Summary

Being kidnapped by aliens is only the start of Jade's problems. Thankfully, her rescuers, an alien race known as the Clecanians, are willing to protect her, but she has to stay on their planet for one year and respect the rules of their culture - including choosing a husband. Jade refuses at first but decides to play along until she can find a way back to Earth.

Theo, a scarred mercenary who prefers a life of solitude, is stunned when Jade selects him as her husband. After years of being passed over, he never imagined he would be chosen and neither did anyone else. Only one explanation makes sense...the curvy enticing female must be a spy, and Theo's determined to break her cover using any means necessary.

As Jade and Theo are forced to spend time together, their chemistry becomes undeniable. But neither can afford to bring love into the equation, especially since Jade seems determined to go home. After all, she can't possibly stay here, right?

Contains mature themes.

Love story hate narrator

I already had the Clecanian series as kindle books but love to listen while I'm sewing so was really looking forward to this, the narrator has the voices all wrong - Jade is a strong, intelligent woman and he's made her sound like a weak little girly. I'm not impressed overall with his ability as a narrator, all the women sound the same and there isn't much emotion or change in the tone of his voice. Honestly I could have done a better job for free!!

Why?

whoever thought it is ok to make a man with beautiful, deep voice, read woman parts was wrong, so wrong! I can't listen to this, it sound ridiculous and squeaky. I really wanted to listen to this book but not like that.

Cheeky story

I was extremely entertained all the way through and the narrator has a delicious voice. Sometimes men don't narrate women well but I didn't have a issue with this one. The story is fairly predictable most of the way, which didn't take away from the fun.

Sweet story with nice twists

The story was well thought out and well written. Not a genre I’ve ever explored before feeling the theme could easily become cheesy, however this book didn’t convey that at all. Sure some of the explanatory initial scenes felt a bit forced. The backstory was needed but it felt cramped in a way that could have been more seamless throughout and more nicely incorporated by hinting and revisiting when needed deeper explanation. Once it was done though the story flowed nicely. I wouldn’t mind the plot twists being less obvious but can also see that maybe they were just a means to an end and not the main focus like the romance,
Also an homage to male love interests that are manly AND soft, in contact with their emotions and man enough to admit to them and not only brutish and toxic male-like, well done there,


Narrator had a great deep voice (something I personally like a lot) and even though he read the female parts in character they didn’t get too over the top squeaky but stayed just right to portray the women through out the book,

Just as good the second time around

Really enjoyed Theo and Jade’s story. Despite some minor inconsistencies I still find the story gripping and addictive. I still want a Theo and I would love to visit that planet.
The spice was hot hot hot (specially the chasing). Just wish the Clecinians were less human like, but I understand it’s part of the story.
Amazing narration, but I wish there was a female narrator too.
Free on audible plus catalogue, but also totally worthy of my money (that is why I bought the 3 first books).
