Product Description

Out of this World...

Tess MacKenzie has always dreamed of taking her place among the stars, but racing through the galaxy is not quite what she had in mind. An aspiring singer, she's finally on the verge of her big break when she's abducted by the hottest alien she could have ever imagined. An alien who claims the fate of millions depends on her.

...and Into His!

Cohl Travers needs Tess. The warring Trakas are holding his father captive, threatening to kill him unless Cohl retrieves a legendary Amulet for them. In the entire universe, only one voice has the power to unlock the Amulet from its hidden chamber: Tess's. Cohl may have snatched her from Earth by force, but she must help him willingly if they are to survive the mission.

Convincing Tess to put her life on hold to help his people is the easy part. Resisting the desire to ask her to stay with him will be much harder...

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding romance, outsanding Sci-Fi 11 Sep 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Life is moving along rather bumpily for Tess Mackenzie. She does not have very high hopes. Plans for a singing career is heading in the right direction, she has her Darth-Vader in fur tomcat to love, her car is still running - barely - and she just was paid. Then Mr. Ugly-Mugger steps in her path demanding her money, and suddenly, life spins out of control. Fortunately, just as things are starting to get distressing, Tess is rescued. He is tall - very tall - dark and handsome. Oh, boy is he handsome! He is everything a woman could dream about - only one draw back: he is alien and he just kidnapped her! Tess knew with her luck there HAD to be something wrong with him!
Now hurtling through space, Tess awakens to a new sense of reality. Aliens DO exist - great they are Hunks in Space instead of ET or the Worm Men from Men in Black. Still, Tess is not too thrilled with the adventure. She has a cat to feed and a career on the edge of taking off, and while sexy space aliens bring to mind all sorts of questions, she would just as soon be returned to terra asap!
Cohl Travers, the sexy alien in question, has no intention of doing as Tess asks. He explains he abducted her for a reason - to save his father's life. He is a seeker, a finder of lost treasures (sort an Indiana Jones in space!). On a planet near to his, two brothers rule and war for control. One faction asked Cohl to find an amulet famed to bring peace and power to a ruler. He refused, so they kidnapped his father and are holding him hostage until Cohl delivers the lost treasure. Only, finding the amulet is just half the problem. He must have a singer with a precise pitch and quality of voice to sing a song to release the amulet from where it is magically held.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic futuristic plot with original elements 18 Aug 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A star ship captain, a prince, a robot and an abducted earth woman are the basic players in this futuristic romance. Cohl Travers has identified Tess MacKenzie’s voice as the element to save his father, who is incidentally the ruler of Cohl’s planet, and rather than drop in and explain things to Tess, he’s abducted her. Although shocked and unwilling initially, basically Tess comes around with the help of Cohl’s mother, and buys into the idea. Just in time to be abducted again by the baddie of the piece, who wants the amulet and the voice that will release and activate it for himself. Cohl takes off after Tess, who instinctively relies on him to do so. Fair maiden is saved by handsome adventurer, and now they’re in this thing together.
Yes, there’s a lot that is classic in this futuristic romance, but that it not to say that this tale gets tired. The action moves along at a good pace, there’s elements of danger throughout, and there is enough heat between Cohl and Tess to keep interest fresh. It’s not a groundbreaker, but it is a good example in the Futuristic style.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one that started it all. 8 July 2005
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Tess MacKenzie and her band were finally becoming well known. Their CD would soon hit the shelves. By the weekend, Tess should no longer have a money problem. But Tess wonders if she will live until then. She is rescued from a mugger only to be kidnapped by the man who rescued her. Could things possibly get worse? The answer is YES! The man who kidnapped her is an alien named Cohl, an extremely handsome alien at that. Even though Tess hates him for abducting her from Earth, she can't help but be attracted to him and understand why he did it.
Cohlman "Cohl" Trae Salle's home planet, Yre Gault, is in another quadrant of the galaxy. His father, Montral, has been kidnapped by a group called the Traka-Nor. They live on the northern hemisphere of the planet Trakas. The Traka-Sou reside on the southern hemisphere. The two hemispheres are ruled by brothers and are at war. Rommol, the leader of the north, holds Montral ransom. Cohl must locate and collect the Demisian Amulet to be exchanged for his father. Legend states that the amulet gives the possessor the ability to control their enemy. It is hidden in a secret chamber somewhere on Demisie, a planet that supposedly did not exist. Tess's voice is needed to unlock the amulet from its chamber. Only her voice has the exact range, pitch, and quality needed for success.
It all sounds bad, right? It gets worse, much worse. Cohl has yet to tell Tess who he really is and what dangers they must go through simply to reach the amulet's chamber.
***** The more I read from this author, the more I love her. Barry has an astounding talent for sucking in her readers and holding onto them tighter than Super Glue. And this is the first of the "Un" series. I've been reading them out of order, so I can tell you that you honestly do not have to read these in order to understand or enjoy them. Each one is a stand-alone tale. I can hardly wait to dive into the next. *****

