    First things first, I do think that it would be better for readers to have read the first book in the series, Hotter On The Edge.All of that aside, though, I really enjoyed this anthology.GOLD

first book in the series, Hotter On The Edge.All of that aside, though, I really enjoyed this anthology.GOLD LIKE THE SUN by Erin KellisonIt s the wedding of the millennium Princess Pilar Sol and Hakan Frust are celebrating their union with sector fetes full of celebrity and pomp Theirs is an arranged marriage to preserve the vital commerce of the Nyer Transit Hub, and yet Pilar is madly, unreservedly, passionately in love She has all the excitement she has long dreamed of and a littlethan she bargained for when she discovers that Hakan s grasping family wants her dead.Hakan has done everything in his power to save his inheritance the bustling but impoverished Hub including marrying a wealthy princess for her dowry His heart isn t supposed to be part of the deal, but Pilar has all the beauty and joy his life lacks When Hakan runs afoul of his uncle s associates criminal in nature, violent in approach he refuses to risk Pilar, not for money, not even for his life.But Pilar is not so easily cast aside, and negotiations turn into a gamble with the future of the sector in the balance Hakan is about to learn about the high stakes his bride will hazard, as he now has farto lose and win than he ever believed possible a future brighter than gold.Holy cow this anthology started off with a bang I was sitting straight up in bed SHOCKED by some of the things that went down in this story, and though things did work out well in the end, it was a hell of a ride from Point A to Point B.I really enjoyed the shock factor of some of the things that happened in this story, and the non stop action as well as the drama between Pilar and Hakan really kept the story moving.was a great way to start off the anthology TO KEEP A WIFE by KC KleinIn the shards of civilization ruined by a global war, Lake has gotten the life she never dared dreamed of a safe haven, and the love of a good man, her husband, Hudson Black Creek But Lake s hard won happiness doesn t last long when powerful Elders lay siege on Black Creek Manor in retaliation for a past defiance As Lake watches everything she loves go up in flames, she sacrifices herself for the chance to keep Hudson and her brother alive Syon, a diabolic Elder with his own agenda, will push Lake to her breaking point, forcing her to compromise heart and soul in order to survive.Hudson wakes from a head wound to find that his whole world is reduced to ashes With no memory of why he s sacrificed everything for a woman whose name is tattooed on his chest, Hudson is determined to make his heart match the emptiness of his mind, and wipe out everything except the hatred for those who are to blame the Elders and the wife he sought to protect.As evil and fear spread across a war torn land, Lake and Hudson are tested like never before, and both will have to forgive betrayals and risk greater heartbreak if they want a chance at saving their lives and their love.It s important for me to mention that I m a big fan of K.C Klein s work, even though her stories never fail to make me extremely uncomfortable She forces me to go outside of the tiny little box of how things are supposed to work in romance and realize that sometimes a Happily Ever After is muchmeaningful if the characters and the readers are put through the ringer first.This story broke my heart into a thousand little pieces Having read the previous story in the series, I had thought that the tough times were over for Hudson and Lake, but boy howdy was I wrong about that And as hard as it was to read about some of the things that happened to these characters, I would be a bold faced liar if I said that it didn t make their Happily Ever After all themeaningful.The only thing that I didn t care for in this story was the fact that the timeframe changed As the author notes, the first story in this novella happened after the events in the novel of this series, Dark Future, a time traveling tale of which I am a huge fan This novella, however, changes things around and forces the previous novella as well as this one to be set before the events of Dark Future Though this shouldn t be a problem to newcomers to the series, I admit it was confusing as hell for me as I read some of it PRINCE OF PASSION by Jessa SladeWhen mercenary raiders targeted the empathic crystals that imbue the legendary l auraly lovers with extraordinary sensual prowess, Icere, the last male l auralyo, helped destroy the crystals Rather than let the source of uninhibited pleasure be corrupted into a mind controlling drug, he allowed his passionate destiny to remain forever unfulfilled Now, Icere channels his fury into revenge Tracking the raiders through the interstellar sheerways to a watery world infamous for its aphrodisiac liqueur, he finds a queen as adrift and alone as he forced for years into a fate she never desired.Saya Rynn inherited duty, command and control from her cruel grandfather and fought to transform her dangerous planet into a paradise for her people but the price was literally a poison that runs through her veins Though she feels as ancient as the seas, she finds herself awash in the hot male potency of the young Icere Still, she resists the chance for indulgence she thinks has passed by her But when the raiders strike again, Rynn must embrace her troubled legacy, and Icere will find his place as a lover and a fighter Together, the reluctant ruler and the deposed prince of passion find common purpose, combating the mysterious entity seeking to rule the sheerways, and claim a love as bright as the infinite stars.As usual, this trio has saved the best for last I loved not only the virgin hero hello , but the delicious tension between Icere and the older,experienced Rynn The mermaid mythology as well as the intrigue and danger woven into the tale only added to the drama, and I especially appreciated the concern that Rynn had about taking a lover who was of an age with her own son It s not often that we get older heroines in romance, and I for one appreciated that she wasn t some young, green girl The action, the drama, and the passion of this story made it a perfect way to close out the anthology.Overall, a very solid 4 5 Stars

