I'm Starr Elizabeth Connor. 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.Thoughts on Alien Mate: I do enjoy a good "mostly unwilling female shipped to the far end of space to be a hunky alien's bride" story. Seriously. There should be more of these. I'd read them all so hard they'd need a cigarette after.
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?
So. This book gives up Starr and Torg. Starr is pretty much the complete opposite of what Torg expects to get when the ship of ladies lands. But he falls for her all the same. Which is good because hello, frozen wasteland of a planet. The downside of all this is that not everyone is thrilled to be welcoming a bunch of alien women to their cozy caves.
Considering all the women sent were convicted of crimes, this makes for some tension. Especially for Starr, whose crime was murder, which, as Guardians of the Galaxy taught me, is pretty much the worst crime there is.
Needless to say, things do not go as smoothly as they could have. But there are plenty of sexy times between our H/h and...actually, I don't even need to add to that. Sexy times make everything better. For real.
