I just finished reading Precious Starlight by Angela Castle and I can’t begin to tell you how much fun I had reading this book. You see, fun is the first word that came to mind when I finished reading. This was a check your brain at the door, make a big tub of popcorn, sit back and enjoy the ride kind of book. And with all the seriousness that is real life, it was so wonderful to just lose myself in a book that made me smile the whole time I was reading. The story starts off with Daisy Putter being held prisoner after being abducted by aliens. Thankfully she is rescued by a team of red-skinned Demos soldiers from Galafrax. Galafrax – Ms. Castle earned my love already with just this one word. What an awesome name for a planet. With this beginning, I knew that I was in for a fun time. Then she added that on Galafrax (see, I dare you not to smile while you’re reading this name) every male Demos is born in sets of identical quads and they mate with only one woman. Great planet name, hot alpha quadruplets and one woman who gets these men all to herself – this is the perfect recipe for an entertaining read. The quads who rescue Daisy, Loz and his brothers Tos, Cir, and Bex, are utterly captivated with Daisy and find themselves quickly falling in love with her. Daisy returns those feelings and they embark on a torrid love affair. But no romance would be complete without a problem that keeps our lovers apart. This time it is a set of powerful, ruling quads who want Daisy for their own. It will take everything the brothers have to keep Daisy safe and make her theirs permanently. So what did I like about this book? Everything! First was the characters. Daisy was a terrific and believable character. She had the same normal insecurities that most of us had which made her sympathetic. I loved that she had no problem standing up to the men in the book whether they were her lovers or the villains. She had sass and attitude in the perfect combination with sweet and caring. As to the guys – well, with four to chose from, all the characteristics you want in a man were covered. You had strength, loving, caring, smart, dominant and more. I would be hard pressed to pick which one was my favorite so I am glad that Daisy didn’t have to choose. The sex scenes were sizzling and steamy and I appreciated the obvious care and time Ms. Castle put into writing them. With four lovers, it would have been so easy to just turn these scenes into a sex free-for-all, but instead the reader is treated to tender loving that easily demonstrated how precious Daisy was to each of the brothers. The story flowed so naturally and easily that I was completely immersed in the story. I lost track of time while reading and found my jaw muscles hurt from the constant smiling I was doing. I even found myself laughing out loud at some of the things Daisy would say or the typical bickering between the brothers. Ms. Castle even surprised me with a little plot twist which is always appreciated. Precious Starlight is the third book in the Galafrax series. I had not read the other books but had no difficulty following along with the story. And now that I have discovered this terrific series, I’m going to have to download books one and two onto my e-reader. Then I will be ready when I need some pure escapism and fun.
Quads of Galafrax, 3
Can things get any worse for Daisy Putter? Abducted and transported across the galaxy, all she can do is wait to be sold by greedy aliens. Her luck changes when she's rescued by a team of red-skinned Demos soldiers from Galafrax. Daisy is thrust into a world of quadruple sexiness she finds hard to resist, especially the Commander and his brothers.
Commanding officers Loz and his brothers Tos, Cir, and Bex, are captivated by the white-haired beauty now on their ship, and quickly fall under her alluring spell. A fiery passion flairs between them, and they know she belongs to them.
When powerful ruling quads set their sights on Daisy, and try to steal her from her chosen men, the Stormstrong brothers must use every trick they know to save not only their Daisy, but the whole city from a corrupt power.
Be Warned: menage sex (MFMMM), bondage, anal sex
No matter how Daisy Putter looked at it, there was no win-win scenario. In fact, it appeared to be all lose-lose. She didn’t know what was worse: that she’d been kidnapped by aliens, along with a group of other women, or that the two remaining women in the cages either side of her were complete and utter twits.
Sure, she had sympathy for them. Who in their right mind enjoyed being abducted by aliens, or put ‘on sale’ in space, millions of light-years from home? Right now, all they could hope for was to be bought by someone kind enough not to hurt them.
The prospect of ever being rescued? Zero to none.
“I still don’t understand,” said Stacy, the leggy blonde with the perky fake breasts. In fact, Daisy doubted there was much on the woman’s body that wasn’t artificial. The woman whined in Daisy’s right ear, sounding like nails scraping down a chalkboard. No doubt, back on Earth all she had to do was bat her eyelids, pucker her collagen-enhanced lips, and men would fall at her feet.
“It’s clear I’m beautiful. I’m not short or fat, like some people.” Her gaze slid to Daisy who rolled her eyes, ignoring the direct insult. “Perfect people are always higher targets for kidnapping. So, why did they take her?”
