However, it isn’t quite the escape that she expected. Infinity City is a dangerous place for humans, especially human women. But Alkorin is different to all the aliens she has met so far in Infinity City, however, although he's kind and funny he can’t quite hide his lethal edge. A lethal edge that comes in handy when his past comes back fully loaded and willing to kill anyone in their way with Sam firmly in their firing line. I love a sci fi alien romance adventure! You get the excitement of bad guys waving their guns around alongside some sexy alien canoodling. Luckily, Tiffany Roberts has written such an adventure for us with Shielded Heart. It was an action packed romantic romp with the added benefit of having an alien hero. I really liked Alkorin, not only because he was hot – check out the illustration at the beginning of the book! – but because he had a wicked sense of humour. Some of my favourite moments in the book was less the romance between him and Sam, but banter from the bromance with his bestie/bodyguard. Sam, the heroine, was a little more of a miss for me, I didn’t dislike her, but in comparison to Alkorin’s big personality, she faded into the background. Nevertheless, it was adorable seeing them together. This book also opened the world up a little more and introduced us to more characters who will be hopefully be the heroes and heroines of future books. So, although the romance was perhaps not my favourite one by Roberts, I did enjoy the book as an overall addition to this series. If you want an alien sci fi romance with plenty of action and adventure in it, this series is a good place to start. I am now eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.❤ ♡ Don't want to miss any of our posts? Subscribe to our blog by email! ♡ ❤

I'll say this now- the cover? love it The story? It has a lot of potential, and I like the set up and premise, but the characters were a little off for me. So this story picks up where the last one, with our forger Alkorin aka Arcanthus, going about his buisness after the mess he was left with in the first book. But something is off with him. He is being moody and withdrawn- and it's all because, and in his words, he "wants a Terran, a female Terran". So what does he do? He starts looking in the database to find one- and he does. He finds our h, Samantha, who is new to the Infinite City and quite out of her element. No only is she painfully shy, she is also terrified of her new neighbor, and she's afraid of the dangers lurking around every corner of her new home. But a 'chance' meeting with a handsome sedhi might put them both in more danger than they can handle. spoiler rant: So, my biggest problem with the book- as I stated Arcanthus wanted a Terran female- so he just went out and got himself one. No, he didn't say he wanted somebody to be in a relationship with, not somebody to fall in love with.... He just wanted a Terran of his own, and it didn't really matter who- as long as she was human, pretty, and young I guess. Yeah, he just selects her out of a line up. But hey, In the FIRST search he finds one! Also, she just so happens so be his mate- lucky that. Then he proceeds to stalk her all the while thinking "mine, mine, mine" Sam even calls this behavior out later by saying "She waited for the flare of anger that should’ve risen in her gut; Arcanthus had selected Sam from her identification file, stalked her, lied to her, and sent some of his men to keep an eye on her. None of that was okay, was it? None of that was right. And yet…she wasn’t upset, wasn’t angry, wasn’t scared." Well if she's not upset I shouldn't be right? I guess its just this kind of behavior is only acceptable because she finds him hot...If he was gross she'd be running the other way. I keep thinking this book should be called "I Fell For My Stalker." There were other things that bothered me, but that was the main one. I did like the story though, so if your interested in a quick steamy sci-fi its on kindle unlimited rn- so I'd suggest to read it if you liked the first one.

    It was okay. I remember liking and being more intrigued by the hero in the previous book. Even so, he was way more interesting in this book than the heroine. The heroine didn't seem fully developed to me, and she was kind of boring. She was a woman healing from abuse. That sums her up; other descriptors were minor or added or to provide another aspect, but they weren't strong or impactful to me. "A woman healing from abuse moves to new planet and falls in love with an alien" I also hate to say t It was okay. I remember liking and being more intrigued by the hero in the previous book.

    DNF at 23%. I was really excited to read this book because of the commissioned art on the author’s site. Arc is hot, and there’s no denying that. But all the heroine does is thirsting over the alien while constantly being rescued. Unfortunately, I’m not interested enough to continue.

    This was so cute and I loved the drawing of the H in the beginning. It definitely had a big drop in the action in the middle of the book. All the stars are for Arcanthus.

    "JESUS this book is so fricking good it's so......oh...wait, it's over? But waitwait it can't be over yet awwwwww." -Actual real time quote from 11 minutes ago. As with the ending of all Tiffany Roberts books, Wah. The Infinite City universe has officially drawn me in and I am in no way, shape or form, ready to peace out from this joint. But, I've found that to be the case in almost all the world's of Robert's wonderful books I've had the fortune to read(which is every book now so YAY). So what ke "JESUS this book is so fricking good it's so......oh...wait, it's over? But waitwait it can't be over yet awwwwww." -Actual real time quote from 11 minutes ago.

