Now that Zandia has been reclaimed it's time for rebuilding both the world and its population. But there's still the problem of too many males and not enough females. So Ms. Rose is turning to the now trending genre of reverse harem. The transition was well done and it let me switch smoothly to the new series.

The story focuses mostly on Riya's fears of what it would mean to disappoint the zandians which is a natural fear for a woman who's been a slave all her life and sentenced to death once fo
Sweet and Salty Reviews by DD
This is referred to as book 1 however I had the continued feeling that I was missing something.

World was loosely built. MCs did not have any strong or notable characteristics. I felt as if I did not know them. I’m good with a reverse harem but I need a story. Main focus here was breeding with a little dash is storyline here or there.

If you are looking for strictly naughtiness then you’ll like this one.

Happy reading! DD 💕

A very different and unusual story with great storyline and plot. It is well written and the use of words brings a lot of emotions up in the reader.
A story about a woman that was a slave but was mated to three cousins. She is their world but she keeps a secret from them. That tears her apart.
The story has passion, lies, secrets, trust, honesty, twists, emotional ups and downs in it.
I like it is written in multiple POV, which gives the reader both the thoughts and feelings of the main characters

WOW, you did it again. Once again, you made me cry. This is why the series is so good. If you dont know about Riya, let me refresh. Riya was a slave. She was rescued and brought along with other slaves from everywhere to Zandia. She is close friends with Lily. She doesn't believe she is worthy of any Zandian male. She can't have children due to the abuse she suffered. When Zandia is finally freed, the King decrees that there will be changes. That since there are so few human females, Zandian's c ...more

Now that the Zandians have regained their home planet, they need to protect it from future invasion. This means that they need more Zandians and how better to get more Zandians than to start a re-population program. But since women are scarce, the King has decreed that multiple men can team up with one woman and you have the start of this reverse harem story. Once again Renee Rose has created a fantastic story that you will have trouble putting down until you finish. With robust world-building, ...more

I'm usually not a fan of reverse harem stories, but this one is spectacular! This is full of passion, heartache, and love between three alien men and one human female which make for HOT scenes! But Riya has been deceiving Jax, Tarren and Ronan. Will they be able to forgive her once her secret is revealed.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love romance but Sci-Fi has never been my go to genre. That being said, I am always open minded and willing try a new adventure in romance with a “new to me” author, especially if it is co-written by one of my all time favorite authors. So I decided that I needed to dive into Night of the Zandians and try out Renee Rose's writing while basking in Alexis Alvarez's talent once again while writing as Rebel West . It wasn't long and they had me completely riveted to ...more
Yay! More Zandians! Renee Rose brought her Zandians out to play for the Night of... Reverse Harem series. I hope that it's going to be the start of a new spin-off series from the original books, because I love the Zandians. Those giant, horned, purple aliens have a special place in my heart. Renee invited along Rebel West to help her with this story and it was great.

Night of the Zandians is a deliciously sexy read that leaves you begging for your own alien mates! Zandians have finally taken their planet back with the help of some slave humans. (All humans have become slaves). The king puts a re-population plan down and the human females must mate with a group of Zandians. Riya is terrified of this, not only was she abused as a slave she was left infertile from the abuse. Tarren, Ronan, and Jax have chosen her as their mate, she hides the fact she's infertil ...more

The Zandians have regained their planet and now they need to rebuild and repopulate. King Zander has decreed that due to the lack of females, two to five HOT, Sexy Zandian males can claim one female and be granted land to homestead and farm. And the fun begins…….
Riya has known little joy in her life and has a BIG secret that if discovered may keep her from being claimed. Tarren, Jax and Ronan are cousins and they want her!
The chemistry is electric and so HOT between them!!! Throughout the story

The Zandians series gets better with every book! Love shines on every page of "Night of the Zandians". The emotions are a big bite of real life, and the characters jump off the page to make you cry, laugh, and love with them.

Riya has survived a brutal past as a slave, only to be thrust into a war, and a mating with three huge Zandians. Her first foray into freedom is done with the support and stress of her three new mates, Tarren, Jax, and Ronan. They're dominant, but they're also loving, carin

“Night of the Zandians” is the first of what I hope are many stories written by the writing duo of Renee Rose and Rebel West. If you don’t know who the Zandians are, then get yourself over to THAT series and get caught up. I’ll wait. Ready? Okay, it’s time for a reverse harem romance with sexy purple warriors with horns that are a direct link to…uh huh. But you knew that already since you know who the Zandians are. What’s that?

Riya, Tarren, Jax and Ronan, what a foursome! I loved these characters, they are all special and unique. Riya is the human mate to three Zandians and she's keeping a HUGE secret. Jax is the diplomat, Tarren the possessive alpha and Ronan is the family jokester. I loved the plot and the writing. I especially loved Riya trying to prove her worth (because who among us hasn't done that at some point in their life), when it was absolutely intrinsic to who she is.

