I just finished Seduce Me in Dreams where I was introduced to the Three Worlds series and the Interplanetary Militia and Rush Ender Blakely's team.

Ambrea Vas Allay is a daughter of the Emperor of Allay but has spent most of her life in prison. She has a younger immature brother who is placed on the throne via political intrigue of an uncle, and she is summoned to be banished from Allay and renounce her claim on the throne. She refuses and returns to prison.

The Interplanetary Militia sends a crac...more

Sadly Jacqui Frank's writing has gone decidedly downhill over the past few years and Seduce Me in Flames is a clear example of this.

This is a book that simply doesn't know what it's trying to say. It's part Fantasy, part Science Fiction with a little dash of Space Opera thrown in. It has a mythical middle eastern flavour with harems and would-be-pashas and yet the society is supposed to be technologically advanced.

However the most annoying parts are the larger than life alpha hero and the beaut...more

4.5 STARS

Frank's characters are why I keep buying her books! She also knows how to world build with the best of them. I admit to liking SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS better, but I think that's because I liked Bronse better. What a nice surprise then to have he and Ravenna make a cameo so we can catch up with her pregnancy and their relationship a bit. It added a little comic relief to an otherwise dark story.

That small scene made me realize, however, just how much more dynamic Rav is than Ambrea. (And, th...more

I’d been thinking, after reading and reviewing the first book in this series, that while I like it all so far, I’m not going to enjoy it as much as I do the Shadowdwellers series. But this newest book is changing my mind about that. It’s the world of the Shadowdwellers, the use of dreams, along with the characters that make that series so fascinating to me. In this series it’s the characters and their abilities that keep me reading till the early hours of the morning.

Ender is an Interplanetary M...more

OMG that book was HOTT (no pun intended). As a return to a strange world where anything can happen this was definitely another great book by Jackie Frank. I have read all her series and i can already see myself hooked on this one for years. Only downside is the time between stories that leaves you dying for more. Definitly worth every second of time to read!!

This fantasy romance is a part of the "Three Worlds" novel series by Jacquelyn Frank. This is the first I've read in the series, but not sure whether it is actually book #1? However, I completely understood everything, so I do not think it matters which order they are read.

This particular book is the story of Ambrea Vas Allay (heiress to the throne) and Rush "Ender" Blakely (warrior extraordinaire from another planet). This heroine is noble not only by birth, but by right. She repeatedly earns...more

This book was even better than the first! Jacquelyn Frank is an extremely talented author. This novel was full of suspense and an intricate story based around love, ambition, forbidden desires and secrets while in the midst of a political upheaval. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant!

Great read for those who like abit of an edge in their books. I read this books twice but i don't think i would read it a third time...well...at least not until 2014 anyway or a friend tempts me. ;)

Maybe 4 1/2? Ms Franks is usually a sold 5 for me , but, this book just didn't quite live up to her usual standard. It was good, But I missed the camaraderie between the IM members that was a big part of the fisrt 3 worlds novel. And the romance (sex) was not as steamy as expected.

Ender, Tarian, Mutant, IM soldier. Rush "Ender" is from the planet Tarie, A hard, brutal world with little in the way of resources and no luxuries. His mutant ability is discovered when he is 21 and his clan tries to k...more

This was a really good story and in fact I came out of it liking it much more than I thought I would. I’m a fan of Jacquelyn Frank and she’s on my must buy list but this book shot up to one of my favorites by her. I think it’s because it covered a number of my secret book pleasures.

Ambrea Vas Alley is a member of the royal family and is in fact the direct heir to the throne but has lost favor with the king when her mother was accused of being a traitor. When Ambrea’s father dies and her younger...more

Book 1 was a funny and entertaining read... but this one? OMG! Completely took me by surprise and blew my mind away. I never thought it would be this good!

A tiny summary:
Amazing characters and an excellent plot based on a highly appealing world building. I loved how original this story was, how different from everything else I have been reading lately.
A guy who can fire up his body at will, who has powers even he doesn't completely understands himself... a secret so well kept that not even his...more

I am always amazed at Franks imagination. Over and over she creates new worlds for her series. This is the second in the Three Worlds series, and not really my favorite. I was not sucked into it like the first. I did like it. I love Rush and Ambrea. But the back story of the Allay society dragged for me and I found myself skimming parts of the book with no dialogue towards the end. At first, I was anxious to get to the action I knew was coming. And Rush "Ender" was a character that intrigued me...more

Rush "Ender" Blakely is a man with a fiery secret in his past from everyone he knows. Ambrea Vas Allay is a princess in exile thanks to her father and uncle. Ambrea is summoned to Blossom Palace but she isn't even sure why. She gets some stunning news about her father, the Emperor of Allay from her half brother that their father is dead. He wants her to sign away her right to the throne of Allay which she refuses to do. Ambrea is jailed in the wet rooms with no hope of ever getting out. Ender is...more

Who doesn’t like a tragic hero story??? This book has it in spades. We have the hero, Rush, who is hiding a deep, dark secret from his team. We met that team in Seduce Me in Dreams and they essentially his family. Rush’s secret is that he is pyrokinectic which means that he can burst things into flames and he can’t control his power. Like all tragic heroes, he tries to just not use this talent which is why when he gets very emotional – POOF – his talent surfaces and has a tendency to explode the...more

3.5 Stars

This book took me by surprise. First, it doesn't really follow in the storyline of book 1 that much; yes it could pretty much be read as a standalone. Second, we don't the see much of the Chosen, which were a big part of the first book.

