Nice read-once. Multi-author anthology with the three stories on the theme of 'fated' mates. All of them are mildly futuristic, other planets and spaceships appear, but generally have little to do with the story. Love Me Tomorrow By Sally Painter is the exception - Earth was invaded by alien lizard-like creatures who are the ultimate 'consumers' and have been consuming Earth's natural resources ever since. The remnants of the human population are hiding underground. On a foray aboveground the heroine captures the hero, a psychic humanoid alien, and takes him back underground to be interrogated. He is overjoyed since he has found his Kismet, soul mate, and is busy making sure she feels it too. Through a series of sadly unbelievable events they have a lot of hot sexy mind melds plus lots of hot sex and they save the world. Charlotte Boyett-Compo's Secrets of the Wind mixes new and old; it starts in an futuristic city complete with hovercraft hot rods and ends up in a kingdom where they choose to ride horses instead. Heroine is ostensibly hired as a bodyguard for the Prince by the Queen but is actually 'bait' to get her son to wed rather than just bed... The author throws in a lot of weirdly spelled words which imply words in current use such as Caitliceachs/Catholics, Protastnuach/Protestant and dochtuir/doctor. In Warlord's Destiny By Delilah Devlin the barbarian prince was promised the fair flower of the royal house as the price for saving the kingdom. But her family plays 'bait and switch' by marrying him off to the OTHER princess. Of course he likes her MUCH better, the curves her people sneered at as chunky he recognizes as very, very sexy! The best part was the 'First Bedding' which ended up involving four other very limber people [at least one of which swung both ways:] and a VERY large bed.

"Fated Mates" contains three stories by Delilah Devlin, Sally Painter, and Charlotte Boyett-Compo. The only author I was really familiar with was Delilah Devlin. I was pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed all three stories.

"Love Me Tomorrow" by Sally Painter is a futuristic tale of humans fighting to regain their planet. The story tells what happens when a female Earthling warrior captures what she assumes is an ally of her enemy, but turns out to be her fated mate.

"Secrets of the Wind" by Charlotte Boyett-Compo has a more historical feel in the tale of a female bodyguard chosen to protect a wild Prince. What she doesn't know is that she has also been selected to be his mate!

"Warlord's Destiny" by Delilah Devlin. Although Mora has been given in marriage to secure protection for her world, she's not willing to settle. She WILL teach her barbarian how to love.

Definately erotica, but also very interesting in the ways each author approaches relationship building when both partners are strong. ( )

4 1/2 stars - TOP PICK - Romantic Times BOOKclub
Nominated 2005 RT Reviewers' Choice Award Best Paranormal Erotic Romance.

“Painter’s “Love Me Tomorrow,” has human warrior leader Shalene Courers trying to protect what remains of Earth from the Demrons, a lizard race from space. When she captures Mecah, who appears to be helping the Demrons, a she discovers he’s not what she thought he’d be. Shalene recognizes the passion between them, but Mecah knows she’s his kismet mate. If they can stay alive, he might convince her. Humor adds enjoyment to this adventure.

“This excellent anthology of top writers reads like the wind. All of the stories are strong, with wonderful heroes and heroines and hot sex. Plus, each has an interesting twist that elevates them above the average.” Page Traynor, TOP PICK!!!

"Rarely does an anthology over deliver on all of its promises but Fated Mates has done just that. It has brought together three exceptionally talented authors to form Fated Mates. If you like your heroines strong and your heroes even stronger this is a definite buy to add to your collection. This will be an anthology that you will want to read again and again. Bear in mind that although the stories are engrossing and keep you turning the page, these stories are not for the faint of heart. The emotions and eroticism make for some explosive moments. I only wish each story would have been longer. I hope that in the future each author revisits the characters and gives us follow-ups. Tetrik, Micah and Ruan are three Alpha’s that you won’t easily forget." Raashema ( )
