Stranded on the now failing space station, Kyra needs a miracle to survive. She has no idea that the 'foreign' astronauts who show up to rescue her are out of this world - literally.
Warrior Lord Tordin, Crown Prince of Olodia, knows he's outside of the mandates of the Intergalactic Alliance when he intercedes to rescue the survivors of the Earth space station. But there's something or someone pulling him in.

Can she find a way to realize her dreams of power and recognition now that she's been rescued by Tordin?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend the story because the story line is pretty good. I would not recommend the audio book. The narrator was not that great. I do not wish to put down the narrator because i know doing this has to be a challenge. But i feel if she would work on a better deliverance of the characters voices it would make the audio book better.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the humor and how accepting Kira was of her situation.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Audrey Lusk?
Maybe Amanda Ronconi the Half Moon Hollow books by Molly Harper. She brings out the wit in these books. I think she could do great job with this series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yeah. I could .
Any additional comments?
The story is pretty good but i enjoyed the story line. I did have a problem with listening due to the way the narrator presented the voices for the character but i am not going to take anything away from the story. I would like to listen to the next but if it is the same narrator i do not know if i can get through it.

The story itself wasn't all that bad. There's action, and a lot of witty dialogue, but I had a hard time getting past the narration on this story. I actually returned the book about halfway through, but one of my friends talked me into giving the story another shot because of the plot. The second time around....... I still could not finish this story. I picked up right where I left off, but only made it to the first sexual encounter. These scenes became embarrassing, and painful to listen to, I gave up.
Really, I wanted to like this story, as I am going through a Sci-Fi romance stage, and this book's description sounded good. If future stories are narrated differently or by another person, I would consider them, but would be very caution.
I normally do not leave reviews on stories I haven't completed, but as much time as I have invested in this story, I wanted to share my experience. Overall, I didn't hate the story, so I think it deserved at least three stars for a decent plot.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Listening to this book was a waste. I'm pretty sure the story is decent, but I actually had to stop the recording a few times to get over the "cliché gay" voices for the men and the "back country bitch" voices for the ladies. The narrator ruined this book for me.
Would you recommend Rescued by Tordin to your friends? Why or why not?
Recommend, no! But if someone showed interest I would point them to reading the book rather than the audio version!
Would you be willing to try another one of Audrey Lusk’s performances?
Her voice might be well suited for a performance where a man reads the counter parts and makes it sound somewhat more natural? I might give it a try, but I wouldn't pay for it until I'm convinced I'll finish listening to the story, rather than turn off the audio book half way through because I can't stand it anymore.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
It's not the genre I would go to the movies for, so probably not.

I got a real kick out of this story-a kind of Buckaroo Bonzai meets Space Alien Romance. It's written with the same intellectual slant, along with some action, some romance. To add interest, the heroine is a woman of color who is portrayed with enough individualism spiced with her background that you can really enjoy her. Lusk does a decent job with Kyra, not so much with male characters.

So the start of the book was good, I liked the leading lady she was cool and smart! But as the book went on she got less confident in patches then super woman in others... The ending is what got me it was to quick and all of a sudden she was connected with the goddess and had super powers
The voices drove me nuts she was super getto and he had a bad English accent!
I mean why do they always insist on over exaggerating colour woman's voices like that!
All in all I didn't hate the book but didn't love it, I wouldn't reread or recommend it

When read the missed reviews I wan't sure. But since the audio and kindle ebook were under $6.00 I knew it was a bargain. I really both characters and understood her insecurity while fining here way with drop dead gorgeous alien. The narrator did a good job! Looking forward to more and have purchased the ebook!

I loved the story. Energizing, stimulating, a funny adventure. Stunningly romantic , and sexy. Finding a love match from another world has me wondering about a awesome passion for the unknown. I enjoy how the author move the characters in dealing with the struggle of relationship, with the triumph of a frontier woman making her mark amongst the stars. The narrator was very stylish and fun to listen go. She carried the story nicely from start to finish
