Danger and desire...for one Interstellar Bride, they prove an irresistible mix.

Whitney Mason is the daughter of a Wall Street con man. When he is sent to prison and her family's name is destroyed, she is eager for a new life on a new world. Anywhere but Earth. Tested by the Interstellar Brides Program, she is matched to a strong Viken warrior. What she doesn't know is that her mate and the other two warriors waiting to claim her are on a secret and dangerous mission for the Coalition Fleet's Intelligence Core. From the moment she arrives on Viken, they are forced to lie to her... about everything... except their desire.

For Alarr, Oran and Teig, the arrival of a bride is an unexpected complication. The timing couldn't be worse, but IC command is thrilled. A bride is the perfect cover, giving the fighters access to every inch of the famous pleasure resort where they are working undercover. The males are eager to satisfy their new mate, but keeping her safe is their top priority, even if that means lying to her and using her pleasure to take down the enemy. But their sexy mate's past will come back to haunt them all, for even if they survive the mission, the truth will be revealed and their beautiful, curvy female can forgive anything—except lies.

LUST—LOVE—DESIRE—NEED—TRUST As with the other Interstellar Bride books by Ms. Grace Goodwin, they read great as a continuing saga, but each book will read well as a stand-alone. In this story, Whitney Mason from Earth will volunteer for the bride's program and to leave Earth and all the troubles behind caused by her family. She will be matched as mate to Vikens, Alarr, Oran, and Teig. Vikens males mate as three to one female. The males will each be chosen from a different sector of Viken. “I’d never been pushed out of my comfort zone when it came to sex. But I knew that was going to change, and the thought both thrilled and terrified me. Started over. Remember that. No rules. No history. Just me. And them. My mates. All three of them.” The problem with the testing and sending females to their chosen mates is that the computer system does not take into account where the males are at the time. They will receive a quick warning that a mate is on the way. For Alarr, Oran, and Teig, they are IC and on an undercover mission at Trixon Pleasure Resort on Planet Viken. They are limited to what they can do and how they will claim their new mate, Whitney. In the tradition of the Viken, a true claiming will include three males, claiming their female. “I wanted three. All three. Dedicated to me. Touching me. Taking care of me. My family had been a mess my whole life. Liars. Con men. Thieves. Not to be trusted. I had always—always—had to take care of myself. It would be so amazing and wonderful to be able to trust someone else. Three someones. I could trust my new mates. Finally, I could trust someone. Fall in love. Give them everything. I’d already given up my world, my planet. Everything I knew. For Alarr and Teig and Oran. My mates.” The story has mystery, suspense, passion, secrets, and angst. Not everything is as it seems, and things don’t always work out as planned. While each of the three is attentive to her when they are with her, they are issues—and what happened to the claiming? Whitney has thirty days to accept the match or request a new one. Has the past with her family clouded her judgment with the present? Whitney doesn’t know who or what to believe—has she been naïve in trusting her chosen mates? Have they made a fatal error in keeping her in the dark about their mission? She is the one who must decide if she will accept them or allow Warden Egara to find her a new match. “We’d wronged Whitney in so many ways. Used her mind, her body—and her heart against her. We’d lied. Deceived. Used. Yes, we’d been following orders, but that did not lessen Whitney’s pain. We should have trusted her, as she had trusted us.” “Trust can only be given if someone possesses two traits, the courage to take a chance on knowing someone might hurt you, and the confidence to know you’re strong enough to survive if they do.” The story will bring Whitney, Alarr, Oran, and Teig together, and yet they must learn how to join their lives and responsibilities. Sometimes the job will not allow emotions to come into play—but just maybe there is a way to have a bit of give and take. The chemistry between Whitney and her chosen mates sizzles on the pages, and they just feel right together. When it comes down to it, each person or alien needs someone that is in their corner has their best interest at heart and has the love and passion for making life better. Not everyone needs to be judged based on what happened to you in the past—just look towards the future.

At 131 nook pages it was good, but wished it had more into the characters and a bit longer. It had conflict, steamy scenes, action, heartache, and a quick read.****

Whitney was able mated to the Viken. Problem? Yes To be mated while your men working and they can't tell you about being deep cover and omission of the truth is what Whitney is she hates the most. Can they make it work to not blow up in their face? HEA That they have to work at. Whew it gets deep. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Grace Goodwin - Viken Command (Interstellar Brides Book 18) It was great to have another addition to the series that involved Viken Mates. The three warriors, Alarr (the one she is matched to), Oran(into control and a bit of bondage), and Teig (playboy) make a great match to the matched female, Whitney. Whitney has joined the Interstellar Brides program to get away from earth and her family. Her father has been involved in a Ponzi scheme and although not a part of this, Whitney has become a victim of this fallout as well. The chemistry Whitney and her Viken trio is off the chart but something is “off”. The Viken males are actually on a secret mission at a pleasure resort( would have liked to had them have more interaction and play at the resort). The males are sworn to secrecy even from their mate so they must protect her as well as keep their mission hidden. The one thing that is a dealbreaker for Whitney is dishonesty so she and her males find a way through this mess. The book was very entertaining, sizzling hot scenes , some intrigue and misunderstandings. Love having Queen Leah and her Kings as a part of the story. Another enjoyable quick read, page turning visit to the world of Interstellar Brides.

