    About “Catherine Miller”

    1. Catherine Miller

      I am an American by birth and situation, whose heart forever remains in Great Britain I derive much inspiration from my holidays abroad, and my writing is heavily influenced by the delights of the English and Scottish countryside My author s journey began in several reimaginings of The Phantom of the Opera where I explore happier endings for our beloved Erik hopefully aided by my degrees in psychology I have a love for fantasy and paranormal romance, as well as the pleasure of a thrilling murder mystery each of which have begun to creep into my writerly pursuits When I am not consumed with a novel, I enjoy lavishing affection on my two cats, and working in historical costume design.

    1. I love Catherine Miller's character driven Science Fiction with a long slow burn. The world building is very good and the ache of grief and loss is this book is compelling. The hero and heroine are both so wounded it hard to like them at first because they hold so much of themselves as private but as they heal and come to love each other, we come to love and know them too.If you liked Mercy, the first book in this series, you should like this one as well. It has similar troupes of an arranged ma [...]


    2. I enjoyed the world-building in this book, but was always hopeful for a little more detail regarding the world and the physiology of the Deridian natives. The cultural aspect is well developed and has interesting concepts and originality. This is an extremely personal book of two solitary people finding each other through a less than ideal situation. This is more a contemplative book of emotions rather than action-adventure. I do enjoy this author's writing style; it flows seamlessly and despite [...]


    3. Great sci fi romance. I really felt like both the hero and heroine where fully realized characters. Told totally in the POV of the heroine who had to figure out what was going on as the story went on. I loved both of them. There is some willing suspension of disbelief as you have to buy in to the fact that there are so many different sentient races on this one planet but once over that hump it's a great story.


    4. Whew, this author is on a roll with this series. I loved the first, and this one just about measures up!


    5. Trade was just as good as the first book. The humans were able to leave Mercy just before the slavers arrived. They think they've found a new home and a race of people that are wiling to give them land. There is a catch. All treaties with the Marzon must be through a marriage. Neither Heather or Machrus want to be married but they do it for their people. I liked that there wasn't any insta-lust. Both Heather / Renna and Machrus had issues to overcome.I liked both the main characters. This was a [...]


    6. Where to startTrade is a bit of a rough read. It is slow going at times and the main characters seem to be battling their way through depression.If you aren't able to handle a heroine who is struggling to find her self-worth then this novel isn't for you. Renna is damaged, she's been hurt, used and abandoned. I for one have a tremendous amount of respect for her.The author chose to tackle some heavy subject matter in this book.1. The loss of a significant other(Sometimes the fear of loving and l [...]


    7. This book could be entitled "Debbie Downer Gets Married" and it'd be about right. The heroine is such a sad, low self-esteem having, self-doubting, fearful, tentative, passive and negative person that it was really painful and depressing to be inside her head. Her husband wasn't much better. They were unhappy for almost the entire book, and then things improved some close to the end when they realized they loved each other.It was not fun to read. The heroine was raised in an abusive and dysfunct [...]


    8. If you get frustrated when the main characters don't talk to each other, make assumptions that are wrong and don't talk to each other, get upset with the other person and don't talk to each other (you get where I'm going with this) then don't read this book. I had such high hopes after book one Mercy and this did not live up to them. I started off the book disliking Heather (Renna). She stuck her head in the sand, didn't want to listen, ask questions or find out what was happening. Then she got [...]


    9. Love this seriesThis series actually made me read the authors other works. I mean, I've never even watched phantom of the opera and here I was reading fanfic. Her writing is that good. These stories are cute slow burn SciFi romances. I've read all three multiple times and would recommend. Miller writes strong but emotionally wounded heroines and steady, patient beta males. If you are looking for a pushy alpha type hero this isn't the series for you. There is some delicate subject matter but is h [...]


    10. Loved it even more than the first!This was a very lovely story of two people from very different walks of life coming together for duty but finding love! It is realistic and raw! I like how the reader is able to move through the emotions of the characters with ease. I did not want to rush ahead to the conclusion not did I get bored with the steps they needed to talk to meet each other through their hurt past! At times I really felt like crying for the things they went through and the bond really [...]


    11. Oh wow! I thought I caught all the feels in book 1 There were more to catch here in this one. This one is in the same world as the first book, Mercy, but takes place in a different area/community group. Again, not an insta-love, and I have to give the author mad props for all the emoting I did reading this. Many tears, many smiles, many many different emotions all over the place. So good!


    12. This was a unique sci-fi alien romance. The character depth was well executed. I really enjoyed the heroine. One of my few complaints was the hero. I quickly tired of him "sighing" and "grunting" instead of conversing. That seemed to be all that he did. After awhile it became tiresome. It did make for a slow burning and developing romance. This was the first book I've read by this writer, but I will certainly check out more of her work.


    13. GoodI enjoyed this book. The plot and characters are both intriguing. I do wish the author was a bit more descriptive about certain details, like the characters ages. That fact is oddly skirted around. Maybe to let the reader picture the characters however they choose?


    14. SweetThis book is a slow burning romance that soothe the soul. These too pretty much start from now hung in their relationship and build it up. But it takes time for it to get good but so worth it
