Product Description

Product Description

Edinburgh is a city that's slow to change. Which is why in 2061, Professor Lachlan Mackenzie still lives there. He hasn't changed in the 1000 years since he and his shipmates abandoned ship, forsaken by the Vampyras millions of light years away and left to fend for themselves, feeding off the blood of humans.

Lachlan is drawn to sexy psychologist Kate the moment he steps into her office. He wants to protect her and help her overcome her PTSD. Ignoring the warning signs of his growing attraction he agrees to be her cabin mate on the journey to the new colony on Mars. But when Kate discovers him feeding on bagged blood, all hell breaks loose. Has he been set up by the Vampyr council leader? Will Kate ever forgive his lies? And how does he explain what he is to his long lost daughter who he meets on their journey?

As Kate starts to trust, outside forces threaten to rip them apart. Will Lachlan lose the only woman he's ever truly bonded with?

This book contains scenes of an adult nature.

About the Author

Em was born and brought up in the Central Belt of Scotland and still lives there. She was told as a child she had an over active imagination--as if that is a bad thing. She's traded her dreams of owning her own island, just like George in the Famous Five to hoping to meet her own Mr Darcy one day. But her imagination remains the same.

HASH(0x9b2b8f0c) out of 5 stars A Very Gripping Story! Feb. 12 2016
By Itsy Bitsy Book Bits - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Discovered is a science fiction novel about well vamprys but just wait before you roll your eyes because I know what you are all thinking not another vampire novel how many times can they write the same type over and over again right this must be another young adult novel for the pop culture. But it’s not actually while it does revolve around vamprys it also gives it a new refreshing twist that will have you wanting to read more and more into it and the characters are full of life also. Let me tell you a little about them there is Kate she is a young thirty something professor of psychology she has signed up to join a team who is going to mars to start a colony. She is a little worried as to going because she suffers from PTSD after having lost her father in a ship crash when she was 12 and being stuck in the ship with his body for 17 hours, enough to make anyone crack right? But it’s been quite a few years she feels she is up to the task at hand and is excited to be given the chance to be one of the first humans to go to mars to see the colony rise. She meets professor Lachlan Mackenzie who will be joining her on her journey to mars. She is unaware of Mr. Mackenzie to sate though he and his colleague Meg are an alien species that landed on earth over a million years ago when there ship unexpectedly crashed and stranded them on earth. You will follow along as they travel the three weeks to mars and learn what the true nature of the vamprys are and their history also feel the joy and excitement as Kate finds out about Lachlan and starts to fall head over hills for him. And be gripped by the tragedy of finding his estranged daughter has married a rather abusive man and the trials that follow as he brings destruction to the mars colony. It’s a very gripping story but also not for the bashful as it does contain a lot of hot a steamy scene but don't just take my words for it dip your toes in and take a look for yourself I hope you find it as enjoying as I did.

HASH(0x9abc2fc0) out of 5 stars 5 Amazing & Refreshing Stars!! Dec 27 2015
By LJ Nelson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was excited to get stuck into this book following a recommendation from a friend. It’s the perfect blend of Sci-Fi, PNR and Erotica with a healthy dose of humour thrown in. I have never read anything like it and I was engrossed from beginning to end.

The year is 2061 and we’re just about to set off on a mission to Mars for 2 years. I mean….seriously?! Come on, I may have squee’d at that bit lol.

Only it’s not just humans who want the mission to succeed – the Vampyrs who crash landed on Earth in 1006 are desperate for success as well. You try surviving on planet for all that time with a race not as technically advanced as yourselves. It’s enough to drive you mad!!

The story follows two of the mission recruits: Vampyr, Professor Lachlan Mackenzie and Psychologist & human, Doctor Kate Maxwell. The attraction between these two is instantaneous but Lachlan is hesitant to act on it for fear of his secret being revealed. Add to which, he can’t face the prospect of losing someone else he’s come to care about by outliving them.

Kate is not without her own demons and struggles with PTSD following a crash in space when she was twelve. Kate & Lachlan initially butt heads over her suitability for the mission given her history.

Yet fate or should I say Meg, Head of the Vampyr Council, has other ideas and our two find themselves roomies for the journey ahead. Can Lachlan keep his secret and ignore the mounting sexual tension? What do you think? All I’ll say is; Lachlan’s got some moves ;)

Throw in a long-lost daughter, intriguing secondary characters and you know you’ve got something amazing!

I loved how the story was set in Scotland and the author’s attention to detail especially with the historical & Vampyr lore aspects. More layers to get your teeth stuck in to!!

