The Delight

She’s out to debunk an alien dating agency- pfft, aliens, please! And, he’s been sent on a mission to reverse the exodus of Dakonians to earth in search of mates after his own ill-fated would-be mating. How could it possibly not be a perfect match?


Krash is the seventh installment in the Dakonian Mail Order Brides series, but also crosses over as the fifth in the Alien Mates series. It could be read out of sequence, but I got a lot more out of it having read both series in order.

Krash thought he was the luckiest of Dakonians in that he was on the verge of a mating with one of the rare Dakonian women until he ends up accepting Enoki’s mission to go to earth and try to encourage mated Dakonians to return to the homeworld which would suffer in future if it lost too much of it’s population. He had no intentions of truly participating in the Intergalactic Dating Agency because he doesn’t plan to stay and he’s just been hurt badly by a female, but his first meeting with Cyan Blue makes that decision all the more difficult to hold to.

Meanwhile, Cyan Blue’s latest assignment for her job of debunking scammers and con artists has sent her to get to the bottom of the Intergalactic Dating Agency and this, haha, alien match up program. She was deceived and hurt by a man so is determined to prevent that for other women so happily puts up a profile and pretends to seek a match. But, wow, is this place good because they haven’t slipped at all. Finally, she gets a date with an ‘alien’ and she can start really investigating. Krash isn’t what she was expecting and, what if it’s all genuine??? But, he’s not staying, right?

I missed this series so I was delighted to discover one more story for both related series. Krash and Cyan were engaging characters and my heart went out to both of them right away. It was kind of funny seeing Cyan skeptical and in investigation mode at the alien bar and with Krash.

Like the rest of the series, these are light and sexy, but there are some wonderful layered background for both, solid conflict for them to overcome, and fabulous world building. Krash brought back all the wonderful reasons I loved both series and it was great to get a reunion with many previous romance pairs both on Dakon and earth. Definitely recommend for light, sci-fi romance fans.

About the book
Krash by Cara BristolKRASH BY CARA BRISTOL

When a dating agency claims to match Earth women with extraterrestrials, fraud investigator Cyan Blue goes undercover as a client to expose the scam. She’s not interested in finding love and certainly not with a pretend alien!

With their planet suffering a critical lack of females, Dakonian men begin emigrating to Earth in search of mates. Concerned about the impact of the mass exodus, Krash joins a dating agency to gain passage to Earth so he can convince his fellow Dakonians to return home. As soon as he completes his assignment, he’s going back to Dakon. The last thing he desires is to mate with a human.

Two missions are about to collide in a perfect match.

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.

I really need to try this author as I enjoyed another series very similar. I like that it’s only 124 pages. I wonder if there’s an audio…

These are light and entertaining and quick reads as you noticed. I’m not sure if she’s got her books in audio though I lean toward saying no. I’ve only seen some of her cyborg books made into audio. She does do freebies from time to time which is how I got this one so you could go that route to try them.

This is such a new genre to me, though after reading a couple books by Grace Goodwin recently, I’m intrigued. I’d love some of your favorite recommendations for sci-fi romance books 🙂

I enjoy these for light and sexy as well as quick plus she doesn’t skimp on the alien aspect.

The way I found lots of good sci-fi romances was through getting sci fi anthologies that had multiple writers for me to try. If you want to see some of my other SFR reviews, just go up in the right column and type in ‘sci fi romance’ in the search and it will bring up past reviews for the genre.
