Mid-Winter Entertainment

It’s mid-winter, a time when Christmas is far behind us and spring feels as though it’s never going to get here. One of the things I like to do is go to movies. If you'd like to know a few of my recommendations, drop on over to the Decadent Diva's Blog.

Weekend Book Club--Dark Strength by Cynthia Sax

DARK STRENGTH is the third book in the Refuge sci-fi romance series by Cynthia Sax.

These books are dark and violent and the romance is unconventional, but they are stories of overcoming odds, of surviving, and finding love.

The heroes are anti-heroes. They aren't human and live in a violent world. They make no apologies for who they are or what they have to do in order to survive. The heroines are survivors, women with brutal pasts who must overcome that trauma not only to survive, but to truly live.

I'll be watching for the release of Dark Fire.

These books aren't for everyone, but if you enjoy a dark sci-fi story then you must read this series. If any kind of sexual trauma or violence bothers you, you might want to check out some of the authors lighter sci-fi romances.

As the author herself says on Amazon: This is dark SciFi erotic romance. If you're sensitive to violence (of ANY kind), please read one of my lighter SciFi erotic romances.

Series order:

All of these stories can be read on their own.
Dark Thoughts (Kralj's story)

Dark Flight (Orol's story)
Dark Strength (Balvan's story)
Dark Fire (Dare's story--not released yet)


The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall.

Balvan, the Refuge’s Gatekeeper, is huge, green, and has a reputation for crushing skulls. He’s a modified humanoid, genetically designed to be the ultimate warrior. One of a kind and considered monstrous by many, he never expects to find his mate, the one female meant for him.

Elyce, snatched from her home half a solar cycle ago, has finally escaped her brutal captors. She arrives at the Refuge barely alive. Only a blood transfusion from the largest male she has ever seen will save her life. But it will also bind her to him forever. Staring up, up, up at him, she wonders why she wants to be free. His gentle touch revives yearnings she thought dead. His lips set her skin ablaze. His massive muscles make her feel safe.

That feeling could be an illusion. Elyce’s captors want their slave back and they won’t stop until they have her. To give his mate her freedom, Balvan might be forced to give up everything he has – his role as the Gatekeeper, Elyce’s love, and his life.

Dark Strength is a STANDALONE Alien SciFi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.
