Interstellar Brides® Program Book 9: Her Mate’s Secret Baby

Natalie Montgomery wants a new life. While she may be rich, her life is empty. Her parents were never around, too rich and important to be bothered with a child. And when they present her with a emotionless fiancé, she’s done. As a volunteer for the Interstellar Bride Program, she is thrilled to arrive on the hot, desert planet of Trion, and in the arms of a seductive warrior who makes her body burn. 

Roark of Trion is not eager for a mate. Danger and the constant threat of war dog his steps. But one look at his new bride, and his mind is changed. Natalie is everything he ever wanted in a woman…so soft, so passionate, so submissive to his every need. An attack on their outpost leaves Roark fighting for his life. For her protection, Natalie is transported back to Earth. Roark thinks she’s dead. But she’s very much alive and so is his newborn son. Natalie’s anger and regret grows with each passing day her mate does not keep his promise to come for her. By the time he discovers his mistake, it may be too late to win back her heart.

Once again a great story. This time we are back on Trion, the desert planet. Roark is a leader of his people and is visiting a out of the way rural outpost when his bride Natalie is transported to his location. Their feelings for each other are pretty much instantaneous. They are separated when the outpost is attacked, Roark is taken captive and Natalie is sent back to earth to keep her safe. When Roark escapes and is able to get back to an outpost, he is told Natalie is dead. Likewise Natalie is told Roark is dead, much angst ensues. For some reason time moves differently between the planets, Roark manages to transport to Earth after 14 days to search for Natalie. Little does he suspect that 13 months have past on Earth and he is astounded to find Natalie and a 4 month old baby, his son. While trying to return to Trion to start over, they run into more trouble, over and over again. They only want to settle down as a family, but someone is trying to stop that from happening. The storyline is fast paced, almost too fast in places, but a HEA finally happens. Another good read from this series, I've really enjoyed all the books in this series, each with a matched couple and an HEA, but completely unique circumstances. My only issue is that I wish the stories were a bit longer and I would have liked to find out how the couples settled down in mated bliss, and sometimes with babies. I'm hoping that Ms. Goodwin will continue the series by linking stories as she did in a few of the books, then maybe quench our curiosity.

So far my favorite in the whole intersteller brides series. Mating, Alien, sex and action with story. Not just insta love and sex sex sex.
Natalie isn't happy with her life. Her absentee parents and cheating fiance. No more she signs up for the intersteller bride program and finds her mate with a 99.9 accuracy I believe. She ready to go claim her mate.
Roark hasn't found a mate on Trion. None of the female interest him so he gets tested to find His mate. A female that wants him for him. Not his position, wealth and status.
So they are a good fit. Great chemistry. However after an explosive first night they are separated and then drama and danger unfold. Each has a different experience and a baby is uncovered changing everything.

I really love the Interstellar Bride books. This one has Natalie, a human, and a poor little rich girl where money does not by happiness. As a matter of face it is lonely, even feeling like a side thought of her parents, just not important. It is time to move on from all of this and her gross ex fiance. Enter thr bride program and her new mate, Roark. Roark new his one true mate was out there. and now she was here. One night of pssion and falling in love was all it took. Except for the interruption of a battle that left Roark taken hostage and Natalie sent back to earth for her saftey.

I don’t even know what to say, the emotions ran so high and deep my heart ached with both love and despair. Both feelings were felt deeply, sharply. She finds her mate, her home, her love... And loses him in a battle. Both think the other is dead and both struggle under the weight of the thought. As the book stretched out my fear that this might not end well was an acrid taste in my tongue but author Goodwin deals in happily ever after and I did get mine, tearfully so. She's such an amazing writer! You definitely will not be disappointed with this book.

Interstellar Brides® Program Book 7: Tamed by the Beast

When Tiffani is mated to an Atlan warrior believed lost to mating fever, she will stop at nothing to save him, including sneaking into an Atlan prison to seduce his beast..

Sick and tired of the dead-end path her life is taking, Tiffani Wilson heads to the nearest Interstellar Bride processing center to start over. She’s promised an amazing mate, an Atlan Warlord who will not only relish her plus sized body, but heal her lonely heart.

