Atlan Warlord Jorik guards the Coalition Fleet's Processing Center on Earth, protecting warriors and brides without mercy or distraction...until he sees Gabriela. She is everything the beast within him craves. Soft. Curved. Unafraid. He dreams of courting her properly, wooing her into accepting his beast's claim, and making her his—body and soul. Danger strikes and his beast takes control—resulting in his immediate removal from Earth. From Gabriela.

Gabriela fell in love with an alien Warlord who fought to save her life, then disappeared, only to learn he was later killed in a battle with the Hive. She moves on with her life as best she can, with one beautiful reminder of their time together. A baby.

When she learns Jorik isn't dead, but banished to the Colony, she and the baby are sent to find him. The problem? He's not just contaminated, he's been newly matched by the Interstellar Brides Program. And not to her.

The Beasts Are Back! Professionally written and extremely fast-paced, “Cyborg’s Secret Baby” features a slightly different story-line than the established Interstellar Brides novels, bypassing the bride matching program for a more traditional relationship approach. Taking place on Earth, at the Coalition Processing Center in Miami, the Atlan Warlord Jorik is assigned along with other human and alien warriors to protect the facility. Although similar to human males, the evident differences of the coalition alien warriors require their confinement to a small radius surrounding the facility to limit contact with the human populous who might be frightened by those differences. Gabriela works and resides within this radius, passing the center daily on her walk to work at an ice-cream shop. Under the premise of trying each flavor the shop offers, Jorik pursues Gabriela finding her plus size figure perfectly enticing. During their final encounter at the shop, a life-threatening situation occurs placing Gabriela in grave danger. Jorik, along with his internal beast, react with typical Atlan conduct, eliminating the threat and transporting Gabriela to the safety of her home. Ensconced within the security of Gabriela’s apartment, the couple surrenders to their primal attraction, until Jorik is ordered back to the Processing Center and immediately exiled from Earth. A distraught Gabriela soon finds herself completely alone and pregnant with the alien’s baby. With likeable characters, great world-building, plenty of action and suspense, the engaging story-line flows seamlessly until the very last page. However, some readers may find the narrative a bit predictable at times, others (like myself) may welcome the prescribed expectations within established story-lines. Characters from previous entries make appearances and support the narrative throughout. Emotionally gripping, especially for those invested in the series, “Cyborg’s Secret Baby” is a very entertaining sci-fi romance with a tantalizing touch of Ms. Goodwin’s trademark heat. Although the story-line sizzles, the overtly absent “bride testing dream environment” appears to reduce the uniquely erotic ambiance present in previous novels. “Cyborg’s Secret Baby” is presented from dual perspectives, contains no cheating and could be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading previous entries for total enjoyment. Overall, “Cyborg’s Secret Baby” is a highly entertaining novel and an enjoyable addition to such a stellar series. Can’t wait for Wulf’s story… cause Atlanians do it best!

I WANTED HER TO BE MY SWEET TREAT While this book is part of a series, it reads well as a stand-alone. The Interstellar Brides program was designed to match up mates from Earth to Alien on various planets. But, this story will start on Earth with various aliens working at the Interstellar Bride Processing Center, where brides are matched with aliens. Warlord Jorik will be working in Miami and will watch a beautiful woman walk to work each day. He even goes to the shop, Sweet Treats, and visits with her. While neither of them is in the IBP program, Jorik and his beast know that she is their mate. He is very protective of her. “My apologies, Warlord, I didn’t realize she was yours.” “Humanity had a lot to learn. Our females were revered. Respected. Treated with the utmost care and treasured for what they truly were—precious.” The plot will have Jorik and Gabriela becoming friends as he visits the ice cream shop, and they chat. She will introduce him to new flavors of ice cream. But when there is an attempted robbery, he will do whatever is necessary to keep her safe—even killing the criminal and taking Gabriela to her home. It doesn’t take long for these two to become intimate, and then he is called back to the faculty, and from there, everything changes. Jorik is sent back to fight the Hive and will be captured along with several other Atlan warlords. When they escape it isn’t without complications, and they can’t return to Atlan, but instead, they will live with other Hive survivors. “They’d captured a beast and made me a monster. I could never undo what they’d done to me. But I didn’t care. I was still Warlord Jorik of Atlan. My mind was my own, thank the gods. And this body they’d made for me? It was mine now, too.” But his time from Earth will have alarming news for both Gabriela and him. She has a secret she never got to share with him, and then she is told he is dead. He believes she has married someone else when he contacts IBP. Is this the end of their happiness? Or will Warden Egara discover the truth and become involved? What is the protocol for a human-alien baby born on Earth? “You are a gift, mate. And you are beautiful. Even more beautiful now than you were before. Every curve, every mark on your body is precious to me. I am not the same, either. We have been through much while apart. We are different, but we know each other.” “She had taken a male lost in dark despair and given me hope. She’d been my key to survival, my drive, my fight, my dream as the Hive had tortured me. Every moment had been worth I, for it brought me here to her.” Will Jorik and Gabriela have a second chance at happiness? Will the birth of their child be enough to unite them? Is there anything that can alter their chance of forever? “You are mine, Jorik. We might not have been matched by a stupid computer, but we’re perfect for each other.” “Mine. No one else’s. One look and I knew you belonged to me. Never will you be taken from me again. Never will we be apart. You are mine, and I am yours.” The story shows that when two are meant to be, they know it and nothing can change what their bodies, hearts, and souls feel. The story is wrought with passion, separation, desire, and determination. While the birth of a child is a blessing and sacred, the love between an Atlan and his mate is forever.

