Intimidator by Cari Silverwood Book Tour

Willow has her hands full scraping out a life in a grungy neighborhood where drugs and crime are the norm. Life is hard, but it's about to get harder. Being transformed into a sexual pet for an alien warrior may be her only way out.

But Stom, the man she's been awarded to as a battle honor, has no use for a female, not when his heart is still in a million pieces.

Though the need to be Stom's mate is overwhelming her, mending his heart isn't going to be enough. His enemies are searching, looking for the women who are more than they seem, but she's in their hands before she discovers she's more-than-human.

Sometimes it sucks to be a chosen one.

All the cravings of the past day or so resurrected in a small tsunami. Lust. In front of Willow, was a man who embodied that in every molten move, in every cell of his well-sculpted body.

“I’m bad?” she whispered.

“You. Mmm.” Stom lowered his head and scented her neck, lips pressing on her, here, there – kisses that stirred her more than they should, because they promised so much. Where else might he kiss? Drifts of air cooled her where his nose touched her skin, where he breathed on her.

“Bad. Definitely.” Then he licked her neck, slowly, in one helluva long caress with his tongue, like a predator tasting his mate, before he kissed her softly again.

She shivered. I don’t know this guy. Not really. Am I such a slut?

“You’re beautiful. And you smell so good I want to eat you all up, every time I’m near. Why the fuck is that?”

The tinge of menace made her go up on her toes.

Then he bit the side of her neck, hard.

She keened, threatened by, enraptured by, the savagery of his teeth sinking into her muscle. Helpless, she shut her eyes. She tried not to let her collapsing legs make her slide down the tree trunk and straight to the ground. She had no wish to look like a weak female unable to resist...cause if she did, it seemed like he might take her, here, now.

His teeth let go.

Fucked against a tree. God. What an idea.

Where he held her wrists onto the bark, she tugged again, but even with a hurt hand his grip was fierce.

What had she done? She’d thought Stom the sort of man who needed an invitation to get going. Seemed as if shooting him had done the trick. Next time she wanted a date, she’d put a bullet in him.

He put his mouth to her ear, nuzzling her there, while he explored her below – fondling her breast, her belly, and her hip, then tugging up her T-shirt. He took a handful of her breast like he owned it, and squeezed so much it hurt.

Something about being forced against the tree, about him making her stay there while he played with her body, sizzled through her like lightning through rain.

The Epilogue for Precious Sacrifice is located at the beginning of this book, which is very interesting and ties the 2 stories together ;)

I have to say that I really like the Aliens that Ms. Silverwood has created in these books. They are from different worlds, they are well defined, they are emotional, and they are very intelligent beings.

While this story follows the same course as the 1st, there is much more going on in Willow & Stom's story.

The evil Bak-lal are invading various planets, causing extermination of species -and ultimately planets. The Preyfinders are attempting to stop the invasion of Earth. Oddly, though, they are "bonding" with women on a deeper level then they're aware of, and find that they really need each other in the epic battle against the enemy.

This story contains romance (general & erotic...lots of erotic), action, some angst, and a bit of suspense. It was a quick, sexy read, and I want to read more about these characters!!

He glanced over. The light silvered her, worshipping the undulations of her body -- the upper curves of her breasts where they spilled from the neckline of her T-shirt, her lips, her cheekbones, the sweet curls of her black hair around her ears. She was, he fumbled for the as yet unused human word...dead sexy. Hot. Willow was someone he'd like to handle for more than just for a kiss.

Tragedy doesn't care if you are human or alien -- it wreaks havoc with everyone. Neither Stom nor Willow are looking for anything more than to just get through one day to the next.

As an "honor", Stom is sent to Earth to find a woman, a pet, to ease his soul. Little does anyone know, the pain inside him cannot be healed.

Willow, is one payday away from oblivion. Taking care of her cousin, Ally, who can't be around people for more than a few hours at time, has caused her world to shrink down to work and caring for Ally.

Looking into the eyes of Stom, Willow sees more than the hard exterior that he projects. Stom fights against the storm of emotion that flows within him, knowing that all he can offer is more pain.

Alien or not, Willow finds herself falling for Stom, but can the demons of her world and his tear them apart or bring them together?

Once again, looking forward to the next installment of the Preyfinders.

Also Available in the Preyfinders Series

Precious Sacrifice

Jadd is an Igrakk Warrior, honed like the sharpest blade, to kill and to command his men, but his conscience gets in the way. When punishment entails becoming a Preyfinder and trialling the Pet-creating drug on a human called Brittany, he plans to stay calm and do his duty. Until he falls in love.

A Preyfinder is trained to withstand hardship and pain, but Jadd would rather kneel before a firestorm than leave his captive, Brittany, to be stalked and killed. The choice between love and loyalty to his soldier brothers may tear him in two.

This was a well written Sci-fi erotic romance: it's short, it's sexy, and it's sweet (but not too sweet). I liked the storyline and felt like a lot of story was written in a small book (that's a good thing)!

Brittany is dealing with the loss of her boyfriend, a year ago, and trying to go through the motions of life.

Jadd is an exiled alien warrior, who is given a second chance at service by coming to Earth and proving he can be a Preyfinder.

And Brittany is the prey...and all of Earth's fate is based upon her ability to succumb to the alien’s trials. ;)

I'm sincerely looking forward to the 2nd book in this series!!

Aliens have feelings too. Trained from a young age to obey his commanders, Jadd falters in the heat of battle and is sent to Earth as punishment.

Brittany is just trying to make a better life for herself. Working and going to school, she can feel that a change is about to happen and she fears it’s something bad.

Brittany's unconditional acceptance of her future only makes Jadd fall deeper for her, but will it make a difference in the end?

I'm ready for book two to learn more about the Preyfinders.
