A rogue spaceship captain. A human scientist.

Faith has spent the past eight years as a scientist locked in an alien research lab. When she finally manages to escape and finds out what the aliens are doing with her work, she is appalled and determined to stop their plans.

The alien spaceship captain who unknowingly assisted her escape is going to help her shut down the lab - whether he wants to or not. And she’s not going to let his massive body or the kind heart hidden behind his gruff facade distract her.

Captain Athtar finally has his life exactly the way he wants it - he has his ship, his crew, and his freedom. No mouthy little human is going to interfere with any of that, no matter how much she tempts him or how much his instincts demand that he claim her. If only he weren’t as tempted as much by her brilliant mind as by her luscious body.

Can Faith and Athtar fight their overwhelming attraction long enough to defeat the evil scientists and stay ahead of the Imperial Fleet? And when the battle is over, can there be a future for the two of them?

My Two Cents

4 "A new favorite" stars

Okay, so I'm not saying it would be cool to be kidnapped by aliens, intent on selling me into slavery, however... if I knew that an alien viking would be my hero...


I'm just sayin.

Athtar was absolutely delicious and although he was a reluctant hero, he was indeed a remarkable hero in this story. He even made my somewhat blah feelings for Faith a bit easier to bear.



I also read the 7th book of the series, Greta and the Gargoyle, but it was more of a novella than anything else. I actually really enjoyed it too and give it 3.5 stars. It was about a totally helpless human female who was imprisoned for defending herself against the horrors of her new 'master'. Imprisoned, it takes the kindness of one of her guards (Mikaroz the gargoyle) to give her a taste of happiness. Action and a bit of sex... can't really complain. It overlaps the story of Cam and the Conqueror, so it was neat to see those characters again.

About the Author

Honey Phillips writes steamy science fiction stories about hot alien warriors and the human women they can’t resist. From abductions to invasions, the ride might be rough, but the end always satisfies!

Honey wrote and illustrated her first book at the tender age of 5. Her writing has improved since then. her drawing skills, unfortunately, have not. She loves writing, reading, traveling, cooking, and drinking champagne - not necessarily in that order.

An alien emperor. A silent young woman.

Captured by aliens as a child, Ella was raised as the beloved pet of a kind alien couple. One night of blood and terror destroyed her sheltered life and shattered her voice. Now she’s a slave in the emperor’s palace.

Alone in a terrifying new world, she clings to the person who saves her - the dashing young emperor. But the handsome alien also arouses unfamiliar longings in her heart.

When Emperor Karthajin rescues a silent female from an attack, he does not expect to become an object of worship to the enchanting little creature.

New to the throne, surrounded by smiling faces and hidden enemies, he finds unexpected comfort in the innocent human who trusts him so completely. But as his feelings grow stronger, so does his reluctance to expose her to the viciousness of the Imperial Court.

Can an emperor lose his heart to a human slave? And will his empire ever accept such a match?

My Two Cents

3 "The Mute and the Master" stars

I'm still not sure how I feel about this one. I couldn't connect to the characters and it kind of felt like I was reading this story through a filter. Things were happening, but they weren't really penetrating for me.

Ella was stolen from Earth as a child. She became a slave to a somewhat benevolent couple who wanted her to remain a child. Why? Well, it all becomes clear as the story goes, but for quite some time, everyone believed that she was a child. I can't even comprehend being 18 and acting like a kid. Add the fact that she couldn't or wouldn't talk... yeah, it was hard to get behind.

Then there's Karthajin. As emperor, he never seems to have a free moment. He doesn't remember the last time he had some fun. With Ella, everything he'd forgotten was brand new. She brought out the best version of himself, as he did for her.

I will say this... the way the author described his manhood... Let's just say that I couldn't imagine something like that, but the idea of it was a bit enticing. Don't tell!

Review // Deb and the Demon by Honey Phillips

An alien prince. A pregnant slave.

Deb is ripped away from her comfortable life on Earth and sold as a slave to a vicious alien. Six months later, all she has to live for is the child now growing inside her. Her child’s safety is worth any price, even submitting to the disturbingly attractive alien who has just purchased her.

Rastrath hides a sharp mind behind a careless facade. He may be a Prince of the Royal House, but he has always been despised for his mixed blood, even by his own mother. A female who values her child more than herself is an unexpected prize - one that comes wrapped in a luscious package.

When an unexpected danger forces them into a marriage of convenience, the stakes are raised. Can Deb trust Rastrath’s feelings for her are more than a desire to protect his investment? Can Rastrath follow his duty and build a family of his own at the same time?

My Two Cents

3 "Where can I find my own alien prince?" stars

Okay, so here's the deal, and I really hope I don't come off sounding like a jerk, but... I do not like stories in which the heroine is already pregnant for another dude. I really don't. And despite the fact that Deb became pregnant through unorthodox means (triggers people), I still couldn't get down with it.

It didn't help that Deb wasn't the warmest, most encouraging heroine I've come across. She made things so very difficult for me.

But Rast... yeah, this prince really made this story for me. He was sweet and kind and generous and loyal to a fault. He was also harboring a lot of hurt. And yet he was such a blessing to everyone, especially Deb. I love how dedicated and patient he was with her. He was the epitome of everything she needed and I loved every moment with him.

So while this wasn't my favorite story of the series, Rast definitely made an impression with me. Kudos to the author for that and for making me want to keep on reading!

Review // Cam and the Conqueror by Honey Phillips

Cam and the Conqueror by Honey Phillips

"I am not always in control, sweetness.
I control my station.

But you, sweetness, control my heart.
I would be empty without you.

He made a bargain. She was the payment.

