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 loved their story and how the writing follows both characternthrough the different time changes and their thoughts one what next? Loved the HEA

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.

As an art dealer in New York, Sophia Antonelli’s worked hard to build her business, but fate forces her to make a deal with organized crime. When things go wrong, she takes the fall and is offered a choice: twenty-five years in jail or the Interstellar Bride Program. The choice is easy and Sophia is shocked to learn she’s mated to not one, but three Viken warriors.

After ten years fighting the Hive, Gunnar, Erik and Rolf are now the Kings’ guards at Viken United. Bowing to the new Queen’s wishes, they agree to share an Interstellar Bride. It should be an easy task since she’s matched to three of them, all battle hardened warriors. But none can save her from being kidnapped during transport. 

Accidentally mixed up in an evil organization’s plot to assassinate the Viken Queen, Sophia refuses to back down, even with her mates standing protectively in the way. After her experience on Earth, she’s not about to let anyone ruin her new life. Sophia will risk everything to expose her enemy, but when it comes to their new bride, her three Viken mates will do whatever it takes to eliminate the threat and keep her…forever.

This book has a courageous heroine and three hot Heroes along with an intriguing fight against a group of unknown bad guys trying to take over a world that only recently came together as one.

Light fair but they held my attention. Unlike so many of these novellas, the female characters are not aggressively stupid. They may veer to the to the "I don't know what he's thinking" side now and again but they come back from the dark side when it counts. These dominant males are more than just hot meat. I enjoyed learning about the Interstellar war with the Hive. The warriors that fight against the HIve are larger than life and the ones that get the brides and more than one dimensional.

Okay, if you've read any of my reviews, you know I love the Interstellar Brides series. I've read them all at this point and can't wait for more.

This one was a little different from the previous books in this series. It was a nice change up. It revisits the Vikens introduced in Book 3. Sophia's been matched to not one or two mates, but three and on top of that, someone doesn't want her to meet them.

There was, in my opinion, more mystery and tension in this book than in some of the others. It had me biting my nails to the end. My mantra was- this is an HEA, this is an HEA.
That being said, I don't think the others are missing anything without the added mystery and tension. It was just a nice change.

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.

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!

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 Book 6: Mastered by Her Mates

How can she protect the warriors she has grown to love and save the people of Earth from making a terrible mistake? Will her human contacts believe her when, with every touch, every look, they will see just how thoroughly she has been mastered by her mates?

Amanda Bryant has been a spy for five long years, but when aliens suddenly appear claiming a deadly enemy threatens Earth’s very survival, Amanda is asked by her superiors to accept the most dangerous mission of her life…volunteer to be an alien’s bride, to share the strange warrior’s bed and then betray him.

Accepting the assignment, Amanda is processed as the first Interstellar Bride and transported halfway across the galaxy to her new mate’s battleship where she awakens to discover she has been matched to not just one huge Prillon warrior, but two.

Shocked by her craving for the touch of two dominant alpha males, Amanda attempts to hide her body’s immediate reaction to Commander Grigg and his second, Rav. Resistance is futile as her new mates expect to control every aspect of her life, and her pleasure, and neither will hesitate to deliver a thorough and embarrassing spanking should she disobey their sensual commands, or resist a complex and deeply arousing series of medical exams designed to ensure her sexual readiness for their claiming.

Seduced and cherished by two alpha alien warriors who hide nothing from her, Amanda quickly comes to realize that the threat to Earth is very real. When she witnesses a battle with the enemy and the resulting death of a highly respected warrior, she knows she must tell her mates the truth and hope they can forgive her for her duplicity before it’s too late.

Loyalties will be tested as Amanda fights the most important battle of her life. How can she protect the warriors she has grown to love and save the people of Earth from making a terrible mistake? Will her human contacts believe her when, with every touch, every look, they will see just how thoroughly she has been mastered by her mates?

Reviewed in the United States on September 1, 2017 Verified Purchase
I downloaded this expecting complete and utter smut. It definitely contains that, but also a surprising amount of world-building and detail put into the story around the sex scenes. Things I enjoyed: The point of view switches between the three main characters Amanda, Grigg, and Conrav from scene to scene. The characters have personalities and their own problems, and despite their kinky marriage traditions, they expect Amanda to integrate into their culture and be a useful member of society, not just a sex bunny who lives in their private quarters.

