She’s hiding within herself

Kleoptoleme of the Amazons will have no man. Despite being in charge of the annual mating season, she won’t ever surrender her body—or her heart—again. Not after a great loss left her hollow inside. But her encounter with a provocative bear shifter just might change all that.

He’ll scour the earth for his mark

Kleo is in charge of the Amazon breeding ritual. Herding Amazons and those males who seek to best them in order to win the chance to lay with them and breed possible Amazons or future heirs for themselves.

But when she shoots at a bear and it promptly turns into a man, a very large, handsome man at that, Kleo returns to the safety of the Amazon enclave. But when Arctus arrives at the camp seeking aid in his family's war with King Minos and the Minotaurs, he finds himself fighting Kleo instead of

Another winner by Rachael Slate. I couldn't put this one down. Slate wove her magic to create one interesting read. I was hooked right from the beginning. I really liked Arctus and Kleo together. They had great chemistry. Loved their banter. Fate has set these two on a path, but will Kleo's past put a wrench in the plan? I love this series and I can't wait for more!

Book 2 of the lords of Krete series and has not disappointed! Full of strong characters, this storyline grabs you immediately and flies you through its tale! Fate has once again matched two people that didn't want to be mated so the journey is highly entertaining! Well written and will truly leave you wanting more!

Mating season? 5 GOLD SPEARS

Sweet gods, what madness was this? Who are you and why have you come here? I have come to request the aid of the Amazons. OH SWEET GODS, WHAT A FANTABULOUS STORY! I love, Love, LOVE EVERY SINGLE BIT of this ABSO-MYTH-LUTELY FURTASTIC story! From the moment I saw that GORGEOUS cover I knew this was going to be a perfect addition to Head Goddess Rachael's Halcyon World but at the same time, I had a feeling it was also going to be a story unlike any of the others before

Earth's Mark by Rachael Slate is Book 2 of the Lords of Krete Series which is a spin-off of the Halycyon Series. I’d recommend these be read in order as they are all interconnected.

Ooooh mah dayummmm! Each time I pick up one of Ms. Slate’s stories, I am instantly transported into another world that is so vivid and breathtaking. Earth’s Mark is the story of Kleoptoleme of the Amazons and Lord Arctus of Krete and with a wicked twist on Greek mythology, Ms. Slate brings her tales to life. The fact

Exciting Story from this skillfully crafted series!!

What could be better than an Amazon warrior, who can be bested by no man? Perhaps Lord Arctus of Krete who can turn into a Bear or a Centaur at will. Arctus is seeking assistance from the Amazons to reclaim his lands from King Minos. The gods interfere in the altercations between lovers and foes alike, stealing powers and arranging outcomes to their desires.

Strength and fortitude is required of our hero and heroine as they battle external

Book 2 of The Lord's Of Krete series was amazing! The story grabs hold of you and doesn't let up. Full of action and surprises. This is the story of Arctus and Kleo.

Someone seems to have forgotten to tell fate they don't agree with the mating. Through all their struggles Arctus and Kleo learn to trust one another. Their ...more

The best story your ears will ever see!

Arctus and Kleo are both great warriors. Kleo is an Amazon huntress. Arctus is on a mission to recruit warriors to save his people. Only he shows up to the Amazonian encampment as their mating season is commencing. Will the battles of the heart rival his war-stricken homeland? This is an amazing tale. It is part of a series and although satisfying alone is best read sequentially with the others in its series. Rachael Slate really knows how to make the

Earth's Mark by Rachel Slate is book #2 in the Lords of Krete series. This series connects and should really be read in order to get the full story. Arctus and Kleo make a good couple with great chemistry. Arctus is looking to find an army to overthrow King Minos. This leads him to the Amazons and Kleo. Neither one of these characters is looking or even wants to find love but fate and love will have their way. Can their new found love survive the obstacles in their path. A short but entertaining ...more

Another enchanting story exploring the mythical and the paranormal. The plot line is well defined, build whilst entwined with a captivating love story. The characters continue to mature and develop as well as the intrigue through the story having a spell-bound effect on the reader.
A perfect series for those who like to overstep boundaries of the imagination, clique PNR books or mythical tales.
I voluntarily reviewed for the arc team.

This is a great love story between two strong characters. Although, in this case, the man has the soft heart that is willing to bend. He does this for his people, and for the woman that he is falling in love with. He will have to overcome many obstacles, but the greatest one will be Kleo's heart. This book is well written and fits well within the series.

This is a good book. An interesting take on Amazon's and how they mate so to speak. It has a little action and some magic. Good story line and strong characters. So grab your copy and enjoy reading.

Fast paced and full of emotion I love the world that Rachael Slate takes us to in Earth's Mark. This Author is constantly upping the bar on shifter stories creating new and unusual creatures. I have loved the first 2 books in this series and look forward to more

Another unique matched couple. Such a beautiful story of two strong beings coming together and finding love. I look forward to reading the next story.

Kleo and Arctus are both independent and stubborn, but they form two halves of a coin and work well as one mind.
I absolutely loved this story. It was adventurous and sweet, with a side of emotion. There was a lot of push and pull, but I loved this HEA.
I can't wait to read the next installment of this series, especially with the glimpse I was able to see at the end of this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book

After reading the first book in this series I was dying to read this one!
There is one thing that this author definitely aces at and that is writing about the heroines in her books as strong independent women who know their own minds and who they are. I think that's one of the reasons I love her books so much is the fact that women don't need any man to protect them, they can protect themselves. I think too many women don't feel strong
