Beyond Reach by Jessica E. Subject 3*
BLURB: Abandoned by her parents...
Born on Earth, Nixie was left on the planet Schedar when her parents returned home. Growing up on the pleasure planet, she follows in the footsteps of the woman who raised her, and learns the art of erotic massage. But Nixie yearns for a different life, one where she receives as much pleasure as she gives.
A runaway prince...
In an attempt to escape his arranged marriage, Prince Mekai flees to Schedar. For, he could never love his betrothed when he already loves another, a fantasy woman who invades his dreams every night. When the woman he seeks carnal pleasure from turns out to be the same one in his fantasies, he believes fate brought them together.
Fated lovers or forever enemies?
Just when Nixie and Mekai believe they have a chance at happiness with each other, they find out why their races are at war, and why they can never be together.
Please note: Beyond Reach was previously published with another publisher. It has been revised into a darker story than the original, and expanded to give the hero and heroine a harder, but much more satisfying happily ever after.
My Review: I received an ARC from Jessica E. Subject for reviewing purposes. I admit that I liked the blurb a little more than I liked the story. Don't get me wrong, it was a great story, but it was also a lot more heartbreaking than I could tolerate right now. Luckily there is a lovely HEA to the book so I wasn't completely downhearted on finishing it, but I think I need to try a reread when life isn't so full of worries and memories.
