I absolutely adored Kor and could have single-handedly strangled Maggie. Why? Her dedication to her fiancé Donald who was, in my opinion, a waste of skin was nauseating. Probably because he was all brain and thought that exempted him from proper manners. Kor, while his past and well-earned reputation were deplorable, bloomed in Maggie’s light. His devotion and dedication were awe-inspiring and panty-wetting. But all Maggie could do was whine about betraying Donald. Gah! Kor is a long-term investment between a witch and a demon, introduced in the previous story. These two conspirators try at every turn to separate Maggie and Kor and almost succeed a time or two, but true love is stronger than any evil. A great continuation of the Kindred story line.
It seems Maggie’s mere presence induces disaster. Accident prone is one way to describe her. When she starts having dreams of a man bound by a stream, imagine her shock when she finds him just as she dreamed while performing a task for the Kindred? Her morals induce her to set him free, unleashing a series of events that boggle the mind. Kor can barely remember when he wasn't a slave and his latest owner is a vicious bitch who is trying to force his submission. The only thing keeping him sane are his dreams of the lovely woman with the strange eye coverings. When she shows up in his own personal hell he determines he will protect her at all costs for her brave decision to set him free. As they try to complete her task assigned by the Kindred, they fall in love but there are those that would do anything to see them apart as it interferes with their nefarious plans. Can they overcome all obstacles to be together?
Maggie Jordan is not supposed to be having adventures. Her mission is to go to Gaia, a new, unpopulated world, and study the native life forms there. So how come she finds herself in on the female dominated Yonnie Six instead, rescuing a huge, muscular prisoner? The same prisoner she keeps seeing over and over again in her dreams…
Korexiroth—or Kor, as Maggie dubs him, is a slave who spent his life fighting in the savage arenas of the Blood Circuit. He’s got plenty of kills under his belt and more than enough reasons to run as soon as he gets free. But somehow he can’t make himself part from the girl who was brave enough to save him from certain death.
Now Maggie and Kor are on the run together, trying desperately to find someone to remove the alien device that was implanted in Maggie as punishment for her thievery of an expensive slave. The device, or “slut button” as it is called, forces Maggie to sexual excesses the shy scientist has never known before—and Kor is the only one who can help her control her new urges.
Kor is more than willing to help Maggie satisfy her new sexual hunger but his own appetites are not so easily satiated. For there is a dark secret, a shadow from his past that stalks him and whispers of power beyond belief if only he will give himself over to darkness.
Will they find a way to return Maggie to normal? Will Kor admit how he really feels for her? Or with the shadow from his past succeed is tearing them apart? You’ll have to read Chained, Brides of the Kindred 9, to find out.
