Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Raina – She considers herself adaptable. So when she finds herself on the alien prison planet Nuthora, she is determined to create a new life for herself and be as independent as she was on Earth. She goes foraging for nuts and fruits every day, not waiting around for the huge Voxeran warriors to accompany her.
The Hero: Kaide – He is large and loud, always cracking jokes and talking crap. While practicing his warrior skills one day, he notices Raina watching and feels something deep in his chest. It distracts him and bothers him since he never lets himself lose focus during a fight. Yet Raina’s face keeps popping into his head and he soon knows that she is his mate.
The Story: Raina doesn’t want a mate bond to determine who she ends up with. She wants to fall in love the old fashioned way like on Earth, and get to know a man before she is expected to be with him. Though she did feel the same thing as Kaide when their eyes met at the training grounds. She never wanted the males to get any ideas because she wanted to stay independent.
Raina is disturbed when Kaide figures everything out and blurts out in front of everyone that they are mates, so she tells Kaide that she wants to take time to get to know him and see if feelings develop between them. Kaide agrees and when they both decide to go on the mission to the city to trade for goods, they are able to spend time together.
I like these alien romance stories when the main characters go on a journey together and though Raina and Kaide went to the city with four other Voxeran warriors, they end up spending a few days alone together in the city after something goes wrong. It was a good storyline and it held my interest.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by C.J. Grey and Kat Auden. I like that these books have different female narrators. Though I was really happy with the last book. C.J. Grey has a great voice for alien romance and his tempo reminds me a bit of Mason Lloyd who does the Ice Planet Barbarian series. Kat Auden also has a great voice, soft and feminine, which is exactly what I like. I dislike a female voice which is too loud or clear, or an annoying one which can hurt the ears.
