Claimed (Brides of the Kindred, #1)

Claimed by Evangeline Anderson was like an amusement park ride, fun, whimsical, fast-paced, and it left me wanting more. The first in Evangeline’s Brides of the Kindred series, it sets up a futuristic world in which an alien race that protects Earth takes as their due the occasional Earth bride, willing or not…though after spending the contracted month on the Kindred spaceship, for some reason, most of the brides choose to stay. I’ll give you a hint, it’s not the pasta worms that taste like chocolate.

Take a peek at a few of my favorite lines and grab your copy of Claimed:

“Don’t you think it might be a good idea to wait a while? To take some time to recover?”
“Waited long enough,” was the rumbling reply. “Six months in that hell hole and the only thing keeping me alive and sane were the dreams I had of her. I won’t wait any longer—she’s mine, whether she knows it yet or not.”
“You’ll scare her,” his half-brother objected. “Human women are frightened enough of us as it is.”
“I won’t hurt her. Just need to take her—bond her.”–Kindle Locations 73-78.

It was easier to pretend that the Kindred didn’t exist, easier to forget that you personally might win the bed-an-alien lottery at any minute.–Kindle Locations 249-250.

“Who are you?” she demanded, pulling her thin lace robe tightly around her. “And what have you been doing in my head?”–Kindle Location 518.

“Rules?” she asked warily. “What rules?”
“You have to eat every meal at his table and sleep every night in his bed,” Kat said, reading rapidly. “The good news is, you don’t have to bathe with him until the second week.”–Kindle Locations 624-627.

Wonderful, now she was angry again—and after they had been getting along so well. He’d almost come to consider her a friend of sorts and now she was shouting at him. What was wrong with these Earth females?–Kindle Locations 1502-1503.


About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
