I’m Starr Elizabeth Conner. 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.
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?
Cara Bristol has come out with another awesome read! Alien Mate is a Sci-Fi romance with a hot alien alpha and a smart, take-no-prisoners *snorts* heroine. This is kind of like a mail -order plot line but oh-so much better!
Starr is falsely accused of murder and she ends up being put on a ship and being sent off to Dakon and a Dakonian named Torg, who dislikes her at first, but that changes fairly soon. There’s lots of little twists here and this book is a step-up from the usual sci-fi romance.
I’m hoping that this is the start of a new series from Cara because it was thoroughly enjoyable and I would love to see more. Cara absolutely rocks!
