Fynd is just so swoony and *sigh*
This is such a gorgeously sweet yet sexy read. Lucy was spunky and great fun, whilst Fynd, despite being such a damaged hero, was absolutely wonderful. No small wonder Lucy couldn’t resist him in this nicely written and very enjoyable sci-fi romance.
I would have liked to see more of them forming a connection, it was a little rushed for my taste. However that’s very much a personal preference and was entirely down to this being more of a novella length book, so events do happen at a fairly snappy pace. The writing, pacing and editing are all good and together with two wonderful characters and an interesting plot this is a very enjoyable read.
The alien warrior bought me.
But he doesn’t want a slave.
He wants me as his mate.
The brutal scars covering Fynd’s face are nothing compared to the wounds that have festered in his heart. After the bitter, public rejection by his intended mate a long time ago, he doubts any female will wish to become his…so he purchases a small human female named Lucy from a slave market. She’ll bear him a few children and he’ll provide for her in return, but he will not expect her to harbour any amount of affection for him.
How could she?
He’s a monster.
He wishes she weren’t so sweet and beautiful. He also wishes his heart didn’t fill with warmth in her presence. She’ll likely never return his affections, but he cannot let her go. Ever. A Vaxxlian warrior always mates for life.
Life hasn’t been easy for Lucy. She prays her next master will be kind, and she’s terrified when the new alien who buys her looks like an angry bull with glowing green eyes. After she attempts escape, she’s certain he’ll punish her severely. Her old master would have. But the alien warrior named Fynd kisses her instead—a shockingly tender kiss that makes her all tingly inside—and she starts to wonder if perhaps there’s more to the unsmiling alien warrior than meets the eye.
There’s a gentleness beneath his hardened exterior, but breaking his defences down won’t be easy. As far as alien warriors go, he’s as stubborn and proud as they come. Can they both find healing in one another’s arms, or will a new threat tear them apart forever?

3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.
2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.
1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
