Brides of the Kindred, #10

This series is highly complicated and you must read the previous books to have even a clue as to who everyone is and what is going on. The stories all interconnect and are dependent on one another for details vital to the story being told. This picks up where Kindred Brides Chained ends, and the spurned suitor of that story is wreaking havoc. All three main characters have landmines of emotion in their respective pasts and it takes an intergalactic matchmaker to help lead the way to these wounded soul's salvation. Truth is the most resistant of the trio, having been raised on a planet that finds threesomes abhorrent as well as punishable by death. Far was raised among the Kindred but always felt left out as his twin, his other half, was missing. Becca chose a life of celibacy as punishment for a believed sin that resulted in a loved one’s demise. A lot to work through without the added pressure of saving all Kindred kind.

Truth’s constant self-flagellation got to be a bit tiresome, as did Becca’s self-recrimination for her desires for two men. Far was the most stable of the trio, but he too had issues to deal with. The sex the trio had to participate in was a long time coming and quite detailed when it did. But there was a lot of angst, anger, and uncertainty to wade through to get there. I like this series and will be looking forward to the next installment.

A nun who came very close to breaking her vows when she accidentally ingested a large amount of bonding fruit, Becca is torn between the Twin Kindred who helped her get through the overwhelming sexual need the bonding fruit induced. But Truth and Far aren't like their Twin Kindred counterparts; they were separated at birth and have just found one another. They don’t get along, at all, and this puts Becca in the unenviable position of feeling she has to choose between them. But as disaster strikes on the Kindred Mother Ship, it’s up to Becca and her twin suitors to form a proper bond and save the Kindred race. But first Truth and Far have to bond as Twin Kindred, and that looks like an impossible task. Will Becca be strong enough to be the bridge that saves a race?

Book Blurb for Divided

One girl who was supposed to be a nun

Two hot twin warriors separated at birth

Both of them want her

But neither one can have her alone.

Because with Twin Kindred, it takes two...

How does a girl who's about to take her vows as a nun wind up with two hot warriors to pick from?

That's Becca Malone's problem. After eating a piece of bonding fruit cake, she wound up with Far and Truth, Twin Kindred warriors who were separated at birth and never formed a proper Twin bond. Because the twins hate each other, Becca feels free to choose between them...until the three of them fall into a vision of unspeakable terror...a vision that is about to come true if Far and Truth don't quickly form a bond. And guess who has to be the bridge between them?

Becca is scared to death she's going to wind up bonded for life and Far and Truth aren't too thrilled about the prospect of sharing her. But when the ominous vision sends them on a trip to a rogue planet where the inhabitants live out their lives in a strange, mental internet called the Mindscape, they have no choice but to come together in the most intimate way possible.

Becca comes to realize she can't choose between the light twin, sweet and gentle Far and the dark twin, intense and passionate Truth. But how can she be with both of them at once when the twins have sworn to be forever...Divided?
