Warlord Wulf thought nothing could be worse than being tortured and contaminated by the Hive. That was before he’s ordered to transport to Earth and represent The Colony in an unfamiliar horror… a human reality show. The Bachelor Beast is the hottest new program on Earth, but being set up with two dozen clingy females is not his idea of a good time. When his Beast refuses to show the slightest interest in any of the show’s potential mates, he knows he must choose one or die due to his raging mating fever.
His Beast prefers execution to claiming anyone but his true mate. Wulf is resigned to his fate, a one-way trip to Atlan, a prison cell and execution. It is the only honorable thing left to do.
Until one glance, one sweet, feminine scent lingering in the air and his beast rages for a female who is not supposed to be his.
But try telling that to his Beast when his entire body transforms on live television and one simple word thunders from his lips…MINE.
Point of view:
This was part of a “go in blind” challenge – where I had to pick a romance series based purely on the covers. Which I have never done before. I’ve also never experienced any of Grace Goodwin’s writing. This was full of surprises all around.
I actually thought this was going to be a romantic suspense set in space. I was off on that -as this is humanoid aliens seeking brides. Wulf agrees to an Earth-based reality TV show (like The Bachelor) and has narrowed down to a final two contestants. Since neither is his “fated mate” he’s frustrated. Then he sees make-up artist Olivia and knows he has to have her.
I love that even though it’s fated mates, there’s no questions about consent. Olivia is 100% interested and willing. There’s several very steamy scenes. 🔥🔥🔥
I also loved discovering that Olivia is single mom to her orphaned niece & nephew. Wulf is fantastic with the kids as well as Olivia. Loved this new little family.
There was actually a little suspense as Olivia is in peril over deeds from her deceased brother and Wulf gets to save the day.
There’s an HFN for these two and I like the way Goodwin wrapped up the story.
Note: This is obviously a spin-off from another series and many of those characters are mentioned. Goodwin gives enough info that I didn’t feel lost or confused about who they were.
I loved both Mia Sloane and Tor Thom’s performances. Both did a wonderful job with various voices and emotions. Such an easy and fun listen.
