Summary

Give up my life as a cop to rule over aliens? No way. 

My life changed forever when my name was announced as mate to the Arcav King. Within just a few seconds, I was no longer a cop. Now, I'm expected to hand myself in and travel back to Arcavia with an alien I've never met.

I don't think so. 

Instead, I'm working with the resistance, fleeing with the help of other humans and fighting for my autonomy.

If there's one thing I know, it's this: I'll never give up my freedom for a seven-foot, horned alien. Even if his heated looks make my toes curl...and his low voice gives me goosebumps. 

The Arcav King says his sanity is on the line. And he can't understand how I can overlook the pleasure that awaits in my arms. Too bad, buddy. That doesn't justify stealing my freedom forever.

Unfortunately, another species of aliens have become interested in Earth and its human inhabitants. Now, the Arcav may be the only ones who can keep my planet in one piece.

Can I stay on the run forever? Or will Varian convince me to take my place...at his side?

The Arcav King's Mate is a full-length novel with zero instalove and no cliffhanger. Harlow is independent, feisty, and fighting for ownership of her life.

Author's note: This was previously published as two books: The Arcav King's Mate and the Arcav King's Obsession. Both books have now been combined into this edition.

If you like hot aliens, kick-ass heroines, and steamy romance, you'll love The Arcav King's Mate, the first book in Hope Hart's sci-fi romance series.

Highly recommend

Initially, I was skeptical that the audiobook would be good however I decided to give it a chance. Thank god I did! This audiobook invested and intrigued the reader making it feel as though you were sat along for the ride, with strong character development. Allowing the main character to be a strong independent woman who did not instantly jump into the arms of an alian and make for a boring book, but instead, I got to enjoy the thrill of the chase ensuring I was on the edge of my seat. The romantic scenes which appear later in the book were hot and heavy. This audiobook is fulfilling and kept me entertained throughout the 12hr and 30m. I will look forwards to listening to more of Hope heart's books and hope others give this amazing book a chance.

Hitting is not OK

This was a real good story up until our heroine had to be punished by the male with a spanking. Spanking is OK if it’s sex play and it’s part of a mutual agreement. But spanking because the woman has to be punished, taught a lesson, or forced to comply with the male’s wishes is just simply being hit. And for an author to include it as part of a romance is simply telling the female readers that it’s OK for her man to hit her against her wishes as long as it’s in the right place. According to this writer, it’s OK for the woman to be hit simply because she’s not being hit in the gut. The minute the man hits the woman is the minute I stop reading.

Great reading

I’ve read this book before a couple of years ago. But I forgot have wonderful it was! I was angry when Harlow was angry. I was heartbroken for her when Varian left her. And everything in between was fantastic. I’m going to find the others now and listen to them again!

This Sci Fi romance was written so much better than I expected. There was a real plot, interesting characters, some mystery, character growth and a bit of angst. I was expecting the usual cookie cutter SF romance but, I got so much more! I can’t wait for book two to come out!

Great story

Fantastic narration and a great plot with twists and turns. Nice to have a strong female protagonist and a story with both humour and action. Definitely worth the credit I bought and I will be waiting for the next one. Hope it will be soon!

Loved the story

I really enjoyed the story line. I wanted to listen to it in one sitting, if only I had the time. Harlow is selfish most of the book, but she redeemed herself. I think Hope Hart did a great interpretation if Harlow. She was realistic. Ppl can be unreasonable when suffering with depression, guilt and mourning. Ppl can mourn for what could of been. I think she did a great job. Love the book

Well Written Storyline......!

Excellent imagination with action packed heat in all areas! Characters struggle with so much - but leaves so much more. Intense moments with the wait of what comes next! I wish the rest of this series was available on Audible!

His Mate

I loved the book and the characters. I was glad that MS Hart embellished the characters. It was a good book to read. Thank you.

Sound Quality could use work

Great story! The narrator did a good job; the sound quality was a bit off at times - at various points throughout the listen it seemed as if different bits were pieced in without the same quality. other than that it was a great "read".

2 melting hearts=one

I really enjoyed this. Going from her hating to loving him so completely. It was very enjoyable and interesting. I hope the next book goes on audible. I hope the entire series does!
It is worth the money/credit. Balance of romance and sci-fi was perfect. 😊
