Divinity Warriors 2: Fighting Lady JayneSeries One of the Divinity Universe
Jayne Hart has earned her independence by becoming Divinity Corporation's inter-dimensional boxing champion. Life is great, until a dirty fighter knocks her unconscious. Now, abandoned by the corporation in a parallel world, Jayne will use every weapon she has to be free once more. Even if it means running from her sexy new "husband" and spending the rest of her life in a primitive forest.
Ronen of Firewall longs for a woman to warm his bed and his home, but he had no intention of choosing a bride. In an unprecedented move, one chooses him. Never in the history of the breeding ceremony has a woman dared to lay claim. How can he resist the alluring Lady Jayne? She's confident and sure in her decision to be with him - until their wedding night when she's nowhere to be found. But, Ronen is not one to shy from a battle.
He will find Jayne and, when he does, he has one particular "weapon" in mind for taming his seductive, wayward wife.

The second book in the Divinity Warriors series starts in the same place as the first: the women we will follow in this series awaken in a jail cell, far removed from the plane on which they lived, with no apparent way to escape. Here we get a glimpse at the others in the series, but this is Jayne’s story, and she has this take no prisoners attitude about being sure you understand who she is and where she comes from.
Michelle Pillow has built a world in this series that manages to carry the feel of medieval times, while the women that have suddenly appeared are from dimensions far more technologically advanced and far less primitive. Rough situations are no real hardship for Jayne, however, a fighter who is used to holding her own; she is ready to make her mark on whoever appears to tell her no.
Ronen is another character that we have met briefly in the first book: a warrior with a heart of gold, he doesn’t believe that he or his brother stands a chance at love. Believing himself cursed, he is utterly amazed when he is chosen, by a woman, at the breeding ceremony.
Jayne is the woman who saw what appealed and claimed it: a boxer by trade, her attitude is less than traditional on Staria, she isn’t the docile or submissive woman that Ronen expected. He is, however, nearly instantly smitten and wishes to do what he can to make her happy, even as this conflicts with the alpha nature that has been honed through years of battle.
Again, the two have several clever interactions as they are both working to gain supremacy in the relationship, it isn’t until they both learn to compromise and trust in each other that their relationship moves from sexy tension and mind-blowing sensual and sexual scenes to heartfelt sensuality that hits the reader like a punch to the gut, the emotional impact as they come to share their feelings and love for one another is palpable and presents several moments to smile.
As this is running on the same time-line as the first book, the progression of Jayne and Ronen’s relationship is different than, yet just as satisfying as Soren and Lilith’s. Two wholly different and complete characters, developed with quirks and traits that are real and unique. Again the narration in this story is provided most capably by Rebecca Cook, who manages to insert the emotional inflections and personalities of the characters into her voicing that doesn’t distract but enhances the story and makes for a great listen.
I received an audiobook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
This is the second book in this series and the second I have read. This book started very strong. I particularly enjoyed the way it teases the other women in the Divinity Warrior series. Michelle M Pillow has a boundless imagination creating a complex, interesting and well developed character in Jayne with a rich backstory. She then drops her into a situation completely strange and unfamiliar ensuring a backdrop for evolutionary and revolutionary change. Michelle then provides Jayne with a warrior who has a gentle and docile energy lulling Jayne into a false sense of superiority. Jayne soon finds herself captivated by his passion and prowess along with being held captive by a society bent on transforming her. Jayne has been enhanced to enable her of fight off any foe but surprise is in store for her when she discovers the impossible happens and she is now supernaturally connected to engaging man.
Although this book can stand on its own, I am glad I read it in order and am looking forward to the others in this series.
Rebecca Cook is the perfect voice for Michelle M Pillow's books. There is a magical marriage of story and reader. I will definitely listen to more of this combo.
It was something different to close my eyes and just listen to the book being read to me, the tone and voice of the reader made for a enjoyable listen.
the way the Jane keeps trying to run away, causing her "Husband" to chase after her and having strong willed women
I didn't have a favourite scene since i really enjoyed all of it
Jane learning to love with her heart and not just fight with her fists
I enjoyed them each learning the ways of the other
