I was almost afraid to read this one, seeing how I gave mixed ratings to the previous books, but I was pleasantly surprised!

Both Kayde and Quinn were very likable charcaters who didn't fight too long their attraction!

First Kayde couldn't believe that he has found his denya, but mistook his budding sensations for going mad because of soul-lessness. But when he became aware of his good fortune, he was so sweet and tender!

Quinn, on the othe hand, had some really horrific experences as slave and

I had myself all braced for a whole bunch of unrequited drama, hah I should have trusted KR, Kayde may be soulless but he’s a good male. I think this is my favorite in the series so far. The journey both Kayde and Quinn took to get where they needed to be was heart warming.

The great plot was well written and the characters were so well developed that as I turned each page the chemistry between the characters kept me totally hooked until the very last page!

The rescued women sat at a table drinking and talking. Quinn still isn’t over what happened to her and has nightmares about her experience. She kept having a feeling she was being watched and, when she went toward the bathrooms, she heard the back door open and followed outside. A figure in black blended into the crowd. She called out “Kayde” but he didn’t stop so she went back inside.

Kayde NaDetya has no expectations of finding his denya (mate), yet he feels obsessively compelled to watch

This is the third story in the Detyen Warriors series. It could be read as a stand-alone story, but it does refer to the first story, Soulless. I think the world-building and character building was outstanding. The basics of the series is that an alien race, the Detyen, are a humanoid race that only live to the age of 30, unless they find their mate, and then they die. There is another option in that they can have their soul taken. It basicly leaves them emotionless. That way they can fight/live ...more

Not Heartless - heart-stopping, heart-warming and HOT

This is a voluntary, independent, and uncompensated review of an ARC - my thanks to the author. Being a lover of all things Detyen, I expected to like Heartless. I LOVED it. I cheered for Quinn, the woman who survived Oscavian slavers and never, ever gives up - not on survival, or healing, or her desire to live a full life, or on Kayde. Quinn is no broken victim - she's battered but badass and every bit Kayde's spiritual equal. I cried for

Fated to be mates, with the will to survive!

This is the third book in the series and Quinn has found herself trapped on the Deyten spaceship on a mission to the Deyten HQ. The ship was not expected to leave when she crept aboard and now she is trapped with Kayde, the deyten who has been following her around, watching her for the past three months. Angry as she had been when he refused to return her, she finally calmed down and they developed a relationship which was part friendship

This is part of a series that I am really enjoying the issue with this series however is the fact it is other sub series within the main series. The other sub series is not the best so to me this book could have been a hit or miss. Luckily it was a hit. I have always loved a hero in which most people tend to be scared of at no fault to himself. There is something about a hero who has been looked upon as flawed or looked upon as unstable that has always drawn to me.

Kayde is that male.

This author's stories are amazing! I am so glad that Kayde got his happy ever after. I have loved each and every Detyen I have read about but Kayde was the one who most broke my heart.
Kayde believes that he is showing obsessive behavior toward one of the rescued women. He follows Quinn around and thinks about her all the time. He decides that he needs to get away from her. So he goes on a mission to find out what happened to the Detyens and the place he had called home. He accepts that their

Quinn and Kayde each have something they are struggling with; Kayde is someone still learning how to normally interact with others after living years as a soulless, and Quinn is recovering from extreme trauma and assault. And unlike the cliche so many books resort to of "love cures all," love doesn't cure the past for these characters; rather it is a catalyst to encourage them to continue to overcome, and they support each other in the process. Quinn can't just jump into bed with Kayde after ...more

Poor Kayde. He instigates a risky mission back to recon HQ as he fears his obsession with one of the survivors he helped rescue means that he is tipping into madness.

Quinn is far from being over her abduction and abuse at the hands of the Oscavians and their allies. However, she has a soft spot for one of the other survivors and returns to the ship they wee rescued on to grab a memento for her. But a nap has never led her into such a precarious position before. Now she is blasting through space

2 months ago Quinn , Muir, CJ, Valerie, Davy, and Laurel had been saved from slavers but a mind control chip was put into Laurel's head and Valerie left her behind so she never made it back to earth with others.
Kayde is a Denyen and part of the team that saves them. He is also past his time to find a denya (mate) and would have died on this 30th birthday. So he let the Detyen legion remove his soul and he became a souless. But then he meets Quinn
Now he is on a mission

Heartless was not that at all! This is Quinn and Kayde’s story. I love how Quinn is a fighter and not ready to give up. She is slightly broken, but she doesn’t let that stop her. Kayde is broken but only realizes to the extent that he doesn’t want something worse to come of it. The trials that both of them have to go through together and alone, show their strength. I enjoyed that they love story took them off of earth and back again.

Heartless was not a quick speed read for me. There was just

This is Quinn and Kayde’s story. I love how both characters are broken and in each other they heal. It doesn’t happen instantly but grows over time. Quinn was abducted by slaver traders and saved by a group of warriors. Kayde is one the Datyen warriors (warriors who give up their souls) who saved Quinn. This book and a lot of chemistry between the two. I loved how patient Kayde was to Quinn and would do anything to save her. I loved how the author just did not do a quick fix and that both ...more

Quinn is still trying to cope with what happened to her. She is still having nightmares, not surprising. Though the feeling of being watched does not help....
Kayde does not expect to find his Denya (mate), yet he is compelled to watch over Quinn and follow her everywhere. He had his soul removed to live longer, so how come he has feelings? Kayde concludes that he must be going mad. He leaves on a dangerous mission to get away and lo and behold, guess who followed him? His madness (Quinn).......

