How insane is it to marry an alien as a publicity stunt?

I'm Sunny Weathers. You probably recognize me from my reality show, Sunny Weathers' Excellent Adventures. I've had to perform a lot of crazy stunts in my career, but this one takes the cake! The producers are sending me to another planet to become an alien's mail-order bride. I'm not allowed to tell anybody it's a put-on, and as soon my contract is up, I'll be leaving planet Dakon. Unfortunately, I hadn't counted on my attraction to Mr. Tall, "Darq," and Handsome...

I'm Darq. The moment I laid eyes on the female with pretty mud-colored hair and a sunny smile, I knew she was mine. Competition for females is fierce, and I was determined to claim a mate from the latest shipment from Earth, so I broke the rules. If anyone finds out, my own brother will banish me to the icy wilderness, and I'll lose my mate. I will do anything to keep her...

Alien Attraction is a standalone read in the Alien Mate series. I

ONE’S DUE IS PAID BY ONE’S DEED—AN OLD PROVERB The story continues from the first one, Alien Mates, where Terra has sent female prisoners to Drakon as brides in exchange for illuvian ore. But in the first story, the women are criminals, in the second, they have signed up and agreed to the exchange. Well, let’s say, all but one, Sunny Weathers, hadn’t agreed, she is being forced into the deal under contract by her studio, Apogee Productions as part of her Sunny Weather’s Excellent Adventure, a reality show. Sunny Weather started doing the reality show after her sister, Stormy, has started. But Stormy no longer does the gig, only Sunny, and that is only because of her nephew, Devon, who needs expensive medical care. With a nice bonus, it will make life easier for Devon and Stormy, and it is only for one year, isn’t it? On Drakon, one-hundred woman is coming, so that means a drawing of one hundred chits with only so many going to each tribe. Darq just knows he will win a draw, but is disappointed. Has fate handed him his greatest wish? Draq will find a lost chit, and while he plays back and forth on what he should do, he isn’t willing to give up having a chance with a Terran female, especially when he sees the one. The plot will have two individuals, each with their own secrets, demons, and desires. For Sunny, it is spending a year on Drakon to give Devon a chance. For Darq, it means having a mate, a female to love and cherish. From the moment that Sunny and Draq make eye contact in the meeting hall, they are both taken with each other, talk about instant chemistry and attraction. “I promise to become worthy of you. I will become the mate you deserve.” –Draq “She shook her head slightly. I’m the one who needs to become worthy of you.” –Sunny “We’ll learn about each other, together. Except for one thing. The secret I couldn’t tell the world, I also couldn’t share with her. I hated we were starting our life together with a lie between us. “ Sunny’s producers were creative in how to make the reality show work by sending six camera robots, ones that looked like flying insects with red glowing eyes. When Sunny finally can talk to her sister, Stormy, she will learn that Devon is doing better and that Stormy wants to sign up and come to Drakon as a bride, bringing Devon with her. Maybe this is the answer for their futures. The story will include so many laughing out loud moments with issues with the annoying “insects” as they hover and swarm around Sunny to record her and Darq’s every move and interaction. While they are invasive, they do serve a greater good too. What will happen when true confessions come to light? How will Sunny accept Darq’s deception with the found chit? How will Darq react when he learns she is part of a reality program and will she want to stay as his mate? How will the Dakonian tribesmen handle the deception of Draq and will this mean that the man who lost the chit have the right to claim Sunny as his mate? I look forward to the next book and how the new lottery will pan out. “The Dakonian lottery was stupid, and yet, so romantic. Darq and I had found each other that way. We’d both had secrets and strikes against us, but for the moment our eyes had met, we’d had chemistry, that indefinable bond that caused two people to gravitate to one another. You could see it with these couples, their attraction sparking with the first hello.”

This is a wonderful series. Adventure, suspense, humor and hot! Book one (Star & Torq) was soo good that it was hard waiting for the next one. Loved Sunny and Darq's story, and now chomping at the bit for Stormy's story. They keep getting better and better!

