Claimed (Brides of the Kindred, #1) - Evangeline Anderson Just a quick note to warn fellow readers that, notwithstanding the positive reviews, it would be better not to expect too much from this book. You should know going in that the heroine is 'out-of-this-world' annoying for most of the story. And the tension/conflict for eighty percent of the book centers around the heroine's not wanting to have to infrequently visit her sister or give up her soon to be starting job...two ridiculously simple issues which are later resolved with some common sense and one sentence each. Very frustrating. Then there's the obligatory TSTL action. Meanwhile, for each immature and ungrateful whine from the heroine, the Hero is described as more beautiful, sexy, caring and considerate. It got to the point where I was rooting for spinsterhood with cats for the two sisters and a new, hot, appreciative woman for the Hero. Having said all that, the erotica portion of this book is once again excellent (although it mostly takes place in threats, fantasies and dreams). Anderson is totally talented when it comes to crazy hot dialogue. There is decent world building (which I hope the author puts to better use in the clearly upcoming series). And then there's the low price.
