"The Miner's Wife is
a story that will capture your attention
and keep it. With an intriguing plot,
engaging characters and explosive sex,
this story has it all. Hannah's background
is almost unbelievable. The quick and
powerful rise of the new Tiberius Group
has surprised everyone, especially the
women. Their antiquated views of women and
their place in society are in direct
opposition to what she's worked so hard
for all of her life. When she meets
Brutal, she expects him to treat her in
the same manner that her father and her
previous husband did. But he eventually
surprises her, showing her gentleness,
caring and support throughout the story
which she hadn't received from the men who
were supposed to care for her. Brutal is a
bio-genetically engineered man, who must
have sex in order to recharge his
batteries. I loved this! Brutal is
definitely all man, strong, sexy and a
hard worker. Not only does he need sex, he
gets a better charge from his partner's
satisfaction, and boy, does he satisfy!
Hannah and Brutal are highly combustible,
enjoying their sexual escapades and
explorations. But what I really liked
about Brutal was his caring attitude
toward Hannah. He allows her the
opportunity to work and show her
intelligence and believed in her when no
one else would. The pace of this story is
just right, telling about their
backgrounds then quickly moving to their
relationship. With a little danger from
Brutal's nemesis and a surprise from
Hannah's past, you won't find one minute
of boredom is this story. Add this one to
your must read list and keep on the lookout for the other Wives Tales!"
5 Angels: "Lara Santiago has
created a wonderful story mixed with
futuristic elements, uncertainty of ones
emotions, and a splash of danger from an
evil miner. Hannah is a feisty,
charismatic woman that is passionate and
has a personality that readers will love.
Brutal, although he can be very deadly,
offers readers a possessive and protective
man that is honorable regardless of the
arrangement between Hannah and him. The
chemistry between Brutal and Hannah is
explosive, mind-blowing, and quite
tantalizing to say the least. As the plot
intensifies, readers will be pleased with a
couple of surprises along the way. These
surprises will only make the readers love
Brutal more and cheer for Hannah to have
what she wants. The Miner’s Wife is
a wonderful story about finding love when
and where you aren’t looking for it!"
—Jessica, Fallen Angel
Tattoos: "The Miner’s Wife by Lara Santiago is a great book. I love the premise and plot.
I could not put the book down. There is action, suspense, and romance all combined to make a reader’s heart race.
The well developed characters grow as the story progresses. Brutal looks like a gruff rough miner but he has a heart of gold.
His tenderness and understanding towards Hannah started my heart to fluttering.
Hannah is a modern independent woman forced under the new world order’s thumb.
The determination and strength she possesses helps her succeed in her changing world.
The racy love scenes between Hannah and Brutal leave little to the imagination.
An instant attraction bonds these two lovers and propels them into a sensual world of desire and passion.
I would gladly live on another planet for a man like Brutal.
Ms. Santiago has created a vivid futuristic story for the romantic.
I can not wait for her next work." —Ophelia,
Hearts: The Romance Studio 2006 CAPA
Nominee. "This book is a never-ending
adventure, and readers will find
themselves wrapped up in the drama that
Brutal and Hannah create. Brutal lives up
to his name with a dark and sensual air
that readers will love. Hannah is a free
spirit who finds that maybe all men aren't
alike. The love scenes are so hot, the
pages almost burn with the heat. This is
the first book I have read by Lara
Santiago and Siren Publishing. I can
certainly say that I will be on the
lookout for more of this author's work in
The Romance Studio
Blue Ribbons: "The Miner's Wife
will take you into a
future where women are reduced to mere
possessions in a male society. Hannah’s
plight will have you empathizing with her
even as you realize how much Brutal truly
needs her, and not just for his sexual
desires either. They’re both wonderful
characters who are wronged by the very
people who should have cared for them. This story is powerfully moving and
truly a delight to read. I can’t
wait to read the other two books in The
Wives Tales series."
Dionne, Romance Junkies
4.5 Kisses: "Lara Santiago has a
refreshing and delightful writing style.
Not only is The Miner's Wife a very
creative story but her characters are
mature and well developed. I really
appreciated that while Hannah did not
embrace what happened to her, she didn't
place blame on Brutal, which allowed them
to have a sweet, fun, and healthy
relationship. The humor is perfectly
timed, as is the action and adventure. Not
only are the love scenes hot but they are
also sweet and full of emotion. I highly
recommend The Miner's Wife and look
forward to reading the other books in The
Wives Tales series!"
Two Lips Reviews
4.5 Stars: "The Miner’s
Wife is a science fiction story about
a future controlled by a corporation and
the archaic laws that they enforce
concerning women. It is a novel idea for a
story even though I think I would probably
be one of the first women to form a
rebellion against the nitwits. There was
considerable thought up into the universe
that Ms. Santiago has come up with. There
is a plausible explanation for the new
laws and how they affect the female
population. Ms. Santiago’s characters
are believable and very likable or
despicable depending on the character. The
love scenes for the most part are very,
very hot. Brutal turns out to be a very
gentle and caring lover when Hannah allows
him to be. I am interested in reading the
rest of the series to see if the women
really do take to these new laws [or] if
they rise up and stomp some bureaucrat’s

