The Delight

Stormy always falls for the bad boys on earth, but falling for a handsome, brooding alien will be different, right?  I have such a good time with this series.  Light and amusing, sexy and exciting sci-fi romance at its best.

Review

Alien Intention is the third book in the Alien Mates series.  It is directly tied to the book that came before it and probably wouldn’t work well out of order.

Alien Intention involves the sister to Sunny, the heroine of book two, and the villain from that book.  Oh yes, you read that one right.  Stormy falls for the bad guy.  But, Romando had his reasons and now he’s ready to prove that he’s changed when he gets a second opportunity to choose a mate.  Only, a couple people don’t want Stormy to find a handsome alien and be happy or for Romando to get a second chance.  And, Romando, himself, isn’t sure he wants the sister of his enemy no matter how attracted he is to her.

I enjoyed Stormy as the plucky heroine who has had a few bad breaks, but doesn’t let it get her down.  She’s sweet, but she has inner strength.  She loves her sister, but they don’t see eye to eye and Stormy’s track record with men go against her.

Romando was great.  I felt so sorry for him.  He just couldn’t seem to catch a break and no one deserves the situation he was originally stuck in at the beginning of the story when he got saddled with a harpy mate.  He let his anger make him do something stupid in the last book.  He really isn’t a bad guy, but now he’s got a reputation and others are willing to use it to their advantage.

The romance was love at first sight, but there were complications so it felt just right the way it all developed.  And, whew boy did this pair make up for lost time when they finally did come together.
Seeing them have to fight to be together and seeing how their personalities compliment each other was great.

Devon, Stormy’s little boy was a cutie and I loved the scenes when Romando treated him like he was really his father and he wanted Devon as his son as much as he wanted Stormy as his mate.

The conflict in this plot was great.  Just when I think things would work out, boom, there was a twist.  And, then more trouble.  The hero and heroine really have to work and fight for what they wanted and a few nasty persons that needed a Kel to run them over.

I’m not sure if there are more from this series, but I saw that there is a spin-off series of Alien Mail-Order Brides that has me excited to keep reading in the Alien Mates world.  I can’t recommend this series enough for those who are in the mood for light and quick sci-fi romance reads with a touch of humor and sultry alien loving in a nicely developed plot.

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.
