Barbarian Mates, New Beginnings 1
Millie Easton is a scientist who doesn't follow orders--not when those orders tell her to abandon injured members of her team. During an emergency stop for fuel, she is witness to the horrors of a mining facility where she finds men who are considered barbarians because they can shift into wolves.
Alpha Dante DeForest and his men came to Abidem to mine crystals and ore. They lost their freedom the moment they proved themselves to be the perfect workforce. He mistrusts anyone who is not of his pack--until he meets the compassionate scientist who called to his soul. Her forbidden touch set them on a path to their destined mating no matter how much he fought it in order to protect her.
Threats from within the pack and outside worlds jeopardized their future, but love and destiny would not be denied. A life of happiness, love, and children would be theirs if Millie would take the chance and claim it.

I'm normally a person who loves getting to read sci-fi and paranormal, so when you put the 2 together I'm almost certain I will like the book. With this book, it was just too wordy for me. The love making scenes would take up 2-3 chapters. I'm sorry, but that's just too much. I was able to skip around on parts and still keep up with the story. There were also plenty of times I noticed that characters constantly repeated things they were saying all the time. All in all it was a good book. Would I read another book from this author? Probably not, I've noticed on some of her other books many people have said she was very wordy and repetitive in her other books as well.
I'd give this 2 1/2 stars. I like the overall storyline but the author needs a good editor. She spends WAY too much time extolling the virtues of the characters. How loving, how kind, how smart, how pure their souls are, etc, etc, etc. Over and over and over again. Did I mention that its repetitive? Often multiple times in the same paragraph. There were some other parts of the storyline that needed to be followed up on since she went to all the trouble to write chapters about them (like Shannon's being sick. Talked about it in a couple of chapters and then she's NEVER mentioned again in the book, except when she's delivering babies). There were other plot holes too, but the crux of the matter is that the author tried to develop too many individual characters and stories , in doing that she didn't wrap them up and then got wordy in trying to convince us that these were "wonderful" people. Over and over and over again.
Loved this book! Only thing I wish was that she had written it before Alexa's Warrior Mate, as I went through the whole book knowing something the characters didn't. However, that is so minor and I read many times all of Lynnette's books, that in time I feel like that about all of them. Keep up the great stories! I enjoy traveling to new world's you create.
