Publisher's Summary

Earth is losing the war with the Anquesh. The world government needs TerraMates to find a bride for an alien warrior and finalize a peace treaty with the dangerous race.

Jennifer Carden never thought Kai would select her as his mate. He's tall, dark, devilishly handsome, and different from all the males she's ever known. Once Kai decides Jenn is his sindare, she's taken to an alien planet.

On Anquera, she discovers there will be competition to win her marriage rights. And things are different in space. What does it mean when the word for wedding ceremony translates to "trial by combat"?

Jenn's going to find out.

This story takes place in the TerraMates universe, but can be listened to as a standalone novel.

    Story
    "Action Packed"

    this book has it all. Action and romance.
    This story is about Jenn who signs up for Terra Mates for the 2000 credits if not picked. She did not figure she would be picked to be a bride and did not want to be. She had already come out of bad relationship. She just needed some money. Earth and Anquera had been at war a long time and it was decided that Kai the stepson to the emperor would got earth and choose from one of the women from Terra Mates exchange for a treaty between the two planets but also the the emperor was also trying to get an alliance with the Similcue to help with the war against Earth. Jenn hides in a closet because she does not want to be picked and Kai getting tired of all the questions etc with the Terra mates hides in the same closed. After talking to each he realizes she is is Sindare(mate). They both sneak away and get ambushed by assassins he takes her aboard his ship and they leave for Anquera. Where the action starts. The Similicue attack Anquera and they also have the intention to attach Earth. So Kai and Jenn and is soldiers have to work with Soldiers on Earth ships to try and defeat the Similicue. Can they do????? This was one of my favorites in this series. The narration was great and the story line was well developed and fantastic. I received this book free for an honest review.

    "Craving ~ Awesome Alien Romance!"


    Another "out of this world" story in the TerraMates series! And one of my favorites!

    Jenn is down on her luck, her husband, well the husband who was actually married to someone else, left her broke. Now, she's desperate, and is in need of quick cash so she decides to give TerraMates a try.

    Kai's race have been fighting with earth and humans for a long time, and in attempt to bring peace, comes to earth to find a wife. Hundreds of women are applying for the position but none of the women are what he is looking for. While the selection process is going on he needs time alone, and decides to take a walk and stumbles across Jenn. From the moment he sees her, he knows she's his sindari or what humans call soul mates.

    After some issues, Jenn finds herself transported to his planet, and eventually falls in love with him. However, his planet has strange marriage customs, and she must participate in their honored Marriage Battle.

    With unknown enemies, unexpected attacks, lots of plot twist, and challenges, this was an excellent addition to the series.Each story is a great stand alone, has a unique plot, and a HEA.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    "One of my favorite TerraMates stories"

    This is a great addition to the TerraMates series. It was well written and interesting.

    Jenn has had a lot of bad luck in the beginning of this book. She married someone that was already married and before finding out about his dual life he took all her saved money and left her broke.

    Kai is a warrior from an alien race that has been in war with earth. He comes to earth to forge an alliance by choosing a women from earth to marry.

    There are some twists and turns. A lot of action in this book. It keeps you engaged and interested all the way to the end

    I'm always pleased with the dual POV & the HEA conclusions.

    The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.

    **This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion**

    "So maybe this is my favorite TerraMates book....."
    Any additional comments?

    I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. Ok so this book was really good. I enjoyed the fact that Jenn could hold her own. Yes she had her moments of self doubt but that made it even better when she would dominate a situation. She could fight but didn't even realize it and she knew how to give a kick in the butt pep talk. I loved Jen she did the female population proud. Kai wasn't so bad, especially when he was in his war rage...things became real. Oh and just know that a woman did kick butt in this story, I mean junk talk and kick butt. I appreciate this book and how it really did make me want to shout "You Go Girl". The beginning did piss me off but hey the ending rocked my world. Thanks Lisa Lace for writing a great story and Thank you to Cassandra Miles for breathing life to words on the page!!

    Story
    "SyFy fun"

    This takes place on a planet were having a wedding battle is normal. If the women wins there is no wedding if the male wins they have the wedding. Lol
    Earth is at war with them "the Anquesh" Kai it from this world and he is chosen to make an alliance with earth. He has chosen Jennifer Carden from earth to marry and she is his Sindare "true love".
    There are a few problems: one, his people don't plan to go though with the deal. Two, earth has other plans too. Three, there is another race out to get them all.
    Then the king of Anquesh hears his step son finds his sindare he plans to honor the agreement to earth. But then the other race attacks everything changes
    I really loved this story lots of mystery, drama and intrigue. The characters are great.
    If your a syfy fan this should be alot of fun for you.

    "The Cheetos of Alien Romance"

    Great idea for the plot, but like many of the books in this series, lots of events take place but reactions, emotions, interactions... they could benefit from some more fleshing out. Cheetos are tasty but not a satisfying meal and that is how I'd sum up this story.
    Narrator? Great job!

    "not your typical alien romance"

    let me start by saying the plot is great. there's danger, espionage, the works. character development is also great. they learn a lot about each other and their governments. the sparks are there and with some miscommunication things are kept hopping. I started listening at work, kept going in the car ride home and had to force myself to turn it off so my kids wouldn't hear it lol. let's just say I really really liked this book :)

    Any additional comments?

    This series gets better with each book! This time we meet Jennifer who finds herself the victim of a scammer who married her and drained her bank account. Fearing the loss of everything she enters Terra Mates search for a bride for the Kai from Anquera in order to form a peace treaty to end the war between the two worlds. The ensuing battles, injuries and adventures lead to unexpected things and eventually a powerful love.

    Hearing this story adds so much more excitement and intensity! You feel like you are there going through everything!
