This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Sarah Michaels is running for her life.
Abducted into a cult called The Brotherhood of Peace at age twelve, she has grown up in an abusive system. Now as an adult, she is desperate to get away before she must become a “Bride of the Prophet” and is forced to have sex with the leader, the lecherous Father Caleb. Sarah runs from the cult…and straight into the arms of a tall, dark, angry Kindred warrior.
Commander Sazar is the ultimate diplomat but not a very good boss. In fact, he’s awful because he has the habit of biting his personal assistants. As a Pitch-Blood Kindred, he needs blood on a regular basis and since his beautiful wife is dead, he is forced to take it from the female who is closest to him. Five secretaries have quit because of his blood requirements and he’s desperate to find a new one before he goes on his latest diplomatic mission to Alquon Ultrea. Desperate enough to take on a girl with very little experience and no resume to speak of because she’s willing to let him bite her and drink her blood.
Desperation might have brought them together but Sazar and Sarah soon find they have much in common. It’s Christmas time and a deep mutual attraction draws them together. But when a misunderstanding tears them apart and Sarah is taken by the Brotherhood of Peace, can Sazar save her? And can Sarah help him by Healing the Brokenness inside?
Healing two broken hearts
Got to love to see another book in the Kindred Brides. Some things I love about this book is it is a Christmas story, it is about a single father (absolutely love that), and it is not just about one broken soul but two broken souls that need healing. I love that is is also about a woman that has been through hell and back and still is not broken. She has a strong spirit and is a survivor.
I love that the author is writing about beautiful curvy women and that is what Sarah Michaels is. She has been through so much. She was in a cult called The Brotherhood of Peace. She did not have a mother she could rely on to keep her safe and her father abandon her.
I loved how Sarah used her brain when it came to her escape and finding refuge. She knew she had to hide away and what better way to do that then getting a job with one of the Kindreds.
Holy moly Commander Sazar was this sexy Pitch-Blood Kindred. I love how Evangeline Anderson brings something new to each of her books. I know you are probably thinking she has already written a book on a blood kindred what new did she bring. Well a Pitch-Blood Kindred is different then the other blood kindred. They actually need to drink blood.
I tried to picture what is was like for each person that interviewed to be Commander Sazar’s assistant. To go in and find out he wants to feed off you once a week and it would hurt. How would you react? Would you give it your best to try to make it work to live out your fantasy of being bitten by a vampire?
My heart broke for Sazar. He was broken. To me there could be nothing worse then loosing your spouse. He had bottled up all his pain and emotions. Withdrawn from those close to him. I believe he buried himself in his work to help him deal with the pain. But the bad thing about this is he let his pain keep him from his 4 year old son. His son was grieving as well. He had lost his mother through death but father as well. Yes Sazar was still alive but not there emotionally for his son. His son needed his father, he need the comfort of family and home, and what he needed most was feeling loved. So when I said that there were two broken souls I was referring to Sazar and his son Tsandor. To me both were broken.
I found the planet Alquon Ultrea interesting. The author is always so creative when it comes to the other planets and the people on it. Now the men in leadership on this planet I did not like. I am not saying all men on this planet were bad because I do not believe that but I do believe that Councilor Rando and Lord Magnate were scum.
I found it interesting that on this planet people that lived underwater. I also found how freely sexual the planet was very interesting as well. Their moral codes were total different from earth that is for sure. There are somethings that happen on this planet that Sazar will have a hard time forgiving himself from.
As you know there is danger around the corner and Sazar will have to face how much he loves Sarah. How much he wants to protect her and keep her safe. And face the fact that he must let go of the past and embrace the future. I love how the Sazar found out about Sarah being in danger and how Sazar was able to believe what he was being told.
Trust me when I say there are plenty of steamy parts in this book. As you know Evangeline Anderson never disappoints. This was a great story. I truly loved that this was a single dad story. I truly hope that the author will consider writing more single dad stories. This book can be read as a standalone so please do not worry if you have not read any of the other book in the Kindred Bride series. I am truly glad I got to read the book. Hea
Excellent Christmas Read !!
