Zenos, from the Astra Legion of Rogue 5, is on a mission to find an antidote to the deadly venom flowing through his body.

VENGENCE—REVENGE—REDEMPTION

As with the other Interstellar Bride book, they read great as a continuing saga, but each book will read well as a stand-alone. The story of an alien, Zenos of the Astra Legion of Rogue 5 and Ivy Birkeland, formerly of Earth and a retired Coalition Luietentant has some differences, some surprises, and as with all of Ms. Grace Goodwin’s stories, plenty of mystery, suspense, and hot off the charts passion.

Ivy is now a bounty hunter, but she is after Gerian Eozara of

Stop reading reviews and just grab this book and be prepared to be sucked into Rogue 5.

The Interstellar Brides' Atlans are my favorites but boy, does this hybrid Forsian come close to surpassing them. Just a note - if you couldn't tell by the blurb, these are not a matched pair (Rogues so far have been chosen and not matched).

This fascinating universe that the author has built, just gets better and better. To perfectly explain how great this story is would require spoilers and I just can't do

Ivy is an American soldier who has served with the Coalition forces fighting the Hive. But now she's looking for revenge for the death of her crew members killed by the drug Quell. Zenos is a soldier serving Astra, leader of his Rogue 5 state. These two literally meet each other, shake the sheets, and split, not wondering when and or if they'll meet again. But as we all know Ms. Grace don't leave ya hanging for long. These two DO meet back up to serve a dish called whoop ass. But what we don't ...more

Book nineteen of the Interstellar Brides Program series a well written story that has a very good storyline, the story flowed smoothly across the pages. This is human Ivy Birkeland and Zenos' story of a man in love with a woman but to afraid to trust that a cure has been found and he will not watch her die if he does what she wants. There is suspense, drama, danger, twists, turns, villains, and romance. I hope there is more to come in this series. I received a free copy of this book via ...more

Even after 20+ books in this series, the stories are still unique, sexy, romantic and full of drama and adventure. Grace Goodwin does a fantastic job of making the characters seem so realistic that you can’t help but immerse yourself into the story and cheer for their happily ever after. The world building is vivid, the danger and violence can be stark and sometimes unsettling, the ultimate love story is beautiful and the whole story is so engaging you can’t put the book down until the end (and ...more

“The Rebel and the Rogue” is Book 19, in the Interstellar Brides series and as the other books in the series is a stand alone.

The Rebel and the Rogue (Interstellar Brides Program Book 19)

It’s always a great read when Grace Goodwin’s books take us to Rogue 5. The inhabitants are mixed hybrids that create some interesting combinations. Most os those on Rogue 5 live in “clans”, they may be rogues as they don’t follow coalition rules but most are not necessarily bad (maybe “bad boys”).
This storyline’s main characters are Zenos and Ivy. Zenos is a hybrid Forsian and part of Astra League. His leader Astra has assigned him to

I normally like books by this author, however this one just missed the mark for me. Ivy is a bounty hunter seeking vengeance on the ones that supplied the drug to her unit, which got them all killed. She has hardened her heart and her only focus now is ending the lives of those responsible. While her heart is hard her body is warm and a few hours of pleasure by the Forsian, Zenos wont stop her mission.

Zenos both likes and is somewhat put out by his attraction to Ivy. These two are like a match

The Rebel and the Rogue is the nineteenth book in the Interstellar Brides Program series, but reads well as a stand alone. Ivy is on a mission for revenge but can’t get Zenos out of her mind. What started as a one night stand, he’s now her protector on Rogue 5, but while their chemistry runs hot, she’s hiding lots of secrets. Can Zenos show Ivy another way of living beyond just revenge?

Holy smokes! Ivy and Zenos are completely explosive together, right from the very beginning and all the way to

This novel was well written and edited, with no typos or wrong word choices that this reader caught. This novel had many action and adventure elements, and the world building and characterization were both very good. The heroine, especially, was a vibrant individual. The romance between hero and heroine developed naturally, though their relationship development was fairly simple because the external conflict, or stakes, in this novel were so high. This novel had low to medium levels of angst, or ...more

The softer side of Rogue 5 meets the harder side of a human... and the harder side of a human meets the even harder... well, all bad jokes aside... ;)
Ivy knows what she wants, and doesn't take too long to admit to herself what that is. After a quick hookup in a bar, Zenos becomes her gatekeeper to learning the culture of the individuals of Astra, a side effect of her journey towards killing the made she holds responsible for the death of her friends.

This another fantastic story by Grace Goodwin. I love her books! I can never get enough of them. She is one of my favorite authors. I love that we got to go back to Rogue 5. I loved the interactions between Zenos and Ivy. I didn't want the story to end.

Ivy needs to get on Rogue 5 to hunt for the male that was responsible for her ReCon team's deaths. She has something that Zenos and others like him need. His leader agrees to let Ivy go with them to Rogue 5 in exchange for the antidote. He and

I loved this book about Ivy, bent on revenge for her recon team killed by using Quell, and Zenos who is trying to get the supposed antidote for the venom in his body that can kill his mate if actually bites her during mating. Their passion is wonderfully written and there are enough twists & turns to keep you reading. We know the antidote exists but the members of Astra Legion aren’t sure. The characters on Rogue 5 are very interesting and certainly different than most parts of the ...more

Even though I tested as a Trion bride, I love Rogue 5 stories the best! The notion of Leagues and their honor appeal to me.

Ivy was a Coalition fighter who turned bounty hunter after her team was massacred. She is hunting the one who set them up to die for vengeance.

Zenos is part of Astra League and is assigned to escort and protect Ivy on her journey into Cerebus’ territory. But he doesn’t know the secrets she holds.

This is a really good story in the Rogue 5 series, and I look forward to more of

Part of the Interstellar Brides series, but I was able to read this as a stand alone, being late to discover this wonderful alien world. Grabbing you from the outset this starts with explosive heat between Zenos and Ivy who later discover they have to work together....loved the verbal sparring, Ivy is a feisty female and Zenos is deliciously dominant. Great story too of vengeance, love and trust. Also loved the support characters Astra and Barek too.

Another really great book by Grace, and this one is a real hot doozer if i have to say so myself. Plenty of action from the heroine which causes all sorts of reactions from the hero and his people.
Ivy is a survivor and she is out for revenge to get the person who killed her own family. She will do any tthing to get this person and becoming a bounty hunter was just one of those things she had to do .
She will not love, will not mate, but sex is still on the cards , hot sex!
