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.
Mated to the Vikens
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this story.
This is the 8th book in the Interstellar Brides series by Grace Goodwin. The whole series is great and this book is one of my favorites.This is the second story that takes place on Viken, the first one revolved around the three men destined to become Kings of the planet and with their bride, Leah unite their world once again. Leah was also a bride from earth so the Vikens were aware of the compatibility of earth brides with their males.
The three Kings have now requested that the warriors assigned to protect the royal family mate using the interstellar bride program. The bonded group, Rolf, Eric and Gunnar can not refuse. Each warrior has their own history and past traumas but together they are a formidable cohesive team. They agree to go through the matching process even if they don't totally believe they can open up again or that it can truly bring them a female they will love.
I fell in love with all three males they all had their strengths and weaknesses, and of course role preferences when it comes to relationships.
Of course the Viking like men are all hunky swoonworthy and as a bonded group can set any earth woman on fire.
Sophia has had a difficult few years, her mom's terminal illness has her desperate to provide her with medicine for her pain. She gets her involved with criminals who help provide her with meds for her mom but use her as a front woman and leave her to take the rap when discovered. Her choice is 25 years in jail or become an interstellar bride and leave earth forever. The strange matching processs mates her to not one but a group of three men on Viken.
Having gone through so much Sophia figures she can handle just about anything. She has become a brave and toughened women and is tested even further when her transportation to Viken sends her to the wrong local, placing her in eminent danger. There is evil and those that oppose the new regime are plotting against the new Kings, their Queen and child. Feeling she has gone from one nightmare to another the brave Sophia escapes.
When her mates to be find out the deception and treason that has occurred they rush to rescue Sophia,and the adventure begins.
Grace Goodwin is amazing at writing sizzling hot love/sex scenes and scenarios, this book as well gets 10 stars of hotness but there is much more to this story. The stories in these books pull the reader in from the very beginning, This Vikens storyline is much more than a human/alien mating, the characters and their backgrounds more detailed and developed, the Viken world is wonderfully expanded upon as well.
I really enjoyed this book and was not able to put it down. It is a five star addition to the series that brings the reader an exciting mixture of romance, suspense, danger, intrigue, emotional trials and healing, action, and yes lots of steamy hot scenes that will leave readers breathless.
