Keeper of the Flame by Stephanie Burke
Published by Loose Id Genres: Fantasy, Interracial, Paranormal
Flame is from the planet Testrios, a malicious female dominated world where men only serve as slaves. After his wife is murdered, Flame manages to escape to planet Earth before he and his unborn children could receive the same outcome.
Days away from her wedding, Kendall Moore catches her fiancé in bed with sister. Distraught, Kendall just wants to go into hiding and lick her wounds. But, as fate would have it, Kendall’s world is about to change forever when she fines a very pregnant male stranger on her door step in labor.
I found Keeper of the Flame an interesting twister in a bizarrely appealing sort of way. Just like Kendall, I was wondering how Flame would give birth. I applaud, Stephanie Burke for making the twins’ births believable and realistic. As you can imagine the twins stole the storyline. They are so cute, adorable, and highly intelligent. Often times I found myself bursting with laughter at Flame and Kendall’s bout at parenting.
In addition to the parenthood, Keeper of the Flame entails betrayal, a murder mystery, and heated sexual encounters. There are times where I wish Kendall would have been a bit more harsh with her ex and her sister; however, she still is able to give them a piece of her mind for their disloyalty and the hurtfulness they caused her.
While, Flame and Kendall’s courtship happened rather quickly, I do admire their total commitment, dedication, and willingness to protect one another during chaotic times such as Kendall’s outlandish sister/ex incidents and the deadly threats against Flame/twins. On the whole, a very good read.
