Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Kylie Scott presents two stand-alone novellas in this must-listen collection.

Colonist's Wife: She'll run to the far corners of space to avoid her violent history, hide her true identity, and pass herself off as a mail-order bride. But no one can escape their past forever. And as for her new husband...well, he's nothing like she expected.

Heart's a Mess: Former wild child Violet has vowed to get her life in order. To find a good job and settle down. To open a savings account and stop falling for the wrong men. But whatever happens, to most definitely not accidentally sleep with her hot, newly single boss.

fast paced good stories

2 good books for the price of 1 by one of my favorite authors. the only down side is I would of like a epilogue I would like more of the colonists wife happy after. and more on how Violent and Alex relationship went.

Signature Kylie Scott

Colonist’s Wife: Really like this story of Jo/Loiusa, who hides as a contract bride on a mining station out by Jupiter’s moons. She arrives to find that her new husband, Gabriel, has been killed, and she’s now married to Adam by contract.
Chapter 10: Heart’s a Mess
Violet and Alex find out it’s more than a one night stand.
If you like Kylie Scott, you’ll like these stories, written in her signature sexy, quirky style.
I really like Elena Wolfe’s narration.
Recommend. Worth a full credit.

Great romance story

I enjoyed both romance stories but I like the first story the best it was well written and developed. The first story was about a women trying to hide from a drug lord and entered a o be a alien bride. It had hot scenes,action and alpha male. The second book didn't care for has much. The heroine was to whiney for me. The narration is ok

TOO SHORT!

Both of these stories were great. My only complaint is that they were far too short! They both left me wanting to know more.

Loved both books, wish they were longer

The first book Colonist’s Wife was incredible. I wish it was so much longer so I could love the characters and their story more. I haven’t read a story based on another place et before, and that was odd, but not off-putting.
The second story Heart’s a Mess was good. Lots of steamy sex, but so dang short. I would have loved a longer book of this story as well.
All in all I enjoyed both books and although it was nice to have a quick read and get 2 stories in, I wanted more. Great narration too!

both books are a five-star read!!

the first book The Colonist wife was a very good read the first book is a Sci-Fi Adventure well written but I feel that it was way too short I think that the author could have expanded this book but still a very good read a very fast paced Adventure the second book is situated in a bar present day which was very good as well both books were really quick but very well-thought-out and written the narrator was definitely the start of both of these books, andi was Sublime definitely worth the credit!

Mixed bag

The first story, Colonist’s Wife, was a decent short story, and could have been developed into a good, longer novel. The second story was basically straight porn with no real plot or character development. I fast forwarded through almost that whole story it had so much graphic & pointless sex in it. The narrator was good.

Not bad. But short

These stories were quick listens. Not too much character development but entertaining to say the least. I liked both equally
