Book 9 follows the series really well and I have enjoyed it every bit as much as the previous 8. I look forward to listening/reading to the rest just as much!
Maggie, who lives too much by What if, and guilt, rescues Kor and this results in many adventures and romance
What I love about the series so far is the follow up on previous characters and they are well written with good character balance and enjoyable stories!

Reddix is a Touch Kindred with an inverted Touch sense - he can’t touch with his mind like others of his kind. Instead, he is doomed to endure their emotions like a physical invasion every time he’s around anyone. Desperation drives him to kidnap Nina - the girl of whom he has been dreaming. But he doesn’t take her out of love, but as a sacrifice to one who claims she can cure his affliction. Snatching Nina from her job, Reddix takes her on a journey to the stars that ends in disaster. Now, marooned on a strange planet, they will have to learn to work together in order to survive.

This series is fabulous! The way that the stories flow is really good and keeping previous characters involved seriously works for me, but it does mean the books need to be read in sequence in my opinion. This story revolves around Nina and Reddix, who is a touch kindred with a major problem. He kidnaps Nina at the behest of the swamp witch and this leads to all sorts of adventures for the pair.
A great read (listen) that is worth the effort of the writing.

Another fabulous book from Evangeline Anderson. This one tells the tale of a witch with the shifter gene who had been hurt in her past by men and asks result is leery of them. Having been kicked out of her previous home, she stumbles onto the property of fox shifter Reese Cooper, who attempts to help her.
Drama ensues, especially since Jo is unwilling to believe she has the gene and consequently tries to go her own way.
A good story line even if Jo irritated me but since I've never been in her shoes, not something I'm going to harp on.
Well worth the read (listen) and I look forward to more

I love this series and the way the stories flow. the characters are becoming really fabulous and have depth especially as most have spanned several of the stories already and its great to see where they're going.
Lissa and Sabre are the major characters with L and Draven following along in a side arc.
all the other girls from the previous books make an appearance too.
I really recommend reading all the previous books before this one but it can stand alone.
