Authored by Laurann Dohner, Ral’s Woman: Zorn Warriors, Book 1 blends science fiction and erotica. Human Ariel only believes in extraterrestrial life after she is kidnapped and taken hostage to another universe. Her captors are the Anzon, aliens who take hostages, enslave other aliens, and stage prize fights. Unimpressed by their human captive, the Anzon make Ariel a fight prize. Another hostage of the Anzon is Ral, an alien who is a Zorn warrior. Although desperate for freedom for himself and his people, Ral desires Ariel and succeeds in winning her. Their deep sensuous connection begins the series of intergalactic encounters recounted in the Zorn Warrior series. Simone Lewis tantalizingly narrates this and future encounters between human females and the virile Zorn warriors.
Ariel never knew aliens existed until she finds herself kidnapped and taken from Earth. When the Anzon declare humans useless, she learns her fate - prize for the winner of a brutal fight between large, muscled alien men.
Ral is a Zorn warrior. He has also been kidnapped by the Anzon, along with his crew. Forced into slavery, he's got one thing on his mind - freeing his people. That is, until he sees the small human woman he's willing to fight to win. He doesn’t just want her body, he wants her heart forever.
In the hands of a hot alien, Ariel is about to discover how pleasurable captivity can be.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I totally love Laurann Dohner books...Sometimes her books follow a pattern...but I think that is what makes her books so great... You always know what to expect...but there is always this one factor that makes each book different... which makes me love the way she writes.
This was an awesome story of Ral and Ariel... Ral is a Zorn Warrior trapped on another planet after being captured...then along comes Ariel who gets captured too.. Ral ends up winning Ariel in a battle... and that where the story gets so interesting...
I simply love the Zorn world... So real like if such a place truly existed...
Great credit, buy or sale... So enjoyable... Smexy time starts early on.. and it was awesome.
Nice narration too!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Where do I begin with this book *sigh* .... let me start off by saying how much I love Laurann Dohner. After reading her New Species, Mate Set and Cyborg Seduction series I was really looking forward to reading this. I was very disappointed in the way this story turned out. The story had no backbone, it was just page after page of confusion and a constant disconnect on the reader’s part. I guess after finishing this, I was more intrigued by the concept of the story and not the actual story itself. Although, the book had plenty of action and adventure, I felt there was no detail. The story just went from one obstacle to another. I know many people liked this book, but it just didn't sit well with me. I will not be continuing with this series but will always be loyal t Laurrann's work. :(
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This one is really easy to enjoy. I do like the big over sexed alien and the human aspect. I do enjoy a "hot" story and this one is. It seems like a very good start to what could be an interesting series. Things happen at a very fast pace but I don't have a problem with it in this story. It's under the $10 price so just go ahead and purchase it and save your credit for the more expensive books. I'm off to book 2.
I am on the fence with this book. I like sci-fi romances and have read a few. I guess my biggest complaint is that you just did not get the connection between Ral and Ariel. I think the author should have built this up more before she just put them in bed together. I need to feel tension or passion before characters fall in love. Having said that, the book did have some good parts it just needed more build up. I also think that the series may get better. You get a glimpse of the next book and it seems to have potential. Overall I think this book has an interesting concept but lacks some forethought. I know that they wear ear pieces to understand each other but you would still think that there would be different words for things. For example; I cannot believe that all body parts would be called the same in different worlds. The author does make some attempts to be creative but falls short. I think that Jaid Black does a better job at this. In the end I think that you will either love or hate this book. I would buy it before using a credit. It is also short only 5 hours long and so I feel a bit cheated on using a credit for this length of story. Having said that if I need a book to fill in time, I think I will try one more to see if there are improvements. So I am sitting on the fence with this one.
First I will warn you, this is a very sexually explicit book. It is also not the typical "Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind" I found this to be a fun, sexy, and very enjoyable love story. Ral and Ariel have some interesting situations come up and its fun to listen to them learn about one another. The cultural difference and not always being able to understand one another cause some interesting problems. It also shows what can happen when some one's family sticks their nose into your business where it doesn't belong. It almost cost Ariel dearly. I also expected Ral to knock his youngest brother out!!! It will be interesting to see what happens in future books.
If you liked the Krinar series, then I think you will like this one as well. I have already gotten the next 3 in this series and now it's time to listen to them. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Earth woman gets kidnapped by blue aliens. They (blue) aliens have captures other species across galaxy, making them slave in mines. The blue aliens make her (earth female) a prize for the mining slaves fight for her. Contest prize.. Her. The largest (dark skinned handsome) alien wins and instead of giving her away (like he usually did) or sharing her. He keeps her to be his only. He likes her because she LOOKS different and act different which appeals to him. It causes problems because other want to sample her also. He has to fight to keep her.. Which he does. It turns out that He and his kind were captured while they were on vacation. He turns out to be a prince and he & his pack escape back to their planet. Problems developed over the earth female. First the aliens complaining that she was not good enough for the prince THEN every MALE wanted her (as an exotic creature).. To keep the peace plans to grab more earth females for the men of the planet where females are few. This starts the idea of the series.
Maybe the narrator thought she was reading for people that don't speak English. Otherwise I have no idea why the narration, particularly men's parts, was so mind numbingly slow.
I read Laurann for the light, not-too-serious fantasy nature of her stories. Also, like most of us, I think she's great with the sex scenes. This book, however, just bugged me a bit with all the things that just didn't seem feasible. I know it's fantasy, but I like fantasy where they really pay attention to little details like the whole language thing. How is it that aliens who've never heard of earth going to be able to translate their language to English, of all the languages on earth? And how do they know slang? And curse words? I'm sorry, those things just bug me. But the story was ok and the narration was good. I'm interested enough to read the next book.

For the passed few months I have been listening-reading Laurann Dohner books and I know what I'm getting...hot sexy men with hot scenes.
I wish the book was longer then 5 hours and I like that when you finish with one that you get a sneak preview to the next book.
Simone Lewis did a good job reading. The reason why I only gave her 3 stars is because I have my favorite narrators and this is my first time listen to her....trust me I would mention if she is bad.
Great price too I saved my credit and just bought it.
"Predictable and Lack-lustre"
A human woman who is Kidnapped by aliens seeking compatible to breeding partners as their race is struggling to reproduce. Kyra determined to be incompatible is given to the slaves for whoever is the prizefighter. Obviously Ral wins!
As an offering its bit boring and predictable. The story also becomes annoying due to a lack of character development, only because she comes to terms with her capture, ownership and the love she feels is almost instantaneous.
It an average and predictable alien romance but not one of LD's better ones. Some moment had excitement but by the end the book was lagging and I was not begging for the next book, in fact maybe struggling to finish the book if I am being brutally honest...
Simone Lewis gives a great performance despite the less than thrilling material.
Kidnapped from earth by a reptilian alien race to see if she is compatible to breed, Kyra finds herself given up as a fighting prize to the encumbered slaves of the space mine she finds herself on.
I found the this offering a little predictable and a bit boring in comparison to some of LD's other works, only because she comes to terms with her capture, ownership and the love she feels is almost instantaneous, even the erotic scenes where a bit dull that I found myself skipping to get to the rest of the story. I have obviously read too many of these types of books and become jaded.
An okay Sci/Fi romance but not one of LD's better ones, I personally would skip straight onto the 'New Species' series by the same author if you want a treat.
Simone Lewis gives a great performance despite the material.
