When natural disaster strikes Joyal, Madeline is tossed from her planet into the hands of the Kireg. Madeline has always feared the Kireg, an alien who can bend—or snap—a mind with only a thought. What she found on their home planet is even more frightening. Civil unrest has exploded and enemies are everywhere. But the one thing she never expected to find was her mate, the rebellion leader who started the war.
Moon Mark was nothing and everything I expected from Scarlett Dawn. With what I’ve come to consider her signature mix of sexy and humor, Scarlett Dawn takes us on a wild ride with Geo and Madeline. You guys, this one had me blushing like crazy! It’s a little dark, kind of twisted – my eyebrows shot up and my jaw dropped at least once. I read one portion aloud to my husband giggling like a child because man, oh man, was it sexy.
Scarlett Dawn excels at creating badass bitches and hot as heck alpha males and she does not let us down here. Seriously, you thought that the Mian’s were a little possessive of Briata? Yeah… Geo takes it to a whole new level. Yet, he did not once come off as stalkerish and creepy to me in the way that these super testosterone filled characters have potential to do. Madeline is a good, strong character. She worked through her fears, (reluctantly) kept an open mind to new things, and she stood up for herself and for others. She protected those she could.
My only complaint is that we didn’t get to see enough of these two together. I’m not talking about sexy-times because there was plenty of that for sure, but if felt like it lacked a little emotional connection. Yes, this story took place in the midst of civil war and a lot happened in the course of the short novella, but I wished we had gotten to see the characters having a little bit of fun together – actually getting to know one another. A little bit more flirting and emotional foreplay would have gone a long way with me.
Despite that, this is a solid four stars and great quick read if you’re looking something with a bit of action, some steamy romance, and a few laughs. If you enjoyed getting to know the Mians in Cold Mark, you’ll enjoy a glimpse into the world of the Kireg in Moon Mark!!
