On the planet Belthola, a unique group of
males are born empathic. When they reach adulthood, they
become part of a brotherhood known as the Maleri. These men
offer their skills to people on Belthola and other worlds as
One such Maleri is Coltas Oldarie, a man
wishing for a mate of his own and determined to find him. Col
journeys to Earth to seek his mate and discovers Matthew
Ashton and his brother Eric. At first, Matt denies a bond
between himself and Col, but Col is intent on overcoming every
obstacle to make Matt see that they are meant to be together.
First in a scorching hot futuristic
series, "Mate Hunt" neatly sets up the Maleri men and their
place in the universe. Extremely sexy and fast paced, yet
somehow endearing and light hearted at the same time, "Mate
Hunt" is very entertaining.
Double or Nothing
After witnessing his brother Matt happily
mated to Maleri empath Col, Eric Ashton agrees to journey with
them back to Colís home in Taskin City on Belthola. At a
party upon their return, Eric meets twins Greyian and Sethian
Dennon who turn out to be Ericís fated mates. Instant lust
and a growing bond have Eric accepting Grey and Seth fairly
quickly, but chaos ensues when Eric is kidnapped by a
scientist and taken to the planet Arela. Itís up to Grey and
Seth to save their mate and unearth a growing conspiracy
before it is too late.
Adventure and sizzling encounters make
"Double or Nothing" an exciting story you canít put down.
Twin hotties Grey and Seth and the more sexually experienced
Eric heat up the pages, while the mysterious kidnapping gave
me another reason to thoroughly enjoy "Double or Nothing" even
Between Love and Law
Head of Security for Taskin City,
Chasetien Kaldor is a man dedicated to his time-consuming and
fulfilling job, yet he yearns for the one thing he doesnít
have: a mate. As he gets older, though, the psychic energy in
his brain is building steadily and only his mate can bring him
relief and happiness. A gut feeling one night leads him to
the man who would be his, a thief named Cazius Rey.
Questionable art collector Kogan Delmon, recently arrived from
the planet Lamarra, is blackmailing Caz into stealing a
Belthola national treasure, but not if Chase has anything to
say about it. Chase plans to help his mate catch a
blackmailer and then claim Caz for his very own.
"Between Love and Law" is sexy,
provocative, and all-around wicked fun to read. The Maleri
stories just keep getting better and better, and I am having a
great time reading this series. Chase and Caz scorch the
pages, all male and hot as blazes! A greedy collector, an
unwilling thief, and a cop make a solid triangle in "Between
Love and Law".
Ride ĎEm Cowboy
At the tender age of twelve, Zebian Bakar
lost both his parents and learned early to keep his emotions
tightly bottled up. Years later, Zeb is highly skilled in
data gathering and computer analysis while still emotionally
distant to others. Zeb is sent to Earth, to Wyoming and the
Free Plains Ranch to learn about cattle ranching and breeding
for another planet planning on starting their own ranching
system. Part owner of Free Plains Jace Fremont doesnít want a
Ďgreen horní on the ranch, but one long look at Zeb and the
distractions begin for both men. When danger threatens, the
men stop denying their love, but how can two men from
different worlds work things out?
Sexual tension between main characters
Zeb and Jace literally jumps off the pages in "Ride ĎEm
Cowboy." Two very different men from Zeb, the Taskin City
computer expert, to Jace, the rugged cattle rancher, offer a
unique perspective on life to each other. These characters
make the plot fun, sexy, and most importantly a pleasure to
Years ago Jorrian Tavaris, a Maleri
empath, commited an unforgivable sin and was banished from
Belthola. Since then, Jor has spent his life drifting from
planet to planet, living as a gambler determined to not search
out his mate and die by himself when the psychic energy
buildup is too much for his brain.
Dr. Dane Jeffers once loved a Maleri, but
his mate was killed while on a diplomatic mission. These days
find him on the backwater planet Casithia where he treats
patients with what little medicine is available. Fate brings
Jor to Dane and to the horror of both, they are destined
mates. Although they plan on ignoring their bond, another
stroke of fate shoves the two together during a quarantine and
makes things incredibly tough for the men to ignore each other
and the bond between them.
"Redemption" pulls at the heartstrings
and demonstrates the importance of turning left or right when
you reach that fork in the road. Powerful emotions make
"Redemption" the strongest one-two punch in the Bonds of the
Maleri series. Two hot guys in pain are hard to beat and what
a great pair they are!
Bonds of the Maleri runs
the gamut from light-hearted to heavy drama with just about
everything in between. The one common thread in all the
stories is the very strong characterizations and the
incredibly hot, carnal sexual situations between the men.
Talented author Kate Steele doesnít hold back and makes sure
each story is even better than the last one. This is
definitely a something-for-everyone kind of series. I
Joyfully Recommend Bonds of the Maleri.
