Title: Colonist's Wife
Author: Kylie Scott
Release Date: March 15th 2013
Publisher: Ellora's Cave
Source: Received from the author for an honest review

It’s 2088, and having testified in a gangland murder trial, nowhere on Earth is safe for Louise. Witness Protection has organized a new identity and a marriage contract for her on the mining colony of Esther, one of the moons circling Jupiter. The man who meets her there is not the groom she expected.

Adam Elliot is neither sweet nor sincere, and he looks like he was hosed off a barroom floor. But soon a memorial service reveals Adam’s soft underbelly. Throw some stellar sex into the mix and the two decide that maybe marriage to each other might not be so bad after all.

But an assassin is already at work. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues on the planet’s frozen surface. Louise is determined to live long enough to draw the maniac away from the husband she might just have fallen for.

A Romantica® futuristic erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

My Thoughts

What can I say - Kylie Scott definitely knows how to suck a reader in, because right from the start Colonist's Wife had me with it's vivid imagery and great characters.

I was intrigued by 'Louise' and her witness protection arranged marriage contract to a snarly, smelly brute on the mining colony of Esther; and Adam is not the man Louise was expecting, she's ready to run even before the first overpowering whiff of him reaches her nose.

Kylie really does have a talent for writing clever conversation and smouldering sexual attraction; I can attest to snorting with laughter as these two snipe and lust after each other, and did I mention it's hot?
Oh yeah, it's HOT!!

A reasonably short read at just 90 pages but
Louise and Adam's story is sweet, funny, sexy and sensual; and it has a great thriller/mystery element too which brings some interesting secondary characters into play.

Adams friends Bon and Nathan really stood out as strong and loyal friends and
I'm hoping they get their own stories sometime in the future, I definitely want to read more about them!

Colonist's Wife
is an
deliciously sexy and fast paced read.
