I grew up in space.
Never been on a planet, let alone an alien one.
We crashed—I crashed—our ship on a huge green world.
Communications were down, the ship was broken in two, the crew mostly injured, and there were things out there. Animals with razor sharp teeth.
The emergency beacon lay on the other side of the jungle, our only way to call home, a

I don't know how I found it but it was similar to Ice Planet Barbarians. Maybe my Kindle is suggesting me all too similar stories now but whatever I didn't mind and it was OK read.

I'll look forward to next story but will read only if it's available as part of kindle-unlimited otherwise I'll pass.

A steamy, sweet and stellar sci-fi adventure! This story definitely runs the gamut of emotions, ranging from anxiety to happiness to longing, desperation, hope, you name it! Anne proved herself yet again as a talented writer by not only conveying what the characters were feeling, but her imagery is just unreal (in a very good way). I felt like I was on the Crashlander planet! Wendy is absolutely a riot and Venturi is absolutely adorable with a fierce alpha side, to be sure. I also met a cast of ...more

Great sci-fi romance series!!!

This story tells of the main character, a human named Wendy, who has lived her entire life on a space station - she volunteered to be a test pilot, but the first test flight goes into a territory where there was not supposed to be any planets and the planet comes into the viewfinder too fast and they crash land, breaking their ship in two and losing two crew members right away. The second part of their ship, the part with the communications beacon is very far away a

First human faster than light mission goes wrong, the ship crashes on a perilous alien world, and a lone female risks radiation sickness to track down a beacon that may send a message back to Earth. Along the way she is rescued by and quickly mate-bonded to an alien male that looks absolutely nothing like the guy on the cover(s).

The story revolves around the female protagonist making some blindingly stupid decisions in an effort to save the rest of the human crew and a few sex scenes with the al

Dont get it

I understand that the alien romance genre has been done over and over again but I don't understand author's creating an Alien Hero that is so alien it is clearly not sexy. I do not find the combination of features as described by this author to be remotely attractive and trying to picture in my mind detracted from the story. Crazy shark teeth, black velvety scale like skin, long braids, clawed fingers and toes, cat-like eyes with the crazy pupils it's just too much. It was also a litt

I actually loved this book

Ok, there’s a lot going on in this book, but I’m only going to point out the thing that made my nerd heart go pitter patter for this author: the psychology she explored of humans born in space and how they would react when put on a planet. It was...amazing. I loved that exploration as much as I loved Venturi and Wendy. This is a definite yes on your tbr.

Space Adventure

A human piloted spaceship crash lands on an alien planet. Only the air has deadly radiation that will slowly kill the humans if they do not get their emergency signal working. Thus begins a wonderful space adventure with other alien beings, dangerous alien life forms, and a massive Amazon like terrain. And romance, don't forget the hot alien romance. Woot!

Fun read.

I've read books similar to this kind of story in the past, never expecting a whole lot since I've been disappointed before with books i considered to be pretty good but turned out to not be so.
So I'm gladly to be proofed wrong with this one.
Read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next one on the crashlander series.

Thrilling and sexy serial – all in one place!!

Part 1: Wendy is test-flying the first faster-than-light spaceship when things go very wrong. She was raised on a space station so flying in atmosphere was not one of her experiences. Crash-landing on a planet took everything she had to make it survivable. Their flight was supposed to be part of a day – so nobody packed, and the ship only has a first aid kit. From history-maker to castaway on an alien planet in a heartbeat.

If you've never read Ruby Dixon's Ice Planet Barbarians you might enjoy this book. However if you have, you'll read this book thinking it's a rip off as it and Ruby's first book follow a very similar pattern.

I had a hard time reading this. The writing style is not for me.
I don't care to read first person books And I don't like it when it switch from one person to another still in first person.

I did enjoy this story - very well written. It is a cliffhanger with several unanswered questions at the end of the book.
