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 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.

Interstellar Brides Book 1: Assigned a Mate

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.

Matched and Mated (Interstellar Brides® Book 16)

The newfound confidence I’d discovered within myself was something Brax had given me over the last few months. But tonight would either be a new beginning for us, or an ending. The friends with benefits arrangement we’d had since the beginning wasn’t enough for me anymore. A wild few days when he was in town and off-duty couldn’t satisfy me any longer. Oh, he’d give me orgasms and make me a sweaty heap, but I wanted more than sex with him. I was finally whole, ready to give my heart away— and Brax was more than halfway to claiming it already. I wanted everything Natalie had, everything I’d followed her to Trion to have for myself. I loved looking after Noah, and his new little sister, but seeing Natalie give birth to a second child— the little baby girl now only days old— made me yearn for the first time in years. My ovaries practically exploded just holding her. But Brax didn’t want babies. He didn’t want a mate. He didn’t want anything more than a fun time. I wasn’t mad. I hadn’t wanted more either… until I did. And that wasn’t his fault.

Grace Goodwin. Matched and Mated: Interstellar Brides® Program – Book 16 (Kindle Locations 84-92).

Miranda Doyle has spent months in the arms of a mysterious Trion doctor. His hands are skilled at more than just healing, but their casual “friends with benefits” arrangement isn’t enough for her. She wants it all, and the Interstellar Brides Program guarantees her not just a mate, but a perfect match.

Doctor Valck Brax is in love with Miranda, a human female who surrenders to his touch so beautifully. Finally ready to claim her forever, he resigns and returns to her with mating adornments in hand. But he’s too late. Miranda is gone, half a universe away and in the arms of a fierce Prillon warrior.

Captain Trist Treval of Battlegroup Zakar is a cold and cunning fighter. Infamous for his unforgiving nature and calculating ways, war has been his life. Now, with three little words, “you’ve been matched,” everything changes. He’ll destroy anything and everyone who tries to take his beautiful new mate from him, including the foolish doctor from Trion who arrives on the battleship claiming she belongs to him.

She’s been matched, but who will she choose as her mate?

What I Thought:

Her Mate’s Secret Baby (Interstellar Bride Program #9)

“Roark.” I buried my fingers in his hair and held him to me, saying his name to ground myself, to remind myself of what was really happening here. Roark was mine. My mate, and starting with his mouth on my nipple, my lover. Finally, I would have someone who wanted me. Who wanted to be with me. Who would spend time with me and put me first in his life. My mate.