Commander Deek of Atlan has lost control of his inner beast and sits in an Atlan prison cell awaiting execution. Unfortunately, nothing can save an unmated male.

When Tiffani’s transport to Atlan is denied due to her mate’s unstable condition, she will stop at nothing to save him and the life she was promised. Her mate is out there, he’s in trouble, and she knows she’s the only one in the universe who can save him.

Deek and his inner beast take one look at Tiffani’s soft, lush body and know they will do anything to possess her, even if it means pushing her sensual limits or taking her over his knee. But it’s not just Deek’s tenuous hold on the beast that stands in the way of their happily-ever-after, for Deek’s descent into mating fever was no accident, and his enemies will not surrender so easily.

Tiffani was sick of a dead end job, all of the sleazy bosses and all of nasty jokes about big women. Finnally, she had enough! She spent her life savings and went to the bride program. And they find a match, but there's a problem. The match is condemned to die. Tiffani refused to let him die if she could stop it. So, she insisted that the match go on and she transported to where she needed to be. Then she finds out she will need to do, go to a prison cell. Deek is almost beyond help. He's in beast form because of mating fever. I leave it to you to find out more. But I will tell you that is worth your time to discover what and who. This is definitely a Grace Goodwin tale of love with an alien and a human woman. This is an adult only book times two.

Tiffany is a full figured woman who is fed up with Earth and all the drama and men. She puts her trust in the intersteller bride program to find her perfect match. Not only is she eager and more than willing when complications arise she demands to be transported to her mate.
Commander Deek is scheduled for execution after he has trouble controlling his beast. As they parade unmated woman after woman in front of his cell to entice him to mate his beast rejects each one, wanting only a true mate. Even at the cost of his life the beast isn't willing to settle for anything less.
I found this story a little refreshing. The woman is all for it. She wanted her man or male. Wanted what the bride processing dream showed her. She wanted it all. This story had a little more substance that others. You get a little drama with uncovering a secret plan rather than just plenty of sex. Although there is plenty of that too!

Tiffani, an insecure big girl, was tired of being made fun of on Earth so she signed up to be an Interstellar Bride. She’s matched to Atlan Commander Deek but he’s lost to mating fever and is scheduled to be executed. There is no way that Tiffani is going to allow that to happen.

I have read this Author before, and the one thing I enjoy , is that the books are similar, yet different .
In this book , Tiffani is a " big girl " . Not the size 0 - 6 that the media wants us to think is " normal " . So , she has felt that know one , especially men , could see her worth . So , feeling alone and alienated from her community , Tiffani signs up for the Interstellar Bride program.
She has been matched to a fierce Alien Warrior , from Atlan . These WARRIORS have a Beast inside them , that helps make them one of the best fighters in the GALAXY.

Only one problem, Her matched mate is scheduled to be terminated. Which means that she will have no mate....
Which means that she has No where to go .......
Will Tiffani sacrifice everything for a male that she doesn't even know ?
Or will she just let this male die because of his biological make up ??

Interstellar Brides Program 4: Taken By Her Mates

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?

Taken by her Mates- Oh my goodness! Prince Nial! My favorite Prillon Warrior by far!
Jessica is an Iraqi war vet and now a freelance photographer, only she's been framed and jailed on charges of selling drugs because she knew too much. Where better to get away from the people who assuredly want you dead than the Interstellar Bride program? Only once she matched to her perfect mate her transfer is denied, by the Prime himself. Jessica is heartbroken, no one wants her, not even the Aliens. But since her volunteering for the program and subsequent refusal commutes her sentence she's now a free agent. One that everyone thinks is off planet and she decides to use that loophole to find out and report the people who framed her.
What she doesn't expect is for her mate, and the Hive, to come looking for her. Or to fall in love with him.
Prince Nial has been contaminated by Hive technology and, in his father's opinion, undeserving of a bride because of it. Since his father is the Prime, ruler of the entire Prime world, he has the power to prevent the mating. Nial is done with his father's controlling ways though and will find his bride at any cost. (Does he have a cousin? I think he might be my match!)
I'm a sucker for the Prillon Warriors and I love the story of Nial coming after Jessica with the odds stacked against him. I loved that, for her, it wasn't love at first sight, though she did understand he was there to help her, once he'd introduced himself. And I love that her veteran status is able to give him and the other contaminated warriors a new lease on life.