Atlan Warlord Jorik is guarding the Coalition Fleet's Processing Center on Earth, assigned to protect warriors and brides. Gabriela works nearby and walks to work, giving Jorik the opportunity to see her and want her. He is drawn to her plus size figure and pursues her. However, when a dangerous situation arises that could harm Gabriela, Jorik does what Atlans do best! He takes her to her apartment and two of them get together to take care of their strong attraction. When Jorik is ordered to return to the Processing Center, he is exiled from Earth. Gabriela is pregnant from their short time together. Now she needs to track down where Jorik has gone, despite the unforeseen obstacles – such as being told he was dead! When she learns Jorik is not dead, but had been banished to the Colony, she and the baby go to find him. Can she do that? Will it be too late for them? And will Jorik be able to get out of the new matching arranged by the Interstellar Brides Program – matched with another woman! Once again, this author absolutely amazes me with the quality of her books. Her writing flows effortlessly and takes the reader into adventures like no other! The story line is excellent, providing a touch of tension and constant suspense for the reader as the plot unfolds. The characters are developed well and very likable, the hero strong, honorable, brave – Atlans are my favorite! The reader will connect with Jorik and Gabriela and strongly experience the fear and frustration for her as she tries to find the father of her child. Don’t miss this extraordinary book! This one is a bit different from the usual path to happiness since it occurs on Earth and they find each other the old-fashioned way! But this is a love story you will adore! Be part of the experience and enjoy every moment!

Gabriela and Warlord Jorik can't get any breaks. It seems that everything that could go wrong does. Do they overcome these obstacles or is there more than Murphy's law at work? The Atlans and the Cyborgs are two of my favorites in this series. Win-Win

Grace has done another fabulous job at another addition to the intergalactic bride program. This time a warrior/berserker has fallen for a woman who is not in the program. If she is not enrolled is she really his mate? This is a twist from all the other ones that have been written in that I read. I enjoyed this book it was a nice quick read for me. Because once I start a good one book it is hard to put it down. Thank goodness some of them are on CDs because I can drive a listen to her crazy stories. This was especially nice I had a couple twists but I did not see coming. I like to quick adventure that takes place in the story and how everything finally fell into place by the end of the book. It is definitely an HEA book and if you have good connections, there is also an extra snippet to read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Cyborg's Secret Baby by Grace Goodwin is book 7 in her The Interstellar Brides: The Colony series. Every book can easily be read as a standalone. Atlan Warlord Yorik is through a lot and the only thing that kept him sane was his mate. His secret mate on Earth. Gabriela Silvas is a strong woman. Lonely and in love with an alien warrior. A one time encounter leads to a oopsie, amd I'm a sucker for these kind of stories. When you're looking for a scorching hot nsfw read, this is your book.

Cyborg’s Secret Baby (Interstellar Brides; The Colony Book 7)-Grace Goodwin The 7th book in the Interstellar Brides- Colony Book is a great read especially if you’ve already been enjoying this fun sexy exciting series. I loved that the story begins on earth at an Interstellar Brides processing Center in Florida. Jorvik, an Atlanta Warlord is part of the team guarding the center. It’s very adorable that he develops a crush on a woman who passes him everyday on her way to her work at an ice cream store. Of course Jorvik develops a sweet tooth for the delicious treats at the store and goes daily to get his ice cream fix and his fix of his crush. As it turns out the woman, Gabriella has also been secretly crushing on the sexy hot Atlan and makes sure he gets to taste a new flavor daily. When Jorvik rescues her from danger they discover the mutual attraction is very real and their “mating” is five of hot. Unfortunately Jorvik does not have his mating bracelets with him and then he gets in trouble with the earth authorities for protecting Gabriella. He gets sent to a battleship where he is with several warriors we’ve gotten to know in previous books, and has no idea his earth mate is pregnant. There are several exciting twists, turns and misunderstandings that pull at your heartstrings and have you holding your breath. Although we know an HEA is coming the storyline is a very entertaining sci-fi romance adventure that is sizzling hot and a great read. Written with the authors talented writing in this genre and keeps us coming back for more. This book is a stand-alone but readers should take advantage of enjoying the series for an even better experience.

