Taken By Her Mates (Interstellar Bride Program #4)

After being set up and found guilty of a crime she didn’t commit, Jessica volunteers for the Interstellar Bride Program to avoid a lengthy prison sentence. She is assigned to a prince, the heir to the throne of the powerful planet Prillon, but her future is left in doubt when the match is rejected by Prillon’s current ruler.

When his own father seeks to banish him and deny him his right to a mate, Prince Nial takes matters into his own hands. Accompanied by a battle-tested warrior who volunteers as his second, he sets out for Earth to take what is his, but upon his arrival he quickly discovers that the same horrifying enemies who once took him captive now hunt his mate as well.

Though believing she has been rejected by a mate she never even met stings more deeply than she would like to admit, Jessica does her best to focus on the dangerous task of bringing down the people who framed her. But before long, her world is turned upside down all over again when two huge, handsome aliens save her life and then inform her that she is their matched mate and they have come to Earth to claim her.

Jessica is far from ready to meekly submit, but she soon learns that her new mates expect to be obeyed and defiance will result in a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom. Despite her fury at such treatment, however, she cannot hide her arousal as she is stripped bare and thoroughly mastered by the fierce, dominant warriors. But when Prince Nial is forced to defend his birthright, will Jessica do what must be done to aid him, even if that means allowing his entire world to bear witness as she is taken by her mates?

Prince Nial is more than a little bit ticked off at his father. Tossing good warriors away because they survived the Hive was ludicrous. But now he’s taken things a bit too far. He’s rejected Nial’s right to a bride. With a little help from his cousin, Commander Deston, Nial intends to make things right.

You remember the old saying, “When it rains, it pours?” Jessica was having that kind of a day. First, she experienced the hottest dream she could have imagined. Then a planet’s ruler refused her mating to one of his warriors. Finally, since she had been accepted into the bride program, all of her possessions had been taken away. All she was left with the desire to make sure that those who did this to her, pay.

Nial and his second, Anders, were able to rescue Jessica from the Hive members hunting her. The initial plan was to take her to his cousin’s battlegroup but that was thwarted by his father. He could only transfer to the Colony. There he was able to persuade Jessica to put his color on. Then he got the news that changed everything. His father, the Prillon Prime, had been killed and the Ruling Council had called for Death Matches to determine the next Prime. Could he do what he needed to defend his birthright? Would Jessic do what she needed to do to support him?

This is such a great look at the Coalition. This is the first time there is mention of the Colony, which is where the warriors who had been “integrated” by the Hive and then rescued, are sent. After the description of Nial as a bit of a playboy, it was really nice to see a different side of him. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.

Claimed by Her Mates (Interstellar Bride Program #3)

I’d heard about the Interstellar Bride Program for over a year, knowing that most women who participated were prisoners seeking an alternative to a harsh prison sentence. Some, I’d learned, were volunteers, but none could return. Once matched to an alien warrior and sent off-planet to their mate, they were no longer citizens of Earth and could not return. At first, it had sounded scary and ridiculous. Who would volunteer to leave Earth? How bad could their lives be to do such a thing?

Now I knew. A woman’s life could turn very, very bad. I needed to be as far away from my fiancé as possible and I worried that there would be no place on Earth that would be far enough. He would find me, then…

At this point, all Leah knew was that she needed away, as far away as possible. Another planet sounded like a godsend to her. Volunteering for the Interstellar Bride Program seemed to be her best chance. She signed up and waited….

Drogran, Tor, and Lev were triplets separated at birth. Sent to live in different sectors, they were now the rulers of those sectors. Now in their thirties, the Regent had gathered them together at the neutral government island, Viken United. The plan? All three men were to mate the same woman and in doing so, sire a child of their combined DNA to once again unite the planet. To this end, Regent Bard had tricked the three men into submitting to IBP testing during a recent physical. Then the results were combined and sent into the Program. Now all that was needed was for a woman to match that combined submission.

