Format: Paperback
Valerie Thornhill is reluctantly jogging in the hopes of losing 25 pounds before her mother's scheduled visit in 2 weeks when she is sucked into a space ship; The Dark Queen. As this is somewhat a usual side effect when they travel through a wormhole close to Earth, the alien Others have perfected the stay of the humans they accidentally abduct during their journey home and try to give them as normal a life as possible. Unfortunately an unusual side effect on the human men during their unintended space travel is that they require sex every couple of months or they die, and as they outnumber the women considerably, they are expected to share a wife.

When Valerie is told by a blue skinned alien she is expected to marry between 4 and 7 men and sexually service all of them regularly for the next 3 years she's convinced she's either in a seriously intense dream or a coma. Selecting the handsome Hauser, she is quickly introduced to the other 4 men in his group and finds herself having mind blowing sex with each of them in rapid succession.

Hauser, Johnny, Frasier, Mark and Dominick are all very different in both looks and personalities, and although Valerie is attracted to each of them and enjoys sleeping with them all, she finds herself falling deeply in love with one of them. Yet Valerie has to deal with the fact that when she is returned to Earth she will retain no memory of her time on an alien space ship or of the man she loves and he in turn will not remember her.

There is no group sex in this book despite the multitude of partners available, instead Valerie has plenty of hot alone time with each man twice every month as per her contractual obligation; although she does start breaking the rules by spending her free time with one of them.

Amazing futuristic romance with a big twist! 19 Oct. 2008
By Bookaholics Reviewer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Menagerie by Lara Santiago
Oversize trade paperback release date: July 23, 2008
4 Stars

This book is an amazing futuristic romance with a big twist! The entire premise is a fun and highly erotic ride.

Valerie Thornhill is accidentally transported onto a spaceship where she must become a sex slave to 5 different men for 3 years! Each man has a very different personality and all of them are very attractive.

Valerie cannot help falling in love with one of the men! She is torn by her `duty' and any preference in her behavior which can undo the companionship of the group.

The different men and Valerie's growing dilemma make for HOT reading. It was surprising to discover which male Valerie gradually grew to love and her anguish over feelings she cannot control. I was touched by the relationship with her preferred lover. At first he seemed one-dimensional, but as Valerie grew to care for him, so did I!

Lara Santiago pulls you into her world. Her writing is deceptively clever as I never saw the surprise ending! If you are looking for a quick read with entertaining turns, this is the book. Another satisfying futuristic romance by Lara Santiago!

Menagerie 11 Sept. 2008
By M. Nix - Published on
Format: Paperback
Valerie Thornhill's day can't get any worse. First she wakes up and finds herself looking at a man who is blue. Then, Mr. Blue had the audacity to tell her that she has to have sex with five different men in order to save their lives. Valerie has been abducted by aliens. Taken to their world, she is told that for the duration of her time on the spaceship she is to service five men sexually for five years. If she decides not to have sex with the men who pick her, they could die. She figures she will make a schedule and go about her duties without emotion. She doesn't count on the fact that she will want and desire each individual man, and she should, equally. Therein lies Valerie's problem. One of the men has become more than a scheduled liaison -- he has become the man she loves.

Good heavens above Menagerie made me squirm! From beginning to end I wanted to BE Valerie. Each male in her harem was deserving of love and I found myself individually loving every one of them. Add in the plot twist at the end and my heart smiled for a story well told. Menagerie is unlike any alien book I have ever read and the heat is out of this world. I will read Menagerie over and over.

Surprising Ending...Like Finding Out Darth Vader was really Luke's Father 27 Oct. 2008
By SocialReader - Published on
Format: Paperback
Even though menage doesn't take me by surprise anymore -I've read so many erotic titles that I'm admittedly jaded, but Menagerie made this cynical soul sit up and take notice!

It was refreshing to see five males with five distinct personalities and ALL of them alpha! I cannot tell you how many MATE menage plots I've read and become turned off when one of the males comes off slightly beta or too sensitive.

Menagerie was nicely paced, the futuristic world well developed and the plot out of the norm. So much so that I couldn't put it down after cracking the first page...and thank goodness I didn't because I would have never guessed the surprising TWIST at the end. In my humble opinion it was like the time when I found out Darth Vader was really Luke's father!

Liked It... 30 Oct. 2008
By S Walker - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is my first book by Lara Santiago. I liked it. Well written and easy to follow. One reviewer compared her to Emma Holly and said that this book is simple compared to her stuff. I read alot of Emma Holly and that is actually what I enjoyed about the book, it was written well but not to over the top. And loads of different types of characaters, which was refreshing. There is a place for each of those types of books, over the top characters and more "human" characters. And I enjoy both.

Menagerie 7 Jun. 2009
By Kelly - Published on
Valerie Thornhill was out jogging. It was something she absolutely hated to do under any circumstance, but if she was to lose any weight, she had to do it, and according to her mother, it had to happen. Out of nowhere she hears gunfire erupt when jogging near the road, and the next thing she remembers is waking up in an unfamiliar place. She feels certain that she is in the middle of a very good dream especially when she hears she must have sex regularly with five different men. When Valerie meets her men, she is starting to believe her dream is in fact a form of reality in which she is no longer on earth. Hauser, Johnny, Frasier, Mark, and Dominick are beyond Val's wildest dreams. All of her men captivate her. They are all so different, but yet she is drawn to them all. Dominick is very large and imposing. While he made her nervous and a little frightened, Val felt drawn to him also.

Valerie was promised to these men for three years, and as they all got used to the arrangement, she found herself getting more deeply involved with each of them. Since she was sexually inexperienced, Val was learning more about herself and her men than she ever thought possible. Against all rules set forth for all of them, she found herself falling for one of her men. She was still wildly attracted to them all, but couldn't help the feelings developing for her special one. The guilt started setting in that she was somehow shortchanging her men, and when she started waking in the middle of the night screaming, Val knew something had to give.

I am not usually interested in futuristic stories, but decided to give this one a chance, and I am glad I did. It is a clever, humorous, and well-written story that grabs your attention. Valerie is a voluptuous woman that always felt like she wasn't good enough, but she blossoms under the love and attention of five very sexy loving men.
