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.

This was the second book in the series, staring the second Dragon to awaken, Kellan and M (I can't remember how to spell her complicated name). I really liked how the story centered on women pushing back against being forced to marry and do what the men want them to do. Unfortunately, there is genetics and traditions, and Kellan has decided to teach M what it's like to be a female dragon. The other women are super strong and loved their varied ways of dealing with the upheaval of being forced to leave their home. There was an interesting bit revealed that might complicate the relationship between Kellan and M.

I really enjoyed reading this outstanding, dark dragon shifter romance & it can be read as a standalone. It has a well-paced, strong plot filled with some unexpected situations & it certainly grabbed my attention within the first few pages & kept it until the end. The characters are strong-willed individuals with unique personalities that display a determination to succeed although the female character portrays realistic defiance & tries to avoid an inevitable future. There is good support from the secondary characters.
It is about: the second male dragon shifter & Lord of the Sea (Kellan) has finally awaken from his slumber with one thought in his mind & that is to claim his mate (Miorúilt) of whom he has been dreaming about but she is not too keen about this idea.
There is: dragon shifters, friendship, fated mates, action, adventure, twists & turns, intrigue, suspense, drama, tragedy, sanctuary, dreams, determination, confrontations, manipulations, defiance, threats, coercion, some dubious/non-consensual scenes, emotional turmoil, discipline, spankings, steamy scenes, contentment & a very interesting ending that is paving the way for the next book in the series. I enjoyed read this dark dragon shifter romance & would recommend it to people who enjoy reading this genre. I sincerely doubt that you would be disappointed.

Mioruilt is a young woman that has grown up working on the land she is a special sort that is absolutely full of attitude and life and she is not in anyway aware that she is actually the last female dragon until one day she finds herself quite literally in a collision course with a dragon.
Kellan is Lord Of The Seas and he has recently waken from a sleep that had been induced by a wizard, during his time sleeping he recalls that he had dreamed of a female who he had never seen before and yet he knew in his heart she was special to him.
This was a simply splendid read and I know that you will not be disappointed, it is a wonderful addition to the previous story and I am sure like me you will be left waiting for the next book.

Míorúilt. is the farm girl who isn't aware she's the last female dragon until fate takes a hand and puts her on a collision course (in the air) with Kellan, Lord of The Seas - the next of the elemental dragons to wake from the long sleep. Marvelous second story in the series with what we usually expect from Delta - strong hero, kick-ass heroine, great action and steamy in all the right places.

Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 2: Lure of the Wolf

She can’t remember her past. He wishes he could forget his.

Nina only has the vaguest memories of who she is or why two men tried to kill her one terrifying night. All she knows is how quickly she’s falling in love with her rescuer — a man with secrets of his own. With her, he’s kind, gentle, and fun — but there’s a ferocious, animal side to Boone and the group of Special Forces vets he shares an exclusive seaside estate with. Can Boone help her uncover the past before the killers catch up with her? Or will an unexpected twist of fate steal her only chance at true love?

If fate were to come knocking on the door of Boone Hawthorne’s beach bungalow, he’d shove it right back into the sea — especially if it started whispering any nonsense about destined mates. But one night, a woman washes up on his private stretch of beach. Before the wolf shifter knows it, he’s breaking every personal rule for her and making promises he’s not sure he can keep. Investigating Nina’s past means crossing paths with a powerful archenemy, cutthroat criminals, and a ruthlessly selfish ex-lover who will stop at nothing to get Boone back in her bed. Can he solve the mystery of Nina’s identity while protecting her — without risking his own heart?

I'm currently reading the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart series and am 3 books in. I love that, in what is a first for me, the human part of the soul and the shifter part actually communicate with each other. Not in paragraphs or anything but an observation here (usually quite funny), a fussing at there. I enjoy it a lot.

While the outline for the stories seem to be based rather similarly, and therefore it is quite predictable, she does separate the backgrounds of the men and women and their struggles, so that's where the originality comes in. In this story the suspense was well done and kept me turning pages. I became invested in Boone and Nina.

This is a fun series and I enjoy the different shifter types. Can't wait to see what's next.

Lure of the Wolf was dramatic suspense from the start. Nina is at Boone's feet and his mercy. As the story progresses, Nina needs to recall who she is and what happened. Boone has to keep his heart from being played again. Boone's buddies have two rules and having Nina at the estate violates both of them. While Silas is away, Hunter and Cruz help both of them. But then things spiral out of control and the mayhem could be the end for all of them. The book kept everything moving just like the pieces of Nina's memory. The ending was very worthy of Boone & Nina.

