I really enjoyed this story. The entire series is fascinating, as is the world that KR has created with her Detyen’s.
One of the biggest things in Science fiction romance that really annoys me is that all too many of them seem to make women’s situation in life so much worse than we have it now, it’s like authors writing about the future see us go from fighting for equality to completely giving up our rights and going back to the middle ages.
Which is another reason I LOVE Kate Rudolph’s work, sh

Listen to the universe
This author always manages to put her Detyen warriors where they need to be before they reach their fatal hour, and I love it. This book is a fantastic addition to the series. The author adds in an orphaned Naomi who can see everything except for what is right in front of her. Shayn and Naomi end up being exactly where they need to be to save each other and find their HEA. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

Shayn is only half-Detyan and he and his brothers are anxious to know if they will have to pay the Denya-price - dying at 30, if unmated. To try and answer this question Shayn goes to a research centre, where he meets Naomi. Naomi has psychic powers that have be studied by the centre for years and hadn't realised how her life is controlled and abused by the scientists at the centre. However, reality comes with a bang and Shayn and Naomi decide to escape the centre together.

The book starts with Naomi restrained on a table, and it just goes crazy from there. I read this book rather quickly, lots of drama, heart-pounding moments in this book. The Hero, Shayn is a swoon-worthy guy and I enjoyed the interactions with Naomi and his brothers. I would recommend this book. The only reason it isn't a five-star book is that Naomi "bought into" the fated mate thing I thought a little easy. Also, I would have liked to see a little more closure with the "bad guy" in this book.

This is the best one yet. The storyline and the characters were so well written and developed in a way to keep the reader engrossed. Their emotions, personalities, and interactions were amazing.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was my first book by this author so hence the first in this series that I have read. I love a good alien read and this seems to fit the bill, a very enjoyable read, plenty of drama/suspense and passion. This was easily read as a standalone, not having read any of the others, which didn't matter, you do get to meet some of Shayn's brothers but it is not necessary to have the backstory to understand what is going on.

Wow! This really packed a punch with Naomi as a girl who was totally a brainwashed super psychic. Shayn was super adorable. I couldn’t help but to like both of them. I liked the extra twist of Shayn and his brothers being only have Detyen and not knowing if they had limited time. There was plenty of action and space adventure to enjoy.

I read all the books so far in this series and in that whole time there was never one of them that I didn’t like and this latest book is so good. Naomi was left as an orphan after her parents died and was taken in by Morgyn a scientist that works for Sola Corp that are studying and looking for ways to enhance her abilities because she is a psychic and very talented and worth a lot them so when she gets a vision that her life is in danger from the scientist and a blue alien man saves her she jump ...more

Shayn is book 7 in the Mated to the Alien series, and it's been a while since we've been in this series (we took a detour into the lives of the Detyen Warriors). The book follows closely behind the rest of the series, but as with most of them (aside from Krayter and Kayleb) you don't have to read any of the others to enjoy this book. All of them are great, so I definitely say you should give them a go!

In Shayn we meet a cadre of aliens who are only half Detyen, their other half being Oscavian (t

Shayn is a Detyen half breed. His father was Detyen and his mother was Oscavian. What will that mean for Shayn and his two brothers in terms of the Detyen Price or will they even have a Denya (fated mate)? Will they be immune to the price of death at the age of thirty if they are not mated to their Denya or will their half breed biology void this curse. Searching for answers, Shayn arranges a meeting with Sola Corp, a research facility in Oscavia, hoping the scientists and doctors there can help ...more

More sexy Detyen derring-do

When you're a Detyen, you don't have a biological clock. You have a time bomb - and if you don 't mate by age thirty, it goes off, and you're dead. But Shayne and his brothers are half-Oscavian (Hey. It happens.) Does that mean they must pay the Denya price? Shayn, the eldest, leaves Honora Station to search for answers. He ends up at an Oscavian corporate research facility, but before he can get his answers, he finds his denya! But she's some kind of surgically induce

Finding his fated mate!

Shayn was a hybrid with a Detyen father and a Oscarvian mother. Since his father and mother were not fated mates, his father died at the age of thirty and he hopes that he and his brothers will escape the same fate. In his search to find answers he travels to the renown "Sola Medical Research Facility" in the hope that they can give him and answer he wants. Instead her finds his fated mate Naomi.

