Publisher's Summary

The Prince

Prince Xalikian Kazharan has a dilemma on his hands. Now that the Kordolians have landed on Earth, he somehow has to convince an entire planet of Humans that his people mean them no harm. It's easier said than done, especially when one's race has a reputation for brutally conquering the Nine Galaxies. Perhaps this stubborn female journalist called Sera Aquinas, who thinks she can just walk up to his front door and ask for an interview, might be able to help him. But first, he has to gain her trust, and that's not so easy when her presence drives him to distraction.

The Journalist

Sera Aquinas doesn't trust the charming amber-eyed Prince when he says he doesn't want to take over her planet. As a hardened journalist, she's seen her share of duplicity and corruption. So when Xal tells her the Kordolians are looking for Human females, she thinks he's messing with her. Seriously? Who would believe that lame excuse?

She has to admit however, that Xal is one fine-looking alien, and a part of her is curious.

It's absolutely far-fetched, but what if he's telling the truth? What if Humans and Kordolians are compatible? And when it comes to Xal, why does her body keep betraying her when her head is telling her to get the hell out of there?

Contains mature themes.

Great sci-fi romance series!

This second audiobook in this series was very entertaining! The story of Zakikian and Serra was romantic and the action kept my attention throughout the story. We also see the General and Abby again, as the followers of the General pull away from the Empire. The narration was excellent!

Prince Xalikian and the journalist

This is the story of Prince Xalikian and journalist Sera Aquinas. Sera is the only reporter brave enough to confront the Kordolians head on to get an interview. This begins the relationship between the prince and Sera. The first half of the book is not as action oriented as the first book, but it moves forward nicely as the H/h get to know each other and the plot progresses to protect Earth. We also learn a lot more about Xalikian and the world of the Kordolians. Xal and Sera complement each other nicely, balancing one another's strengths and weaknesses. I really enjoyed this story and the romance between Xal and Sera. Yes, it was different from book 1, but Xal was a more quiet kind of hero with his own strengths. Memorable moment: I was particularly moved by the scene after Sera and Xal are rescued by Tarek after ejecting into space to escape the Kordolian bad guys. Although Jillian Macie was the only narrator for this book, she did an excellent job in conveying the emotions throughout the story.

1st book better, I anticipate good things coming.

Second book is good too, just not as much. The romance was way too fast, I think they knew each other a total of 3 hours before they were having sex and mated. The second half of the book is better, a bit more action with a hint of spy work. I am a bit tired of reporters being the heroine and how they are so worldly, it is a character that is used to often in romances. Luckily this one wasn’t too annoying in that aspect. I will keep going because I am interested in Gia and Arin’s books coming. There was no male narrator in this book, but Jillian Macie did a good job anyway.

SPEECHLESS, and Kinda disappointed 😴😴😴😴😴😴

What happened? The first story was full of action, thrills, and adventure. This book just fell short for me. The last half of the book picked up, and finally the ending was well Written, sadly this book isn't a keeper.

Good sci fi romance

I found the heroines character a bit annoying. However it could have been the performance that skewed my impression. But it's unrealistic to believe I could find everyone perfect and reasonable, let alone a fictional character. I mention it because the irritating girl affected my enjoyment of the story.

Shaping a new world

Good story. I enjoyed having only Jillian Macie as the narrator. As before with the first novel, not enough development or details. Just jugs along.

Intriguing Rea

Loved it i liked the overall story line. I liked getting a inside look into the Prince's background pain. His remorse for his contributions to the arrogance of the rulers of is world and what made him see things differently. The narrator made me feel the moments.

Exciting Story

I really like this story; lots of action, love, drama, and intrigue. I prefer a man and woman narrator for these books, but Jillian didn’t do to badly, was able to differentiate between characters. This series is off to a great start. Looking forward to the next book in series. Also happy that I don’t have to use credits to listen to this series!

Very enjoyable

This is another great book from Anna Carven. The only drawback is that there is only one reader this time, instead of the two they had for the first book. One female and one male reader makes listening to dual POV stories that bit better. That said, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Really Good

This is the story of Prince Xalikian Kazharan a Kordolian and Sera Aquinas a human journalist who embarks on an adventure with the Prince and to say sparks fly would be an understatement. The book is full of action adventure and out right lust and who could blame Sera for wanting a hot sexy silver alien with fangs and pointed ears. I want my own who wouldn't they are loyal to a fault and the sexual fulfilment of their mate is their number one priority, give me one now! I highly recommend this audio book and the series as a whole.
