Take a Human female as a mate on the off chance of saving his race? Absurd.

At least that's what Prince Elorshin Do'ana thinks. It's true, the Alvan race is dying. There have been no new births in years and if they don't do something, their entire race is doomed. However, Elorshin doesn't want to bind himself to a mate that can't fully share in the fated bond that all Alv

When I saw the title how could I not read it? It was either going to be quite dreadful, or really good! Well, it was really good. Politics, intrigue, danger, romance and a bit of rumpy pumpy - going to look up the second in the series because you can never have too many blue alien hero’s 😃

I was disappointed that there wasn't more to the book. The title led me to believe there would be more to the story line dealing with a baby other than the last chapter. It had good potential but didn't live up to it.

Very good.
At last a story with an alien which doesn't have a girl obsessed with her weight and an alien addicted to BDSM.
Well written. And the story is engaging.
The moment at the agency made me laugh.
The world his hostile which brought a bit of piquant to the plot.
And the H is very attractive.
I liked, will probably read the next if we stay on this world.
The other prince, from the major house, was quite intriguing. I like anti-hero and the fact that he is a bit of a jerk at first ticked me.

I really enjoyed this book and hope that there will be future books of the Alvan race! I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it.

Easy read with lots of action!

Well this was certainly an adventure for our daring h, Margot. Lots for her to take in, learn, process... and even more to just survive!

Here's the bullet list:
- Good writing, few typos
- Very likeable characters
- Introduction of a fascinating new world
- Enough action to keep you on your toes
- Enough sexy times to make you fan yourself (when you're not wondering if Margot will make it to the end of this story in one piece)

So why not 5 stars?

Well, I feel like the title is a bit misleading or maybe my expectations were a tad off. To me, this story basically introduces the aliens and their hierarchy. I felt that the language barrier was a hindrance. It was also odd that her purpose, to have a baby, was so repeatedly rejected. The violence and weird deadly animals were...oddly timed. The flow just seemed off.

The title for this book almost doesn't fit. There is only one little section that has to do with a baby. I think a better title would have been 'A Mate for the Alien Prince' or something along that line. It was an interesting book. I got a few laughs out of her learning the language. Overall, it is a nice pleasant love story.

This was... interesting. The world building was awesome. I loved everything Martin created in this sci-fi world. The creatures, the minor and major houses...the struggle between good and evil was really well done.

The romance was a bit confusing at times. I really liked the main character and thought they made a great couple. Elorshin was a kind and gentle hero. I appreciated the fact that he didn't immediately accept Margot. Only because he doubted the probability that she would be his perfect

I'm not a huge fan of this genre, but I really enjoyed this book.

Margot is fed up with her life; she wants a family and that’s the one things she’s denied as a subterranean dweller. Elorshin wants a Paritella (something akin to a soulmate), but he’s denied that when the Prince of a Major House to whom he’s affiliated forces him to take a human bride. When Celestial Mates matches the pair together, Margot finds herself moving to a new world; one where she’s unwanted but very much needed.

I liked seeing the heroine trying to adapt to an alien culture and find her place in her new home (especially with the language barrier). I liked the hero, he's put in a place where he has to decide between his duty to his people and his desire for a bond with his potential mate. I liked seeing both Elorshin and Margot find common ground and work together to find what they really want in their relationship.

I wish I got the Celestial Mates part better. I was a little confused as to exactly what w

Celestial Mates matches humans and aliens "across time and space," so when Margot from an overpopulated, ecologically devastated future Earth dreams of a husband and children, her only option is to sign up. When she is instantly matched to Elorshin of planet Alva, it looks like a 'win some, lose some' situation. She still has to live underground, without sunlight, green grass or trees. There are incredibly vicious monsters called devos who prey on anyone foolish enough to be out in the dark. But ...more

I don't normally read sci-fi romance, but I enjoyed this novel. Margot is from Earth and lives underground, as only the super wealthy live in the sunlight in skyscrapers. All women are sterilized below ground to control the population. She is so desperate to no longer live in the darkness, that she goes to a mating agency to find an alien man on any planet. She wants to have children desperately, and she agrees to an immediate pairing on a distant planet. The book does not go into details on how ...more

This was a surprisingly good read. Had more going on than I initially thought. The romance was good.
Elorshin was basically saddled with an earth bride to repopulate. This was basically Margot's only chance to have a baby. But after the initial push and pull (on Elorshin's end), things settle and they have a really deep bond. I could've done with more sexy times, but hey, that's just me. But the sex scenes they had were pretty good. My favorite part was the unexpected fighting. Elorshin's world

Deep, emotional and hard to put down

This book was hard to put down. Margot is living a rough existence. It starts off in a dark dystopian Earth that is barely able to sustain life, with a harsh class system. Sloshing also is living in a dark and class derived planet. In it, like underground. How bad does Margot's life on Earth have to suck to think that this is an improvement? She doesn't know the language or the customs, she makes an egregious mistake, I mean, the drama just continues to build,

A solid four stars.
I liked it. The characters weren't wet fish, and the story was at least engaging.
And finally, a realistic approach to the language barrier.
Nothing gets me more annoyed than a poor approach to an obvious language issue. Use some universal implant if you must.
But I digress. I liked the people, I liked the story, and I enjoyed the HEA. It warmed the fuzzy spots on my cold, dead heart :)

The world could have been fleshed out a bit more, but it's to be expected from a first person p

A bit of false advertising..

I'm not quite sure why this book was called "A Baby for the Alien Prince"... It should be called "A Mate for the Alien Prince". There was no pregnancy and the baby was a few paragraphs in the final chapter. Although the story was well written and the characters were great, I'm disappointed because I really wanted to read a book about an alien making a baby....
This really was an excellent book, once you ignore the lack of pregnancy and babies, and I'd love to read mor

Catches you from beginning

In the future where every thing is controlled even if you have children, there is no other choice except to leave earth. Enjoyed how the author let their relationship build and they got to like each other first. I was routing for thee couple and then was a twist that just made the book better. Would read this again and will look for more books by this author.. Read this in one setting as couldn't put it down till finished it.
I have to say, I avoided this book for a little while simply because of the cover (no offense, but it is pretty lame). I'm glad I gave this book a try despite that though. It was surprisingly well written and had an original feel compared to numerous other alien sci-fi romances I've read. I enjoyed the characters and found the plot to be fast paced and fun. I will definitely check out more of this writers work.

It was okay. The prince was from a minor house that wasn't close to the power source and he had aligned with a Major house so he was told to take a human wife. He did and come to find out she was his mate but she was whinny because she didn't understand him and he didn't want to rape her so they got off to a bad start. Monsters played a part in this real and imagined. That was my take on it any way. Sort of like the rich vs the poor. LOL

When I'm in the mood for a light-hearted, sexy, not too deep read, I often turn to these interstellar/inter-species type stories. I'm honestly not expecting much from them except decent editing and steamy sex. This story delivers that. I have no complaints about the book or the author. It isn't anything special or different for the genre and it was a satisfying read but not amazing enough to hook me into following this author.

I completely adores this story!

It was well written and imaginative with the perfect mix of romance,humor and hot, juicy, steamy sex. I loved the way the characters develop by learning the language, laughing at their simple communication errors and the joy of seeing the Prince's people fall in love with his new Princess. I recommend this book and can't wait to read the next in this series!
