Allow me to introduce myself: I’m Grav N’gol. Half Braxian, half Vorn, and one hundred percent son-of-a-bitch. I’m a murderer, an ex-con…and a Protector.
Some people think a Protector is just a bodyguard for hire but it’s so much more than that—I’ll lay down my life for my ward if I have to without hesitation.

Which means I’m damn picky about who I chose to ward.

Enter Leah Roth, a bewitching little Earth female with silky hair down to her luscious ass and big brown eyes a male could easily drown in.

I know this gig is only temporary—I haven’t even given her my oath. I’m just supposed to make sure she’s okay and then report back.
So how did she end up on my ship, traveling with me on a top-secret mission that might affect the fate of the entire galaxy?
And why do I feel like I’m falling for her?

It doesn’t matter, even if I am. I have a secret in my past—a bloody one that would turn even the kindest and most forgiving heart against me. I have to put distance between the luscious little Earth female and myself, no matter how I long to possess her.

From my past and my true nature, Leah must be Protected at all costs.

4.5 stars. There is a ton of action and adventure along with some spicy moments. I liked Leah's transformation from broken to a strong woman. She's smart, sweet and so loving to everyone around her. Grav is a wonderful hero; loyal, gentle, caring and fiercely protective. The story has some wonderful humor and some seriously sweet ones. There was a bit too much push and pull between the H/h for my personal taste but they end up just as they should, so the conclusion left me satisfied. Adult read

This is a fun fast moving read. Enjoyed the storyline and the characters. Greg and Leah have great chemistry. Laughed out loud when Count Doloroso had his body image problems. Fell in love with Teeny. You'll not be disappointed if you read this one.

Ok, for all you who read the first story about Zoe and we're a little angry with her character, you will like this book much more. Leah does not do stupid things like Zoe. This character is much more likeable. And if you liked Grav from Book 1, he's back and very annoying. Sometimes I wanted to reach in the book and shake him -- but NOT by his horns -- no, no, no! He was just very stubborn about things. But I got my HEA, and that's really all that matters. Can't wait for Book 3. Keep writing, Ms. Anderson. You are almost, at least for me, at the caliber in sci-fi erotica of Laurann!!

I am loving the Alien Mate Index series! Book 2, Protected, is the story of Leah and Grav and is a fabulous as the first book. Grav is a protector and is as loyal to Leah as he is to his original ward Teeny. The evil Count Doloroso makes another appearance, and you will die laughing when you figure out who he has assimilated with this time. Well done, Evangeline! I cannot wait to see what Charlotte gets up to in the next installment. The Alien Mate Index series is a must read!!!

I think I laughed out loud more while reading this book than any other Sci fi romance. Brilliant move to have Count Doloroso steal a "particular" body. I've always thought he might be an alien too- or at least his hair might be a Tribble! Great book. Ms Anderson doesn't disappoint

I love this new series! The first book is “Abducted” which is a great story, now you have “Protected”, and I’m just in love with the possibilities! I also like the potential of several new and interesting characters added to the series, due to the many different types of aliens. This author knows how to write a Sci-Fi, I love the humor, suspense, and let’s not forget about hot steamy parts that makes you ache. I know this sounds funny but I do love the “body” of the bad guy in this one. If only wishes could come true, this would be a good one to have. (LOL) I have to admit my family and I went camping while I was reading this and I would get up super early so I could read my book and go to bed early too. I am looking forward to the next book “Descended”, Charlotte’s story; I know it will be just as great. This is a series worth picking up and reading. If you're still not sure, just try a sample first! I won this ARC, and giving it an honest review.

I was given an Advanced Review Copy, by the author, in return for a honest review. This second adventure, in the Alien Mate Index, picks up where the first book left off. Gravex N’gol, part Vorn part Braxian alien, has put his Protector skills to use by watching over one of Lady Zoe's good friends, Leah Roth. Leah's gentle soul has been beaten down, but when Grav appears, and saves her from her abusive husband, her escape into space is what she needs to learn how strong and valuable she truly is, especially to Grav. Will she accept her new life in space and new abilities, as a special Pure One? Can the pair realize they are truly fated, and worthy, of being together, or will evil forces tear them apart forever? What a great read!! I was so excited to dive into this book. Grav and Leah's story seemed so interesting and I really liked how it was told. We see new characters and creatures (Creepy Spiders!!) and many old faces too. The adventure was exciting, but I found I was more focused on the characters, their back stories, and their growing relationship in this novel, though this book was just as descriptive as the first. Leah's bruised spirit and Grav's troubled past really touched my heart. They made a great couple. One thing I found surprising was Leah's special ability; I was guessing Charlotte would have something like Leah's, but I'll just have to see what happens next. What a wonderful sci-fi romance. If you haven't jumped on board yet, this series is a wild ride that hasn't stopped, so hold on tight and enjoy! Can't wait to read Charlotte and Kristoff book! - Sarah

Sci-fi romance has become my new addiction and Evangeline Anderson's Alien Mate Index is fast becoming a favorite of mine! I blew through the first book in one night but as awesome as Sarden was, I have to admit that I totally fell in love with Grav and I could not wait to get my greedy paws on that sexy blue-grey skinned alien hunk! Grav was sent by Sarden and Zoe to deliver a message to Zoe's two best friends and to make sure that they were still safe on Earth, but when Grav sees Leah being beaten by her abusive jerkhole husband his protective instincts overwhelm him and he rushes to her rescue. Grav is your typical big bad alpha but for all his fierceness he is an absolute teddy bear when it comes to women. I just adored his gentleness with Leah and his young ward, Teeny. He fell hard for Leah but like the typical bonehead alpha male he felt he was not good enough for her. However when you hear about his background it's easy to understand his insecurities. My heart just broke for Grav but I did want to smack him a time or two over his refusal to bond with Leah. I loved how Leah's character blossomed. She started out timid and unsure from all the physical and mental abuse that she suffered during her marriage but by the end of the book she was confident and able to stand up for herself. I have to say that I admired the amount of Leah's inner strength when Grav sent her back to Earth. I don't think I would've been able to leave without at least giving him a swift kick for being so damn stubborn over the mating especially since he already admitted his feelings towards her. Fast paced action, great storyline, beyond smexy aliens and a good dose of humor (Dolorosa in the human body? *dies laughing*) Protected is another fabulous addition to the AMI series and I can't wait to see what happens next in Charlotte's book.
