This story may not have Richard and Nicole per se in it, but they are defiantly there. Neeka and Braedon is the spitting image of Richard and Nicole. This was an exciting romantic read with lots of surprises and action in it. The storyline was fantastic!
Belterra is a planet divided. Each section has a leader and their own village of followers. Each group has their own belief,s, and laws to follow. You stay within your clan. This has been going on for centuries.
But Neeka, the Lord Daughter of the Warrior Clan, loves Braedon, Lord of the Soldier Clan. Braedon comes and sweeps Neeka off her feet and takes her back to his land to live with him. Neeka, a medicine woman, wins over the Soldier Clan and is welcomed.
The Science Lord, Seth, hates all the clans and wants to rid the planet of them and run the planet as he sees fit. He kidnaps Neeka and makes her a slave to him and puts the royal guards in cells to starve. Braedon and the rest of his men rescue them and leave baby Ana with her Father Seth and Braendon’s Mother Betta to raise her.
Neeka and Braendon have more than their share of problems together as a couple. They are both pig-headed and have their owns ways. They seem to always find their way back to each other, just like Richard and Nicole.
Full of mystery, suspense, and action, you will have many, many surprises along the way. My mouth was left open many times throughout the book. Carol Ann Kauffman is an amazing writer!
A pleasant and satisfactory ending …
The story centered around a planet, Belterra, divided into four sectors and separated by job description and class as well as laws that forbid intermarriage and allowed for very little interaction between sectors. It was a story of two soul mates, Neeka and Braedon, trying to maintain a relationship even though they were from different sectors of the planet. I loved both of the characters and their idiosyncrasies and humanity — they often let their egos interfere with their true love, as we all do at times. The ending was satisfactory and resolved to my liking.
