Publisher's Summary

Collared and caged, his human slave awaits her training.

Zander, the alien warrior prince intent on recovering his planet, needs a mate. While he would never choose a human of his own accord, his physician's gene-matching program selected Lamira's DNA as the best possible match with his own. Now he must teach the beautiful slave to yield to his will, accept his discipline and learn to serve him as her one true master.

Lamira has hidden her claircognizance from the Ocretions, as aberrant traits in human slaves are punished by death. When she's bought by a Zandian prince for breeding and kept by his side at all times, she finds it increasingly harder to hide. His humiliating punishments and dominance awake a powerful lust in her, which he tracks with a monitoring device on her arousal rate. But when she begins to care for the huge, demanding alien, she must choose between preserving her own life and revealing her secret to save his.

Devour the first steamy stand-alone romance in USA Today best-selling author Renee Rose's Zandian Mates series.

Publisher's Notes: This book was originally included in the box set Human Surrender. It is a dark romance with elements of graphic sex, spanking, and BDSM. If such subject offend you, please do not buy this book!

Very erotic romance

This audiobook was well done, and unusual in that it is an erotic sci-if romance. If you are adverse to any aspects of BDSM you will probably not enjoy this book because it's basis is a relationship between a very dominant alien prince and a female human slave. She is chosen for him by an algorithm and brought to him. She is psychic and that is s punishment by death on the planet she was bought from, so she hides it. He is trying to procreate and that is why she was found and bought for him. Unfortunately, she shows this in several ways and he becomes distrustful when she won't reveal how she knows things. Overall, a good story with lots of descriptive sex. Narrator had an interesting voice that worked well.

Erotica BDSM Paranormal Romance

I usually enjoy paranormal romance but I think this should be listed under Sci/Fi Erotica. The story is very well written with a lot of details about their steamy encounters. The BDSM is a strong constant part in this story. If you dislike this type of interaction this book might not be for you. Their interactions are described in detail.

Narration was well done and it brought the story to life.

The story is about a very dominant alien prince and his human slave. This story is unique and their relationship develops but he complains constantly about his slaves lies and deceit. There are quite a bit of misunderstandings because they are from a different planets with different customs.

There are no cliffhangers and the story is well paced & does conclude on a positive note.

Zander.. The alien of my dreams

I purchased this audio because I enjoy Renée rose's writing very much. This was no exception. Xander the alien prince needs a mate to repopulate with and ends up with a biological match that is a human. She's not just any human though she's special. As the dynamic of the two different cultures unfolds and the two bond and get closer through not only the domestic discipline but a loving hand, it is clear that they are meant to be. The story was heartfelt and very passionate. Can't wait to listen to the next.

HARD TO RATE... SOME PARTS GREAT, SOME NOT SO MUCH

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.<br/><br/>Jiraiya Addams has a very deep, mesmerizing voice. It doesn't pull off sexy, IMO, but more of a theater reading. Nonetheless, I prefer his voice over a female for this book. <br/><br/>The story itself was engaging, although it was the normal "alien abduction" theme, and with over 6 hours of listening, it didn't feel clipped. Zander, the Prince of a race removed from their planet. Amid the few survivors, he was young enough to procreate but there were no females of his species left with that capability so he was DNA matched with Lamira, a human captive. Having no interest in humans, he was quite sterile in his approach to sex with her. Lamira was horrified at the turn of events in her life as her sister was a forced sex-slave and her father had lead a rebellion against their captors. Needless to say, they clashed, she dashed, he retrieved and more attention was paid to each other in all respects. Trust became their final hurdle as they navigated the meaning of love.<br/><br/>It was good. It gets a THUMBS UP from me.

Unconventional but steamy

First, the narration completely fit the book. this type of book is not my usual style of romance but it was so interesting I could stop listening. There were so many times I wanted to hate Zander for his harsh actions, but his road to fall in love made me really like his character. my only disappointment was the epilogue. I would have love to have listened to a stronger HEA - the birth of their baby. maybe there is some reference made next book. about her sister.

Lots of drama and hot sex

Any additional comments?

There's nothing like Alien to get you going. I don't know what it is about these kinds of books.It contains a perfect mixture of love, discipline, hot sex, kinkiness...and here is a bonus…it is a good story too!<br/>The main characters had totally different backgrounds and history which did give the reader a glimpse into their inner psyche as it came to the current events of this story.<br/>I liked both Lamira and Zander, and I really enjoyed Daneth (who provides touches of comic relief as he studies and tries to explain humans to Zander) and Seke as supporting characters as well.

A great read!

The story itself is amazing. The main characters are relatable and captivating. I couldn't put it down.

The suspense, dishonesty and domineering passion of Zander and Lamiras innocence made for fantastic chemistry.

Definitely will be reading the next 2 book in the series.

Erotic Sci Fi

Zander, is an alien from a distant planet. His species numbers are dwindling and he must find a mate to procreate with before going off to war. Imagine his surprise when he’s told his best match is a mere earthling. Out of luck and time Zander reluctantly agrees to breed the human girl Lamira.

Okay, if you’re easily offended and all things must be politically correct, skip this book! Warning out of the way, I enjoyed this mash up of paranormal and erotica. It’s a well written story by author Renee Rose. The fully voiced narration by Jiraiya Addams was decent as well, although he does tend to draw out words occasionally. The audio quality could have been better. There is white noise in the background and while it’s not distracting it is noticeable.

I will be adding the rest of the audiobooks in this series to my list. This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!

.Sizzleingly sensual

All the previous glowing 5 star reviews sum up this intense, riveting and addictive listen very well so all I can add is that it was such a joy to be able to go straight to book 2 after the ending of book 1. I've loved all of Renee's work . but surely this Duet has got to be her best and most impressive work to-date.
This Duet is deliciously dark, it's smoking h.h.h.hot, it's wickedly intense, it's got shocking twists, it's perfectly paced, it's temptingly twisted, it's got gripping suspense, it's filled with sensational secrets, it's got a sexy Alpha Male whose emotions run deep and Jiraiya Addams did a fantastic job bringing each pulse-pounding chapter to life. And book 2 adds danger, romance, passion, heartache, character growth and a sweet sweet pleasure..I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

Review in

This was not just a sexy book though it is that in spades. It does have a story and an interesting relationship between an alien and a human that really should not have worked. Somehow it did and once it clicked it became beautiful. It is very explicit so not for the faint hearted, but if you like something a bit more spicy you will love this. The narrator has a great voice and had my heart racing and my cheeks blushing at times. Big smiles on my face! 5 blushing stars from me!

A thought provoking deliemma

After listening to the Audible rendition of this book, I came to the conclusion that no matter where humans travel, love seems to follow.
However, this book starts with two beings not wanting a relatipnship, especially of the intimate kind. The alien prince is almost commanded to procreate with another species, to keep his species alive, although one couple is hard to envisage keeping a whole species from extinction. Anyways, the targeted female, sourced ny a computer compatibility program, is a human, enslaved, by another species of aliens.
After securing the female, the task is to learn how a human female reproduce, and their indicators for sexual arousal. Plus, off course, how to discipline and "house train" the young woman.
I found this book fascinating in the approach of how another species learn about the sexual proclivities of the human species.
Yes an enjoyable and somewhat different romance.
