His Virgin Mate (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin
Date of Publication: March 16, 2017
One look, one touch, and there is no denying the heat…
Alexis Lopez just turned twenty-one, her parents are dead, and life isn’t exactly what she’d hoped. Her lackluster response to men is just one problem she’s eager to solve by volunteering for the Interstellar Bride Program. Sharing sensual dreams with her new mate is just the beginning. One look at the large, dominant alien who claims she belongs to him sets her body on fire. When he tells her, in explicit detail, how he’ll claim her in every way, she is eager to give her mate everything, body and soul.
But things aren’t that easy. Von of Everis is a Hunter. After years fighting the Hive wars, he’s home, and one of the top ranking military police in his region. But his bed, and his life, are empty until Alexis arrives. One look at his innocent little bride and he knows she belongs to him, but that claim is challenged by one of the most feared warriors on the planet.
Stolen kisses and mind-numbing pleasure won’t save Von from a deadly duel. Falling in love with his new mate drives a tenderness he didn’t believe he would ever feel. But Von is a Hunter, a warrior, a protector, and someone is trying to take what belongs to him. Someone is using his mate to set a trap…
Hey Grace Goodwin fans! Grace has come out with a new series in the Interstellar Brides Coalition, and this time, it’s all about the virgins! I’ll be honest, virgin books can be a real hit or miss for me, usually because of the way the heroine behaves for one, and then there’s the hero and how he behaves towards said virginity. But this one was a good one!
In the first book of the series, we have our heroine, Alexis Lopez, or Alex for short. She’s 21 and she’s held on to her virginity because no one has interested her enough to want to give it up to. But when she goes to the testing center, she quickly matches and has erotic dreams about her new mate. She also finds out that the birthmark she has is significant to her mate and his race on Everis as well.
Alex quickly makes friends with two other women who match and have marks as well.When she gets to Everis, before her mate, Von has a chance to claim her, a Major named Cosmo decides that Alex is his. He hates Von, and will do anything to cause trouble.
Will Alex find out what it’s like to have the Everis “Claiming Sequence” fully fulfilled, or will someone take her from Von forever?
This was a truly enjoyable read from Grace, as are all of the Interstellar Bride books. I do admit, I have a bunch to catch-up on in the whole series, but I’m going to have a blast doing it! I just LOVE this series!
This book gets 5 Super Stellar Stars

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.
