**New Release & Review** The Bare Essentials by Honey Phillips

Can Janet survive the heat of an alien desert? And the heat of the alien warrior who finds her?

One minute Janet is sliding into a snow bank. The next she is alone in the middle of a strange pink desert. Alone and naked.

When a huge, golden-scaled male appears out of the shifting sands, she is convinced that he is a mirage. But the fiery pleasure of his touch feels too real to be an illusion.

Sabrost is preparing for his final initiation as a priest of Tetlana when he is snatched away from his temple. The desert in which he awakens reminds him of his ancestral sands. But his ancestors would never have accepted the delicate female who arouses all of his protective instincts.

The desert holds many secrets – not the least of which are the secrets of the heart. Which will prove most treacherous as Janet and Sabrost make the perilous trek to safety?

Each book in the Exposed to the Elements series can be read as a standalone romance. This sweet and steamy romance is intended for mature audiences only.

What we have here is basically Naked & Afraid in the desert on an alien planet! Sabrost and Janet wake up on an alien planet sans any clothing and very few resources. Sabrost was a monk before arriving. That kind of gave this story a taboo nature. I fell in love with Sabrost. He’s described as a mythic warrior with a big body, golden scales, strange black eyes, hissing breath, and the epitome of male perfection. YOU HAVE MY ATTENTION. Sabrost takes very good care of Janet. She’s definitely out of her element in the pink sands of this desert. This story was steamy and fun with a bit of mystery on the side. More books are planned and there will be more revealed about the scientists who are bringing each couple to this planet. Next up is a sea adventure! The Bare Essentials was humorous and spicy adventure. You’ll fall in love with Sabrost, too! 4 stars

Honey wrote and illustrated her first book at the tender age of 5. Her writing has improved since then. Her drawing skills, unfortunately, have not. She loves writing, reading, traveling, cooking, and drinking champagne – not necessarily in that order.

Her steamy science fiction stories focus on hot alien warriors and the Earth women they can’t resist. From abductions to invasions, the ride might be rough, but the end always satisfies.
