Alien Mate 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 26 reviews.

Cara Bristol wrote an interesting sci-fi story. It is not a cliffhanger. I found the storyline fun and suspenseful. Star was a woman erroneously convicted of murder. She was drafted to go to an alien planet where she would live her life. The story of love, changes, and intrigue kept me spellbound for an afternoon. The sex is explicit but to be expected. I recommend this story!!!!!

I'm not sure why there is a 1 star review. This is well written, well edited and has a cute storyline. While not the absolute best I've ever read, it's good enough I'm buying the other books.

I enjoyed the story and would like to see more stories involving these characters. I liked that it had a story and not just crude sexual words over and over.

ROCKS-FOR-BRIDES Once again, Cara Bristol has spun an amazing Sci-fi tale. Two planets, each needing something, and working out an exchange program. One is trusting, and the other is devious in how they handle their part of the exchange. Earth or Terra needs the illuvian ore to power things on earth, and Dakon needs females to help populate their planet after an asteroid centuries ago wiped out so many of their people. Along with it came a virus that killed out females, leaving them with only a few, and even fewer children being born. The story will grab you from the beginning to the end and keeps you guessing as unexpected details emerge. On Earth, Starr Conner will be falsely accused of murder, tried, convicted and before she knows what is happening, placed aboard USS Australia to become a court-ordered-bride to an alien. She is on the first transport, along with forty-nine other women that were also incarcerated, except their crimes were more in line with cyber crimes, hacking, money laundering, etc., and they were given a choice to go. Dakon needs females to mate, and hopefully, they will produce female children to help repopulate the planet. What was once an advanced planet, is now in winter twelve months out of their fifteen months rotation. Their infrastructure has been wiped out, and now survival has returned to a more primitive time. A drawing was held for the first fifty women, and each winner was given a chit to determine the order of choice for female. A tribal leader of one clan, Torq, has won a mate in the first flight of females. The plot will have plenty of angst, uncertainty, deception, and new beginnings. As the fifty female prisoners travel to Dakon, three will become good friends, Tessa, Andrea, and Starr. There is some vague information about the aliens of Dakon, and even for the men of Dakon on Terra women. While preliminary testing show they are compatible, life on a new planet comes with anxiety. No different than mail-ordered brides of the eighteen hundred, these convicted women will be entering the unknown with their new alien mates. Torq is disappointed when he first sees Starr, and he worries about her small size, even thought on Terra One, she is considered a BBW. When Torq refers to Starr as skinny, her heart will melt at the compliment. The story will keep the pages turning as details unfold of the crime Starr has been accused of, and how on Dakon, all laws must be obeyed, or you will be banished into the wasteland and left on your own. What will happen when the Dakonians learn that their shipment of mates is all convicted criminals? And one among them for the crime of murder? The difference between species is minor and learning new things interesting, such as kissing. There is a great cast of characters, unique characteristics of Dakonian men, and a love story in the works. “I would give you everything I have. You’re my mate.” “Forever and always.”

Alien Mate is book one in the Alien Mate series by Cara Bristol. I’ve been in an Alien reading mood lately. I’ve been skimming through those freebies I’ve picked up over the years and giving new authors a try. Alien Mate is a mail order bride / trafficking. It's kinda both types. The women on the ship are being traded for an item one plant wants/needs. And, yes most of the women have agreed to go to Dakon a frozen arctic plant where women are needed, but also the other plant is getting ride of it's small time criminals. The planet we find ourself on is Dakon. It used to be a modern planet, but an asteroid destroyed it all, changed the weather, and only a few Dakonian people survived and now with each generation their are few and fewer females born, so they are in need of women. I liked the world building and learning about this planet and it's people. Starr Conner starts off being convicted of murder and then finds herself shiped off to this frozen planet. Their’s more going on with her conviction and being sent away then we know, but we soon learn the details. Torg is Chef of his village. He won the lottery to be third in line to pick a women, but due to his states he ended up being late and gets the only woman left. She’s not what he expected. Small and blonde, nothing like the Dakonian women. Alien Mate treats us to a little suspense, romance, and a Dakonian women who likes to cause trouble. Starr and Torg are opposites, but they soon learn to to like/love each other and come together. They do have cultural differences to work out and I liked seeing Starr take an interstate in learning to read their language. The sex scenes are tender and hot. One thing I didn’t like is that Starr continues to think about getting home, clearing her name and fighting her case, but she also continues to move the relationship forward. I felt she shouldn’t have done this if she wanted to still go home. All in all I had a wonderful time reading. It’s a quick read. I liked the world building and the romance. I’m curious enough to pick up the next book. Rated: 4 Stars

