About this ebook

Whitney Mason is the daughter of a Wall Street con man. When he is sent to prison and her family's name is destroyed, she is eager for a new life on a new world. Anywhere but Earth. Tested by the Interstellar Brides Program, she is matched to a strong Viken warrior. What she doesn't know is that her mate and the other two warriors waiting to claim her are on a secret and dangerous mission for the Coalition Fleet's Intelligence Core. From the moment she arrives on Viken, they are forced to lie to her... about everything... except their desire.

 

For Alarr, Oran and Teig, the arrival of a bride is an unexpected complication. The timing couldn't be worse, but IC command is thrilled. A bride is the perfect cover, giving the fighters access to every inch of the famous pleasure resort where they are working undercover. The males are eager to satisfy their new mate, but keeping her safe is their top priority, even if that means lying to her and using her pleasure to take down the enemy. But their sexy mate's past will come back to haunt them all, for even if they survive the mission, the truth will be revealed and their beautiful, curvy female can forgive anything—except lies.

Whitney needs a new start after the crimes her father and brother committed. Whitney is not welcome on Earth. The interstellar bride program seems like the best course of action. Whitney is matched to Viken. Matched to 3 mates: Alarr, Oran, and Tieg. Whitney decides to be all in and gives herself freely to her mates. Whitney ignores the sideline glances and odd conversations. Her bubble bursts when she discovers evidence that her mates aren't as honorable as they appear. Alarr, Oran, and Tieg are members of the I.C. They were in the middle of a mission when Whitney was sent to them. They'd like nothing more than to woo their new mate, but they've been ordered to complete the mission-mate or no mate. This is a sticky situation for all parties, but since the guys kept Whitney in the dark she assumes the worst based on the actions of her father. Communication is essential to all relationships. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

LUST—LOVE—DESIRE—NEED—TRUST As with the other Interstellar Bride books by Ms. Grace Goodwin, they read great as a continuing saga, but each book will read well as a stand-alone. In this story, Whitney Mason from Earth will volunteer for the bride's program and to leave Earth and all the troubles behind caused by her family. She will be matched as mate to Vikens, Alarr, Oran, and Teig. Vikens males mate as three to one female. The males will each be chosen from a different sector of Viken. “I’d never been pushed out of my comfort zone when it came to sex. But I knew that was going to change, and the thought both thrilled and terrified me. Started over. Remember that. No rules. No history. Just me. And them. My mates. All three of them.” The problem with the testing and sending females to their chosen mates is that the computer system does not take into account where the males are at the time. They will receive a quick warning that a mate is on the way. For Alarr, Oran, and Teig, they are IC and on an undercover mission at Trixon Pleasure Resort on Planet Viken. They are limited to what they can do and how they will claim their new mate, Whitney. In the tradition of the Viken, a true claiming will include three males, claiming their female. “I wanted three. All three. Dedicated to me. Touching me. Taking care of me. My family had been a mess my whole life. Liars. Con men. Thieves. Not to be trusted. I had always—always—had to take care of myself. It would be so amazing and wonderful to be able to trust someone else. Three someones. I could trust my new mates. Finally, I could trust someone. Fall in love. Give them everything. I’d already given up my world, my planet. Everything I knew. For Alarr and Teig and Oran. My mates.” The story has mystery, suspense, passion, secrets, and angst. Not everything is as it seems, and things don’t always work out as planned. While each of the three is attentive to her when they are with her, they are issues—and what happened to the claiming? Whitney has thirty days to accept the match or request a new one. Has the past with her family clouded her judgment with the present? Whitney doesn’t know who or what to believe—has she been naïve in trusting her chosen mates? Have they made a fatal error in keeping her in the dark about their mission? She is the one who must decide if she will accept them or allow Warden Egara to find her a new match. “We’d wronged Whitney in so many ways. Used her mind, her body—and her heart against her. We’d lied. Deceived. Used. Yes, we’d been following orders, but that did not lessen Whitney’s pain. We should have trusted her, as she had trusted us.” “Trust can only be given if someone possesses two traits, the courage to take a chance on knowing someone might hurt you, and the confidence to know you’re strong enough to survive if they do.” The story will bring Whitney, Alarr, Oran, and Teig together, and yet they must learn how to join their lives and responsibilities. Sometimes the job will not allow emotions to come into play—but just maybe there is a way to have a bit of give and take. The chemistry between Whitney and her chosen mates sizzles on the pages, and they just feel right together. When it comes down to it, each person or alien needs someone that is in their corner has their best interest at heart and has the love and passion for making life better. Not everyone needs to be judged based on what happened to you in the past—just look towards the future. “One dark playboy, one fair dominant, one red-haired alpha leader who kept us all connected. A gray uniform, a brown uniform, and a black one.”

I have never been disappointed in an Interstellar Brides book. Even though the Atlans are my favorites among the different alien species in this series and the Vikens my least favorites, every single book is at least a good read with most being great. Even though this book is set on Viken, these three warriors are part of the Coalition's I.C. and once their mission is through, they will return to their post with the Zeus Battlegroup (so, it has nothing to do with the politics on Viken and the troubling VSS). And because it has nothing to do with the war against the Hive, it is truly a standalone. This book seems shorter than previous books and Whitney gets the most characterization. Alaar, Oran, and Teig are given physical descriptions and a little bit of personality traits to help distinguish them from each other. There are some hot scenes as Whitney's mates try and keep her occupied and out of harm's way. It is a fairly quick read (it only took me about 2 hours) with a small twist towards the end. While this story has a happy ending for Whitney and her Vikens, my heart was hurting for Kayson and his friends (read the book - that's all I'll say) and I honestly felt that Kayson and crew were more intriguing and compassionate than other characters in the story (all fingers crossed that Kayson and his friends are the next to hit the Interstellar lottery). Overall, another good book, just not one of my favorites, as I prefer Hive action or Colony heartaches or just a big freakin' Atlan!