The men and Amanda each had subplots with problems to face that were not just about the marriage plot. The sci-fi world was enjoyably well-developed and deliberately went against cliches (and our Earth heroine's expectations) on several occasions. I really enjoyed the dominant and submissive nature of the characters' sexual relationship, which pushed boundaries but never got abusive or non-consensual. The poly triad was both hot in the sex scenes and sweet in scenes where they looked after and comforted each other. It's believable that they could fall in love in such a short amount of time. I enjoyed this book enough to tell a friend to grab a copy and read it, and I'll definitely be checking out more of this author's work, especially work featuring poly relationships.

Another great addition to the series. Amanda is actually the first human bride to be processes and placed through the Interstellar Bride Program, though unknown to the program, she is actually an American plant, sent to space under dubious orders. The Commander and doctor who are her matched mates don't know this at first, but obviously figure it out. The story evolves around the motives and desires of all the different parties involved in sending Amanda into space. It is a good story, but I don't think Amanda was a very good information collector, at least for her Earth bosses. Through the ups and downs, a HEA is achieved. Even though this story is about the first bride sent, I'm glad it was placed later in the series, the familiarity with the whole concept of this expanded universe gave me a better appreciation for the issues Amanda has to deal with being the first bride. I also think the human response to the aliens was plausible, dead on really, especially the government, seems exactly how they would act and react, not believing how awful the Hive truly is. I really enjoyed this book for both the plot and hotness. Loved the flicks and licks line.

There is one thing that I didn't like at all, but it's not from the story. I absolutely hate the book cover. These warriors are supposed to be 7 feet tall, extremely well built and handsome. The cover does not reflect that at all. Unfortunately, the one man you can clearly see is neither extremely tall, extremely well built or particularly awesome in the looks department (sorry, I'm sure he is a nice guy in real life.) Most of the covers have been good to great, this one just doesn't cut it.

This was a good start to the series. I liked seeing how some of the 'first contact' aftermath played out and how mistakes were definitely made on all sides. Amanda goes into this with a set idea that the aliens are hiding the truth from Earth but is able to change her mind when the evidence is right there- something her bosses on Earth aren't! The guys were fun to watch adjust to having to acknowledge their emotions and how to work together to be a family. Sexy and fun, a good read.

After two of her brothers are killed in battle with the relentless alien menace that threatens the entire Interstellar Coalition, Sarah Mills volunteers to join the fight in an effort to bring home her last surviving brother. When she is mistakenly processed as a bride rather than a soldier, however, she rejects the match. But her mate has other ideas…

Dax is an Atlan warlord, and like all the men of his race, a primal beast lurks within him, ready to emerge in the fury of battle or the heat of the mating fever. When he learns that his bride has chosen to fight on the front lines rather than share his bed, he sets out to track her down and take what the beast demands.

Sarah is none too pleased when a massive brute claiming to be her mate arrives suddenly in the midst of a battle, and her displeasure turns to fury when Dax’s presence disrupts her mission and leads to the capture of her brother. But after her commanding officer refuses to authorize a rescue mission, Sarah’s best hope of saving the only family she has left is to accept Dax’s offer to help, even if that means giving herself to him in return.

Though he is thrilled to have located his wayward bride, Dax quickly discovers that Sarah is nothing like the meek, submissive women of his world. If he wants her, he will have to tame her, with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom if necessary. But Dax doesn’t just want Sarah, he needs her. Can she satisfy the fearsome beast within him before he loses control completely?

Damn I love this series. Sarah & Dax are my favorite couple in this series so far. Sarah was trying to get signed up for the front lines of the war and work side by side with her only remaining brother. They accidentally processed her as a bride instead of the war, which she refuses. Dax is starting his mating heat and they get him processed right away for a bride, but his bride was never taken out of the system and is not a part of the program.....so, he goes to get her. Her and her brothers team are in the middle of an op when he lands right in the middle. This causes her brother to be taken and her and her mate to go get him back.

Mated to the Beast- Sarah is a warrior in her own right and she's volunteering for the coalition because her brother's out there alone.

And she's matched to an Atlan who's about to go into beserker mode if he doesn't get matched to his mate. Dax is at his limit, he needs a mate and now, or he will face being executed before he's too dangerous to be around. The problem is, his mate is off fighting the Hive instead of joining him.

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.

