Red Sands: A Science Fiction Alien Romance (Warlords of Atera Book 1)

Published to Amazon on July 22, 2019

Author Celia Kyle

She’s on the run from a violent past. He solves his problems with a sword. Fleeing a life of abuse, Sheri climbs aboard a mail-order mate spaceship bound for a distant station, but never arrives… Fate intervenes and her trip takes a quick, deadly turn when she crashes on the planet Atera. She’s surrounded by endless sand dunes, dangerous creatures, and alien beings that remind her of Earth lizards. But one particular lizard hardly leaves her thoughts—a sexy, two legged, muscular male bent on protecting and caring for her at all costs. Drazan is a fierce warrior, the strongest Ateran of the Red Sands, he rules his dunes with an iron fist and sharp sword, and is honor bound to face all challengers to his position. During one of these battles something… strange… happens. Fire rains from the skies and a strange black metal box filled with females crashes to the sands. All thoughts of fighting are lost to the allure of these odd humans—especially one deliciously curvy female who stirs his blood. Now he finds himself with dark yearnings, strong need, and a hardness between his legs that he’s never used before. With Sheri consuming his thoughts, Drazan may have forgotten about his last challenge but his opponent’s brother hasn’t. Now he’s determined to see Drazan suffer… even if that means killing Sheri.

Official published review:

Shifting of the sands

The author hit us with the action and danger right from the first page with this one, but she also showed us the strength of the poor ladies caught up in it. I love how they managed to survive all on their own. But they didn’t thrive until the author threw a group of aliens in the mix. I enjoyed how these two had an instant connection, but it took a little work on his part to convince her. The author really did a fantastic job with the characters and the emotions they brought to the relationship. The slow build to the HEA was perfect and I couldn’t help but caught up in the drama at the end. This book is a fantastic weekend read and I can’t wait to see what happens next on the sand planet.
