I’m Starr Elizabeth Conner. Earth’s government falsely convicted me of a crime, packed me on a ship with other female felons, and sent us to Dakon, a primitive, frozen wasteland of a planet. Why? Earth needs minerals, and Dakon is desperate for females.
But I’m no barbarian’s “mail-order bride,” even if he is super tall, muscular, and the chief of his tribe. He doesn’t want a BBW blonde, either—it’s written all over his chiseled face. He’ll be truly angry if he ever learns what my “crime” was.
I am Torg. I have waited 34 rotations for a mate of my own. With this shipment, I was sure to get a fine, sturdy mate who’ll bear me many daughters. Instead, I receive a small, curvy, pale-haired female who looks at me with anger and fear.
It is only when we “kiss” that I believe things may work out between us. But I’m hearing rumors that Starr and her shipmates are law-breakers. To survive, Dakonians must obey all laws …or be exiled into the frozen wasteland. Just when I have found her, will I have to send my mate to die?
Loved this new sci fi romance series!!!
Starr Connor was working for the government trying to help bring down the Carmichael crime family when she's falsely accused of murder. After having her trial expedited she ended up on a ship full of other criminals headed to the planet Dakon to become the bride of an alien. When she gets to Dakon she's freezing, miserable and being the last picked in the lotto compounded by her intended mate's expression when he meets her, she's ready to be done with this place and go back to Terran. But quickly after she gets to know her mate Torg, we'll just say that things don't always end up how you think they will.
This was a awesome start to this new series. This was a fun, FAST read- hard to put down. I enjoyed the characters, the premise, and there was a good amount of action, adventure and hot steamy scenes. If you like sci-fi, you will enjoy this book! I would definitely read this book again. Can't wait for book 2 in the series!! Happy Reading!!
I'm on a sci-fi high!
Starr Conner, targeted by the powerful Carmichael family, is unjustly convicted of 2nd degree murder. Now she's on her way across the galaxy, one of 50 criminal women destined to become Dakon brides. When it's time for mates to be chosen, she realizes she's the only one in the group who is not tall, dark haired and dark eyed. And no one wants her.
What a position to be in. She is on an inhospitable planet, unwanted, nowhere near the few friends she made on the trip! I think you'll find her story and her mate, Torg's story as fascinating as I do. The situations get pretty hilarious as Torg tries to use some of her idioms. Life here is not easy and there are those who don't want her around. I love how her relationship with Torg grows into something she wants to keep.
This is a delightful sci-fi adventure filled with intrigue, dangers, betrayal and best of all, love! Don't miss it!
Funny, sexy and sweet
I voluntarily received a copy of Alien Mate, in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely freaking LOVED it! This is a genre I read a lot, since I do love my aliens. In Alien Mate I was sucked in from the beginning and I finished the book in one sitting. The world and characters building was outstanding and I am really looking forward to more of this series.
It was funny, sexy, sweet, exciting, and a complete escape; which is what I look for in my alien romance books. I am giving it 5 Huge Boundless stars, I can’t wait to read more!
