The Delight

Toni Sutterman is not the kind to rock the boat and does everything by the book.  Roguish Aton makes Toni see that some rules are meant to be broken and she might have some rogue in her after all.  The second book was just as fun and fantastic as the first one with a new sort of adventure for an alien to earth and the woman he claims as mate.


Aton follows Darak in the series and there is a tie to it and to the series these spin from, but it would also work fine as a standalone.

After the demise of her parent pleasing plans to make law partner, marry well, and live her mother’s idea of the perfect life, Toni impetuously opens her own law practice and signs up for an alien of her own so she can be happy and in love like her sister.  Only, Toni’s perfect match gets his immigration canceled and now she has to try again.
But, Aton isn’t having that.  He does an end around the system and presents himself to the woman he already knows is his mate.  Just when he is so close to what he wants, the system catches up and Toni learns her alien is illegal and they might be separated for good.

Like with Darak, this one was a fun blend of humor, light and spicy romance, and a few suspenseful moments to complicate matters.  The tasering misunderstanding cracked me up and I enjoyed the off world guy encountering confusing earth customs.  Toni and Aton were fun together and I enjoyed how he taught her to loosen up and live a little.  Her smarmy ex was troublesome, but it was fun to see how the girl power network took on that conniving jerk.

The couple from the next book were introduced and I got a good chuckle.  I can see there is going to be more fun and feisty times ahead.

Aton was a quick and engaging read that will definitely delight light sci-fi romance fans.

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 does sound like fun! I haven’t read too many alien romances so it would be a nice change for me.

Absolutely, Carole. These are a nice choice for a quick-read palette cleanser, I think.

Haha! Yeah, the covers are appealing. Well, technically this is set on earth, but it was all about the alien. 🙂

So glad you enjoyed this one, Sophia. I don’t think I’ve ever read a romance with an alien hero before. I love books that make me laugh. 🙂

Great review.

I’ve really liked the books from this author that I’ve read so far. This sounds like one I should add to my wish list.

Same here! I’m hooked now on pretty much anything she writes.

These are hilarious. They come after her earlier Alien Mate trilogy.

It’s nice how this one seems to tie in with the first book as Toni is the sister of the main character from the first book. I read the first book, but not this one yet. It sounds interesting how these go around the dating agency a bit. Sounds like it has the same feel as the first book with the humor and romance. Great review!

Yes! Each one links a little to the one before it though the couples are all in different situations with the mail order theme. Haha, the dating agency can’t hold back fate is the theme of these, I think.