I liked the premise behind this story. Emotionally defunct warrior finds love and learns to live again. Abuse victim falls in love and learns to be strong. It was good. The gladiator battle/solstice queen part started out good, then kinda dropped off. I wanted it a little more developed. I loved the fact that the girl didn't fall in love and all her trauma just goes away. It was more real that she had to work through her hangups and learn to cope, it doesnt magically get better right away. A few ...more

Kayde, thinking something was going wrong with being soulless, decides to go see what happened to the Detyan HQ.
He also wants to get away from Quinn.

Quinn heads to the ship that was used to rescue her and other women from slavers. She was getting a little piece of the ship for a woman who was rescued. She ends up falling asleep and then wakes up when Kayde flies the ship off.

Lots of action, romance and love making. Can't wait to read more of this series.

I loved Kayde and Quinn! Another great installment to the Detyan Warrior series. This story was chock full of dangerous adventure, and these two characters were wonderful. Quinn had a very traumatic experience before she met Kayde that makes the whole fated mates thing very difficult; how do you allow yourself to get close to someone when your terrifying past is stuck in the forefront of your mind almost constantly. She’s a super strong woman, but she has a lot to process! I loved how patient ...more

Kayde gave up his soul for the better of his species. He doesn't feel things like others do. When he meets Quinn he starts to feel things again and is confused by them. Quinn has been through a lot with being kidnapped by aliens and raped and generally abused. She has started to make friends with the other women that were kidnapped and also with the aliens that rescued them. Quinn and Kayde accidently end up on a ship together going on a mission. Their Adventure begins. A great story.

This is a really good story! Full of action, suspense, danger, pain and steam! I really love the main characters! Quinn and Kayde are so great! The heat is off the charts between these two! Although this is book 3 in the series it can be read as a stand alone read. The author does a good job with back history so you don't feel like you missed anything. However, it does make you want to back and read the first two as well as jump on the next story, "Fautless", to see what next in store for the ...more

Quinn kept having a feeling she was being watched and, when she went toward the bathrooms she saw kayde. Kayde had no expectations of finding his denya , yet he feels obsessively compelled to watch Quinn and follow her everywhere.

Wow! Talk about excitement. This is the third in series of Detyen warriors who voluntarily became “soulless” in order to extend their lives past 30 for a few extra years to continue fighting the enemy. Here we meet Quinn and Kayde. Due to Quinn’s experience with slavers, she feels broken. It is only Kayde’s patience with her, once he recognizes her as his mate, that gives her hope of becoming “normal”. But nothing is ever easy and there’s a lot of fighting to get through before they may even ...more

Third book in the Detyen series. Kayde is a warrior and has given up his soul in the hopes of extending his life and to be able to protect his race. By giving up his soul he will bypass the curse of death at 30 years but he losses so much more. Now he is seen as heartless and almost robotic. But Quinn seems to have caught his eye. When fate seems to play a joke in them and strands them together they will have to rely on each other to survive. The story is filled with sci-fi action and adventure. ...more

Quinn had suffered at the hands of the slavers but had been rescued by the Detyen warriors and was now on Earth with no intentions of ever leaving again. She still had nightmares and couldn't be touch by a man at all. Kayde a soulless thought he was losing it big time with his obsession with Quinn, so he requested the mission to see if their HQ had been leveled to get away from her. Touching story where both people feel drawn to each other but neither knowing why. Though this is a romance it has ...more

Whoa i love this series. This one was not as "steamy" as the other i read. But it made up for it in the plot twists and action scenes. What can I say? I am easy to please. The souless warrior Kayde planned on running away, then the one thing he was running away ended up stranded on his ship. I truly loved Quinn and Kaydes story. And can not wait for the next book in the series.
I woukd recommend this book. Happy readimg!

Kayde is one of the soul less Deyten warrior who has given up his soul to live a few more years than 30, when all denten's die without a mate. Quinn seems to bring out feelings in him that were thought dead to him. Quinn is a survivor of imprisonment and abuse that Kayde must earn her trust. This series has kept me reading each book as it comes out, and I love each one. These aliens are so entertaining and engaging.

This is a great addition to the series! Quinn may be back but she still isn’t over what happened to her. Kayde isn’t expecting to find a denya (mate) of his own be he can’t stop watching Quinn. When he decides to get away and goes on a mission back home he didn’t expect to find Quinn stowed aboard his ship. This is a fast-paced read with plenty of drama and great chemistry. The story held my interest throughout and the story keeps you thoroughly entertained. A good read.

This is book 3 in the series and although it’s not completely needed to read these in order it might enhance the story if you do. The author is so good at world building and writes such amazing alien/human romances and this one is no difference. There’s a lot of adventure and drama though for this couple to go through before they can reach their HEA.

story of Quinn and Kayde A good read with some adventure a mystery of finding the ambassador. This book also reviews a little bit of the previous books that leads to this one. I kind a got confused a little and had to review my other book from this author to get my brain back on track. I loved it. The saga continues of the underlying story but an shared ending for Quinn and Kayde.