But, I've found that to be the case in almost all the world's of Robert's wonderful books I've had the fortune to read(which is every book now so YAY). So what keeps bringing me back you might ask? (or you might not but whatevs, you get to hear why anyway.) The worlds: Now we've gone from the bottom of an alien ocean, an Earth that looks alot like what I imagined the dustbowl appeared like, an island of mythical rejects, a harem-encouraged planet, and now to the infinite city Arthos. Seriously, the world building, is amazing. Not only is it detailed, but it's completely it's own entity (meaning its not Like other worlds you've seen or heard about). Im so impressed with Arthos; how its seemingly two separate cities, one of light, one of neon and dark below. I would totally be down to catch the next shuttle there...... aside from all the horrible aliens and Terran/human trafficking and slavery....Okay..maybe I'll catch the...next shuttle to Arthos. The Aliens & Romance: Ma. Now listen here. I can totally get down with some vanilla romance. It's like a nice cup of tea in the morning. But Sometimes tea just isn't gonna cut it. Do your cry? Say "whats wrong with me why do I need tails and horns?" Nah Boo. Embrace it. Sometimes you need that Trenty Mocha Fudge BrownieBatter Sprinkle Sugar bomb to fit your bill. In short: love. but with aliens. It's weird, it's strange, sometime its WAITWuuut.., but hot damn if im not addicted to it. We met Arcanthus in the last story, and I was totally on board and intrigued. He was one of those guys you just want to demand gets a HEA; whether that includes pleading letters to the author or full blown picket lines outside their residence, eh, it's up to you. He's got three eyes, horns, a tail, and a...coughcough...lets call it a retractable area down low, if ya get what I mean. All in all he hits all my checkpoints. But on top of that, he's a freakin sweet guy. He want's to feel that connection, and he want's to build up his mate. Which brings me to, Sam. Samantha was a close call for me. I got nervous when we played up the abuse backround, ran to alien planet, met an alien, then she's getting self defence training, but i think they stayed really true to Sam's character. She was scared, scarred and alone in a strange world having to completely start a new life. I liked how she kept more or less to herself and GREW into the person she was meant to be, RATHER than stumbling into the H falling to her knees and becoming his love slave (which after years of abuse COME ON no they wouldnt). I've read way to many romances that excuse and essentially forget the abuse, but this one I think kept Sam true to her timid nature and I ended up really enjoying her growth. And together. BOOM POW CHICKA WOW. Check them steamy fireworks. Hells yeah. It was steamy, dreamy and ooooh so good. Worlds. Aliens. Romance. And a story I don't feel like I've read a million times before and can predict where everything is going. Hell yeah. So, where am i. What year is it. Am i okay. Short answer? Nope. But just like I do after ending the rest of the TR books, it's time to be hitten the ole dusty trail. But I'll certainly be back. AND FOR DRAKKAL'S BOOK NO LESS YASSSSSSSSS "You show me everyday, in everything you do. Every time you look at me. Every little touch, every smile, every moment. As jealous as I become when other males look at you, I know you are mine, just as I know I am yours" --he moved his hand down, settling it over her heart-- " here. There is much in this universe that we made out, Samantha, but you and me? We are one of the few certainties." 4.89 who-knew-the-vast-array-of-creative-uses-for-tails stars ☆

Alkorin/Arcanthus from the first novel was a terrific male lead. Charming, sexy in a demony kind of way and so so witty. A male hiding from his past and thrust back into actually living when he sees a human woman named Samantha. He recognizes her as his mate almost right away. He's a warrior, a tech wizard and a male who truly cares for those he considers his. Sam, was also running from her past, an abusive ex. She was bent a bit bruised but absolutely not broken! Together these two teach each other and those around them how to heal and become stronger than they ever thought possible. I love the secondary cast of characters and I'm looking forward to a sexy Drakkal's story that's coming up next. Once again I'm left oddly satisfied and a bit on the edge of my seat with anticipation for the next in the series.💖😍

There’s no telling when the universe might decide to take it away.” I can’t wait to hear Drakkal’s story as one can tell he has loved and lost.

    Fun and steamy and you can’t put it down! If you enjoy Tiffany Roberts’ books, you will love this one! It was fun, it was steamy, and towards the end the action kept me actually on the edge of my seat! You will absolutely adore the cocky hero and you will be so proud of how the heroine grows. Did I mention the humor interwoven throughout that had me laughing out loud? Just go check out this book, you will love it!

    I really like that this book wasn’t full of “Me Alpha, you make babies.” I’m getting about dang tired of it. Another thing I really enjoyed is that the male characters were not all powerful. The female character did not go from meek and shy to kicka** in the blink of an eye. One particular good thing I liked is that the male character did not force the female character into moving past her trauma. He gave her time and space to grow, he let her set the pace.

    DNF beyond 64% Wasn’t feeling the love between these two characters. Just seemed like a bland connection between them. It was hard to hold my interest. Didn’t enjoy the intimate scenes in this one, they were better in book one. I stopped at 64% and I was going to go back to it. But finally today I just said ehh and tossed it back. Will look for more in this series and hope they’re better.

    This was straight-up the wildest alien romance I've read (in terms of smut/anatomy). I don't have any words... this was a trip. I started skimming near the end because I didn't care for the plot as much, but that's not atypical given I read these strictly for the romance.

