    This is weirdly well-done. I shouldn't even say "weirdly". Who's to say a sci-fi romance about a virgin making her way through an alien jungle with Riddick from Pitch Black can't be good? The plot is pretty straight-forward. What I found surprisingly impressive here is that at every moment where a mediocre author would have had the heroine make some stupid decision for unclear reasons, this author did not. You know that thing in many, many romances where the alpha male hero tells the heroine "Do This is weirdly well-done. I shouldn't even say "weirdly".

You know that thing in many, many romances where the alpha male hero tells the heroine "Don't go into that room", and she is sassy and does anyway, and then he has to save her, and the whole time you're like "AHHHHH WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE SO STUPIDDDDDD"? This book basically does not do that. If the hero says "Don't go into the jungle, the giant cats will eat you", the heroine generally thinks "How terrifying. The smart thing to do would be to stay put. That's what I'm going to do." It's just... it's so refreshing! I never felt that the heroine was an idiot. Which should not be rare, but so often is.

    Explosive sexual excitement -- demure heroine -- classic science fiction adventure -- it's all good! This book really changed my mind about the quality of erotic fiction on the internet. I thought it was all nasty, sleazy stuff about evil people doing bad things. (Read OFFICE SLAVE by JW McKenna for a perfect example of what I mean.) But PLANET X is different. The heroine in this story is so innocent and sweet she could really be Audrey Hepburn -- if Audrey made movies like BARBARELLA.

The heroine in this story is so innocent and sweet she could really be Audrey Hepburn -- if Audrey made movies like BARBARELLA. Teague the hero is a classic blue collar bad boy -- a Kleypas hero in space! What most astonished me was how the sci-fi backdrop was actually very "earth like." The heroine's past in the stuffy private school really reminded me of what women had to endure in the 1950's -- endless lessons on finding Mr. Right and always getting the ring on your finger FIRST. It's like MONA LISA SMILE only sexy and with characters you like, make that LOVE to see having sex and breaking the rules. This book blew my mind -- it is the best Ellora's Cave fiction I've ever read, and it inspired me to try many more!

They're betrayed and have to find their way back to each other. Great story. Would recommend this book.

I want you to close your eyes for a moment. Imagine the main character from those movies. Think about Riddick's defining characteristics. Think about how the movie Pitch Black opens with the meeting of the character Riddick. Now add some hair, take away the glasses and you've met Teague from Planet X. This guy is Riddick all over again! He can see in the dark. He's known as a scary killer and has a bounty on his head. His primary weapon of choice is a knife. The book even starts with the MCs meeting on a spaceship with Teague being held in the cargo bay as a criminal on his way to jail. The ship crash lands on a hostile planet. Any of that sound familiar?? I have to admit. I have a small crush on Riddick (And Vin Diesel). :) I've seen all the movies (even Pitch Black and I HATE horror and bugs), I've seen The Chronicles of Riddick (Director's Cut, of course. It's the only way to watch) several times and I've even seen the anime movie that segues Pitch Black into The Chronicles of Riddick: The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury. Teague reminds me so much of Riddick (especially Riddick in The Chronicles of Riddick) that I feel that Anderson is lucky she hasn't been slapped with a lawsuit, lol. So, you have to imagine that I have...a slight crush on Teauge. I love Teague but the heroine is waaaaaay past annoying. She does a lot of smexing Teague up but doesn't follow through. The crude (but accurate) term for her would be "cock tease." No, seriously. She really pushes it to that point. She gets down to everything with him BUT sex on a rather regular basis throughout the book. The book itself has moderate world-building but the plot idea was sound and enjoyable. The whole "Bride Planet" idea with the implants was very creepy and I wish that there was some type of follow up for that part of the plot. The time that the two characters spend on Planet X was sexy but quite unbelievable. I liked the dream sequences that Krisa had but they also made me mad. WHY can't she figure out what the reader figures out in a decent amount of time? And I got so sick and tired of Krisa not giving it up to Teague but rubbing herself all over him like a cat in heat that I wanted to reach into the book and slap her. The ending was...meh. I wanted more of Teague. That being said, I would have given this book 4 stars for Teague alone if the heroine wasn't such a wishy-washy annoying tease.