As a side note, it was really cute to have the little icons before each chapter to represent who the chapter's viewpoint was going to be from. There was also a total teaser for setting up Hunter's story. While the second in the Aloha Shifters series, it can be read as a stand-alone without missing out from anything in the first.

I am a fan of Ms. Lowe’s stories and have read/listened to several of her books. I love how she weaves the story elements together and makes it easy to picture the characters, locations and emotions. In fact, she did such a fantastic job of describing the location that I am wishing I could visit Maui this summer instead of sometime in the distant future.

The narrator, Ms. Osbourne, did well with the various characters voices and emotions. This is the 4th or 5th story I’ve listened to her narrate and I have truly come to enjoy her narration style.

While the story does start off with the age-old trope of amnesia, I didn’t find it as annoying as I generally do. I think it was executed well and was easy to believe. The other elements of the story were well done too. I loved mystery of who was trying to harm Nina and why.

I loved how Boone and Nina clicked with one another. Granted it was insta-lust & insta-love, but that’s a typical shifter trope, but like the amnesia it was well executed. The characters actually considered why the loved one another.

The supporting cast was great as well. I am definitely looking forward to reading/listening to Hunter and Dawn’s story. I love those two characters! Books 1 and 2 of this series have set their story up well. It’s going to be interesting since they characters are not strangers, but have been dancing around their attraction for quite some time. Oh, and I’m looking forward to Cruz’s story in book 4. I like the growly tiger.

This book started out the gate with spunk. Nina was thrown overboard and left for dead. She didn't know how she made it to shore or where she was. She passes out. The next minute she looks up and was enthralled by this handsome stranger whose at first glance eyes glowed indigo. What luck did Boone had to have his mate wash up on his piece of paradise. Only problem she doesn't remember much. She has a case of amnesia. But Boone will protect her. Keep her safe. Of course Silas wants of none of this. Drop her off to the police. But Boone has other plans. They take a drive just the two of them on his Harley Davidson motorcycle to see if they can jar her memory. She come across a spot and things come to her but she still doesn't understand why. They come upon a ritzy fa- tooty resort. There people recognize her. They are escorted to her penthouse suite. The room is ransacked. She gets her stuff. And they precede downstairs once Boone calls for backup . Once Cruz and Hunter arrive they whisked Nina away. Downstairs Boone is accosted by his nemesis Kramer who's a mercenary and ex-lover Tamara. The guys rush Nina away while Boone stayed back. Then that's when the fun began....menagerie being offered, kidnappings, shifters being found out, new jewels awakening, mate's being found out about(more than one set)...you really need to get the book. Waiting for book 3 Hunters book. Oh yeah she was left 50 million dollars.

Golden Fire Clan (Dragon Guard Series Book 7): Fighting For Her Dragon

There Are No Coincidences….
Given a fairy tale life by the clan of dragon shifters that rescued her as a little girl, Emma Sinclair long ago accepted she might never solve the mystery of her heritage. Of course, that was before she could feel the traitor’s pain, before she knew he was slipping away. And before the unthinkable happened… he called to her in the language of his kin.

The Universe Does Not Make Mistakes…
Captured by his brothers. Imprisoned in a cave. Bound in silver chains. Andrew knew his days were numbered. He accepted his fate. Knew he was getting what he deserved. Hallucinations of his long dead parents were his only solace in the debris of a wasted life. Then the daffodils entered his prison. The fragrance stirred visions of expressive brown eyes, a smile that rivaled the sun and a voice that was a balm to his tattered soul. He clung to the memory of her. She became his lifeline…his only hope of survival…

Fate Will Not Be Denied…
One doomed dragon. One very special woman. One destiny no one could have predicted. Will they save dragon kin or destroy it?

The magic in this story is that instead of pieces clicking in to place for the characters, they click into place for the readers. Threads from the previous 6 books in the serious weave together as a prophecy is finally properly translated and understood, and as readers, we discover if we have correctly been solving mysteries as the series was unfolding... guessing who aligned with what, and if we were following the bread crumbs the author as been placing for us all along.

This is less about a redemption for Andrew or his finding forgiveness (within himself, or from others) than it is about being reminded that a single person can be an amazing influence on us -- can motivate us to be our best selves, to strive towards the light, and turn our back on our worst impulses.

As much as it concludes the overarching arc that has been building up to this point, it does not actually feel like it concludes Andrew's story -- it gets him back to his kin, but he is still traveling a path that could be interesting, and knowing there are more books in the series, I can not help but wonder if his path is touched on in future stories.

