Apparition (New World #4)
Half Castian and half Tonan, Doss is considered nothing more than a Tonian hybrid. A being to be feared with the power to kill by penetrating what is supposed to be impenetrable. Loathed by many feared by more, Doss has spent the last seven hundred years alone, shunned by the Tonans on his planet. He preferred it that way until a nude female rider on a huge black stallion fleeing for her life catches his eye. If left alone both beast and human would be killed by their pursuant, an enraged Tonan warrior. When the scent of the female invades his nostrils Doss is captivated. He must have the female human and will go to great lengths to secure her safety. Zoe hates both Castians and Tonans. The promise of salvation from dying Earth, on planet Ulsy, had been nothing more than a lie. Human males were slaughtered and human women were captured to lure secrets of the Castian planets, Bagron and co-planet Dargon, from enslaved warriors with the promise of sex. When met with the six foot six hybrid warrior who moved like an apparition in battle to save her and her beloved stallion, Caveat, Zoe is unsure what to do. She has no idea of his intentions, but from the shiver that runs down her spine she is certain she’s about to find out
Bay's Mercenary (Unearthly World #1)
Bay went from tortured human captive to exotic alien pet in a heartbeat. Zargonnii warrior mercenaries are like nothing she has ever seen before. What do they want from her? The unearthly world Bay is taken to is fascinating, frightening and a lot different from Earth. Zargonnii males have never seen a small, vulnerable female. Their females are huge, aggressive, dominant; and the two sexes live apart for safety reasons. Zane finds himself saddled with a bald, unusual pet Earth female. Females are anything but vulnerable in his world. This female is an oddity, and for some reason, his new pet brings on his mating cycle. Zane is mortified, until he discovers this intelligent pet of his has a secret—she’s no pet at all. It takes everything in Zane’s power to control the temptation of his kind’s breeding habits—until he can control it no more.
What I liked
One of the best things about reading a book featuring alien/human H/h is the culture clash. The characters have to learn each other. They do not have the benefit of knowing the ins and outs of the culture. Even an alpha character has to try and understand their love interest because if they do not, the story stops before it begins. Scholey is a good world builder. The stories are not long so there is not much time to get the essentials out and still have a good plot. Scholey manages to avoid those pitfalls.
What I did not like
With alien beings you have different physical features. An author can play it safe and make the aliens look just like us, or they can take a risk. I can get behind either method. Scholey's Castian and Tonan males are similar to human men. The Zargonni, well they aren't. I was not as happy with the physical description of the Zargonni. In the grand scheme of things, that one is easily overcome.
