Review: Colonist's Wife by Kylie Scott

4 Stars

It’s 2088, and having testified in a gangland murder trial, nowhere on Earth is safe for Louise. Witness Protection has organized a new identity and a marriage contract for her on the mining colony of Esther, one of the moons circling Jupiter. The man who meets her there is not the groom she expected.
Adam Elliot is neither sweet nor sincere, and he looks like he was hosed off a barroom floor. But soon a memorial service reveals Adam’s soft underbelly. Throw some stellar sex into the mix and the two decide that maybe marriage to each other might not be so bad after all.
But an assassin is already at work. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues on the planet’s frozen surface. Louise is determined to live long enough to draw the maniac away from the husband she just might have fallen for.

A Romantica® science fiction erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave


 This book was given to me by the author for an honest review

My Thoughts; I fell in love with Kylie's writing when I read her Zombie apocalypse novels Flesh and Skin, so when she asked me to review this book it was a no-brainer. It took me a few pages to really get into it because the story is set in the future so introducing a new world/planet is always tricky. Once I got my barrings I was on my way...

Louise is running scared and it lands her not only in a new home but also with a new husband that isn't at all who she was expecting. Adam is, in a way, also running. Only the thing he is running from are the nightmares that haunt him. The two come together it a very heart touching way. Louise sees the heartbreak behind his eyes and she wants to protect him from that. Adam also sees that Louise is hiding even when she is right in front of him. As one seeks to protect the other all hell breaks loose and you can't help but GASP.....

This book was a very quick read. It may not be my favorite of Kylie's books I have read *coughSKINcough*, but after the initial introduction it was very good. I would definitely recommend it.