Sunny is a reality star (think Kardashian level!). But her adventures are getting weirder, more dangerous and all done in the name of ratings. She is ready to throw in the towel when the producers tell her the new twist - she is going to marry an alien! She really needs the money to take care of her sick nephew but can she really get married, and to an alien at that? One who will have no idea that he is the star of the show, or that when her year is up, she intends to leave. Darq was not lucky enough to win a slot from the lottery for a mate. But luck was looking out for him and he ...acquires a chit which he intends to use. when he first glimpses Sunny he knows she is the one for him. But his innate sense of responsibility is eating at him for stealing someone else's shot at matehood. Between flying nano cameras, bloodcurdling producers and sick nephews poor Sunny has a lot on her plate. I loved the way these two gelled together, even when keeping secrets from each other. I cannot wait to see what happens with Stormy and her grumpy alien!

This is book 2 in the Alien Mate series. It's about Darq, who is the brother of Torg from the book 1, and Sunny Weathers. Darq has entered the lottery hoping for a mate from earth, especially after seeing how happy his brother is with his mate. Sunny has been sent to Dakon as part of a stunt for her reality show back on Earth. And she has no choice in the matter until her contract is up. What she never counted on was how she would feel about Darq and having to lie to him about why she was sent to the planet to begin with. And Darq has his own secrets that he is keeping, and if they are found out it could lead to major problems not only for himself but his brother. I loved this one! Right from the start you could understand why Sunny does what she does. Even though she really doesn't want to do this, she doesn't have a choice. And even though she is a "celebrity", you never get that stuck up vibe like you would expect from someone who has had to live in front of a camera. Darq was always sweet in the first book and this one is no different. He surprised me when he does what he does to make sure he got a mate but I couldn't really blame him. Right from the start you like these characters. They both made me laugh at the things they say and do. They both made me just genuinely like not only who they are but how they treat each other. They are perfect for each other. And the fact that Darq is so forgiving is a wonderful thing to see!! And the way he treats her family is beyond awesome! I can't wait to read Sunny's sisters story next!!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It did take me a bit to get into this one.  There are few topics that will immediately turn me off to a book.  One being anything to do with reality TV.  Yes, I am one of the few who doesn’t worship all things TV.   In Alien Attraction, Sunny is forced to be a mail-order bride for her TV show.  She doesn’t want to be there and doesn’t want to have any type of feeling for Draq since she plans on leaving in a year.  But the sparks fly the second they look eyes. Draq like all males on his planet is desperate for a bride.  He breaks the rules and gets his through dishonesty.  I liked Draq, but I didn’t like this aspect of him.  He did prove himself honorable in the end, but it was a rough start.   The story is full of humor, a bit of danger, a lot of romance and overall a really easy read to pass the time.  I like where the series is heading and look forward to continuing.

**Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Alien Attraction is the 2nd book in the Alien Mate series. This book can be read as a standalone. I found this book to be a fun, fast, enjoyable read. Sunny Weathers is on her own reality show. The producers keep coming up with new and crazy schemes to get her involved in for ratings, and this newest is the most crazy of them all. They want Sunny to marry an alien, she's not thrilled about it, but her nephew is really sick and the treatment is costly, and there isn't much she wouldn't do for her nephew Devon, including marrying an alien. Darq has been dreaming about a woman that is supposed to be coming in the next group of women fated to be his mate. But when the draft comes up and he doesn't get a chit like he's supposed to he's devastated, until he finds one on the ground. Decisions, decisions for him..... I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was a neat storyline, piggybacking off of the reality tv idea. I enjoyed the characters, was good chemistry between them. The only issue I had with the book, was I felt the ending was rushed. I think there needed to be a little more story between them- there seems to be a trend lately of the characters just get together and then the story ends. There is an epilogue, but it felt like important information was left out from the in-between. That's why I rated it a 4 instead of 5 stars. Overall, really enjoyed this book tremendously! Can't wait for the next book in the series. Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!
