Mated To The Vikens based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. This is the 8th book in the Interstellar Brides series by Grace Goodwin. The whole series is great and this book is one of my favorites.This is the second story that takes place on Viken, the first one revolved around the three men destined to become Kings of the planet and with their bride, Leah unite their world once again. Leah was also a bride from earth so the Vikens were aware of the compatibility of earth brides with their males. The three Kings have now requested that the warriors assigned to protect the royal family mate using the interstellar bride program. The bonded group, Rolf, Eric and Gunnar can not refuse. Each warrior has their own history and past traumas but together they are a formidable cohesive team. They agree to go through the matching process even if they don't totally believe they can open up again or that it can truly bring them a female they will love. I fell in love with all three males they all had their strengths and weaknesses, and of course role preferences when it comes to relationships. Of course the Viking like men are all hunky swoonworthy and as a bonded group can set any earth woman on fire. Sophia has had a difficult few years, her mom's terminal illness has her desperate to provide her with medicine for her pain. She gets her involved with criminals who help provide her with meds for her mom but use her as a front woman and leave her to take the rap when discovered. Her choice is 25 years in jail or become an interstellar bride and leave earth forever. The strange matching processs mates her to not one but a group of three men on Viken. Having gone through so much Sophia figures she can handle just about anything. She has become a brave and toughened women and is tested even further when her transportation to Viken sends her to the wrong local, placing her in eminent danger. There is evil and those that oppose the new regime are plotting against the new Kings, their Queen and child. Feeling she has gone from one nightmare to another the brave Sophia escapes. When her mates to be find out the deception and treason that has occurred they rush to rescue Sophia,and the adventure begins. Grace Goodwin is amazing at writing sizzling hot love/sex scenes and scenarios, this book as well gets 10 stars of hotness but there is much more to this story. The stories in these books pull the reader in from the very beginning, This Vikens storyline is much more than a human/alien mating, the characters and their backgrounds more detailed and developed, the Viken world is wonderfully expanded upon as well. I really enjoyed this book and was not able to put it down. It is a five star addition to the series that brings the reader an exciting mixture of romance, suspense, danger, intrigue, emotional trials and healing, action, and yes lots of steamy hot scenes that will leave readers breathless.
Another great Interstellar Bride story. I was really curious to find out how the author would match another Bride to warriors on Viken as the first one (Claimed by her Mates) was matched to identical triplets that had been separated at birth and raised in the 3 different sectors. The 3 triplet Kings (Tor, Lev, and Drogan) have asked warriors from different sectors to share an Interstellar Bride to better unify the planet. We get a bride that is actually committed her crimes (albeit under extenuating circumstances). Once again our three warriors are so totally different from one another and they all bring different traits to the relationship. Eric and Wolf (ok, his name is Rolf but I really like the princess's version of his name - it suits him) and enjoyable characters but Gunnar just had that something extra that really brought him to life. The intrigue with the VSS to keep Viken from uniting/staying united really opens up this planet for more interstellar brides. Even though my favorites are still the Atlans (Mated to the Beast and Tamed by the Beast) this was a thoroughly entertaining story and I recommend it even if you are not into sci-fi romances. I received an advance reader copy from the author and I voluntarily reviewed this book. I have purchased previous books in the series and will continue to support this author by purchasing her other books.
