Centauri Twilight (Centauri Series #2) by Cynthia Woolf

Lara Danexx suffered years of torment at the hands of the evil and twisted Ranzon Slavarien. But she escaped and raised an army of rebels to destroy him. Victory is within her grasp when an unwelcome intruder hunts her down and spins wild tales of her lost family and royal blood. This arrogant invader stirs her long dead emotions and threatens to ruin all of her plans. She can’t allow herself to desire his touch, or believe his lies…too much is at stake.

General Anton Coridian gave his word that he would find his beloved queen’s long lost sister, Princess Jondalara. He expects a pampered princess. Instead he finds a guerilla leader with an army of loyal cut-throats and rogues at her back. Every instinct he has demands that she is his lifemate and he must steal her away to safety. But the dark determination and pain in her eyes reminds him of his own tortured past. She offers him redemption and the chance to right an unspeakable wrong. Destiny must be laughing, because now he’s fallen in love with a woman who will stop at nothing to free her people…even if it means sacrificing herself. Anton is determined to join her, both in bed and in battle. Now he must convince Lara that his love can save not just her life, but her battered heart.

 Reviewer: Dolce Amore

Centauri Twilight picks up immediately after the events of the first book. Anton has promised his sister-in-law and ex fiancée that he will find her sister and bring her back, where she belongs … to the palace, as princess  of planet Centauri. Then he can retire and give himself up to his solitude and regret. So much has been taken from him and he shares a bitter history with the Slaverian family and is eager to bring them down at all costs.

Needing a reason to go on, he takes on this mission to remove him from the sight of the happy couple, away from all the memories and the guilt. 

 Princess Jondalara died years ago, suffering terrible torture by the ruler of the planet Delaz and Lara had been born. Her torturer was the half-brother of the man who tortured Anton. As survivors and lifemates, Anton and Lara must struggle to overcome their mental and emotional trauma while they try to free the slaves from Delaz. 

 Although I enjoyed reading this book more then the previous one, I didn’t succeed in feeling any connection with the characters. 4 stars
