The Warrior's Mate
Five years ago, I was abducted by aliens….
After a harrowing escape from an alien research facility, I found myself in the care and protection of an alien species called the Akrellians, but I didn't trust my instantaneous attraction to the commander of the ship. After all, I had no idea what the evil Iriduans had done to me, so I didn't know if my feelings were even
Theresa was one of the women rescued in book 1. Joanie settled with her kraken, Claire had her scorpion, Cass was found by her serpent, Theresa and Tarin decided to go back home. But longing for home and readapting to a place you no longer fit in with are 2 different things. Especially when part of your heart was left dancing in the stars. Akrellians may be vaguely reptilian but they are far from cold. Tirel let Theresa go because of his honor. But honor isn't love and is a cold repla ...more
If you cast your mind back to book 1 of this series, The Scorpion's Mate, then Theresa and Tirel are familiar characters. Theresa was one of the women who was saved alongside the heroine...but opted to go home to earth. Tirel was the commander of the ship they were on when they were rescue ...more
In other words, Theresa isn't in the best mental place when we first catch up with her. As much as she loves her fa ...more

I was excited for another book in this series but was let down.
I liked the point of views from the main characters but the writing was mostly telling with some dialogue inbetween. It didn't engage me with the characters even though what was happening was supposed to be interesting. The best parts were in the moment.
Hope the next one improves!
Read in KU, typos
I enjoyed Tirel's character when we were first introduced to him and I'm happy he got his HEA but lot of these stories don't really make sense to me yet a lot of it was very predictable. Mainly speaking about Halian I knew that Hunter and Halian were double crossing the girls from the very beginning especially when they found Hunter with the knife in his already damaged eye, I mean really if Halian was really trying to get at Hunter don't u think he would take out his last goo ...more

Then, an alien shows up and tells Theresa that Tirel is in danger and she is the only one who can find him. So, on goes Theresa and her best friend. She finds and rescues him. Then they realized tha ...more
This is well-written series about aliens whom actually look like aliens. The books have it all; action, romance and characters and worlds that are so intriguing they suck you in wanting more. And per Ms. Trombley's parting words, at the end of this book, there should be at least 3 more books in this series that I will look forward to reading
A beautiful love story that was well-written and holds your attention from beginning to end. It has everything you want in a romance about aliens with enough action and drama to keep you on your toes with awesome characters? l'm so glad that you have more books to come beause it's an awesome series and I enjoy reading them. Definitely a must buy and waiting anxiously for the next book.
I have read everyone of the books By this author and let me tell you this you will become addicted! There’s a lot of silliness lots of fun and laughs as well as hot romance and I love all the beautiful details in the space setting it really makes you feel that you’re part of the New World. I cannot wait to read the next book in her series and let me tell you it is only getting better this is definitely a must read series!
As I was hoping this was Hunter’s story , I was glad to see The Prime Commander get his story. Theresa is a wonderful mate and leader. I still don’t like or trust Hailin, but I’ll wait to pass judgement until his book. But he is a jerk. Ava’s book is still the one I can’t wait to read after reading the DeadFall series.
I'm almost tempted to say that this is the best one yet, but Ive loved all of them. The bond that Theresa and Tirel share is such a beautifully spiritual bond that's only theirs. And I think that it's wonderful that it can be felt by every one of his kind in their presence. This series leaves you desperately craving the next. I can't wait for Hunter's Book.
I loved Hunter and his freaky ship. Hope that the next batch of mates will be less self conscious and more secure without all the reassurances and hand holding. Seems it’s a trend for the H to be BBW with body image issues drives me nuts.
I didn’t like how foolish Theresa had been in the past but I loved how she was quick and willing to straighten things out and make things right.
Honestly I loved the story but what I hated was the lack of communication and self loathing on the H’s part.
He drove me around the bend w/his lack of communication and letting the heroine just jump to her own conclusions.
And while I kinda love how things ended up between them, a HATED how passive aggressive things were back at the H’s ...more