Torn from her quiet life on Earth, Cam doesn’t expect to end up enslaved to an alien ruler. But even as he trains her to submit to him, she begins to see through her master’s cold facade. While her body learns to surrender, her heart learns to love.

Exiled by his people, Kievan Rus has fought to establish his place in the galaxy. The space station he rules with icy control is the outward symbol of his success and it means everything to him - until a beautiful woman challenges his restraint. Her warmth eases the cold he has felt for so long.

But Kievan has promised a trained human female to a member of the Royal House. If he fails to deliver, everything he has struggled for is in danger, including the lives of everyone on board his station.

Can Kievan abandon everything he has built? And if not, can Cam’s love survive such a brutal betrayal?

My Two Cents

3.5 "Absolutely filthy" stars

After meeting Kievan in the previous book, I really wanted to see him again. I even mentioned it in that review (see here).

I really should have been prepared for what I found here. Based on Kievan's actions before, when he had to convince people of his ownership of Beth, I really should have known. But I wasn't and I didn't and here we are. I read some alien BDSM and I can't complain.

Kievan had saved Dragar and Beth from a disgusting prince's evil machinations and still owed the prince a human slave. That's where Cam fits in. He's supposed to train her for her future and yet she was made for him. How can a dom ever resist a true sub?

While there wasn't much to their relationship outside of sex, it seemed to work for them and therefore it worked for me. I found myself enjoying this far more than I could have expected. I guess I'm a sucker for filth!

Review // Beth and the Barbarian by Honey Phillips

"What do you feel from me?"
"Warmth. Strength. Security." Her voice was barely above a whisper. "You make me feel safe and happy, like I'm home."

Release - October 18, 2018

Heat Level - 4 out of 5 / frequent and almost explicit
Format/Source - ebook borrowed through Kindle Unlimited

Can an alien Outcast and a lonely human find happiness together?

Hypersensitive to the emotions of others, Beth is resigned to spending her life alone - until she is attacked by savage aliens. Rescued by a massive scarred warrior, she feels a connection for the first time. With a chance to finally escape her loneliness, she doesn’t hesitate when he informs her she must accompany him.

Dragar never expected to find the perfect female while tracking one of the saboteurs targeting his people. A former Outcast, he is scarred inside and out, and knows that he is unworthy of a mate. His instincts insist he protect the innocent female from all danger - even his own rampant attraction - but he can't resist her innocent allure.

Now Beth and Dragar are being pursued across the galaxy. The time on the run is only forcing them closer together. Can Dragar put aside his troubled past and give Beth the love she deserves? Or will they both end up alone again?

My Two Cents

4 "What Lies Beneath" stars

Two people, one human and one alien, who thought they would forever be alone. And then they weren't. One is scarred, inside and out and it takes the loving touch, the loving heart of the one he holds dear to finally start to heal him.

A former Outcast, Dragar never felt worthy. He believed he was destined for a life alone, helping to forge a new way for his people, but not really one of them. Beth was an empath, and because she felt too much, she removed herself from much of society. She also believed she would always be alone. And then Dragar came bursting out of the woods, killed her attackers, and took her on a journey among the stars.

Some favorite scenes: everything on Kievan's space station (does he get his own book?); Dragar standing up for Beth and what they share; all that Beth was willing to do to tie herself to Dragar; Beth and Rianen (does this warrior get her own book?); and Jakkar and Anna standing by their sides.

I loved the instant connection between these characters. I enjoyed seeing how, although they were supposed to be so different, they were so much alike. And their feelings for one another, their intimate moments, their bond... yeah, that's what I like to read.

There's a reason I once again took a chance on this author. Sweet romance with dominant heroes, soft yet fierce heroines, and happily ever afters. Gets me every time!

Review // Anna and the Alien by Honey Phillips

February 02, 2022

Anna and the Alien by Honey Phillips

A fierce protectiveness washed over him as he cradled her in his arms, along with an equally strong wave of possessiveness; the little human belonged to him and he was never going to let her go.

Anna Elliott wanted to get away. But an alien spaceship was not on the itinerary.

All Anna needed was a calm, relaxing vacation. Instead, she finds herself enslaved aboard an alien spacecraft and forced to help an injured prisoner — a huge, golden-skinned warrior. Even wounded, he arouses her in ways she’s never known. But if he dies, so does she.

When the spaceship crashes on a strange planet, she must put her trust in him to survive. But the passion he stirs in her may cause her to lose her heart as well.

Jakkar is a Sardoran mercenary searching desperately for a new planet to replace his dying home world. He never expected to be injured, captured, and then shipwrecked. Forbidden to mate outside his species, he can’t help but be tempted by Anna’s curvy body and her caring heart.

Now he’s responsible for the small group of survivors — and the luscious little human he’s determined to claim as his own.

Can a girl and her alien find happiness on a deserted planet at the far end of the galaxy?

My Two Cents

4 "If I get abducted by aliens, I better end up with one like Jakkar" stars

Jakkar was such a yummy alien and Anna, though she had some growing to do because her situation was utterly hopeless, she was brave and sweet. I'm so glad I went ahead and tried a new-to-me author, although she wasn't new new because I had promoted her work in the past. Actually, I did promo for this book before its release and added it to my tbr right away — where it stayed until now. So YAY me for branching out AND tackling my to-read list.

This story was just filthy enough and action-packed enough for me to give more of this author's stories a go. Seeing as how the side characters will be getting stories of their own, I've got plenty of books to devour. The writing, the characters, the plot, the everything has made a fan out of me and I would definitely recommend this read to anyone who enjoys scifi romance.

I'll see you at the next one!
