this was a little different from the books I like to read but I found it enjoyable. I liked the characters, but there didn't seem to be much adjustment with the aliens exist theme.
The Inteli, 1
The Inteli, a colorful warrior race sworn to protect the galaxy, need women. Centuries of fighting and a little genetic experimentation mean their race now faces extinction.
Danickra stumbles upon his solution in the human world, and this solution turns out to be more than he could ever have imagined. But danger and betrayal threaten not only their bond, but also their lives.
Opal was having a bad day. Then she was abducted by aliens.
As she learns more about this alien race, one in particular takes her heart. But treachery is afoot, and Opal must show she’s not as fragile as the aliens think.
Can this human woman answer the call of destiny and be a savior of a warrior race?
Be Warned: forced seduction, anal sex, double vaginal penetration (aliens have two penises)
One of the walls opened up, and a bright pink man walked in confidently. They laughed harder. Heather got off the platform bed and walked up to the man. He was brilliant, human-looking except for his bright pink skin, which was hard, almost metal-plated, and shiny like scales. His fingers were long sharp claws, and he had a long tail with a hand on its end that swished when he walked.
Heather touched his rock-hard chest. “Come out now, Ethan, before I kick your arse! I will say I love the pink. How did you get it so bright? Oh I so forgive you kidnapping us. He is yummy.”
What the hell was going on? Opal thought.
Heather took a step back towards her as the man blinked, and Opal could now see his eyes were yellow. “Wow, great contact lenses.”
His tail moved back and forth, and the hand at the end opened and waved.
“Oh. My. God,” Heather squealed. “What great effects! The tail looks so real.”
Opal laughed and moved to join Heather. She loved Ethan, and she decided she would to buy him a thank you present for cheering her up. She smiled up at Mr. Pink. “Hi. I know my friend sent y...” She stopped mid-sentence as the wall opened again. This time a bright yellow man walked in. He was brighter than a daisy and had sky blue hair.
Opal took several steps towards him, drawn to his beauty. Staring up into purple eyes she sighed. Contact lenses were great. He was tall, easily over seven feet or more, and the chest she was currently looking at was to die for, big, broad, and she bet hard, even without the effects of the shiny scale plating covering his body.
Licking her lips, she groaned. “Yum, yum.” Mr. Pink was hot, but Mr. Yellow had her hand involuntarily fanning her face.
Walking the rest of the way to him, she looked up at his masculine face and moaned out. “Ethan really outdid himself with you. You look freaking awesome. Well you both do, but…” She reached up and touched his chest to see if it felt as hard as it looked. Mr. Yellow blinked and gave her a startled look, and then he smiled, showing wicked long sharp white fang-like teeth. Reaching up she touched one sharp point. “Wow, these even feel real.”
Her finger caught on the front tooth tip, and a drop of blood started to drip down into his mouth. “Ouch.”
Opal snatch her hand away, but quick as lighting his clawed hand gently pulled it back, and into his mouth. He sucked on her finger. Shivering, she clamped her legs together and tried to move her eyes from his intense stare. The bright purple orbs seemed to darken, trapping her as she stood on tip-toes leaning into him.
Heather’s voice snapped her out of the staring contest. Biting her lip so she wouldn’t laugh as Heather groaned, “Opal, you have to lick their skin. Whatever Ethan did, or used to make them this color, it doesn’t come off, and they taste like chocolate.”
Turning to watch she giggled as Heather licked Mr. Pink’s muscular chest. Opal grinned and tuned back to Mr. Yellow and pointed to his chest. She needed to check this out. “May I?”
He grinned and pulled her closer. Hesitantly at first, she leaned her head in and licked his hard muscled chest. Yum. He did taste good. Chocolate. Mmm. Her favorite. He felt odd. His hard plated skin felt as smooth as satin. She pulled back and tapped on it, wondering what Ethan had used. He chuckled as she continued to explore.
Heather laughed as Mr. Pink picked her up and started to walk to one of the panel walls. “Oh my God, Opal, you don’t think Ethan paid these guys to sleep with us?”
Staring up at the gorgeous model face, she sighed. Great, just great. Ethan thought she was so desperate to lose her virginity he’d ordered male escorts, and did them up the same as his alien shoot he had done today, knowing her fantasy of being with an alien.
