I am not broken.

These are strong words to live by and the slogan of this book.

Van cannot have children. If she does, the process could kill her. After she is confronted by a member of the Federal Bureau of Intergalatic Affairs and requests she 'volunteer' for the Mahdfel Brides Program, Van hightails it halfway across the galaxy to a mining moon. During an attack by the Suhlik, she is rescued from her bombed vehicle by Jaxar.

Jaxar is an engineer and the moment he meets Van, he knows that she

🚀Great world building and a feisty heroine 😊

Author Nancey Cummings has outdone herself in building her fantasy outer space backdrop for this romantic action adventure about suffers-no-fools Van(essa) and Mahdfel engineer Jaxar. Although the technical aspects sometimes went over my head, I really appreciate the detail of her vision of the moon base and spaceships particularly. She used alot of humor, particularly around Jaxar and his attempts to win over Van, and made their adventure b

Second chance at love and happiness. Vanessa had already been forced to be a bride to an alien and it didn’t go well. Her pregnancy damaged her heart, her child died and her health was compromised for the rest of her life. If she becomes pregnant again she will die. Her alien husband Havek divorced her and sent her back to Earth. Two years later she is finally getting her dream, an education in botony and never having to be a forced bride again because she is “damaged”. But a recruiter comes to ...more

This story of human woman Van, aka Vanessa and Jaxar the Mahdfel who really wants Van for a mate, but faces resistance from Van who has been an alien bride and refuses to make that mistake again. The Aliens want to have babies but that isn't for her, been there, done that. Van grows fungi, she's an almost botanist who prefers to do her job and hopefully finish school to get her degree. Jaxar has been looking for his mate for so long and feels he's found her with Van. The things Jaxar does to try ...more

The book gets off to sort of a slow start but once Vanessa and Jaxar meet, it moves along at a good pace. This sweetly charming alien romance has interesting characters and a heartwarming, smile inducing story. Let down by people who were supposed to care for her, feisty Vanessa is attracted to Jaxar but has no intention of mating with him. Jaxar had almost resigned himself to never finding his mate but he knows she is the one the moment he sees her and will do anything to convince her they belo ...more

Van and Jaxar break through the barriers

I loved this story. Jaxar isn't a young warrior, and he's a bit melancholy as his adopted Sangrin family members grow older while he, a Sangrin Mahdfel, continues in his prime. He's withdrawn and self-protective. Van, short for Vanessa, is still young, but her short stint as a Rolusdreus Mahdfel mate has made her world-weary, and wary. She wants nothing to do with Mahdfel or men, knowing that mating is about bearing children, and that a pregnancy will kill

Great story about a woman, Vanessa, who was matched in the Mahdfel Brides program and then sent home when she lost a baby and was told not to get pregnant again. She is spooked when a guy shows up at her door insinuating that she will have to be rematched. She finds a job off planet where she can use a man's name, Van, and escape notice. When the planet is attacked the Mahdfel eventually show up to defend it and she finds herself in the sights of a gorgeous Mahdfel male who is determined that sh ...more

I really liked this story. I loved the fact that Van was not interested in getting married again and thought the reason why was handled very well and did not distract form the story. They were great characters and this made for some funny scenes. Others from the series popped in and put where they did the most to entertain me. Just a fun story that I had to read in one sitting to see how it would end and how they would end up together (as you know there is a happy ending somehow). A good addicti ...more

A sci-fi romance that doesn’t focus on making babies? There aren’t nearly enough of them. I loved that while Van had wanted a baby, she didn’t let her infertility define her. She still loved herself and didn’t feel broken.

Jaxar is funny, sweet, protective, and just amazing all around. The ways he shows Van what she means to him, and so easily accepted any family they might have would mean adopting, made him perfect for her. All he needed was his mate, and he was determined to win her.

Jaxar wants what all his fellow Mahdfel warriors have - a mate. When he meets Vanessa, he knows she is his fated mate but the situation is complex. Vanessa was divorced from her previous Mahdfel mate and doesn't want anything to do with them or to become a baby factory and, in fact, she can't have children. She fights her attraction to Jaxar and his working so much when she was first ordered to go to his ship for a project makes it challenging for her to know how to feel. The characters are well ...more

Great Read

Jaxar and Van....they just are perfect for each other. No matter the obstacles placed in their respective paths, they persevere. I loved how the worries Van carried about not giving an heir to her prospective mate, were lovingly put to rest by Jaxar. He proved with actions, not just words, that SHE was all he needed in the world. They were a family together. Great read!

What a enjoyable and entertaining read plus I'm a total sucker for second chance at love story. Plenty of intrigue, action, and of course steamy romance to keep you hook from beginning to end. I especially liked the chemistry between Van and Jaxar. Overall a great read looking forward to seeing what else is in store for this series. ...more

I enjoyed the story of Jaxar finding his female, the story flowed quite nicely with Jaxar trying to convince his fated mate that she was everything to him even if she cant have any children due to a heart condition. Throw in an ex husband who wants her back..the story does carry on in the next book which was a bit disappointing ,but still a good book.

I love the characters and how they come together. Jaxar is adorable and sweet, but isn't good at picking up on Vanessa's moods. Vanessa is strong willed and won't take anything from anyone.... even a handsome alien. This book made me laugh and melts my heart. *I was gifted a copy for my honest opinion.* ...more

Love the character Vanessa! To my feeling she moved in from one nasty situation to another heroically working through them and living her life. Jaxar is a well meaning lovestruck alien who finds Vanessa enthralling.

Not Always About Babies

Great addition to this series. I love that Jaxar wants Van no matter what it just show that these warriors are not always about having babies with their brides. Van is an awesome heroine with a smart mouth and lots of heart.

Another great Warlord Bride, with a twist! I love these stories; they are fun and fast, with lovable characters and a slight over-arching storyline to tie them all together. Jaxar and Van were particularly likeable characters, especially when Van's grumpy, stubborn self meets Jaxar's steadfast and also stubborn self. The book included a trigger warning for women who have lost a child, which i appreciated; the trigger-warning paved the way for this lovely character to find her HEA just as she is. ...more
