Claimed For The Alien Bride Lottery by Margo Bond Collins


I thought I’d escaped being given to an alien warrior. I was wrong.

I was one hour away from washing out of the Alien Bride Games.

None of the Khanavai warriors had chosen me, and I was scheduled on the next shuttle off the filming station.

But then a bright red alien passed me in a hallway—and the next thing I knew, we were all over each other.

Bad enough that my name had been drawn in the Bride Lottery.

Now, even though they’re supposedly over, I’m back in the Games. And not the usual ones, either—a whole new set of challenges, just for me.

Guess it’ll make for good television back home.

I just hope I can resist him long enough to get back to Earth, to the people I love.

And that I can keep him from learning my most desperate secret.

The odds aren’t looking good, though…

I really liked how different this alien book was. I mean the aliens were red, and they had specific names for themselves. Plus, they had their own honor code. It was very interesting.

I liked the idea of a bride lottery, and bride games to get the man. That’s very creative, and fascinating all on its own. This book was full of suspense because of the horde, and if they would come back. Which they did, and they are up to something, which is no good for the brides.

This book reminded me of The Brides Of The Kindred Series by Evangeline Anderson. Both this book, and Evangeline’s series have aliens that get brides from earth, and they get their mates in a similar way. This I found to be pretty cool because I love The Brides Of The Kindred Series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout, and am voluntarily leaving a review.
