This was an interesting book, I couldn't put it down. I saw MANY plot holes, but it grabbed me from the first paragraph with its sensuality and didn't let go. I haven't read any other alien romance books, so I can't say if the plot was unique but it definitely kept my interest.
5,000 years ago a settlement on earth wished they were somewhere else and because of a secret ore under their settlement their wish came true. They found themselves on a planet with two moons, and built a life away from the chaos happening on Earth. Now in present day that once bound clan has separated in a sort of north versus south way....one side having a lot of the secret ore, the other side thinking they are entitled to it. There has been war for centuries both sides taking massive hits, both sides having bred to hate the other, and both sides committing atrocities against their enemies. How does this involve one earth woman who can hear the thoughts of others, and who one alien finds himself infatuated with....well, she is the key that could bring peace to the other planet, and maybe one mans heart.
The world, the story, the characters I REALLY LIKED! I'm willing to get book two when it comes out next month just to see where the author will go with this world. There were many times where the plot just seemed to magically fix itself, which left me feeling kind of short changed, but I still want to know more about this world.
The narrator was NOT good. Couldn't do men's voices, had zero inflection when the men were suppose to be growling, or talking low, or being seductive. The main female she had inflection for, but with the men it just was non existent. There was an alien word that meant beautiful, and the narrator spoke it as the word "Linda"...this was confusing because several times the main lady was called Linda, which hello is a girls name and not HER name. At one point the leading lady asked about the word and the guy explained it and she "tried to pronounce it"....um hello if it was actually pronounced As Linda there would be no reason to TRY to pronounce it, kind of a common word!
Anyway, I would say for this first installment it was worth a credit and a sale but not a buy.

What would have made Quicksilver Dreams better?
This story dragged on and on and on. I was bored. The heroine was so whiny. I get that she had an awful childhood and had abandonment issues but she risen above "the trailer park". Her inner dialogue showed she was insecure, immature and just plain unlikable.
What could Danube Adele have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Shorten it a little or not make the heroine better.
Would you be willing to try another one of Michelle Rose’s performances?
I had no major issue with the performance. I was more into the story.
Any additional comments?
I could not get into this story. The heroine bugged me...had me rolling my eyes in disgust. It started out o.k. and I had high hopes it would get better.
But I had to stop with 3 hours remaining. I will not be getting the other 2 books in the series.
