I got to read this book as an ARC, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

This story's set-up is at once familiar (in the best of ways) and uniquely different with some interesting new additions to the PNR genre. We've got the band of (mostly) male warriors who live and fight together, led by a noble albeit troubled king, and the dynamics between the characters and the world-building in this respect is fondly reminiscent of other well-loved PNRs like BBD, Midnight Breeds, LotU etc. Fans of these series wil
An adventure of epic proportions, this was a fantastic read! The characters are strong, rich and vivid. The scenes are so detailed you can see and hear them. The author has a way with words that will draw you in and keep you enthralled. Adventure, romance, monsters, shifters, gods and goddesses, jilted lovers, forgiveness, love and friendship......and so much more is swept up into this story. The romance is hot, Sexy, full of fiestyness, and a hard journey to happiness, and it is worth every ste ...more

Reviewer for paranormal romance and authors that rock.
I gave this book 5 fangs. It was very well written, started off a little slow with the explanation but once you got past that there was wonderful action. It reminded me a bit of the black dagger brotherhood in the sense that the Gossum make me think of Ward's lessers and the warriors fighting them are an ever dwindling number. I loved that melissa and noeh didnt just fall together and that was that, I loved her defiant I can take care of myse

It is no small feat to find a book that keeps a reader hooked, with description so vivid the reader can close their eyes and actually see the world created, going through the journey with the characters like a personal movie.

Read full review in the 2016 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.

I tried, I really tried, but I couldn't care about anyone or anything in this book.

The chemistry between Noeh and Melissa is barely there, and their back and forth is so annoying. The world building had promise but there was just so much going on I glazed over much of it, and therefore didn't care who won, who had sex with who, and who died.

I DNFed this book and I will NOT be reading the rest of this series.
I am so glad I stumbled on this one on Amazon!
I loved reading this and I definitely going to read next one!

She pulls you in with all the drama and action as well as the intrigue and hot and steamy chemistry. I was glued to the pages right to the end. I loved and highly recommend this book.

This was a great story and was very entertaining. Once I started I could not put it down. The chemistry between the hero and heroine is sizzling hot. I would recommend this to anyone that loves a great love story.

This book is sci-fi paranormal romance story. A very interesting romance story, good characters, and intriguing. It was okay for me, but someone else might be more interested in this book.

The first book in The Warriors of Lemuria series is awesome.
First a little background… the planet of Lemuria is in grave danger. The gods of the world (and the people on the surface) desperately need water, so the gods are looking at other planets to colonize. The goddess Alora found the planet Earth and wants to make peaceful contact with the people of the planet and barter for water. A rival god, Zedron, wants to enslave the planet instead. The council of the gods decide to let both Alora and

HOW HAVE I NOT FOUND THESE GLORIOUS BOOKS SOONER?? Seriously, Untouchable Lover was PERFECT! The amazing worlds, the gods, the different types of paranormals was all so stunning and descriptive. I could picture everything so clearly, like I was standing there witnessing it all face to face. I absolutely ADORED King Noeh! He is strong, protective, caring, surprisingly gentle and the way he was with Melissa left my heart clenching and my entire being just lite rig

4 stars The fate of Earth is in the balance between two rival alien Deities; who will win?
A shadow war between two alien groups for the fate of Earth includes twists and turns as is the way of war. Political and personal rivalries make defeating the enemy even harder, but love prevails as a shining beacon to heal the rift between those who should be allies and enables a new and hopefully brighter future for both. I appreciate the glossary provided so that readers can look up the Lemurian words i

I wasn't sure if I was really going to like this book when I started it. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. This book was so very good and the characters had such depth and courage. There is a war between Gods over Earth's water. Noeh is a king who is in determined to win the war and keep Earth from being enslaved. His kingdom is mainly male warriors. Melissa is a woman who has lost everything. She has gone through so much but she's still got all of her fight. She's not one to give up o ...more

This book was very good. This is about the world of Lemuria on a distant planet and the gods that live there. Their planet is in dire straights and need water of the worst kind and have found that a planet named Earth has all it needs. They set out 2 armies, one who wants to enslave the humans and just drain the water and the other who want to set up free trade and not enslave them. The team that wins will not perish. This story is about King Noeh and his goddess who instructs him he has until t ...more
Stiyaha shapeshifter King Noeh has an annoying habit of striking his ring against the hilt of his sword. I'm sure it was supposed to symbolize something, but I have no clue what. This is just one of the many actions I found annoying in Untouchable Lover. The story kept me both confused and annoyed for yet another passive/aggressive read on my part. There are so many characters and factions, I lost count and a constant back and forth to the present.

The story begins with Melissa, a Dren, and Gaeta

This book is really good. It has one group that wants to enslave earth and one that wants to stop them. A king with warriors who is told to take a mate. They rescue a woman who has lost her husband and child and has been held by a group and tortured and beaten. There is so much going on in this story that it catches your attention and you can't put it down. I loved it and can't wait to read more books. I highly recommend it. I was given a review copy by book sprout and voluntarily review it.

The first book of the series. As I read the book I found it interesting but by the end I was loving it. We slowly learn what and why these paranormal are here on Earth. It almost has a tinge if sci-fi to the whole gods and goddesses from another world. It has plenty of adventure and action. A war is being fought to either allow Earth and humans to be free or slaves to the gods of the world Lemuria. Sounds a little confusing but read it and you’ll catch on fast. The romance definitely builds to a ...more

A Very Touchable Book!

Wow! The characters of this book have a wonderful depth along with a realism that astonished. Very different from others.
The world is betting on God Alora's to win Earth from slavery, torture, and losing Earth's water.
The battles that are fought , the traders that are brought out, and a prophesy that foretells a possible futurem

This a pretty good paranormal read. It took me a while to get the lingo dow and guess what I found at the back of the book? Yep, a glossary! We need those things at the front authors! Anyway, earth is in jeopardy of being taken over by really bad aliens if the good ones don’t win the war against them. There’s and epic love story mixed in, a really bad “mean girl”, a sweet girl, a king who has lost his faith and compassion and a beautiful woman who may be able to help him find it.
