So freaking good. Motok is an alien warrior who has a mission to find and save human women being kidnapped and enslaved. Kerra is a human minding her own business on Earth waiting for her sister, Kacie, to come back from space. Motok saves Kerra from being kidnapped and they fall for each other fast. Theres lots of action and twists. I really enjoyed it. Cant wait for the next book.

Wow, I will admit that I absolutely enjoyed reading this excellent & amazingly, suspenseful Sci-Fi alien romance that has some dark undertones. The plot is well-written & full of intrigue. The world building & scene description are excellent. The well-developed characters are quite unique with strong-willed personalities & some of them have a determination to succeed at any cost, they react with devastating consequences to the enemies and/or the current situation they find ...more

Holy Veet what a story! Mot and Kerras story had taken us on an outer space adventure filled with non stop action and romance. These Braxtharian Warriors are men that you want to stay on the good side of thats for sure and when they vow to protect you.. incredible the lengths they will go. I dont read many alien romances but this story kept me wanting more and never putting my kindle down. Im excited to see what book two has for us in the future. ...more

I'm not usually a fan of alien books, however this one was a good read. It was exciting, action-packed, and surprising.

Motok has been given a mission to find all human women who have been taken and sold by the slavers who bear the mark of the Vindar on their hands. When he is shown a video of a female who is raped and murdered by the slavers Motok is now on a mission to find all earth women who are in captivity and kill their slavers and return the women to Vindar. If he doesnt, their planet is under threat.

Motok finds no women in captivity and when they get close to finding three life forms, the slavers kill

Vindicator was an amazing short read with tons of action and angst. What's not to like about a HOT silver alien and a sassy human who come together at the worst of times. Nikki Landis is my go to author when I'm in the mood to read an intriguing sci-fi, paranormal or alien romance! Loved it!

Kerra never thought she'd be attacked by strange aliens since she was protected by the Cardinal Edict. Or, so she thought. Until she wasn't...

Cheese and crackers, I love this series! Did you read "Seekers, the Last Oracle" in the "Summer Solstice Anthology"? If so, then you'll remember being introduced to Motok. If you didn't, not to worry. Nikki Landis has brought Motok and his crew to life with such vitality. And the chemistry between him and Kerra is HOT in a way only instant mate recognition can produce. I think what really solidified this book for me was the raw heart-felt emotion between Motok and Kerra. Such love and loyalty ...more

What a spectacular story! Motok, Braxtharian Commander, and alien warrior, is on a mission to save human women from being kidnapped and enslaved. Motok saves Kerra from being kidnapped and their connection is undeniable. Their story fascinated and ensnared me, it's action packed, full of twists and turns, and at every page, I thought it couldn't get any better, but it did, right up until the last page. A fantastic story and one you definitely need to read, I highly recommend it. I'm so looking ...more

I have said it before and I will say it again OMG another Guilty Pleasure.

Alien Romances are my total Achilles Heel I devour this genre at an alarming rate and love nothing better than being able to sit down in one sitting and get through a great story. Vindicator (Braxtharian Warriors #1) fits that criteria perfectly. Hot Aliens, Brave little human females and bad guys. Okay yes there is fight scenes and other action too. A totally satisfying read and yes I will be looking forward to devouring

No spoilers of any kind included.
Vindicator I thought was pretty awesome.
But then again I tend to think that all of Nikki Landis books are awesome.
So its a big HECK YEAH I most definitely do recommend this book because I can honestly guarantee you will love it.

Despite getting a little lost in some areas (PNR newbie) I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and the fact that it took me a bit longer to go through than my normal genre pace this story is all Alpha it makes you wish you were part of that reality for just a moment I'm excited to see where the next book takes us

Wow, this is a really great read and highly recommend. Our characters are Motok and Kerra, a Braxtharian Warrior and a kidnapped human. I don't like spoilers so won't go deep into this story but she is off-limits to him, but he wants her, no doubt about that. She is struggling to survive and no longer knows what to believe but as always life takes a twist. You have to read this one, it is a great read and the first in a series.

I totally loved reading every page of this story and am itching to read the next one.
This authors imagination and the way she tells it so well that you can almost see it in front of you like a movie on the screen is awesome.
The love and protectiveness of this species and of their mate is awesome but to be honest as much as I loved reading the whole story what happened at the end blew me away.
Very entertaining read and I believe it was well worth my time.

I just have to say that I really love this author. She has now become a favorite of mine and I had no clue til I started reading her books. I have never been one to read about aliens or space books however, there will be a few that call to me and this is one of them. Let me just say OH MY GOD I WANT A BRAXTHARIAN WARRIOR TO MYSELF. With that being said, I floved this book. So I was hooked immediately after

Motok is the commander of the Vindicator and has been sent on a mission to recover females from the enemy. He comes across as a straight shooter who follows the rule book to the T; ah.. they are always the first to crack.

Twixt and twinned and put through the ringer, keeping pace with a slew of shocking twists and startling turns, testing our characters in ways they never saw coming. When the going gets tough, she pulls on her ass kicking boots, unleashing her wrath and blowing this little fella into a tailspin with a

Great start to a new series dealing with a group of aliens that are being framed for the slavery of humans. This is how Motok, a commander of the Braxtharians, meets Kerra whose sister is in the Earth Interstellar Space Program. What follows is an action filled story with intrigue as they rush to figure out whats going on with respect to the ISP and the humans being trafficked to aliens illegally this is also a steamy book with some hot and sweet moments between Motok and Kerra.
Love how they

What a great start to a series. I honestly can say I can't wait for this series to hit the shelves...then hopefully either my real bookshelf or virtual one. A very in dept book. No who, what, when, or where. Everything is explained in time and no back checking needed. Just the way I like my book series to be. There's talk of abuse and kidnapping happenong in this book. So if it's not to your likening, don't pick this up and become disappointed.

It is suggested that he is helping his planet that have come under fire as the perpetrators of these crimes and that he will help absolve them of the crimes. He finds and rescues Kerra on Earth and finds that she is his mate. He fights his feelings in the beginning and then gives up. When he takes her to ...more

A fast moving story of greed and corruption at the highest levels of government!

Kerra was saved from alien abductors by Motok and taken to his ship for safety, only to be attacked once again by the same slavers as before. Fortunately, they were able to escape in the escape pods. There was a conspiracy being waged and Motok was determined to expose the people responsible. Kerra carried alien DNA and Motok fears for the Braxthar people are under threat due to lies and deceit.

After 10 months, they find only one female Kerra and after rescuing her he comes to realize she is his mate. The book is full of danger from slavers and corrupt officials. Its a great love story, entertaining and holds your interest to the end. There is a cliff hanger which makes the next book one that I want to read. I would highly recommend this book as ...more
