Excerpt
I am completely overwhelmed. My core is on fire and I want so much to kiss him, to touch him. I feel sparks of electricity shoot through every fiber in my body and every nerve ending is screaming for release. I want his hands on me, all over me.

“Amare?”

I put my hands on his chest and push him away. He’s too close, making it hard to form a single thought. I take two steps to the side to put some distance between us so I can speak like a human, not a lust induced zombie. “Yes, they towed my car and it’s in their lot. I haven’t really spoken to them about it yet. I kind of fell asleep on them…”

His face clouds over and he says, “You kind of fell asleep on them? What. Does. That. Mean?” He pauses between each word and growls them at me.

“Jonas took me to see Doc Jordan and he gave me something for the pain, but because I hadn’t slept in days it made me sleepy. I think he ended up carrying me to their clubhouse.” I realize how all this must sound. If someone told me that exact same story, I would be thinking the worst.

“Did they touch you, Amare?” he growls at me, his eyes blazing with anger.

“No, no, no! In fact, Jonas put a guard on my door so no one would go near me. Not that they would. I was safe, Sal.” Something crosses his face and he stares at me so intently that I look away and stare at the floor.  He moves back into my space and lifts my head up. “Thank you for getting me coffee. Let’s go have breakfast and I’m buying. I think I shall keep you in my sights to make sure nothing else happens to you. I have never met a woman who allows herself to get into so many dangerous situations, in such a short space in time. You, my Amare, are a handful.” He moves away from me and does up his shirt, then grabs his jacket. He opens the door to his room and extends his arm. “Shall we?” he asks, offering me a smile that reveals his dimple. My core clenches again and I have to fight the urge to throw myself at him.

Review of Grim (Tornians #1) by M.K. Eidem

King Grim Vasteri is the strongest, most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He has been sent by his Emperor to find and retrieve compatible females for their dying civilization. Lisa is a widowed mother of two little girls who finds herself and her daughters suddenly in high demand. Will the most feared warrior in the Empire keep and protect them? Or will he allow another to claim them?

King Grim Vasteri is the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He is the King of Luda, blood brother to the Emperor and his line will die with him. He will have no offspring for no female would join with him for once he was scarred he was considered 'unfit'. The Tornian Empire has been dying ever since the great infection caused the birth of females to become a rarity. Since then they have been searching the known universes for compatible females. The Emperor's discovery of a compatible female on a slave ship changed that. He'd ordered Grim to find his Empress' home world so more 'unprotected' females could be obtained, knowing Grim would never be allowed to Join with one.

Lisa Miller is a widowed mother of two little girls, Carly and Miki. Her husband died just a year ago, after a long battle with cancer and she misses him immensely. Friends want her to start dating again but in her heart, she knows there isn't a man on the planet she could love like her Mark. Who could love their girls like their own. Therefore, she'll stay alone.
When Lisa is discovered 'unprotected' at her husband's grave, she wakes on an alien ship heading for an alien world. Refusing to accept this she confronts the large males, demanding she be returned to her children. Seeing his chance to have a female, Grim agrees to accept and protect her offspring, if she agrees to Join with him and only him. Realizing this is the only way she can retrieve her children Lisa agrees and the Tornian Empire changes forever. 



Overall Rating:  3.5 Rockin’ ★★★
 Grim is the first book in the Tornians series by M.K. Eidem.  This science fiction romance is full of action, drama, twists and turns and many, many editorial mistakes. However, it is saved by the overall storyline, and because of that it is worth muddling through for.  I have wanted to read this book since it came out, but shied away because of the reviews.  Don't let that stop you from reading this fabulously, creative love story about Grim and Lisa struggle to navigate two different cultures. Their other worldly love is worth the effort.

Grim is considered an unfit mate because of an attack that left him scarred and deemed unworthy.  In his culture, scars represent a warrior’s inability to defend and protect others as well as himself.  Therefore with the ratio being 200 to 1 with males outnumbering females, you can see why he had expected his life to remain solitary.  Lisa is a widow and has two young daughters.  She is kidnapped by the Tornians from her home planet, Earth. Only when she accepts their leader, Grim's ultimatum to join with him and only him is she able to retrieve her girls.  Their journey is complicated with the cultural differences.  Women are revered almost to a point that in my mind was ridiculous, but necessary for the storyline.  While at the same time males are considered expendable in their culture.  If one dies, another can take his place.  With King Grim having not only one female but three in his household, he is envied by other males in Tornian society.   When the plot to overthrow the current regime begins to unfold, their lives are in peril and decisions must be made.

The story is written at a steady pace and if you can get pass the mistakes, it's truly worth reading.  For me it was a hard read with all the errors. In addition, having paid more than I normally would for a book, it really did not sit well.   At times it seemed rushed and sympathizing with the plight that the characters endured was difficult. Would I read another book by this author? Yes.  The storyline was good and I believe in second chances.

Being someone first love is unforgettable. Being their last is immeasurable.



Claire Peters should be on top of the world. She owns the radio waves and has a budding movie career. But her heart longs to be rooted.

After a decade of running, she returns to the island hoping to find her happiness with the man sheÕs loved all her life.

Tattooed Hearts is book 3 of the MarthaÕs Way series





Excerpt


She knocked on the door and waited. Nothing.



She knocked again, a little firmer this time. Still nothing.



Claire reached in her purse and grabbed her phone. Damn, no freaking signal. Another perk of living on the island. Phone signals were capricious. She turned on her heels to the back of the house where she knew he kept the emergency key, then headed back to the front. The night wind penetrated the wool coat with absurd ease, making her shiver. She drew her shawl around herself more tightly to keep out the cold as she fumbled with the key.



The door slowly creaked open; she stepped inside and was greeted by a muted house, which was not typical of Forrest. She headed down the hall, the click of her heels amplified with each step on the wooden floor. She entered the family room. In here, ESPN always blared in the background. Tonight, there was nothing but an eerie, hollow silence.



A bad feeling slithered up the back of her neck.



She dug in her purse for her phone again. One finger dragged along the screen, it lit up. Still no signal. A knot of fear twisted in her gut.



ÒClaire.Ó



The sound of ForrestÕs voice, infused with a question mark, caused her heart to jump and fill with joy, relief. She whipped around and faced the main reason she came back to MarthaÕs Vineyard.

Book Summary

 

Lea Lamb and Austin Wolf were young when they fell in love. They never imagined the future could hold anything other than together-forever.

When Lea’s father dies in a tragic fishing accident, she's crushed under the weight of her grief and catches a glimpse of another type of future, one she knows she's not strong enough to face.

Austin is angry. For the past fifteen years, he's believed the woman he loved with every ounce of his soul left him without so much as a backwards glance.

When Lea unexpectedly returns to their hometown, all the years of heartache inside Austin bubbles to the surface and presents itself as blinding rage.

Faced with the truth about the past, a newly discovered secret, these former lovers will learn that if they want to have any chance at the future they’d given up on all those years ago, they will have to rescue one another from drowning in pain so debilitating it will leave them both fighting to breathe.
