The alien, Lucifer, didn't just bear an uncanny resemblance, and the name, of the demon of ancient lore, everything about him -- from his wings and horns, to the red skin and his "forked" tail, to his ability to "enthrall" -- screamed that the legends arose from this people who has to have visited Earth in their distant past!
It made Nicole wary -- but not nearly wary enoug

Lucifer has traveled to Earth, seeking help for his planet, and to warn us of the plague that is traveling our way. His dark red skin, wings, horns and forked tail were a bit much for Earthlings, so needless to say we captured Lucifer and threw him into a lab to be tortured and studied.


There is one scientist that catches Lucifer's eye. His desire for her is so strong, she must be his mate. But how can he can he ever be with her? He needs to escape Earth, and find

Definitely a noncon book. The males of this species have a kiss and venom that literally stupifies a female/can control their arousal. This was used categorically to silence, stupify, manipulate and kidnap the two heroines.
Heroines also not that palatable one wanted to fight everything even herself while the other one was the queen of the shrinking violets.

This book is the prequel to When the Night Falls by Kaitlyn O'Connor. It is about Luciens father Lucifer. This is my second book by this author, and once again she is becoming a fast favorite author of mine. I am looking forward to reading her other books and I hope she continues this series, because she leaves some stones unturned.
Lucifer has been captured and held hostage by the American Government. He is tired of being stuck with needles and studied like some freak of nature. No one believes

This one has parallel worlds instead of space travel.

Nicole is a scientist who has been hired to study Luc, a traveler from another world who had come to warn them of a plague that is making it's way through the worlds and instead is captured and experimented on to eventually be destroyed. Nicole feels bad for him but doesn't do shit to save him. He hates her but is still attracted to her, which we find out about later. I really wanted to keep hating Nicole, but I just couldn't keep it up.

As far as characters go, I'm - for once - happy with running into a cowardly one. I know that, basically, your average heroine should be strong and confident but it really does get old after some 50 books of the same constitution. On the other hand, Lucifer somewhat covered for what Nicole lacked and I'm fine with that.

Plot-wise: it was a bit slow-moving but I suppose it couldn't be avoided. Perhaps a bit less inner-psychology would have made me more content but I'm good with as-is.

I'm happy that I read the book after the second one... it's better !

Good story, and Lucifer is great.
Maybe there is a little too much hassle from the hero and heroin !

It didn't impress me like I hope it will. Shame...
Ridiculous cover.

I read the second one first and found that the world building didn't support each other well.

I liked that the heroine was different. I wasn't expecting a second woman, along with her POV (view spoiler). And this woman says she is friends with the h?! The emotions

This is a prequel to When Night Falls and covers Lucifer, or Luc, who is the father of Lucien, the hero in the next book.

Luc has travelled to Earth to warn them of the plague that has decimated his own planet, but is captured and chained up in a cell to be studied. One of the scientists, Nicole, seems to be sympathetic to him and is obviously reluctant to treat him as "an interesting speciman". As he studies her while she studies him, he begins to want her for his mate.

The scientists want to stu

I really enjoy Kaitlyn O'Connor, but this book annoyed me. The heroine was so blah. She was too scared to do anything. She wouldn't look at him because she felt guilty, she wouldn't help him because she was too scared he'd lead invaders to Earth, while never bothering to ask him. I found nothing compelling about her. The antiheroine Sandra was much more compelling and was much more someone I'd want at my back in a fight. I couldn't understand Lucifer's intense reaction to her at all.

Another great story by kailtyn O'Connor, loved the world she created for this one.really liked the characters, specially Lucifer, who is not your normal male protagonist, but still you gotta love him.
Dec 17, 2013 Lisa rated it it was ok
I would have liked this book much more if not the main woman drove me crazy. I was more annoyed than anything when I read this, even if it is essentially a charming history.
Summary: Easy to read, annoying main character with the abrupt ending. But quite ok story

The Kaitlyn O'Connor I prefer. Still romantic, still hot but without overdoing. Reading Lucifer's story after Lucien is somewhat weird, though :)

As usual the book cover is horrible.

But there's just one thing about Kaitlyn O'Connor's books: the covers might be terrible but the books are great!
