Bonded to the Alien Lord

Warriors of the Lathar, #3

This was the best of the series so far and my personal favorite. It of course picks up where the previous book left off and Cat and Tarrick are generating as much heat as ever. The discovery of the humans being compatible, if not more, with the Lathar has opened more than one can of worms. Things are about to get messy.

The evolution of the relationship between Cat and Tarrick and the humans and Lathar has been a delight. I had a few qualms in the beginning as the Lathar as a race enslave other races, and that still holds true, but they are learning quick that humans are not that kind of conquest. The developing relationships among the other female crew with Latharian's is enticing and hopefully signals more books in the future. The story flowed well, the introduction of new characters and locations (namely the Lathar home world) as well as an impromptu "wedding" with it's pomp and circumstance and mixed acceptance had me glued to my reader. I love how quickly Tarrick fell for the fiery Cat, and that was before he knew about the depths their connection ran. So romantic!

Cat is a stellar heroine, as are all the other women from the conquered space station. But she also knows when to be a woman and let her man do his thing so he feels like a man. The story shows the women of earth as equals to the invaders, if not superior in some regards. The snappy repartee was delightful and amusing, regardless of who is having the conversation. A must read series.

Book Blurb for Bonded to the Alien Lord

Today is a good day to... get married?

Kidnapped by her very own alien hunk, Cat Moore is rapidly adapting to life as the chosen woman of bad-ass War Commander Tarrick K'Vass. It's not so bad. Her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off. They're married without so much as a bended knee in sight, then summoned to the Imperial Court so the Emperor can bless their union.

Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself. Like being a freaking alien prince.

But someone doesn't want humans and lathar getting it on, and they certainly don't like the possibility of little human-lathar babies. In fact, they'd be more than happy if Cat and the other women didn't survive past the wedding.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Try a bride whose alien wedding just got gatecrashed. Seems humans might be more like the Lathar than anyone thought...

**Please be aware that this is a romance short. Shorter fiction is a fun and quick read, not a full length novel.**
