First Mate’s Accidental Wife by Eve Langlais

Science fiction romance on the humorous side. First in a series although it is littered with references to characters in other series by the same author. It had me looking a few up a couple of times to confirm. You don’t need to have read any of the others to fully enjoy this adventure into space.

Filled with wry humorous remarks on earth customs, norms or commercial products.

I read both audible and ebook. I'll go ahead and put both reviews here.

This doesnt have the same feel as her earlier work that I enjoy. Like her Lion's Pride and Kodiak Point and a couple other series that were earlier. I have read some of her more recent and she's probably shifted a little in her writing and has changed it up a little. We just get so used to how an author writes and we expect it all the time. They change their styles like we change genres I am sure. I'll be honest and say

I read Eve Langlais for the laughs. Not because I want a complex plot or an intense love story. Just the laughs. In The First Mate’s Accidental Wife, there are plenty of fish/squid/sushi jokes about the Kanishqui, the alien race the heroine Mishi is rescued from. Also, believe it or not, the universe is crazy for chocolate, which I find to be both silly and obvious. But the banter between Mishi and First Mate rescuer Damon, was the best. They start off antagonizing each other and end up merely i ...more

This uses a interesting trope. The rescue is in danger of failing but if they marry all will work out. Michi is ready to be rescued and eager to marry. Damon on the other hand knows he does not want to be married. It was fun to watch the two interact. The dialog keeps the fun going. I listened to this as an audio book and through the narrator missed playing up the humor. I did enjoy seeing Michi and Damon and liked the hint about the next book that showed up at the end.

Quick enjoyable read. I read it pretty quick while the power was out in my house and I desperately needed entertainment...Eve didn't disappoint :)
This is a fast paced read about a feisty Princess and a reluctant pirate. Very enjoyable.

At first I thought it was just going to be a variation on the same story – girl stows away on space ship, is discovered, fights with the crew, falls in love with a member of the crew, etc. There’s nothing wrong with those stories, and I highly enjoy them - but Eve Langlais has managed to add a new twist!!

Damon accompanies his Captain on a visit to another ship. His job is to locate and retrieve a kidnapped female. Michonne is the daughter of a crime lord, and the Captain has been hired to rescu

well... Ok then.

I confess, there is a trope that is often used in futuristic/fantasy/time travel sorts where the "H"(and I use that term loosely), through chicanery gets the h in a position where she's considered married to him and thus subject to his laws, such as they are, and I hate it. Because every damned time it happens, the h is forced to give up everything she knows and is expected to just...get over it...because he's so hawt. (eyeroll).

And while I'm not in favor of the reverse happening

Michonne or Michi has been kidnapped and the “Gypsy Moth” has been sent to go rescue her. Damon is the First Mate of the Gypsy Moth and it’s his job to find and bring her back. But on the way rescuing her things take a slight turn. Let me start off by saying the book is like a combination of “Princess Bride meets Shrek.” LOL You have a damsel in distress and a hero. But with both stories, it is never as it seems.

Damon does not want a wife. He enjoys being the First Mate and a bit of a pirate. A

This is the first space odyssey romance I’ve read by Eve, but as usual I’m glad I started this series. I listened the audio versions and they were short novellas. You won’t miss the fact that they aren’t long epic novels.

The first book is a great introduction to the Gypsy Moth crew, ship, and missions. I really like how the marriage of convenience comes about. This one is full of laughs as they try to maneuver t

The first book from her new series, Gypsy Moth, First Mate's Accidental Wife is exactly what I've come to expect from Eve Langlais. A fast paced sci-fi romance with lovable characters and hilariously crazy situations.

In this story, First Mate Damon and his captain of the Gyspy Moth are hired to rescue a wealthy heiress from a tentacle aliens. However, one thing leads to another and Damon finds himself married to this heiress. Michonne has been waiting to be abducted ever since she can recall bu
Gypsy Moth Book One.

Michonne has been kidnapped by a Kanishqui and will soon be married to him. Damon is on a mission to free the daughter of his captain's friend, but when he finds Michonne they are trapped. Thinking quickly, Michi performs the mating ceremony of her people without informing Damon. Back on his ship, Damon is resistant to the change in his status and his relationship with this stranger. However, seeing her relationship with his shipmates quickly changes his mind.

