*Received from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review*2.5 StarsThis book had some good points and some bad/ unbelievable parts. The good was Kei was sweet most of the time and did a lot for the kids Ilara was taking care of. Ilara took in abandoned/ unwanted children and that was really admirable, especially since it seemed like almost every male on this planet was a sick creep. The sex goes on the good and bad list. Good because, for the most part, is was hot and you didn't get the same ki [...]
Ilara is the mother hen for the lost kids. Wanted by a corrupt law enforcement officer, she is doing her best to protect and feed the children. It's a never ending job. There is no way to legitimately feed them. She steals money from unsuspecting citizens in order to buy food for the kids. These kids are ripe for the picking too. Picking by pedophiles who want to force them into brothels.When Ilara taunts the corrupt officer of the law one too many times, she flees and distances herself from the [...]
This book was really fun, lots of excitement, great characters (oh how I want Kei!), and smoking hot sex! Of the three books in the series it is probably the least BDSM'sy, but there is spanking. The journey was good, the end satisfying so all in all a great book. This was my favorite book in the trilogy. Why didn't I give it 5 stars you ask? Well,(and yes, this is me being overly picky) I was distracted by the number and style of exclamations the characters used. I assume I'm using the right te [...]
Eternal Passion is the second book in the Across the Stars series by India Masters. It can be read as a standalone, but I'd suggest reading book one so you will get an idea of who Kei is before he meets Ilara. Not to mention you'll understand the relationship between Solae and Kei a bit more. I enjoyed the first book in the series, it was a super smutty romp across galaxies. This book? It is way more substantial in the story -- highly engaging, an emotional rollercoaster. The hero is over-the-to [...]
Ilara is the Shepard, she protects the children who get abandoned and abused. She steals, lies, and will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Now though her children are being taken and she knows who is behind it. Kei is the Gladiator. He's famous, rich, good looking, and well a gentleman. When he is pick pocketed and later his garden raided, he catches the the thief. Little do they both know that catching the thief will start both Kei and Ilara on a path full of hot sex, falling in love, and [...]
The story of Kei and The Shepherd - a girl who has been saving the street kids for quite some time. This one has some bad guys that are evil and an endearing leading lady who does bad things for good reasons. You get to see Solae and Raav again which was fun. Much more romance than SciFi I thought the additional elements here to build the world were needed and helped the story. I think the thing that kept it from being a great read was how easily she fell into bed and sex and turned into a sex k [...]

I got this book from net gallery for an honest review.I really enjoyed Ilara and Kei's love story: it was sexy yet exciting. Llara is known as the shepherd, she helps, feeds and protects children who have been abandoned or thrown away. In return, she teaches them to pick pockets not the ideal thing to teach but better than the alternative. Kids that are under her care are going missing - how will she protect her family? Whose behind the kidnapping? What's happens to the children that are taken? [...]
Second book for Across the Stars series is a solid follow for the first. We met Kei, Solae's old fling, in book one and here in book 2 we get to learn more about his gladiator. He is a kind soft hearted man with brute strength loyal to those he loves. When Ilara, the Shepherd, steal from him he lets it slide, until she does it a second time. Only his form of punishment isn't painful but pleasurable. All Ilara has known is pain and hunger so when she finds Kei she knows what she could have and sh [...]
This is the second book in the Across the Stars series by India Masters. Eternal Passion has the story of Illara a street urchin, and her gladiator Kei. I cannot tell you if this should be read in order, I have not read book one. I did however enjoy this story a lot.Llara is a strong person. She has survived in the streets by her wits all of her life. She also helps other street kids get food and find a safe place to stay. She has a huge heart, along with a ton of guts. I really love a spunky fe [...]
For all those who have read India Masters’ Infinate Desire Book 1 in her Across the Stars series and wondered what happened to Kei Rewu after Raav Asirian knocked down his front door to retrieve Solae O’bora, this is the book where you get to find out. As for anyone who has not yet had the pleasure of reading the first book that OK you are only missing out on a great read and it’s OK to read them out of order so far. Eternal Passion book 2 in the Across the Stars series is another great re [...]
This book was definitely better than the first one. While there was quite a bit of sex, it didn’t feel like the author was struggling to get some dialogue in at the beginning of every chapter just to justify more sex. And the story line for this one was much better (as in it actually felt like there was a storyline). The secondary characters in this were also better developed and didn’t just feel like props. I think proves that authors can grow and develop their skills, and it seems clear th [...]
The second novel I have read by India Masters and, quite honestly, the better of the two. I felt that Eternal Passion flowed better, not sounding so hurried to reach the climax. It did have a case of insta-lust (which was an ultra-hot scene to be honest) which felt rushed to me, but I enjoyed reading the couple’s interaction and growth with each other. Overall, Eternal Passion is an enjoyable read with interesting characters and an involved world. I wish we could have had a more in depth look [...]
A wonderful story of a woman dedicated to protecting the innocent and less fortunate in this futuristic world, and a powerful warrior who has sworn off involvement with the opposite sex due to mistrust and broken promises. Ilara and Kei are an unlikely couple who prove that undeniable chemistry and combustible sexual encounters can penetrate the most elaborate barriers; social status, adversity and the disillusionment caused by lovers of the past, are no match for the passion and devotion that [...]
A touching and sexy story.Ilara has charged herself with the care of any abused or unwanted children she comes across. She teaches them to survive the only way she knows how stealing. But there's evil in the city and he's after her.At first she doesn't go to Kei, a gladiator she stole from and had one steamy night with, for helpbut he insists.With the help of some well connected and skilled friends, they'll have to take down this evil before he finds and kills Ilara.5 stars for excitement, steam [...]
A fun, exciting, touching and erotic story about a hunk of a gladiator and a thief that is so much more than the eye can see. The two of them together is a full blown example of great chemistry. Kei and Ilara are two kind hearts, filled with strength and love that have more than enough to give to each other and share with others in need.This was my first time reading India Master's work and I enjoyed her writing and imagination so much I'm putting all of her works on my TBR list!
Received through NetGalley for an honest review. A great continuation of the series. There are some very hot and steamy scenes. It always seems the females end up being spanked by their men in each book, and they seem to like it. Ilara has been a street rat since she was eleven. And now she takes them in even though she still has nothing. But when she meets a handsome gladiator, her life will change for the better.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. You will love the banter back and forth between Kei and Llara. She drives him insane. Can she trust him? Will Kei save her and her little one and make her his?
Even better than the first. The worldbuilding still isn't great, but plays off "Across the Stars" well.
Received this book as an arc via netgalley really enjoyed. Glad the characters from the 1st book made an appearance. It made it all the more enjoyable. Once again adult content, but well written.