I love this series and the Zandian men. They have taken their planet back and need to mate and Tarren , Ronan and Jax who are cousins have their eyes set on the sassy feisty Riya who holds a deep secret for so long I really feel for her and we all know Zandians do not lie and is not tolerated. I really liked how they were all different in their attitude and how they treated Riya and the teasing was super hot and you get some laughs in there to but when it comes down to their mate they were fierc ...more

Another Zandian masterpiece!! Ms. Rose along with Ms. West bring us an emotional and totally sexy Zandian bride book. I love the premise of this book. It was set up for angst, miscommunication, and tension- all the things that make books more interesting. The Zandian mates were delicious- all different but just as sexy in their own way. I loved Reyna- so amazingly smart and giving but vulnerable. This is definitely a sizzling-hot-grab-you-by-the-heart-five-star read!

MULTIPLE Zandian Warriors! And I was in love with the first series- now we get a group of them in this spinoff bride series. I’m all aflutter and aglow in sexy warrior overload from cousins Tarren, Jax, and Ronan.
Riya is the lucky female to mate these three, and I really enjoyed her story. Her contribution to fixing Zandia through knowledge and skills had me - and ok, her mates too ;) - so proud of her.
The conflict creating tension in this story was well done and well presented so that I loved

A beautiful, emotional and very steamy read. Riya's history is just heartbreaking and her struggle with her feelings of being unworthy of her mates and the lengths she goes to try to prove that she is will just totally crush you. Jax, Tarren, & Ronan are of course, very sexy, protective and have no doubt about who they want for their mate. Well written, superbly entertaining and a pure pleasure to read. I'm posting a completely honest, voluntary review after reading this book. ...more

4 1/2 Stars!

4 1/2 Stars! A great addition to the Zandian series. Please make sure you have read all 7 of the Zandian stories before starting the Zandian Brides series, otherwise there will be serious spoilers.

I won't provide a lot of details, but if you have not read the other stories, please do not read any further, unless you want an idea of what happens.

This is the story of Riya and her three mates: Ronan, Tarrien, and Jax. At the end of the 7th book, they were able to recapture Zandia afte

This is my favourite Zandian book so far, it had such emotional depth and we really got to know Riya as a character. There was such love and caring shown to her, by Ronan, Jax and Tarren, that it felt much more a relationship between equals than in previous books. That isn't to say that there weren't some hot punishment scenes, but they were very consensual and really well written.

I liked all four characters, they each brought something special to both the relationship and the book. There are pl

This is the first book of the Zandians that I have read, and I was very impressed. Having found that this is related to other books did not make me feel that I was missing anything. The story does go into a bit of the past and explain things so that the story flowed very well. The premise of the story revolves around the Zandians taking back their planet and now needing to repopulate their people. The problem is that there are not enough Zandian women, so the human women that are aiding them are ...more

This is like a spin off from the Zandian Masters series, which can quite easily be read as a standalone as this is the first book on their Zandian home planet - this is a great place to start if you haven't read any of the others - for me this has been one of the best books of any of the Zandians so far!!

The repopulation of Zandia begins!

And there is a rush for the few women rescued from the prison pods. As there are not many of them, Zandian males have to group together to form families and get a land grant to re-grow flora and young.
But there is one female that has been so deeply wounded that she finds herself fleeing from three cousins that have chosen her as their mate. Afraid, but intrigued by their interest, she decides to keep her secret hidden. Their claiming happens fast and furious, an

So far, I've enjoyed all of the Zandian books. This one was no different. I loved the guys, especially Tarren. Something about him being the biggest and gruffest endeared him to me.

I was so sad that Riya lived with such fear. I kept thinking to myself, why hasn't Lamira told Zander how what he's saying may sound to some of the human females. It made the book more interesting, but I hated seeing her so scared, especially knowing that she'd lived her entire life in fear.

I really enjoyed this book. For me the trick of a Good Reverse Harem book is that you have characters who are well fleshed out so there are well recognised individual characters. And the main female character has a special relationship with each of the man.

This book had all that. Jax, Tarren, & Ronan made me laugh a lot. they were wonderful character and I loved how they treated Riya. they were so proud of her intelligence and her accomplishments and the way she brought life, love and warth with
The Zandian stories have WAY too much sex to suit me. It's kind of like BDSM but not. Consent for the "punishing" is dubious. The humans are told they are not slaves yet in the bedroom they sure are treated that way. The husbands really do need a manual on understanding human psychology. Humans have been oppressed slaves for millennia and don't know what to expect from their new husbands/masters. Imagine that you were just given a freed slave as a wife. Try to think how she would think. Don't wr ...more

This was the first book that I’ve read by this author duet and in this series and I really liked it. It was erotic, and sweet. This is a reverse harem type story with one woman, and three men. I loved that and they were able to really work out a system so to speak. There was some sadness and angst but it wasn’t super overbearing. There’s really not a whole lot I can say with out spoiling the plot line, or the relationship between the characters but I will say that I do plan to read more in the s ...more
