Publisher's Summary

My alien overlord is huge, all-powerful, and determined to claim me.  

Every human girl growing up on New Terrhan knows one thing...that she will be taken by one or several Xalthurian males when she turns 21. The Xalthurians are rough, domineering, and huge all over, but this is the deal our leaders struck so that they would provide our human colony with desperately needed supplies.

If the baby born from our taking is a girl, we will be allowed to keep it. If the baby is a boy, it will be taken away, never to be seen again. That is the way it has always been on our small planet, and that is the way it will always be. 

I should accept my fate, but I can’t. When they come for my sister’s baby boy, I dare to defy the alien they call “Tel.” As it turns out, “Tel” means prince. But rather than killing me for my insolence, the future overlord vows to return to the planet. When I am 21.

He’s huge, all-powerful, and determined to claim me.

Can I stop him? 

And how will I answer when the question becomes, do I want to?

A surprise find

This was much better than I expected. So many of the books on amazon are poorly edited and badly written. This had all the elements of a romance and a fun sci-fi romp. The heroine was likable, not stupid and bullheaded in the guise of being a strong woman. She actually was strong, intelligent, and determined. The male lead was also interesting and not just a brainless walking slab of muscle. It was also wonderful to have a romance without the typical “slender blonde” heroine. Slender blondes are great, but after the fifty millionth one, let’s mix it up sometimes.

So awesome!!

This was written so well and the narrator was wonderful. I cried and laughed had huge moments of anxiety as the story unfolded. There were a few times I could not help but say things out loud in reaction to the story. It has all the feels and was so wonderful I hated to see it end. I really hope there is more to come and it makes its way to audible. I will absolutely buy the next book in the series when it comes out to audible. So well done I can’t say enough.

STEAMY HOT then--> OMG THE PLOT!- AMAZING!!!

Was so impressed with this hidden gem of a book. In the beginning the book was smokin' hot, but then right when I began to wonder if this book was going to be all steam and no story/plot, the stable scene came up, and the plot thickened :-). Still, even though some of the plot was predictable, the storyline still managed to surprise me in a lot of ways. I love romance books that contain romantic tension with arguments between couples that are realistic, well written, deep, and engaging. Then watch the couple change after said arguments... It was wonderful to see the couple overcome their alien differences, learn to trust one another, and then fall in love.

As an African American who loves paranormal romances, I was proud to see an author make an African American/ Black woman the heroine. Sometimes with other books the description of the heroine makes things ambiguous or "up to interpretation" in regards to the ethnicity of primary characters. This is often disappointing and discouraging for me as an African American reader when I read character descriptions that are ethnically ambiguous because I'm left wondering why the writer didn't just take the leap or come out and say it. I'm glad this author didn't hold back and left no illusions of the heroine's ethnicity via the descriptions of her afro and dark skin. It even seemed to me that the author had a lot of fun with the cultural references; especially when they made that "neck rolling" comment- lol. I hope to see more authors venture out with characters of different ethnicities in the future. As previous reviewers have stated, it was a refreshing change from the normal tall leggy blonde heroines we generally read about in romances and or paranormal romances.

I can't recommend this book enough. It was so, so good! I will definitely be re-reading it along with the other books in the series. I like strong heroes and heroines, and this heroine was strong, smart, and determined; and the hero was too once he got over his alien/ HE MAN/ caveman ways. It was also cool to see how outsiders might view the human race. The description painted in "the reports" written about human characteristics were alarmingly accurate. I was glad the author was real, brutally honest, and didn't pull punches in that regard. I loved how this book was refreshingly different from the norm.

The narrator was also excellent, so there is definitely no reason you should hold back on getting this book. Thank me later :-)!

REPRESENTATION FINALLY!!!

She was smart, kind, brave and BLACK. I am an avid romance novel reader/ listener and one of my favorite genres is scifi. It made my whole reading experience to see myself in the novel. This book was good. Looking forward to the next installment.

Hot Damn! This was a good read

I was captured right away. It was a mixture of heart thruming excitment, bright details, and of course the alpha male chase.....that gloroius chase that SOME of us romace book readers LIVE for! All the components were here for me. I litterally found myself swiping away an embarrasing tear when i knew this book was coming to an end. YES, an actual tear. Let me be clear, if you have never read or are not open to Sci-fi romace , PNR , off-world, and Fantasy then you may shy away from this amazing book. For more than a year I have I have been engulfed in genres like this. So to my surprise the H described ethinicity was likely to be closer to mine and (in my OWN expericence )that is a rarety in this type of genere. Not that any of that truly matters because the book showed clear undertoners of breaking barries such as race and disability. Which I interally praised this book for alone. EVERYONE should give this book a read. The Heroine was relateable strong and passionate. You might find yourself imagining you're right beside her in the midst of her adventures! She often finds herself digging for courage in challenging times, which i think we can all relate to. The H is also authentic when sharing her feelings. It almsot feels like "breaking the fourth wall" which is a term used by actors to describe how they interact and share thoughts with an audience they previosuly pretend are not there. In short... she's Funny as ever.

Why Can No One Get This Right????

I don't understand. I can suspend belief enough for a woman to fall for her captor. The story has to follow a natural logical progression. For example, no one gets from serious pain to complete arousal from 3 hard hits on the behind. Mind you, there's no soft rubbing in between, no soft kisses or anything. IT'S UNREALISTIC. Only a woman with mental health issues will scream out "keep going" or "that feels good" while being raped for the first time. I don't care how good it feels. Then, when she had the chance to ask for anything in exchange for her body, SHE DOESN'T ASK FOR THE FORCEFUL RAPE OF THE BREEDING GIRLS TO BE STOPPED. WHAT THE F*CK??!?? Then, she's a virgin and his manhood is humongous but it doesn't hurt the first time. ????!!!??? FACEPALM, alot.

This on is so hot, I can't wait for the second one

I love this story, and that blue alien is hot as all haze man. Clementine Dove is a ridiculously good narrator man. The men sound like real, different men and the woman sound like real different woman!!! She did this entire program by herself and I swear it was at least 2 people narrating. No wonder she did most of Theodore Taylor's novels.

Intergalactic lovin'

I really enjoyed this audiobook, as well as the kindle version. Love the narrator! I think I'd buy anything just based off seeing her name. There's good world building as this is the first book in a series. The story takes you through some things and you'll experience different emotions while enjoying it. I like how headstrong the heroine is and appreciate how she stays true to herself. Love makes people change, but she remains dedicated to improving the lives of her people. I really liked the cultural barriers between the two lovers. It was good to be reminded that he is an actual alien that knows nothing about humans. But he becomes open to learning and growing...after some trials. Nice love story and world building. Again, great narrator. You won't regret getting this one.

Good book.

I was delighted to find that the characters don’t all of a sudden change there was a actual process of them changing. I loved the story and just wish other book was out already lol. X
