THE HEAT IS ON!
Defying The General by USA Today bestselling author Maddie Taylor HAS LAUNCHED!
Lana Hartman intends to find a new planet for the desperate people of Earth to call home, but this explorer-turned-colonist is about to get more than she bargains for in the form of a seven-foot-tall alpha alien with enigmatic eyes and a devastating smile. Chased, manhandled, and carried off over a broad, muscular shoulder, Lana soon finds herself claimed as the gorgeous warrior’s lifelong mate.
Together, they are explosive. The primal male awakens something deep within Lana and proves himself quite skilled at bringing her to the most mind-blowing orgasms. But love isn’t enough for the beauty to abandon her mission.
Fate draws them together, but danger and deceit will wrench them apart. Can they find their way back to each other while doing what they must to save their people? Or, will treachery keep them from claiming their happily forever after?
Defying the General is book 4 in The Primarian Mates Series but may be read and enjoyed as a standalone HOT sci-fi romance!
My ARC Review:
This was my first book by Maddie Taylor, though this is the fourth in this Primarian Mates series, it can be read as a standalone like I did, but I did find it jumped around a little bit with referencing to other books in the series, which didn’t but me off, I will definitely go back and read those after reading this!
Lana is a human who gets captured by one of the Primarian aliens, who turns out to be General Trask. They are fated to be mates and after her initial resistance and reluctance, the chemistry and attraction between them proves too great to resist. Everything seems to be going well until she learns something about herself and decides the best thing for her to do is leave General Trask and let him find another more suitable mate.
There are a lot of plot twists in this story and lots going on, some of which refer back to other books in this series. I love the connection between Trask and Lana, their chemistry is hot, and when Lana misbehaves Trask is always there on hand being his Alpha dominant self to dish out a bit or correctional behavior spanking!!
There are lots of interesting side characters in here, some of which are probably in the other books, which I can’t wait to read more of. This was an engaging story line that had me captivated from the start, emotional at times, with elements of angst, drama, suspense and mystery as well as some very hot sexy scenes.
A great choice read for any erotic alien sci fi readers.

A USA Today and #1 international bestselling author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and ofttimes defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger and suspense to her plots.
Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.