I was honored enough to be a Beta for this book and it was AMAZING! yes, it is very different from the last 6, but in a good way in my opinion. It is a more emotional read, but it does also give you a sense of satisfaction and completion at the end of it while still making you excited for what's to come. I really enjoyed seeing someone who's been the villain for soo long be thrown for a loop and being forced to re-evaluate the way we look and feel about Andrew. It was a book that I could NOT put down, it was a relatively quick read, but that's the same with the others in the series, and while they may be a quick read they still give an amazing story, and this one is no different.

Julia Mills' powerful latest novel in the Dragon Guard series provoked laughter and copious tears from me. Part of an ongoing series that stands as a separate story, the book showcases the author's ever increasing talent at word craft. Julia, whose middle initial is "R", is truly a "jeweler". She's taken the gem of an idea and built it into the story of a traitor and the only woman who can redeem him.

Snared by the enemy who cruelly tricked his brother into believing him dead, Andrew was held for years before convincing his captors that he wanted revenge against the Dragon Guard for abandoning him. Andrew became adept at black magic and pushed his dragon deep inside as he strived toward that goal. When his brother dragons catch up to him, he unbelievably senses his mate in distress within the clan. It seems her life is tied to his, and the fate of the clans just might be, too.

Read this book, and you'll race to read them all...

Emma Sinclair currently works as the jeweller at the lair, but her heritage is unknown and she long ago accepted that it would stay that way. Then she realised that she could feel the pain being experienced by "the Traitor" and he was calling to her in the language of his kin. Andrew's brothers have captured him and he is bound in silver in a cave. He knows this is exactly what he deserves after the way he has behaved in the past and only hallucinations of his long-dead parents are able to give him solace. However, he detects the scent of salt, sun and fresh air and all he can see and think of are brown eyes and a smile that acts as a balm to his tattered soul. Only the memory of this woman is both his solace and lifeline. Can they both come out of this situation or are them both lost for all time?

I loved this story which was both dramatic and emotional all at the same time. It was great to watch Andrew care much more for someone else which moved him out of his selfish and feeling sorry for himself mode. I could feel and sense all of the thoughts and emotions of the characters involved and was thrilled with the surprises at the end of this story.

When Bridget set out on her own, she sought freedom from the strict rules of her pack. What she found was a beast more stern and demanding than any alpha wolf, a creature of legend intent on claiming her as his mate and breeding her to bring his kind back into the world. A dragon.

Gideon did not ask the little she-wolf if she wanted to belong to him. It was not up to her. The moment he awoke and smelled the scent of his mate, she became his. He tracked her down, punished her defiance, and then ravaged her until a thousand years of lust was fully slaked.

He did not mark her with his teeth like a wolf. He did not need to. Her body knows its master.

I loved this story. It is set in the world of Warlord, Overlord and Wolflord. In fact, Bridget is the widow of the former alpha of Dundalk. She decides that she wants to be treated as equal to the males of the pack. "...but I think I'm done with having males decide my fate." She leaves and goes to find somewhere for women to live free. A lot of this stems from her belief that her objections to be mated to the alpha were overlooked and she was forced to comply. She loved him, but she wanted to be able to make her own decisions as well. While travelling she meets Gideon who is a dragon. He starts the process for her to transform to a dragon without even telling her and he is not apologetic at all, in fact he is smug. There is conflict, but there is a HEA for our dragons. I will say that Delta loves to write about overbearing males. They have redeeming qualities, but they are definitely a**es. Saying that, I look forward to more stories about the dragons.

I do think I would have benefited reading the others for the beginning, because I was a bit lost and it started in the middle of a battle. However, I really enjoyed the story and the world building. It had some editing issues and some clunky dialogue trying to mimic a sort of Elizabethan form of speaking, but not really committing to it.

If you're looking for a light and airy paranormal romance, let me just stop you now because you're not going to find it here. Delta James' paranormal romance are on the darker side. Now, if that's what your're looking for, please, carry on. These books are not set in todays time, it is somewhere in the future after a planet changing event. Females in this future setting do not have much say in their lives. They are expected to follow orders and do as they're told and disciplined for disobeying. The discipline consists of being spanked, standing in a corner, etc. The sex scenes are plentiful and quite detailed.

This newest book by Delta James follows along with "Warlord", "Overlord" and "Wolflord". Characters from those books make brief appearances in this book, with the exception of Bridget, from "Wolflord", who is a main character in this book.

Bridget, looking to start a sanctuary for females that don't want to be claimed as mates, sneaks away to look for a lost city. Gideon, one of the last dragon shifters, awakens after a 1000 year sleep. When he catches Bridget's scent, the chase begins. When he finds Bridget, he immediately goes to her and stakes his claim. Bridget, not wanting to be mated again, sneaks out and runs. But Gideon is not going to allow his female to escape, she is his one true heart, something all male dragons yearned for. She was his to love and protect from now on, whether she wanted it or not.

