It was alright Getting tired of it pretty fast at this point. Overall Rating 4.5 Rockin What if you were dying with no hope of getting better Would you be willing to accept a gift of healing and life What if it meant leaving your own world behind This is the second book in Stormy McKnight s Terraneu series It tells the story of a brave woman and the being that offers her than life.Mairi McPherson has reached her last breath Her heart is heavy with the regrets she has from things that she should have done differently in her life She feels like she has wasted the time she was given and now it is too late to make things right Mairi regrets not staying closer to her grandfather, not finding someone to love and not having children Everything that is important in life she had taken for granted including the love of her grandfather Mairi thinks that she is dreaming when she wakes up and finds herself staring into the eyes of the most beautiful man she had ever seen Is he real Is he an angel Knollig knew the moment that he held the sick woman in his arms that she had awakened him He knew that she was his, but he was a man of honor and swore that he would give her time to adjust to his world She needs time to meet the other males on his
Terraneu men need women At Amber s suggestion they go to Earth to enroll the BB owner, Callum to help them Their offer is straight forward save Callum s grandaughts Mairi who is dying of cancer and offer him to came as well to Teraneu.The story was quite simple Mairi is saved and Knollig is instantly attracted to her But, instead of pursuing her since they are both attracted, Knollig wants to do the honorable thing and let other males have their try I found it odd because, Kniam staked his claim and got a physical reaction in response to Amber immediately as it happened to Knolling So why the hiding when a man is unlocked genetically by a woman and this is it We have Knolling hiding and avoiding Mairi and Mairi keep trying to get his attention and embarrass herself.After over a week of this behavior the council, tired of the games played, releases Knolling from his promised to stand down from pursuing Mairi.From here on is pretty straight forward Mairi and Knolling dive in the relationship.The kidnapping was like and afterthought, though.The anti women group kidnap Amber and Mairi Mairi saves the day.Knollig story was just there for me The romance story was pretty flat as well as the action I am guessing
Not a bad story but the grammar and editing is horribleThis book has a pretty good plot and the characters are okay However , the writing is very stilted and was hard to read in some places The story could have been shortened considerably with the use of contractions Repeated use of the word Viola , instead of Voila was very annoying The main character is a 46 year old woman who was miraculously changed into a supermodel by some kind of medical machine In the scenes where she talks about getting pregnant and having babies there seems to be no thought to the fact that she is 46 and maybe babies aren t possible Some
This is the second book in the Terraneu series.Mairi is on her deathbed Her grandfather makes an deal with the men of Terraneu to help them find females in exchange for saving her life She is shocked to wake up and find herself completely cured And importantly surrounded by sexy men who want nothing than to claim her as their mate The only problem is that the one man she wants decides the most honorable thing to do is to keep her at arms length What follow
I love this seriesIt does sort of reads like Star Trek meets the parts of Nevada These planet is warm with soft rains at night Sounds lovely However, I like the code these men live by and the second chance these older ladies have at finding love What late thirties or forties woman wouldn t want to get into a med unit and come with twenty year old body with the same mature mind that can really appreciate these men and their society Talk about a real second chance
I enjoyed the first book and I liked this one but not as much as the first But since I m still interested in this new concept in the alien adbuction genre, I m going to read the third This book did come across as filler and the sex scenes were too few to give any extra stars for that
A good light readI like this series due to the lightness of it It has comedy and romance and just all around goodness to it There isn t a lot of action or drama laced passion Characters are well rounded and likeable The heroes are as well The story line is somewhat unique which makes this refreshing
drama galoreI liked Mairi she is feisty and very agressive I liked the give and take with the aliens Mairi was the one to make sure that the other men have mates This really brought home the situation with the men because of the dynamics of the girl and grandfather.