This is such a great new addition to this series. As a hybrid with an Oscavian mother and a Detyan father who was not his fathers true mate Shayn and his brothers have no idea if they will still have to pay the Detyan price. If Detyens don't find their true mate by the age of 30 they die. In search of answers he heads to a medical center where he meets his true mate Naomi she has been kept sheltered and tested on for over 15 years. When he sees she in danger from the very people that "raised" he ...more

another great book by Kate Rudolph. this book is about 2 completely different ppl, different species and one who has been an unwitting prisoner to be experimented on most of her life. the other is desperate to find answers that affect not only his life and possible early death but those of his 2 brothers as well.
story line is well written, cohesive and nicely paced. u don't lose interest because there are no boring parts. the end for me kind of came a bit abruptly and might have been able to be

Add one Detyen/Oscavian Hybrid Alpha to one running scared Psychic human and et voila another fab book in the Mated to the Alien series!

Shayn is the perfect mix of Alpha hero with a good dollop of respect for his Denya. Naomi may be psychic but she still can't see the wood for the trees when it comes to sorting out who she is in most danger from!

All the sleekitness of the baddies (brilliant home grown word, I must use it more often when describing bad guys!) really made my blood boil, using so

Well written fast paced story full of action, danger and sizzling chemistry

This is another fab read for the series and I love how it followed it's own path, making for a unique and totally engaging story. Shayn and Naomi end up at the same research centre and once they meet, all bets are off! They sneak away but the long arm of the research company keeps reaching out for them. It'll take luck, family and determination to try and get out of their clutches and off for an HEA. It was an exciting re

This is the seventh book in this series. I have read and enjoyed all the books.
The love between Shayn and Naomi is so romantic.
I started to read this book SHAYN in the early evening and couldn't put it down I sat up and read the whole book to the end. Wow what an adventure. So love these books and can't wait till the next book. If you love science fiction/fantasy then you will also love this series.

This is the 7th book in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone. Shayn is only half Detyen but does he still share their fate? When he goes in search of answers, he finds his denya/mate. Naomi was orphaned as a child and raised by scientist. She has special gifts and when she realized she is being used she decides to run away with Shayn. Fast-paced read with plenty of drama and lots of steam. The chemistry between the characters is steamy and the story draws you in from beginning to end. ...more

This series just keeps getting better. Shane and Naomi meet in the unlikeliest of places, but there is no denying their instantaneous attraction. From then on there is nothing but trouble following them. Warning, do not start this book in the evening unless you plan to stay up all night.

The heroine of the book is Naomi, a young woman living at the Sola Corp compound on Oscavia, a planet on the edge of the empire. Naomi’s parents were both killed when she was 12 and she was left alone, the only human among the purple hued Oscavians. Humans were considered to be exotic on this side of the galaxy, so Dr. Morgyn Pitner took Naomi under her wing and had her living on the Sola Corp compound where she was tested and experimental surgeries were performed, generally on her her brain, in ...more

For me this book was a bit of a bland predictable read. Maybe it was the pacing that made it seem like a long short read, I just felt meh about it.

Naomi has been under the “care” of Dr. Morgyn Pitner for 14 years. I use that term loosely as the majority of doctors in this series are really pretty scary callous SOB’s and this doctor is no different.

My take on Naomi is that she’s either very naïve, un-inquisitive, or just a touch stupid but never in the 14 years since she’s been under the doctor’

I seem to do this quite often 😳 this is my first time reading anything from this series and I can say from experience it can be read as a stand-alone though it did leave me curious about the previous books.

I found Shayn to be a somewhat docile(?) male lead. Oh, he has the Alpha gene when it comes to his denya and he has a secret weapon to back up his growl. But at times he seemed a bit complacent? Not even sure if that's the right descriptor. He is the caregiver, the careful one and it showed i

Shayn NaZade, like his brothers, is half Detyen / half Oscavian. He is not sure if being only half-Detyen makes him susceptible to the Detyen fate where if he hasn’t found his denya (mate) by his 30th birthday, he will die or have to become soulless. So he goes to a research facility on Oscavia to find out if they know. He meets Naomi Beck, a psychic who was orphaned and taken to the facility for continual testing and experimenting on her abilities for almost 15 years. Strangely, she never saw h ...more

He goes to an Oscavian corporate research facility but before he finds answers he finds his mate, his denya. Naomi has been at that facility since she was orphaned years ago. She is a test lab rat so the corporation isn't about to let her go. This is where Shayn shows you how devious, determined, and dedicated to get his mate out of that facility. His baby brother ...more
