Our attraction unleashes a perfect storm…

I’m Stormy Weathers. My love life on Earth is one natural disaster after the other. I’m attracted to bad boys, rebels, commitment-phobes. In a crowd of choirboys, I’ll manage to find the jerk. All I want is a man who’ll love me and my young son, so I’m going to an icy planet to become an alien’s mail order bride. This time will be different! The chemistry I feel with Romando is electric. It doesn’t matter what my sister or her mate or their tribe says, mutual attraction this strong can’t be wrong, so I’ll do anything to get him…

I’m Romando, an outcast in my own tribe. One rash, angry act turned me into a pariah and almost got me banished. But, what everyone resents the most is that I’m one of the lucky few who’ll be getting a mate. The instant Stormy Weathers blows into Dakon with the other Earth females, my horns tingle. She is meant for me, but I resist the instinct to claim her. You see, she’s related to my nemesis responsible for my outcast state. Honor and pride dictate that I reject her as a suitable mate. If only I could get her out of my mind…

 

This is the third book in the Alien Mates series by Cara Bristol. Alien Intention can be read as a stand-alone book, but I really enjoy the entire series, so I recommend to start with book one, Alien Mate.

This series takes place on the planet of Dakon. This planet was hit with by an asteroid that made Dakon a mostly frozen planet, with a short thaw season. The women were also hit by a virus on the asteroid that really hurt the number of females on the planet. Earth currently has more women than men. So Earth makes a deal with Dakon. Trade a valuable illuvian ore, that Earth is using for power, for women. The first group of women were convicts and forced to go. After that, it is on a volunteer basis.

So, in this story, we have Stormy and her son coming to Dakon. Stormy is the sister of Sunny, the heroine of Alien Attraction. Stormy was a reality star, just like her sister, but quit the show much sooner, because of her son. But, she is still somewhat famous and this causes strife between her and one of the other women that came to Dakon.

Romando was a large character in Alien Attraction. He was chosen to receive a mate, but lost his chit, which told him where he was to pick of the women who arrived. So, he proceeded to steal the mate of the man who used his chit. Now, he’s an outcast in his tribe. They feel that he disgraced the tribe. Things don’t get easier when he is forced to take woman who doesn’t like Stormy. This woman makes things really difficult for both him and Stormy.

The Alien Mate series continues to be a fun read. If you’re a fan of sci-fi romance or even paranormal romance, this is a series that I think you’ll enjoy. The characters are a lot of fun. The world is well developed. I don’t know if there will be more books in this series. I do know she’s working on a spinoff series, where the men come to Earth because they are tired to wait their turn. That could be interesting. I can’t wait.

I’m Melanie, and I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. I will read contemporary romance on occasion, but not often. I will occasionally throw in a biography, usually autobiographies of people that I find interesting. Listening to autobiographies that are narrated by the author have been great in my experience.

I started listening to audiobooks when a new book in a series was coming out and I wanted to get a refresher, but didn’t have time to read all the books (I think it was Anita Blake). I fell in love. I stayed with strictly re-reading books that I’d already read for a long time. I eventually tried an audiobook for something that I hadn’t read first and was hooked there too. Now, I listen to audio for both re-reads and first time. I have some series that I’ve given up reading and only listen. I try to get any many books/audiobooks from the library to help save on my budget. Books on CD and the newer digital downloads from the library really allow me to listen more. I then purchase my favorites (because who can wait in line for your favorite book??) and less mainstream books from Audible or some other online retailer.

  1. Thanks for the nice review. I’m glad you enjoyed the Alien Intention. Hope you enjoy the spinoff series, Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides. It’s even funnier than Alien Mate! (I do plan to write more Alien Mate books).

    I’m impressed by your blog traffic. You get a lot of comments!

  2. I read the first book in this series but haven’t gotten around to continuing it yet. Good to hear it continues to be a good series. This sounds like a good read with some issues the couple has to deal with. I heard of the spin-off series and have the first book of that one on my wishlist.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve read a sci-fi romance. I should try to check out this series. But why do so many sci-fi romance covers have to look so cheesy?! Thanks for the review.

      I found out from an earlier comment that the first book, Alien Mate, is/was a freebie. So check that out.

      Yes, sci-fi romance generally doesn’t have great covers. Maybe because so many are self-published and the authors don’t have the money/experience to get a great cover?? Just an idea.

      He was so good with her son. It shows that the system they have right now just isn’t that good. I wonder if there will be another book on this planet where we can see if they change the system. I still need to start the book back on Earth.
