    Book #1, Under Alien Law series, by Jaye Peaches

    The Vendu have dominated the galaxy for centuries. Their modus operandi? Conquer, crush, punish, and take. But when they came to Earth decades ago, the war was brief. The Vendu could've destroyed Earth, yet they allowed it to survive nearly intact. Why? They demanded Australia as their command base. The Vendu and humans now live in a tense, semi-peaceful, state. What happened on Earth was unprecedented and not entirely welcomed by either side. It's here our story begins. Freya Caspari's visiting the Vendu, ostensibly as a journalist. But her motives are far deeper. When she's caught photographing Vendu terraforming technology, she's arrested, tried for military espionage, sentenced, and whisked off to Tagra, a Vendu penal colony. It's a life sentence. Unfair? Yes, but Vendu law is clear. When she arrives on Tagra, her nightmare begins. First, the humiliating physical exam at the hands of Vendu scientists allegedly interested only in cataloging alien traits. Is that really their purpose? She learns Tagra's a planet with two suns, no night, unbearable living conditions, gangs who rule with violence, rape, even murder. There's no intervention from the Vendu guards or governor. How can she fit in, much less survive? Marco's the new governor of Tagra. He's there to fix a prison gone wrong. But he soon runs smack into Freya, and the attraction between them is off the charts. The Vendu don't understand or believe in love, and he certainly never expected anything like this. But neither Marco nor Freya can deny what's between them. Marco's strong, disciplined, expects absolute obedience from all surrounding him. And he's got major problems to fix. But how? Past actions have all failed. As Freya struggles to survive, a violent incident threatens her, starting a chain of events that will change her life in ways she could never have imagined. Marco's uncompromising, unyielding ways rile Freya to extremes. When the volatility of the entire penal colony begins to take its toll, subterfuge and hidden agendas come to light. Freya's very existence is threatened. But it's not just Freya who's affected. Marco's fighting his own battles too. Can Marco save Freya? Can he even save himself? And what of the Vendu empire? There are forces at play and secrets of which no one is aware. It will take split-second timing, extreme planning, and hard-won trust to pull off what needs to be done. Can Freya and Marco do it? Do these two have a future? Or is all of Tagra, maybe the entire Vendu empire, doomed? Can anyone survive the forces arrayed against them all? I love Jaye Peaches! Her books are exquisitely, beautifully written. Her concept of a penal colony in space is intriguing. The coexistence of not just one or two, but multiple, species in one location was fascinating. The story is original, inventive, and incredibly HOT! But Ms. Peaches also shows an innate understanding of human nature. I loved the ingenuity and creativity in creating Tagra, the Vendu people, and their empire. What really pulled me into this story was every aspect of the relationship between Freya and Marco. There's outright anger, disbelief, and non-acceptance by both. Marco's dominance is integral to the story. Freya's reactions to Marco are genuine and absolutely on point. But it's the bona fide connection between the two and the genuine emotions I felt with every interaction that captivated me and makes this story so very special. While not technically a BDSM novel, it does contain many BDSM elements, and it's a genre I love. Jaye Peaches has created an enchanting story! I give Chosen by the Governor my highest recommendation. Thank you, Ms. Peaches, for such a rare and exceptional reading experience. One final note. Please be an informed reader and consumer! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author. She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice. Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