IT'S POINTLESS TO TELL YOU WHAT THIS BOOK IS ALL ABOUT, AS THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS HAVE SAID IT WELL ENOUGH.
THIS IS MY REVIEW.
I HAVE JUST FINISHED READING UNEARTHED AND MY FIRST IMPRESSION OF THIS BOOK IS - WOW!!!!.
FABULOUS, UTTERLY FANTASTIC, GREAT FUN.
I LIKED THE IDEA OF THIS BOOK, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN GETS ABDUCTED BY A RATHER HANDSOME ALIEN, TO HELP SAVE HIS FATHER AND ULTIMATELY HIS PLANET.THEY OF COURSE FALL IN LOVE, SHE ADAPTS TO LIFE ON ANOTHER PLANET AND THEY BEAT THE BADDIES.
IT'S FULL OF TECHNO TALK,SPACE BABBLE AND LIKE, THERE'S SOME GREAT REFERENCES TO WELL KNOWN SCI-FI MOVIES IN THIS STORY, WHICH THE ALIEN HAS NO IDEA WHAT THEY MEAN.
IT'S NOT HIGH ON ANY REAL VIOLENCE,IT'S SOME WHAT FUNNY IN PLACES AND IT IS HIGHLY ENTERTAINING.
THIS IS ANEW AUTHOR FOR ME AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO READING NER NEXT NOVEL.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic futuristic romance! 6 Jun 2003
By Catherine Spangler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
UNEARTHED is a wonderful futuristic romance from a great new author. Being a writer of futuristic romances myself, I�m delighted to see more authors in the genre, especially when they�re as talented as Ms. Barry is. UNEARTHED is packed with action and adventure, steamy sensuality, and pure fun, yet Ms. Barry manages to delve into the deeper emotions of her characters. Tess McKenzie is a spunky earth woman who is kidnapped and spirited away to distant planets, all because her voice is the perfect match as a key to free up a magical amulet. Cohl Travers, the man who abducts her, is sinfully handsome and sexy, but also a man of honor and duty. Together, Tess and Cohl blaze a trail across the stars, battling the evil Traka-Sous and Traka-Nors, in a race to save Cohl�s father and his home planet. Laced with wondrous adventures, intriguing new worlds, and beautiful love scenes, UNEARTHED is UNforgettable. Buy it now, read and savor it, then put it on your keeper shelf so you can read it again and again.

