Cyborg’s Secret Baby (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 7)

He wanted the fries AND the shake!!!

Atlan Warlord Jorik guards the Coalition Fleet’s Processing Center on Earth, protecting warriors and brides without mercy or distraction…until he sees Gabriela. She is everything the beast within him craves. Soft. Curved. Unafraid. He dreams of courting her properly, wooing her into accepting his beast’s claim, and making her his—body and soul. Danger strikes and his beast takes control—resulting in his immediate removal from Earth. From Gabriela.

Gabriela fell in love with an alien Warlord who fought to save her life, then disappeared, only to learn he was later killed in a battle with the Hive. She moves on with her life as best she can, with one beautiful reminder of their time together. A baby.

When she learns Jorik isn’t dead, but banished to the Colony, she and the baby are sent to find him. The problem? He’s not just contaminated, he’s been newly matched by the Interstellar Brides Program. And not to her.

Excerpt:

I wanted the fries and the shake.

My beast agreed. The primitive side of me had awakened the first day I saw her, not because of her delectable curves, but because of her scent. Each day when she walked past on her way to work, we caught her unique sweetness in the air. Cookies and vanilla. I knew of neither of those Earth things before my arrival here a few months ago, but my beast really liked them. In our visits to her store, man and beast had become addicted to the taste of both. My mouth watered, wondering if she’d be as sweet tasting as her ice cream… everywhere.

Grab the next Galaxan romance between a sexy warrior and his fiery mate

“I don’t know what you mean.” Riley coughed to hide her embarrassment.

Gerri took a sip from her drink. “Of course, you do. You forget, I know when people are meant. Jag is meant for you. He asked me to find him a match, too, Riley.” Gerri stared at her pointedly. “You. He asked me to find you and you asked me to match you. I’ve brought you two together, and trust me, Jag will rock your world no matter what galaxy it’s in.”

“Trust you?” Riley scoffed. “Trust me! He calls me little mouse, Gerri!”

She eyed Riley with a spreading smile. “Then it’s about time we taught the mouse to roar.”

Attention is something Riley Parks usually shies away from, but when she finds herself on a shifter planet in a distant galaxy, attention is exactly what she’s getting. Especially from one smokin’ hot hunk of a man. Jag. The man sends her body into heat and her mind to a scramble whenever he’s near, but she’s not having it. No way. A little taste might not hurt, though, right?

Royal prince, warrior, and womanizer, Jag Kasaval has his sights set on Riley. She turns his world upside down and his inner lion is clawing to claim her. Not used to rejection, he’s willing to do anything to get his mate. What he didn’t expect was a feisty hellcat waiting to be unleashed beneath her quiet exterior.

Riley and Jag are thrown together to help plan a royal wedding and coronation. She refuses to admit Jag is exactly the man she wants, even if matchmaker Gerri Wilder says it’s in the cards. In the midst of palace intrigue, Riley’s swept up in scandal and danger that drags her beyond the Galaxa she’s come to know. With her life in the balance, Jag will have to find her before it’s too late or lose her forever.

Riley and Jag are two of a kind, in a way! He has been playing the field until now, but seeing Riley changes everything! The Last thing Riley wants is a playboy. Geri insists that they belong together, and we all know that Geri is always right!

Rogue Cyborg (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 6)

Makarios of Kronos is a rebel, a smuggler who reports to no one, not even those on Rogue 5. But one betrayal sends him to a Coalition brig, and to a fate worse than death—capture by the Hive. He escapes but exchanges one prison for another. He now lives on the Colony, contaminated and deemed a risk. He’ll do anything to regain his freedom, including agree to a bargain with a beautiful, cunning warrior with secrets of her own.

Gwendolyn Fernandez volunteered to defend Earth from the Hive menace. For four years, she was a valued member of Coalition ReCon, until the Hive caught up with her, and a strange Nexus creature took special interest in her integration.

Gwen escaped with super-human strength and a will to live that cannot be broken, until the governor of the Colony demands she choose a mate. A bargain with Makarios seems so simple until he conquers her in a way no other has—body and soul—yet the Hive Nexus who wanted her for himself won’t take no for an answer.

I love the fact that a woman has finally been taken by the Hive and been rescued. This is such a fabulous story. I can’t wait for the next one in this story line!

Discover a brand new race of Alpha males ready to find their mates in a dangerous warrior planet. Sassy women traveling with Gerri Wilder are in for the journey of a lifetime and a mate that will love them through the galaxy. Are you ready?

Ivy muttered to herself. “I can if I try hard enough.” She scanned Gerri’s note again and the matchmaker’s words: We need to talk. Wiggling a finger beneath the letter’s triangular flap, Ivy frowned. “Yeah, we need to talk. No shit, Gerri Sherlock Wilder.” A heavy thud jerked Ivy’s eyes toward her front door. “I’m not a detective, dear, though I do like a man who smokes a pipe, especially if his pipe is well-endowed, if you know what I mean.” The stylish older woman winked from the open door, bending to pick up her heavy purse from where she dropped it to gain Ivy’s attention. “And yes, we do need to talk. It’s why I dropped by.”

