I adore Katie Reus and her books. From the Redstone Security Series to the Serafina Series, from the paranormal to the contemporary, from Katie Reus to Savannah Stuart, her stories are steeped in passion, danger between the pages, wit and humor adorn her words, and her narration keeps us on the edge of our seats.


“Heated Mating” is a short novella re-published in 2014 and is set in the year 2235. Rescued by Luminet warriors, Saroya finds herself under the protection of brothers Gage and Linc. A place where the custom of a male taking two mates is a common, Linc defies it and stays away from Saroya.

But with the death of his brother Gage, Linc cannot control his feelings for Saroya yet he keeps to himself. Saroya has always loved Linc and is not sure of her place with him now that Gage is dead. With passion sizzling the sheets, and tentative steps towards trying to understand each other, Saroya and Linc finally confess their feelings for each other.

“Heated Mating” is a purely erotic and passionate romance of two people finally getting to know each other, confessing their feelings for each other and building a future with each other.

Short, sizzling and passionate, it is a perfect and satisfactory read.
