Brides of the Kindred Book One—Claimed

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…

Brides of the Kindred
The Series

A race of Genetic Traders from beyond the stars
Three very different types of men
All looking for one thing…their brides

In all their years of travel the Kindred have come across only three worlds with
species close enough to their own to initiate a trade.
Earth is the fourth.

Beast Kindred—Savage in battle these dark, brooding warriors from Rageron bring their passion and intensity to the bedroom. They possess a very special endowment that ensures every sexual experience is a tantric one.

Blood Kindred—Cold as ice to their enemies, these tall, blond warriors from Tranq Prime warm up when they find the right woman. But be careful…they bite.

Twin Kindred—Muscular and rugged, these warriors from Twin Moons always come in pairs and cannot be separated. They experience physical pain when parted from each other…or the one woman they both choose to love.

And then there is the enemy…

The Scourge—A genetic trade gone wrong, these menacing outsiders have twisted desires and sexual needs fierce enough to frighten away even the most adventurous. Their need to dominate and possess their women completely has led to a strange prophesy that they must fulfill…or die trying.

    The major plus of this book is that it's free. I thought it would be funny and/or sartorial given its context, but unfortunately not. I was hoping the women would win. You can't help but agree the whole thing is unfair. It would have been great if she did hold out the 30 days & made her own demands. But no, it's a lot of him saying how he's going to f her blah blah blah, then her being "overcome" by her hormones. None of it was heart racing. But, hey, it's free. If you don't like it, you can just quit it with no real harm except time.

  • The book that started it all!

    By Vanesslachelle
    This book, for me, got me hooked to everything Evangeline Anderson ! I decided to come back and write a review for this one. I loved this story so much I've read pretty much the entire series plus all her other series. I got into them late and I think 14 were out already but better late than never!
  • Great story!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a great story behind all the steamy scenes and great sex 😜 The whole "Alien" genre is always interesting. Especially when they're great lovers 😘
  • Olivia's Dilemma

    By TrueLoveFan
    So I created this account so that I could discuss this book with like minded fans of the series and I was greatly disappointed to find that most of the individuals on this site have given this book such negative reviews. Did I think that the book was perfect? No, but then what book is? Seriously, there is never going to be a book that everyone loves in its entirety. Yes, Olivia as a main character can be stubborn and pigheaded, but that's just a personification of her sheer human nature. Every person is flawed and so every character must be flawed as well. If Olivia were perfect, people would be complaining that she was a mary-sue. All in all, I found this book very enjoyable and would highly recommend it to any readers that like Human/Alien romances or writer-created universes.
  • Awesome book

    This book is awesome! I couldn't put it down because it was so different from other books! This book had action and romance, and held my attention to the very last page... highly recommend!!!
  • Just read it already!

    An amazing read!
  • I liked it, but....

    By Steffadee
    Overall I really enjoyed it. Love the plot and the characters are pretty good though she kinda got annoying for a while there. So here's what I didn't like: The intimate scenes were way too descriptive and crude for me. But that's a personal preference. They spent way too much time on the first two weeks. It was the same thing basically over and over. And then all the sudden everything speeds up and the last maybe quarter of the book is just rushed. There's are things said and done throughout that make it so obvious what's about to come next. Especially at the end. There really is no element of surprise which is nice. There no plot twist for me. I pretty much guessed exactly what would happen next every time one might have popped up. But like I said overall I liked it. I don't usually like to continue with series where the main characters change every book. I'd rather stick to the same characters and see them evolve, but I may check out the next one just because I like Sylvan. Though I can already guess most of what will happen in that book!