The brunette on Daisy’s left, Peta, had an ass you could bounce a coin off, her skin a lovely shade of ebony. Her teeth were gleaming examples, like those seen in dental care ads. Daisy slid another glance at her perfectly perky tits and heaved a heavy sigh.
Talk about the daisy among the thorny roses.
“Stacy, we talked about this before. It’s our colours. It has to be why they chose us, not just because we’re more attractive than others, or they wouldn’t have abducted her,” Peta said, motioning to Daisy. “We can’t all be perfect. You have lovely golden hair. I have rich chocolate brown. The others had black and red coloured hair. But I have no idea what to call her colour.”
“Albino,” Daisy added to the conversation, more for her own benefit. Daisy shrugged. It was true: her long white hair had no colour at all. Her parents had named her Daisy when she’d been born with stark white hair and pale skin. Attempting to get a tan, besides one in a spray bottle, always left her blotchy and red. She simply had to accept the fact she was colourless, plain and overweight.
Stacy snorted in an un-ladylike way. “Still, fat people have no business being─”
“Abducted? Oh, trust me, Blondie. I’d love for you to have all the fun. I’ll just head back to Earth, put my feet up and have a cuppa and a hot doughnut.”
Daisy’s empty stomach chose at the same time to make its protest at not being fed known, with a loud growl.
Stacy screwed up her face at Daisy. “You are disgusting.”
“Better than trying to find a single brain cell in your head,” Daisy muttered under her breath, rubbing her stomach.
“I heard that. You fat, ugly pig.”
Oh dear, Stacy was in full, PMS bitch-mode again. Mind you, she’d been bitching on and off for what seemed like an eternity since they’d been abducted.
Daisy had connected with one of the women, Ruby. She was about the same size, not to mention one of the more sensible women among them. The kinship helped them both through the trauma of their situation. Sadly, Ruby had been sold off to some creepy fish-like creature.
Rather than give in and verbally spar with a brainless halfwit, Daisy just sighed again, resting her head against the back bars of the cage and trying to imagine herself back at home, her feet tucked into her Garfield slippers, sipping hot chocolate.
Daisy owned a bakery in a small country town in South Australia. She’d been on her way to work, a short seven-minute walk from her house to the shop, at two in the morning when out of the blue she’d been paralysed by some weird, blindingly bright white light. She’d passed out, only to wake up naked, with a heap of crying and completely freaked-out women surrounding her.
For what seemed like days, they’d been left with only water until, one by one, they’d had collars snapped around their necks and been dragged from their cages, only to be put on sale.
Buyers had come and gone, and it whittled down to only Daisy, Stacy and Peta, the bottom of the slave barrel.
“What I wouldn’t give for a hot bath and a massage at a salon.” Stacy started up again. “My nails are completely ruined.”
Daisy didn’t know what she had to do to get sold, but she was willing to try anything if it got her away from Stacy, the spoilt salon queen.
BOOM! Daisy’s head snapped as the ground under them shook violently. Her eyes widened as the door, which led out to the auction room, exploded in a spectacular fireball. She flinched as burning debris flung outwards and rained down on their cages.
“Clear!” A deep voice boomed. In raced a dozen huge red men with black hair, in black uniforms, holding some kind of glowing blue weapons, which they briefly aimed at the women before lowering them.
Daisy winced, covering her ears as Peta and Stacy screamed at a pitch that could shatter glass and liquefy internal organs.
The big red men backed off. Daisy was more curious than afraid, and she tilted her head and blinked. Was she seeing double, triple even? Why did so many of the men look alike? Were they clones or something?
One of the non-clones handed his weapon to one of the four clones standing just behind him, before approaching the cages and kneeling down.
“It will be all right, pretty human females. We are not here to harm you, but rescue you.”
His gaze swept from Stacy, to her, to Peta before coming back to Daisy. She guessed it was because she was the only non-hysterical one of the three.
“Who the hell are you?” Daisy blurted out.
“I am Commander Loz Stormstrong, and we,” he motioned to the men standing behind him, “…are Demos, from the planet Galafrax.”
She fixed him with an 'are-you-stupid' stare. “As if I have a clue what any of that means.”
His grin widened.
“Shut up, Daisy!” hissed Stacy, no longer hysterical.
The commander, for a big red alien with big bulging muscles, was rather handsome and all the clones, in one way or another, appeared clean-cut with good looks.
