One hot Syfy romance!



After a lifetime of war, Commander Trenzent has left behind the bloody battlefields of the Bel’Tan galaxy and traveled to Earth in the hopes of finding his bondmate. He can only pray that the one woman in the universe who can save his battered soul can look past his scarred exterior to the man within. Unfortunately for Tren, his potential bride is terrified of men thanks to years of abuse at the hands of her father and won’t be easy to seduce.

Paige Grant is pretty sure she’s losing her mind obsessing about a man who doesn’t exist. Ever since the night a wormhole opened up next to Jupiter she’s had these intense dreams about a terrifying, damaged man who awakens a passion inside of her she never knew existed. Despite his grim exterior, he makes her feel safe, something she desperately needs in the real world as she fights off the advances of a man who will not take no for an answer.

But Trenzent isn’t the only Kadothian warrior who believes Paige is his bondmate. An old political enemy of Tren’s, Rell Thantos, also believes the sweet and shy young Earth woman holds the missing part of his soul. He will do whatever it takes to win her heart, even if it means becoming bloodbrothers with a man he hates.

The men will have to find a way to get past their anger and work together to protect Paige against an unknown enemy who is determined to keep the women of Earth out of the Bel’Tan Galaxy forever.

One hot Syfy romance!


If there is one thing you can count on from Ms. Mayburn no matter the romance genre it’s the incendiary loving. I’m very taken with her Syfy Bondmates series. What could be better for justifying an MMF menage relationship than an alien matriarchal culture that necessitates its warriors form bonds for their very survival and sanity until they meet that one woman they are meant to bond with? Even with the necessity these warriors keep their blood brotherhoods secret and not out of shame but rather to protect each other politically and in times of war from being used against each other.

As the Kadothian male ages, he starts to lose himself to his inner beast. The only thing that can fully arrest the madness is a bond with their bondmate. Until they find their bondmate the bond they hold with their blood brother lessens the effects. Eventually, though, this bond is not enough. The loss of emotion is one of the first symptoms of the oncoming madness.

In the case of Trenzent and Rell, they’ve been blood brothers and lovers for a millennium. That is until several decades ago when an incident & misunderstanding led to a schism and absolute hatred on Tren’s part. Now, both Tren and Rell are close to succumbing to their beasts. Then Tren’s mate is found on Earth. With the political unrest in the Bel’Tan Galaxy and slavers on the loose, Tren is forced to accept the help of his blood brother to protect their mate.

Paige Grant had an abusive childhood that has left her scarred and reluctant to engage in a relationship. She was attending college when an inexplicable natural disaster struck Earth. In the days following the event, Paige and her friends have retreated to their small hometown to avoid the violence and unrest of the city. When one of her best friends schemes to meet the hot guys that have moved in next door, Paige meets Tren. She’s drawn to this scarred but beautiful man from the instant they meet. Her nights are filled with erotic dreams of two men. For a virginal Paige with major relationship issues when it comes to men, both reactions are highly abnormal. For the first time she’s blossoming into the woman she was meant to be.

Both Tren and Rell are powerful men. The discovery of their bondmate puts a rather large target on Paige’s back. Navigating the danger while creating a bond with Paige has its challenges. With the bond comes clarity that has these two rediscovering a powerful love. Paige’s Warriors is a hot and steamy read that will have you turning the pages in anticipation. The series arc seriously expands with this addition to the Bondmate series. I couldn’t put it down and I’m really looking forward to Roxie’s story.

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
