As an intergalactic cop gifted with psionic abilities, Maurra instinctively went to the Ellinod's defense when she saw the immense and bestial-looking alien being attacked by a group of vicious Kronners. Little did she know what the Kronners had planned for her and the Ellinod until she woke up naked in a cell inside their ship. And it wasn't long before she found out a tr ...more

The entire time, all I could think about was the scene from Orange is the New Black when Crazy Eyes tells the prison psychologist about her alien erotica. So damn funny.

So this was my first 'alien' romance novel. I must say, I found it rather good. It took a while to get used to the different alien names and other 'futuristic' sayings, but once I did, I found myself unable to put this book down!

You know, sometimes you just need a little dirty alien sex. And this book delivers that --in spades. Maurra is an intergalactic psionic cop... a JoJo. She can use her mind as a weapon, as well as her fists. And she has to do just that, when she witnesses a group attacking a giant alien at a bar. What she doesn't realize is, she is actually the target.

The bad guys knock her out and she awakens in captivity, along with the alien she comes to know as Safan. She quickly finds out that her captors pl

You guys know I'm a mood reader, right? And, no, that's not a like a mood ring or anything. I don't even know how you could be a mood ring reader. Which is really not the point. I read what I'm in the mood to read when I'm in the mood to read it. Sometimes - like last night - I get in the mood for books about naughty, somewhat non-consensual sex between aliens. You know what? I'm secure enough in myself to admit that. I like naughty books that are set in space where aliens are doing it. I also l ...more

I like this story because usually it would have ended once they escape their 'prison'. HOWEVER, Mooney kept going with the novel about the ramifications of them breaking their rules once they escaped.

Maurra has made a lot of enemies, an added bonus to her occupation duty. The whole plan was carefully planned for her to be captured along with Safan. He was picked because he had a big *cough, cough* 'asset'. Her humiliation would be that much greater, not to mention the whole concept of it being r

Meh... I skipped to the end, which was somewhat interesting with her breaking him out of prison, but then gave up. So this is a dnf.

The beginning was great! I loved the setup, but the first sex scene was horrible (and realistic, I'll give you that), and once they were freed it just went downhill from there. I may have had too high expectations...

Quick Review: Oh wow! The story was short but complete and well written. The plot was exceptionally planned and the h and H were fantastic. I want more!

When Maurra steps in to stop a fight between an Ellinod and Kronners outside a bar, she is taken out from behind by another Kronner. She wakes up naked in a cell on a ship with the Ellinod prisoner in another cell as well. Their captor demands that they have intercourse while being recorded so that he can broadcast to paying "customers", if they don't he will kill the Ellinod and bring in a less humanoid creature to fornicate with Maurra. The story follows Maurra and Safan while in captivity and ...more
My first book from this author and I loved it! Maura is an intergalactic cop with psi abilities that she can use as a weapon. She tries to help a member of an alien species who is being attacked by another species (Kronners). It is all a setup and the Kronnors kidnap both Maurra and Safan, the Ellinod alien she was trying to help.

When she wakes up, she finds that her captors plan to force them to have sex for a pay-per-view audience. Beyond the fact that they are strangers, the situation is more

I love Alien Romance stories, but I have a new twist on it.  I don’t want the alien to be just a larger version of a human male.  I want him to be an alien and for the two to find love despite their differences.  

In Beauty’s Alien Beast, Maura is a Jojo, which is an intergalactic cop with psychic abilities.  She is a badass, no damsel in distress here.  She comes to the aid of an Ellinod who is being jumped.   That is when she and the Ellinod, Safan are captured.

Very well developed story! Erotica was on point!

Just enjoyed this one. It is Paranormal and in alien worlds so you know it will include weird creatures. Just sit back and enjoy. I did.

1.5 stars

There was a surprising amount of story in this considering it was "just" erotica. I liked the attempt to add an actual plot instead of it being a thinly veiled device to string sex scenes together, but it's too bad that much of it didn't really make much sense once I started thinking about it.

I lost track of how many times I reread this book over the summer after the initial purchase, but I'm making an effort to come back and review works I read from lesser-known authors to give them a signal boost.

Linda Mooney has a straight forward, slightly gritty writing style that I've commented in the past reminds me of a procedural drama on TV: it's not flashy, it's not flowery, it's Just The Facts, M'am, some of the conflicts are eye-rollingly easy to resolve, and it usually works pretty well

Well hello!
Captive Surrender by Linda Mooney
Maurra, our heroine, is a intergalactic cop with psi abilities who happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time... Or is she? A JoJo has a responbility to protect and she's very serious about it. In a heroic attempt to help an Ellinoid, she finds herself being taken along with him by very cunning bad aliens. Kronnans are sly sneaky bastards who have very cruel plans for them.