    Very good book. The first I read from Evangeline Anderson, and it gives me the envy to read more of her novels. In this book, we can follow the heroin who grow and take another dimension in her behavior. The story begin with a kind of little girl and finish with a woman. I didn't expected the end... happy ending but strange one... I cry when I read the last chapter. Very good book.

    Planet X is the first sci-fi romance Evangeline Anderson wrote and her storytelling really shines in this book. Her writing is not as refined as it is now (i.e. run-on sentences) and the editing is also poor (i.e. quite a few typos). But the romance and the plot are both SO ADDICTIVE and well-written. It's really easy to see past the sloppy editing. Krisa is a prim and proper heroine who was raised in a repressive society (picture sci-fi Victorian era).

It's really easy to see past the sloppy editing. Krisa is a prim and proper heroine who was raised in a repressive society (picture sci-fi Victorian era). Teague is a wanted ex-convict with a dangerous reputation. How do these two completely different people meet? Well, they are traveling on the same ship. Krisa is on her way to a planet to marry a wealthy Lord. Teague has been captured and he's on his way to a prison planet. But when the ship crashes on Planet X, Krisa and Teague have to stick together to survive the jungle on this strange planet. And their journey is WILD. The chemistry between this good girl and bad boy is pure 🔥🔥🔥 The plot is exciting and the world building is creative. I was thoroughly addicted to this book. Krisa is the most rational Evangeline Anderson heroine I have come across so far. Krisa's upbringing was rigid and repressive, so it understandably takes time for her to loosen up and realize that she belongs next to Teague. Her stubbornness does get a bit frustrating toward the end, but Krisa makes up for it with her resourcefulness. Aside from the sloppy editing, the only complaint I have is the very last conflict that came up in the final act. I didn't like that this particular type of conflict was sprung on me at the 80% mark. Furthermore, it was resolved way too quickly. An epilogue would have done a better job wrapping up the story. CW: sexual assault (described), slavery (mentioned and described), rape (mentioned), fatphobia (disturbing descriptive words used to describe a fat character)

I had forgotten how annoying I find Anderson's dumb but well-endowed heroines with the innocent and naive schtick. Even Anderson's trademark dirty talk erotica didn't resonate; she has written better. Planet X did live up to its name, though, with the uninhibited natives.

Even Anderson's trademark dirty talk erotica didn't resonate; she has written better. Planet X did live up to its name, though, with the uninhibited natives. What saves this book is the changing environments (crashed ship, pastel jungle, village life) and the imagination that went into crafting the predator soondar and the flora and fauna of Planet X. It was weird but interesting. Then at 85% in or so the story takes a more sinister twist, and I wondered how Krisa and Teague would manage to eke out a happily ever after. Book source: Purchased.

    3/5; 3 stars; B I'm glad one of my Goodreads friends recommended this book because I had pretty much written off this author. This book had some space adventure, some humour, and a fairly slow developing romantic thread (slow for sci-fi romantica). Usually Anderson's heroines annoy me because they dither and tend toward TSTL but this one half a brain.