I love to read historical romance and sometimes I like to switch genres and after reading Taken by Her Mates I am glad I did. This story sci-fi story was smoking hot! I have had the book for awhile and finally had the opportunity to read it. Loved the premise of a human female being paired with aliens as an Interstellar Bride. The fact that Jessica was falsely accused of a crime and Prince Nial was a veteran who was deamed contaminated by his father because he was captured and changed by the Hive set up a really go story with a great deal of emotion and action. Ander his second was also a scared warrior which added to the one female two mates storyline. The book had my interest from the beginning and Grace's characters were well defined. This was pure escapism with more sex than I am used to but it was a good read and I enjoyed the book. I am looking forward to reading other books by the author.

Interstellar Brides 3: Claimed By Her Mates

Desperate to escape a powerful man set on making an example of her for daring to defy him, Leah’s only option is to volunteer for the Interstellar Bride Program. She is assigned to the planet Viken, but upon her arrival she is shocked to discover that she has been matched to not one huge, handsome warrior, but three of them.

Drogan, Tor, and Lev were born as identical triplets to the royal family of Viken, but they were separated at birth in a last ditch effort to prevent a catastrophic war. In the years since a fragile peace has held, but now a terrible threat from deep space is growing more pressing by the day and there is only one way for the three brothers to save their people. They must take a mate and produce a sole heir to the throne as soon as possible.

Though being shared by three men is far from what she expected when she left Earth, Leah cannot hide her intense arousal as the brothers begin to teach her what it means to be mastered by warriors of Viken. It isn’t long before her hesitance to fully submit to her dominant husbands earns Leah a sound spanking on her bare bottom, yet even that shameful chastisement merely increases her desire for them. With her own future and that of the planet at stake, will she stubbornly resist her body’s demands, or will she surrender herself to be claimed by her mates?

So be prepared for super SEED power(yes addictive powerful sperm), plenty plenty plenty of sex. Anal training, spankings, restraints and three on one with all focus on their female. You also get a little drama with the running for safety, attempted assassination and kidnapping thrill tossed in as well.

I do enjoy these books, but I do wish the heroine would just tell that they need to explain things rather than expecting her to know what is going on. Why do they always have to get turned on by spanking? Even if they do, they don't have to accept it as a punishment for voicing there wants or asking questions. Spanking for sexual gratification is different to being hit as punishment. Great series though.

Interstellar Brides 2: Mated to the Warriors

When circumstances leave her with little choice but to volunteer for the Interstellar Bride Program, Hannah Johnson finds herself matched with not one but two mates. Her soon-to-be husbands are warriors of the planet Prillon, a world whose men are known far and wide for their prowess both in battle and in bed.

Following her transport to a starship halfway across the galaxy, Hannah awakens in the presence of Zane Deston, the huge, fiercely handsome commander of the Prillon fleet. After informing her that she is now his mate, as well as the mate of his second, Zane takes it upon himself to supervise as Hannah is thoroughly and intimately examined. Her failure to properly cooperate with the ship’s doctor earns her a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom, but it is her body’s response to the exam which truly leaves her blushing.

Though Hannah is shocked by the prospect of being shared by Zane and his second, the equally handsome warrior Dare, she cannot hide her arousal as her two dominant mates take their time in mastering her body. As the day of the claiming ceremony approaches, Hannah begins to long for the moment when Zane and Dare will make her fully theirs, but can she risk giving her heart to men who might die in battle any day?

Excellent writing, characters you can't help connecting with, and plausible background story to connect the VERY hot sex scenes. Typical of ALL this author's work.Kudos.

