I never thought I'd be a fan of alien romance, but Aria has made a fan out of me. This is an alien/human romance where the human is a slave to an affluent alien family of another species. When all the noble aliens are invited to a royal ball where the prince will choose his mate, she's dragged along with her owner.
I've read very few books about dancers but this one was great. It had a rich dancer who was pretty set on doing the exact moves and being completely technical and she was competing for an arts scholarship. But she didn't want to work with the choreographer her mom chose who was really stiff and wouldn't be able to push her. She doesn't want to continue to rehearse the same dance that her mom wants her to use to get into an elite ballet company. Instead, she wants to win this competition so that colleges can see her perform and she can have that as an option rather than making being part of a ballet company her life.
I've read two of the stories in this anthology, and I know the rest of the anthology is going to be amazing because of the authors who are participating in it. So if you like sweet Christmas romances, this may be a collection for you.
This book was so good. The characters had instant chemistry and the descriptions were amazing. Instead of coming off as crass at times, it was just super sexy without the cringe. The girl main character loves her job, and she doesn't want to risk it over a hot prince. He has a responsibility to marry and have heirs, but he's distracted from the mission because of his feelings for her.
After pissing off the head of the supernatural lab, failing at befriending my fellow inmates, and pitching a temper tantrum in the underground cafeteria, it was only a matter of time before I had to do something about this whole captivity thing.
