Publisher's Summary

He's determined to conquer her heart....

Desperate to save her parents from debtors' prison, Esmay signs up as an alien mail-order bride. She'll travel to Mars to become a savage alien's mate, and in exchange for her sacrifice, all her family's debt will be forgiven. She prays she'll find some semblance of happiness on Mars and hopes her future husband treats her with kindness. But she's stunned to discover the muscle-bound blue alien she's been matched with is Prince Vaath, a fearsome warrior who once led a deadly battle against Earth. How can she willingly give herself to an alien who killed so many of her people?

Prince Vaath is aware many of his followers are hesitant to mate with humans, but after losing most of their females, it's necessary that they claim as many human females as possible in order to procreate and strengthen their numbers. He's shocked by the possessiveness he feels when he first looks upon golden-haired Esmay, and long-buried instincts soon rise to the surface as he claims his new princess time and time again. He knows she's afraid of him and believes him to be a savage, but he can't get enough of the little human who incites his desires, and he is determined to one day win her heart. But dark forces are gathering, and it will take all his power to keep Esmay safe from harm.

Excellent!

Yes the tropes in this book have been done before. Yes the storyline is very similar to others. But this is the story of a prince and human coming to terms with their feelings and pre-conceived judgement of the other's race. With big-horned aliens, betrayal, murder, sex, and love, it had all the stuff I crave in this genre.

Instant attraction was there, but love took it's time to show itself. The book was short, yet packed in what was needed. If it was longer, that's where many books fail due to too much inner turmoil, drama, or inner nonsensical ramblings of how they are not worthy. This book does not have that "filler".

Although some slang terms were too human to be said by aliens, that's my only complaint. A minor issue that does not change how I feel about the book.
Although I do wish that there was a male narrator, I have no complaints with Heather Costa. Narrators are a hit or miss as everyone has differing opinions on what they like. She had emotion, sense of urgency, fluency. I find her voice pleasing, even her male voice. Put it this way, you can tell who is speaking.
I loved this book and will be continuing the rest of the series.

Dorky

The storyline is much of the same as other books in this genre; which I truly don’t mind; it was the female character’s name and the narrator’s male voice that made me think I was in Mayberry in a episode of the Andy Griffin Show, voice was so dorky sounding for a strong, built, and powerful male alien. Don’t plan to follow this if it is a series unless they add a male narrator or a narrator that does a good job with male and female voices.