The characters are well-developed, strong-willed & delightfully interesting with a variety of traits with a determination to succeed. There is: a young woman (Whitney) desperate to distance herself from her family’s wrongdoings joins the Interstellar Brides Program & is matched to a Viken warrior ( Captain Alarr) who is part of a triad with ( Oran & Teig) & they are ordered to use her for undercover infiltration then she discovers that, the Prillion warrior commander & I.C. contact (Doctor Helion), friendship, twists & turns, intrigue, drama, secrets, mystery, missions, alibis, adventure, action, secrets, danger, enemies, conflict, violence, deceit, betrayal, memories, family issues, attractions, mates, subtle manipulations, misunderstandings, heartache, emotional turmoil, decisions, determination, confrontation, protectiveness, compromises, contentment, love, happiness, steamy scenes & a satisfying ending. I would recommend this Sci-Fi romance.

Whitney Mason knew she was restrained in a chair being tested at the Interstellar Brides Processing Center. But the three guys were amazing! Warden Egara asked if she was okay, then smiled and told her the test was successful and she was matched to a Viken male – and they mate in units of three, one from each sector of their planet. Whitney was eager to meet her mates and to leave Earth. She had not committed a crime, but her family had used a pyramid scheme to steal millions from unsuspecting people. Everywhere Whitney went, he was treated badly, lost friends, could not get a job. She was innocent, but she was the one people could point at and blame. The three men who had just been matched were deep undercover on a mission for the Coalition Fleet's Intelligence Core and arguing with Dr. Helion, their commander, that they could not allow their new mate to be there and in danger while they completed their mission tracking the illegal shipments of Coalition weapons being transferred on Viken at the Trixon resort. Leaving the mission now would blow their cover and all that work would be lost. Dr. Helion was not willing to let them go over a female, and they had to acknowledge that he was right. Captain Alarr, Oran, and Teig finally agreed to stay on the mission under certain conditions. Having their bride here would also give them access to more areas of the pleasure resort. This was the best compromise they could do – and she would be protected at all times. But trust is all-important to Whitney. Because of her family, she will not tolerate or forgive lies for any reason, orders or not. When the truth comes out that her mates lied to her and did not divulge the truth of the situation, would she reject them, despite their love for each other?

I LOVE Grace's Interstellar Bride Program series. So you are probably wondering why I went to 4 stars. While I usually go a straight 5 star when it comes to these books and can't put these books down. But with this one, I couldn't connect totally with Whitney. She didn't do it for me. I mean, I finished the book and enjoyed it. But she didn't connect for me, so that made the story not as exciting for me as it should have been. Whitney has a problem with people and trusting them. So that is a massive theme with this story. When her mates end up not telling her everything, she ends up running away and getting into trouble. For me, I couldn't tell if that was a "human" thing or a "childish" thing. These are my pet peeves. Whitney does grow up by the end of the book. I have no complaints when it comes to Alaar, Oran, and Teig... :) I mean, how could you.

I have always loved each and every book that Grace Goodwin has written of the Interstellar Brides Series. This book is no exception. And each book makes me wish the next book will be published sooner. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I have never been disappointed in an Interstellar Brides book. Even though the Atlans are my favorites among the different alien species in this series and the Vikens my least favorites, every single book is at least a good read with most being great. Even though this book is set on Viken, these three warriors are part of the Coalition's I.C. and once their mission is through, they will return to their post with the Zeus Battlegroup (so, it has nothing to do with the politics on Viken and the troubling VSS). And because it has nothing to do with the war against the Hive, it is truly a standalone. This book seems shorter than previous books and Whitney gets the most characterization. Alaar, Oran, and Teig are given physical descriptions and a little bit of personality traits to help distinguish them from each other. There are some hot scenes as Whitney's mates try and keep her occupied and out of harm's way. It is a fairly quick read (it only took me about 2 hours) with a small twist towards the end. While this story has a happy ending for Whitney and her Vikens, my heart was hurting for Kayson and his friends (read the book - that's all I'll say) and I honestly felt that Kayson and crew were more intriguing and compassionate than other characters in the story (all fingers crossed that Kayson and his friends are the next to hit the Interstellar lottery). Overall, another good book, just not one of my favorites, as I prefer Hive action or Colony heartaches or just a big freakin' Atlan!

I absolutely loved reading this book, it's a page turner and it was fun to see some characters from previous book. The writing is excellent, it's sexy, the chemistry off the chart. It has some action and some new characters and old characters that I hope will get their own books too

Enjoyed the book. To escape all of the lies and the deceit, Whitney tests for the Interstellar Brides Program and is matched the same day to Alarr an alien warrior and is transported within hours. Alarr chooses Tieg and Oran to also mate with Whitney as is the custom of their people. Unfortunately they are in the middle of a top secret mission and their commander orders them not to tell her any of this, and that is where things start to go wrong. The story is well written, entertaining and holds your attention. There is a lot going on in this story which keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. This is a great continuation of this series and I would highly recommend it.

Viken Command by Grace Goodwin is part of her Interstellar Brides Program. Whitney Mason has had enough trouble to attend the interstellar brides program and is about to leave earth, ready to be matched to an alien warrier. And they gets matched right away to Viken males. The Captains Alarr, Oran and Teig are on a secret, mission when they learn they were matched to an Earth bride. They're happy to oblige, but it's a case of wrong time, wrong place. What happens next is the worst they could do - sorry no sorry no spoilers here. Only so much theyir actions are the reason for Whitney to act. She has major trut issues, with good reason. Viken Command is another nsfw read that had me on the edge of my seat from start til the end. 4,5 Stars.

Abandoning the past This book is a perfect addition to the Interstellar Brides Program series. If you think it is only full of intense foursomes, you are wrong. Yes the author keeps us intrigued by all of the mating aspects, but where some fail she manages to bring us this entire action and adventure story to compliment the entertainment. I love how the author has entwined these two concepts and really keeps us on our toes right until the very end. I hope the next book features the helpful three. They really deserve their own HEA after being disappointed.