Ivy Grimaldi can’t stand change. Ever. But change is something she’s had to deal with a lot lately. Like when her cousin Cassandra moved away to start a new life, baby and all. That all changes when Gerri Wilder shows up at her door with a letter from her cousin. Cassie wants her to come visit. Sure, why not? There’s just one problem. Cassie lives on another planet. A far-the-heck-away planet, with her hotter than hell shifter mate.

Vander Kasval, King of the shifter warrior planet Galaxa, has his own problems with change. A lead by example kind of a king, he’s between a rock and a hard place. He needs to find a mate to help put an end to a brewing civil war. None of this would be happening if not for a plague affecting only the females of his planet. His warriors and the men of the Palladian Capitol are ready to riot. Vander reluctantly agrees to send for matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. If she can find a match for him and his men, then his world might be saved.

Ivy agrees to go, if only to make sure Cassie’s okay. Oh, alright, and to maybe find an intergalactic hookup for herself in the process. In a planet full of big, bad, sexy shifters, anything’s possible, right? Ivy’s in for the time of her life in a planet of unimaginable beauty and dangers she had no idea existed. But Ivy isn’t one to sit idly by and let something happen. With two new friends, they’re about to take Galaxa by storm.

So Funny! There were times when I couldn’t stop snickering. This couple is definitely one for the record books. That initial meeting was something else.

Cyborg Fever (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 5)

I didn’t need a man telling me what I could or could not do. I was not ready to settle down and be a baby machine for an alien when there were people out there who needed me, people I could save.

The way I hadn’t been able to save my parents.

Goodwin, Grace. Cyborg Fever (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 5) (p. 8). Kindle Edition.

Warlord Anghar survives hell as a captive of the evil Hive. Convinced he will never break free, he chooses death over dishonor. When the Coalition ReCon Team sent to kill him frees him instead, he begins the long, tortuous journey back to a true Atlan, a warrior proud of his beast, of his service.

But no amount of honor, of bravery, or strength of will can save Angh from a life alone, banished with the other “contaminated” warriors on The Colony. And no amount of prayer to the gods will save him when the fever in his blood grows beyond his will to control – and the Atlan Mating Fever steals his final shards of belief.

Imprisoned, awaiting execution, one hope is left; a woman brave enough to tame his beast – and strong enough to fight the demons inside both his head and his heart. Because he may have escaped the Hive…but they aren’t finished with him yet.

Unexpected! I remember Anghar from the previous story about Seth, Dorian and Chloe. It was so good to see them interacting with Kira and Anghar. This is fantastic!

Deal Breaker (Heart of the Nebula Book 2)

Destiny declared I would be queen of a world I’d never known.

Have you ever fallen for four perfect guys only to find out they were aliens and, wait for it, newsflash, so are you? Yeah, me neither. At least until I did. Just when I decided I’d rather skip the ride to the stars for life on Earth, my best friend died in my arms and I went a little crazy.

I woke to darkness.

I used to think getting up to go to work every day and paying my bills was hard work, but nothing could have prepared me for the challenges ahead. While my heart had chosen Reese, Briggs, Goran, and Dalton, vengeance consumed my mind. Vengeance for my best friend, vengeance for the men I loved and vengeance for me—because I hadn’t wanted this fight.

Destiny said I’d be queen? Fine, then destiny can bite my enemies in the ass.

Excerpt of Deal Breaker by Heather Long and Rebecca Royce:

The sense of danger, of knowing what I did next would forever alter my future? It was back.

And I was stuck in the dark.

Grace wouldn’t be able to rescue me this time. No one stood just outside the door, ready to swoop in and save me. Not Reese. Not Briggs. Not Goran. Not Dalton. Even the sense of them was gone. No, I was on my own.

If I wanted to be saved, I had to do it myself.

The trouble was I had no idea where I was or what happened. A rumble of an engine beneath me was a constant feeling, like I was on a boat, but I doubted it was a sea vessel. I was in a windowless room, and no one had come to see me. I was an alien, at least on Earth, and those who were out to get me wanted to deny me a throne I didn’t want or care to have. I rubbed my eyes. I was on a spaceship to somewhere.

Grace was dead. She wouldn’t be waiting outside the door. And my loves—all four of them—I didn’t know what had happened to them either. I had no memory from losing it in an explosion of energy to waking up in this darkness. My anger was the same—pulsing, all consuming—but the rest of my existence altered so completely, I doubted I’d recognize it even if I could see anything in this room.

I rose to my feet, pleased I could stand straight since the pitch-blackness made it impossible for me to tell where the ceiling was. As I had the first time I tried this, I raised a hand over my head and one out to the side. I’d found a wall and used that wall as my guide—not that it got me anywhere.

