It grabbed my attention right away and I found myself really connecting with the heroine, Maggie. Maggie hasn't had much luck in her sex life or with men in general. Her choice in the matter is taken away when she's abducted by aliens and given to a prisoner alien named Raharan to keep him happy. He uses her for his pleasure, but he takes care of her needs as well. She learns to be Raharan's submissive and embraces it, falling in love with him along the way. He's dominant but sweet, and I really liked Raharan as a hero. The ending is intense and we see a huge contrast in character between Raharan and another alien who tries to claim Maggie. I was really rooting for Maggie and Raharan's happy ending. If you like sci fi romance and don't mind a little kidnapping, mild bdsm, and HOT sex scenes, give this book a try!...more

I loved the author's blunt style of writing and twisted sense of humor, and the scenes between the half-angel Rose and the half-demon Skriker were wicked hot. They have a forbidden love and apparently met when Rose was trying to kill Skriker two years before this novel takes place. Demon's Slave details three days Rose spends as Skriker's slave as a birthday to him, but each day isn't the same and it never gets boring. I really enjoyed the chemistry between these characters (their love is obsessive crazy) and the intense bdsm scenes they shared. If you're looking for something a little different, give this one a try....more

It was an enjoyable read, and I wish it had been longer! I loved the tension between Charity and Melmanon. Melmanon (the demon) is one of the alien invaders who have conquered Earth, causing Charity to lose all her friends and family. Outraged that she has evaded him for several days, Melmanon decides to keep her as a torture slave after he finally captures her. Charity's will to live is strong, so she does her best to please her new master, but she is tormented by the knowledge that she is betraying her people by finding pleasure with her demon. Melmanon loves her submissiveness because it is unlike anything he's experienced before. Charity is surprised by how gentle he treats her initially, because aside from some very rough sex, he hasn't really hurt her - yet. When she catches a glimpse of humans working in a farm field, her master reads her thoughts and becomes outraged that she would think about the possibility of having a human husband and child one day. He punishes her severely, but he later comes to regret his actions and nurses her back to health. Melmanon slowly realizes his love for Charity and decides to retire and make her his wife. Charity has no say in anything that happens to her in this story, so if BDSM without consent and safe words bothers you, you might want to avoid this story. I've seen a few reviews comparing Demon's Captive to a bodice ripper, and I think that's a pretty accurate description. And don't worry, no bodice ripper (even one that involves aliens and takes place in the future) would be complete without an HEA.
*On a side note, the kinky dork in me kept comparing the alien invaders to Klingons because of their warlike race, bloodlust, and tradition of battling someone to have sex with them. If you're a trekkie, then you know what I mean. And if you're a trekkie who enjoys a good D/s story, then you might have found heaven....more
