Publisher's Summary

Olivia Waterhouse just got drafted. Problem is, she isn't being forced into the Army, she's been chosen as a Kindred bride. The Kindred are huge alien warriors;a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male. After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward--the right to find brides among the population. Baird is a Beast Kindred who recently escaped imprisonment and torture. Through the torment and pain only one thing kept him sane; the thought of finding and claiming his bride,Olivia. His need to possess her is a burning intensity that threatens to consume them both. Angry at having her future and her family taken away from her, Liv vows to resist. But Baird isn't going to make it easy for her. Every week he is allowed to touch Liv more and more intimately and according to the contract she signed, she has to let him. She's determined to resist him but his touch sets her on fire. What's a girl to do? Olivia Waterhouse has been Claimed.

Not The Worst Story I've Listen To.....

I love looking for new series to read and came across this book on Amazon for $0.00 and was able to purchase the audio version for $1.99. Needless to say, I was not disappointed in my $1.99 purchase.

The fist book in the series has a decent plot, good character development, and I though the author did a good job of creating the "Kindred" warriors and world.

The story kept my attention from the very beginning and held it all the way until the end. The romance was more of an erotica feel and some parts did come across as cheesy. It's a good thing I do not get offended easily from hearing the P**** word a lot :-)!

I've already listened to the second book in this series, and think it was much better story, plot, and characters. (Waiting to see if book three will be available for whispersync.)

* Evangeline has another series called "Born of Darkness" and the first book in that series called "Crimson Debt", was really good.

What made the experience of listening to Claimed the most enjoyable?

The narrator's voice literally has the range of emotions that Baird and Olivia are feeling. It was as though she was giving a moment by moment account. The passion is what had me . I normally never buy audible book but this was just outstanding!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Claimed?

When Baird sees Olivia, the beautiful beast kindred warrior was just mesmerized by the beautiful woman, that he could be worthy of her.


Which scene was your favorite?

When they finally got together, the sex was both breathing and sensitive and the care he took with her. The fact that he could be gentle and when they were both into the sex was mindblowingly decadent.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Baird chose to give himself up to the scourge. I cried and cried, the love that he had was heartbreakingly beautiful.


Any additional comments?

I have to really wonder why I waited so long to read this book/ series that the idea of alien life beyond our round is absolutely enthralling and enticing to be captivated with the unknown. The first book surpasses my expectations of paranormal erotica. The book is so well-written and the character development and the plot is absolutely astounding. The many varieties of kindred has me fascinated. Evangeline Anderson is both innovative and enchanting. At times I found myself crying with the depth of emotion it was palpable. Give the book 5 stars….Absolutely fascinating! Olivia Waterhouse has a huge problem she has been drafted, assuming the role of reluctant bride to that of the kindred . Having just finished college, she has her life to live the experiences..but no more. Can she resist the aching need to be devoured . Period. Where did that come from. Period. She has been secretly communicating with her alien lover not knowing their link is that of bondage mates. She knows him or is it just a forbidden fantasy. Can she realize, her on reality or is she just destined to commit the unimaginable... The denying her lover, the one person meant for her? Can she realized it before the relationship is irrevocably destroyed? Baird is a beast kindred , beast in all sense of the word … Pure muscle… Hundred percent pure! Having been incarcerated by the scourge, the only thing that kept him sane was Olivia. Only thing in his mind is too find, claim and mate with her ! He literally wants to devour her… To consume her mind, body and soul. He can't fathom why she is so angry(her life has been stolen). Can he change her mind? Can they find what is staring them right in the face ? Their love… Unbeknownst to them and unspeakable evil is surrounding them!? Is it too late for Barid and Olivia? Barid is concupiscent , but can he show Olivia she is too? This is a full novel and it's so action-packed… Drama, romance and the sex is voracious and titillating. It's a must read for anyone looking for a exciting sci fi paranormal erotica. Evangeline, this first book is fantastic!

* Please note the review extends to the audible version as well as the written. The narration was sensational gave the book a whole new dynamic. The voice was clear ...mesmerizing and enthralling the book itself was a fantastic read, but the audio just made the book A thousand times better . Would recommend this and the entire series if you enjoy audiobooks this science fiction erotica masterpiece is for you .
