Dr. Whitney Washington is a Xeno-zoologist living on the Kindred Mother Ship and she has a big problem--she has a crush on her bodyguard. Unfortunately, the big Beast Kindred who comes with her to dangerous planets to protect her clearly doesn't return her interest...or does he?

Rafe is a warrior with a past--a bad one. He has been hurt before when dealing with females and he doesn't intend to repeat the experience. But it's hard to ignore Whitney's beauty and bubbly personality. Still, he's determined to try until an unexpected turn in their latest trip to a new planet for research changes everything.

Forced to land on an unknown world, Whitney and Rafe find themselves among a group of feral humanoids who seem to be about as smart as house cats. Soon they are mistaken for pets by the huge aliens who live on the planet and taken into captivity as a "mating pair." But what will happen when Rafe and Whitney actually have to mate in order to escape?

Pairing With The Protector: A Kindred Tales Novel (Brides of The Kindred). - Evangeline Anderson This new addition to the Kindred Tales Series has some of the most original and imaginative scenarios and world building yet. Whitney is a scientist that collects specimens from other worlds and has a strong attraction to her “protector” Rafe. Of course he can’t return the crazy draw he has to the female his job is to protect as he has a secret past . The guilt he bears as he finds his attraction and love for Whitney gets a bit overdone but the entertaining story keeps everything moving along. As with all missions things can go wrong and an unreliable wormhole finds the couple on a strange world of giants that resemble elephants as the dominant specials and the beast Kindred and Whitney are small and doll size, even clllected as “Tweedles”. They are discovered, captured and kept as “pets”. Of course they are expected to “breed” as well as behave somewhat like pet hamsters. Despite their situation Whitney and Rafe have to escape, somehow fix the spaceship, get thru a wild wormhole and somewhere in all that they fall in love and get an HEA. The story is not a part of the main Kindred series but part of the Kindred novels, although happily, many of the character from the series do make appearances. It’s an enjoyable rollercoaster story with all the adventure, excitement , sizzling hot scenes and crazy “surprises”, the author is so well know for.

Very engaging read The scientist and her protector find themselves on an unknown planet of giants. But the Giants remind them of sentient elephants. Humanoids on that planet are called tweedle‘s and are mindless like an animal. Or at least some of them are. Lots of interesting issues arise. This is a very well written self-contained story. Lots of action adventure and a whole lot more. I recommend this book to read.

I couldn't put this book down, very unique story with great lead characters. Rafe has some tragedy in his past and has vowed to never love again, he's now the bodyguard/protector for Whitey. They are set to go on a mission to collect samples to study but they end up on a different planet than they were supposed to land on. I don't want to give away the story but Whitney is willing to do whatever it takes to survive and get back home. But Rafe is hesitant because of his vow to protect Whitney and to never love again. Whitney takes charge and does what needs to be done and I loved seeing the woman willing to to whatever to survive. She was a no nonsense, no whining, lets get this done type of woman. Rafe was great in his way and after you learn why he has reservations it makes you love him even more. Can't wait for more!!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Another awesome installment in this Kindred series, I never tire of these stories. This one had me chuckling at their situation, I too used to read Babar and that visual was priceless lol Stranded on another planet, Whitney and Rafe find themselves in hot water.This book had plenty to keep me entertained, the humour, action and heart stopping moments. Will these two have their happy ever after ending? Wonderful tale, out of this world. I highly recommend it.

Another book from this wonderful author. I really do love the Kindred Bride series I gave this a 4 star because even though I loved it, it was my least favorite out of all of them. But it is still worth reading and if she ever brings out the paperback to this book it will end up on my shelf. I just loved Dr Whitney Washington’s personality. This woman had such an upbeat personality. There is not way you could not like her when you met her. She was so positive and tried to find the good in things. I just loved that about her. Rafe was a beast kindred and let me tell you my heart truly broke for him. I understand the walls he had built up around his heart. I also understood the hurt and bitterness he carried around. What I saw in him was such strength and a good heart. This was an interesting spin that the author took on the story. I think it gives you an outlook of how your pets would feel. I can not imagine being treated as a pet, though it might be nice to be fully taken cared of. I can not imagine the fear and helplessness they must of felt, especially Rafe. But the author did show everything happens for a reason. As you are reading this story you will see what that reason is. There are a few hot and steamy parts, danger, sad times, and some touching moments as well. I would highly recommend this book. Was a great story.

Pairing with the Protector, the latest Kindred Tales novel by Evangeline Anderson begins with her usual intro to the main characters. We learn that Dr. Whitney Washington, a Xeno-zoologist, has been invited by Sylvan, the head of the Kindred High Council, to work in a special program that finds non-sentient creatures for the genetics labs on the Mother Ship. Going to strange alien planets could be dangerous work, so she is assigned a Protector to guard her and keep her from harm. Rafe, a beast kindred warrior, has been given that responsibility. We also learn in those first few chapters that each thinks the other is attractive, but Rafe has a dark secret that stops him from ever acting on his feelings. Then, after leaving the Mother Ship to begin their next assignment, everything changes. Not just the story line or characters, but everything! We’re thrown into a roller coaster of a ride that ends in a Halloween nightmare. Trapped on an unknown world with their ship needing repairs, the first creatures they see are humanoid, but with the intelligence level of a cat. As Rafe is working on repairing the ship, both are captured by one of the indigenous people of this planet and end up in a cage, trapped as a mating pair of pets. Used to being larger than others he encounters, Rafe discovers he can’t protect Whitney against the gigantic aliens who see the two as small breeding pets. All our previous expectations of giants are tossed off our roller coaster. We’ve seen Giants in previous Kindred Tales, but these aliens are so much larger that it was difficult for me to envision them. Rafe must keep trying to get them free, however, and try to find the way home. Whitney is not the weak princess just waiting to be rescued, but a strong woman ready to take on the challenges of trying to get free, but their chances are very limited. Evangeline Anderson is one of my favorite romance authors, and, having read all of the Kindred Tales novels, Pairing with the Protector did not disappoint me. Yes, I do recommend it. Yes, I loved the setting and the adventure of it all. Yes, I enjoyed the steamy scenes and the comic ones. Yes, I would read it again (and will!) And yes, this author is like a fine wine, getting better all the time! 1 like · Like ∙ flag
