I was captivated by the blurb and so was eager to read this Sci-Fi Romance about a woman bounty hunter, her quarry that declares he is not what she has been told, and a survival adventure full of intrigue and passion. It's been a while since I picked up a Sci-Fi Romance and I had never read this author's work so I was ready for an engaging read and I got it.

The story opens with Bounty Hunter Gemmina Nayar responding to a request for her services from the enigmatic and reclusive wealthy businessm

Given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

The original book was released a little over a year ago. This newer version was just released a couple months ago. It was expanded a little I guess.

This was a little on the strange side. The stuff about Jason Naveen was really odd. I love sci-fi romance. I even love quirky and strange ones. I think this would have been way better if it was a novel and had more background information about his character and explain things a bit better. We got in

Agent Gemmina Nayar is a “retrieval specialist” whose mission turns lethal when she realizes not only was she tricked into bringing the wrong man to justice but a single kiss or bite from Syan is sabotage in this thrilling sci-fi romance.

With a fast paced and smooth flowing plot, this romance keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, excitement and passion. Gemmina is a bounty hunter and eager for the hunt, but she gets more than she bargained for when she arrives to acquire Syan and th

Wow, I did not know what to expect from this book. But straight from the start i was drawn into it, could not put it down.
Gemmina is a bounty hunter who was called and help 'hunt' a criminal. She is the best at her job. But not everything is as it should be. She was tricked. She meets Syan who is kept against his will at an artificially created planet. One thing leads to another (don't want to give too much away) and they end up running for their li

I received this book in exchange for an honest review and I have to say it didn't go how I thought it was going to. Gemmina is a bounty hunter and is good at what she does. When she is called to bring a man to justice she jumps at the chance. However when the deceptions come to light she will do anything to make sure the truth is found.

Syan is a leader who wants to protect those around him. Add in Gemmina just may be his fated mate. Nothing will stop him to protect her even though she has no re

Written For Confessions From Romaholics


As usual with Katalina Leon, once you start a book you won’t stop until the very last page. Once again she delivers a beautifully written story, with a mix of elements of action and romance, all packed into an amazing scifi romance. It’s the story of two people on different missions who must work together in a forsaken realm, fighting for their lives with danger lurking at every corner.

Another fabulous book that takes the reader away from boring everyday reality and spices things up in Ms Leon's inimitable style. This author always seems to bring fast paced plots filled with heart stopping romance and humour to boot in her work and although I'm a relatively new reader of hers I was very excited when I saw this the first of her new series that takes the action up into space . Featuring one hell of a kick ass heroine who is more than capable of giving the bad guys the run around ...more

He seeks justice for those unable to defend themselves. They will fight to bring the wrong doers to justice while fighting for their lives.

Forsaken Realms is Book 1 in Katalina Leon's Bounty Hunters United series.

This was a unique take on a bounty hunter story as it throws in sci-fi, interplanetary and futuristic elements.

Gemmina is great as the strong leading female character and we get to see her become more vulnerable less controlled. Syan was also a great and intriguing character. He is the bounty that Gemmina has been commissioned to collect and send to prison. Only it turns out that Syan can communicate telepathically with G

Bounty hunter Gemmina Nayar is called to recluse millionaire Jason Naveen's lab/planet to pick up fugitive Syan and deliver him to X57 Penal Colony. She takes custody of him but learns that not everything is on the up-and-up. Now what does she do?

I liked this story. At first it is somber but then it picks up with Katalina Leon's sly brand of humor. This was not a laugh out loud read but one where I smiled and chuckled to myself often as I could imagine Gemmina and Syan interplay very vividly. Sh

Syan is a Kironian and as a new found race off limits in every way.
When a very rich man sends for Gemmina to get a criminal off his world and would pay her 3X the normal free she doesn't think twice.
When she gets there well things don't go as planned and the criminal is a Kironian. She is not suppose to even talk to them let alone a rest one. Things are so not adding up. What to do now?

My first read from this author, and an scintillating read. Gemmina is a bounty hunter directed to planet X57 to pick up a bounty. While there she meets trillionaire Jason Naveen who holds bounty Syan. Syan is wearing a silence collar as he boards Gemmina's ship, but there he gives her a mating bite that binds them. The ship crashes and from there they run for their lives. The couple has decent chemistry, and help each other

This was a fast paced suspenseful story filled with passion and romance to boot. Gemmina is basically a bounty hunter mistakenly sent to retrieve Syan who can change everything with just a bite. And bite he does. Which means that they both have to fight the effects of the bite as they make a run for it in the jungle. They will have to work together to discover the truth as Gemmina struggles with becoming Syan's mate. I really enjoyed their story, but have to admit that I wish it was a bit longer ...more

This book is about a female retrieval specialist (Bounty Hunter) named Gemmina and she finds herself falling for her capture who is a man not from Earth as he is from Kironian. There are many twists and turns in this short sweet novella. Looking forward to reading the next book in this series. I was given a free copy in a exchange for a honest review.

What an enjoyable read. Forsaken Realms combines the best of sci-fi with erotic romance: great world building and creativity that transports the reader to another place and likable characters--a sexy, hunky hero and a kick-ass heroine. Loved the use of the language, the little sci-fi details, and especially the ending (what happened to Jason Naveen).

4.3 rating ...Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I'm taken in by the characters, bad guys who come off as the good guys and the subtlety of what transpires around them. I smiled through the whole book at the characters demeanor on both parts. It doesn't get any more real than this sometimes. Good read a little short but still enjoyable. Free for honest review.

Sci-fi

My first book by Katalina, I normally read contemporary romance. I wanted something different. I got it I loved Gemmina et Syan the beginning of there story. It had suspense et drama. It still referenced Earth in the future. I was glad for that. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly.
Definitely a 5 star read.

Good read

Forsaken Realms: Bounty Hunters United was a good read. I do wish there were more details. I think that the pace of the book was kind of fast. She met syan then automatically fell in love with him after the bite..maybe a little more challenge in fighting it then coming together..Overall it was a good read.

Weird, but Good

It started out slow and hard to understand, but as I continued, the book became an outstanding story. The main characters were great and it was the first time I have ever read in how they became soul mates.

Katalina Leon is an artist and author who can’t commit to a single genre. Her favorite playgrounds are historical, Sci-fi, contemporary, and most of all paranormal realms. Katalina brings a sense of adventure and a touch of the mystical to erotic romance. She believes there's a daring heroine inside every woman who wants to take a wild ride with a strong worthy hero.
