Kindred Kraze with Evangeline Anderson Day One!

For the next eight days the Book Whores will be taking you through an adventure into space as we start at the beginning of Author Evangeline Anderson's Brides of the Kindred series! We hope you will join us each day as we tell you about each book and what we loved about them!

Olivia Waterhouse has just graduated from nursing school and has her whole life ahead of her—until she gets drafted. Problem is, she isn't being forced into the Army, she’s been chosen as a Kindred bride.

The Kindred are huge alien warriors—a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male. After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward—the right to find brides among the population. The chances of being chosen are about the same as those of winning the lottery—guess it’s just Liv’s lucky day.

Baird is a Beast Kindred who recently escaped imprisonment and torture at the hands of the malevolent Scourge. Through the torment and pain only one thing kept him sane—the thought of finding and claiming his bride—Olivia. His need to possess her is a burning intensity that threatens to consume them both.

Angry at having her future and her family taken away from her, Liv vows to fight back the only way she can—by resisting. She has one month on the Kindred Mothership with Baird—their claiming period. If she can keep from having bonding sex with him during that time, she can go home and get on with her life on Earth.

But Baird isn't going to make it easy for her. Every week he is allowed to touch Liv more and more intimately and according to the contract she signed, she has to let him. She’s determined to resist him but his touch sets her on fire. And just as she thinks she knows what she wants, a twist of fate and an attack by the faceless Scourge AllFather changes everything…

Here we go! Book one! Let's just say Holy Cow! Way to start off with a bang. They say that the first book in a series can either make or break you for the rest of them. Not only did she make it, but she is now on her own little pedestal in my little reader heart <3! Now I'm a little biased, cause you know, I've read some of her other books. Anyways, onto the show, story, thingy. Talk about a roller coaster of emotions! I can only imagine how Olivia feels having some giant alien say hey guess what, I dreamed about you, you're mine! I'm not exactly a fierce female, but I'd be putting the breaks on too. I loved how detailed she went into the claiming period and all the different parts of it, and *swoon*. I like myself a big growly guy who knows what he wants and Baird is exactly that. There is a lot of back and forth with her trying to decide what she wants, and then right when things start to settle we get to meet the Scourge!

Great start to the series, can't wait to keep going!
