The only thing former Coalition warriors Calder, Zed and Axon have in common are long years spent battling the Hive, and their eagerness to claim their personal reward—their own Interstellar Bride.
When news arrives on Viken that each of the warriors has been matched, they gather at the transport station only to receive two unwelcome surprises.
First, they are all matched to the same woman, and not one of them is inclined to share. Second, their mate has refused them. She won’t leave Earth and transport to Viken. Won’t give any of them a chance to win her heart.
But these warriors will not back down from a challenge. When one states his intention to travel to Earth and retrieve his mate, the others will not allow him to make the journey alone. Their mate will be seduced. Claimed. One by one, they will tame her. Make her their own.

What I will remember about this delightful book is that a putting together a family of four separate people takes time and some compromises. The men were at first competitive individuals. It took more time for them to realize that they were better together than they could ever be as individuals or couples.
When danger struck, they worked as a team to take down the guilty party. They put their bride, Violet and her love for her sister, Mindy, ahead of their own needs.
If You've been reading Grace Goodwin's stories, You'll love this on every bit as the others. If your new to Grace Goodwin's Sci-Fi romances, you've a treat ahead of you with this book.

I have purchased every book in the Interstellar Bride series - both the mainline and the offshoots (the Colony and the Virgins) and I have never been disappointed in any of the books. While my favorites in the series are any that involve Atlans and the Vikens are my least favoites, Grace Goodwin always writes a good story. Grace's characters and worlds are well developed and intriguing and her plots suck you into the story quickly and never lull.
I won't give away any spoilers, but the blurb only scratches the surface of what this story is really about. The fact that these three Vikens were not expecting to share a mate (unlike the previous Viken book) gave the author the chance to slowly bring these three Vikens together, despite their differing ways of claiming a mate and their desire to not share her. Violet's reason for refusing transport to Viken is a what really drives the story and as it is such a fantastic twist to the Interstellar Bride series - I won't say any more about it.
As I skim over the sexy parts (because I prefer story to titillation), I would say that there are enough and that they do not over power the story. The conclusion gives us a perfect solution to Violet's problem.
If you have not read any of the Interstellar Brides books, I would not start with this one. I would suggest reading the other three Viken books before this one, as many little threads from other books are woven into this story and may leave you a little perplexed at times (even though the author did an awesome job of briefly explaining everything).

This was another great Interstellar Brides book. In this one, Violet is mated to three Viken warriors who thought they were individually going to find a mate. Violet agrees to the match and before she is shipped off to meet them on their planet, she discovers she has not been matched to the same planet as her twin sister. That has her calling off the match. The guys go after her, traveling to Florida to fetch her. She has 30 days to decide if she wants to be mated to any of the men. There is a bit of drama, steam and danger in the book as well as a discovery of what constitutes a family.. It explores what one would do to save their family or make their family happy.

Just got pulled into this one. Loved the human Female.....Such attitude and not taking crap from anyone. That includes her three alien mates, Calder,Axon, and Zed. They sure were not planning on shring a mate when it came through that they had a human bride waiting for them. But they had to come together when Violet decided at the last minute to back out. The plan was to go to where her sister was, not a different planet and not with three mates. This book was awesome and fun and sexy and just plain great to read. Has some alien action and lots of sexy alien sex with three larger then life males that know what they are doing.
