I really enjoyed reading this story. I liked the outstanding world building, you get to see everything from both points of views, all the emotions, and the promise of a future with them.

When Earth was going to be attacked and plundered by the Suhlik, the Mahdfel warrior race came to the rescue. They made an agreement with Earth that they will continue to protect Earth from the Suhlik in exchange for brides. So every childless, single, health female will be tested for genetic compatib

The Suhlik meant to enslave Earth and rob her of her resources. Only the Mahdfel warriors stood against them to protect Earth. In return for their help, the Earth government agreed that every childless, single, healthy woman would be tested for genetic compatibility for marriage with a Mahdfel warrior and, if matched, would be instantly teleported away to her new mate – wherever he was located.

Olivia Griffin is a medical student and, when she is tested for compatibility, she is match

This is a story of a human who is forced by an agreement between her government and the aliens who saved earth, to become a mate to an alien across the universe. Olivia was a med student on earth when she came up for random genetic testing to see if she was a match to an alien. She was picked up without warning to go take the test. Within moments she learned she was a match. Immediately she is processed and put into a transporter and sent to another planet. No time to say goodbye or anything. He ...more

This is a cute story with two cute characters. While not a full sugar overload it did have a certain saccharin sweetness to it.

Olivia is single and any single childbearing women can be matched to a Mahdfel warrior. She is studying to be a doctor and if she really wanted to have a different outcome she could have made a fake marriage to get her out of the matching. A small note when you are in medical school and are out seeing patients with another Dr. you are referred to as Dr. not as a young w

After Earth was attacked by an alien race called the Suhlik, releasing a noxious gas which decades later the people of Earth are still feeling the effects of, the Mahdfel came to our rescue. Their help came with a price – allow a genetic test to see if any of the single fertile female humans are a match for the warriors.
Olivia has managed to dodge the testing so far and is training to be a doctor, but then her luck runs out and she is tested and is a match. She is immediately sent to be taken t

It has been quite a while since I’ve read such an enjoyable, entertaining alien romance & it is a splendid start to a new series. The story-line & plot is well-written & interesting with some unconventional circumstances, the world building is outstanding. The characters are well-developed & likable, they portray realistic emotions according to the situation they currently find themselves in.

Fast-paced adventure in outer space from the word go!🚀

🚀😲😉 A rollicking, danger-filled adventure romance, this story was full of breathless action sequences from the moment human heroine/doctor-in-training Olivia is zipped off to her new Mahdfel mate's duty station on a desolate mining colony planet. The hero is a giant pussycat with his new mate, seasoned pilot and warrior when the arch enemy Suhlik lizard troops attack and threaten his new-found happiness.

Well written exciting story full of action, danger and sizzling chemistry

I really enjoyed this series opener, showcasing a gal that gets matched to an alien and resents it like crazy. She has plans for her life and this does not even factor in to any of them! So yeah, expect angst and drama, some fab suspense, danger and action, but also a super sweet and patient alien guy that is so thankful to be matched that you can't help but love him. And neither can our gal ;) This was such a f

Dnf - no plot, no tension, SO Boring

Very boring. Couldn't make myself read past 59%. Synopsis - aliens can't have girls, alien mates with dna-matched Earth woman, alien loves woman before meeting her, woman thinks she will be miserable, woman meets alien and almost immediately falls in line with the program when she finds out she can visit her family and have career, woman falls in love within 3 days, minor fights with second alien creatures. The end. No drama, no angst, no plot. Just a borin

Her hot alpha alien can't wait for her to get there but she isn't so excited to be going as her life got turned upside down. Here is where a lot of danger and adventure ...more

I want to say a few words because I really loved this story by Sonia Nova. Kraev had just the right amount of everything. Kraev is a worthy male and warrior who protects his mate with excellence. He’s also one of the sweetest Mahdfel warriors I’ve read. Olivia was training to be a doctor on earth and wanted nothing to do with the mate program. She is matched to Kraev and arrives in a war zone. I loved all of the action and how it caused Olivia to bond with Kraev that much faster. Kraev’s story h ...more
This sci-fi romance had plenty of action and thrills, but what really sets it apart is what a sweet, lovable teddy bear the hero was. Our heroine was scared and pessimistic about what her life would be like after being forcibly teleported to her genetic match, but the hero's supportive, sweet attitude, along with his heroic protectiveness, won our heroine over in short order. He also won this reader over in short order! I think this would be a great story to read on a hard day or a sick day! Sho ...more

I have a bit of a crush....on a horned, blue alien. I've not read any other books by Sonia Nova, but I think she has a new fan. Kraev is passionate, protective, and all-in from the moment he sets eyes on his mate. Olivia is less so, afraid of what she's heard, afraid she'll not see her family, afraid of the unknown. The story is well paced, has some twists and turns, and is really well written. I really enjoyed this first book in the Warriors of Rae series.

An alien romance in the stars. Olivia is studying to be a doctor. But her future changes as soon as the soldiers walk into the hospital. She’s been called to see if she is a match. Kraev is an alien who just found out his match was found. He couldn’t be happier. But the threat of the Suhlik attacking becomes very real. Olivia’s character is smart and she is able to adapt very easily. Kraev is very sweet and would do anything for his female. Expect plenty of sweet romance and some dangerous fight ...more

This is a good story. The heroine is a medical student forced to give up her schooling and become a bride due to the pact between Earth and the Mahdfel warriors who saved and protect Earth. She is sent to a planet where the Sulath are unexpectedly attacking. Kraev saves her just in time but they Crash and must learn to accept each other. I will not give anymore spoilers. I recommend reading this for a sweet, alien read.

I liked the planetary adventure, but it was kind of too short. The world, aliens were interesting for a first book, but according to me the relationship came as too flat and i could not get the attraction on her side. No character development and illogical actions really made me rate it like this. I do loved the author other series, but this one can not compete with it.

This story is about Olivia and Kraev. Their romance was romantic, had plenty of action and a sweet and sexy alien warrior. It seems that Olivia wasn't quick to like all that was happening to her when she was transported to Kraev but soon learned to love him. I love this series and can't wait for the next book to come out. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Loved the book it was great, the story was well written and the characters are interesting. Kraev has wanted a big family and wondering if he was ever going to have a bride. Olivia is wanting to become a doctor, she is half way there when she is teleported to her future husband. The chemistry is hot.

Olivia is a medical student, who gets matched, much to her disgust! She arrives at his location in the middle of a Suhlik attack! (they are the bad guys trying to rule destroy everything) Kraev is so happy to be matched. Their great escape ends in failure.....

Is good or bad? Do they ever get their HEA?

I loved this book and totally recommend reading it!

Really Well Written Sci-Fi Romance

I've always loved sci-fi and romance novels but I rarely like sci-fi romance novels for some reason. I decided to take a chance on this one as it sounded like an interesting premiss. I'm really glad I did. The book was well written. The love story very believable and relatable even if it was partly about aliens.

This is an excellent way to start a new series. The storyline was intriguing and filled with action that kept me engrossed. The author weaved in suspense, a little humor, some drama, and a great romance between Olivia and Kraev that kept you wondering if they would come out together in the end.