Erotic Romance Reviews
Unicorns: "Taking us into a world where
women are no more than property and sexual
tension relievers, this author pens an
interesting story of a couple brought
together under less than ideal
circumstances. Hannah [is] a woman after
my own heart even if she no longer has
rights in her country, because she still
shows spunk when she’s not fainting. Her
miner isn’t half bad either because from
the onset, he is willing to protect the
woman he initially sees as an energy
source and outlet for his needs. After
making the best of their situation, these
two become ideal partners in and out of
the bed. With its action, passion and
touching moments, readers will enjoy this
[first book in] The Wives Tales Trilogy."

4 Kisses: "The Miner’s Wife is Ms.
Santiago’s first foray into the scary
world of the Tiberius Group and a glimpse
into the future of ‘what if’? What if
extremism rules the day? What if American
women were to suddenly find themselves not
even second-class citizens, but little
more than chattel? Though her treatment of
the love story between Hannah and Brutal
was sweet and grew in the appropriate
places, it was my interest in the world
she creates that really made the story and
kept my interest. In future installments,
I hope to see characters actively involved
in overthrowing the tyranny they find
themselves living under. A very enjoyable
"I fell in love with
Brutal Blackthorn in The Miner’s Wife.
He was a big ole sweet man who tried to be
tough, but once he fell in love with
Hannah, she was his whole world and I
liked that. It made me all warm and fuzzy
inside that a hero as tough as Brutal
would become putty in Hannah’s hands. As
for Hannah, for having gone through what
she did, she was an extremely strong,
intelligent woman. She was in control of
Brutal without him even knowing it, and I
Wife is the first book I have read
written by Lara Santiago and it will not
be the last. The storyline kept me
spellbound and the romantic interludes of
the characters were extremely erotic. In
fact, I couldn’t put this book down
until I read the last word. Lucky for me,
there are two more books in Ms.
Santiago’s Wives Tales Series, The
Executive's Wife and The Lawman's
Wife, that I look forward to reading!
If you are a fan of futuristic books, or
even if you aren’t, The Miner’s
Wife is just a good, all-around read
that is totally satisfying!"

So Brutal readied himself to fight Erik, the biggest, meanest
miner on the off-world planet, for the right to marry a woman
temporarily. He’d fought bigger, meaner men in his colorful
past and beaten them easily. It was no competition. Brutal
felt confident this battle was already a victory for him, even
though both men were spurred on by lust.
Brutal even more so now because he had gotten close enough to
inhale her delectable fragrance while crouched next to her.
And she smelled incredible, not perfumed up like the others.
Possibly due to the unexpected shower she had received, but he
caught her natural scent and the light fragrance of her hair.
Need sex today, his libido commented, also responding
to her scent.
Brutal wanted her. Soon. Now. He hoped he could wait until he
got her back to his mine to take her for the first time.
Conjugal rights were the primary reason he was marrying. Just
like every other miner here.
“I’m going to knock you on your ass,” Erik mocked.