“We have human females living on our planet, and human women are now a protected species under our laws. Let’s get you all out of these.” Loz went to work on the lock on Daisy's cage while two others, accompanying Loz, worked on Stacy’s and Peta’s.
They yanked open the doors and Loz held out his hand to Daisy.
“You have the colour of starlight in the vastness of space. So beautiful!”
Less than impressed with his flattery, she snorted, but was happy to get the hell out of the cage. She didn’t miss the way the Demos men’s gazes slid over their bodies before they were covered with blankets, seemingly appearing from nowhere.
“Take them to the ship and the medical bay. Make sure they are unharmed.”
She watched as Peta and Stacy were swept off their feet by the big red guys and carried back through the still smouldering hole in the wall.
She could see it in his eyes, he was going to try and lift her too. Daisy quickly yanked back, almost stumbling, but Commander Loz caught her by the arm.
“Don’t you dare try to lift me. I can walk by myself.”
“All Demos soldiers are strong. You are so small. I have been ordered to keep you safe, and there is burning debris on the floor. I will not allow your feet to be hurt.”
With the lack of food making her light-headed, and his little speech making sense, she conceded, nodding her consent. The commander puffed out his chest for a moment before bending slightly, hoisting her up into his arms.
Oh boy, is he trying to impress me? Daisy shifted awkwardly, hooking her hands around his neck, frowning in puzzlement.
“Why do your, ah, soldiers look the same?”
“You are seeing my quad soldier teams. My brothers are still on the ship, as they have different duties. Understand, every male Demos is born in sets of identical quads.”
Now, there was something to blow her mind. “Every Demos male?”
“Every single one.”
“What about your women?”
He carried her through the doorway, and she glanced about to see Demos soldiers in all directions. Their gazes turned, falling on her as Commander Loz passed them.
“They are born singular.”
She giggled, feeling rather ridiculous. In fact, everything she’d been through was utterly ludicrous.
“Four brothers and one girl? That seems a little uneven. How do your women choose one of the brothers from the others?”
“They don’t. On Galafrax, it is one set of quads to one female. It is the way it has always been.”
“Oh, wow! Four to one.”
Commander Loz gave her a bright smile.
“So are you taking us, uh, human women back to Earth?”
“I am sorry, my lovely lady––we’ve been able to free you, but we will be taking you back to Galafrax to live on our planet. Take heart: our planet treasures females, as soon you will see for yourself. Many Demos quads will vie for your hand, wanting you as their sheraz, as you are beyond beautiful.”
Okay, now she knew she was hallucinating. Daisy burst out in full-fledged hysterical laughter, as she realized: one woman, four men.
“Crap.” The reality set in and her head spun. “I can’t marry four men!” she screeched, before passing clean out.
Daisy is pretty sure things can’t get any worse, after being kidnapped by aliens and waiting to be sold. Although with the human company she’s left with being sold is starting to sound good. Then suddenly rescue comes in the form of a team of red skinned Demos warriors from Galafrax. When Daisy meets the Commander and his three brothers, she finds a whole new world. The attraction between them is instant but can she really embrace a relationship with four aliens, no matter how sexy she finds them? Commander Loz and his brothers Tos, Cir and Bex feel the incredible pull of the lovely white haired female, but they also know that their orders are to bring her and the other females back to the planet to meet other quads. But Daisy is different and they just know that she’s meant to be theirs, even if they have to fight the ruling quads to keep her. I really enjoyed this book! Daisy is feisty and determined to have some say in the path her life takes, even the unexpected twists it’s taken so far which made her a fun character to read. Not to mention that the Stormstrong brothers are just HOT. I really enjoyed the distinct personalities between the brothers and how that showed in their interactions with Daisy, especially when it came to the sex scenes. What more could a woman want than four men totally devoted to her and her pleasure. In fact Daisy proved that she was more than willing to fight for them and the future she wanted with them. This was a fast read, but only because I couldn’t put it down and had to finish the book in one sitting. There was no way I could stop before Daisy and her men found their happy ever after.
