The Forgotten Commander (Lost Planet, #1)
Our planet, Mortuus, is lost and dying.A desolate place where a few lone survivors dwell.My men have lost hope. Our future is bleak.Longevity is a luxury we can’t afford.The most we can hope for is survival.We’ve all but given up when an opportunity presents itself.Five females—a chance at a future.Procuring these women went against everything I’d been taught, but desperate times call for desperate measures.They’re ours now.Asleep and made ready for breeding.We won’t die out—lost and forgotten.It’s our destiny to grow and once again inhabit our lonely planet.I am Breccan Aloisius, the forgotten commander.My people will have the future they deserve.I’ll make sure of it.My mind is made up…until she wakes and nothing goes as planned.

You taught me to care again when I wanted nothing more than to let myself burn up with this planet. For that, I owe you the world. I owe you whatever life you want for yourself…” WOW! It has been a while since I have read a science fiction romance and all I can say was that ”THE FORGOTTEN COMMANDER” was super steamy and so addicting! I couldn’t get enough of this story and am dying to get my hands on the next book! I hope that K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard will be able to deliver the same level of awesomeness in the future installments.In this story, there are a group of ten alien males who live together on a desolate planet. They’re the last of their species and two of them come back from a search expedition with five human females who they found on an abandoned spaceship, in sleep capsules. This is a joyous discovery for the men as they were losing all hope of surviving. Now they feel they have a shot at saving their race by possibly impregnating these women. They try at first to artificially inseminate one for fear of catching any disease because that's what caused them to lose so many of their people in the past, but it doesn’t work. When the woman awakens, she is terrified by the pasty white alien vampire looking males she is surrounded by.Breccan Aloisius is the commander in charge of the group of men and he instantly is drawn to the beautiful little alien. He decides to claim her for himself and at first, she fights him every chance she gets. Aria doesn’t know how she ended up in this strange situation. She just remembers having a hard life previously and turned to drugs to escape the despair. She has no idea how she ended up on that spaceship put under a constant state of cryogenic sleep either. She’s fierce and fights for her independence but she also can’t help that she is starting to develop an intense attraction for Breccan. For the first time in her life, someone is treating her like she’s their world. As if she is the most precious thing in his universe and she comes to realize that she is actually happy and hasn’t had one urge to turn to drugs to numb the pain.Will Breccan and Aria be able to successfully procreate? When Aria decides to protect the other four women which goes against Breccan's plans to pair them up with some of his men in hopes of procreating, will it tear the couple apart?Here are my overall ratings:Hero: 5Heroine: 4.5Plot: 4.5Angst: 4Steam: 5Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5THE FORGOTTEN COMMANDER releases on February 13th!

    K. Webster is writing Sci-Fi?!?! With breeding trope?!?!Count me in.The scifi stories with lots of breeding are some of my favourite bedtime stories and my midnight snack :)I have to admit that it was a good effort. But I needed more. Not much details, not much world building, very abrupt start.I will wait for the next book.

    I’m sorry to say I found this book disappointing. There’s very little world building and I didn’t particularly like any of the characters. Generally this is the point where I cut my losses and move on. But this book had some fabulous reviews so I stuck with it.I struggled all the way through. Yes Breccan eventually tried to please his mate. Along with the rest of his guys but it was too little too late for me.Aria was simply annoying and the story itself had more holes than Swiss cheese.

I loved this story and the desolate world these authors have created. Aria was once a jaded, lost celebrity and now she really has a purpose. Not only does she have the chance to teach the morts and her Commander, she's learning a thing or two as well. This story was about hope and desperation. It was about loss and new beginnings. It was hella hot and full of heart. "You are more important than my own life. Than anything. No solar is worth living without you in it." The Forgotten Commander was pretty much instalove at first sight and who wouldn't want a sexy vampire looking alien to claim them as their own? Who would say no to a leader wanting to take care of you and provide for you and love up on you until the end of days?

