[Memory Makers - Be Still My Lover's Heart Book One]
That is until she meets Tempest, an alien whose species is rumored to be the origin of the vampires. A man who makes her feel alive in ways she's never felt before.
Tempest has prayed to the Divine One for countless years for his bondmate. Shea is his long-awaited answer and so much more. One night will not be enough for a man who has waited a lifetime, but he is determined to make Shea his forever.
With a madman out to destroy them and certain death nipping at their heels, will Tempest and Shea outwit Remi and survive to share a future together, or die protecting all they hold dear?
Be Still My Lover's Heart is an action romance. The story is future and space faring based and qualifies as sci-fi/fantasy romance. It begins, right out of the gate, with a spaceship fire fight against pirates. The action continues throughout this book at a good clip. Fire fights, bar fights, illegal medical testing and spaceship fights dot the canvas of this story liberally.
Our heroes are Shea, a human lieutenant for the Earth government in the fight against piracy and Tempest, an 800-plus year old alien of vampiric nature. Tempest has been waiting an eternity in loneliness to find his mate. He finds Shea in the center of a bar fight in his establishment and knows that she is the one he has waited for. Shea is still heart-broken from the loss of her husband a few years back and to sooth the pain, enlisted. Together they go through the pain of bonding as true mates.
I found this book to be engaging right from the start. It moves along at a fast pace and draws the reader in. The characters are fully developed and the future believable. It was a fun ride and I sailed right through it in no time. Ms. Wells' book is a great read for both vampire fans and fans of science fiction romance. The only criticism I might make is that after travelling with them on their journey of discovery through so many adventures, it seemed to end a bit abruptly. I would have liked to see another chapter of closure. All in all, a great read.
