And Karter’d given up hope. He’d never matched with anyone until now. And now is just about the worst time ever for Karter’s mate to make an appearance. The Hive is making serious inroads in defeating the Coalition. Karter’s first duty is to pr ...more
As with the other Interstellar Bride books by Ms. Grace Goodwin, they read great as a continuing saga, but each book will read well as a stand-alone. But, if you have been a loyal fan, you were cheering for Commander Karter being matched with a mate—even if now he was unsure if that should even take place. Throw in a surprise from his past and a strong, determined woman from Earth, and you have an amazing story.
In the middle of a disaster in another sector, lo ...more
Holy hot Prillon Warriors … the throbbing hasn’t stopped (um… I meant to say, heart throbbing hasn’t stopped), since reading “The Commander’s Mate”, the latest installment in the “Interstellar Brides Series”! I read this episode in one sitting and never moved… OK, that’s a lie… I squirmed a little… OK, maybe I writhed a lot but trust me, Grace Goodwin really has a way with words! Professionally written, the narrative is incredibly fast-paced and flowed seamlessly ...more
I really loved this story from beginning to end.We loved that the story had a strong female character that would be able to stand up two domineering males both captain of their own fleets.
Erica we loved her from the onset of the story she was strong and opinionated and not a little women to be put in her place or in a corner and she was also a introvert accor ...more
Erica is a strong, feisty woman who is wholeheartedly committed to this mating. She knows wha ...more
“THE COMMANDER’S MATE”, Grace Goodwin’s newest novel and addition to her Interstellar Brides Series is absolutely phenomenal! I am always floored by Goodwin’s writing because no two of the “Brides” novels are the same. There are a couple of similarities. All of the books are enticing and compellingly complex with plot similarities in only a few ways. The end with a happily ever after, and the chemistry is – well . . . out of this world! OK, the themes incl ...more
Great Series With An Awesome Balance Between Drama & S€X¥ Times!!

Ohhh Yes! That's RIGHT, YOU Heard Correctly,
(To understand my review, I just want to put it out there, I read for story and could care less about the sexy times)

As with the Grace’s other books in this Interstellar Brides series there are quite a few 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥scenes written in her own special style. In addition there is also a really awesome story that makes this a great addition to the series.

The Commanders’ Mate is book fifteen in the Interstellar Brides Series. This is also the fifth book of the warriors from Priillon Prime. Like the books before in this series, Ms. Goodwin’s creativity in creating this whole universe, its galaxies, the different cultures and the evil that seeks to conquer it are both in-depth and awe-inspiring.

I nearly didn't download this book as after reading the blurb I wasn't sure it was really going to be my cup of tea having never really read inter galaxy type books before, but I'm so glad i did because I really enjoyed it.
Erica is sent to be a bride to the pallion commander and lands smack in the middle of a war zone.
Her 2 mates want to protect her and send her away and although they are strong commanders they didn't really bargain for the stubborn fiesty bride that landed ...more

In just two days Commander Karters life is irrevocably altered. In the midst of one of the worst Hive atrocities he is not only confronted with a long lost friend/brother, but the transporter gifts him with his unexpected mate.
As if that is not enough, the danger of an imminent Hive attack needs all his attention.
His newly arrived mate had a very different welcome in mind. Instead of being greeted joyfully, she arrives in the midst of the evacuation of wou ...more
I think, of all of her heroines so far, Erica is my favorite. I've loved all the heroines, but there's just something about Erica that is so fierce and determined. I think it's that she knows who she is and is comfortable with being who she is and is not afraid of going after what she wants and needs.
I've al ...more
So happy that Commander Karter got his happy ending in the end. Especially after telling Sarah Mills so many books ago to go and have what he couldn't 😢 (slightly paraphrased there i know). He became an instant favourite of mine. I loved Ronan and it was great to see some familiar faces in there as well. Erica was easy to like and tough as well - you have to be with these warriors and I thought she was just right for her mates. What a disaster if I had not liked her !!! Also inter ...more
Commander Karter has a lot on his plate dealing with the latest Hive problem. He is surprised when he is told that a bride has been matched to him. It is lucky that Ronan has come back from the dead to be his second. Ronan is now a Commander for the I.C. Erica is excit ...more
