#review – Venomous (Alien Warrior #1) by Penelope Fletcher (18+)
“She is mine to protect, mine to shelter, mine to feed and mine to cover. When she is weak, I shall be her strength. She was stolen from her world by our captors. Now her survival is my responsibility. It is her duty to endure my lust, respect my nest mates and honour our union with offspring. I revere this giver of life, as is the way.”~ Venomous One, formerly of Rök, enslaved gladiator
Six things a woman should not have to deal with: 1) More than one barbaric alien lover/life mate. 2) Long term stay on a slave planet where you’re one female amongst thousands of ‘needy’ males. 3) Killer space pirates. 4) Psychotic mother-in-law. 5) Putting your alien lover/life mates’ species under the threat of annihilation because you ticked off the wrong Slave Chieftain. 6) A marauding overlord with a harem four hundred strong who is determined to make you concubine number four hundred and one. My name is Lumen. I am stranded in a galaxy far, far away and here be huge f***ing aliens.”~ Lumen Young, formerly of Earth,
Lost in space Abducted from Earth and transported to a slave planet in an unknown galaxy, Lumen finds herself, shackled, naked and put on display before an alien horde. Told the males will battle for the right to slake their lusts with her body, she would become the slave of slaves. Venomous One, a proud warrior enslaved, has given up hope of returning to his home world and finding a life mate. When a female is tossed into the arena his soul demands he claim her. Winning his mate by Right of Might, he vows to protect Lumen and be a good provider, no matter how ugly her human appearance. Rescued by Venomous’ people, the couple face space pirates, the condemnation of an alien government, galactic war, and a deadlier threat from within the warrior’s own kindred.
Warning: violence, profanity and sexual situations with multiple partners.
“Aye, ’tis truth, I am who all beings in creation like best. *smug grin* I give it a moontide before the human I have chosen to bear my cubs begs me to bed her. She will be in thrall to my lust like all the rest.” ~ King Beowyn ThunderClaw, the Great Alpha
“So what if I’m their One, Queen tae their King? They say my ‘duty’ is tae manage their harems. Are they having a bloody laugh? Their ‘claiming’ ritual insae set in stone. It dinnae mean I cannae tell my philandering husbands where tae stick it. I’m going tae explore the universe with my Clan after I, um, borrow a spaceship. I have my own responsibilities, noble legacy and family expectations. Neither male is going tae stand in the way of that. Like my ancestors before me, I’ll fight tae the death before I give up my freedom.” ~ Sìne of Clan Graeme
“*sigh* Why do my stubborn wife and stubborner husband not get along?” ~ Eoirk SnowBlade, Verak High Commander

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Stylized image of British Author Penelope Fletcher in blues, purples and blacks.
‘My female characters are dear to me. I strive to allow them their strength and their innate femininity. As for loyalty to their emotional, romantic hearts and their sense of social responsibility and destiny, I see no need to sacrifice one for the other. Women wield an intoxicating power. It goes beyond physical prettiness to the beauty of the whole. Without the poetry of the mind and heart the body becomes a useless thing. I want my female characters to be brave, daring, and bold. I wish for their minds to be as relevant and celebrated as their bodies.’
Penelope Jade Fletcher is a British author of genre romance.
