Series: Tornians #1
Lisa Miller is visiting her husband’s grave when she is kidnapped by aliens. The aliens expect her to comply and be willing to join with one of their males when they reach Tornian. She isn’t unattached though, she has two little girls at home that she refuses to leave. She makes a deal with the fearsome warrior in charge to go back for them. King Grim never expected to have a female after he became scared, but now he has a female and children who are gifts from the Goddess, and he will do everything he can to keep them.
I have read this book so many times at this point that you would think I would be bored by now but I love it more each time (I have read it every year since 2015). This book is one of my go-to book to read when I am in a reading slump, feeling depressed, or just can’t figure out what to read. Something about Grim and Lisa’s story just makes everything feel better. I know a lot of people have issues with the editing and some of the story plots but I don’t notice them because I am so entranced by the story, even after all this time.
Lisa and Grim’s story is one filled with cultural differences, love, and danger. I loved everything about this world and characters. I love how caring and protective Grim is of Lisa and their daughters. Having this huge scared warrior who knows nothing about children being attentive and caring for the children is adorable. Lisa is a strong, caring, and protective woman. She is truthful and honest with everyone and really knows how to make people feel better about themselves and the situation.
Overall, I love this book as much as I did the first time and I know I will read it again in the future.