If you are unable to get past my first paragraph of this review I do not recommend this book to you. Don't get this book and then leave a bad review because you didn't like the contents. For those that don't skip a beat with that first paragraph, give Delta James a try if you haven't already

I really enjoy the fun pace of Ms. Lowe's books. I loved how the story was modeled after Magnum PI a show I totally loved for its quirks. The description of the island, the homes, and the cars was fantastic.

The narrator Kelly Osbourne has grown on me after hearing her narrate several books now. I'm starting to really enjoy her.

The couple in this story are Tess and Kai. I loved them both instantly. I loved how they interacted and how they seemed to just fit as a couple. Kai was so understanding and Tess was a bit of a surprise especially when she got angry at Kai for telling her what to do. Sparks galore.

The secondary characters were pretty awesome as well. I'm looking forward to learning all about Boone in the next book. It was pretty sweet to have a nod towards the Twin Moon Pack in Arizona.

I love this series and this installment did not disappoint. I love how each book has a unique way of telling the love story.

Charlie witnessed an unbelievable site, a woman turning into a dragon. She pushed away everyone trying to figure this new reality.

Aaron knew Charlie was his mate the moment he saw her in the hospital. He had to have patience for her to reconcile this new reality and come to her mate on her terms.

But all is not what it seems with Charlie, a secret that only Aaron can help her with.

There is also information about Kyra's mother and the traitor.

I loved the relationship between Aaron and Charlie, there was action and passion.

Read these books in order, the richness of the story is more complete when you have the background of the other stories.

A great read, these books just keep getting better!

“Only for Her Dragon” Book #6 (Dragon Guard Series) Julia Mills

I think this may be my favorite book in the series. I know I know I probably have said it about all of them. Julia’s Dragon Guard Series is absolutely fantastic what can I say. I live for her next release.
Only for Her Dragon was a little lighter read. She had the perfect mix of action, humor and romance. Aaron the last bachelor of the guardsmen swore he would never take a mate. His teasing was brutal towards his brethren when they found their mates. Well Karma is a you know what. Aaron fell hard for Dr. Charlene (Charlie) Gallagher, who happened to be Sam’s (Lance’s mate) best friend. The first kiss and he was a goner but then again so was Charlie.
Charlie was with Aaron at Devon’s and Anya’s mating ceremony when a distress call went out by Aaron’s brethren through their mental link he had to leave Charlie to see what happened. Before he left he told her to go back inside. Well Charlie doesn’t take orders from anyone. So she followed Aaron staying far enough behind she thought. What she came upon put her in a state of shock among other things. Anya was going through her first transition from human form to her dragon. The entire group was there and Devon was going crazy. Anya was a miracle. The only female dragon known to still exist.
Charlie turned and started running and didn’t look back. For 15 days she went through a gamut of emotions all circling back to the incident and the most gorgeous guy she’s ever met. She was angry, she was hurt that her best friend never told her, she cried, she was confused, and she thought she was going crazy. Charlie would not take Sam’s calls and she didn’t want to see anyone. Finally she gave in and met with Sam. After lots and lots of questions, which Sam tried the best she could to answer Charlie still couldn’t wrap it all around her head. The hunk of her dreams was a dragon. She just needed time to process this.
After having a heart to heart with Aaron things seemed to be going better, until their first romantic encounter and Aaron noticed the marking on Charlie’s back. While rubbing her back to ease her discomfort he felt something move. After closer examination and entering her mind he discovered his mate had magic within her. Good white magic. He knew he would have to talk to Charlie about this and he wanted her to go with him to see Siobhan the Guardsmen’s healer and mother to all and Kyra. Between the two of them they should be able to figure her magic out and what the markings mean.
Turns out Charlie has a dream after meeting with Kyra and Siobhan and she finds out what the markings are and where her magic comes from. My absolutely favorite line from this read is “Aaron, get your dragon ass in here? I’m a freakin Fairy!” I never laughed so hard in my life. You have to read the story this is just so like Charlie and her mouth.
Even though this read was a little lighter Julia socks it to you in the Epilogue. OMG I totally lost it towards the end. In the beginning they are capturing Andrew (I’ll tell you a little secret, from book #1 or maybe #2 I’ve had a secret desire that Andrew could be reformed. Yes he was a douche but think about it he was captured and around evil for a long time, his revenge and hate I think was just a way of his survival. Okay so I’m delusional). What Julia teases at the end of the epilogue will have you gasping. Who is this mystery woman and what will ultimately happen to Andrew? That’s all I’m saying. I can’t wait for the next release. I’m also curious when we’ll find out more about Sydney’s abilities, Will we see a mate for Max hmmm what other mischief can we get those men into. LOL 5*

