Publisher's Summary

Maggie Jordan is not supposed to be having adventures. Her mission is to go to Gaia, a new, unpopulated world, and study the native lifeforms there. So how come she finds herself in on the female-dominated Yonnie Six instead, rescuing a huge, muscular prisoner? The same prisoner she keeps seeing over and over again in her dreams...

Korexiroth - or Kor, as Maggie dubs him, is a slave who spent his life fighting in the savage arenas of the Blood Circuit. He’s got plenty of kills under his belt and more than enough reasons to run as soon as he gets free. But somehow he can’t make himself part from the girl who was brave enough to save him from certain death.  

Now, Maggie and Kor are on the run together, trying desperately to find someone to remove the alien device that was implanted in Maggie as punishment for her thievery of an expensive slave. The device, or “slut button”, as it is called, forces Maggie to sexual excesses the shy scientist has never known before - and Kor is the only one who can help her control her new urges.  

Kor is more than willing to help Maggie satisfy her new sexual hunger, but his own appetites are not so easily satiated. For there is a dark secret, a shadow from his past that stalks him and whispers of power beyond belief if only he will give himself over to darkness.   

Will they find a way to return Maggie to normal? Will Kor admit how he really feels for her? Or will the shadow from his past succeed in tearing them apart? 

You’ll have to listen to Chained, Brides of the Kindred, Book Nine, to find out.

Creative story!

I really loved the story. The narrator is amazing and I love all of the different voices he does and even adds in extras, for example, if the character sniffs or clears their throat in the story, the narrator acts it out, he doesn't just read the book. All in all I liked the book, but the heroin was way too timid and indecisive and also complained a lot, even up until the end of the story, so that got to me a little bit. After all that she had been through, I didn't feel like I saw any growth in the character, though she said she did change, that was not portrayed to me.

The whispering is annoying

The narrator is good at doing the male and female voices until he reads what the characters are thinking. He does that in a whisper and it drives me crazy.

Not my favorite

The whispering was so annoying, And the main female character was so silly and boarded on airhead, It was hard to listen to at times.

If only there was NO whispering.

The story is excellent, I love Evangeline Anderson. She is an author that would you read what ever she puts out because you trust her. The only problem I have is with the Narrator. All the whispering he did to portray thoughts and what not, ruined the story for me. I will try one more story and if he continues to whisper I probably wont buy any title he narrators for.

Exciting and sexy

This is another fun addition to the Kindred bride series, the main character Maggie is a little annoying at first but the story is so much fun that it doesn't matter. This book is exciting and imaginative, we get to spend a lot of time in new places and the world-building is awesome. Also, it is really sexy and romantic, if you like the kindred bride series then this is a must-read.

Great book

But Maggie makes me bat Shit crazy. It’s like 4 hours of her going “Oh, but, um” She’s going through some shit, I won’t lie. And you really can’t help but like her. I just want to shake her and tell her to sack up already.

Another good story

Same outline used different story. Still good even though by the third book it seems obvious how the story and adventure will go. OMG with the whispering again. Who whispers in their head when they think to themselves?

Blah

That girl is making me lose a few brain cells, so black slaves on Earth voluntarily had sex when they were in "breeding programs". Girl needs to go back to school.

Not my favorite of the series.

Not sure about this one, while there were some hot spots there was some not so hot that was very disturbing. Maggie’s whole obsession with her fiancé was dragged out way too long. I appreciate the fact that she wanted to be faithful, but damn it was starting to annoy me how long she clung to the concept. I appreciate that she shouldn’t cheat but look at the situation and judge it accordingly. Evangeline Anderson is always throwing the heroine into very dominate rolls to act as and as far as I can tell they cannot pull it off. Too many ums and ohs to be believable. Narrator is very good, with only the female voice being his weakness, but not terrible.

Good read.

There's a part in this book that reminded me a lot of the TV show Spartacus. Spartacus put on a fight with his best friend Varro for a rich child's birthday. At the end of the fight the child demanded Spartacus kill Varro despite it being a friendly fight for his entertainment. Unable to kill his friend, Spartacus refused knowing they would both die. Varro, also knowing they'd both die, pulled the sword deeper into his body as Spartacus held onto it in shock. What happened with Cor and his friend is exactly the same...like exactly.... even down to some of the things they say to each other. It makes me wonder if Evangeline watched Spartacus and took the idea from that or if it is just a coincidence.

another winner from Evangeline Anderson

Book 9 follows the series really well and I have enjoyed it every bit as much as the previous 8. I look forward to listening/reading to the rest just as much!
Maggie, who lives too much by What if, and guilt, rescues Kor and this results in many adventures and romance
What I love about the series so far is the follow up on previous characters and they are well written with good character balance and enjoyable stories!
