Two honorable warriors with nothing left to lose…until they find her.
Prillon warrior Thomar Arcas is the royal heir to his ancestor’s legacy of dishonor, betrayal and death. When he was captured by the Hive, some on his home world cheered. Some sighed with relief. None shed a tear.
Thomar and his second, Varin, break free and destroy an enemy base, barely escaping with their lives. They transport to The Colony, the last refuge for contaminated males. Upon arrival they suffer in agony, their cyborg implants fighting for control of the powerful warriors.
Defeat is not in their blood. Not in their history. Not in their souls. Unable to sever their ties to the Hive integrations, they suffer relentless pain. Unwilling to force others to suffer, Thomar has chosen an honorable death over further disgrace; until they are matched to a human female from Earth who will do anything, and sacrifice anyone, to save them.

My ARC Review:
This was my first read of any of the Interstellar Brides books, of which there have been quite a few so far! I found it quite easy to read as a standalone, yes there are other characters in there that obviously have their own books, but this did not detract from this story or make it difficult to understand what was going on, which was great, just makes me want to read the others now!
So what I gathered was that the Interstellar Brides program matched Human women to Alien men, the aliens having volunteered themselves up for this mating program in the hope of finding themselves a matching mate.
Danika is the human woman, who has just been released from prison and has volunteered to join the brides program, having had a 99% match to Thomar and his second Varin (so she gets two for the price of one!)
The men are Prillion aliens who themselves have been prisoners of the Hive and have had alien technology integrated onto their body, which gives them a mental connection. But both these men have suffered terribly at the hands of the Hive and are shattered and broken, Thomar more so, unable to control his rage or keep himself in check. Varin helps Thomar through this connection to keep his emotions in check, but at the same time Varin suffers terribly from the outbursts that affect Thomar. Both men are shocked that Thomar has had a 99% human mate assigned to them….. Thomar feels he is unable to accept a mate as their prime directive is to protect and keep their mate safe, which he feels he is unable to do, but is willing to pass his mate onto Varin, but has plans on carrying out a final mission which he has no hope of returning from.
Danika has some fire in her, she has suffered herself and refuses to let Thomar sacrifice himself, she wants both of her mates and sets out to get them to claim her!
I enjoyed this storyline, there are some very hot and steamy menage scenes with the three mates, which does happen rather quickly, but I love how the aliens have nothing but their mates best interest at heart and would do anything to keep her safe and protected, even through all their own suffering.
I look forward to reading more of this series, I love the Hive idea and the different types of aliens being matched to human females, can’t wait to read more of this!
