The Delight

When I want a little spicy fun, light and easy in my alien romance, I know that I need look no further than this light sci-fi series from Cara Bristol.  Her Dakonians are stand-up, loyal, sweet, strong and oh so devoted to their special fated females and its always a blast seeing them working to win said female to their side.

Review

Sixx is the fourth of the Dakonian Alien Mail Order Bride standalone series within the larger Intergallactic Dating Agency series.

Sixx has come to earth to find a mate he can take home to be with him and his son to build a family.  He thinks he has found that with Moxie on their first date until he learns that she has no intentions of leaving earth.  Ever.  She has her own dreams and no matter how much chemistry they share or that he knows they are fated mates, she isn’t coming back with him.  But, he has a month before he must leave so he has by no means given up persuading her to change her mind.

Moxie is a workaholic both for her bosses gaming company and her own side work to develop her own game.  She has shunted aside her romantic mom, her friends, and her dating life for her work and dream of publishing her own game and having her own software company.  But, a gal needs a life so she decides to try the Intergalactic Dating Agency that gave her friends the alien men of their dreams.  Sixx is all she could ever want if only he would stay on earth so she could have her dream and love without having to give something up.

It was with anticipation of an easy, light read that would leave a smile on my face that I picked this one up and settled in to enjoy.  I liked both Sixx and Moxie and thought the author developed a solid romantic conflict that through a complication into an otherwise easy fated mates scenario.  Moxie was the focus as she had all the friends, family, and work connections there on earth so I was glad to get a bit of Sixx’s home situation at one point.

And, the added suspense facet of Moxie’s attack and the further incidents was a bonus.

I can’t wait for Moxie’s colorful country gal friend, Barb, to get her story next.

All in all, its a fast read, but not under-developed for sci-fi romance readers on the go that I can definitely recommend.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

This sounds lovely, I really love seeing a strong developed conflict especially in a sci fi….going to grab this one up soon.

Start with the earlier Dakonian alien series and then the Alien Mialorder series, if you can. She does give you a nice fast read, but there is still good conflict going on. 🙂

I’ve started this book, but haven’t gotten very far in it. I just haven’t been in a reading mood. I hope to finish it this week. I’ve just been in a funk lately. I do love this author and series too.

I get like that and have to switch back and forth sometimes between formats or jump to new genres to mix things up a bit.
