Alien Warrior's Captive Bride Review

    You catch more dragons with honey...Alien Warrior's Captive Bride is a sort of futuristic SF fairy tale. Hope, aptly named human woman rescued from alien traders, finds herself light-years away form Earth and in a foreign region of the galaxy, beholden to a Draconian warrior named Larok for her rescue and continued safety. At Larok's end of the wormhole, all females are queens, all queens are power-mad ruthless despots, and warriors are a dime-a-dozen expendables not even worthy of reproducing.

Hope, aptly named human woman rescued from alien traders, finds herself light-years away form Earth and in a foreign region of the galaxy, beholden to a Draconian warrior named Larok for her rescue and continued safety. At Larok's end of the wormhole, all females are queens, all queens are power-mad ruthless despots, and warriors are a dime-a-dozen expendables not even worthy of reproducing. So Larok hides the existence of his hatchling (yup, male Drconians lay eggs) and tries to make himself invisible to this new Earth Queen. NOT HAPPENING. Hope is blessed with natural optimism, an ebullient personality and a gift for empathy - in short she's a downtrodden Draconian warrior's wet dream. She conquers with kindness. Draconian warriors one and all adopt her as their (reluctant) queen, and their submissive acculturation essentially forces her to govern. When she undertakes the mantle of leadership, she reveals a strong, just, pragmatic and responsible side, and that seals the deal. Queen Hope will start a revolution and lead her people to freedom - starting by freeing her rescuer Larok and taking him as her mate! It's crazy how she manages to have as much sex as Laroc can handle while leading the new wave back to her old neck of the galaxy, but this is Juno Wells - steamy, sexy, space opera romance at its adorably lunatic best.

    Two characters on journeys of self-discoveryHope had a plan, then her ship was raided, she was taken hostage, and after that things really went crazy. Hope comes from a place Larok simply can not imagine. At first she is describing things that seem unfathomable, but then she shows him things that contradicts a lifetime of experience, and gradually he cares to hope that not only has she been telling the truth, but this better life could be his realuty.Larok is not an Alpha warrior, or some strong Two characters on journeys of self-discoveryHope had a plan, then her ship was raided, she was taken hostage, and after that things really went crazy. Hope comes from a place Larok simply can not imagine. At first she is describing things that seem unfathomable, but then she shows him things that contradicts a lifetime of experience, and gradually he cares to hope that not only has she been telling the truth, but this better life could be his realuty.Larok is not an Alpha warrior, or some strong, dynamic hero in the traditional senses. He is the guy, whether we realize it or not, we want, because slow and steady wins the race, and chapter after chapter he finds it within to step up, to face the emotional and internal challenges and fears, to be by Hope's side, and to figure out how to be the man she wants and needs him to be, even when it runs counter to a lifetime of experience.This quick read stands alone well, but feels like it is tied in to other stories, and several times left me trying to recall if I had already read stories in another part of this universe.I was gifted with a copy of this story, switched to the Kindle Unlimited version when it was published, and chose to post a review.

    I absolutely loved this book, I thought it was the sweetest story I have ever come across. I kinda wished that the males in this book existed in real life because to me they are the perfect man. They were the perfect blend of both strong and vulnerable. And they weren’t dominating with the I am king bow down to me attitude. Which to me was so refreshing and that’s why I loved this book. Juno Wells is definitely a awesome story weaver. So yes I most definitely recommend this book to anyone who’s I absolutely loved this book, I thought it was the sweetest story I have ever come across.

    I couldn't put this book down . . .Read through the night A great human/dragon sci-fi romance! Excellent story with many twists and turns that are very interesting and exciting. If you're a fan of humans being rescued by dragons (as I am) with romance added in, then this is the book for you! A must read.

    This quick read is a standalone, but at time feels like it's tried in to other stories, and several times I had to stop and think did I read that story so that was kinda frustrating. But besides that I found this to be a very enjoyable and entertaining read. I voluntarily read and review this ARC no monetary compensation was received the opinions I have expressed are my own.
