Mastered by Her Mates (Interstellar Bride Program #6)

According to the aliens promising to “protect” the Earth from an alleged threat known as the Hive, these human women who stood before me had been mated to alien warriors in the past, and were now widows who had volunteered to serve the Coalition here on Earth.

Oh, and there were more than two-hundred and sixty alien races fighting in the Coalition forces, but they claimed only a fraction were compatible for mating with humans. That seemed odd. And how did they know, if a human had never been sent to space before?

The Coalition ships had shown up a couple months ago, on a Wednesday, June 4 at 6:53 p.m. Eastern Time. Yes, I remember the time exactly, like I’d forget the moment when I found out there really were others “out there”. I’d been hitting the treadmill at the gym, twenty-three minutes into my ninety-minute workout when the television screens lining the walls had all gone crazy. Every channel was suddenly alien ships, alien landings all over the world, and fucking huge, seven-foot tall, yellow alien warriors in black camo armor walking off their little shuttles like they owned us already.

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?

Taken By Her Mates (Interstellar Bride Program #4)

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?

Prince Nial is more than a little bit ticked off at his father. Tossing good warriors away because they survived the Hive was ludicrous. But now he’s taken things a bit too far. He’s rejected Nial’s right to a bride. With a little help from his cousin, Commander Deston, Nial intends to make things right.

You remember the old saying, “When it rains, it pours?” Jessica was having that kind of a day. First, she experienced the hottest dream she could have imagined. Then a planet’s ruler refused her mating to one of his warriors. Finally, since she had been accepted into the bride program, all of her possessions had been taken away. All she was left with the desire to make sure that those who did this to her, pay.

Nial and his second, Anders, were able to rescue Jessica from the Hive members hunting her. The initial plan was to take her to his cousin’s battlegroup but that was thwarted by his father. He could only transfer to the Colony. There he was able to persuade Jessica to put his color on. Then he got the news that changed everything. His father, the Prillon Prime, had been killed and the Ruling Council had called for Death Matches to determine the next Prime. Could he do what he needed to defend his birthright? Would Jessic do what she needed to do to support him?

This is such a great look at the Coalition. This is the first time there is mention of the Colony, which is where the warriors who had been “integrated” by the Hive and then rescued, are sent. After the description of Nial as a bit of a playboy, it was really nice to see a different side of him. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.

Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Program #2)

“Hannah lived that, from Anne’s point of view. And that experience is what drew her to you. Don’t be tender, Zane. Stop holding back. She’s a submissive, and she’s sensitive to your needs. She knows you’re not giving all of yourself. She can sense it the same way you know she’s unhappy and uncomfortable around you. But she doesn’t know what you want her to be, Zane. She needs you to be who you truly are; she needs to know the rules. She won’t give herself to you, she won’t love you, she won’t trust you until you bare your soul to her and let out the beast.”

Goodwin, Grace. Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Book 2) (p. 113). Stormy Night Publications. Kindle Edition.

Hannah belonged to a very small group, Earth women who actually volunteered to be a Bride. She did it to save her brother. Now that she had, she was very surprised at the planet she was matched to. Prillon brides lived on board the warships.

Zane Deston hadn’t wanted a bride. His mother was the one who submitted his information. However, now that she was on board ship, everything was different. The only problem was that she appeared to be so small. Surely someone so small would be too delicate to withstand his full passion. So he held back with her.

This is another great entry for this series. You gotta love the new race and world highlighted by this book. To have not one, but two hunky guys dedicated to you would be every woman’s dream. Not so sure I would appreciate the audience however!