    So I do love a bit of alien romance and this one for me delivered a really great start to this new series.Such a highly imaginative endeavour this was: I adored the descriptive world building and overall alienness of the Morts they for me had almost a reptile feel to them with there forked tongues and paralysing venom. I also really liked the unique vocabulary used throughout: it really added a nice touch to the whole story, made everything seem just a tad more exotic.So this is the story of Bre So I do love a bit of alien romance and this one for me delivered a really great start to this new series.Such a highly imaginative endeavour this was: I adored the descriptive world building and overall alienness of the Morts they for me had almost a reptile feel to them with there forked tongues and paralysing venom. I also really liked the unique vocabulary used throughout: it really added a nice touch to the whole story, made everything seem just a tad more exotic.So this is the story of Breccan and Aria: Breccan Aloisius, the forgotten commander of the planet Mortuus: because of a past disaster his race and planet is all but decimated in numbers, down to only ten Morts and none of these survivors are females.Aria of earth former party girl and actress: when Breccan's Morts intercept five cryo chambers from a passing vessel they feel like there prayers for salvation have finally been answered.So Aria awakens in a strange place with no idea of where she is and it becomes very evident she is not on earth any longer. Aria then realises that these scary looking aliens have an agenda and she along with the other females still in cryosleep are the sole hope for this dying planet's future.So "The Forgotten Commander" is a breeding trope alien romance and I didn't even know that was an actual thing until I embarked upon this book.its told from dual pov Breccan and Aria.Aria though a tad highly strung at times seemed a highly pragmatic sort: making the best of things and able to see the bigger overall picture.She will do what's necessary for her survival and I liked the fact she wasn't really despite her situation a whiner.Breccan for me came across as such a sweetie he really was adorable in all his interactions with Aria and I couldn't help but warm to the sweetly protective vibe he outwardly portrayed.This was also equally amusing and scorching hot in temperature.I really enjoyed myself here and will definitely be reading the next in this series.An observation though before I finish up here: Aria didn't seem to know how she had ended up in cryosleep at least that's the impression I got.I was surprised this wasn't elaborated on further, maybe I just missed something or this is one explanation for a later date it just struck me as odd.I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Forgotten Commander (The Lost Planet, #1).All opinions expressed are entirely my own.Reviewed By Beckie Bookwormhttps://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/www.beckiebookworm.com

    Interesting, but lacking many things.The world they're living on is hell: radiocative, nothing grows on it, predators everywhere... So, how the dying race can get hope only because they found 5 human females? So they, re happy because they can reproduce, but there're some very big problms with that! What will they do if they manage to multiply? Where would they live? What will they eat? It seems too far fetched for me...Also the heroine... She wants to run away from the aliens.

    I'm not going to rate this one because honestly, I HATE sci-fi romances. However, I ADORE K Webster, so I figured if anyone could get me to like a sci-fi romance, it would be her. Alas, nope, I just couldn't get into it. I found it too weird. The whole "forced implantation" thing was creepy as f-ck, and SO not OK on ANY level. On top of that, the heroine was super annoying...c'est la vie!

    I hate to leave negative scale reviews, but I felt an honest review needed to be left for this book. Hopefully the constructive criticism helps the author in the future if she tries this genre again. The better parts of the book:I'm leaving 2 stars instead of one due to the fact the aliens in the book sounded semi attractive and the leading male in this installment has potential, but the real stand out guy in the book is Hadrian. The areas that need improvement, lots of discrepancies: - The PARA I hate to leave negative scale reviews, but I felt an honest review needed to be left for this book. Hopefully the constructive criticism helps the author in the future if she tries this genre again. The better parts of the book:I'm leaving 2 stars instead of one due to the fact the aliens in the book sounded semi attractive and the leading male in this installment has potential, but the real stand out guy in the book is Hadrian. The areas that need improvement, lots of discrepancies: - The PARALYZING SEMEN was HORRIBLE anxiety inducing, NOT a turn on! Seriously, when the male would cum in the female she would be paralyzed for a good while to let the 'seed' take hold. Oh and let's not forget to mention he DID NOT EVEN WARN HER THE FIRST TIME IT WOULD HAPPEN. So not only did she not want sex, it was pretty much along the lines of rape, even though she did not fight him, he still should have warned her! What a jerk! It was ALL about him. Just wanting to breed this 'alien'. She was terrified! And her thoughts of the situation made it clear she did not want sex with him in the beginning and just did not fight him to try and make it easier on her. And then there's paralyzing cum!? Oh gah... NO. - Forced submission / rape vibes. This is so played out in the alien romance genre! Can this be put to rest for a while? Perhaps with actual communication and better dialogue between characters so the males actually understand that in human culture it's not okay, the books feeling would drastically improve. But boy, in alien romance it's like let's rape the females and then when they get upset brush it off and the female just magically gets over it. Uh...no... The female BARELY explained that what he was doing was wrong. And that was AFTER she just gives in and says basically let's just get this over with. So just because you didn't fight, and you still didn't want it at first, it's 'rape' or to make it sound not so scary, 'forced submission' pretty much...but that never really gets the proper conversation or emotional processing that it's due in this book or many others in this genre. And she did not explain it in depth or in a way to make him understand what she was trying to get across to him. Then when Calix (another male character) was touching another female without consent the main male brushed off Aria complaining like it was no big deal. The other male Calix also didn't see the issue. And the female, Aria, made no effort to use the incident as a teaching moment, but ended up showing her butt and stomping off to another area of this 'facility'. - The female Aria did not make hardly ANY effort to stop the experimentation / forced impregnation they kept calling 'implantation' attempts on the other human females in cryo sleep. WTF ? This should have been a hard line drawn in the sand. Instead this main female is all going around getting to know all the guys, having sex after she got over the whole rape vibe etc etc and basically until the end of the book ignores the other females. She made no complaints about the forced implantation attempts. And she's basically okay with all of the women just stuck in cryo. -When she snatches one of the other girls to keep Calix from touching her, she doesn't even have appropriate dialogue to explain to the new girl, Emery, what is going on and does a piss poor job of looking out for her. - She has a miscarriage from her first, while she was sleeping, implantation that ended up failing and there is like one to two lines where she kinda sorta is bothered by that then breezes on over it.... umm... - The planet is apparently not habitable outside of the facility. Well, dang...that's depressing AF. - So they have a spaceship and have space travel, but they didn't just leave that planet and go to one that's habitable instead when the species initially began having trouble? You know like to have a better life...find females instead of stealing them?- Also, if the radiation is that bad that they need suits....how are they safely able to eat the animals they kill sometimes top side? These animals would have significant levels of radiation as well. How are they surviving? Was this just a radiation level in reference to the UV rays that this species could not tolerate? So then is that why the meat was okay? There were just a lot of unanswered questions / details left out. There were just too many negatives in this book. There should definitely be an updated description on this book. And I'm still trying to figure out where all these graveling adoring reviews come from where they never take issue with anything in these romances where the females just cave in to the males and there is next to no emotional processing.

