Review: Abduction by Alexandra O'Hurley

Abduction (Ishadarian Saga, #1) by Alexandra O’Hurley

Publisher: New Concepts Publishing
Genre: Futuristic Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Besh abducts the beautiful woman before him without a second thought, knowing her to be his mate. He drops her off at the nearest planet in the realm, trying to give her time to come to terms with her fate.

Lord Fatel is charged with tutoring Kaya in the ways of his society, yet is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. He faces death if he touches her, yet he thinks of nothing else.

Faced with a whole new world and a whole new world of feelings, Kaya’s journey is filled with decadence, passion, and beauty.

Ashira Datya’s Review

Don't be fooled by the title; Abduction is not about some poor woman who is abducted and tortured before falling victim of Stockholm Syndrome. The story begins in a small town on Earth, in an area that is very warm; where an alien invasion force is patrolling for insurgents that would fight against the new ruling force of Earth. The platoon of alien soldiers stop inside a diner to find food and drink to help keep them hydrated. Here, Besh, the general in charge finds his mate, an Earth woman named Kaya.

Besh takes Kaya to another colony planet so that she can be educated on the ways of the empire Besh serves before deciding if she will mate with him or if she wishes to be returned to Earth and back to her life. Kaya's teacher is a man named Lord Fatel and it is his job to instruct her on the ritual Sini mon; a period of an Earth month where the would be mates are kept apart while the woman learns about the man and decides or not if she wants to mate with him or not. During her training, Kaya and Fatel have to fight to keep from giving into the emotional connection they share or one of them could die.

When Kaya's lessons are done for the day and she is asleep, she has a sexual relationship in her dreams with her mate, Besh and falls in love with him. Finally, on the day she is to meet Besh, Kaya is in for a huge surprise and agrees to mate with him. They break tradition and make love after she promises to stay with him forever and the next day, they participate in the mating ceremony before again, partaking in passionate sex. The day after they are mated, Besh is betrayed by one he considered a close friend and Kaya must race to save Besh and his entire family!

I gave Abduction 4 teacups because of all of the things happening in the story between Kaya and Besh, and Besh and his "friend." I enjoyed Abduction and I can't wait to read the sequel; I can't wait to find out what happens further with Besh and Kaya.

Abduction receives a heat rating score of a 2 from me; the sex was passionate and moving, but they weren't overly graphic, so if you aren't a fan of very graphic sex scenes, then Abduction is for you! Again, I can't wait for the second book in this series.

4 Tea Cups!
