About this ebook

Kayde NaDetya isn't asking for a miracle...

After witnessing the impossible mating of his fellow soulless warrior, Kayde doesn't expect a denya of his own. But whenever Quinn Porter walks into a room, he can't keep himself from watching her, from following her, from wanting her. And those desires mean trouble for a man who isn't supposed to feel anything.

Quinn just wants things to get back to normal...

Sure, she was captured by pirates and abused for months, but Quinn's doing her best to stay positive and create a good life back on Earth than. She has a small group of friends made up of fellow survivors and the determination to recover from all that was done to her. She's not in the market for a man, but a certain coldly loyal Detyen could make her change her mind.

An accidental journey...

When Kayde undertakes a mission to journey back to his Detyen home, he's ready for the solitude. What he doesn't expect is Quinn hiding away in one of the bunks on his ship. Forced to undertake a dangerous mission together, even knowing that the remnants of emotion he feels when she's around might be signs of oncoming madness, Kayde and Quinn will need to rely on each other when everything goes wrong and their lives and freedom are at stake.

Can a heartless warrior recover his soul in the arms of a broken woman? Or will the wounds of their pasts prevent the hope of a future?

Each Detyen Warriors novel can be read as a standalone. This science fiction romance series features feisty women, alpha aliens, fated mates, and relationships hot enough to steam up your screen. This book is great for readers of paranormal romance and sci fi romance who love to read in their free time!

The rescued women sat at a table drinking and talking. Quinn still isn’t over what happened to her and has nightmares about her experience. She kept having a feeling she was being watched and, when she went toward the bathrooms, she heard the back door open and followed outside. A figure in black blended into the crowd. She called out “Kayde” but he didn’t stop so she went back inside. Kayde NaDetya has no expectations of finding his denya (mate), yet he feels obsessively compelled to watch Quinn and follow her everywhere. She makes him feel when he shouldn’t feel anything at all because he had allowed the Detyen Legion to remove his soul, and with it all of his emotions, to lengthen his life so he could track their enemy, Yormas of Wreet and bring him to justice for the destruction of Detya. So he mistakenly reasoned that these strange sensations were actually symptoms of his oncoming madness. To get himself away from Quinn, he accepts a dangerous mission to find out what happened to the Detyens and what had been their home, only to be totally surprised to find Quinn, the woman he was trying to avoid, stowed aboard his ship. When they land on a planet for supplies, they are captured and endure ceremonial rituals and fighting. Kayde was forced to fight over and over, knocked out by a dart after each victory. Quinn was told she was queen and her coronation was being prepared, then they put manacles on her hands! Neither knew what was going on here, nor did they know what was happening to the other. To Kayde’s surprise, when he defeats all of the challengers and Quinn asks him to hug her, he realizes that Quinn is, in fact, his denya! He could not believe this was possible, but the things he was feeling told him it was true. Quinn, however, had deep trauma from her slave situation and was afraid to care for Kayde when her fear prevented her from accepting physical intimacy. Could they help each other move forward to heal and find love? Would she realize what he was to her? I was fortunate to read this story along with the audiobook version and it really enhanced the enjoyment of the story. The two narrators did a great job together. The action sped up once they were on the planet and fighting for their freedom. The characters were well-presented. Quinn annoyed me somewhat with her constant references to being bored – it made little sense after her experiences and never knowing what would happen next. Boredom would be the least of my issues! Kayde, however, was a strong, powerful warrior who always made her feel safe. She was fortunate to be with him. Grab your copy and see where this goes. They are far from safe as they now have to retrieve the Queen’s crown. This is an amazing adventure the reader will love!

Wow, what a Way to find out that your heart is alive and well after all. The mind is not the only organ that is able to scheme and get everything and everyone else aware how alive it is. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Heartless is the third book in the Detyen Warriors series. I loved the story about Kayde and Quinn as they work hard together on their journey to safety and love. The characters are well developed and the storyline is captivating from start to finish, with drama, danger, action, suspense, and love. I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.