Loving this series! The author has a proclivity for writing romance that appeals to your average woman. Her heroine is always average, who has low self-esteem or body acceptance issues. And the men who fall for her help her to see how beautiful she is. How awesome is that? Daisy is one of three women left to be sold. The bottom of the barrel, if you will. When rescued imagine her surprise when the Stormstrong brothers Loz, Tos, Cir, and Bex take an immediate interest. And ominously they aren't the only ones. Since the Demos men of Galafrax are so big, a woman with a little meat on her bones is considered more desirable than any other. Sign me up! While they all look the same in the beginning, Daisy quickly sees the differences in personality. This story brought more to light about Galafrax and the politics and workings of this new world that the rescued women are to now call home. This was a fast moving story that got my pulse going for the suspense and tension as well as the erotic interludes between Daisy and her men. And I especially loved how the women considered "perfect" on earth were not desirable at all to the quads of Galafrax. Not to be missed, especially if you've read the previous books.
Daisy thought things couldn't get worse when she gets kidnapped until she meet the others that had been kidnapped. Daisy is rescued by Commander Loz. Once his brothers meet her they all want her. Daisy and the quad had such an attraction to each other. The quad had to fight to keep Daisy and Daisy fought to be with her guys. This was such a great story and I am really enjoying this series!
I like all of Angela castle books this is a nice addition to this series.
Love the series. Looking forward to more!
The men are always such sweethearts. I hope this isn't the last book in the series. I would love to see more of this series and more of the characters from previous books in the series to see how they are doing and how many bids they have.(^v^)
Bad grammar? Yes, but true. I completely enjoyed this story. They just keep getting better. I would love for the human wives from these three stories and the fourth to get together and come up with some good changes for the way some things are done. It would be interesting and they could show the Demos bitches how the quads should be treated. Anywho, I hope the next story comes out soon. I definitely recommend this story. Enjoy!
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. It was a great, quick read with lots of hot, steamy sex topped off with an interesting setting and nefarious villains. Angela has created a fascinating world in which men are born in "quads" or fours and these giants do not care for their own muscular, demanding women. They want soft and sweet. Plump human women have become the new coveted prize for these guys. For those of us who are a bit bigger, it is especially nice to read that hunky men could actually prefer our rounded softness to the angular, skinny women that men seem to prefer today. I love the interactions between the brothers. They are still macho, manly men, but they are also caring towards each other and extremely protective of and nurturing towards their women. That being said, I would have loved to read more about the "broken" quads in the old folks home and I would love to read about one of these human women making some meaningful changes on Galifrax. For example, the author mentions that the heroine's attendants' parents are a broken quad and that they need special care. The attendant quads have to work in the palace to get special care for them. I would have loved it if she had included in the epilogue that the new High Councillors had created special funding for the poorer Galifraxians so that they could send their broken parents to these homes for the care they needed. I thought it was also very interesting simply to read about the older Galifraxians. They seemed quirky and fun and I don't feel like I got to spend nearly enough time with them :)

This was a very good book and a very hard one to put down. There is a lot of hot sweaty sex with four hot males. Its a fast paced story with a lot of drama, sex and love. Very enjoyable.
Another funny, sexy Quads story from Angela. This is a wonderful world she has created and the characters are definitely larger than life but thoroughly enjoyable. I enjoy the inclusion of some of the previous characters to link the individual books into a series but still have each one a separate story. The sex scenes are funny yet tender and let us see that appearances are not everything.ex
Loved it!!! When is the next one coming out? The world she spins is amazing. Fist pump to us chunky girls. I would recommend reading the whole series to get the full benefit but loved this one and will read again
Love this series of books, my my u need a fan while reading this one! I have really enjoyed reading the quads of galafrax and am looking forward to more in the same series.
This series just keeps getting better and better. And unlike some other ménage books this is a story driven book not a bunch of scenes thrown together loosely tied together. I really enjoy this author - do yourself a favor and spend some time in her books.
WOW THAT'S CRAZY HOT AND SEXY READING!!!! THIS ENTRY WAS JUST AS GOOD AS THE PREVIOUS BOOKS AND ALTHOUGH ANOTHER WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE SERIES YOU CAN READ IT AS A STAND-ALONE BUT I RECOMMEND YOU CHECK OUT ALL OF THEM!!! THERE'S PLENTY OF ROOM FOR MORE AND I HOPE MS. CASTLE CONTINUES TO ADD TO THIS TERRIFIC ENJOYABLE,ENGAGING SIZZLING HOT SENSUAL READING EXPERIENCE. ANGELA GIVES YOU A COMPLETE PACKAGE OF ENTERTAINING,INTRIGUING DEVELOPMENT,SEXUALLY HOT SCENES,DRAMA AND A HEA ROMANCE THAT WILL BE LEAVING YOU GLAD YOU HAD FUN READING HER BOOKS!!
