Alien Captain's Claimed Bride
Being the only female on a ship full of hot dragon warriors would be a dream come true for most women. Stacy If it weren’t for all the wounded pouring into her med-center, Stacy might enjoy the novelty of being surrounded by so many admiring dragon males. Even a heads up when a battle was brewing would help. However their taciturn captain left much to be desired when it came to communication. Just when she was primed to give him a piece of her mind, he offered himself for scourging in punishment for his oversight. The poignant reminder of the abuse he’d suffered at the hands of his former queen melted away her anger. When her guard was down, she had to admit that big, scarred captain was attractive. Guarding her heart from him was going to be a nearly impossible task. Meric Draconian queens were deceitful, vicious and thought nothing of digging their claws into a warrior when least expected. Having been a breeder for ten long solars, Meric knew their ways well. Draconian females were hosts for parasites that fed on the pain of others. They’d lull a male into a false sense of security before unleashing horrible physical and emotional abuse. Humans were unlike the queens he’d known. They seemed open, outgoing and almost innocent compared to Draconian queens. There was no arguing that they were clever and intelligent beings, but Meric harbored reservations about their true motivations. He’d guard himself until he was sure they weren’t simply more skilled at deception. Especially the lovely healer who had insisted upon joining his crew. Meric knew that he spent far too much time thinking of the fair human female. It took all his discipline as a warrior not to follow her with his eyes and come running when she needed assistance. He refused to allow himself to become enamored with another cruel female, albeit it one wrapped in a beautiful package.

    Captain Meric was happy to be in command again, patrolling the shipping lanes in their territory. He had come from a very brutal background, being a breeder for the parasite-driven female Draconians who thrived on inflicting physical and emotional pain. Queen Stonara had almost broken him. When she was overthrown, rather than killing her outright, the warriors had abandoned her on a primitive planet with no technology and no way to leave.Meric’s ship picked up a fight between two ships. Investig Captain Meric was happy to be in command again, patrolling the shipping lanes in their territory. He had come from a very brutal background, being a breeder for the parasite-driven female Draconians who thrived on inflicting physical and emotional pain. Queen Stonara had almost broken him. When she was overthrown, rather than killing her outright, the warriors had abandoned her on a primitive planet with no technology and no way to leave.Meric’s ship picked up a fight between two ships. Investigating, they found a large, better-equipped Moltan vessel attacking a smaller Yuroba ship, an Intergalactic Council member authorized to travel in this area, containing families and cargo travelling to the colonies. Meric warned them to stand down, as their attack was a violation. But they refused, not recognizing the Council’s authority. The Moltans said the other ship had stolen human females from them, and a scan revealed the Yuroba had 100 human females and 200 Yuroba females. Meric asked the Moltans to transmit their permit and they would resolve the issue. Above all, they would prevent trafficking of females against their will. Considering females as property, the Moltans saw no difference. The females were bought to breed with their males and continue their line. But as they tried to make peace, two more Moltan ships were now approaching and preparing to attack. He had to take out the ship in front of him or he would have no chance against three of them at once.Stacy was in the Healing Unit consoling a bored young Draconian who was tired of watching cells grow. He had wanted to be a Healer, so it was good to experience the less exciting moments he would have to encounter. The regenerating tissue and organ cells would be vital in an emergency. She always wanted to be ready to save lives. Phan invited her to dinner with his father and Captain Meric since he thought she would be a good Queen to match with his hero, the Captain. But just then sirens blared and they had to prepare for incoming wounded.With brilliant strategy, Meric guided his crew into a successful attack. When the last remaining Moltan ship suddenly burst into speed that should not have been possible, Meric recalled the cruel Queen Mother having the only ship capable – but she was far away on a primitive planet. Were they all in danger? Had she found a wormhole or some other means to come back and wreak havoc in their sector?This is another good story by this author. It started slowly, but the battle scenes stepped up the pace. Knowing the cruelty of the Draconian Queens, the reader can understand the anxiety of not knowing if the Queen Mother was once again a threat. The tension keeps the reader involved with the story line. We also get to see whether Meric will ever be willing to risk himself with involvement with a female – as their Healer is very aware of him and Phan is more than eager to play matchmaker!

    Great plot, cardboard charactersJuno Wells has written some of my favorite alien SF romance, but this book isn't one of them. The plot is classic Juno Wells: spicy romance between hunky alien heroes and Earth women who rock their worlds, with a little action, a little danger, and just a smidgeon of angst. This time around, however, the characters are flat and lacking in personality. Can't see what's so attractive about either one, other than looks, and I certainly didn't feel the chemistry.

Worse, I think the editing was very poor, and made for many disruptive pauses in the story. Hope her next book is mo bettah.

    Great continuation to the series. I enjoyed learning more about Stacy after she was free from captivity. I also like seeing reversed gender roles, a alien race where the males can give birth. If only that could happen in real life. Overall a enjoyable and entertaining read with plenty of action, intrigue, and of course steamy romance to keep you hooked from beginning to end. Looking forward to seeing what else is in store for this series. I voluntarily read and review this ARC no monetary compen Great continuation to the series.

    Good ReadI enjoyed learning more about Stacy after she was freed from captivity in book one. Now a healer on the Raspian and the only female on board, she is attracted to the captain Meric. The story includes alien space battles, family secrets, and sex. Throw in a little humor and you have a really good book to read....enjoy.....

    4.5 pointsThis was unexpected. Reversed gender roles, a race where males can give birth, completely matriarchal society. There is an actual plot! People talk, make intelligent decisions, motivations of the characters actually make sense. If you're into Mars-needs-women trope but cannot abide alphahole/rapey/toxically masculine heroes then Juno Wells seems to be one of the authors to check out.

    It was just Ok.I don't know what is the problem with this book 😑!? The story is interesting but the chemistry between the hero and the heroine is almost zero. I think this is the problem with all the other J.W's books. The romantic side is very weak. Maybe the writer should be brave when she deals with romantic situations. 😮

    This is a well-written story that held my interest throughout it is Stacy and Meric's story. Meric has so much he has to get over before he will trust a woman after what he went through at the hands of a Draconian queen. This story kept me turning pages.