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?

You also get a little drama with the running for safety, attempted assassination and kidnapping thrill tossed in as well.

The idea of being matched as a Bridal to one man but identical triplets and their panty melting DNA wins the Trifecta. I liked the touch of political conspiracy, betrayel and the idea that instead of fighting each other, to instead fight for the planet.

This was another good book! I really like this series. This book has the bride paired with three brothers. Leah is volunteering to escape an abusive relationship on earth but on Viken she finds herself tied to three brothers who don’t know each other and are at war. Liked how the author ties the whole story together.

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

There may be affiliate links in this post. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn a small commission from qualifying purchases.

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Strongest story showing D/s; BD driven relationship - realistically done and respectful of the Woman - INTENSE

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'm going to skip the synopsis and just go to what I loved about this book.

1. 2 guys (duh)
2. 1 guy is a mega Dom, but holds back
3. Guy number 2 is an Alpha who knows what he wants takes it.
4. The heroine isn't dumb or annoying
5. BDSM well written
6. Damaged hero
7. Did I mention 2 hot, alpha alien dudes?

Seriously, I'm totally loving this new author and am devouring everything she puts out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of this world story with a human side
Reviewed in the United States on February 8, 2018 Verified Purchase
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

Interstellar Brides Book 1: Assigned a Mate

There may be affiliate links in this post. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn a small commission from qualifying purchases.

When a potential threat against her life forces Eva Daily to seek shelter on another world, she has only one option available to her. She must offer herself to the Interstellar Bride Program. After a deeply humiliating assessment of her suitability, Eva will be assigned a mate and transported to his world to become his bride.

Upon arriving on the desert planet Trion, Eva soon learns that things are quite different than she is used to on Earth. Her assigned mate, the powerful, handsome High Councilor Tark, makes it clear that she will be expected to submit to him completely, and she quickly discovers that disobedience will earn her a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom.

An intimate examination from her new mate leaves Eva blushing crimson, but to her surprise Tark’s mastery of her body arouses her beyond anything she could have ever imagined. Soon enough she finds herself naked, bound, and unable to resist the urge to beg for more as his skillful lovemaking brings her to one shattering climax after another.

It doesn’t take long, however, for Eva to realize that there is much more to Tark than just a dominant brute who will not hesitate to take his misbehaving wife over his knee and redden her bare bottom thoroughly. But just as her passion for him begins to blossom into love, events back on Earth threaten to tear her away from him forever. Can Eva find a way to remain at Tark’s side and in his bed, or will she be left with nothing but memories of the man who has claimed both her body and her heart?

O.M.G! Do make sure to have plenty of cold drinks on hand, it’s that hot! Hot men, curvy chicks, what more could you ask for?

I had a lot of fun with this book and really enjoyed the story. The only issue I had with it is I felt the ending was a little rushed and the book felt a little short because of that. Otherwise, it was a guilty pleasure that I stayed up way too late to finish. I liked it so much I finished it in 24 hours flat. It's definitely an adult steamy read for 18+ years or older. If sci-fi alien romance is your thing, you could definitely do worse than this series. Author Goodwin has a knack for erotica that a lot of authors I've read lack.

3.0 out of 5 stars A STEAMY READ....
Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2020
This is my first story from this author so my only hope was that I would enjoy the book since I love paranormal reads. It turned out to be a good story and I'm willing to give next book in the series a try. I listened to the audible version of the story and the narrators did a great job. I enjoyed Eva (Evelyn) and Tark characters. I loved that Eva was a strong character and challenged him at every turn. I also loved that Tark was sweet, protective, and caring when it came to her even though he had a job to do and rules to follow. They desired each other and the sex scenes were hot. The story was steamy from beginning to end. However, I expected a little more action besides sex to happen in this story and was slightly disappointed that there wasn't more. There was a little incident that happened in this story but I thought it would be more action packed. It wasn't but over all, it was still a good, steamy, paranormal read.

When Eva witnessed a murder the only safe place for her was hiding in the intersteller brides program. All set to hide out for a few months on Trion as the program matched her to her warrior she awoke with some new adornments per planet custom.
So hot alien sex with a dominate male who like to spank and have complete control in the bedroom or rather tent. Be prepared for spanking, bondage, nipple piercings/chains, and so many vibrating toys.
Tark not only commands her body but discovers her secrets.
