Vulcan's Woman

Barbarian Lust 1

Vulcan's Woman is a science fiction erotic romance set on the planet Helixes. The planet is overrun with creatures’ of all types. The female lead, Wisteria, is part of a primitive clan that lives on the planet. Promised to a man she does not want she wonders off and is saved by barbarians. The barbarians are led by Vulcan. He is a US Special Forces leader and his group is investigating the planet. Sex and romance follows, but when he is called home what he will do?

Vulcan's Woman has some great elements. It has a strong alpha hero, a damsel in distress and an off planet experience. Overall I just never felt the connection between these elements. Questions popped into my mind like, why were US troops there? What was their mission? These questions didn't really get answered and I felt like not enough was given. Also, Vulcan and Wisteria were for me not very likable.

Would I recommend the book? I do to those who enjoy light science fiction. This is the start to a new series that might get better as it gets more developed and the characters fill out.
