Can she create a new family with an alien warrior?
On the anniversary of the disappearance of Mariah’s sister and nephew, Mariah returns to their last known location, expecting to find only painful memories. Instead, she encounters an alien spaceship and recklessly sneaks aboard, taking one last chance to be reunited with her family.
The desperate move sends her across the galaxy and straight into the arms of a massive alien warrior who is determined to protect her. But no matter how much she is drawn to him, she will not be distracted from her goal—to find her missing family at all costs.
Years ago, when Captain Cestov and his brother argued over the fate of their dying race, his brother stormed out of his life. He has been searching for him ever since. He never expected his search to lead him to a distant planet, a troubled ranch, and a little boy who calls him Daddy. And he certainly never expected an enticing human female who makes him consider putting down roots for the first time.
Neither Mariah nor Cestov ever thought they would find a permanent home. But can their shared love for a child help them to move on to a new future as a family? Or will the ghosts from their pasts tear them apart?
Each book in the Treasured by the Alien series can be read as a standalone romance. This sweet and steamy HEA is intended for adults only.
Review by Nancy
As far as Sci-Fi Romance is concerned, Honey Phillips & Bex McLynn are the “dynamic duo!” Mariah basicially abducts herself when she boards an alien ship in search of her lost sister and nephew. Luckily, she first encounters an alien friendly who helps hide her. Captain Cestov comes across the pair and his wayward tail tells him Mariah is his mate. (I always love those tails!!) #givemetails Cestove is one patient and kind male. I enjoyed the fun addition of the Slongas (an alien animal) and how Lillat adopted gruff Cestov. I imagined a little pink Dumbo with fur like a Snuffleupagus running around the ship! There’s such a variety of events occurring in this book that it was a real page-turner for me. I couldn’t put it down and was up until the wee hours of the morning reading. Anyway, this story was a great adventure, a sweet love story, and a very steamy romance wrapped in one. I love the theme of adoption in this story, too. Who we choose to be our family is just as important as who is family.
This is book 2 in the Treasured by an Alien series. It truly reads as a stand-alone. I had the pleasure of beta reading and I loved this sweet romance! I’m hoping for more in this series and would love to see a book for Whovian and Maldost. Thank you, Honey & Bex! 5 Super Stars
