GateKeepers, #2

Love knows no boundaries be it space or time; it is limitless. This message is aptly conveyed to the readers of Kalindra: GateKeeper Book Two. This book is a firecracker of sensuality, paranormal erotica and action written by talented author Sondrae Bennett.

Ms. Bennett's love for red hot paranormal eroticism, woven with plenty of butt kicking combats, is apparent in this well written novel. Ms. Bennett captured my attention from the first page to the last sentence. The exquisite sensations created are as delectable as the most decadent, elegant meal full of all things that caress your palate and your other senses with each sinfully delicious bite. Ms. Bennett spares no expense bringing her readers on the front line and creates a bond between the characters, locations, and activities implementing the elements of a story so well. You will feel the range of emotions including sadness and happiness. Readers will feel the heart throbbing action in and out of bed. This is a hot one with the perfect length to maintain the quest for curiosity and satisfaction.

Harpy Kalindra is a gatekeeper, a powerhouse of sensuality, strength and savvy. She has been a warrior woman in this position of gate keeper for centuries. Her reputation precedes her. Her gateway has been desired by competitors. However, her skillfulness for killing those who dare cross her keeps them at bay. Kalindra is feared by most and I have to admit she is my kind of woman...carrying an attitude: “I wish you would!” She wears the sexiness of human form when she is not battling. Kalindra wears a womanly human form graced with curves, roundness and beauty in such a way it ignites the fire of irresistibility.

Analise, her best friend, a siren possesses the gift of magnetism with a physique to match. No male can repel. Ana is a minor character and colorful to say the least.

Kalindra's starring man, Cameron, is an entrepreneur with a plan of deception and has a great distain for vampires and harpies. Kalindra's strong sense of duty for protecting the gateway warrants his respect while guarding his secret. His muscular body, intelligence and guarded secret are things that pique the curiosities Kalindra harbors. Cameron has many answers that she is seeking and he's not willing to give them up easily. Therefore, Kalindra keeps him around for entertainment purposes although he is her prisoner.

The story develops nicely and stirs up the inferno of passion and friendship between these two unlikely individuals. I enjoyed the manner in which Ms. Bennett shapes and molds her story and her characters. I could not release the book. Harpies and vampires as characters are not normally a draw for me, but I treasured my hours together in the world of Kalindra and Cameron. I found this narrative heartwarming and adventurous. I am confident other readers will appreciate savoring the connectivity between Cameron and Kalindra and the emotions that encompassed them. Ms. Bennett's world of adventure between the worlds and her characters stayed with me long after the last sentence and manufactured a hunger for the next installment.

Ms. Bennett builds a book with a marathon of sizzle, crackle and pop. If you don't mind sharing a piece of your imagination and sensitivity you should allow Ms. Bennett to envelope you with her lyrical writing style wrapped with luscious carnality. Ms. Bennett will increase your desire perhaps causing you to look for your special someone to curl up with for a hot, sweet taste of eroticism.

As I await the next GateKeeper featuring my new favorite heroine, Kalindra, I will entertain myself with other paranormal works penned by this gifted warrior of a writer.

Book Blurb for Kalindra

What happens when a warrior woman meets her match?

Harpy Kalindra stumbles upon three human corpses who've mysteriously crossed from Earth into Outremer through the portal she guards. A human prisoner with two traveling vampires seems her only clue. She captures the man, and brings him back to her lair to discover the truth-not only why he came to Outremer, but how he got past the defenses of the gate. She expects answers. What she doesn't expect is the intense attraction she feels for him...attraction he seems to share.

Cameron has a secret. For years, he's used a shard of the gateway to cross worlds without detection-for his own gain. When the gatekeeper saves him from the clutches of vampires who want the shard, he learns she's not just another monster from Outremer. He can't resist his attraction to her human form, and before long he's feeling more than simple lust for her.

Kalindra's gateway comes under constant attack from creatures who want what Cameron has. The assaults are his fault, but he can't hand over the shard, which is a family legacy. He must convince Kalindra he can help defend the gate...but how?
