This Story Is Red Hot

Publisher's Summary

Though warned of the Tellurian slave's uncooperative nature, Guild Assassin Dzer-Jin Vonn is intrigued when the alluring redhead promises to obey him and be the best slave ever. Her prior owner misused her but did not quench her spirit; her tongue cuts with amusing precision.

Abducted from Earth by aliens, ripped from life as she knows it, she gives her new master only the label "slave" to call her by. She's landed in a culture where violence is foreplay. Yet her sexy master stands apart from his peers; he shows compassion.

When Dzer-Jin is challenged to slice her skin for public titillation, she agrees to the display with no bonds but trust. He earns status for her obedience but she frets he'll tire of his "pet" if she doesn't service his sexual appetites. The passion seething between them terrifies her. Is her desire to escape to Earth stronger than her need to serve Dzer-Jin's lust - or her own?

Meh story, beautiful narration

I love Adam Howden, so this wasn't purchased because I liked the book or the author. He's utterly fantastic and it's worth getting it just to hear Anders read you to sleep.

Holy hotness!

This is essentially a love story tucked inside a fantasy-BDSM erotica story. It’s fairly classy and restrained (a good thing in my opinion), and I imagine I’d enjoy reading this one as a book, as well.

As for the audible aspect....my dear heavens, I would love to listen to Adam Howden read anything, up to and including the ingredients list from a box of twinkies. His voice and accent are delicious, yet he changes it for the dialogue of hero Dzer-Jinn and somehow comes up with something deeper and even more sexy. I always seem to have an issue with male narrators doing female dialogue, especially with an American accent. I did have a few instances of being pulled up by that, but it is much less frequent than in other books, probably partly due to the heroine having minimal dialogue, and much of that said in a low tone of voice. This female voice issue I have is totally subjective though, so take that bit with a grain of salt.

Overall, assuming you’re okay with the subject matter, I highly recommend. If you’re MORE than okay with the subject matter (I see you over there!) this is a do not miss!!

Great narrator!!

Since rating systems don’t really seem to work anymore (as in something receiving less than 5 stars is not worth giving a chance) I am giving this a 5 star rating with the caveat that this is a very light read. But if you have the romance package worth a listen. The standout is the narrator. Love, love, love him and I put him on par with Greg Tremblay/Greg Boudreaux with his beautiful voice. I would love to see more from this narrator!
