Audiobook Review: Enticed by the Alien Warlord (Fated Mates of the Ferlaern Warriors, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Enticed By an Alien Warlord by Ava Ross

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

He has tusks and a tail, and insists she’s his fated mate. She’s enticed, but determined not to get involved. Can a burly alien warrior and a single mom find love together on a planet far from Earth?

Garek: With my clan threatened, I don’t have time for romance with a pesky Earth female. Until I meet Piper. She and her youngling son are part of our planet’s new settlement. Soon, I find myself helping her plan her home and talking about odd Earthling activities. What is a square dance and must I do it? She’s soft and lush in all the right places, and I could pick her up and carry her around with one arm. And her son… I ache to show him how to tame a mighty winged trundier. Piper may say she doesn’t need love, but I’ll do whatever it takes to win her heart.

Piper: I brought my eight-year-old son to Ferlaern to start anew–the new wild west, we’re calling this planet. The other women want romance but not me. Then I meet Garek, a seven-foot-tall, gruff warrior who’s out to steal my heart. Burned in the past, I’m afraid to trust. Never mind that he makes my son laugh for the first time in forever or that his kisses… Not going there. But when our settlement’s attacked by vicious creatures, it’ll take both of us to survive the threat.

The Story: two years ago a disease swept across Earth which killed most of the men. The women tried to go on, until an alien race made first contact. They came in peace, exchanging goods and technology. It seems that much of their female population had been wiped out so matches were made and mail order brides were sent out. It worked well, so another race, called the Ferlaern approached Earth stating that if human females came to settle on their planet, be courted by their men and when matches were made, the women would be taken care of.

The Hero: Garek – he and other clan leaders were in charge of building the settlement for the human females. The humans were encouraged to settle in the mountain region, but they insisted on constructing homes in the low region where they would be vulnerable. He hoped that the women would be wise and settle in the Ferlaern communities.

The heroine: Piper – she arrived on Ferlaern with her young son Noah and was named the leader of the group of humans. Back on Earth she had been abused by her husband, but when he turned on their son, Piper finally went to the police, but her husband John got out of jail and wanted revenge. Piper escaped by going to Ferlaern.

The Ferlaern had something called maelstrom mates, which haven’t happened in many years since before their females started dying out. They can mate females, but the maelstrom bond was something special. Garek is a clan leader but was intent on becoming a full warlord. Though warlords can’t have a maelstrom mate. A leader is challenged each cycle for leadership where a warlord is leader for the rest of his life.

The story was better than I expected from some of the other reviews I read. It had some thrills and chills, dangerous aliens and creatures. There was action and adventure, which I like in an alien romance. The world building was pretty good as well. Though I did think it was pretty funny that the women wanted to build a new wild west but when another alien race raided their camp, they were ready to leave. Have they never seen a western movie with cowboys and indians?

This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and is narrated by Stephen Dexter and Felicity Munroe. These are both terrific narrators. Stephen has a deep, yet soft voice which is sexy and perfect for a tough male warlord. While Felicity has a clear feminine voice and she is great at expressing herself through her voice. She also does a kid’s voice very well.
