Gahnin, a Ssedez general, hasn't had a woman since his first mate died a century ago. And since his kind can live for a thousand years, he's still bound by traditional mourning. If he breaks mourning, he could lose his position in the Ssedez military. His friends and family. Everything.

That means no falling in love. No lust. No sex. For another century.

Then he's ordered to guard Assura, a human woman and military special operative, on a planet whose atmosphere causes a sexual arousal so fierce, it drives people insane if it isn't satisfied.

Even though he tries to keep Assura at arm's length, he's hooked. Forbidden desire called to life by a human, the same species who killed his first mate. Assura needs his body if she is going to live. But if he gives in to his passion, it could destroy him.

Each book in the Planet of Desire series is STANDALONE:
*Toxic Desire
*Captive Desire

I received an advance reading copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Omg...I'm sold on the whole sexy alien romance obsession that other romance readers have been raving about. Captive Desire was such an addicting book. I couldn't put it down!!

Captive Desire works as a standalone... ...more

By Lauren November 24, 2018

I think this is being billed more as erotica than straight romance, though it does have an HEA, so I’m just going to call it a romance. A completely bonkers bananapants romance, but still – I have a particular soft spot for scifi romance, and this really hit the mark, plus it’s got the enemies-to... ...more

This book. *fans self*

Captive Desire is the second in Robin Lovett's Planet of Desire series of erotic sci-fi romances. Each book stands alone and I can confirm that I really enjoyed this one without having yet read the first, Toxic Desire. The premise is that a ship of rebel humans has been shot... ...more

This packed the heat and then some! I'm going to have to read the first book in the series asap but I didn't feel lost not having read it. Captive Desire is erotic sci-fi romance and it kicked off with quite a bang.

Assura and Gahnin cross paths once Assura's ship is shot down by Gahnin's team. Ar... ...more

This is actually a love story with beings from other planets and humans. The Ssedez have captured a human ship and Gahnin has been charged to watch over the fragile human Assura who has to be treated. Gahnin hates the humans as they are responsible for his mates death but something about her call... ...more

Hot, hot, HOT! This book started with a bang, the attraction between Assura and Gahnin palpable from the very start.

So loved this book! I read the books in order, and though they are standalone, I did appreciate the background I already had from the previous book! You won't regret reading these books! 😁 ...more

By Joanna November 21, 2018

This was an amazing example of fated mates without the hero giving off problematic vibes. It was incredibly hot and erotic and I love an author who isn’t afraid to use the words fuck and cunt. ...more

By Frannie November 29, 2018

A super sensuous and foreboding landscape is, again, no match for human and Ssedez in Robin Lovett's next installment of her Planet of Desire series. Assura owns her desire for her enemy as Gahnin fights his desire for his charge. But when forced into the Sex Games arena, they have as much to pro... ...more

First time reading this author as well as a first for me in the sci-fi erotica scene. With that being said, I’m so happy this was the author I chose to introduce me to a whole new level of fantasy erotica.

I am hooked!

Sex planets, enemies to lovers, bound to fated mates, and a plot line that had... ...more
