Audiobook Review: Wed To The Alien Warlord (Accidental Alien Brides, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wed To The Alien Warlord by January Bell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The alien who hand-picked me to wed and bed is the most domineering warlord of the bunch. Lucky me.

As the first humans allowed in Suevan space, there’s a lot riding on my all-woman team. Earth desperately needs their tech, and I’m determined to prove we can negotiate the price. Without their planetary defense systems, Earth is a sitting duck, ripe for invasion.

Except the Suevan culture is nothing like ours.

When I take part in what I think is a welcoming ceremony, I leave with more than I bargained for: a husband. A mate. Apparently, we’re there to marry them as payment—something the top brass on Earth doesn’t bother denying. Fantastic.

And the Suevan who hand-picked me to wed and bed? He’s the most domineering warlord of the bunch. Lucky me. I’ll get the Suevan tech we need, but there’s no way I’m giving in to his demands…no matter how, ahem, persuasive he might be.

The heroine: Niki – She leads an all woman team into space. She has been on many missions in the past, but this is the first diplomatic mission into Suevan territory. If the mission succeeds, Earth will have an interplanetary defense system that will stave off any more alien incursions. Niki remembers the last incursion and all the bloodshed. The alien hosts insisted on an all female team from the Earth Federation.

The Hero: Draz – he is known as Draz of Edrobas, first warlord and right hand of the monarchy. Even people from Earth know he is a butcher, have seen video of him during battle on a small moon when he was protecting a small Suevan settlement. He is dangerous and beautiful. He sees Niki and sees that she knows what it is to lead.

The Story: The Suevan’s are a warlike race, living traditionally in small settlements throughout their planet, yet their weapons and warships are far advanced than anything seen in the federation. The mission is of utmost importance to the Federation. The women have to take part in the welcoming ceremony before they are given embedded translators, because the Suevan language is sacred.

Little do the human women know, they are chosen as soon as they land. Draz immediately chooses Niki as his mate and is happy with his decision. The human females think it is a welcoming ceremony, while the Suevans know it is a mating ceremony. They serve some sort of drink which is intoxicating to the women and some Suevan separatists attack.

Luckily the translators were installed in the women prior to the attack, since I really dislike alien romance where much of the book the two main characters can’t communicate with each other. This book had a good premise and with the separatists, and the fact that the Earth Federation lied to the women, there was some great conflict.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration, and was narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd, who do a lot of alien romance narration and always do a wonderful job. This book was very reminiscent of the Ice Planet Barbarians series by Ruby Dixon and that was not just because of the narrators, though that did have an effect. The world building, descriptions and banter was also very similar.