    Despite my absolute, undying love for anything and everything Star Wars, I never thought I’d read a science fiction romance featuring aliens. K.

This Despite my absolute, undying love for anything and everything Star Wars, I never thought I’d read a science fiction romance featuring aliens. K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard somehow convinced me that maybe aliens in romance aren’t as strange as my mind thought, because this series, in all its unusual, non-conforming quirkiness, is actually quite addicting. I was left gobsmacked at my frenzied reading pace of this introduction to this intriguing series, The Lost Planet. “I’ll keep you safe. This solar and every solar after, mortania.” Breccan Aloisius, protective commander to dying aliens, is desperate. When an unexpected disease wittles down his race, leaving ten males isolated within a destitute planet void of life—and females—there’s an immediate urgency to procreate when five female humans appear in cryo-tubes, asleep and unaware of what awaits outside. Aria couldn’t be anymore different than Breccan. She’s feisty, disinterested in becoming a breeding animal for aliens and having them dictate her choices. Underneath her fierceness is someone vulnerable, bruised and damaged after living a life dominated by corrupt agencies and outside pressures. “You are more important than my own life. Than anything. No solar is worth living without you in it.” I loved the desolate, barren world this author duo created. And the theme of desperation, acceptance and new beginnings. Aria teaches Breccan what real love is—the human way—but she’s not without learning several cultural differences herself from these intriguing fork-tongued aliens. If you are searching for something outside your comfort zone; a read featuring aliens beyond your wildest imagination, I recommend picking up The Forgotten Commander. You won't be disappointed with these Morts! Follow me on: Blog | Instagram

I wanted more of those sweet words from Breccan. He was full of a different light when Aria was near and it made his words and actions that much sweeter.

Initial tests are optimistic that these females are a match with the Morts bringing hope. Hope that they can breed the females. Not all is as simple as thought when the first female is brought out of cryosleep. Specien Az-1 refuses to blindly cooperate with being a brood mare to repopulate their planet. She has certain conditions and requirements. With the females as their last hope for their future, Commander Breccan Alosius will do whatever it takes to gain Aria's cooperation. * * * Simplistically, this is a story about an alien race dying out, only ten males left surviving in horrible conditions because of ongoing high levels of radiation. When all looks lost and bleak, enter females, females who can be bred. This book goes into the circumstances surrounding this set up. Breccan & Aria. Each had baggage and angst issues to deal with. Additionally, their circumstances are a stark look at what could happen when humanity fails to invest in protecting their planet and their own bodies. Yet. There's hope. Secondary characters. There is a limited cast of characters as there are only ten males aliens and one female (out of cryosleep). Of course it is a given that each will be featured in a future installment which allows readers to root for their favorite. The epilogue provides a teaser of the next couple, Calix & Emery, who will be next up. As a fan of SciFi and alien romance, I wanted to like this book more than I did. I wanted to immerse myself in the story appreciating it's content. For whatever reason I just didn't. Not sure why except for the feeling that I've read this sort of story line in different fashions, different circumstances multiple times before. A solid read for those who appreciate this author's other works that provides a comfort level feel good story.