    Okay. First off, the undercity of Arthos is a wonderful, terrible, hot mess of a place and I kinda love it. It's dangerous and deadly and Sam is completely out of her element with everything she does there while Arcanthus/Alkorin is the exact opposite. He thrives in the undercity and he's confident in his place in it.

Sam is new to Arthos and she desperately wants to put her past behind her, but Arthos isn't very kind to timid humans. She's floundering in a big way and Arc (who is the embodiment of confident flamboyance) steps in to make things better for her. They are different as two beings can be and when things happen THEY HAPPEN. (Also, aliens with non-standard parts are fantastic. *thumbs up*) The downside of Arc swooping in is that bad things happen when the two of them end up on some bad guy's radar. Because, you know, Arc is confidently flamboyant and he doesn't know when to step back and stay in the shadows (something which his head of security laments repeatedly). (Speaking of whom, DRAK! You rock, man.) In other words, Arc is over-the-top, Sam is understated, yet they work. The family Arc has built around him is awesome and the bad guys totally deserve every bit of destruction the crew rains down on them. *double thumbs up* -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    4.6 stars. This was so good! I loved getting to know more about Arcanthus(aka Alkorin) This book had slightly less dark themes. Sam was abused by someone on earth and she has some lingering fears and doubts because of that. But we never read any of the abuse on page and she doesn’t describe much of it to Arc. There was also slightly less violence than the first book. There were little fights here and there throughout but only one big fight and it seemed far less complex than when Tenthil fought 4.6 stars.

She turns out to be such a badass! Completely overcoming her fears and using her past trauma to fuel her strength. I fucking love when FMCs do that. It’s so satisfying. I really enjoyed reading this and I can’t wait to see who next. I think it’s Drakkal and I’m excited to see who catches his eye.

    I was bored. Didn't connect with the characters and therefore not the romance. I kept waiting for something about this story to grab, and it just didn't happen. Samantha isn't a bad heroine. I didn't find her annoying at all. She's not weak, just fragile. And there's something nice about a heroine who has suffered sexual abuse to rediscover pleasure and sex. But other than that... there just wasn't anything interesting to her? Arc was way less eccentric than I hoped he'd be. Felt kinda average a I was bored.

A criticism I also had for the first book's MMC. At least his alien design was more fun. Though, I don't agree with the people who put this on the "very inhuman hero" list. He's still pretty humanoid despite the horns, third eye, and tail. So yeah, I give up. DNF at 50%.

As Alkorin and Sam begin their relationship, they find that there is a lot to learn , from Both sides. And isn't that 1\2 the fun ?? This book was full of stupendous action , and realistic fighting scenes ! It was fast paced, but still , the romance was in the air !!!

    KINDLE UNLIMITED 💯 I liked Arc's character in the first book as he was cocky and flirtatious so I was glad he got his own story. Sam & Arc together were a perfect couple!

    What to say about this book? Aside from it being my favorite Tiffany Roberts book yet. First and foremost the cover is beautiful. My favorite cover this year and possibly within the past decade. I love the colors and the vibrancy and of course the sexiness. So my second point is how beautifully character-driven the book is. It helps that I fell madly for the male protagonist in the previous book Silent Lucidity. I loved his arrogant, self-deprecating personality.

It helps that I fell madly for the male protagonist in the previous book Silent Lucidity. I loved his arrogant, self-deprecating personality. I also love that he pursued the female lead Sam without the should-I, shouldn't-I drama. The atmosphere in Shielded Heart had a decidedly anime vibe to it as opposed to Silent Lucidity. It frequently had me calling to mind cityscape scenes from Cowboy Bebop and Appleseed. Bestill my heart, if that doesn't get me where I live. Going on the favorites shelf.

    "It's a book about banging an alien." At the 25% mark, that was the review I was pretty confident I was going to give with a three star rating attached. The summary is a very good indicator of how schlocky and cheesy the story is going to be--the goal is to get these two characters to bang and that is it. There is no sense in giving this story an in-depth critique. It has its goal and it meets it. However, I ended up bumping the story down to two-stars because around 66% I wasn't motivated to ke "It's a book about banging an alien."

However, I ended up bumping the story down to two-stars because around 66% I wasn't motivated to keep reading (I did, but I was skimming). The characters had already hooked up, any relationship problems that could be explored were glossed over, and the villain was a one-dimensional shadowy figure that I didn't care about. The story could have ended at the two-third point and I would have been satisfied.

    Dark days for a earthling (terran) This is the second book in this series but it is not as dark as the first book but still has plenty of violence and gore. Samantha moves to another planet to get away from her ex but jumps out of the frying pan and into the fire. She is a little fish on shark infested water and she has blood training behind her. Thankfully Arc is obsessed with her and keeps her safe. Unfortunately Arc brings his enemies down on her to get to him.

    Awesome!!! This book was amazing! The world Tiffany Roberts created is all high power tech, neon lights, hovercrafts and warrior aliens it makes me want to go there. It was truly action packed every fight scene keep me on my toes and the love oh my gosh all the feels. The relationship between the two main characters was seriously beautiful and I love how they had all these deep connections with the secondary characters as well. Great book, well written, very impressed once again. Can't wait for t Awesome!!! This book was amazing!