Rush "Ender" is HOT! I mean, literally. He's kept quiet about his mysterious power of burning this, his body overheats, he causes fires, he burns things and people. He's lived his whole life isolated because of th...more

3 3/4 stars. A Three Worlds Novel, sequel to "Seduce Me in Dreams".

The last true heir, Ambrea has been downtrodden over all of her life, partly because of the machinations of her ambitious uncle.

Since the age of 4, when she was ripped from her mother’s arms and the pampered life of a royal princess, Ambrea Vas Allay was never sure whether her father the Emperor would pick today as the day to end her existence. When she is called to the palace for a royal audience, she is unsure what to expect, but it was not to find out her father had died and that her adolescent half brother is now the Emperor. Thrown in prison for her refusal to sign away her name and all claims to the thrown, her in...more

I would like to preface this with; I have been a dedicated fan of Jacquelyn Frank for the past 5 years. That being said, I am having a hard time connecting with any of her recent books. I find myself skimming and growing bored. It feels like she doesn't have a clear path when writing new books and is just trying out new concepts. It doesn't feel like she is dedicated to the characters or the stories. She will write a couple books (or just stand alone titles)for a series and then move on. This se...more

Normally I don't really like when people offer to lend me books, but I really enjoyed this one. An exiled princess finally has an opportunity to reclaim her rightful place on the throne of her kingdom, with the help of a seeming barbarian soldier and an international police force meant to keep peace and fairness amongst the various worlds.
I felt there was a healthy mix of suspense and romance, and the characters truly seemed to have Well rounded personalities. However, the ending was a bit rush...more
Lizzie
I really like the premise, plot of this series. I like the science fiction feel to this, with a bit more supernatural flair. I almost expected to see a shapeshifter or two. The action kept me interested the whole way through. But as with book 1, there was too much thinking and inner monolugue. I hate to admit it, but I skimmed through most of that. All in all, I enjoyed the this book. Oh and I seriously thought it was Suna.
Avid Reader Amy's Reviews
as a fan of Mrs Frank's Nightwalker series I had to read her other works. I believe she has out did herself once again. This was a great book. Some of her work reminds me of fairy tales. Like Stealing Kathryn reminded me of Beauty and the Beast. This book reminded me of Rapunzel. Long haired beauty trapped away in a dungeon. Saved by the handsome hunter. So she can claim the title that is rightfully hers. Fairy tales are beautiful stories that can be told in every generation. I love how she can...more

Not a bad follow up to a book I thought was mediocre at best. In fact, this sequel was good enough that I'm looking forward to the next in the series. Here's hoping that Frank only gets better with time and practice! She still has problems with having too many narrative characters, but that didn't come into play as much this time around since there seemed to be fewer characters overall. Ender was a better hero than any other of Frank's I've read so far. He balanced perfectly between understandin...more

Sick of Vampires and Demons? How about taking a ride to a galaxy far far away..... where a disposed Princess attempts to reclaim her throne with the help of a hunk from the Interplanetary Military Special Ops?

There's the dastardly Uncle and his poisonous mistress using every trick in the book to ascend to the throne and the hero's secret powers that will eventually save the day.

I really enjoyed Jacquelyn Frank's new Three Worlds series. In this second book, the Three Worlds are further explored...more

This is an adventure from the first page. It takes you along with Ambrea, "Ender" and the Interplanetary Militia while they are trying to restore Ambrea to her rightful place on the throne of Allay.
Ambrea Vas Allay has been exiled by her father for many years, but upon his death and the ddeath of her brother the throne rightfully belongs to Ambrea. Her fathers brother seems to have other ideas about who should rule.

Rush "Ender" loves being part of the elite Interplanetary Militia and this time t...more

Started off really good but then it became predictable and a tale with the typical cutthroat politics in a court.
Borderstar
This was quite a nice story, but it was quite slow to start off with a lot of explaining done about the background of the main female lead. I also found it a little strange that some if the language and actions seemed quite old-fashioned while some were very modern as if it was a mix of historical romance and futuristic! I dont know if perhaps this was the intention but it made it feel a bit inconsistent and meant I didn't get 'into' the story as much as I would have liked.

It was quite entertain...more