    I’m almost a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this simple and straightforward tale of innocent virginal girl and bad boy hook up. There’s nothing profound about it, and it has the usual Evangeline-campiness to it, but the characterization worked for me. Krisa is a young woman on a journey to meet her betrothed on another planet. Unfortunately for the very young and beautiful Krisa, though he’s rich and powerful, he’s also quite old and not exactly the nicest guy. Certificate of virginity in I’m almost a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this simple and straightforward tale of innocent virginal girl and bad boy hook up. There’s nothing profound about it, and it has the usual Evangeline-campiness to it, but the characterization worked for me. Krisa is a young woman on a journey to meet her betrothed on another planet. Unfortunately for the very young and beautiful Krisa, though he’s rich and powerful, he’s also quite old and not exactly the nicest guy. Certificate of virginity in hand, She settles in for her trip to his planet, but is curious about the other passenger; who- get this: Is a huge, dark haired guy with glowing silver eyes. Yep, Anderson actually did something shockingly different and made his eyes silver instead of amber. He’s chained up, and she finds out he is a dangerous escaped prisoner who’s killed lots of people. But rather than fear him, Krisa can’t seem to stay away from him. She’s drawn to him but doesn’t understand why. Their ship crashes on Planet X and after an attempted rape by the captain, Teague saves her and kills the guy, and they are off to find a way off the dangerous jungle planet. Krisa realizes that most of the stories about Teague are exaggerated or flat out lies. He’s actually a good guy and takes care of her, which she appreciates. Along the way, they meet a primitive tribe of people, and of course they like to enact public sex rituals and dress in revealing clothes. In order to fit in, so must Krisa. And that’s when the story starts to get a bit hotter, as she pretty much feigns resistance to the sexual tension between her and Teague, who is desperate to have her. Luckily, there are no rape like scenes and anything that resembles dubious is pretty light on the “dubious” part. Krisa is reluctant to lose her V card but only because she knows that if she is returned to her future husband, he’ll either disown her or insist of restoring her hymen to its virginal state. Her desire for Teague is pretty apparent through most of the book however, and she clearly consents to the inevitable love-making that happens between them. Teague is characterized as a bad-boy with a good heart and strong desires for Krisa. Because Krisa is characterized as very girly and naïve, I felt they worked together well as a couple, with Teague being the more experienced one, showing her the way, so to speak. Sometimes this dynamic doesn’t work for me, but it did here. There was almost a romantic comedy like vibe to the story, with Krisa fussing over her “cincher” and being embarrassed over breaking all of the proprieties she learned at her girl’s finishing school. Don’t get me wrong, it’s certainly not brilliant by any means, but it was entertaining, and it was also nice not having to slog through pages and pages of angst and the heroine unable to decide if she could handle being with the hero and if she really cared for him or not. The only thing that got tedious was Krisa’s wondering if she could handle giving it up to him when it was obvious that she not only wanted him, but that it was going to happen one way or another. But it’s a short read, so I can’t complain too much. In the end, (view spoiler)[they are saved, but Krisa’s memories are erased and she is sent to her fiancé. Fortunately, she is rescued by Teague who couldn’t let her go. He takes her to his ship where he proceeds to bring back her memories with a little sexy time. She remembers everything and then they arrive at a new planet where they are safe from extradition. (hide spoiler)] It’s a very short and abrupt ending, and probably should have been fleshed out a bit more. It seemed like maybe Anderson left the story for a while, wondering exactly how to finish it, and then came back to tack on the ending. The other complaint that I have is that the dialogue got annoyingly repetitive after a while. Teague finished just about every sentence speaking to Krisa with either “little girl” or “sweetheart”, and I thought this got a little excessive. Other than that though, it was a decent read.

    WOW! I didn't expect to enjoy this book THIS much. I couldn't put it down and read it all in one very long day! Krisa comes from "Bride Planet" and has been taught since the age of 12 to be the perfect wife. She is bought and paid for by a very rich old man on another distant planet since she was 13, but has had to wait eight years to make the journey to see him. On her way there, she meets Teague - a blindfolded prisoner who she is led to believe is a callous murderer. I won't say more of the plo WOW! I didn't expect to enjoy this book THIS much.

She is bought and paid for by a very rich old man on another distant planet since she was 13, but has had to wait eight years to make the journey to see him. On her way there, she meets Teague - a blindfolded prisoner who she is led to believe is a callous murderer. I won't say more of the plot because I don't want to spoil it, but I will definitely clear a few problems some people have had with this book. Teague calls Krisa "little girl" on many, many occasions. It's her nickname, and I can understand that it sounds creepy at first. But when you stop and really think about it, it's not. He is definitely much older than Krisa, and he's also a physically huge guy. Krisa is a naive, young lady, very petite next to him. Because she's so much younger and smaller than him, he simply regards her as "little girl." It's either that or "sweetheart" which I much prefer. Yes, Teague is a spitting image of Riddick. Is that really something to complain about though? There's a lot that makes him his own character aside from the physical details. He has a sad upbringing, and a very sad brush with love. He's the perfect rugged, alpha male love interest for someone like Krisa. A lot of people have pointed out that Krisa was a stupid tease. First of all, she has been brainwashed for years to act a certain way - was drilled with the understanding that she will serve her husband, that her only worth in life is beside the man that has bought and paid for her. She has been brainwashed so much, she thinks that going to this faraway planet is her only destiny, and without it she is nothing. Which leads me to the whole virginity thing. The only thing she has to offer is her virginity certificate to the old soon-to-be-husband. Keeping in tact her virginity is the most important thing for her because she has been led to believe all her life that it is the most important thing to have. Couple that with having no idea how Teague really feels for her, and whether he is even using her to satiate his wants, it is what keeps pushing her back. To call her a tease is very silly. I can only think of one time she initiated something with Teague, and that was when she was dreaming! Aside from that, HE was the one who wanted her to feel certain things. He always initiated it in hopes of her finally submitting to him. He worked hard for that to happen, and the sexual build up was very frustrating as a reader! But it was worth the pay off ;) Unfortuantely, the only thing I didn't really enjoy was Krisa's dreams. They just didn't do it for me. But I loved the whole concept and story line. I wish the ending was fleshed out more; but maybe that's just me wanting more of Krisa and Teague. I really wish the writer would write a second book to this because I would read it in a heartbeat to get me a dose of some Teague :)

