About the Series: The Brides of the Kindred
A race of Alien Warriors from beyond the stars
Three very different types of men
All looking for one thing…their brides

Beast Kindred—Savage in battle these dark, brooding warriors from Rageron bring their passion and intensity to the bedroom. They possess a very special endowment that ensures every sexual experience is a tantric one.

Blood Kindred—Cold as ice to their enemies, these tall, blond warriors from Tranq Prime warm up when they find the right woman. But be careful…they bite.

Twin Kindred—Muscular and rugged, these warriors from Twin Moons always come in pairs and cannot be separated. They experience physical pain when parted from each other…or the one woman they both choose to love.

And then there is the enemy…

The Scourge—A genetic trade gone wrong, these menacing outsiders have twisted desires and sexual needs fierce enough to frighten away even the most adventurous. Their need to dominate and possess their women completely has led to a strange prophesy that they must fulfill…or die trying.

What a story! It is well written with beautifully developed characters. The personalities of the characters can be felt throughout the story. Baird and Olivia have a chemistry that is incredibly strong. You can feel their anger, laughter, sadness, happiness, and love all through the story. There are times that their antics will have you laughing out loud. The story is full of drama, suspense, action, and hot romance. It is an interesting concept behind the storyline and one that must be read. The story has a beautiful flow to it that makes you devour it and crave more.

Braid can give guys advice on how to please a girl. Olivia expects alien guy to be exactly like her dead end friends. The draft for brides for could be handled better. *Knock on the door, answered and bride in black fancy nightie* Olivia is carted off, unable to change clothes due to risk of flight. The book was well written and makes me want to ride more about the characters.

I wish there was more story to it, instead of just being in the bedroom. The beginning was good. The back story of Kindred made me want to keep reading.

The good points are that the concept is original, the text seems to have been proofread, and it's free. Down to the basics it's just another female-in-denial love story and those are already, literally, everywhere. And nowhere as extended as this one that it already became so absurd halfway through the book. Many might find the sexual tension exciting, but what I thoroughly dislike about using this type of internal conflict to nudge the story along is that it paints a picture of women as stupid and irrational and juvenile. I mean come on, the main character is a career nurse set in the future I was hoping for a more intelligent plot device (yes I will pay for it) but sadly the rest of the series seem to have the same theme of females who don't know themselves or what they want. Unless there's a semi intelligent woman in any of the upcoming stories I'm going to pass. I love the males though in this story though. But it's not enough to make me want to purchase the others right now. But it's just me. Don't take my word for it. Download a copy (it's free) and read for yourself.

So I created this account so that I could discuss this book with like minded fans of the series and I was greatly disappointed to find that most of the individuals on this site have given this book such negative reviews. Did I think that the book was perfect? No, but then what book is? Seriously, there is never going to be a book that everyone loves in its entirety.

Yes, Olivia as a main character can be stubborn and pigheaded, but that's just a personification of her sheer human nature. Every person is flawed and so every character must be flawed as well. If Olivia were perfect, people would be complaining that she was a Mary-Sue.

All in all, I found this book very enjoyable and would highly recommend it to any readers that like Human/Alien romances or writer-created universes.

I like the premise of this first novel in the Brides of the Kindred series. The different types of Kindred and their specific needs in "brides" is interesting. However, there were a couple of things that irritated me about the story.

One of the things that drove me nuts was Olivia's constant denial of her situation and her whiny behavior at being selected as a bride for the Beast Kindred, Baird. Also her unwillingness to even try to get to know him better as well as her rule breaking were hard things to handle. And her quick change of behavior to a "save me, save me" mentality whenever her poor decisions landed her in hot water had me yelling at Baird to get rid of her and find someone better.

I like Baird. He had infinite patience and he bent over backwards to try to accommodate his unwilling and annoying bride to be. His attempts to move ahead with his life after suffering horribly at the hands of the enemy made me want to get to know him better.

The flow of the story was fine as was the overall writing of this story.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, but be prepared for the overflow of the whiny cup.

Started here and kept going. Having made it all the way to the end of book 14, I figured it was a good idea to come back and review. For me, I loved this series particularly because of the amount of effort that went into the world and the characters. Yes, some heroines I wanted to shoot and really only kept going because I 1) needed to know anyway and 2) loved the male characters. Each character has their own quirk, and I appreciate that.

For Claimed itself, I think it is a nice start. It and one other book are the only ones where the whole Bonding ritual actually go ahead, the rest center on adventure. There were times in this one where I totally rolled my eyes, but I loved it and I think it was worth it to get all of them
