Review Saving Sara by Angela Castle

Title: Saving Sara (Warriors of Kelon, #5)
Author : Angela Castle
Source: Self purchase
Genre: Sci/Fi Erotic Romance
Length : novella (84 kindle pages)

Sara, abducted from Earth by cruel aliens, is used as a torture slave and left to die.

Solron, a healer of Kelon, is annoyed at being ordered to go on a cleanup mission to check abandoned enemy war bases. When he and the crew discover a small human woman on the brink of death, Solron manages to save her. But the beautiful little human stirs more within him than his need to heal. Under Solron’s care, Sara falls deeply in love with the alien doctor and he claims her for himself. But when confronted by the Xerson who tortured her, Solron demands a fight with him.

Sara knows she has no choice but to let them fight, but will she now lose the man she loves to the curled Xerson, or will justice at last be served?

Anyone that follows my reviews should know that I love to indulge myself in sci-fi erotic romance on occasion and Angela Castle is one of my go to gals. Saving Sara is book five in the Warriors of Kelon series and packs a much more emotional punch than the previous installments.

After being abducted and tortured by a sadistic race of aliens Sara is left for dead when they abandon their base.
Solron manages to bring her body back to life, but her mind is shattered. As a dedicated healer he feels helpless. Through companionship and kind words Sara begins to recover but they soon discover that their feelings run deeper than the standard doctor/patient relationship. The plot thickens when Sara still feels compelled to go home to earth, not to mention what will happen when Solron meets the nefarious creature that caused Sara so much pain?

Sara and Solron's relationship developed over time, which made it more believable than the standard 'one week' courtship you find so often in romance novels.

There's nothing I love better than a scarred heroine being brought back by a loving hero.My only complaint would be that it just wasn't long enough. It seemed that corners were cut to make things move along quicker. I would have loved to have seen Sara's interactions with her family more, not to mention an epilogue of some sort. But when it comes down to it, I got my sci-fi fix and finished with a smile on my face.

If you're a fan of Evangeline Anderson and Laurann Dohner you'll love Angela Castle.  She even has a couple of books for you shifter lovers. (Dragon Down Under and Tiger Mine)

*For those of you worried about non-con, NO worries, Sara's story does NOT include sexual torture.
