Publisher's Summary

Running out of time...

Ruwen NaNaran knows he's a goner. The curse of his alien species has put a countdown on his life, and he'll be dead before the month is out. Unless he finds his denya, the only woman in the universe who can save him.

Down on her luck and lost in space...

Lis Jaynx just wants to go home. Kidnapped from Earth by unknown foes, she's dropped on a inhospitable planet with little food and no hope. She'll do anything to find a ship to take her back to Earth, but Polai is hostile to all alien life, and Lis finds herself on the run.

An unexpected chance...

From the moment he sees her, Ru knows Lis is his denya. But she's already wounded and distrustful of all aliens, even those who claim they want to help.

Will the explosive chemistry between them be enough to topple Lis's fears? Or will their bond break before it even forms, leaving Ru a dead alien walking and Lis all alone in the black of space.

BOOK REVIEW.....
Great story. Love the characters. Full of action, humor, sexiness and romance. I wish it had been much longer though. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!

The narrator did a good job bring the characters to life.

Entranced

Kept me in suspense as for what was going to happened. The storyteller made the story come alive.

Made Me Want To Pack My Bags

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. If they are looking for something different and that takes you to an imaginary world with a little kick of romance thrown in then they will love this one.

What other book might you compare Ruwen: Mated to the Alien to and why?

I don't like to compare books because it's not fair to either author. I will say that Mr. Michael was perfect for this book. He brings Ruwen to life and make him sound so sexy. I'm ready to pack my bags. Where do I wait for pick up?

Which character – as performed by Zachary Michael – was your favorite?

When you are critiquing a male narrator, I think it would be very rare where you would pick a female character as your favorite. He has the perfect voice for the character of Ruwen. Makes you want to meet this character in person.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think that moment was when Lis comes to realize that Ruwen may be different but that doesn't stop the heart from wanting what it wants.

Any additional comments?

I found this a great introduction into the work by Ms. Rudolf and Ms. Huntress. I can't wait to see what they have in store for me next. I look forward to listening to more of their work should it become available and in the meantime I'll just have to read their work instead. This was also a great way to come across a new narrator and I certainly can't wait to see what Mr. Michael is going to read to me next. This is a short listen so that was my one disappointment but that just means that I'll have to listen to it again.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Audio Copy of this book.

What's a girl to do...

What is a girl going to do when she's a victim of mistaken identity and abandoned? Survive until she finds Ruwan (Ru). This story had Lis thrown from alien to alien situations. Lis only had survival in mind but Ru had a whole lot more on his. I enjoyed that the story didn't just end with Lis and Ru flying off and being all mated. After they are stuck together, we still get a story that has action, fire fights, evading everyone and has a happy ending. Zachary Michael was a new narrator for me. He was easy to listen to, smoothly told the story and represented the character voices well.

Enjoyable

Lis is dumped on a planet to fend for herself and meets Ruwen who has taken a very dangerous job thinking he will be dead in a few months anyway from the Detyen curse. He is un-mated and 29 when he reaches his 30th birthday still alone he will die, I love the fated mated aspect of this book how a Detyen can only mate with one women in the universe. With women of their race very few after the destruction of their plant Ruwen has lost hope then he meets Lis and everything changes. I felt the narration was good and even though its a shorter audio book I definitely enjoyed listening to it. I revived an ARC for an honest review

Le sigh...

I don't even understand why I attempted to finish this book when I should have just dnf this book within the 1st hour. I am over this book. I don't know what happened with this book because I adore solace by the same authors. It occurred in the same world but yeah this one just seemed to drag on and on and I just don't understand.

Good Sci-fi romance!

I enjoyed this audiobook about a woman kidnapped from Earth and dumped on a hostile alien planet to fend for herself. While foraging for food in an empty building she meets an alien man ho is instantly struck by the knowledge she’s his fated mate. She’s not so sure and escapes him only to be saved by him from death. She agrees to leave the planet with him, after he finishes his mercenary mission to collect information. They spend time together and grow close and she finally realizes he is her fated mate, only to have him taken by some angry guys from the planet they left. Narration was well done.

Alien’s True Mate

Lis is kidnapped from Earth and dumped on a strange planet with a note saying, Sorry, wrong woman. Ruwen snuck on the planet to steal information while under contract. He sees Lis and knows she is his one and only destined mate who can save him from an early death programmed into his Detyan genetics.
Nothing super-original, right? But very nicely done: solid characters who are likable, and a reasonable timeline where they get to know each other. You really like that Ruwen doesn’t pressure Lis even though his life is on the line.
Michael does a decent job of narration.
