They call him the Bane. She calls him her hero.
Maude never considered herself weak-minded, not until she woke up hearing a voice inside her head. Now she’s dealing with alien captors, a bio-mechanical organism infecting her body, and two brutal suns frying her skin. Oh, and time is not on her side. Her sole ally is a towering Teras alien who steals her breath with his brilliant smiles and heated gazes. She desperately needs to get home, yet her savior is stealing her heart.
Therion Borac is many things. His mother’s darling. His father’s hellion. His house’s bane. Never an honorable man. When his house calls upon him to rescue an abducted human woman, he’ll eagerly save the lady but won’t hope for anything more. With crime lords and powerful Teras organizations threatening Maude, he knows she’ll need a scoundrel at her back more than she’ll need an honorable man at her side. For Maude, he will gladly remain the Bane.
Bane is a science fiction romance with action elements, crude (oh, so crude) humor, tender moments, and steamy close encounters. Contains explicit themes and is intended for adults only. No cheating. No cliffhangers. Characters battle for their hard-won HEA. Enjoy!
REVIEW BY NANCY
Brilliant!! Bex McLynn has crafted a world with the intrigue of the days of knights & ladies and mashed it up with a futuristic alien romance! Bane is a multi-faceted masterpiece. Therion is of House Borac. He’s a younger brother to the Thane. He’s Irreverent and a ne’er-do-well of many talents. Then enters Maude who awakens on a desert planet with a “spider” of alien tech attached to her. (You’ll come to love Kora, the spider.) Coveted human and a technopath, of which she is unaware, Maude is being held prisoner as her captor prepares to auction her. Therion, caught and sold as a slave, arrives to rescue Maude. It’s a favor to Seph from book 1. Therion is hilarious always talking about scheduling a riot with the guards and captives. The Bane doesn’t expect to grow attached to sweet Maude, but as the story unfolds that’s what happens. As a human, Maude is an opposite to our other human, Seph, who has an actively aggressive persona. Bane has many layers. Some of my favorite parts were the tactical maneuvers of escape and destruction. This book is so much more than a love story! It’s witty, intelligent, super steamy, and all about family. Well worth the wait! 5 stars
**I recommend reading Thanemonger, The Ladyships Book 1, first!
