in the series.
Kidnapped by a Warrior is the first Voyeur Moon book, the story of Callie O'Doyle of Earth & Special Retrieval Commander Jakara of Voyeur Moon. Voyeur Moon's military conquered Earth with nearly no resistance, taking out our satellites & the technology dependent on them. They've rendered Earth helpless & intend to keep it that way. There's no more global communication, commerce, banking or money. Government is in complete chaos. Everyone's dependent on their own resources, now running dangerously low. Utilities are dropping off what's left of the grid. Any paid work is impossible to find. Food & water are harder to find every day. Earth is sinking into the past every day. Voyeur Moon's soldiers are now kidnapping Earth women. At first, entire families disappeared (including Callie's). But 6 months later, it's apparent that Earth females are the true targets. Callie is one of the lucky. She has a job, home & food to eat. A master's degree in art history hardly matters now. She's lucky to have any job, even at a dry cleaner's. She sees an ad for a job at an art gallery & goes for the interview. She finds a joke of a gallery filled with cheap knock-offs from former big-box stores run by a former well-known gallery owner. When Callie hears the woman's story, she knows she can be of some help to this desperate woman. She accepts the job thinking this is the best thing that's happened since the invasion. On her way home from her first day, Callie hears a drone flying her way. She's only a few hundred feet from her building when the drone flies directly overhead. Just as she's about to make a run for the front door, she hears a louder roar, like an airplane. But there're no more airplanes, not from Earth. She tries to make a run for it but is frozen in place. She watches in horror as an aircraft descends to the street. What looks like a human man emerges, approaches Callie, pulls a syringe from his pocket & injects her. She's out in seconds. That quickly, Callie's life on Earth is over. Jakara hates & despises what his job with every fiber of his being. But he has no choice. He's part of the Voyeur Moon army. Though there's a resistance, it's covert & no one knows who they can trust. As much as he hates kidnapping women & taking them for sex slaves, he has no choice, not if he wants to keep his job & stay alive. The history of the 3 planets of Alpha Centauri (Addo, Sera & Voyeur Moon) is long & complicated. Technology outstrips emotional maturity & empathy. The Regum & all they rule have developed space travel & technology taking them hundreds of light years away to visit other planets. But they have no balance or sanity. Their prejudicial laws show no compassion, leave no room for justice. The Regum decided centuries ago that sex for pleasure only weakens men. Sex is only for procreation, NOT for recreation. They have indoctrinated all women that sex is undesirable, messy, disgusting, unpleasant. However, large groups of both men & women disagree. Thus, the beginnings of a revolution. Jakara makes an impulsive decision that could get he & Callie both killed or worse! What does this mean for the two? Can they escape? How can this work when there's constant surveillance? Thus begins a journey filled with mystery, terror, discovery, emotions of every kind. In the end, what will happen? If you enjoy an exciting mix of paranormal/sci-fi/romance/mystery & thriller elements with amazing characters & storylines, I highly recommend this book!
Kidnapped by a Warrior is the Prequel in the Voyuer Moon series of books by Ravenna Tate, and let me tell you, it starts the series off with a bang! The premise is that Earth has been invaded by the Tyranns, and they have destroyed cities and taken some of it's citizens. The hero of our story, Jakara, is a Special Retrieval Commander, sent to retrieve the females left on Earth of the families taken on the first round. But, Jakara doesn't particularlty like his job, so he decides to keep Callie for himself. The more she learns about herself and what her fate was to be, the more she becomes attatched to Jakara. But they are in constant danger. Can they escape the consequenses? Pick up a copy and find out. This was a majorly hot read from Ravenna, and not the last in the seried. That's a great thing. I'm looking forward to see how this battle shapes up. Definitely a keeper!