I just adored these two and how Kate makes Lachlan realise he’s deserving of love:

“One day you’ll look in the mirror and see the remarkable man I see, and you’ll understand why I love you.”

I can’t wait for book 2 to see what mischief Meg gets herself into.

HASH(0x9aac47d4) out of 5 stars Fun, Sassy and Sensual - A fab start to a new series! Dec 15 2015
By Tina Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Em Taylor’s Discovered is a fun, sassy and sensual read which pairs a sexy space Vampyr/university professor Lachlan MacKenzie with human Psychologist Kate Masters. Set in the future, in Edinburgh, in space and on Mars, it will appeal to readers of paranormal romance and sci-fi romance alike. It is a world where humans are still unaware of the existence of an alien species, Vampyrs, who have been living amongst them for hundreds of years since becoming stranded on Earth.

I loved how the attraction between Lachlan and Kate is so instantaneous. However, their relationship is far from plain sailing due not least to Lachlan’s reticence to get involved with a human again on account of unfortunate experiences in his past. There are a number of misunderstandings and some hilarious scenes as the pair circle around each other even before they embark on their mission to Mars.

Lachlan is one sexy Vampyr - he has looks and brains and manages to combine old world charm with an outlook which is not out of place in the world of 2061 when the novel is set. He tries not to give into his attraction to Kate as he wants to protect her from what his true nature is, lest he frightens her. Nonetheless, sharing quarters on board ship inevitably leads to some intimate scenes and the sexual tension and mayhem increase and the inevitable happens! Of course initially Kate has no ideas that Lachlan is an alien, least of all a Vampyr and she is suitably shocked when this comes to light: cue a great deal of soul searching amongst some sizzling love-making scenes as to what their future together will be! The read contains a great deal of humour, but also touches on some dark issues from both Lachlan’s and Kate’s past.

I really enjoyed the premise of the novel, that of aliens having lived amongst us for centuries, giving rise to the vampire myths. The novel contains a lot of humour, in particular the character of Meg, the leader of the Vampyr Council, and her interactions with both Kate and Lachlan were priceless! If Lachlan comes across as a little world-weary from his long life as a Vampyr, Meg is positively jaded and I am curious to know exactly what she is plotting and if she too will find her other half!

I recommend Discovered to readers of sci-fi and paranormal romance. Fans of Lindsay Sands Argeneau Vampire series and Evangeline Anderson’s Brides of the Kindred series will especially love this novel. Readers who up until now are only familiar with Em Taylor's Regency Romances may also wish to indulge. It is a fab start to what promises to be an addictive series. Please note a copy of this novel was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

HASH(0x9ab4d288) out of 5 stars Discover "Discovered" Feb. 10 2016
By Cat's Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Discovered" by Em Taylor. So, I've read several of Ms. Taylor's works previously. Mostly her historical romances which I have truly enjoyed. Honestly, I was a bit apprehensive about this one when I read the blurb. I wasn't 100% sure where this would lead and how Ms. Taylor would pull it off. But, pull it off she did! This story has adventure and romance and even some humorous parts too. I loved Lachlan! Yes, he's a super sexy vamp,but he's had some rough times in his past. I liked Kate as well - she knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go for it. Both are strong characters and independent. The two together are awesome. The secondary characters were enjoyable too - looking forward to their stories next, hopefully. This one is definetly a paranormal fantasty romance but Ms. Taylor makes it work. While obviously not 100% believable, I felt right at home with the scenes - be it Scotland or space! For an enjoyable read that takes you on an adventure through time and beyond Earth, be sure to discover "Discovered"! (received copy for honest review)

HASH(0x9aaca15c) out of 5 stars Even if sci-fi/fantasy isn't necessarily your thing... Jan. 1 2016
By kytten - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book from a community on Facebook and the excerpt posted immediately grabbed my interest. I came here to read through the sample provided and found that the sci-fi portion of the book wasn't what I normally read. However, the sample was as well done as the original bit I saw posted and I figured at 2.99 for more than 350 pages, I pretty much couldn't go wrong. So I went ahead and purchased it this morning. I finished it in roughly 13 hours. I normally read pretty fast, but rarely am I interested enough in a book to read nearly straight through for 13 hours, only stopping long enough for dinner and trips to the bathroom. Other reviewers have covered explanations of the book so I'll just finish by saying I'm looking forward to the next book in this series and in the meantime will be looking at other books from this author as well. So, even if sci-fi/fantasy isn't necessarily your thing, if humor and sassiness and sensuality is, this book will be a good one for you.
