Thief of Hearts

I really enjoyed all of the books in this series so it was fun to go back to this one. Give them a try and you will not be disappointed. Angel Clark did a very good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I absolutely loved this book!!

Alna may have refused Garred at first but a love like there's just was meant to be. The Pruxnae custom definitely helped this along but they were definitely soul mates. His patience and her willfulness were a perfect match.

Duty v's Love....

This was my first book from this author and I liked the story. However, I didn't care for the narrators voice. Alna is committed to fulfilling her duties as a guard. Gared is determined to do what he is known best for and steal what he wants, and what he wants is Alna. Their journey is one of action, determination, consequences and love. Alna is determined to go back home and Gared is determined to do what needs to be done to prove to Alna that she is the woman for him. Alna must decide if loving Gared is worth giving up everything she's ever dreamed of. The ending was sweet and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

first in a new series

This is a short novella size read / listen that had a bit of a stockholm syndrome scenario but overall had a heartwarming ending. This was the story of a Queens Guard getting kidnapped by Garet who's part of a race known for their pillaging. As you read / listen you can't help but love Garet because of his devotion and selflessness. Good storyline flow with action, danger and a hea. Narration was very well done. An overall good listen and I'm looking forward to more!

Very Enjoyable!

This is what I love!
A whole lot of romance, while being light on the drama.
I love the story, writing style, worldbuilding and narration. It's romantic and fun.
Listening to Book 1 now, and it is great! Just as romantic and enjoyable as this novella.
Highly recommended!

To the beginning.

Going back to the beginning to hear Alna's story was good. Having already listened to 2 books in the series, it's fun to see how she was brought into the way of life and taken out of her "plans". As always with these books, the women have realistic reactions to these men and their kidnapping ways. I like that about this series!

4.5 Stars...A Story That Drew Me In

On a planet possibly colonized by Earth or earth-like planet, women are the rulers and guards
Alna has earned the privilege of being a guard to the queen. It’s the night before she is installed and she runs into a man, a race known to kidnap their brides. Gared immediately knows Alan is for him...so he kidnaps her.
Action, protectiveness, attraction, duty and misunderstanding takes place in this short story that packs a lot in a short time.
I started unsure how I was going to feel about it and quickly became drawn in and really enjoyed it and hoped for the couple to be together
The narrator, again at first i was unsure but came to love her narration.

Sweet and Sexy SciFi romance

A great escapist listen. If you love romance with charming handsome men seducing strong beautiful women, then you will love this romance. When Alna bumps into Gared, he is entranced by her and knows that she is the wife for him. As is the custom of the Pruxnae, Gared ab Einif kidnaps Alna Lomig to be wooed and wed. He hides them in a biodome in the jungle of her home planet awaiting pick-up by his brother who has gone a raiding trip of his own. Dangers lurk in the forest. Hearts can be broken. Enjoy!

First He Stole Her, Then Her Heart

Title: Thief of Hearts
Author: Lucy Varna
Format: Audio
Narrator: Angel Clark
Genre: SciFi Alien Romance, military, forced proximity, enemies to lovers
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book one of The Pruxnae
POV: Alna and Gared
Steam Level: Slow burn to steamy
4/5

Thief of Hearts is a cute sci-fi romance about a Pruxnae who stole his Lady Warrior and in the process stole her heart as well. I liked how each of their promises were true but also carried a bit of dishonesty in the unspoken parts of them. However, Lucy Varna also reminds us that words spoken in anger or jest can hurt as well. I wanted more of Alna and Gared and their story. I really liked Gared but Alna was just okay. Thief of Hearts is a fun start of The Puxnae series.

I received this audiobook for free from StoryOrigin. This is my honest and voluntary review.
