Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 252 - Prisoner of the Crown by Jeffe Kennedy, Alien Mate by Eve Langlais

Prisoner of the Crown (The Chronicles of Dasnaria #1)Prisoner of the Crown by Jeffe Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Parts of this can be very disturbing as Kennedy sets the stage for the next books in the series. We see Jenna as a pampered Princess who has learned the meaning of fear and we follow her as she has to break free of her upbringing to save her life. It is hard to read everything that happens to her and know how unprepared she is to break free. Everything is set up for what will happen after Jenna breaks free and we see her on her way to a new life. The next books should be very interesting.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Alien Mate (Alien Mate, #1)Alien Mate by Eve Langlais
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a cute start to a series with a familiar trope. Tor is from a planet with a shortage of women. This means they have to go outside to find mates. The Oracle tells him his mate is Diana, an Earth woman. Seems that Diana has a different idea and gives Tor a run for his money. Their problems continue after they mate as someone is out to get Tor and have Diana for his own. A nice mix of romance, sex, and danger. I loved how women's lib get worked into the story. I wonder if Diana changes things in future stories.
