Ly-san-ter Series by Johanna Lindsey

Today's Throwback Thursday features the first fantasy romance series that I ever read. The Ly-san-ter series by Johanna Lindsey is what happens when a 1990 bodice ripper style romance meets alien romance; and it-is-glorious! If you are a fan of old school romances and are also a little of a fantasy geek as I am, this is a must read series. Aliens who are mostly human, but are physically larger and stronger than humans. They have the technology for space travel, yet they still embrace their somewhat antiquated societal structures. These are pure old school romance goodness. Hot, strong, slightly barbaric men who meet their match in women who are not taking things lying down. (Well, only the good stuff lying down!) The women in these novels are not doormats, so you don't have to leave all of your feminist sensibilities by the wayside. Each book can be read as standalone reads, but they are all connected. Book 1 is the parents' story, book 2 is the daughter's story, and book 3 is the son's story. 

Happy Reading!

Warriors's Woman


Experienced in combat but not in love, the beautiful, untouched Amazon flies with Martha, her wise-cracking, free-thinking computer, to a world where warriors reigns supreme - and into the arms of the one man she can never hope to vanquish: the bronzed barbarian Challen Ly-San-Ter.

A magnificent creature of raw yet disciplined desires, the muscle-bound primitive succeeds where no puny Kystran male had before - igniting a raging fire within Tedra that must be extinguished before she can even think of saving her enslaved world...


In search of a true and gentle love, fiery Shanelle Ly-San-Ter flees the lustful advances of the blue-eyed barbarian who has been chosen as her lifemate, confused and frightened by the fevered yearnings the handsome brute has awakened in her innocent soul.

A warrior, virile and magnificent Falon Vanyer is overwhelmed with intense desire for the spirited beauty who has vowed never to be his. And though the heavens themselves conspire against him, he will pursue his sensuous prize, and brave any peril to conquer and claim the keeper of his heart.


**A note for this one: This is my least favorite of the three, but it is still enjoyable. HOWEVER the audio is AWFUL. The narrator actually made me almost dislike the story. I had to quit listening about thirty minutes into it!**

Stunning statuesque Brittany Callaghan isn't used to seeing Nordic gods in her tiny California town. But when the spectacular blond Viking—whose name is Dalden—turns up at her doorstep, Brittany knows her dream man is very real. Dalden claims to be a barbarian warrior—since Brittany's passion has been running red–hot since she first saw him, the sexy giant can fancy himself anything he pleases!The truth is a very rude awakening—for Dalden is exactly what he claims to be: a warrior to the depths of his soul from a place where the women always obey. Intelligent, independent Brittany isn't about to be subservient to any male—not even one who's everything she ever wanted in a lover. But the proud, powerful barbarian is accustomed to fighting for what he wants—and winning. And what her wants most of all . . . is Brittany.
