ABDUCTED, AUCTIONED, & STOLEN BY AN ALIEN by Amanda Milo Review
ABDUCTED, AUCTIONED, & STOLEN BY AN ALIEN: An Alien Mate Romance - Amanda Milo

 

AROKH
I broke the rules and stole an auction item from her buyers.
Because somehow, they'd managed to abduct a Gryfala princess.
Though... she doesn't look, or act, or sound quite like I thought one of her kind would.
But I'm merely a Rakhii gladiator; this is the closest I've actually ever been to a princess.
I'd be considered lucky indeed if she chose me to guard her.
Instead, I want more.
I need her to claim me.
Because she doesn't know it, but now I can't let her go.


ANGIE
Woke up in a freaking auction pen.
With no coffee.
But there were aliens.  And they didn't bid on me out of the goodness of their hearts.
FML.
Then this nice alien showed up in the nick of time, but he keeps referring to me as "Princess" and I'm starting to worry what he'll do when he finds out that there's been a little case of mistaken identity, that I'm not royalty - see, I'm not even whatever alien he mistook me for...
I'm just a human.

 

Review

 

 

If you are a fan of the sub genre of Science Fiction Romance that features abducted humans adjusting to aliening cultures, this book will be your jam.

 

The title is awful. Why is it awful? Impossible to remember as unique and makes the book about a kind genre erotic fetish (not that there is anything wrong with that) than about the romance, plot, characters, and fun of the themes of the sub genre.

 

If this book hadn't been recommended to me and on Kindle Unlimited. I would never had taken the chance of picking it up.

 

Having read and really enjoyed it, I will try to follow the writer (social media and website aren't up yet) and hope Milo puts out more books in this series and world.

 

The world building is really good with fully realized culture of the hero and the people that he assumes the heroine is from.

 

There are hints that other cultures and HEAs will be explored like cat like aliens and amphibious aliens. A poly love set of space pirates. Woo hoo!

 

Our hero is a super thoughtful, protective, respectful, brave loving warrior elephant/rhino dragon humanoid alien. Yea! He was great.

 

The heroine is great too though she could be much more developed. Sometimes, we suddenly just find out stuff about her like we knew it all along. She is funny and practical.

 

The couple is on the run and the hero is dealing with all his cultural norms and bonding. The heroine is just adjusting. There is a language barrier for a while that is well done.

 

They just like each other and so their falling in love makes sense and make me happy.

 

Okay, so...need that website and news of the next book....

Asteroid by Viola Grace Review
Asteroid - Viola Grace

Sebena has spent her time in the Alliance using her accuracy to blow large rocks into tiny rocks suitable for refinement. When she picks up a heat signature she has to pursue it, even if it means doing it on her own time. Finding a life pod is not really a surprise, but having it functioning and its occupant alive is quite the shock.

Issul is the avatar of the planet Zeering and has been lost in the asteroid field for a century. Opening his eyes in the mining vessel, he sees his rescuer and both he and the world within him have a visceral reaction to her.

 

 

Review

 

I adore this heroine who insists on doing the right thing and is reward with love.  Her job is cool too and the romance fun.

Rebel Kato (Shifters of the Primus #1) by Elyssa Ebbott Review
Rebel Kato (Shifters of the Primus Book 1) - Elyssa Ebbott

He takes what he wants. And he wants me.

When we run out of fuel hundreds of light years from Earth, our only hope is a nearby planet. There’s just one problem: it’s home to the most savage aliens in the galaxy.

But when the Primus warriors board our ship, they haven’t come to take all of us. Their prince just wants me. And if he doesn’t choose me as his mate, he’s going to kill everyone I’ve ever known.

Kato’s a deadly alpha shifter with shimmering golden skin and a tendency to leave bodies in his wake. He’s dangerous and has an ego as big as his golden spear. But does he just want a few nights of passion, or a woman to call his princess?

When murderous factions try to keep us apart, I will have more to worry about than just surviving the irresistible prince’s touch. I will have to choose between the danger of being beside him or the certain death that awaits outside his protection.

He has protected me so far. But when his king demands my death, will my prince rebel to save me?

 

 

 

Review


The world was interesting. Trees growing up more than a mile from a watery bottom. But we get no real details of how this world works.

 

Everything makes no sense. Motivation. Whatever. Actual love story. Nah.

 

There is a base here but the book is too frantic to develop anything I want to spend time with in the end.

Fall (Hold, #3) by Claire Kent Review
Fall (Hold Book 3) - Claire Kent

As a pilot and a smuggler, Lenna has spent her life flying under the radar in Coalition space--taking care of herself, not relying on anyone. She's always liked it that way.

But now she's stranded without any resources on a stone-age planet, and the only way to survive is to hook up with a bunch of cavemen. She'll do whatever she needs to do in order to survive in their world--even if it means letting one of them take her as a mate.

She doesn't expect to like it. Or like him. Or lose her heart in the process.

 

 

Review 

 

For many people, this might be a guilty pleasure read. Caveman Alien. Yeah.

 

I have no guilt. Well, a little guilt for the heavy handed simple living rejecting a life with more agency but then getting agency in the choice stuff but other than that.... no guilt!

 

I love language barriers and cultural adaptation romance. Some really fun world building here and I believe the love story. I can see this become a silly comfort read.

Lanie's Choice (Survivors of Paradise, #1) by Kimberlyn Day Review
Lanie's Choice: Survivors of Paradise (Book 1) - Kimberlyn Day

Finding big, strong aliens isn’t all that hard once you start looking for them. Motivating said aliens to protect your species from plague-infested space pirates? Ehhh...that takes a bit of bargaining.

For a warrior species on the brink of extinction, the price is an old-fashioned marriage alliance.

Which is how Lanie ends up speed-dating on a moon in the middle of nowhere—with no liquid courage in sight. Horns. Tails. Fangs. Claws. How's a girl to choose? Mix-and-match monsters as potential mates convince Lanie she’s offering herself up as a not-so-virgin sacrifice.

…and then she gets to know Delloruin, with his endearing protective streak and raw sexuality. Fen, who thinks deep and considers all sides while melting her with his soulful eyes. Hilom, who’s as sweet as he is deadly, a cocky fighter with a heart of gold.

It would be easy to love each of them…and hard to choose just one of them.

Thankfully, some aliens come in variety packs.

 

 

 

Review

This is a short science fiction romance with many common tropes but the heroes are sweet and fierce as is the heroine and it will be fun to see where this world goes.
