Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita Valorn must adapt to the dark life as a slave. Her survival hinges on it.

Braita is a fighter. She demands her freedom most of all. And this slave is willing to use her own tricks to get what she wants. Including her men...



Cold Mark is book one in the Mark series by Scarlett Dawn.

I was looking for a sexy alien romance and what I got was one Hot Mess!! I’m not even sure what kept me engrossed and reading it until the end.

Our heroine Brita is 18, thrown into a barbaric world, with no real freedom, and her existence depends on the men of Triaz.

OMG I hate teenagers. The main reasons I dislike them and especially reading about them is that they make stupid decisions, don’t think, and have zero life experience. So, Brita had zero motivation for her actions and all of her actions where stupid.

Then we have a love triangle with two sets of two’s… Uhh, one set is her Soul and the other well I just didn’t know what they where, until the end. Are you confused? I am! To me I thought that Soul meant soul mates, but here it’s different, so I was confused and never truly grabbed the concept of what a Soul is. I was like whats the point, if she doesn’t end up with her Soul (mates).

The intimacy was clean, very little, not erotic, and no true menage.

Cold Mark was just one confusing hot mess. This book was not for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

Rated: 2 Stars

  1. This does sound like it is a mess. I don’t mind menage, but hum, doesn’t sound very good. I hope your next book is better.

    • I was so confused throughout and then the menage was not what I would consider menage. I think menage is when you have both the guys together penetrating the girl, not one goes to town then the other has his turn. My next book that I picked u after this was much better. Thank’s for stoping in.

  2. Oh, goodness! I saw the tag of sci-fi erotic romance, and thought NICE, but ick! Thanks for the review!

    • I know when I picked this up I was like Sci-Fi Erotic Romance too, but OMG it was a cluster F. I couldn’t believe I actually finished it, with how confusing and messed up it was. Thank’s for stoping by Jen.
