About the Book

(from Goodreads)

A desperate girl on the run with nowhere to hide… A warrior who has made a vow never to claim a bride… Sophia Waterhouse is being Hunted and the only man who can save her is the one she fears the most…

Sophia Waterhouse has always been afraid of needles and vampires so there’s no way she wants anything to do with a modern day Count Dracula—even if he does come wrapped in the package of a huge Kindred warrior with blond hair and ice blue eyes. She’s only on the Kindred Mothership to participate in her sister Liv’s wedding and that’s all.

Sylvan is a Tranq Kindred who has made a sacred vow never to call a bride. After a devastating rejection on his home planet, his heart is a block of ice no one can melt—or so he thinks until he meets Sophia.

When their ship is forced down in the middle of a rugged mountain range Sophia and Sylvan are stranded. Running for their lives they have only each other to depend on. Will they give in to the intense attraction between them or will the evil hunting Sophia take its toll? You’ll have to read Brides of the Kindred Book 2—Hunted to find out.

My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

Hunted is the second book in the Brides of the Kindred series. I had listened to the first book, Claimed, about Olivia and Baird, the warrior who claimed her. Hunted is about Olivia’s twin sister, Sophia, who is being hunted by the Scourge, an evil alien race. Sylvan promises Baird to guard and protect her with his life and, boy, does he!

I like the characters in this book. I love the way the Kindred warriors protect the woman they love and Sylvan is no different, even though he has taken a vow never to claim a bride and he believes that he is incapable of falling in love. Sophia gets a little whiny at times but I still like her. The twins’ best friend Kat is great! She’s sassy and opinionated.

I don’t read a lot of erotic romance but I think these books are great.  I like the way Evangeline Anderson incorporates sex into the story. The people who are in love physically need each other, even when they don’t realize yet that they are in love. I can’t wait for the next audiobook from Evangeline Anderson!

Warning: this is an erotic romance so if you’re not comfortable with a lot of sex and sexually explicit language, don’t read this book.
