ONE captive human

TWO battle-scarred alien warriors

THREE Gornian dragons

They won her heart –

Now they’re fighting for her life

Aliya’s fellow crew members from the Luna are all happily mated to hot Tharan twins. But Aartan, the sexy mature doctor who makes her heart race, doesn’t seem interested in her. What’s more, he’s shrouded in mystery. He doesn’t have a mate and no one will tell her what happened to his twin.

When she challenges him to kiss her and then swear he’s not attracted to her, Aliya unleashes the passionate warrior hidden beneath his cool façade. After one night of pleasure more intense than she’s ever known, he tells her they can never be together and sends her away.

But when Bophe, an old enemy from the past, kidnaps Aliya and threatens to have his Gornian dragons tear her limb from limb in the Arena of Tanis Major, she discovers she has not one, but two fierce Tharan warriors who will fight any foe in the Universe to the death to win her freedom.

A note from the author:

Defending Their Mate is a standalone romance in the Tharan Menage series featuring the Luna’s medical officer Aliya Rashadaman, raised by Himalayan mystics, and a pair of battle-scarred warriors with dark secrets in their past. They’re nothing like the heroes from my other books in the series. But I promise you’ll get an unexpected surprise HEA!

She tested her bonds. Thick metal bands around her wrists and another around her neck, all three connected to iron chains leading to the huge upright wooden post sunk deep into the ground in the center of the arena. Leaving her just enough room to dart ten feet or so away from the post in any direction. Enough to make sure lucky spectators in at least one quadrant of the stands would get a closer view no matter which side the attack came from.

Ancient megaliths bleached by the twin suns of Tanis Major, piled one atop the other, holding up row after row of seats filled by characters as colorful as any found in Bible stories back home on Earth. Beings from distant worlds filled the stands, each more bizarre than the one she’d seen before it. Horned aliens who could have stepped straight from the gates of Hell sat beside winged creatures whose alabaster feathers glistened in the sun. Angels and demons, come together to witness Bophe’s ultimate battle.

A hush fell over the crowd as doors on opposite sides of the center ring opened.

On the left, an enormous alien strode into the sunlight. Easily eight feet tall, dressed in the traditional garb of a Tanis Major gladiator – bare chest, short leather half-tunic ending at his knees. Thick gray-green scales covered his body, laid one over the other like a natural coat of armor. A Melizan, from the Krion Sector. She’d heard of them, but this was the first one she’d ever seen. Beings from their sector of the galaxy had reptilian characteristics. He carried a round metal shield and a long spear with a barbed tip, a weapon that would do as much damage coming out of the body as it did going in.

He wore a shiny metal death mask over his face, but she could see his eyes as he drew nearer. Wide white orbs, the pupils vertical slits. Cold and black, like the eyes of a giant lizard.

He walked with a measured gait, ignoring the cheers of the crowd as though the thunderous ovation was no more than he expected and deserved. She saw a glint in his reptilian eyes as he turned his gaze on her.

Understandable. Bophe had outdone himself. For an alien living in a barbarian outpost, he had a sophisticated grasp of psychology. Instead of having her tethered to the post stark naked, he’d come up with a brand new costume designed to titillate his audience. Her face was veiled, with only her dark eyes showing. A glittery red bra top that made her look like a Middle Eastern belly dancer cupped her breasts, cut low enough so her nipples were on the verge of popping out with any sudden movement – like fleeing from a ravenous Gornian dragon.

More veils in a rainbow of colors were tied onto a gold chain slung low on her hips, narrow ones hanging down one next to the other, like a skirt made of wide ribbons. Some trailing on the ground, others barely reaching her knees. Filmy enough the outline of her thighs and the dark patch of hair between her legs were visible through the fabric when the suns hit her at just the right angle. They fluttered apart every time she moved or was hit by a stray breeze.

Human females were a rare treat in this part of the galaxy. Other than those who’d watched Kyra fight, she was the only one most of the spectators would ever see. With the arena master’s costume design, her veils could be ripped off one at a time, prolonging the suspense. Between a bloody battle and tantalizing flashes of an exotic alien pussy and ass, Bophe had provided something to keep every one of his customers amused.

The giant came closer, prodded her with the tip of his spear. She lifted her chin and held her ground, refusing to show any fear. He poked her again, in the hip, then twirled the barbed edge of his spear around one of the dangling wisps of fabric. When he drew it back, the veil ripped away, baring a sliver of bronze skin.

He whirled the spear around over his head, displaying his prize to the crowd. They cheered and stomped their feet, two-hundred-thousand strong. Aliya could feel the vibrations in the ground beneath her bare feet, like tremors from an earthquake.

The deafening roar of the crowd died off. The alien glanced around, then stared in shock.

My ARC Review:

Book 6 in this series and can be read as a standalone.

Aliya works with Aartan in the lab, he’s an older more mature Tharan, he doesn’t appear to have a mate or a twin, but her heart races whenever they are near each other and she is highly attracted to him, but he is cold and standoffish, wanting nothing to do with her. But she feels his gyron swirling around her, knows he is as affected as she is and challenges him to a kiss. The kiss turns into a night of passion, before she is sent away for her own good. But Aliha is kidnapped and a challenge is sent out for the best set of Tharan twins to come and meet the challenge and rescue Aliha.

This is a different type of storyline to the other Tharan book I’ve read, but its still as hot as ever, but with a different take on the twins, being older and damaged from previous battles. A good story line, fast paced, suspenseful and a fun read. Well worth the read.