    I was a little disappointed in this one. Was really hoping to like it better than I did. I had a problem feeling a connection between the H/h, Teague and Krisa. Teague is a convict who was being transported on the same ship that Krisa was on, who was heading to her future husband's planet.

Krisa is trying very hard to keep her virginity intact around Teague but struggles more and more. Overall, this wasn't a bad read it was just kinda meh for me. SciFi really just doesn't do it for me I guess.

Krisa was raised in in a secluded boarding school and is off her home world for the first time. She's on her way to meet her future husband, Lord Radisson. When boarding the space transport she encounters a man unlike anyone she's ever met. A feral man named Teague who is dangerous but stirs her curiosity and interest. Teague is what's known as a feral. He was raised a slave and had a hard life. He was captured for past crimes and put on a ship to be transport to prison. He manages to (although we never find out how) make the spaceship crash land on a planet so he can make his escape. Unexpectedly, Krisa's sleep pod gave out and she ends up awake too. To keep her safe, Teague has to take her with him. There's a lot to deal with, with the struggle through the jungle of the strange planet and predatory animals stalking them. Teague has been there before but Krisa hasn't been in the wild at all... not even on her home planet. It's a struggle for her to manage (even with Teague taking care of her) but she does pretty good. She doesn't whine or anything and toughens up in response to the need. Things are also tense in the personal area. Teague obviously is attracted to Krisa but wont rape her. He does touch her and make her feel things she knows she shouldn't and wont let her lie about the fact that she likes it. Krisa is supposed to remain a virgin for her future husband but has a hard time not giving in to Teague, especially once she starts having feeling for him. One part I really liked this part about the story (view spoiler)[She didn't just give him her virginity right off. She held off and tried to do the right thing and only gave in once she realized that she loved him and wanted to stay with him. I thought it was a cool way for the story to go because I wouldn't have liked Krisa as much if she had just given it up right off the bat. (hide spoiler)] . There are issues that need to be dealt with when Lord Radisson comes to find Krisa. Things go wrong and there's some drama but I liked the way the story ended and was happy for Krisa and Teague in the end. I really enjoyed this book (I'm just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it as it's been on my to-read list for ages)...It's a sweet and sexy read with a good plot and interesting characters. I'd recommend it. :D

But that fell short too. Meh.

    This was another great book from Evangeline Anderson and longer than her usual stories. She is the queen of sci-fi erotica. The alien world she creates are so original as are the creatures/people...you kinda feel like you're right there along side Teague and Krisa. He's so sexy and has such a dirty mouth. It's too bad that it took so long for Krisa to clue in...she is innocent to a fault. There was so much buildup that I was a little disapointed with the speedy ending...need more details.

Whatever happened to Teague's slimy shipmate. His betrayal cannot go unpunished. Can we get a sequal please?

    I won't be too harsh on this book because I knew exactly what I was getting myself into when I bought the dang thing. Books like this can either make you fall in love or make you want to throw up. I was somewhere in between, which doesn't happen often for me. It's either love or hate. Anyway, props for a nice unique plot, but minus for it being really cheesy and sloppy.

