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. There’s lots of action and twists. I really enjoyed it. Can’t 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 themselves in with.

Holy Veet what a story! Mot and Kerra’s 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 that’s for sure and when they vow to protect you.. incredible the lengths they will go. I don’t read many alien romances but this story kept me wanting more and never putting my kindle down. I’m excited to see what book two has for us in the future.

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 doesn’t, their planet is under threat.

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

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...

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 f ...more

A pleasure

A pleasure to read. Of course sci-fi romances are my favorites. This author has rapidly become one of my favorites. It is action packed and the scenes are hot and steamy. She has created a whole new world. But I hope there is a continuation. What becomes of the main characters and the First who resigned his post to bring the corrupt to justice. Can't wait to read the next story. A must read for the genre lovers.

One of my fave authors with another stupendous book!! The first in the series was well written with people that suck you in to wanting more! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole alien warrior and kidnapped human theme! I do not feel it was a typical book but so much more!

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 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 it’s a big HECK YEAH I most definitely do recommend this book because I can honestly guarantee you will love it.

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.

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.

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 what’s 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.

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

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.
