Surrender to the Cyborgs: (Interstellar Brides: The Colony, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin
Date of Publication: February 9, 2017
Wrongly imprisoned whistle-blower Rachel Pierce would rather take her chances with her court appeal than accept her place as the first Interstellar Bride destined for the Colony. She’s stubborn and determined to seek justice—and her freedom—on Earth…but her mates are not willing to risk her life or her future on a system they believe to be both primitive and corrupt.
Maxim of Prillon Prime fought ten long years in the Hive wars. Captured and tortured with his second, Ryston, they escaped only to be rejected by their own people and condemned to life on the Colony with the other “contaminated” cyborg warriors. As leader of Sector 3, it’s Maxim’s duty to set an example for his warriors and summon a bride. When she refuses transport, he can’t allow her rejection to demoralize an entire planet of battle hardened but jaded warriors. Maxim and Ryston transport to Earth where they decide she’s theirs and a maximum security human prison will not keep them apart.
Getting Rachel to the Colony is only the first challenge they will face. Convincing their beautiful mate to surrender to not one, but two dominant warriors is another. Even if they can win her love, a new evil is rising on the Colony and someone close to Maxim will be its first victim. Maxim will be its second, unless Rachel’s love and relentless pursuit of the truth proves strong enough to save him.
There once was a day where I didn’t even think to entertain reading sci fi romance, but now it’s such a huge genre, I gave up the fight and gave in. Besides, with a lot of great writers taking up the mantle, I just had to give in.
I’m glad I did with Grace Goodwin.
While The Interstellar Brides Series isn’t new, this spinoff of it, The Colony is. The Colony is a planet where all of the warriors who were taken by the Hive and “infected” by being given their body parts, are sent to.
Rachel Pierce is a scientist who’s been wrongly convicted of multiple crimes because she was a whistleblower on a cancer drug that was dangerous.While she waits for a retrial that the owners do not want. So she becomes a bride. While on board with her two sexy mates, Rachel discovers something sinister is going on, so she sets about to try figuring it out before lives are lost, including one a little closer to home.
I greatly enjoyed this book, though the mating rituals are a bit off for my tastes with the whole rush to get pregnant. The storyline and the characters, however get a solid 4 Stars for being so enjoyable!

About Grace Goodwin
Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.
Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.
She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.
