After meeting the sassy Barb owner of a Texas-style BBQ restaurant in Sixx’s story, I was tickled to discover that Barb was the heroine of this latest in the Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides stories.
Kord is the six book in a series of standalone stories about aliens coming to earth to hopefully find their fated mates through the help of the Intergalactic Dating Agency.
Kord and his brother Braxx have been on several agency related dates and can’t seem to figure out why the matches are far from being compatible like when he tries to take his latest date to a BBQ restaurant that other Dakonians swear by. His date stomps off and he meets Barb the owner on a crazy night when her place is busy and she’s understaffed. Kord knows right away that Barb is his and decides to take it slow when he realizes that human females don’t feel a fated mate pull. He takes a job as busboy and courts his lady slowly.
Barb comes across as big and brassy in attitude and her hair to match her fake Texas twang, but she knows herself to be a fraud. Growing up the child of two alcoholics, she is convinced that the deck is stacked against her for having a good relationship and family so she throws all her energy and her time into her restaurant and pretends her past doesn’t exist. But, then kind, hardworking and sexy Kord comes along and he steadily wears down her shields and gets her to show her real self. But then her fears get the best of her.
As I have come to anticipate, this was a fast and fun, heartwarming and sexy sci-fi romance. Kord is sweet, honest, and uncomplicated while the author gave Barb a past that made me cheer hard that she could get peace and find her way to love.
Braxx’s story is next and his heroine, Holly, was a side character in this one, too. It should prove to be a corker the way sparks flew between the pair already.
Those who need a quick read, but want some good development, fun, and spicy romance with a sci-fi element should give this spin off to the Alien Mate series.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
