Kurzbeschreibung

Beyond Ontariese, Book One: Tal dar Aune, a powerful shape-shifting mage, comes to Earth on a desperate quest to find a mysterious woman before his nemesis destroys her. Little does Tal know the "helpless" female he's come to save is the key to peace on his war-torn world...or that he'll long to touch her, take her, make her his.

Unaware of her royal roots or alien origins, Charlotte spends her first thirty years on Earth. Then Tal bursts into her life with all the subtlety of a thunder storm. He's rude, arrogant, and easily the most desirable man she's ever encountered. With a ruthless madman hot on their heels, they can't afford to be distracted by the attraction rapidly growing between them, but the emotions are too powerful to ignore.

Note to Readers: This book contains detailed descriptions of sizzling passion only suitable for mature readers.

From Cyndi: Taken by Storm is a futuristic action/adventure saga with scifi and paranormal elements. In other words, it doesn't fit neatly into one genre. But don't let that discourage you from giving the book a try. If you strip away the interdimensional portals and magic powers, you're left with human emotions and relatable challenges. Charlotte is a widow confronting her deepest fears while reality as she knows it is redefined. And Tal might be a shapeshifter, but his stubbornness and dedication to tradition are what make him seem real. Though each book can be read as a standalone, connecting plot threads and common characters make the experience richer if the books are read in series order. The first book is on me, so have fun!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Splendid Sci-Fi Romance 13. Januar 2013
Von Sophia Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a nice blend of the Sci-Fi with the paranormal along with the romance. The blurb is what originally drew me to the book and I was not disappointed.

The story opens with the High Queen of Ontariese making a personal sacrifice to do what she must for the Kingdom which is on the brink of civil war. The Queen uses her mage power to send her twin daughters through a portal hiding them in two separate places to be retrieved when they are needed. Many years later, the war continues with no chance of relief and an evil mage plots the downfall of all for his own greed for power. Tal, a mage, Trey, his brother, and Vee, Tal's mentor set out to find him and also foil the evil mage's plot that takes him to earth.

Then the scene changes to present day earth where Charlotte sits in her mountain cabin contemplating her future of moving to Seattle, completing the Bar exam, and getting a job with a nice law firm. That same night, an odd lightning storm changes her fate when it brings Tal dar Aune, an Ontarian, into her life.

Tal is mystified as to why this earth woman, Charlotte is of interest to his enemy, but he vows to keep her safe and with him until the answers can be found. Tal and Charlotte race for their lives even as Charlotte fights to break away from him at first, but then the clues start building up and all lead to one thing- Charlotte is much more than she seems and may be the answer for all of Ontariese.

The plot kept moving at a good pace even as the author deftly fit in the explanation to the Ontariese world. I love Sci-fi for its creative world-building and this story offered the interesting concept of magically gifted people and a matriarchal-style society. It was exciting during the cat and mouse chases to keep Charlotte out of danger and the slow build up of her relationship that went beyond attraction with Tal. I loved the little twists that occurred a few times to keep things from getting blase'. Tal and Charlotte were stumped a few different times when they tried to be together.

But I think my favorite part of the book was Charlotte herself. At first, she seemed to be a human woman who has known heartbreak and is lonely, but her exposure to Tal and the other Ontariese along with their trouble shows she is no marshmallow. She doesn't allow them to bully her, but at the same time she's not prone to act stupidly or get whiny when her whole world changes on her. She is saddened by her losses and fearful of change, but she goes with it and that's my kind of gal. I like that she doesn't play around with Tal. She might disagree with him- actually she does disagree with him and frequently- but this doesn't make her sulk or have to much pride to meet him half-way or wish to mend things. Yes, she had gifts, but it was fun the way her human law degree was what served her almost as well.

Tal is a strong male who because of his talent as a mage has a lot to learn still. He is strong on his traditions and has to be shown that it is the principles underlying the traditions that are the more important. He has had a lot of loss and sorrow in his life and he wants Charlotte, but he must learn the value of compromise and the learn that others without his talents have value before he can achieve what he most desires.

So all in all, it was a fab sci-fi PNR romance and I look forward to the rest of the series. I hope to get Trey's story and more of the other characters too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sci-Fi meets Paranormal Romance 28. Juli 2013
Von RebeccaJ1973 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was one I kept reading long after my body demanded sleep. I loved the mix of Science Fiction with all the Paranormal abilities. Throw in a bit of Romance and a touch of Law, and you end up with Taken By Storm!

Of course, it always helps to have a range of relationships in a story. You have a love story between the two leading characters, several familial relationships with a great divergence in strength and content, a mentor/protege' relationship, and then one truly evil villain to add lots of torment to them all.

I particularly enjoyed how the relationship between the two lead characters began early in the book, but in such a way as to feel realistic. Tal was the typical big, strong hero protecting his little "helpless" woman, while still showing enough tenderness toward Charlotte as to soften the edges making him lovable. While Charlotte showed us a woman who was strong on her own, yet still willing to lean on her man when she needed him. And, of course, like all great heroines, she showed she was not nearly so weak as Tal believed.

It was fun to see how the two, whose cultures were so dissimilar, had to learn to compromise and change to adjust their vastly different views to make their love workable. I also tremendously enjoyed all the things Tal could do with his Mystic abilities. In fact, many of the characters had extra powers, and it was entertaining seeing how each was used...for good or for evil.

Obviously, you can't get too scientific with most Science Fiction, and this is another book that would not stand up well under scrutiny of true science. But, since this is the type of book you read just for fun, enjoy the story for what it is...Fiction.

I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a pleasant surprise 17. Februar 2014
Von Lorie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is very hard to find romance novels with a solid story line. Throw in an alien and the end is more often than not dreadful. This story is different. I began reading this story assuming it would play out like so many other stories I have read. Alien finds girl....girl whines...alien beds girl....end of story. This one was different. Because of the preconcieved notions I had about this book I actually had to reread the first few pages. I was not anticipating any type of intelligent reading.

As a reader if you are looking for a story that has romance, suspense, and lots of action.....this story is for you. Thank you Cyndi Friberg for freeing me from my hum drum reading slump I have been stuck in for a while now.

So, wow, lots of potential and I will be looking for more more more. I hope the author continues to deliver and keeps the characters as solidly developed as this book. The plot is good and I can see a lot of potential for a great series with lots of love, suspense, humor, and hot, sexy scenes.
