This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Kat O’Connor is no pushover. She’s a no nonsense girl with a commonsense approach to life. But there’s nothing common about what’s happening to her lately…
First she was forced to have a kinky mind ménage with two of the hottest and most irritating men in the galaxy—Twin Kindred warriors, Deep and Lock—in order to locate her kidnapped friend. Then she couldn’t get their feelings out of her head. And now she’s on her way to their home planet, Twin Moons, to find a cure for the debilitating illness their unorthodox joining caused, when all she really wants to do is go home.
Locks Tight, the light twin of the two, is already in love with Kat. Her curvy plus-sized body is the epitome of beauty on his home planet and her sharp mind makes her doubly attractive. But though he fell for her the moment he saw her, Twin Kindred are unable to mate a woman alone. Lock knows nothing can happen between them without his brother…
Stabs Deep. The dark twin has a secret agony in his past—a tragedy he feels he and he alone is to blame for. He too, hungers for Kat, but he hides his fear of rejection behind an impenetrable wall of angry sarcasm. For if he lets anyone get too close, the unbearable pain he has already endured once may happen again.
Now Kat and her twin warriors are on a quest—but they’re all looking for different things. Kat wants to find a way to dissolve the half-formed bond between them so she can be alone in her own head again. Lock wants to convince both her and his brother to complete the bond which will keep them together forever. And Deep is trying to protect his heart and love Kat from afar…though it grows more and more difficult to deny the hunger he feels for her growing inside him.
Their travels will take them from the uncharted wilds of Twin Moons to the Deadworld of the Scourge home planet. Will Kat find a cure for having other people’s emotions crowding her mind? Will Lock convince his brother and the woman they both love that they’re all meant to be together forever? And will Deep ever unshield his heart long enough to let Kat in?
You’ll have to read Sought, the third book in the Brides of the Kindred series, to find out…
This is Kat O’Connor’s story and what a story it was. I was not entirely sure that I would enjoy this tale as much as the first two because I’ve never been big on stories about poly-amorous relationships (they just aren’t an interest of mine,) but this story changed my mind.
Kat O’Connor is a heroine that I identify with most of all because she has unease in regards to her body, without being whiny and overbearing about it. She is a reasonable young woman with a good head on her shoulders that doesn’t just want to jump in a relationship with Deep and Lock, Twin Kindred, without being certain that it is what all three of them want. I do not understand how any of my fellow reviewers can find fault with Kat wanting to feel secure in her romantic endeavors, especially when one considers her home life.
As far as the dual romantic interests, Stabs Deep & Locks Tight, there have never been a more different pair of Twin Kindred ever and yet they complement each other so well. Where Lock is sweet and tender with Kat, nearly always worrying over her and her feelings as well as comforting her when necessary. On the other hand, Deep is a contrary individual with all-consuming desire for his “little Kat.” When Deep and Kat bicker, Lock acts as their mediator. But as the trio grows closer, Deep begins to fear that it’ll all end badly due to his past and his fear causes many issues that resulted, for me, in a series of moments that made me cry.
The complex relationship between Stabs Deep, Locks Tight, and Kat was entirely all-consuming. The push and pull of their three-person relationship was so addictive that I read the entire novel in three days and when I reached the end, I mourned that fact. I want so much to read about this polyamorous relationship well past the completion of the novel because there is so much more that could be dealt with in the future. I will be re-reading the book many, many times in the future.
This series has taken over my life!
This is the third book the this amazing series. And it's been just as good as the other two. I love how we get to go back sometimes to the other characters and see how they're doing.
This story follows Kat, who I love and is a strong character, and the two Twin Kindred, Deep and Lock.
I won't go into too much of this story, you'll just have to find out for yourself. But this have you everything you could ask for in a book.
Times where you'd laugh, times where you'd cry, and times where you'd just want to strangle the characters. But in a good book way.
Kat is by far one of my favorites in this series. And now I will be buying the next book and continuing on with the story.
