A desperate woman.
An alien warrior whose craving knows no bounds.
A passion that will change the fate of humanity.
In a world where humanity has been hunted to near extinction, Rose is captured and on her way to be sold on the lucrative black market. Seizing her only chance, she escapes and finds fate waiting for her in the form of another captive of terrifying strength: a legendary Eok warrior.
Together, Rose and the Eok warrior Karian fight for their survival - and ultimately for the fate of the entire human race. During that fight, a dangerous attraction is born.
Karian, the unyielding Commander in Chief of the Eok armies, feels his control fading a little more every time he looks at the fragile but headstrong human. Soon, the call to make her his mate torments his body, turning his desires into an imperious craving. She seems to want him, too, but she has no idea of the consequences for her should he claim her.
Will Rose accept him as her bloodmate and seal both their destinies, before everything is lost?
Venomous Craving by Mary Auclair is a stand alone read that would definitely make an awesome book one for a series.
Let me state for the record that I have never been a big fan of “Alien” romance, but Mary Auclair has me rethinking my position.
I loved this book!
The storyline was well thought out and executed, giving this storyline an epic sage type of feel. The main characters, Karian and Rose are well developed and wonderfully flawed. The story was so well written that I felt like I was standing in the room watching the story unfold and riding the emotional rollercoaster right along with our heroes!
There is romance, action, adventure, drama, comedy and support characters that I want to see more of and indeed, they clamor to have their stories told.
From the first page to the last, I was so invested in this book that I could not and did not put it down.
I highly recommend this read for anyone who likes strong characters, a Star Wars flavored read or is just looking for their next escape into a different landscape. This book should come with the warning: "Highly Addictive and Prone To Make A Reader Want More"
