Nyko of Atlan never hesitates to charge into battle against Hive scum. Seeing a soldier in trouble, he follows, ripping his enemies to shreds to save the human fighter. When that warrior turns out to be a beautiful and curvy female, the beast within him, and the hunger he’s been fighting, suddenly breaks free and growls one simple demand…MINE.
Megan Simmons is a soldier sent into space to protect Earth as a member of the Coalition Fleet. After eighteen months of ruthless fighting on an alien planet controlled by the enemy, Megan receives a secret assignment. The plan was simple, separate from her unit and sneak behind enemy lines. Her mission was on track until one hot but meddlesome Atlan Warlord thinks she needs saving and worse, declares he wants to keep her for himself.

Another fantastic installment in the Interstellar Bride Series. This is the third Atlan Warrior and I have to admit that Atlans are my favorites. This book has more story than $ex and I actually, like it better this way.
Megan is from a military family and joined the Coalition to hopefully, finally make her mom proud of her but didn't expect it would happen. Two days away from the end of her 2 year enlistment and she has decided that she won't be returning to Earth and will instead become an Interstellar Bride and have a family of her own to love. Nyko is everything that makes the Atlans my favorites - he's big, protective, caring, and will die unless he finds his mate (OK - he won't die if he doesn't find a mate - he will be executed). Nyko has been having more and more trouble controlling his beast and will soon have to find a mate. Fate throws these two together during a conflict with the Hive and that's when things get interesting.
The story leads us into the conflict with the Hive on a level that we have only seen in Mated to the Beast (Sarah and Dax's story). It gives us a glimpse into the magnitude of the fight that the Coalition is up against in fighting the Hive. In my personal opinion, it made for a much more interesting and absorbing story.
I was given an advanced copy by the author but will be purchasing it as soon as it goes live. Do yourself a favor, if you are into hot aliens - grab this series. I cannot recommend it enough.

Really enjoyed the book. Megan was a bit of a whiner. Grated on my nerves actually. She sounded younger than the age mentioned. Really, she was almost 30, a billion miles away and still whining about her conversations with her mother. Why are you calling her? Her mother did not like her. There really wasn't a reason given for that. Only that her father was dead and her mother started to drink shortly there after. I don't understand why the hostility was directed towards Megan. She had low self esteem, but very unwarranted, given her current job. Megan was a superstar and it seems that her fellow warriors respected and admired her. Nyko was hot, but I loved his Beast. Beast knew it immediately. Nyko had to catch up. Once Beast was able to taste, no one was taking Megan from him. He was so cute. Mine, mine, mine! Even after he went through the testing for a bride, he would not be dissuaded. I actually loved the world created by Grace Goodwin. This is the first book I've read by this author. The action was amazing. Nexus 9 was creepy. Great, well developed characters. I do recommend this book. Enjoyed it immensely.

Megan and Nyko. Human IC coalition fighter (basically like special black ops in space)
Megan is almost done with her 2 years fighting Hive and special missions. With the chip in her head she has to finish her last mission, but before she heads out she gets tested for a mate by the intersteller brides program. Now all she has to is survive her last mission and live happy ever after.
Nyko is an Atlan Warlord who is close to going into Mating Fever. That means he has to find his one mate that will calm his beast and save his life. Not to mention hit sex with dominat male who hulks out....everywhere. yes ping the male envy ego.
So battle, blood guts heads and bodies ripped apart to satisfy anyone with blood lust. But fear not.. sexy cave scene. Wink wink. Then some drama you dont want to miss.
Overall I did enjoy this story. So much better when you actually have a story instead of 2 characters banging each other repeatedly. I enjoy a little finesse. 🙂

I enjoyed this book , and highly recommend Grace Goodwin 's books for a fast paced - exciting read . Always !!
In this book , the beast is Nyko, an Atlan Warrior, who is in his Mating fever . This fever affects all Atlans, and if they dont find a mate , then their Beast takes over , and they must be out down.
Megan is an Earth girl, who comes from a Military family. She chose to go Interstellar, instead of staying on Earth. Only a two year term to retirement. And when we meet her, she has only two more days to go !
Oh, yeah, she knows the Atlan Nyko, ran a few ops with him ....
They DON'T like each other .
At all !!!
Isn't that a wonderful beginning ???