    This is a stand-alone novel with nothing to do with the Kindred series, but it is definitely a different kind of mail-order bridal service. If you have the money and prestige, you can handpick your mate when she's barely a teen, have her be whisked away to an academy where she is taught all the skills and etiquette the wife marrying into the über-zero-point-one-percenters. In this case, our blushing bride has finished her brainwashing courses and is being escorted to her future husband's planet This is a stand-alone novel with nothing to do with the Kindred series, but it is definitely a different kind of mail-order bridal service. If you have the money and prestige, you can handpick your mate when she's barely a teen, have her be whisked away to an academy where she is taught all the skills and etiquette the wife marrying into the über-zero-point-one-percenters. In this case, our blushing bride has finished her brainwashing courses and is being escorted to her future husband's planet when she encounters her first clash of the real world – a captain escorting a dangerous felon who is willing to give her a few lessons that her lord might find interesting... but that would negate her virginity certification (comes with a warranty paper, too!). She escapes one trap, only to find herself strangely intrigued by this convicted criminal, a feral, so to speak, who is being transported by the same captain to a high-security prison. But a gift of water ends up being the nexus of opportunities in which the transporter vessel crash-lands on Planet X, rumored to be riddled with dangerous jungles filled with cannibalistic natives. In fact, they say no one ever returns. ("So how does anyone know that there are cannibals there?" our pretty but seemingly ditzy heroine asks. Good question!) So it's the standard marooned-on-an-island-which-just-happens-to-be-a-planet story, to survive dangerous fauna, to meet interesting humanoids, to not know who you can trust, etc., romance story. Yes, you guessed it! Our heroine sorely tests her survival skills, something never taught by her charm school, and attracts more than just one man's attention. It's great brain candy when you need it. Is it worth the purchase? I like its novel-size treat which kept me amused. There are a few scientific errors that a good editor should have spotted. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation aren't that of a fourth grader, though I am still seeing the same post-1960s mistakes being made. I guess that means I'm an old broad who wishes everyone read books when they were written truly well. (But I am realizing that not everyone can be as exacting as JRR Tolkien.) I would reread this when the brain was back in brain-candy mode. I've already reread parts – the last 20% to be specific. I find amesia-under-duress interesting when it comes to character development... and to see how far a writer will go to try and avoid a deus ex machina. It was close.

    HOLY SMOKES THIS WAS ONE FUCKING GOOD BOOK AND GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOUR LADY PARTS DRIPPING OR JUMPING YOUR PARTNER AFTER THIS! BEST BOOK I HAVE READ ALL WEEK! Sexual tension, chemistry, perilous jungle scenarios and a whole new world? CHECK! After watching the LEGEND OF TARZAN, I had the hots for more primitive men troupe and this one didnt fail me and had me sighing so wonderfully for the characters. OUR HERO is a FERAL a different kind of species, quite human yet more enhanced and animalistic HOLY SMOKES THIS WAS ONE FUCKING GOOD BOOK AND GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOUR LADY PARTS DRIPPING OR JUMPING YOUR PARTNER AFTER THIS! BEST BOOK I HAVE READ ALL WEEK! Sexual tension, chemistry, perilous jungle scenarios and a whole new world? CHECK! After watching the LEGEND OF TARZAN, I had the hots for more primitive men troupe and this one didnt fail me and had me sighing so wonderfully for the characters. OUR HERO is a FERAL a different kind of species, quite human yet more enhanced and animalistic which makes him oh so delicious. Despite being labeled a murderer, he did what he had to survive and has finally made himself a free man ish until he got caught and met our heroine on the ship. Its like watching STAR TREK crossover with TARZAN or LOST. Teague is an amazing alpha male who takes good care of his women and very patient and he doesn't consent to rape because his previous mate had suffered the consequences and committed suicide. He is basically a survivor, fighter and a hell of a good lover. OUR HEROINE was on her way to be delivered to her future husband when Teague occurred and crashed the ship, thus they were thrown together later. Coincidence? Maybe but one whiff of her scent and our wild hero has marked her as his own. GRRRRrrr. She has always been told what to do, how to act and how to dress, basically a prude and doh a virgin, so Teague and her otherworldly experiences are a shock to her which eventually teaches her to LIVE and become her true self. OVERALL this was a 100% panty burner and not to mention the entire story was well paced and the sexual tension was Fucking A. The only annoying thing was when the heroine holds off her virginity so much that I kind of pity Teague and admire his resolute grip on his baser instincts. THERE WERE A GREAT COUPLE! FORGET THE DODGY BOOK TITLE AND LOW BUDGET BOOK COVER, THE STORY WAS ORGASMIC. WILL DEFINITELY READ MORE ANDERSON BOOKS.

