DNF at 52%. Just not my kind of romance.

(view spoiler)
This is weirdly well-done. I shouldn't even say "weirdly". Who's to say a sci-fi romance about a virgin making her way through an alien jungle with Riddick from Pitch Black can't be good?

The plot is pretty straight-forward. What I found surprisingly impressive here is that at every moment where a mediocre author would have had the heroine make some stupid decision for unclear reasons, this author did not. You know that thing in many, many romances where the alpha male hero tells the heroine "Do

Explosive sexual excitement -- demure heroine -- classic science fiction adventure -- it's all good!

This book really changed my mind about the quality of erotic fiction on the internet. I thought it was all nasty, sleazy stuff about evil people doing bad things. (Read OFFICE SLAVE by JW McKenna for a perfect example of what I mean.) But PLANET X is different. The heroine in this story is so innocent and sweet she could really be Audrey Hepburn -- if Audrey made movies like BARBARELLA.

Wow, what a surprise this book was. I had seen a review from a Goodfriend about this book that sounded interesting and ended up starting it directly afterwards. So glad I did.

Krisa is a bride to be bought by an older man when she was 13 but not given to him until after all her training on being a good and submissive wife is done. On the way to her fiancee she sees Teague a prisoner being returned to prison after he escaped. Their space ship crashes, he takes her with him to keep him safe and th

Have you ever watched the movies Pitch Black or The Chronicles of Riddick starring Vin Diesel?

This book has been sitting on my Kindle 4ever, and with a super-busy week, I needed a read that reliably wouldn't use much brainpower. Well, I got that right. I had forgotten how annoying I find Anderson's dumb but well-endowed heroines with the innocent and naive schtick. Even Anderson's trademark dirty talk erotica didn't resonate; she has written better. Planet X did live up to its name, though, with the uninhibited natives.

What saves this book is the changing environments
Very good book. The first I read from Evangeline Anderson, and it gives me the envy to read more of her novels.

In this book, we can follow the heroin who grow and take another dimension in her behavior.
The story begin with a kind of little girl and finish with a woman.

I didn't expected the end... happy ending but strange one... I cry when I read the last chapter.
Krisa Elysion boards the ship that will take her to her husband-to-be when she sees the dangerous prisoner, Kurt Teague, who has her intrigued. She was sold to her future husband when she was 13 years old and spent years in training to please him. Soon she will be wed and a virtual prisoner but she can't help wondering about the prisoner. When the ship crashes she sets out with the prisoner to find help.

A spicy but entertaining read. The spice almost overpowered the story but there was a story t

I was a little disappointed in this one. Was really hoping to like it better than I did. I had a problem feeling a connection between the H/h, Teague and Krisa.

Teague is a convict who was being transported on the same ship that Krisa was on, who was heading to her future husband's planet. The ship crashlanded on Planet X, a jungle planet inhabited by cannibals and very intelligent wildlife.

While waiting to be rescued, they encounter dangerous wildlife and cannibals as they are making their way

3/5; 3 stars; B

I'm glad one of my Goodreads friends recommended this book because I had pretty much written off this author. This book had some space adventure, some humour, and a fairly slow developing romantic thread (slow for sci-fi romantica).

Usually Anderson's heroines annoy me because they dither and tend toward TSTL but this one half a brain. Awesome!
I’m almost a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this simple and straightforward tale of innocent virginal girl and bad boy hook up. There’s nothing profound about it, and it has the usual Evangeline-campiness to it, but the characterization worked for me.

Krisa is a young woman on a journey to meet her betrothed on another planet. Unfortunately for the very young and beautiful Krisa, though he’s rich and powerful, he’s also quite old and not exactly the nicest guy. Certificate of virginity in

This was a very good story. I really liked Krisa and Teague and the plot was pretty good and kept things interesting.

Krisa was raised in in a secluded boarding school and is off her home world for the first time. She's on her way to meet her future husband, Lord Radisson. When boarding the space transport she encounters a man unlike anyone she's ever met. A feral man named Teague who is dangerous but stirs her curiosity and interest.