Yep, I can definitely do and I did it with a smile on my face and a skip in my step because I found The Forgotten Commander so damn interesting! The alien life, their culture, all the different names and slang terms they had for things we use every day, it was so creative and I loved it! I’ll admit, if K.

Webster wouldn’t have co-wrote this book, I more than likely wouldn’t have read it, just because of the content (sci-fi and aliens)… but I’m soooo glad I did because this book was highly enjoyable. It wasn’t too angsty, it wasn’t emotional, it was simply about aliens breeding with human women to repopulate their dying planet with a hot romance involved. “Stuck on a creepy planet with sexy albino vampire giants with elf ears and it doesn’t totally suck.” But these alien/Mort dudes weren’t that different from humans. The only thing sort of unappealing about them, to me, was their forked tongues, but according to Aria (heroine), she really loooooved the forked tongue, especially down there… if ya know what I’m saying.There are only 10 Mort males left on the planet Mortuus. Almost their entire population was wiped out from a deadly disease. They had all but given up hope until they found human women in deep-sleep ‘cryo-tubes’ on a passing ship and stole them. Aria was the first to wake so it was the Commander who got to claim her first.I loved Aria’s character. She was feisty and she let these sexy alien dudes know that she wasn’t just going to be a breeding cow. Breccan, the commander, had a lot to learn about human females but he adjusted quickly because he was smitten with Aria and all of her little human quirks and would do absolutely anything to please his little alien. The Forgotten Commander was sexy, hot, creative and addicting. I was immediately drawn into this story from the first page and I wish I wouldn’t have had to put it down the few times that I did to do ‘life’, but alas, I have kids to be fed and work to be done. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading a book by Nicole Blanchard before now, but after reading this book and not being able to tell who wrote which part because it was so well-written, I’ll be definitely adding her to my TBR list.This book wasn’t just alien erotica, there was a well-developed story here and one that I was definitely sucked into. The world-building, the characters… I enjoyed all of it and will definitely be continuing with this series because there’s going to be several other hot alien vampires with elf ears, who I all fell in love with, to read about in future books. I definitely recommend this one for a great read!

The primary issue is that the morts are reptilian complete with nogs, skulls, sub-bones, flat noses, and forked tongues. Not hot human-like Aliens. Not humans lost in space aliens, but straight up...aliens.The story is about a dying alien population. There are ten aliens in this world who are lonely and afraid of extinction. So, the solution is to mate with human women. In true happily ever after form, the human h, Aria managed to fall in love with Breccan, the Forgotten Commander.Gross.However, I kept going. At one point, I thought that I needed a little bit of flora to get past the H and his flap ears and flat nose. I would say that I started getting committed to the book around chapter five. I found myself wondering what in the world (universe?) is going to happen in this book?K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard managed to make the most unappetizing male hero...interesting. Listen, Aria is a better woman than I am, because that is one species that just would have gone extinct if they were dependent on me.The storyline explores how a human teaches an alien what love is to humans. In turn, Breccan empowers Aria to be a strong commanding woman.I will admit that I never got over the forked tongue, but I did like the story. The storyline is interesting, weird, and funny. I am impressed that K and Nicole created their own vocabulary for this story. Now that is commitment and speaks to the quality of the writing. I did give four stars because...I can't get over the forked tongue.So, yeah, there are four other women that are cryofrozen. Do the math. There are ten aliens and four available women. LOL I can't wait for the next story!

It was a quick, fun and smexy read that is filled with characters I want to know more about and a world I want to explore.I loved Breccan and Aria. Breccan is definitely the Commander. Protective, decisive and all about looking out for the best interests of his people. He has his faults but isn’t so bull headed that he isn’t able to adjust to a new way of thinking. Aria is a fighter, she had to be in order to make sense of the world she now lives in, and I enjoyed watching as she not only settled into things, but also voiced her own needs and opinions when necessary.Breccan and Aria’s journey was a fun one. It was rocky in the beginning as they both worked to figure the other out, but once they did things evened out. The little bump in the road wasn’t a surprise at all and I liked how it al worked out for them in the end.The writing was engaging and seamlessly done and I could tell that these two authors had a lot of fun creating the world of Mortuus. It’s vibrant and interesting and I really enjoyed how they brought it to life and explained it all without it feeling like an information dump was going on. As for the support cast of characters, Draven and Oz are the two I’m most drawn to, but I’m really looking forward to getting to know each one better and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book and find out what will happen next!Copy provided via IndieSagePR & voluntarily reviewed ~

    I have read a bit of Sci-Fi- romance novels some are hit, some are misses but I have to say this was a hit. K and Nicole bring a different light to the sci-fi range and I liked it. In this series (for now) we get one alien and one female (we usually get a reverse harem theme going on), we have a male Breccan Aloisius who is the commanding officer who has come to terms with never having a future. These men know that they will never see a woman and have children.

