He must choose – her life – or his freedom.
Tam is brutal. Hard. Uncompromising. Resigned to a lifetime alone. Until he finds a woman frozen in space, suffering from a deadly disease. There’s only one way to save her – to Bond her to him for life with his mind, his body, and his serum.
She must choose – her people – or his love.
When her planet is invaded by alien slavers, Nissa launches into space in a cryo-pod in a desperate search for help. Tam may be her savior, but their future is not meant to be.
In a universe at war, Nissa and Tam battle their dangerous addiction and their own stubborn hearts. Their strange part-chemical, part-mystical Bonding brought them together – and just might be what tears them apart.
A little about Imogen first:
Hi! Call me Immy!
I’ve got a stupid-rampant imagination for all things silly, sexy and sordid. It’s hard to keep it all in, so I write down my day-dreams and my night-dreams into the form of big alpha heroes and the ladies who love them.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them! Sign up for my newsletter at www.imogenkeeper.com for a sneak peak into the world of Argentus, as well as information about my upcoming novel!
RA Winter’s Review: 5-stars
Today we are reviewing Imogen Keeper. I’m a wee bit biased when it comes to Imogen. If you take a look at her book, The Bonding, you will find a name, mine, thanking me for my support. I didn’t do anything besides enjoy her story. She, however, helped me with my writing and I thanked her in my dedication.
Imogen is the first erotic work I ever read. She had popped over on a writing site we both belong to and critiqued one of my pieces. I always crit back, so I ran over to have a look-see. The first thing I saw was ‘warning, erotica’. I cringed. To me, erotica was porn on pages. You know, pizza guy comes for a delivery and finds two girls having a go at it. He joins in, cause you know, it’s a porno and hey, who doesn’t want to do the pizza guy? You’re reading sarcasm, right?
A mutual friend told me that I’d never regret reading her and that she could teach me a lot. He was right, (Peter is always right.) The second I read Imogen’s first chapter, I was hooked. A wonderful story and the voice? So nice and clean. Imogen does the deep 3rd person so well. She doesn’t have to pull you into her story. You step into it and beg for more. Then I got to the sex. I’m a sex skimmer, or at least I used to be Pre-Imogen. I couldn’t believe that I enjoyed reading the intimate scenes. Since then, each erotic piece I read is measured by The Bonding. Not many stand up to its plot and delivery.
Imogen’s writing has a flow to it that few can match. It is natural, precise, and so engaging. The plot is very entertaining too! I’m so glad I read this because, without it, I’d have blinders on and would be ignoring erotica as a valid reading option. Yep, I’d still be a sex skimmer without Imogen Keeper.
Erotica isn’t porn on paper. Erotica is a story that is driven by sex. Imogen combined romance, erotica, and Sci-Fi in the perfect fashion.
And come on! A saving Serum? Just too good to ignore.
Loved it! Five Stars. And yes, if I hadn’t read it before, I’d still give it five stars.
Sherry Terry’s Review: 5-stars
I loved The Bonding from the first word all the way to the last word. It’s got a lot of great Scifi techy stuff that made me feel like I was in space with the characters. The cover promised a love story, and it delivered.
I don’t usually read Scifi because it’s not written the way I like. The Bonding may have just changed my mind. I enjoyed the way Imogen Keep introduced the Scifi aspects with just enough but not too much.
The characters were well rounded and described with enough detail to give me a good idea of what they look like. Tam is a big, strong space warrior and when he finds Nissa the choice is not so simple for him. Rescue her and save her life by having sex with her, or let her die.
I thought the way Imogen worked the sex into the story was wonderful. Nice and hot.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes erotica, romance, and Scifi.
