Publisher's Summary

When a potential threat against her life forces Eva Daily to seek shelter on another world, she has only one option available to her. She must offer herself to the Interstellar Bride Program. After a deeply humiliating assessment of her suitability, Eva will be assigned a mate and transported to his world to become his bride.

Upon arriving on the desert planet Trion, Eva soon learns that things are quite different than she is used to on Earth. Her assigned mate, the powerful, handsome High Councilor Tark, makes it clear that she will be expected to submit to him completely, and she quickly discovers that disobedience will earn her a painful, embarrassing spanking on her bare bottom.

An intimate examination from her new mate leaves Eva blushing crimson, but, to her surprise, Tark's mastery of her body arouses her beyond anything she could have ever imagined. Soon enough she finds herself naked, bound, and unable to resist the urge to beg for more as his skillful lovemaking brings her to one shattering climax after another.

It doesn't take long, however, for Eva to realize that there is much more to Tark than just a dominant brute who will not hesitate to take his misbehaving wife over his knee and redden her bare bottom thoroughly. But just as her passion for him begins to blossom into love, events back on Earth threaten to tear her away from him forever. Can Eva find a way to remain at Tark's side and in his bed, or will she be left with nothing but memories of the man who has claimed both her body and her heart?

    "Great story but the he narrator…"

    I really enjoyed the story. The relationship between the two main characters was interesting and rather moving for a short book.
    Unfortunately, the narrator was rather monotonous. Sometimes the male and female characters sounded the same. Only context of the conversation could tell them apart.

    "No Longer Earthbound!"

    I don't listen to erotica audios but I thought I would give this one a try and I wasn't disappointed. The story was written exceptionally well. I love the Interstellar Bride program. I thought it was a great idea the author came up with up. I actually wondered what it would be like to go to Trion myself.

    Grace kept me immersed from start to finish. I loved the story. The story has great characters, plot and the sex scenes are HOT! If you love erotica then this is a must read. If you like sci-fi it's a must read.

    Narrator Kylie Stewart did an okay job. Honestly and lets be honest she actually did a much better job with this audio than others she's done. I would like to make a few suggestions to the narrator though so here goes...

    Kylie you need to put more emotion and heart in your telling of any story you do. All narrators, well good ones anyway change their accents and you do not. I mean your male voices sound dull and still feminine but shouldn't . You should also work on languages because you may very well need to one day. I guess you can say I'm a hard critic when it comes to narrators but I hope it helps you to work on your performance when narrating. I do assist authors with narrators and I have done this since 2010 so I'm not trying to beat you up but to help you. Every author that I have referred a narrator to has been happy with asking my help and opinions.

    "Great story to listen to"

    This one is a "MUST READ" If at all possible, you really, really need to get the Audible version. The book was the best, but the narrator was good too. If you're looking for a hot, exciting and enjoyable Sci-Fi romance then you can't beat this series. Can't wait to listen to them all.

    "Ugh"
    Would you try another book from Grace Goodwin and/or BJ Pottsworth and Audrey Conway ?

    unlikely


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    should not be in the romance section of audible; should be in the erotica section

    "Ok"

    Way to short to even be considered a novel, I liked the characters but the whole story felt so rushed that you could not even get a feel for the characters or even the interstellar brides company. I felt like they met each other for one day fell in love she left and came back this whole thing was done in less then a day then it was just done not enough description of the planet the people or even where they were, the story was not worth the price she doesn't even see where he lives and it was over until I can get a full length novel with more story and description and plots I won't be buying another book from this author

    "Very steamy"

    Overall, this book was short but very steamy. the narrator did a good job. I wish they would have had two narrators. I personally really enjoyed it, but as publisher mentions, it's extremely sexual, probably boarder lines on erotica.

    "Excellent audiobook!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Assigned a Mate to be better than the print version?

    Since I have not read the print edition, I cannot compare. However having this narrator perform the story made this an excellent listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Assigned a Mate?

    The scene of the aftermath of the accident with the wounded and dying, and the second transport scene are tied for most memorable moments.


    Have you listened to any of Kylie Stewart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes-she's a wonderful narrator. She is one of my favorites and is part of the reason I buy books she performs.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Soul mates transcend Universes.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot wait to listen to more books in this series! I also hope more Goodwin books are transferred to audiobooks. Keep Kylie Stewart as the narrator for future Goodwin books.
