Review @JessieDauthor - The Conquest by Jessie Donovan (Kelderan Runic Warriors #1)

The Conquest
Kelderan Runic Warriors #1
by Jessie Donovan

Leader of a human colony planet, Taryn Demara has much more on her plate than maintaining peace or ensuring her people have enough to eat. Due to a virus that affects male embryos in the womb, there is a shortage of men. For decades, her people have enticed ships to their planet and tricked the men into staying. However, a ship hasn’t been spotted in eight years. So when the blip finally shows on the radar, Taryn is determined to conquer the newcomers at any cost to ensure her people’s survival.

Prince Kason tro de Vallen needs to find a suitable planet for his people to colonize. The Kelderans are running out of options despite the fact one is staring them in the face—Planet Jasvar. Because a group of Kelderan scientists disappeared there a decade ago never to return, his people dismiss the planet as cursed. But Kason doesn’t believe in curses and takes on the mission to explore the planet to prove it. As his ship approaches Jasvar, a distress signal chimes in and Kason takes a group down to the planet’s surface to explore. What he didn’t expect was for a band of females to try and capture him.

As Taryn and Kason measure up and try to outsmart each other, they soon realize they’ve found their match. The only question is whether they ignore the spark between them and focus on their respective people’s survival or can they find a path where they both succeed?

(Approximately 75,000 words with a happy ending)  

About the Author:  Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The one thing you'll find in all of Jessie's stories are strong, capable women and the people who love them.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

This is the first in a new series by Jessie Donovan.  This is for adults only due to the steamy content, and there are no dragon shifters or shifters of any kind in this book.

As always Jessie has some awesome characters that definitely didn’t take me long to really like.  I especially like Taryn’s determination and her never give up attitude.  At first I wasn’t sure I was going to like Kason, he was arrogant and definitely sexist.  He has grown on me because while he comes from a planet that underutilizes women, he values them above all.  I love how he tries to keep an open mind and how Taryn keeps trying to push the limits further and further.  They are a great pair, and I can’t wait to see what awaits the rest of them especially the Princess and Vala.

Jessie Donovan is fabulous at developing characters you want to know more about and that you become invested in.  She knows how to balance drama and action to keep you engaged in the book.  She is definitely one of my favorite authors.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

I recommend this book to anyone who loves Jessie’s writing style and to those Sci-fi lovers who likes aliens and space travel adventures.
