Life isn't worth living without an Internet connection. I'm always on the computer, video chatting, and even reading books on my phone.
It was natural for me to use the TerraMates app to find a husband.
I didn't know they would match me with a sexy alien who was afraid of high technology. TerraMates sent me to a mysterious planet where the penalty for having a smartphone was execution!

I love TerraMates short stories because they are complete, have a great plot, and good mix of romance, suspense, and action.
Poor Annalee, she did not know what she was getting into when she decided to become a TerraMate and marry an Alien. TerraMates sent her to a planet with no technology! She's certainly a better person than me, as this would have been a deal breaker for me! However, like any sensible earth female, she's not parting with her cell phone, and sneaks it with her when she goes to the planet. Sadly, taking this "contraband" will cause her more problems than it is worth, because on this planet they will execute anyone who is caught with any type of technology.
When Annalee arrives on the planet to meet her future husband, Jesse, for the first time, she's thinking how sexy he is, but he's not thinking the same thing. However, he knows he must marry her, or risk losing the family's farm. In order for Jesse to inherit the farm, he must be married, but no one from his home planet will marry him since he's been deemed a renegade for something that happened in his past.
The day after Annalee and Jesse are wed, the Bureau of Purity come to their farm to conduct a search, and Annalee's technology "contraband" is discovered. Dread fills her as everyone meekly stands by while the Bureau is preparing to take her to be executed in two days. Before the Bureau leaves with Annalee, Jesse requests to say goodbye to his wife who he's only been married to for a day and whispers in her ear "Be ready. Don't sleep." A little bit of hope begins to grow inside Annalee as she wonders if Jesse will rescue her, and if he will make it in time.
I loved the dual narration, both Cassandra and Noel did a great job.
This was another great addition to the Terra Mates series. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review!
Books are the doors to other places. READ!!!!
When Annalee and Jesse both realized they loved each other and Annalee knew she would not go back to Earth.
I liked how the heroine tried to live without modern conveniences because this world decided to no longer use anything scientific or technical due to something that happened in the past.
I would not get the same emotions as with me reading versus how they bring the characters to life. Audio books are like watching TV with no picture.
Modern girl goes back in time.
The story begin with both Jesse and Annalee having a purpose for a marriage. Both unsure how it would end at the end of the year. One needed money and the other a wife so he could inherit his fathers farm. Even though they had a rocky start it all worked out for the both of them. Annalee came from Earth to a world that has chosen to no longer embrace modern technology. No electricity, modern bathroom etc. The punishment for being caught with this type of contraband is death. Annalee manages to bring her smartphone by hiding it on her person in a odd place. She does not think much about it but this will prove to get her into a lot of trouble. What she does not know is her new husband is part of a band of rebels that are know as renegades. They want to bring back technology. He even has been branded with a R due to a discretion when he was a kid. this is why he cannot get a wife without going off planet. All in all things do work out. This book made laugh and kept me on the edge of my seat. I recommend this book. I receive book free for an honest review.
this one began a little weird but rapidly changed to a love story with lots of obstacles, jealous ex's, sad parts and funny situations.
it was an interesting rollercoaster of feelings that ended pretty well and I liked that it was pretty erotic funny wise.
This is a great series. I really like the stories Ms. Lace comes up with. I recommend this series.
The narrator did a very good job of bring life to the story and characters.

I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I was given this audiobook free from the author for an unbiased review. I loved this, the 6th TerraMate book. Each book is so very unique for a mail-order bride series. The story with Annalee and Jesse rocks. The individual characters are developed well by the the author and their individual stories are very real. Lisa brings the reader (or in this case the listener) in and doesn't let go. Couldn't put the book down. The suspense is thrilling, although I was yelling at Annalee throughout the book, knowing what was she was going to do. But, again, that is what builds the suspense. There were parts that we not, at all, predictable. Keep 'em coming Lisa. Your narrators do a great job as well. Looking forward to the next one.
Received free for honest review. This story had some surprises I wasn't expecting. Annalee from earth gets married to Jesse on a planet where electronics are banned. Annalee smuggles her phone and she is caught later and Jesse must save her from execution. Lots of action and romance and the narrators did a good job.
Tell us about yourself!
Though I have throughly enjoyed the previous Terramates books, I believe this is the best so far. I enjoy the writing style of Lisa Lace and the sci-fi yet realistic worlds and relationships she shares.
I was gifted with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and truthful review.
Say something about yourself!

Great action, lots of spice, and mystery!
SyFy fans should really have fun with one.
Great new story to this series. Just keeps getting better. The two narrators do a great job. Can't imagine going from a world of technology to one with none what a culture shock. Love the story between the two main characters. Story moves along well and kept my interest. I recommend this book. Hope you enjoy!