A grinding noise jerked me around. It was the first sound to penetrate the gloom beyond that of my own voice and ragged breaths. For the briefest of seconds, a blinding white light staggered me as a door opened, only to vanish again as it snapped closed. The darkness blazed around the dazzling burn to my retinas. Yet, in that brief second of illumination, I’d seen him.

Dalton.

My heart stuttered. Was that real? Had I imagined it? He’d had a finger to his lips, but then he was gone, swallowed by the darkness. But—wait, Dalton moved through the shadows so this would be nothing to him, right? Was he there? Really? I couldn’t feel him, not at all, in the link we had with each other.

Then warm arms slid around me, and I almost sobbed at the contact. But was it Dalton? I stiffened. What if this was a hallucination? Some figment of my imagination come to torment me? I swallowed the terror-soured anger, pushing my hands up between us to flatten against his chest. I wouldn’t give in.

“I can’t feel you.” If he was really here, if the man gripping me was my Dalton, I would have been able to feel him, right?

Her Cyborg Beast (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 4)

“What? What could be so terrible that you don’t want a mate?” The admission was like acid in my throat, but I forced the words past it.

“I can no longer become my beast. I can no longer claim my mate, and so I must allow you to choose another. I must ensure your happiness. You will be mated to a full Atlan. Strong enough to protect you.” Her grip on my hand tightened.

“No.”

“What?”

“I said no. N.O. As in, no. I do not agree to this.” Her soft voice was laced with steel, surprising me.

“I am unfit, Caroline.”

“It’s CJ,” she countered.

My eyes widened at her tone, realizing she wasn’t as meek as I’d assumed.

Grace Goodwin. Her Cyborg Beast (Kindle Locations 418-424). Grace Goodwin.

Caroline Jane (CJ) Ellison has a gift for analysis. When a Wall Street deal goes bad, the choice between prison or the Interstellar Brides Program is a no-brainer. She’ll go. She’ll leave Earth, her past, and her mistakes behind. The decision is logical, not emotional. Until she wakes up on another world with a huge Atlan Warlord, her matched mate, refusing to claim her.

Warlord Rezzer is contaminated. Weak. The Hive captured him and stole his soul, his very beast. A mate is out of the question when he can’t become what he was born to be, a beast, her mate, her protector. Forced into the Brides Program testing against his will, Rezzer has no intention of claiming the beautiful, sassy female who arrives on the Colony. The Hive stole his beast, but not his honor. He vows to give her to another, a worthy male, a beast who is whole — one not hunted by the Hive as part of a dangerous new experiment to win the war.

CJ takes one look at the wounded warrior before her and knows she will never be able to let him walk away. He’s hers now, her perfect match. And if that means she has to seduce the beast or face off with the Hive to save him…that’s exactly what she’s going to do. She lived her life following the rules. With everything on the line, it’s time to break them.

CJ just wasn’t what Rezzer expected, was she?! I absolutely love how couples from previous stories pop up in the current story. Although, given that this is set on the Colony, you would expect the mates from the earlier books to show up. But you never get the feeling that this is contrived in any way.

Lion on the Job (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 21)

Gerri shook her head and tried not to laugh. She really didn’t want to encourage Bertha’s outlandish ways. “Should I warn the theater people about you?”

“Nah, they are dramatic enough. I will fit right in. I have to go. Gerri? Thank you for your help.” Bertha hung up quickly and Gerri set the phone down. One more call to make and things should be moving right along. Remy wouldn’t resist once he met his mate, and if anyone else happened to find theirs at the same time… Well, nothing wrong with that at all.

Taiden, Milly. Lion on the Job (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 21) . Latin Goddess Press, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Remy Leandros is busting his fur to make the Lakeside Pride stronger than ever. It’s as easy as one, two, three. Or so he thought. He’s afraid if something doesn’t change soon, their numbers may decrease. What he doesn’t count on is his mate coming to his rescue. Wait. Mate? He doesn’t want a sexy, sensual, smart mate staying in his guest room. Much less saving his ass.

Genevieve Monroe’s stage play stars lion shifters. What better way to learn about these big felines than from real shifters? With help from Gerri Wilder, she and her crew are staying a couple weeks with the pride. And Gen herself is about to get up close and real personal with the big, sexy alpha of the pride. An alpha so hot, she wants to strip naked and purr like a cat in heat.

As a producer, Gen’s used to drama, but the performance playing out in the pride is beyond her expertise, especially when she’s personally threatened. Remy tries to protect his mate, but she’s determined to do what she wants, how she wants. But when she goes missing, it’s up to Remy to find her before the curtain closes.

What I Thought:

O.M.G. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy this one. At times, things just seemed to be rushed. But that play, oh my! I couldn’t stop laughing!
