As the first story in the Life in the Vrail series by Marie Harte, LURIN’S SURRENDER is a red hot read that delivers on the sci fi as much as it sizzles. As a fan of Harte’s Contemporaries, I want to go ahead and try her other books. She has a huge backlist collection in various genres but since I needed a Sci Fi book for a challenge I’m doing on our Goodreads group, I picked this one.
LURIN’S SURRENDER is a novella that packs quite the punch. Not only is it a really hot red, but it also has a lot of tremendous worldbuilding. Although this is the first in the series, I’ll admit I was a tiny bit lost in the very beginning. It’s definitely heavy on the Sci Fi even though there is a good amount of Romance in it so that required some adjusting. However, once I was in the midst of things, it was much easier to get into. I really liked the heroine, Mara, but I do feel like Lurin took a little longer to warm up to. I think it’s because Mara shields herself so much that Lurin really need to work to break down those defenses. But since I love a strong heroine, I really liked Mara’s personality.
Short and sexy, this novella is a great read if you need a pick-me-up or if you want to dip your toes in some Sci Fi Erotica.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
