Terran (Breeder #2) by Cara Bristol - ARC REVIEW

Title:  Terran
Series:  Breeder #2
Author: Cara Bristol
Release Date: May 5, 2014

After fleeing loneliness and heartache on Terra, Tara Diehl has adjusted to male-dominated Parseon better than most vendors--until she is kidnapped by Alpha Marlix, one of the five rulers of the planet. At first she’s terrified of her tall, muscled abductor, especially when he doesn’t hesitate to quell her struggle for freedom with a little corporal discipline. After all her methods and ploys to escape fail, she decides to seduce her way to freedom.

But out of seduction and subterfuge grow a true intimacy that cause Marlix and Tara to take action that drives Parseon to the brink of civil war, and threatens not only their relationship, but also their lives.

Terran, the second book in the Breeder sci-fi series, is a “capture” romance involving a domineering but hunky alien, and a female with a bad dye job and an even worse attitude.

Terran is the second in Cara Bristol's Breeder series.  I loved Breeder, the first book, and was anxiously awaiting the second in this series.  Cara created a world in these books that I definitely wouldn't want to visit, as a female, but that I love reading about.  The entire society revolves around the men.  Females are of no value.  But in this book, a women from Earth or Terra as it's referered to challenges everything. 

Tara came to Parseon to escape bad things on Earth.  She is not meek or submissive like the women on the planet.  She speaks her mind and does her own thing.  Then she meets one of the world leaders, Marlix, and things go from there.

In the first book Marlix was definitely not one of my favorite people, but here Cara really shows us his transformation.  He is a product of his society.  Women mean nothing to him and never have.  He leads strongly and forcefully.  Yet when he learns about women from Tara he challenges his core beliefs and changes into a caring man.  He is still very dominant and is still definitely in charge, but he learns to talk, question, and love. 

This was a wonderful love story that I recommend to all!
