Holy F****G S**T this book is thigh-clenchingly HAWT!!!  End of review.  LOL Yes, sorry for the cursing I just had to get that off my chest. WOW!  It’s sci-fi erotica, but even if you don’t read sci-fi and you want something hot you have got to get this book. *shivers*

Prince Devnar is captured on another planet while he was supposed to be on a rescue mission.  He was betrayed by one of his own and he is now being “trained” by a Breaker so he can become the queens pleasure toy.

Melania gets the job as his breaker.  Breakers are not supposed to get aroused, are not supposed to get attached.  But Melania’s conditioning is failing and her connection with Devnar is instant, and ohhhhh boy so hot!

In the middle of all that they have to find a way to help Devnar and his crew escape and defeat the Queen.

Melania is a bit broken herself, I loved seeing her vulnerable side.  Devnar seemed to be the perfect other half for her.  And once they bonded, their relationship became that much stronger.

Some of my favorite quotes:

“Because you aren’t mine.” Her breath came out in a soft sob. “Because you will belong to the empress, and I cannot have you. I’m so alone, and I cannot have you.” He froze above her, and to her shame, she felt tears welling in her eyes.

“You are mine to play with,” she whispered against his chest, her lips trailing over his skin. “I will give you pleasure like you never imagined. All I ask in return is your complete obedience. Let yourself go; let me make the decisions. The only thing I want you to do is feel.”

About Ann Mayburn

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead(though she will deny to her children that it ever happened).

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.

Thank you for the awesome review! I saw this a few months back but disregarded it. I am adding it to my TBR. 🙂


Do not apologize for the way you feel about a book – EVER! Your heartfelt emotion is what makes or breaks a review. Hell, it’s what caught my eye in the first place, well, second after that smokin’ cover, and I’m going to get this one. I like a good sci-fi! Thank you!

Woot! So glad you dug this, when I was writing it I had a feeling that it was going to be a love it or hate it book for a lot of people and I’m glad that Devnar and Melania found a home in your imaginaition.

I have no idea why photobucket said the cover is naughty, it really isn’t that bad, but if you want to see it and take a peek at chapter 1 you can do so here:
