**** 4 Out Of 5 Stars
CLAIMED BY THE WARRIOR by Savannah Stuart
“Basically you think I’m a beautiful, delicate creature with no common sense and I can’t think my way out of a paper bag.” “Well this silly human female helped design a good portion of your new refuge’s lodging defense—-with my irrational human mind!”
This is a sci-fi fantasy romance that can be read in one setting. It is a short story, but has a lot packed in a small space. Aliens with elongated tongues, double mates, blue planets, humans – everything for another great read by Savannah Stuart.
Lumineta is a planet where many humans relocated with the earth’s demise. A planet short on women. It is more the norm to have two males for one female. Leilana, a transplant to Lumineta from earth, is sent to the mountain region to deliver completed plans of a project she has been working on and finds herself held against her will. In this region, an unmated female can be forced to live there one moon cycle. She is livid that she must stay, but finds that maybe this courting is not too bad especially when it involves a sexy alpha leader.
Con, the leader of his clan, has never thought much about taking a mate – especially a human. They are nothing but trouble. But he is about to buck the system by wanting Leilana for himself. He is not willing to share. And once Leilana gets to know this strong alpha male, he has her rethinking everything she knew about Lumineta males.
I loved the story. It is a fast paced fun, sexy read.
