    Loved this new sci fi series!!

    Starr Connor was working for the government trying to help bring down the Carmichael crime family when she's falsely accused of murder. After having her trial expedited she ended up on a ship full of other criminals headed to the planet Dakon to become the bride of an alien. When she gets to Dakon she's freezing, miserable and being the last picked in the lotto compounded by her intended mate's expression when he meets her, she's ready to be done with this place and go back to Terran. But quickly after she gets to know her mate Torg, we'll just say that things don't always end up how you think they will. This was a awesome start to this new series. This was a fun, FAST read- hard to put down. I enjoyed the characters, the premise, and there was a good amount of action, adventure and hot steamy scenes. If you like sci-fi, you will enjoy this book! I would definitely read this book again. Can't wait for book 2 in the series!! Happy Reading!!

    I'm on a sci-fi high!

    Starr Conner, targeted by the powerful Carmichael family, is unjustly convicted of 2nd degree murder. Now she's on her way across the galaxy, one of 50 criminal women destined to become Dakon brides. When it's time for mates to be chosen, she realizes she's the only one in the group who is not tall, dark haired and dark eyed. And no one wants her. What a position to be in. She is on an inhospitable planet, unwanted, nowhere near the few friends she made on the trip! I think you'll find her story and her mate, Torg's story as fascinating as I do. The situations get pretty hilarious as Torg tries to use some of her idioms. Life here is not easy and there are those who don't want her around. I love how her relationship with Torg grows into something she wants to keep. This is a delightful sci-fi adventure filled with intrigue, dangers, betrayal and best of all, love! Don't miss it

    Great sci-fi romance read.

    Alien Mate is book one in the Alien Mate series by Cara Bristol. I’ve been in an Alien reading mood lately. I’ve been skimming through those freebies I’ve picked up over the years and giving new authors a try. Alien Mate is a mail order bride / trafficking. It's kinda both types. The women on the ship are being traded for an item one plant wants/needs. And, yes most of the women have agreed to go to Dakon a frozen arctic plant where women are needed, but also the other plant is getting ride of it's small time criminals. The planet we find ourself on is Dakon. It used to be a modern planet, but an asteroid destroyed it all, changed the weather, and only a few Dakonian people survived and now with each generation their are few and fewer females born, so they are in need of women. I liked the world building and learning about this planet and it's people. Starr Conner starts off being convicted of murder and then finds herself shiped off to this frozen planet. Their’s more going on with her conviction and being sent away then we know, but we soon learn the details. Torg is Chef of his village. He won the lottery to be third in line to pick a women, but due to his states he ended up being late and gets the only woman left. She’s not what he expected. Small and blonde, nothing like the Dakonian women. Alien Mate treats us to a little suspense, romance, and a Dakonian women who likes to cause trouble. Starr and Torg are opposites, but they soon learn to to like/love each other and come together. They do have cultural differences to work out and I liked seeing Starr take an interstate in learning to read their language. The sex scenes are tender and hot. One thing I didn’t like is that Starr continues to think about getting home, clearing her name and fighting her case, but she also continues to move the relationship forward. I felt she shouldn’t have done this if she wanted to still go home. All in all I had a wonderful time reading. It’s a quick read. I liked the world building and the romance. I’m curious enough to pick up the next book. Rated: 4 Stars
