Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she'd grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead. Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman's pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of. She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince. Sign up for my mailing list at gracegoodwin.com

When she's not writing, Vanessa savors the insanity of raising two boys, is figuring out how many meals she can make with a pressure cooker, and teaches a pretty mean karate class. She considers herself to be remarkably normal, exceedingly introverted and fairly vanilla, which does not explain her steamy stories and her fascination with cowboys, preferably more than one at a time.

The Alien's Mate: Cowgirls and Aliensby Vanessa Vale
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Cassie Anderson has been an orphan since the age of four. Left on her own, she grew up a hard-working, pragmatic woman of the Montana Territory, her steady employment at the Selby boarding house the only life she knows. When strange, sensual dreams drive her from her bed at night, her body heavy with desire and the scar on her palm burning, Cassie isn't sure what to think. When the handsome stranger tempting her each night with stolen kisses and irresistible caresses suddenly appears in the flesh, she believes she's truly lost her mind.
Maddox of Everis was born a Hunter. Second son to a powerful ruling family, he volunteers for the dangerous mission to a far away, primitive planet called Earth. His mission? To track down an evil foe responsible for his twin sister's death. He's come ready for the hunt, prepared to kill, if necessary, but he is not prepared for the mating mark on his hand to burn with sexual fire. Shocked but desperate to find his mate, Maddox will do whatever it takes to protect her from his enemy. He expects to find a mate eager to welcome him into her bed and her heart. But Cassie is an Earth woman, an orphan who has no idea who or what she is... not a simple cowgirl, but a descendant of ancient warriors who once colonized Earth.
Cassie is a powerful shock to his system, a woman he will do anything to possess. But when he tells her the truth, that he's an alien bounty hunter and she's his marked mate, she refuses to believe him. That is, until the dangerous madman he's traveled across the galaxy to hunt finds her as well. Suddenly it's not just Maddox's skillful kiss forcing Cassie to rethink everything she thought she knew, but an evil alien bent on possessing her for himself. She'll have to trust Maddox with both her life and her heart if they're going to survive.

I WILL FIND YOU The Wild West meets dominant alien in this exciting new series. From the planet Everis, comes a group of Hunters to capture a group of criminals, escaped from their prison and are now on earth wreaking havoc. Maddox has more at stake than just capturing Neron; he has a score to settle since Neron killed his sister, Maddie. But what happens when his mark starts pulsing and he dreams of his marked mate? Is she here in the Montana Territory? Cassie was orphaned at four, taken in by the Anderson family as an adopted daughter, but never shown love, and then at eighteen married to their son, Charles. It was not a marriage of love but convenience. She is twenty-one and widowed, still living with her adopted father/father-in-law, helping him at his boarding house. The plot has Maddox and Cassie sharing intimate dreams several nights in a row, getting more detailed with each dream. Maddox realizes she is his marked mate, and he must find and claim her. Cassie has grown up assuming the mark on her is a birthmark, but now it is itching and burning, and these dreams she is having, what is happening to her. Maddox knows that he must find her, get her to his ship to protect her, and claim her as his own. How do you convince someone in 1885 earth that you are from an advanced planet and that they are your marked mate? The story is full of adventure, passion, danger, and new beginnings. “Home wasn’t a place or even a planet. It was a person. For me, it was Maddox. Wherever he was, I wanted to be.” This is a new series and I look forward to the next book. Disclosure: I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 Stars I was very curious about this book. Cowgirls vs Aliens sounded a little odd to me but I have to say that…it works! These authors have written a very smooth story line. The characters are well developed and everything fits. There are NO holes in this story! Cassie's and Maddox's story is a sexy, almost sweet, instant romance. It deals with aliens, who look human, and their predestined, almost impossible to find, mates. I loved it! This is my first book by Vanessa Vale and Grace Goodwin and I can't wait to read more.
