Character development: 😳😬🤬😚
The heroine: Lyndsey Walters – A single mother who recently was in a car accident with her young son. He was badly injured and is in need of surgery to help him. She is a journalist and is tasked by a VIP mother whose son was killed to find out what is happening on The Colony, the prison planet where the Earth forces had been sent.
The Hero: Kiel – a Hunter on The Colony, he was previously held and tortured by “The Hive” and since has been abandoned on The Colony. He is a Hunter and works for the Governor of the planet to search out traitors and members of “The Hive” who try to infiltrate The Colony.
The Story: Lyndsey arrives on The Colony. She is supposed to hide in the air shafts and observe and report on what she finds. However, her arrival is caught on camera by the Governor and Kiel and Kiel is tasked with hunting her (though at the time they think she is a he).
It turns out Lyndsey and Kiel are fated mates and Kiel knows it from the start as shared erotic dreams are a sign of fated mates and the two of them share dreams from the time Lyndsey gets close to The Colony. When she arrives and is found by the men of the planet Kiel must fight to claim her as his.
I got annoyed at parts of the story. It seemed like things were often explained to death and beyond. From the very beginning where Lyndsey described her being on a spaceship, a stowaway hiding in a container. She detailed her reasons why and how she doesn’t care about anything but getting an operation for her son in about every way she could possibly say it. I even said out loud “Ok Already, I get it!
The book was told in dual Points of View with two narrators that were new to me but very good. Melissa Swairey had a soft but clear voice which matched Lyndsey as the human journalist. Rich Miller had an extremely deep voice that was perfect for the tall muscular warrior that was Kiel. I enjoyed the narration and the story was good despite the earlier problems I had with it.
