Explored By The Mountain Man in Space is book five of The Mountain Man series by Frankie Love. I love Frankie Love’s books and I love this series. But I was seriously wondering how it would be with a mountain man is space. Well, it was amazing. It wasn’t silly or weird. It was insta attraction but not insta love this time. Quite the opposite actually.

This was a quick read that was pretty dang good.

Mail order brides is one of my favorite tropes for western romances, so I knew I had to read this since it plays on that. Think mail order brides from the Wild West but transport that theme to the near future and the brides are going to another planet to help populate it. Nova is excited to start a new life where no one knows her because of her reality tv family, but when she meets her husband Nick, he gives her the cold shoulder. We have a little

Author: Frankie Love

4 unexpected stars

This isn't my first novel from Frankie Love's Mountain Man series, but it is, however, the first time I see them in space. Which i must admit, brought a twist that i hadn't expected in the least, and yet, it was the perfect twist that kept me captivated from start to finish to find out what would happen to our couple. Looking for something they never had on earth, Nick left in the hopes of gaining the rich

Gah it kills me to do this because I typically love Frankie Love books but I just couldn't with his one. The story itself was really interesting and different. What I couldn't deal with are the characters and there relationship. He was awful and rude to her up until like 80% then he loved her. They didn't even talk for two weeks. So no connection or chemistry what so ever. I was also disappointed in the announcement about Aurora then nothing else came about it. She wasn't mentioned a

This sounded like a different idea for a book so I wasn't sure what to expect going in. The girls in this have cool names! Nick and Nova, both of them move there looking for something, he wants to discover the stuff to make money for his family, she wants an escape and fresh start. They don't have an easy love connection in the beginning, he's kind of a butthead to her. I really liked this and would like to hear how the other characters r doing. It was a fun and easy read!

Markus Farrow is a mogul billionaire that owns a planet, Vitaie, that supposedly possesses a hallowed compound, Candoe. In order to retrieve this compound, he had to hire men to work in mines on the planet. Most men who signed up to work on the planet agreed to a 5 year contract, but there are others that are committed to stay until their job is complete and they actually discover Candoe on Vitaie. They only have one request: Wives.

He is a geologist that’s has moved to the planet Vitaie to search for a substance called candeo believed to have healing powers, Nick has lived on the planet for five years with numerous other men and they crave female attention, after the investor l

Really loving reading Frankie Love's books her characters never disappoint and this book is no exception. Nick and Nova are strong characters that draw you into their story. You feel the heartbreak that Nick feels as he tries to right the wrongs from his past and still be able to have a future on a strange planet that offers him the greatest possibilities. Nova a smart, beautiful, honest young woman trying to make her future as bright as her na

Nick is a geologist & hot bearded alpha mountain man now living on the planet Vitaie. Nova is his mail order bride & also the daughter of the man that ruined his families life. This charming novella not only has hot mountain men but it offers a twist with taking place in Space. A quick read with sexy mountain men & a sci-fi vibe. What do you get when you read this? A storyline that grabs your attention till the end as its Witty, Sexy, Full of Passion & Forgiveness. Nova is a sweet, caring, stron ...more

Honestly I went into this with super low expectations. I read the other books in the series and I’m a series finisher so I felt I had to read this. But to be honest I accidentally read a alien romance once before and I found it truly horrifying. Lol. So I was really expecting to hate this. But other than the fact that they colonized a new planet there was no weird alien shit and the story was actually well developed and enjoyable. Had I had higher expectations it might not have been a four star ...more

What a unique storyline. I have fallen in love with Frankie Love’s books and this one not only has the sexy mountain man vibe that she write so well, but also has a sci-fi vibe that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Nick is a geologist that has moved to the planet Vitaie to help mine for the rare substance Candeo. A substance that has healing powers and can help solve numerous problems back on earth. The investor learns, after 5 years, that to get the men to stay on they need women/wives to 1) keep them happ

I was a bit hesitant to read this book when is showed up on my e-reader. I'm not a fan of the futuristic romance stories, but this is Frankie Love, who never disappoints me, so I sat down and started to read. The fact that this takes place a another plant will play such a small part that you will not really even notice it. This is typical, spot on Frankie Love, with strong men and women and a sweet, sexy, touching love story. I really enjoyed Nova's character. She had such determination to prove ...more

Frankie does it again! This book was everything I have come to expect from Frankie and then some. The setting was painted beautifully, the storyline was realistic, yes even for a sexy mountain man in space, and the main characters were strong and yet still struggling like you'd expect from such a drastic change in lifestyle and location. I loved this story so much, even though I loved the HEA too, I could go for more Nick and Nova! This is a fast read with steamy love and a little danger. I high ...more

As with all Frankie Love books Explored by the Mountain Man in Space offers the perfect mixture of smut, sex and storyline.

Nick and Nova are good examples of how society today is a little messed up (hello reality tv) and how the impacts can last across planets. Its a little avatar meets the host and its brilliant.

As always the happy ending really makes the story worth the read. If you are looking for something quick and easy I would highly recommend this.

What a great imaginative mail order bride book. The star, Nova, sounds a whole lot like a Karadashian , only pure. The hero, Nick is the son whose family was swindled by the yard family. The do make a perfect couple after difficult times and disastrous falls. A new planet to expire and find cancel which makes fusion work. Very imaginative and wouldn't it be nice if it were true!

Explored by the Mountain Man in Space by Frankie Love was fantastic! I could not put the book down. Nova was a sweet character stuck with a stigma and all she wanted to do was get away from Earth and the drama her family started. Nick is a man who escaped Earth five years earlier and has been on a mission to find a mineral that could change life on Earth. I felt myself taken away on an adventure that I was not ready for. I loved the romance, the steam, and the drama that happens. I cannot wait t ...more

I absolutely cannot get enough of Frankie Love's mountain men. Going into this one I was a little apprehensive, not knowing what was going on, but it turned out to be a really good book. It was a quick, sexy, steamy read with a gorgeous bearded man and a very sweet woman. They balance each other out perfectly. I'm really hoping we get to hear more about these space mountain men.

Frankie Love has moved her mountain men to space!

Nick and Nova left Earth at different times because of events that took place in their lives. Who knew that they would be perfect match according to a computer program?!

Explored by the Mountain Man is a quick but entertaining read. Nick and Nova have wonderful chemistry. The book is a perfect mix of sweet and sexy.

I really hope Frankie continues with this theme and wraps up the stories she left openings for. She came up with an amazing idea to do mountain men in space without getting hokey or taking it too sci fi and I'd love to see more of these stories! (But I'm a sucker for Frankie's mountain men so I'll follow them anywhere.) ...more