It wasn't bad, but I wasn't wow'd by it either. It just didn't get my gears spinning. There wasn't anything really wrong with it. I think it was because of how it felt like a historical romance wrapped in a scifi shell (there is probably a better word for this but it's escaping me at the moment). All the time and effort spent on setting the image of proper dress, decorum, company, or speech, it wasn't what usually draws me into the story and holds me as a scifi fan.

This was another great book from Evangeline Anderson and longer than her usual stories. She is the queen of sci-fi erotica. The alien world she creates are so original as are the creatures/ kinda feel like you're right there along side Teague and Krisa. He's so sexy and has such a dirty mouth. It's too bad that it took so long for Krisa to clue in...she is innocent to a fault. There was so much buildup that I was a little disapointed with the speedy ending...need more details.

Read this a while ago so my review won't be very detailed. But first of all—oh wow. OH HOT DAMN; I loved this book! This was my first time reading an erotica with sci-fi elements incorporated and what a nice change! The plot was interesting and engaging and this book wasn't focused solely on sex which I quite liked. Teague was a sexy beast. 'Nuff said on that. ;) I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be looking forward to read Anderson's other books.
WTH? What kind of an ending was that?! Hmmmph.

My real rating is a 3.5 out of 5 but I rounded up so the book wouldn't be bumped down. It's a very good book, if not a little typical for it's genre. I would have enjoyed if the author had been a bit more elaborate in the science fiction portion of the novel. Their world building was just a tad too bland for my tastes, but then I have been spoiled by some exceptional authors so I didn't let that affect my review too much.

Krisa comes from "Bride Planet" and has been taught since the age of 12 to be the perfect wife. She is bought and paid for by a very rich old man on another distant planet since she was 13, but has had to wait eight years to make the journey to see him. On her way there, she meets Teague - a blindfolded prisoner who she is led to believe is a callous murderer.

Not my usual type of read, so I'm a bit unsure how to rate this. I wonder if all books in this genre are so corny, because the plot to this was exceptionally corny.

Krisa has been bred off a planet noted for churning out Stepford wives who will never cheat. On board a luxury ship bound for her husband by contract's planet, she meets an alien convict who's bound and blindfolded in the cargo space. (Really?

This is a stand-alone novel with nothing to do with the Kindred series, but it is definitely a different kind of mail-order bridal service. If you have the money and prestige, you can handpick your mate when she's barely a teen, have her be whisked away to an academy where she is taught all the skills and etiquette the wife marrying into the über-zero-point-one-percenters.

Yes, sometimes I'm in the mood for a 'fugitive alien fleeing through jungle with a virgin mail order bride' erotica book. Sue me.

Usually I can rate books like these based on pure enjoyment factor, but this one just made me want to scream. A lot.

The heroine was probably one of the most annoying and indecisive characters I've ever read, and the alien literally had no personality. Also, when I read futuristic/survival erotica,
LOLLOL - I did a search for a SciFi erotic romance with the word 'planet' in the title. This book's blurb sounds so crazy and hilarious I have to try to read it! I wonder if the author challenged herself to put as many romance themes in one book! Historical dukes and titles- check, virgin heroine-check, SciFi-check, paranormal- check, spaceship- check!!!!

OK, Planet X was one of my earlier Ellora's Cave reads way back when (hysterically by accident; see "spoiler") so it holds a special place in my, uh... heart (yeah, that's it).

But seriously, I've re-read this several times over the years which is very unusual for me. I generally don't care for the young, virginal heroine who, for whatever reason, is helpless and at the mercy of everyone else. But it works well in this story and serves to augment Teague's protectiveness. Plus, Evangeline Anderson

What an amazing story Evangeline Anderson wrote. Planet X was an intense high energy love story with twists and turns that lead Krisa and Teague through a jungle with animals after them, with natives, even slave traders and even a mind wipe.

Teague knows that he's found his mate (Krisa) from the moment he smells her on ship. Even blindfolded he knew she was the one. Unfortunately he's a man with a price on his head and so a life on the run isn't a life he want's for them. He fights his urges to m

Wow! I unexpectedly liked this one! The plot was unique and the characters and settings were amusingly outrageous and out of this world (lol!) .

I loved Teague (really-he was a very strong male lead!) and Krisa was OK.
The ending disappointed since i really expected more - (view spoiler)

Anyways - i liked the book - it was a refreshing read!