Points to take in account
a) Erotic, kinky, naughty-s

Redonk nutshell: Psi-space cop and huge horned alien are captured by rogue aliens and forced to have sex while being filmed

Okay. I'd be lying if I said I didn't giggle while writing the above. But literally, this is, more or less, the first half of Captive Surrender by Linda Mooney. The second half is our hero & heroine dealing with the repercussions of their actions, emotionally and, well, lawfully.

This was my first read by Linda Mooney, and I had no qualms with her style. I enjoyed the world

The best part was the sample, it went really downhill after that, but I couldn’t bring myself to DFN because I f’ing payed for it.

The mc was considerably ignorant of her own world. She’s supposed to be a top notch GALACTIC whatever, but didn’t know sh*t about planets and peoples under her jurisdiction. I’d say that would make you pretty sh*t at your GALACTIC job.
She certainly didn't come across as the sharpest tool in the shed.

The sex was meh, and it didn’t help that they practically had
This book was a great surprise. I was just expecting a wee book mostly revolving around sex and had passed it up numerous times while browsing for something new. But the characters were compelling and the plot was nicely paced and involved. The world building was nicely done too. I loved the strength of the heroine. The nicest surprise was how sweetly romantic the hero and heroine are together. Definitely looking forward to reading more from this author!

Liked it.
It was different than the usual sci-fi romance in that both the main characters were captive, when usually it's the woman abducted by the alien and then falls in love with him.

It started off different and interesting and promising but I feel like once they escaped it lost its way. Minor minor spoilers:

I don't know if it's just me but I feel like she slightly dumbed down in their interactions with each other/their relationship versus how she is outside of that. Not in the beginning in the cage but in their "regular" interactions.
I didn't like how he wasn't 100% forthright. He made made the distinction that he's never lied to her but I still didn't like him letting her

So different sooo good!

This was my first book by this author,but I can guarantee it won't be my last. This story was amazing from the beginning. Our make hero was truly alien with slight humanoid features. Strong,brave honorable and very sexy in his own right. Our heroine was also Beautiful, strong, smart and more open minded than any of the others around her. The story had all the elements of a scfi romantic action adventure. I cared about the characters and wanted them to be together despite a
I liked "Captive Surrender" despite the few discrepancies in the story. And despite that the characters could have been fleshed out a little more and there could have been more interactions between Maurra (the Human) and Safan (the Alien) to show the budding romance between the two.
I felt that Linda Mooney did a good job with the characters and story (especially for a book under 200 pages). She kept me engaged enough in the story that I wanted to find out whether or not they managed to escape.

Great style, adventurous romance

My first book by this author, really enjoyed the writing style, not disappointed to have purchased the book (usually borrow with ku subscription), it was worth it.

Mooney drops you directly into a new world and gives you exactly as much info as you need WHEN you need it, she doesn’t bog you down with heavy backstory. She fills you in so you never feel lost, but also don’t get bored. Sex is well written, you get a good feel on the characters POV mentally. Would have

The beginning was a bit shaky situation wise. As in it seemed like this was heading in a dark romance path, but then diverted into a good alien romance. Unique characters and enjoyable space travel adding in the ship. I always enjoy when alien romances involve ships / space travel to at least some degree. Happy ending. No cliff hangers. I would have preferred this being under Kindle Unlimited, but I was having a hard time finding anything else on KU today in alien romance I wanted to r

Down But Not Out

Murray and Safan was kidnapped by a vicious enemy. It started a cascade of enormous happenings. Mirada had a beautiful awakening with emotions she never allowed herself. Safan had found his mate with a human, no doubt. This is a surprising beautiful love story with some speed bumps. It is definitely a book for adults only, but what a book.

Audiobook Review - Well dayum, I wasn't expecting that but I loved it! Kick ass heroine cop and beastie alien male cop who are kidnapped by other little creepy aliens only to be forced to make illegal pornos for profit and revenge.
It's forbidden love with consequences but eventually has a HEA. Totally here for it 👍🤯👏
2.5 I guess
This could have been better. There was just so much of the sci fi world and it’s rules I did not buy into.
The ending kinda sucked and felt sloppy and rushed. I would be less disappointed if the book hadn’t shown promise at the start and I had not paid full price.

I recommend if it’s free or ever looped into KU. Can’t recommend paying $4

Loved this book when it was first published and with the revisions it is still an excellent book. The revisions were small but filled in some of the questions you may have had. I would highly recommend this book.

Wonderful Romance

The characters pull you into the story from the first page. I enjoyed the complexity of the plot and the action. There are no lulls in this story, start to finish. If you are a Beauty and the Beast junkie like me you won't want to miss this one.