Surprise Marriage

When a rescue turns desperate and Damon finds the only way out is to pretend he's married to the woman he was tasked with to rescue, things aren't as cut and dried as he thinks. In his haste to free Michi from her unwanted betrothed, he repeats a line she asks him to say, and unbeknownst to him when she bites his bottom lip, he is now married to her for real according to Dkar tradition. The story is filled with emotional turmoil, exciting rescues, sexy encounters and an enormous

Fast, funny, and fabulous e-vacay!

I just enjoyed the most charmingly funny SF romance - First Mate's Accidental Wife by Eve Langlais. I haven't chuckled and giggled like this in a long time. Damon is a hero cast in the Harrison Ford/Han Solo mold, while Michonne is just perfect as the innocent little venus fly trap that attracts hm into inescapable peril. And has him loving it! This is a quick afternoon's read, a delightful break from the daily grind, and a better tonic than anything ever poured

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this story. I enjoyed Michonne. She could not fathom how all her sisters found amazing males but she is reduced to having someone who just seems so.. average. Damon was not trying to marry anyone and Michonne is someone that he refuses to accept. I loved their banter and I enjoyed all of the shenanigans that they got into. I cannot wait to see what happens with the Cyborg in The Cyborg's Stowaway: In the Stars Romance.

So many overplayed cliches!

The alpha H is a huge rake: “stuck with one vagina forever. It seemed worse in some respects than a prison sentence.”

The h is a very sheltered virgin: “I am ready for my deflowering!”

The world building felt forced, and the romance was just weird.

I am a huge fan of space suspense / romance novels, which is the only reason I am giving a 3 and not a 2. I’m holding out hope that the world/galaxy that was portrayed here gets a worthy romance novel in future EL books.

Damon is everything you love about Han Solo, Starlord, and Lone Starr… except that he’s not the captain of his own ship, a shortcoming that Michi points out. Even so, he’s sexy, confident, funny and competent, and I love every time he referes to the mob boss’ daughter as “princess”.

The book was a quick read, but even so there was time to introduce us to lots of different species and a few very interesting settings. Langlais definitely transported me away on a fun sci-fi adventure, while deliveri

The book was cute and entertaining. Damon is sent by the captain to rescue Michonne while he distracted the people who kidnapped her. They had issues as they tried to escape. Michonne then decided to "help" by making him her husband. This marriage is irreversible unless by his death. Follow along with the antics theses participate in as he tries to figure out how to annul the marriage while she tries to get him to stay. She also is a princess so she doesn't obey very well.

Fun, fast paced and entertaining. I really enjoyed how the leads in this book came together. Somehow Eve manages to make highly entertaining romances that keep me turning the page to see what comes next. I liked that there were references to other books including Milhail and Rafe, cyborgs and other kidnapping aliens. I feel like I can always count on something humorous and engaging when I read books by Eve Langlais and this book delivers. Glad that there will be more to come in this series.

Damon was just supposed to rescue a damsel in distress, kidnaped and held at ransom. Instead he somehow ends up married to Michi.

I short story and a wonderful start to this new series by Ms Langlais. A Sci-Fi adventure I devoured. The bad boy and the prissy little princess these two test each other at every turn, arguing and disagreeing for the most part. The saying “there’s a fine line between love and hate” is true for this story.

First Mate's Accidental Wife :In The Stars Romance(GypsyMoth Book 1) by Eve LANGAIS

A cute novella by Eve LANGAIS only complaint is that it's way to short ,I was thought enjoying reading the book and it seemed over before u knew it. Hopefully the next addition to the series ,Cyborgs Stow away will be longer. So enjoy Eve's wonderful sense of humor and colorful characters!!!

Not my favorite.

This is Eve Langlais diet version. Serious they are married in 3 sentences of meeting each other and in love 1/2 a day later. Little dialogue. Minor society/world building. This is what you read when you are desperate. I will definitely go find some real Eve Langlais to erase this from my mind.

A cute, fast read.

Michi and Damon have a funny story. She is privileged and seems kind of loopy, but she knows what she wants. Damon. For his part, Damon fights the inevitable, and their interactions are funny. I loved this story because of the characters but also because of the unique world building and the story that reads so fluidly. It was fun, give it a shot!