    It wasn't bad, but I wasn't wow'd by it either. It just didn't get my gears spinning. There wasn't anything really wrong with it. I think it was because of how it felt like a historical romance wrapped in a scifi shell (there is probably a better word for this but it's escaping me at the moment). All the time and effort spent on setting the image of proper dress, decorum, company, or speech, it wasn't what usually draws me into the story and holds me as a scifi fan.

I did like the dream sequences though. The dirty talking during the sex scenes and dreams were nice too, but I wish there were more actual sex scenes than dream almost-sex. Again, not horrible, just not great either. Not my favorite of Evangeline Anderson. I have however enjoyed very much the other scifi stories by Anderson. So, if you are interested, I would recommend her Kindred series.

    Read this a while ago so my review won't be very detailed. But first of all—oh wow. OH HOT DAMN; I loved this book! This was my first time reading an erotica with sci-fi elements incorporated and what a nice change! The plot was interesting and engaging and this book wasn't focused solely on sex which I quite liked. Teague was a sexy beast. 'Nuff said on that. ;) I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be looking forward to read Anderson's other books. Read this a while ago so my review won't be very detailed. But first of all—oh wow.

    My real rating is a 3.5 out of 5 but I rounded up so the book wouldn't be bumped down. It's a very good book, if not a little typical for it's genre. I would have enjoyed if the author had been a bit more elaborate in the science fiction portion of the novel. Their world building was just a tad too bland for my tastes, but then I have been spoiled by some exceptional authors so I didn't let that affect my review too much.

The only sad thing would be if I picked this book up again, i wouldn't read the whole thing just favorite parts. Which upsets me since books should be reread for the story not the fun chapters. Good news is I would pick it up again, not many books can say that ;).

    Not my usual type of read, so I'm a bit unsure how to rate this. I wonder if all books in this genre are so corny, because the plot to this was exceptionally corny. Krisa has been bred off a planet noted for churning out Stepford wives who will never cheat.

I wonder if all books in this genre are so corny, because the plot to this was exceptionally corny. Krisa has been bred off a planet noted for churning out Stepford wives who will never cheat. On board a luxury ship bound for her husband by contract's planet, she meets an alien convict who's bound and blindfolded in the cargo space. (Really? A convict who's held in the cargo container, and not even in a cage? And why wasn't he put in cryosleep?) Krisa is then almost raped by a captain who regularly makes this trip...which means that convicts are REGULARLY bound in the cargo space of a luxury ship? Anyway, somehow the alien convict, Teague manages to save her by snapping the neck of the captain. She doesn't feel bad about this (which is not terribly surprising, since he was about to rape her. Well, as it turns out, her cryosleep container malfunctioned and only closed halfway over her, which was why she was up and around. Somehow the ship crash-lands on this scary foreign planet, and Teague gets out (naturally, since he would otherwise be taken to some presumably better prison than the cargo space of a luxury ship. He tells Krisa that she'd better come with him, as the other people in their cryosleep containers are safe from the wild animals on this planet, but she isn't...what, on a luxury ship, there are NO other cryosleep containers?? I can't believe that for a second. The luxury ship is described akin to an ocean liner like the Titanic, and there aren't ANY OTHER cryosleep containers?? So Krisa has to follow Teague to the planet, where it's inhabited by humanoid aliens who are green, and she's highly prized because she has dark hair (whereas they all have light hair...riiiiight, the first thing that other humanoids care is the color of an alien's hair). The alien race has erotic and pornographic rituals in front of a fire. There are other things going on, and yadda yadda yadda, Teague is betrayed by someone he trusted and Krisa is taken back to her husband by contract, who activates the chip imbedded by the Stepford Neighborhood Association and she forgets about Teague but still has dreams about him. Oh right, I forgot to mention that Krisa has erotic dreams about a "dream man," and because she's always sleeping with Teague, she always rubs him all over and then she wakes up and says, "Noooooo I can't, because of my V-contract." I'm quite surprised that he, as a CONVICT, doesn't just rape her and get it out of the way. I mean, that's basically what happens pages later anyway. Or she decided to get over the V-contract thing. I can't really remember. An initially amusing read but not much in the way of actual science.