When a ship full of women are found they are kidnapped by Breccan and his men in hopes to bring a future to these men and their planet. When Aria wakes up she is not too happy to find herself being kidnapped. At the same time Aria is not in a good place personally so maybe this is for the best if only she would let things ride out. If Aria doesn't take stock of what she has now she might find herself in more danger than she ever has been before. Although these two do find a happy ever after, it does end in a cliff hanger for the next couple. I can't wait to see where the next book goes!

    While there really wasn’t anything “new” in this book - heroine wakes up in alien world where population is dwindling rapidly and they need women as mates, make babies and save their race I really enjoyed this one. It kind of was like Dixon’s IPB in reverse with a hot radioactive planet instead of “not Hoth” but like the first in that series there is good world building, a likeable heroine and a swoon-y hero. Will definitely check out the next ones especially Dravens book (scarred brooding “brok While there really wasn’t anything “new” in this book - heroine wakes up in alien world where population is dwindling rapidly and they need women as mates, make babies and save their race I really enjoyed this one.

    DNF 44% 4th book by this author, and the last!! Has some great reviews but found it to be a silly porn book. Except it had Aliens involved as well as humans, in a breeding program. It was simply too weird; embarrassing. The grotesque descriptions of the monsters would have been terrifying in reality, but there is little that is real in this book. Holes all over the plot, and shallow, wooden, annoying characters. And did I say boring and predictable? I’m definitely in a book slump; nothing worth DNF 44% 4th book by this author, and the last!!

    WowI'm absolutely under shock. Of all the types of stories I could have come to expect from either author, this book as not it. I love how science fiction novels gives author's the opportunity to let their imaginations run wild and the forgotten commander was exactly that. It was captivating, imaginative, unforgettable and I simply cannot wait for the next instalment to find out what's to happen to these Morts and humans.

    Not sure how I feelThis was a hard read to review, although it has redeeming parts I couldn't get over how they took them to just breed, it was disturbing in a way that they were just cattle to these men. The beginning bothered me the most as she's having a miscarriage and blood is running down her leg, they just implanted her with a baby as she slept!

I honest to God couldn't get past that. It bothered me so much. Idk, this read was hard to like with such hard hills to overcome.

    3.5 starsIt was actually interesting to discover a new but a bit similar world and i'm curious about what will happen in the next books. The "love" story itself was meh but the smut was good.

    I know K Webster has always been fascinated by alien books. And when K Webster decided to write it? You know it’s gonna be sooo good! I have to admit this is the second time reading sci-fi books. First one was Ice Planet Barbarians, which was also influenced by K Webster. So yeah, I was not really into sci-fi. However, now I know from reading this book that you can turn some boring topic (to me) into something meaningful and hot!

The Forgotten Commander sucked me into a different world and although at first I was a bit confused (just like the main female character), I quickly got used to foreign terminology and experienced events like an eyewitness.Commander Breccan Aloisius from the planet Mortuus is in a dilemma. His people are on the verge of extinction by a deadly plague and there are no prospects for it to change because the survivors were men only. Until two of his men manage to snatch the cryotubes, in which there are 5 sleeping women. Have the prayers been answered and thanks to these women they’ll be able to extend their race? Although the use of these women for reproductive purposes seems unethical they are their ONLY hope.Damn, I'm totally addicted to this story! I never thought I would swoon over aliens! But how should I not sigh when they are so wonderful ... Breccan is just great! His behavior towards Aria is downright touching. Who would have thought that a creature from another planet has so many human feelings? Determination to save his people. Thoughtfulness about his new betrothed. And love…Aria became a warrior as soon as she woke up on an alien planet. Although she initially agreed with the expectation of an alien of pure instincts of survival it quickly changed under the influence of Breccan's charming personality. Gah, these two! I love them. Although they come from two different species, they are created for each other. And Aria is the perfect woman to stand alongside the leader. She’s strong, determined and doesn’t let herself to be pushed around. The real Madame Commander!I'm completely addicted. I need more books in this series as soon as possible! And I must point out that Draven caught my biggest attention. I think I have a weakness for these crazy types ...ARC received for an honest review.
