Didn't like the h and there was not really a story. It started not to bad, but the rest was ... I don't know. As I said, there was not really a story. It was boring and at the end I skipped the pages to finish it.

I started reading the second book in this series Moonlight Over Water and was feeling confused about the history of the alien crossbreeding. I figured since this was the first book in the series I'd give it a try in hopes of getting some clarification. It was an okay read. I found myself skimming through a lot of the sex scenes. I love a steamy read but there's just so much sex you can read in a 50 page short story. At least I got the better understanding about the whole alien crossbreeding and ...more

Recommends it for: anyone over 18 that love Science Fiction Romance!
OK, let me say I love Ms. Hill's "Horsemen" series so I have read other books by her! I enjoyed this short story (took me about an hour and a half to read) and be warned that this story is HOT (set your panties on fire HOT) so if you don't like that kind of read don't pick it up!

Even with all the HOT parts of the story there was a pretty good story line and I will be checking out the other books in this series by Kate Hill.

This short novel knocked me off my feet. It was short but had all components of sweetness, romance, a broken warrior and erotica.

Ross: He needed someone to believe in him even if he didn't realise that. He was beautiful. Ok he was steamy smothered in hotness and smothered in do-me-now sauce!

Thyme: She knew what she wanted and went for it. Her career be damned, one man was worth losing it all over.

Loved this read. It's a short read so why not just get it and read it for yourself?

I like sexy sci-fi and I really feel like I should have liked this story a whole lot more than I did but... it didn't quite work for me. I honestly couldn't figure out how Thyme justified that stalking Ross and following him to a different planet wasn't a teeny, tiny bit beyond the realm of what normal people do. The sex was nice, don't get me wrong, I just couldn't get past her actions. Still... sexy sci-fi. Yay!

This book was a free Kindle download I picked up 10/29/12 for the Why Buy the Cow?
Brutally Honest
A short and sweet story. Maybe just one sex scene too many, but other than that it was good.

I truly loved this book. I believe that he just needed someone to believe in him like Thyme did.

I would love to be the only two people on a planet. It might get a little boring but I could do whatever I wanted. I loved the way the book was written and how the story went.

Doing Thyme by Kate Hill
2 1/2 stars really. It started out good but the story and characters were uneven.
