Two years of unimaginable abuse have left Chandar emotionally damaged. In a final act of treachery, her captor wiped her memory clean in an effort to conceal his evil. Now she’s free and working to rebuild her life, but what use is a harbinger who can no longer see the future?

Raylon, the rebellion’s fiercest warrior, has known nothing but hardship and pain. Rescuing Chandar awakened feelings he thought long dead within his soul, yet she sees him as her champion, a protector to drive back her fear. He, on the other hand, is tormented by inappropriate thoughts and desires that would horrify her. He has never wanted a female as much as he wants Chandar, but he knows it’s impossible. She’s much too fragile, too vulnerable, to see him as anything but her defender.

For Kindle Unlimited Readers or Things that Make Me Say, Huh?

Here are a few new releases that leave me scratching my head. Not because of the topics necessarily, but because of the length or the way they are packaged. Okay maybe this first one is partly because the hero (?) is a Dinosaur named Dave. But it is also only 16 pages long.  I think you’d have to be a KU reader and getting this free. But, maybe not. I’m embarrassed to admit that I’m actually tempted to give this author my .99 out of pure curiosity. What do you think? Is a 16 page story worth a purchase? or does it have to be free to get your attention?  Any KU readers out there?

Alien Tentacle Chronicles – Taken in the City  by Amber Burns 

tentacleAvailable on KindleUnlimited

Print Length: 51 pages
Publication Date: January 14, 2016

He’s half alien and has the long and massive tentacles to prove it!


And then there are the “books” that have titles that seem stuffed with key words. Many are collections of shorts and many include unnamed  bonus stories. The whole presentation makes me nervous. Are these sellers more concerned with getting borrows than about actually entertaining the reader? Maybe I’m being a skeptic. Maybe these sellers are just trying to help people find the stories that will match their interests. Has anyone given these a read? Is there anything in them worth checking out?