they can truly trust Their love for each other, their families, and their home worlds drive this stor Amazing stories If you love scifi romance, this anthology is for you Read the blurbs, then my thoughts, and I hope you ll read this amazing anthology as well as the first, HOTTER ON THE EDGE GOLD LIKE THE SUN by Erin KellisonThis is an amazing, action packed adventure through the back streets of Nyer as Pilar and Hakan try to figure out how to save themselves, two worlds, and figure out whom they can truly trust Their love for each other, their families, and their home worlds drive this story of forgiveness, discovery, and a future greater and safer than either expected for the innocent I highly recommend this exceptional scifi romance, filled with danger, and a bit of unexpected violence It is a wonderful sequel to Erin s story, ALL THAT GLITTERS, her original story in the first anthology, HOTTER ON THE EDGE It s not an absolute necessity to read the first story, but I greatly suggest you do.TO KEEP A WIFE by KC KleinWe met Lake and Hudson in KC s story in the first anthology, HOTTER ON THE EDGE, in TO BUY A WIFE A man who has a wife is revered with respect, envy, and believed to have great prestige in this war torn society We catch up with Lake, Hudson, and Lake s little brother, Vonn, in the midst of an attack on the farm Lake realizes that the Elders want her and will stop at nothing, and will spare no one, to get her in their clutches She convinces a wounded Hudson to protect her brother, let the Elders take her, and come for her later Things don t work out exactly how Lake had hoped Now a prisoner of the maniacal Syon, too much time has passed for her to believe that Hudson is ever coming for her It s just her again, alone to fend for herself, and her unborn child.This story covers so much in so short a time that you will almost feel like you re watching a film in your head Whereas I bullied KC about Lake being on her own too much in TO BUY A WIFE, in TO KEEP A WIFE, KC Klein weaves a wonderful story about the fear of loss, fear of abandonment, and the wonder of how love can pull back loving memories from the darkness and bring a family back together TO KEEP A WIFE by KC Klein is a the perfect finish to a story that began with a match not exactly made in heaven but ends with a happy ending that will lead us on evenadventures I hope.I highly recommend the short story, TO KEEP A WIFE by KC Klein but only if you ve read TO BUY A WIFE, without that lead in, the fast paced action of this one might confuse and sully the wonderful intricacy of this tale Please read TO BUY A WIFE in the first anthology, HOTTER ON THE EDGE PRINCE OF PASSION by Jessa SladeJessa Slade blew me away with the imagery and science elements in this story about a May December romance that develops between a Queen and an outworlder friend of her son when he comes to her water world fraught with all kinds of natural dangers Icere is the last remaining l aurylo a being born, sculpted, and infused with the purest of passions through the l auraly crystal He has come to Saya Terce because he suspects the mercenary raiders, who tried to steal the l auraly crystals from his home planet resulting in their destruction and the end of life as he knew it to be, were now after the Malac liqueur There is no end to the dangers of what the aphrodisiac liqueur might be used for in altered forms.Rynn, the Saya of Saya Terce is suspicious of anyone wishing to get too close to her, or her children, after her own husband betrayed her home world and so her instincts tell her to question this beautiful young man s reasons for being in the midst of the Malac Festival, and so close to her son What she doesn t expect is how sexually charged she would feel in his presence Nor the need to which they would succumb to, after an accident during the harvest places them together and under the influence of the Malac liqueur.PRINCE OF PASSION by Jessa Slade is an amazing sequel to ENSLAVED BY STARLIGHT from the first anthology, HOTTER ON THE EDGE It s evenilluminated than the first, with amazing imagery, incredible characters and creature creations, and the danger that makes Icere and Rynn band together to save Saya Terce Their romance is powerful, insightful, and naturally believable Rynn is a beautiful and powerful ruler with unusual abilities that make herthan just a queen but rather a part of her world Icere understands her, even if she doesn t understand herself Two of a kind, bothconnected to their home worlds than to others, Icere embraces her, and her talents, in the same way he relates to his own home world and the crystal that is so much a part of him.I highly recommend reading PRINCE OF PASSION by Jessa Slade, working well as a stand alone, I still recommend you read this entire anthology For the greatest reading pleasure, I also suggest you start with HOTTER ON THE EDGE, the first anthology, but if you only read the second HOTTER ON THE EDGE 2 be sure to read this beautiful, imaginative, and incredible story by Jessa If you love exciting romance, these are exceptional eCopy provided by authors in exchange for an honest and unscripted review It was easy to do because I loved, loved, loved all three