Also, I give my Ghost Pepper Hotness Award for this story, and the rest of this series in general. 😀

NOTES for the Morally Concerned (no spoilers). This story has significant emphasis on developing a D/s relationship with the new bride assigned to 2 Prillon Warriors via the interplanetary matching program ... so she isn't 'coerced', she already has the psychological profile to be compatible with her Primary Mate. She has the heart of a natural Sub, and needs the mates to take control...and so the story rolls, until she falls in love and wants them to formally claim her. (HEA ending) YES, there are several spanking scenes, between the mates,and an invasive medical exam scene that could upset some readers since it IS coerced. And adult. (use imagination here)

NOTE: sexual acts portrayed include oral, anal, the usual, and then works up to DP in the Claiming Ceremony. Naaaahhhh, I'm NOT spoiling the surprise - read it and find out why they have to do this. ALL scenes are hetero - the Bride is shared by 2 mates.

NOTE: there's ZERO degradation of the woman, even in the BDSM scene later near the end. It's realistic, as a Sub and a *good* Dom would act, however - meaning clear and reasonable cause/effect, clear expectations and consent, use of a 'safeword', and mutual caring between these two people. Yes, it's rough sometimes. None of the slave-humilliation-torture stuff that is mentally/physically/spiritually damaging. WHEW. Enjoy the ride, if you dare!

NOTE: ZERO substance abuse. NO profanity. NO gratuitous, casual killing. NO infidelity, head games, cheap sex, or devaluation of women. NO forcing sex on women.

You'll end up wanting to be matched to Prillon Warriors yourself, after reading a couple stories featuring them. 😉

Yeah: hot, sculpted, gold to copper skinned, 7' tall, generously hung, predatory looking humanoid males that are the lead players in the Galactic War against the Hive. (think Borg

I like to think of myself as a "veteran" of Grace Goodwin's paranormal romances, having read almost every one of her titles on Amazon. Obviously, I think her writing is wonderful; the characters are vivid and the story lines creative and full of detail. This book is as good as the rest. I wanted to rate it only 4 stars, however, because I found myself ready to slap the leading lady. Grace's heroines are kick-a$$ women who take a running leap at happiness by going into galaxies far, far away to be mated to the uh, warriors. Of course, there's some trepidation, maybe a second thought or two, perhaps some nerves. This character, however, is just plain crazy. She has 2 huge, sexy aliens who are devoted to her pleasure and what does she do? She wants to go back to Earth, even though she volunteered to come to space. Arrrrgh!!!

The author's artistic choices may have me cringing, but I can't argue that I want to know what's next in the book. Perhaps I just want to see this character get sent back to Earth just like she wants. That would serve her right. Perhaps I am more of a romantic and I want to see if she falls in love with her alien warriors. No matter my motivation, I want to see what happens. This is what makes Grace Goodwin's writing so out-of-this-world (uh, sorry). You may not like the choices that the characters make, but I can guarantee that this book will make you take a stand one way or another. Will you be team Hannah or team Zane? Maybe you'll be routing for Dare. None of the above? The choice is what is important here; the author's, the character's and ultimately, yours.

I vote to buy Grace Goodwin another pen so that she can get going on the next book since I should be finishing this one shortly. Brava

Her Cyborg Warriors (Interstellar Brides® Program: The Colony Book 8)

When her penchant for stirring up trouble brings danger to The Colony, they’ll stop at nothing to save her.

Nothing at all.

Professional surfer Mikki Tanaka didn’t want to leave her beloved Hawaii, the ocean waves, or the vibrant sea life she’s worked so hard to protect. But her protests and aggressive tactics didn’t mesh with the law and she’s found herself behind bars. Her choice? Ten years in jail or life as an Interstellar Bride. Never one to shy away from adventure, she decides to take her chances in the stars—with not one, but two sexy-as-hell alpha warriors on The Colony.

Surnen, a Prillon Warrior and trusted doctor, has been waiting for a bride for years. Banished to The Colony, he’s given up all hope, until a black-haired Earth beauty instantly steals his heart and his breath. But the highly disciplined doctor likes protocols and control, in bed and out of it. His second and an equally ruthless warrior, Captain Trax, agrees. Unfortunately, their new mate has a wild streak, a thirst for danger, and an appetite for violence that both shocks and thrills them. When her penchant for stirring up trouble brings danger to The Colony, they’ll stop at nothing to save her.