Leah was shocked when she was asked to pick her mate out of a group of ment. “Proof of Connection” was what was required. After walking down the line of men, she was indeed able to pick her mate out. But now she’s being told that she was actually mated to 3 identical triplets? Things are getting more complicated by the minute! Will this plan work, and can they keep her safe?

Yet another wonderful planet full of hot guys! The descriptions and characters are wonderful, and just the right amount of spice to boot!

Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Program #2)

“Hannah lived that, from Anne’s point of view. And that experience is what drew her to you. Don’t be tender, Zane. Stop holding back. She’s a submissive, and she’s sensitive to your needs. She knows you’re not giving all of yourself. She can sense it the same way you know she’s unhappy and uncomfortable around you. But she doesn’t know what you want her to be, Zane. She needs you to be who you truly are; she needs to know the rules. She won’t give herself to you, she won’t love you, she won’t trust you until you bare your soul to her and let out the beast.”

Goodwin, Grace. Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Book 2) (p. 113). Stormy Night Publications. Kindle Edition.

Hannah belonged to a very small group, Earth women who actually volunteered to be a Bride. She did it to save her brother. Now that she had, she was very surprised at the planet she was matched to. Prillon brides lived on board the warships.

Zane Deston hadn’t wanted a bride. His mother was the one who submitted his information. However, now that she was on board ship, everything was different. The only problem was that she appeared to be so small. Surely someone so small would be too delicate to withstand his full passion. So he held back with her.

This is another great entry for this series. You gotta love the new race and world highlighted by this book. To have not one, but two hunky guys dedicated to you would be every woman’s dream. Not so sure I would appreciate the audience however!

Assigned A Mate (Interstellar Brides Program #1)

I’d been a well-respected doctor until I witnessed a murder behind a curtain in the hospital’s emergency department. Turned out, I was the only one who could identify the assassin. The killer’s family had immense wealth and powerful connections in both the world’s government and organized crime. Witness protection was the only chance of keeping me alive until I could identify the man in court. Going off-planet was the only way to ensure the family’s extensive reach wouldn’t harm me.

Regardless of the fact that my conviction was just a cover, as far as Earth’s justice system was concerned, I was a murderer. I was to be treated as such. This medical gown was plain gray prison garb, my wrist and ankles were both bound to a hard, unforgiving chair. I was out of options. I’d already gone through this a thousand times in my head. Survive. That’s what I had to do and there was no way to do that if I didn’t get away from Earth as quickly as possible.

Eva Day wasn’t sure about the whole set up. Witness Protection was supposed to keep her safe, but the idea they came up with was laughable. They changed her name and created a record for her as a murderess sentenced to life in prison. As a felon, she could volunteer for the Interstellar Bride Program and be whisked off planet quickly. A personal transport device, located behind one ear, would return her to Earth when her testimony was needed for court.

High Counselor Tark of Trion was eager to greet his bride. He’d waited patiently for her to wake up after the transport, but when an excessive amount of time passed, he brought in the doctor. His bride’s reaction to the doctor wasn’t exactly what he expected!

I put my free hand up to stop the motion. He steadied me as I tilted my head back, way back, to meet his gaze. “What… what are you going to do with me?”

His dark eyes searched my face, then moved lower down my body. I flushed, knowing he—and the others—could see everything.

“You are the first we have seen from Earth and I must have a closer look.” The doctor’s gaze roved over my body just as Tark’s had, but he made me feel… exposed and dirty. I knew that look. Lecherous men, it seemed, were not limited to Earth.

I moved to stand slightly behind Tark, using him as a shield. His scent lifted from his shirt and it was intoxicating. Clean, sharp and with a hint of something mysterious. Whatever it was, I liked it. Was it because we’d been matched?

And so we get our first look at the fascinating world of the Interstellar Bride Program. Well written, detailed descriptions, larger than life heroes, BBW heroines, what more could you ask for?