Takes him water. removes the blind fold, she has to see his eyes. they are silver, or black, depending upon which eyelid he uses. he has a second lid like a animal, he is after all a feral. A giant of a man, and she smells his scent too,,, and is drawn to him.. It is time to go in to hyper drive.. all people are to be in stasis sleep, the ship crashes some how..... Teage is free.. and of course some how her statis chamber is not closed so she wakes. But Captain Ketchum also wakes, and tries to rape her. Teage hears her scream his name and he saves her.. Kills Ketchum and takes her along. tells her she will die there, so she goes with him, and they have a adventure of a life time. But she is a virgin, don't forget.. has her certificate too.. to proof it. A grade of BRIAR ROSE BRIDE PLANET and then Teage tells her of his past as a slave and shows her a chip in her neck, she will be a slave too to her future husband... She cannot get that out of her mind. no control over her own mind??? it terrorizes her.. So much happens in this book, they meet cannibals, other aliens, animals to will eat them and are telepathic, and then Teage's so called friend betrays him... and Krisa. All for money you know the universe turns on $$. This books is one of this authors best writes in my opinion. I could see every single things he wrote in my own mind. Every color, smell the descriptions she gave, feel the touches of Teage. She wrote her ASS OFF.... I LOVED IT.. GIVE US PART TWO OF THIS BOOK EVANGELINE I KNOW IT IS IN YOUR HEAD SOMEWHERE YOU CAN DO IT... MORE.............

When Krisa lays eyes on him, she is over come with curiosity and something she can't put a finger on.

She goes looking to see if anyone else is awake and runs into the Captain, who in turn tries to rape her, but before that can happen Teague comes to her rescue and saves her. He also tells her that she needs to come with him if she wants to survive. They spend about a month in the jungle dealing with dangerous creature, people that like to each of people and a back stabbing shipmate. The ending left a lot of questions and I guess the author wants you to imagine your own real ending for them. Pros: Teague . . . Teague . . . Teague. The man was sex on a stick and so much more. For me, he was the character that made the book worth reading. I loved how dominant and sure of himself me was. He completely embodied what an alpha male is. Cons: The ending was the only thing that bothered me about this book. I left me with so many questions and also it felt like it was cut short without answering any of them. Will Krisa ever get her real memories back or will they always hurt her? What happened after they landed on the new planet? Do they ever have kids or really settle down? What about lord stick up his but, does he try and find her again? Characters: Teague & Krisa Page Turner: Yes Series Cont: No, but I wish it did! Recommend: Yes

    1/5 stars (I'm only giving this one star for the pink fluffy alien pet) Yes, sometimes I'm in the mood for a 'fugitive alien fleeing through jungle with a virgin mail order bride' erotica book. Sue me. Usually I can rate books like these based on pure enjoyment factor, but this one just made me want to scream. A lot. The heroine was probably one of the most annoying and indecisive characters I've ever read, and the alien literally had no personality. Also, when I read futuristic/survival erotica, 1/5 stars (I'm only giving this one star for the pink fluffy alien pet) Yes, sometimes I'm in the mood for a 'fugitive alien fleeing through jungle with a virgin mail order bride' erotica book. Sue me. Usually I can rate books like these based on pure enjoyment factor, but this one just made me want to scream. A lot. The heroine was probably one of the most annoying and indecisive characters I've ever read, and the alien literally had no personality. Also, when I read futuristic/survival erotica, I'm usually down with the protective-man, submissive-female theme because sometimes I'm into that, okay? It can be hot when done right. But this book was sending off rapey vibes left and right. (view spoiler)[ Basically, the h finally decides to show her alien how she feels by giving him a blow job in front of the whole alien tribe (lmao wtf did I spend 4 hours reading today!!) and when the alien whisks her back to their room to have sex, she starts crying and refusing to have sex with him, and he basically tells her to shut up and take it bc he knows her body wants it (which of COURSE she does). Prior to the bj, the h really made it seem like she was ready to go the whole way with the alien, so I was just really confused when she started crying and freaking out about having sex with him. It was just so rapey. So, so rapey. (hide spoiler)] . Also, the heroine kept referring to Teague (the H) as 'the Feral' (which is his alien breed) throughout the book. I don't get why she just didn't call him by his name all the time, especially if she loved him? It was just weird. In summary, this was just a weird ass, problematic alien erotica romance.