This is the 6th book of the series so far, and they just keep getting hotter. The characters are gorgeous, i wouldnt mind a dragon who wanted to look after me. The erotic scenes are well written, not sleazy in any way, and there is action too. Traitors, Were Panthers, all kinds of shifters, witches and wizards too, all included in a fabulous series. The baddie, well, he features in every book, and just keeps getting better as it goes on. I pre order all of Julia's books so i dont miss any. If you havent read any yet, do please, you will not be disappointed. I very much recommended Julia she is lovely, always happy to talk to you, and her books are simply fascinating. Recommend very highly, please read you wont be disappointed. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++


Wolves of Willow Bend Book 7: River Wolf

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

Brett Dalton is the Alpha of Hudson River and since one of his wolves went mad and murdered several members of his pack beneath his nose, he’s isolated himself from his pack mates. The once, easygoing Alpha has become taciturn, remote and unforgiving. His pack worries for him, but they too have suffered a devastating blow. When several members leave to join Three Rivers, the pack faces the threat of dissolution until Brett’s best friend and Lone Wolf, Luc Danes returns to Hudson River accompanied by a beautiful young human—or is she? Something about the woman consumes Brett. Has Luc come home to help or to take the pack from Brett?

Colby Jenson wrapped up 300 hours of community service working at the hospital in Maine when an injured Luc Danes rolled through the door. The impossible patient drove the nurses crazy, but when Danes offered her a thousand dollars no strings attached to drive him to New York, she agreed. The last thing she expected was to arrive in the small Westchester County town and to meet the craziest collection of residents—especially the devastatingly sexy Brett Dalton. He turns her inside out, but the man’s vicious temper and cold manner confuses the hell out of her. Part of her wants to hit the road, the rest wants to make him smile and Luc keeps making excuses for her to stay.

Then she sees the wolves…and is exposed to a world she can barely imagine. When Luc offers to keep her with him, Brett suddenly rouses at the challenge. Now she will find herself torn between two men—one she cares about and one she could love.

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. He’s her mate and she won’t allow anything or anyone to stop her from claiming him.

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 ??

For centuries Emma has sought to keep herself from being bound to a mate, immortal or otherwise. But Jean-Cristophe is an alpha wolf, and he will take what belongs to him.

She will be claimed, marked, and ravaged until she screams his name, even if that means first stripping her bare and spanking her until she is sore, sobbing, and shamefully in need.

I read an advanced copy of this book and couldn't wait to buy my own copy - which I did the moment it came out. If you're a fan of the Wayward Mates and their Post Apocalyptic descendants then this book has it all. You can read it as a stand-alone but if you like it you'll want to read the rest.

This is not my first Delta James so I know what to expect and she did not disappoint. In her books, she usually has discipline in the form of the Alpha Hero spanking the strong willed heroine. This book was pretty steamy hot and I really liked the time lapse involved in the story. Until the next listen, which there will be from this author and narrator as he does a great job also.

I enjoyed the way the author switched the sex of who was the wolf and who was the vampire. And, the author was clever in having the story told during different eras, which made for a complete understanding of both the plot and the subplot.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this "series."

Reviewed in the United States on August 3, 2020
I really loved the story of the young girl, well woman, who is kidnapped and turned into a vampire. The sex is way overboard for my taste and after a while i just skimmed through it. Unfortunately when i do that I definitely feel that i am losing out on parts of the story, potentially. But we jump from Regency into the Future and our Vampire Heroine is now a sexy predator but still unfortunately hunted by her Vampire Sire. Like I said, lots of really good story here.

Now along comes the Hero who is a Wolf Shifter. And there's all kinds of good details set up in his back story. Unfortunately he's got that Domestic Violence versus Domestic Discipline thing going on ... Let's face it, this Author enjoys having her heroines being bruised up by their men. Flung around a room, against walls, onto floors, furniture, terrorized, bleeding, injured - its all OK because the guy loves her and she gets orgasms so what's the problem? And in this case the Heroine points out REPEATEDLY to wolfboy that there is no difference between what he is forcing on her than what her Vampire Sire forced on her. Yet he's pissed at her VS? So why is he doing the same things if not worse to her? But wolfboy is like well that doesn't matter because you are my fated mate so i can treat you however i want and you will just have to put up with it.

There's romance for you, folks.

Still, fun story. Especially the little twist at the end. 💖👍💋👻
