Publisher's Summary

King Grim Vasteri is the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He is the King of Luda, blood brother to the Emperor, and his line will die with him. He will have no offspring for no female would join with him for once he was scarred he was considered "unfit". The Tornian Empire has been dying ever since the great infection caused the birth of females to become a rarity. Since then they have been searching the known universes for compatible females. The Emperor's discovery of a compatible female on a slave ship changed that. He'd ordered Grim to find his Empress's home world so more "unprotected" females could be obtained, knowing Grim would never be allowed to Join with one.
Lisa Miller is a widowed mother of two little girls, Carly and Miki. Her husband died just a year ago, after a long battle with cancer and she misses him immensely. Friends want her to start dating again but in her heart, she knows there isn't a man on the planet she could love like her Mark. Who could love their girls like their own. Therefore, she'll stay alone.
When Lisa is discovered "unprotected" at her husband's grave, she wakes on an alien ship heading for an alien world. Refusing to accept this she confronts the large males, demanding she be returned to her children. Seeing his chance to have a female, Grim agrees to accept and protect her offspring, if she agrees to Join with him and only him. Realizing this is the only way she can retrieve her children Lisa agrees, and the Tornian Empire changes forever.

SO DANG GOOD!!!

Wowza! This book was so dang good....

Ok... if you have ever read one of my reviews...you know I hate dual narration.... UNLESS it is done like this book... Female reads female parts and male reads male parts... This was so good... but this book had a little something extra that I am just not use too... SOUND EFFECTS!!!!

I must admit at first...I hate it... the birds chirping and the hum of the spaceship was driving me batting...but by chapter two...when someone knocked on the door and you hear the knock first then the narration...well I must admit, it really made this book stand out... I fell in love with it... It was amazing... so kudos for this brilliant version of narration and sound effects...

No on to the review... GRIM... I so want a GRIM... Although he was scarred from a battle he won against 8 other warriors, Grim was looked upon as "not worthy" to mate due to his scars... Oh, did I mention he is KING GRIM... but nope, he got scares so the snoody women of his planet didn't want him. So when Grim has to go find mate(able) Earth women because his brother the emperor's new wife accidentally told of her home planet...Grim is in luck! He forces Lisa to mate with him in order to pick up her girls which were left back on earth... She does, because there is no way she was leaving her girls...

OK.. this is when the story picks up, because WOMEN are special, as they are rare on Grim's planet... Now King Grim has got three!!! Man this book was so darn good... I can't wait for book 2 to come on Audible...

Narration was Amazing!! So enjoyable... Credit well spent...

This is a buy, sale or credit... Great book!

Well Worth the Credit!!

Color me impressed with this book. The author took their time with letting you fall in love with the characters. Instead of wham bam thank you ma'am romance, you get well developed characters that make you want to invest the time in getting to know.

This is the first dual narrator audio book that i have listen to that I have enjoyed. Usually you are jarred between two different ways the book is being read it feels like you have to constantly readjust to the narrators. This was done in a way that you hope is done every time you see that there will be two narrators. With one doing all the male voices and perspectives and one doing all he female voices and perspectives it comes out perfect. And with the man doing the general narration it is truly the best dual narrated books I have ever listened to..

The story is good with strong male and female characters that have just enough sense and empathy that you don't feet the need to scream that someone is stupid or smack them upside the head ( you know there are some characters you want to do that to sometimes). The plot is interesting and not predictable and will definitely keep you interested.

The only thing that was kind of distracting were the background noises. In some areas it was a little annoying and others made me think I was hearing things or something was wrong with my headphones.

i don't want to explain the story or the characters because I think the book is good enough for you to buy and explore for yourself and fall in love with the book with your own impressions, i will just say I loved the good guys and strongly disliked the bad. The author made everyone 3-dimensional in a way that even when the crazy comes you can kinda see why.

All I can really say is that the series should be interesting and i can't wait for the next book.
