Romance Book Review: C.L. Scholey’s Enslaved
Author: C.L. Scholey
Minuets' life is just about as bad as it can get. In fact, so far she thinks her lot in life couldn't be any worse. That is until she walks through the forest around home one day and finds a injured man and then gets shot herself. She wakes up in a strange place and things appear to go from bad to worse, when she is mistaken for someone else.
Chason and Rance need to get Chason's spy wife back to save face with his people, when they storm a pirate vessel and grab the woman, they have no idea she is a woman from Earth. Why would they when she looks and talks just like Chason's betraying wife. But as facts start to unfold, maybe the stories she's telling aren't so far fetched after all.
Interplanetary travel, sexy alphas, a pack mentality and a 48 year-old woman who has just been given a body to die for make up this sexy sci-fi.
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time seemed to be an occupation of Minuets. Crippled in a car accident at nineteen, walking in on her husband and his lover at thirty. Coming across a bank robbery at forty and just recently losing her job at forty-eight because her boss was having a bad day.
Minuet thought it couldn't possibly get any worse. She was mistaken. Who would have thought finding a gorgeous hunk of a man on the forest floor in need of her aid would be a bad thing?
Holding the man's head in her lap and promising to find him aid Minuet finds herself looking down the business end of a futuristic weapon. Before she can explain she means the man no harm she is shot and killed by his comrade.
When Minuet opens her eyes she finds herself on a strange ship in a strange body married to a strange man. Her 'husband' Chason hates her, his best friend Rance is in love with her and the only way she can prove she is not a Zain spy out to enslave the planet Zanuth with her dancing is to be at the right place at the right time.