Cohl Travers, the sexy alien in question, has no intention of doing as Tess asks. He explains he abducted her for a reason - to save his father's life. He is a seeker, a finder of lost treasures (sort an Indiana Jones in space!). On a planet near to his, two brothers rule and war for control. One faction asked Cohl to find an amulet famed to bring peace and power to a ruler. He refused, so they kidnapped his father and are holding him hostage until Cohl delivers the lost treasure. Only, finding the amulet is just half the problem. He must have a singer with a precise pitch and quality of voice to sing a song to release the amulet from where it is magically held. And Tess is that singer, the only one in the whole universe with the perfect voice.
Grudgingly, Tess finally agrees to help with fetching the amulet, but without Cohl telling her how dangerous the trek could be or that if she fails to sing the song precisely it will result in her death. Oh, well, leave it to a male to neglect 'small details' such as your life hanging by the thread. Nice to know some things do not change even though you are flying through space. However, Tess soon comes to realize the biggest threat is to her heart!
Tess is so charming, so 'down to earth'. She does not want much, just to get back to her cat and her singing career, but she cannot stop herself from being drawn to Cohl. Budding hopes of a romance are nearly dashed when she learns Cohl is a runaway prince from the planet near the warring one. But the heart does not listen. Cohl regrets he is forcing Tess to help, but has little choice with his father's life in the balance. But kidnapping Tess brings a lot of complications. The opposition has found out he is going for the amulet and will do anything to stop him, including kidnapping and killing Tess. Worse, he is feeling really guilty for taking Tess from her life. And despite growing attraction, an attraction he fears is love, he will not stop until his father is freed, risking his life and Tess' in the quest.
Tess' and Cohl's adventure is so charming, so steamy, one of those that linger in the mind and heart long after the book has been put down. Ms. Barry shows a brilliance for humour and timing, an uncanny ability to add that touch to a tense situation without it slipping over into farce. She creates strong characters that leap off the page and takes your hand, pulling you into a super adventure, fraught with space aliens, personal robots with an attitude, tense battles, and a quest that rivals the search for the Holy Grail.
Barry, a first time author, shows control, a strong voice and the magical ability to conjure marvelous characters. She 'sees' her alien worlds so she is able to make the readers see them, experience them as well. Unearthed is first class romance, but it is also first class SCI-FI.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!! 6 Jun 2003
By T. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read UNEARTHED in one day, and loved everything about it. The story is fast-paced with lots of action, romance, and plot to keep the reader interested and looking for more. What I look for in a sci-fi is realism: I want to believe that the story could take place (with a little imagination), and that I could actually go to the worlds presented. I felt that Ms. Barry handled the other worlds beautifully, so that I could be swept away by the depth of the characters and the well-developed plot.
I can't wait for her next book to come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Science Fiction Adventure w/Plenty of Romance! 18 July 2003
By Silmarwen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tess MacKenzie is trying her hardest to make it to the big time. She put her singing/songwriting on hold for years to help her parents run their business, but now it is her time to succeed. So when Cohl Travers, a sexy alien and his robot, Pitz, kidnap her, Tess is less than pleased. She can't believe that Cohl needs her voice to find some amulet on a long deserted planet to save the life of his father. Things like this just don't happen to her!
Cohl Travers is the best treasure hunter in the galaxy, but he refused to find the amulet for the Trakas, knowing that the warring brothers would use the amulet's power to destroy their people. However, when the Traka-Sou kidnap his father, they have made Cohl an offer he cannot refuse. When he finally found the perfect voice match to sing the amulet, he let nothing stand in his way to bring Tess up to his spaceship. Cohl was determined not to like the beautiful Tess, after all, she may die trying to get the amulet, and, if she lives, she will be returning to Earth, but he is irresistibly drawn to her. Too bad every other person in the vicinity feels the same way!
Tess has no idea what she is getting herself in for, but she refuses to help Cohl, until they stop for repairs on Cohl's planet and finds out that Cohl is the prince and heir to the throne. She is persuaded by the love that all of the citizens feel for Cohl and his family to try and retrieve the amulet to save this beautiful world. Still, she cannot understand why Cohl denies his birthright and wanders around space getting into all kinds of dangerous situtations. Doesn't he realize how much the people love him and he loves them? As time goes by and Tess spends more and more time with Cohl as they escape from enemies, ferret out spies and hunt down the amulet, she begins to dread the time when Cohl will return her to Earth - but how can she stay if he refuses to admit he has feelings for her?
This is a great science fiction story with plenty of romance thrown in. I loved the characters and felt that they struck a good balance between being stubborn, but not stupid and willing to compromise. There was a great relationship that developed between Tess and Cohl and there are some hot and steamy scenes between the two of them. C.J. Barry's descriptions of the worlds in outer space were great and all of the alien worlds were unique. The plot was fast paced, the book was well written, the romance was hot - this is definitely an author to keep an eye out for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling and Superb 6 Jun 2003
By Cheri L. Farnsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you want a book to read at the beach this summer, buy this one, but find a cool place in the shade! It's a HOT, fun science fiction romance, and you won't want to put it down until you're done reading it (another reason to sit in the shade :-). There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with this book--which is amazing for someone so new to the scene--but EVERYTHING was right. When LoveSpell signed on this new author, they really knew what they were doing. I can't wait to see what C.J. Barry comes out with next!
