Their union could save a species. First, they'll have to save themselves.
The Auxem are desperate. A virus has killed all their women and is beginning to affect the males' fertility. Their only chance for survival is mating with human women.
Jayne Lynch is in charge of supervising the small group of volunteers who will be test subjects for a breeding program with the aliens. She's supposed to be impartial, but then she meets Arnon, the dark-haired, dark-eyed, muscular crown prince. The chemistry between them is too strong to ignore.
Arnon is equally drawn to the curvy, blonde-haired Earthling. His father, the king, doesn't approve, but Arnon thinks Jayne is perfect - until he learns that she hasn't been entirely honest with him.
The catch is that Arnon is hiding a painful secret of his own. Can he and his mate learn to trust each other in time to save their marriage and the breeding program? Or is their happy ending doomed...along with everyone on Auxem?
Auxem is Book 13 in the TerraMates series and a stand-alone, full-length science fiction romance. There are no cliffhangers, and a happy ending is guaranteed!

Another great book by Lisa Lace. I love the dual POV. This story is about the creator of Terra Mates daughter, who volunteers to be a bride to a prince of the alien nation that have lost all their women to a virus. They are looking for women that do not carry a certain gene because this gene only produces mail offspring. They need female offspring. The Auxem are keeping a secret about themselves. Also a mistake has been made on the test for the gene and is not found out until after Armon and Jayne bonded. If you love Lisa Lace this is must. I received this audio book free in exchange for a honest review.
this is another awesome book by Lace that also gives you something to think about. what secrets would you keep to save an entire race? if you always wished you could fly like a bird would you be willing to pay the price to do so? also there is the price on our personal relationships from keeping secrets. there is adult content of course, and a great story behind these questions :)

How smitten Arnon was with Jayne right from the moment he first saw her.
Arnon was my favorite. He sincerely cared for the people of his planet and desired to find a way to take care of them by finding a way to insure their future.
Faith Clark's rendering of Jayne. She seemed to capture Jayne's sense of humor, and wonder, best.
Another great story in Lisa Lace's TerraMates series. Arnon and Jane Lynch's story is the sixth book I've read in the series and definitely one of my favorites. I really liked it from the very beginning when Jayne asks Arnon, "Are you an angel?" and he says, "No, but you are." It was a sweet scene, showing that Arnon was smitten from the moment he saw Jayne even though he didn't expect to ever see her again.
Arnon has come to Earth with his father and brothers representing his home planet of Auxem. They hope to find women on earth willing to marry the men of their planet because their population is mostly male therefore, dying out. As the director of TerraMates, Jayne's mother is working with them to find a suitable women and brings Jayne along for the negotiation dinner. Arnon can't believe his angel is there, and lucky for him Jayne was just as intrigued with him.
They fall in love as they work on the project of finding women to match with the men from Auxem. These two really are perfect for one another and quickly form a strong bond. Their physical chemistry is amazing, but it's their emotional bond that brings them through the unexpected problems that turn up in their relationship.
I'm really hoping Ms. Lace will follow up with more of Ari and Elle's story, or perhaps Anders will find love with someone in the next group of women. I listened to the audio version and enjoyed the alternating narrative from both a male and female narrator. 4 stars

Terra Mates RULES!!! The idea for 2nd generation Terra Mates brides is a fantastic one. Jayne is the daughter of Sophie and Khellan. Sophie, the founder of TerraMates, who married an alien of her own in the book Origins is sought out by the President and the Auxem King to screen and obtain brides for the fast becoming extinct Auxem race. Arnon is the oldest son of the Auxem King who meets Jayne under unusual circumstances and a fast growing attraction between the two begins. Jayne volunteers to be one of the first group of brides to bond with an Auxem male and travel to their world to help produce the next generation of Auxem children, female children who will help replenish their race. She is also going to be a representative of the Terra Mates Agency, making sure that the brides are taken care of and monitoring their emotional well being to send results back to Earth. Secrets, sickness and political obstacles threaten to tear apart the couple and test the strength of their love. I Loved this story and am looking forward to seeing what Ms. Lace has in store for us next.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
In this 13th book, the writing genius of Lisa Lace continues. Each of the books in this series is a stand alone story. Lisa has a very creative and talented mind. Each book is different from all the previous ones. Jayne's relationship with the alien, Arnon, is so very different from all the other characters in all the other books. Worth reading. I think Faith Clark needs to not try doing a male voice. She ruins the picture of Arnon I have in my mind. Logan McAllister does a great job. Love this series.
There were several discrepancies and unanswered questions that really bothered me. I think they need to be cleared up better.
I usually love audiobooks that have both a male and female narrator but I almost wish this one was just Logan. He nailed both characters. I enjoyed both narrator's but I was not a fan of Faith's "male" voice for Arnon, it just didn't feel right for him. Faith did great with Jane, don't get me wrong.
I had a very hard time processing how to rate this book. I loved it but at the same time there were several discrepancies and unanswered questions that really bothered me. It starts off fast and dreamy with a lot of sexual tension. There are a ton of new characters, some new back story information, and a bunch of future potential for additional stories for the other characters!
Jayne Lynch and Arnon are great characters. They have spark from the very first moment. They both value family, are intelligent, hard workers and put others before themselves. Their story may well be my favorite TerraMates love story so far.
My only issue with the story is that there are a lot of contradictions, a few discrepancies that the author attempts to clear up but after you finish you realize they never really were and a few side story lines that you are left hanging on.
Like I said before, this was a great love story so that earns stars but I really hope that Lisa finishes some of the side stories!!!
The male narrator was great; however the female narrator's "male" voice was not good at all. It was sometimes hard to remember the two male voices were the same character because they were so dramatically different.
