Publisher's Summary

Earth is losing the war with the Anquesh. The world government needs TerraMates to find a bride for an alien warrior and finalize a peace treaty with the dangerous race.

Jennifer Carden never thought Kai would select her as his mate. He's tall, dark, devilishly handsome, and different from all the males she's ever known. Once Kai decides Jenn is his sindare, she's taken to an alien planet.

On Anquera, she discovers there will be competition to win her marriage rights. And things are different in space. What does it mean when the word for wedding ceremony translates to "trial by combat"?

Jenn's going to find out.

This story takes place in the TerraMates universe, but can be listened to as a standalone novel.

    "Craving ~ Awesome Alien Romance!"


    Another "out of this world" story in the TerraMates series! And one of my favorites!

    Jenn is down on her luck, her husband, well the husband who was actually married to someone else, left her broke. Now, she's desperate, and is in need of quick cash so she decides to give TerraMates a try.

    Kai's race have been fighting with earth and humans for a long time, and in attempt to bring peace, comes to earth to find a wife. Hundreds of women are applying for the position but none of the women are what he is looking for. While the selection process is going on he needs time alone, and decides to take a walk and stumbles across Jenn. From the moment he sees her, he knows she's his sindari or what humans call soul mates.

    After some issues, Jenn finds herself transported to his planet, and eventually falls in love with him. However, his planet has strange marriage customs, and she must participate in their honored Marriage Battle.

    With unknown enemies, unexpected attacks, lots of plot twist, and challenges, this was an excellent addition to the series.Each story is a great stand alone, has a unique plot, and a HEA.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Action Packed"

    this book has it all. Action and romance.
    This story is about Jenn who signs up for Terra Mates for the 2000 credits if not picked. She did not figure she would be picked to be a bride and did not want to be. She had already come out of bad relationship. She just needed some money. Earth and Anquera had been at war a long time and it was decided that Kai the stepson to the emperor would got earth and choose from one of the women from Terra Mates exchange for a treaty between the two planets but also the the emperor was also trying to get an alliance with the Similcue to help with the war against Earth. Jenn hides in a closet because she does not want to be picked and Kai getting tired of all the questions etc with the Terra mates hides in the same closed. After talking to each he realizes she is is Sindare(mate). They both sneak away and get ambushed by assassins he takes her aboard his ship and they leave for Anquera. Where the action starts. The Similicue attack Anquera and they also have the intention to attach Earth. So Kai and Jenn and is soldiers have to work with Soldiers on Earth ships to try and defeat the Similicue. Can they do????? This was one of my favorites in this series. The narration was great and the story line was well developed and fantastic. I received this book free for an honest review.

    Story
    "Best One Yet"

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom. This is book 8 in the series but it too can be read as a standalone. It was just as different as the others. Jenn is the one chosen as Kai's mate and is the one who would help end the war between the Anquera and earth. The plot twists were incorporated so well that you had to keep listening in order to know what will happen next. The story is told from two points of view and really made the story. The character develpoment was very well done and the narrator was very good.

    Story
    "TerraMates Love Story with a different twist"

    This TerraMates story was a little different from the others. I like it. Jenn needs money and she signs up for an alien husband. The thing is, she is only there for the money. She doesn't want to have anything to do with men.

    She is assigned to flaunt herself in front of a male representative of another planet. When the time comes, she hides in a closet. Well in walks Kai the male hero. He is sent to Earth to marry a woman in order to form an alliance. Among all of the women thrown into his path, he just wants a break and hides in a closet which just happens to be the one Jenn is in. Kai Immediately recognizes Jenn to be his Sindare or Soul Mate - but much more.

    There is a lot of political and romance drama adventure in this story. I love the fact that the Brides must battle the men they marry. My favorite part is how Jenn uses her Tai chi and other yoga practices to beat the resident antagonist in the marriage battle (she won the battle and was able to reject the groom).

    This was a very good audio book. This audio book was provided by the author for an unbiased review.

    I think I just found another favorite among terramates stories for me, this one was so cool.
    loved the scifi theme and the need that kai put onto jen when he found her.
    i really liked jen she was so real and ground to earth, the complot parts were cool and jen kicking a** was wonderful.

    "Good story"

    Book review....................
    Good story. I liked the characters however I would have liked there to have been a little more depth to them. I'm not saying they were shallow I'm just saying they needed something more.

    Narrator review.......
    Good job.

    "One of my favorite TerraMates stories"

    This is a great addition to the TerraMates series. It was well written and interesting.

    Jenn has had a lot of bad luck in the beginning of this book. She married someone that was already married and before finding out about his dual life he took all her saved money and left her broke.

    Kai is a warrior from an alien race that has been in war with earth. He comes to earth to forge an alliance by choosing a women from earth to marry.

    There are some twists and turns. A lot of action in this book. It keeps you engaged and interested all the way to the end

    I'm always pleased with the dual POV & the HEA conclusions.

    The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.

    "So maybe this is my favorite TerraMates book....."
    Any additional comments?

    I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. Ok so this book was really good. I enjoyed the fact that Jenn could hold her own. Yes she had her moments of self doubt but that made it even better when she would dominate a situation. She could fight but didn't even realize it and she knew how to give a kick in the butt pep talk. I loved Jen she did the female population proud. Kai wasn't so bad, especially when he was in his war rage...things became real. Oh and just know that a woman did kick butt in this story, I mean junk talk and kick butt. I appreciate this book and how it really did make me want to shout "You Go Girl". The beginning did piss me off but hey the ending rocked my world. Thanks Lisa Lace for writing a great story and Thank you to Cassandra Miles for breathing life to words on the page!!

    "EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT"

    I received this audiobook for an honest review. This book was EXCELLENT. Did I say EXCELLENT? Lisa has done it again. She is such a wizard at telling stories. I can't believe she can come up with such unique stories. I would love to spend a couple of hours in her head looking at all the ideas she has. Already at Book 8 and none of them are the same. Each one is so very different. The narrator does an excellent job of distinguishing between each of the characters. You can see a bit of yourself in each of the main characters Lisa gives you. She has a talent for description. Description of the people, the places, and the characters, personality, thoughts, anger, suspicion of each character (I could go on forever). This book is very suspenseful and pretty scary. I definitely couldn't stop listening to this one. Thanks Lisa, as always you certainly entertain.
