M/M Sci-Fi Erotic
Blurb: Terra offers sanctuary to both Angellum and Virkola. Unknown to the humans, a truce exists there. To Terrans, the two species exist as myths. One is a frail, winged creature from religious texts. The other, a demon of the night, living off blood. Both are far from the truth…
Sorin thought sanctuary was the answer to their problems. Terra with its plentiful creatures, full of fresh blood and off limits to the millennia-long war with the Angellum—who wouldn’t think it paradise? Except paradise comes at a high price. Claiming a bounty on a renegade angel hasn’t ended up the way he planned at all.
Teo loves his ship, his life in space, but he loves Sorin more. The plan seemed sound, but the bounty is a fraud and now the price is on him and Sorin. He’ll make the best of the rest of his life with Sorin, even if it’s only for a few weeks.
But when hope appears from an unexpected source, both men grab chance by her wings.
Review: All of the reasons I love Shayla are in this story. Hot men, hot Sex, a banging opening and an action packed ending. The story opens with heart pounding action, true space opera fashion. Weapons, a chase, intergalactic intrigue. The writing, the way Ms. Kersten strings words together, is wonderful. The characters are vividly described and the sex is so hot, it’ smoking. However, as quickly as I was swept into the story, I soon found myself wondering where the story was going. I felt adrift in space. I was reading, things were happening, but nothing seemed to come to a conclusion. The angel never really had a part in the story and the connection to Sorin was never explored. In the end, the story does become exciting again, but by then I’d lost interest.
