What a funny and fast paced original story that MJP has so cleverly written about - the Heroine Emma (a 22 yr old strong willed virgin) has lived with the constant domineering voice of Guy (aka Votan whose powerful, mysterious, arrogant and very opinionated - as most Gods are) for all of her life and she's finally had enough and sets off to rescue him.... or go mad.
Her never ending thoughts and snarky witty banter is hilarious and she's awe struck when she finally meets Guy, a drop dead gorgeous God whose mission is to free his fellow Gods and save the world from a villain bent on world domination. He's very attracted to Emma but doesn't want her involved so tells her very little which infuriates her and makes her vulnerable so she seeks the truth elsewhere but there are lies and misunderstandings galore but she's resilient and eventually finds it for herself.... but with dramatic deadly consequences.
There is lots of sexual sizzle, a couple of 'close encounters' but only one sex scene, yes this is a paranormal romance but most of the time they are arguing so it's not really romantic and the constant arguing and self-doubts does get repetitive towards the end which unfortunately seemed a bit rushed. However, this is a humorous, unpredictable, exciting and very enjoyable story with danger, mysteries, twists great characters and plenty of drama. With a small cliffhanger at the end with the arrival of a previously unseen character.
Worth a credit? It's a great start to a new PNR so very creditworthy and I'm looking forward to book 2 Accidentally Married To A Vampire and there's a short excerpt at the end to whet your appetite.
If you're looking for a sweet, tender, heartbreaking romance that's filled with great characters (including a handsome hunky ranch-hand) that are all involved in a touching plot that the author describes in such detail that you mentally picture each chapter and laugh, scream, cry and sigh with them - then look no further because this is your book.
I'm never too sure of a double-narration but this worked - Amy McFadden was just ok but Nick Podehl was just yummy. Not explicit or very descriptive sex scenes.
Worth a credit? Well YES it definitely would have been, but it's on sale (at the moment) which is even better (so what have you got to loose?) even at $7.34 it's worth the money.
Well a HEA ending to beat all other HEA endings but what Korum and Mia had to endure in order to finally get there is out of this world - literally.
At last we hear Korum's POV and what an amazing, gifted, loveable, drool-worthy, sexy, sweetie he has turned out to be as everything he does, he does for his love of Mia. They have truly grown as a couple who are deeply in love despite the obstacles of memory loss, a K traitor, the battle in the arena and meeting the all powerful Elders for a life changing decision. As they travel from NYC, Costa Rica and eventually the Krinard home planet the gifted author infuses the action-packed storyline with plot twists, genius inventions, paints a new world which is richly described in great detail and entwines it all in a very hot, romantic, passionate and truly exceptional love story that has overcome so much, including attitude and species differences, and I'm sure it's a love that will stand the test of time.
My one slight complaint is that the whole series would have been even better if it had been spoken by the same narrator and a more competent one too.
Worth a credit? I have lived with this series for some time now loving all it's many good and bad characters together with their highs and lows so I've been truly emotionally thrilled, chilled, captivated, enthralled and The Krinar Chronicles have deeply moved me so I am very sorry to have to say goodbye.