I found this to be an absolutely wonderful read and a terrific addition to this series. I felt that this book could be very easily read as a standalone so, if that is an issue for you, feel free to jump right in with this one. I thought that Jorik and Gabriela's story was incredibly moving. There is a lot of sweet moments in this book, some angst, drama, emotional turmoil and painful heartache. This read will give you all the feels and have you sighing, your heart melting and shedding a tear or two. You will be fully engaged and invested as this couple struggles to overcome so many obstacles to get the HEA that they so richly deserve. In my opinion this is a beautiful, five star, swoon worthy read!

Two days and the space between them. Arkansas Warlord Jorik has a major Jones for the human Gabriela. Gabriela works at an ice cream shop. Jorik would like to lick all her flavors. He wants her fries and her milkshake. They share one day and then he’s forced to leave his mate. The space between them is vast and includes fighting pits and a baby. It’s only after Gabriela has her baby, that she’s reunited with Jorik, but a cray-cray force named Wendy is keeping them apart, once she arrives the day after Gabriela, claiming to be is matched mate. Can it be? They’ve only really had two days. And the space between. Recommend. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An Atlan Warlord finds love in this WOW! of an awesome read. I have always enjoyed The Colony series books but this story is so good I read it thru the night and did not get to bed until 3 am! I could not put it down until I finished it. Grace Goodwin never disappoints her fans. It has the perfect blend of passion, drama, angst and steam heat woven within a flawlessly written and captivating storyline with some interesting twists and turns. The Atlan Warlord Jorik and feisty human Gabriela are so perfect together, their chemistry is outstanding and they were an amazingly strong couple. I never like to give plot details because writing is an author’s livelihood but I Loved! Loved! Loved! Gabriela and Jorik’s story. I highly recommend.

I really like this author and this series! This book got my attention from the fist page to the last. It has some amazing characters, the story is well written and interesting, it has some cute scene, some really steamy scene and some action. For the reader who follow the series you will see some familiar characters, but don't worries if you are new to this series you will still understand and enjoy reading the book. The only thing I have to complain is that now I want more, there are so many characters who deserve a story I can't wait to see what's next .

So happy to have a new Colony story the contaminated warriors all deserve their mates. Jorik meets Gabriela while guarding the interstellar bride processing center after he saves her life and they have an incredible night together before he is called away. Sent form Earth he has two years of service left before he can claim a bride even though he knows she is his mate. On Earth believing he is dead Gabriela goes on and has his baby. When the are finally reunited Jorik cannot believe Gabriela had his baby while he was being held captive by the Hive. Both Jorik and his beast know Gabriela is his mate but a sinister force is trying to tear them apart. Can their love survive through all the hardships? Love the Colony books they are my favorite all the warriors be they Altan, Prillon, Everin or Human deserve loving mates they are so amazing and when they see baby Jori they all turn to mush. I read this in one sitting now I am dying for the next book in the series. This can be read as a standalone but you will get more out of the stories if you read the other books in the series first.

There is a definite reason that I love the Atlans and especially those on the Colony. Grace has given us another fantastic story (though it really kicks into super high gear once the couple is reunited on the Colony). This one does not start out with an Interstellar Bride but with an Atlan and his beast who have found their mate the old fashioned way - by chance. Jorik's journey to slowly win his mate is catapulted due to unforeseen circumstances and those circumstances have dire consequences for our couple. With all the different forces conspiring to keep our couple apart, that shiny beacon know as Warden Egara once again works her magic. I really loved the way Jorik and the rest of the Colony inhabitants reacted to baby Jori (these Colony stories break my heart with each and every mention of an unmated Colony warrior). The twist with Jorik's Interstellar Bride once again reveals just how awesome it would be to have an Atlan of your own. This story leaves me with one giant burning question for Grace Goodwin - WHEN IS WULF GETTING HIS STORY? Needless to say, I gobbled this book up so quickly, that now I just want the next book in the series and though I love the Atlans and everyone on the Colony and want their stories sooner rather than later, I know there are other stories to tell. I started this series on book #2 (Mated to the Warriors) and I believe it has gotten better and better. In my opinion some of the stories are true stand-alones (Trion, Rogue 5 and Vikens) and others are more satisfying if you have the whole background on the Hive war (Prillons, Atlans, and Colony). It doesn't really matter how you read them but READ them!