This was a great read for me. Good world building and the characters were easy to fall in love with. The story line was easy to read and smoothly went up and down (no jumps). I liked how the author started with Star on the ship and explained what happened to her and how she got into her precarious situation. It was also good that the author flowed easily with Star's new situation and incorporated her old situation as well. Good plot twist :)

Title: Alien Mate Author: Cara Bristol Publisher: Cara Bristol Published: 4-10-2017 Pages: 271 Genre: Sci Fi & Fantasy Sub-Genre: Paranormal Romance ISBN: 9780996839044 ASIN: B06XPTS6W2 Reviewed For NetGalley and Cara Bristol Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.5 Stars I'm Starr Elizabeth Conner. Earth's government falsely convicted me of a crime, packed me on a ship with other female felons, and sent us to Dakon, a primitive, frozen wasteland of a planet. Why? Earth needs minerals, and Dakon is desperate for females. But I'm no barbarian’s 'mail order bride,' even if he is super tall, muscular, and the chief of his tribe. He doesn’t want a BBW blonde, either--it's written all over his chiseled face. He'll be truly angry if he ever learns what my 'crime' was. I am Torg. I have waited 34 rotations for a mate of my own. With this shipment, I was sure to get a fine, sturdy mate who'll bear me many daughters. Instead, I receive a small, curvy, pale-haired female who looks at me with anger and fear. It is only when we 'kiss' that I believe things may work out between us. But I'm hearing rumors that Starr and her shipmates are law-breakers. To survive, Dakonians must obey all laws … or be exiled into the frozen wasteland. Just when I have found her, will I have to send my mate to die? I thought I had written this review months ago, but apparently it got lost in the shuffle. I can tell you I did not even need to open the story again to remember everything about the story. Torg blows his chance at first pick and he is allotted the last remaining bride. He is disappointed over everything about the human and is not shy about letting her know. Their rocky path, An assassin after Starr. There is so much crammed into one small book. Humor, passion, hope, and despair. My rating of "Alien Mate" is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I voluntarily received a copy of Alien Mate, in exchange for an honest review.  I absolutely freaking LOVED it!  This is a genre I read a lot, since I do love my aliens.  In Alien Mate I was sucked in from the beginning and I finished the book in one sitting.  The world and characters building was outstanding and I am really looking forward to more of this series.  It was funny, sexy, sweet, exciting, and a complete escape; which is what I look for in my alien romance books.  I am giving it 5 Huge Boundless stars, I can’t wait to read more!

This is a fast paced and steamy read. Starr has been accused a crime she didn’t commit and has been sent to Dakon. Dakon needs women and Torg is looking forward to finding his new mate but what will happen when he finds the real reason Starr was sent to Dakon. The story is entertaining and the chemistry between Starr and Torg is hot. I liked it!

This was a fun read that grabbed my attention from page one. It’s well written and nicely paced. I enjoyed reading about Starr and Torg. They have chemistry and while their romance developed a bit quickly I didn’t mind too much as I could feel their connection and how much they cared about each other. There are quite some hot scenes, but very little drama and conflict. There are some fun situation caused by cultural differences or misunderstandings which were fun to read. And I like how the author took a bit of time to describe the planet Dakon and give us a feel for it’s people. I had a lot of fun reading this one and plan to pick up more of Cara Bristol’s books in the future. I would recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun and hot alien sci-fi romance book.

Starr Connor was working for the government trying to help bring down the Carmichael crime family when she's falsely accused of murder. After having her trial expedited she ended up on a ship full of other criminals headed to the planet Dakon to become the bride of an alien. When she gets to Dakon she's freezing, miserable and being the last picked in the lotto compounded by her intended mate's expression when he meets her, she's ready to be done with this place and go back to Terran. But quickly after she gets to know her mate Torg, we'll just say that things don't always end up how you think they will. This was a awesome start to this new series. This was a fun, FAST read- hard to put down. I enjoyed the characters, the premise, and there was a good amount of action, adventure and hot steamy scenes. If you like sci-fi, you will enjoy this book! I would definitely read this book again. Can't wait for book 2 in the series!! Happy Reading!!