Heather was now trying to get down as she yelled, “I can, we can, find our own men.”
Mr. Pink growled and held Heather with both hands.
Heather continued. “We are not that desperate to get laid. To sleep with a guy our friend hired to have sex with us, even if you are hot.”
Mr. Pink stopped and placed Heather on the ground. He then looked at Mr. Yellow, who grinned and nodded like they were making up their minds about something. Mr. Pink chuckled and stalked Heather who’d been backing away from him. He picked her up again and grinned then, walked to the panel and left, leaving Opal with Mr. Yellow. He shrugged and stared down at her.
Opal smiled at him and tried to think of a way to word things without insulting him, and him picking her up like Heather and being carted away. “Ah, yeah, what she said. I can totally find my own ma—” She screamed as he picked her up like she weighed nothing at all.
The wall panel opened up, and Opal saw Mr. Pink taking Heather down a hallway, her friend screaming profanities as Mr. Yellow took her in the opposite direction.
The Inteli, a warrior race of aliens, find themselves facing extinction within the next thousand years if something isn’t done quickly to produce offspring. Inteli scientists have deemed that Earth women are not only compatible with the Inteli genetic make-up but that they can produce many offspring. The warrior king, Danickra finds the perfect candidate to be his mate in Opal who he abducts and takes aboard his ship. But not everyone within the Inteli race wants the humans to live amongst them and danger and betrayal threaten the forming bond between Danickra and Opal. Opal’s day couldn’t get any worse. Or could it? Not only was she betrayed by her boyfriend but now she finds herself kidnapped from her planet and taken aboard a space ship but she is expected to mate with an alien, he might be a sexy alien that set her heart on fire he is still an alien. But does it really matter? I really have to admit that I am not a sci-fi romance fan but I am a huge Hazel Gower follower so I decided to take a chance and read her latest sci-fi romance Savior and I delightfully pleased that I did. This magical author’s imagination really knows no limits and her often outrageous sense of humor can’t be beat for heart and entertainment. This story is brimming over with heart-pounding escapades and heated sensuality, danger, rife with emotions and populated with intriguing and thrilling characters that the reader will want to keep this book handy to re-read often. The first book in this exciting new series sets the tone and circumstances for the reader leading them along page by page. For this the reader has a better understanding of the characters as well as their plight that has brought them to this point in time along with the fiery and passionate bond and mating between Danickra and Opal. Warrior Danickra is controlling, sexy and lethal alien who is literally thrown for a loop with his attraction for the sassy, delicate and voluptuous beauty Opal. Their mating and bonding is charged with sexuality, conflicts and intense emotions along with some absolutely hilarious and wicked moments. Watching Opal find her strength, tenacity and shrewdness to prove to her mate as well as his people that she is strong enough to hold the title of Queen and protect the Inteli from treachery that abounds is enjoyable. The secondary characters compliment and work wonderfully to enhance each scene as well as the hero and heroine. The ending is absolutely divine and Ms. Gower teases and entices the reader with what’s next in this series to wet their craving for more.
This was a really good sci-fi book. Opal and Heather were really strong despite finding out that they had been abducted by Inteli. I loved the descriptions of the Inteli. I looking forward to the next book to see what happens and who was the traitor among them.
This was a fun read that entertained and put a few strange visuals in my head. The writing style was a little hard to follow at times, but I liked the characters as they were introduced. Opal seems stunned but practical as does her best friend Heather. The story line is nothing new – dying race in need of compatible women to repopulate with. What made this book different was the author choosing to make the aliens a little more different than usual, as per their coloration and few extra appendages. Danickra and Salamanda are two warriors willing to take one for the team, as it were. That is until they see Opal and Heather. Then they are totally on board with this program. I liked the species of Inteli as a whole, though there were a few bad apples as there are in any group. Danickra was kind of hot when he lost his temper, albeit a little deadly. While an advanced people, at times they showed themselves to be less civilized than originally thought. With the introduction of several female characters (who were a little typecast) I foresee many more books following the evolution of the relationships between Inteli and Human. With the few bombs dropped in the first book's last few chapters, there is plenty of fodder to work with. I look forward to reading them.
