HAVEN 4: AVOW
BY SANDRA R. NEELEY
General Lo’San is second in command on Command Warship 1. Refusing the matriarchal ways of his home planet, he broke all ties and left for Cruestace in the hopes of joining their military and building a better life for himself. He’s kept his singular focus pinpoint sharp. One’s integrity, one’s honor, one’s duty is all that matters. Warriors aboard his warship have found and claimed their females. He however, has no interest in such emotional matters of the heart… they dim one’s focus. Then a human female with eyes of blue and sparkling, silver highlights in her hair catches his eye. She’s reserved, beautiful and smart. He made it clear he’d be receptive to her advances, and now he waits. Unable to understand why the hell she won’t claim him!
Synclare was one of multiple females rescued from a slaver’s ship by the Cruestaci people. Those not claimed by their mates were anxious to get back to Earth. But not Synclare. She had nothing to go back to. Raised a trust-fund baby, she’s never had people that cared for her instead of her wealth. Even her own family were more interested in her money and what it could do for them, than in Synclare. As she waits with her friends for their transport back home to Earth, she notices a strong, stoic, beautiful male. His white hair, silver skin and gray eyes captivate her. He’s quiet and serious, commanding and sure, but makes every effort to let her know he sees her, and he’s interested. She begins to believe that he may be her future, and she lets him know she’s interested. Yet no matter how often she puts herself in his path, he just won’t claim her!
Among General Lo’San’s customs and people, it is the place of the female to claim and mate her male. He cannot imagine doing it any other way. Synclare’s customs indicate that the male should claim and mate his female, and she won’t do it differently. It is not her place to tell an Alien General that he is hers — it’s all on him to take that stance. While they try to find their way through their confusing clash of customs, a manipulative danger lingers on the horizon disguised as family. This danger could cost Synclare her life if they aren’t careful. Will Lo’San recognize the danger to his beloved Synclare before it can steal her away from him, or will he continue to fall under the plan of deception that’s been woven for him?
I have so much to say about this book! I absolutely loved Lo’San. I’ve affectionately abbreviated his name to Lo. Synclare is the female that is his and she is a bit stubborn, but I completely understand why. I beta read this book for Sandra and I have some fun thoughts from my notes! I have to say that I love all of the males in this series. They are a serious hoot! In chapter 4 – The purring. I want a male that purrs! This chapter is all tease! Can I build a shrine to chapter 5?? Holy hotness! This chapter deserves a reread right now. (Which I did!) “We may never leave this room,” INDEED!
One thing you won’t fall in love with is Lo’s family. Especially his mother and his brother’s wife. I have many unkind words for them. At one point I think I was wailing and knashing my teeth at the plot. Good stuff!! And these males are total DRAMA queens. The posturing and yelling that goes on between them is utterly comical. These big men can dish it as well as any girl squad which is really a scream. And Rokai is such a rogue in this one. I would give this book 10 stars if I could! 5 FABULOUS stars!!
About Sandra R Neeley
My name is Sandra R Neeley. I write Paranormal, Fantasy and SciFi Romances. Why? Because normal is highly overrated. I’m 56, I have two kids, one 34 and one 14, one grandchild, one husband, and a menagerie of animals. I am a homebody and prefer my writing /reading time to a crowd. I’ve had stories and fictional characters wandering around in my head for as long as I can remember. I started letting them out into the real world and surprisingly, people have loved them. I am a Self-Published Author, and I like it that way because I can decide what and when to write. I am by no means a formal, polished, properly structured individual and neither are my stories, but people seem to love the easy emotion and passion that naturally flow from them. A bit of a warning though, there are some “triggers” in them that certain people should avoid, so please read the synopsis supplied with each book before buying.