Nothing at all.

You gotta love the warriors on the Colony. They’ve been through H#ll and came out the other side still fighting. Still willing to stand between the innocents and the evil that lurks in the dark.

Faith thinks she’s got it all under control, until she meets Lord Jax’s oldest son, Thordin. He’s sexy. He’s hot as hell. And the first time he sees her, he tells her the one thing she absolutely does not want to hear…Mine!

Her head says no, but her body? Well, that wanton traitor seems to have a mind of its own.

Ascension Saga: 3 (Interstellar Brides®: Ascension Saga)

Although Trinity grew up on Earth, she’s Aleran. She’s been chosen by the artificial intelligence that bestows special gifts upon those deemed worthy. She’s been chosen to rule. To lead the planet and avoid the rising tides of war.

Leo is hers. She feels the truth every time he touches her. But enemies hunt them, her sisters are off on dangerous missions of their own, the queen is still missing, and in the royal court, nothing is what is seems…

  • Finally, the end of Trinity’s story. It does pick up where part two ended, but in order to get right back into the feel of the story, I would recommend re-reading the first two parts or at least skimming them prior to diving in. Grace is a master of storyline and characterization ( not to mention the heat!!!) ; I’m just really disappointed by her decision to adapt a cliffhanger format after 20+ successful books without using this crutch. Yes, others have used it, but it is usually used by authors trying to develop a readership not established authors. I definitely downgraded my review based on cliffhanger format. I feel the story lost momentum due to format. Still love author but just go ahead and be honest about price increase for your work and drop cliffhanger format, please!!! The completed book would be worth it!
  • The third in the Ascension saga, Trinity and Leo’s story. This is not a stand alone book, Trinity is protecting the throne on Alera with Leo by her side while the search for her mother, the queen, is still underway.

Now Leo, with the help of his father and the queen’s guard must find Trinity. While Trinity is trying to keep the throne safe, her sisters Faith and Destiny are on their own trying to get clues as to the location of their mother. I love this series, and although the ending is a HEA, you are left with many unanswered questions. Faith’s story is next, hopefully we will get some answers, though I doubt it. The saga has nine books and they are only published to book 5. I hope that Grace Goodwin gets the rest of the series done soon…..I do not like to be left hanging.

Even if his Mark calls to hers, connecting them body and soul, he knows that after just one look at him and she will never surrender the three sacred virginities. Never accept him as a mate.

Blindfolded and seduced, Helen has never seen the Hunter whose voice makes her tremble. She knows something isn’t right, but she can’t say no to the mysterious and demanding Hunter whose kiss makes her burn, and whose touch makes her beg in the darkness of night.

Zee has everything he thinks he needs, until another takes advantage of his new mate’s innocence… and tries to claim Zee’s Interstellar Bride for his own.

I hadn’t always been this way. Damaged. No. One battle and I was ruined. Injured by an ion blast and pinned behind enemy lines. I’d escaped the Hive, but I’d been on the run for days and the wounds to my body had healed before I could reach a ReGen pod. There was nothing the doctors could do. I was scarred for life. Ruthless slices and mottled skin marred my face, my neck. To a female, I was hideous. The virgin brides who’d walked by were proof of that.

And yet I’d been blessed by the gods to find my Marked Mate. Other Hunters were envious of me— for that alone. My mark had guided me to her and the dreams we shared proved the bond. The way she submitted and came for me as well. But she would not want me if she saw me, saw the disfigurement. She would be horrified. Afraid. Scared of me. The one word I feared she’d utter, butterfly, would come from her lush lips and it wouldn’t be from pushing her too far sexually. It would be from a quick glance alone.

As always, Ms. Goodwin gives us another great couple! I just wish there had been more of the backstory in this book. I actually had to go through previous Virgin books to read what came before this. Not exactly what I expected to do.
