Publisher's Summary

I’ve come to Earth to hunt down a killer, not find a mate. But then I see her, and all I can think is...mine. Just one dangerous problem: My enemy knows she’s here...and he wants her for himself.

Cassie Anderson has been an orphan since the age of four. Left on her own, she grew up a hardworking, pragmatic woman of the Montana Territory, her steady employment at the Selby boarding house the only life she knows. When strange, sensual dreams drive her from her bed, her body heavy with desire and the scar on her palm burning, Cassie isn’t sure what to think. When the handsome stranger tempting her each night with stolen kisses and irresistible caresses suddenly appears in the flesh, she believes she’s truly lost her mind.

Maddox of Everis was born a hunter. Second son to a powerful ruling family, he volunteers for the dangerous journey to a faraway, primitive planet called Earth. His mission? To track down an evil foe responsible for his twin sister’s death. He’s come ready for the hunt, prepared to kill, if necessary, but he is not prepared for the mating mark on his hand to burn with sexual fire. Shocked but desperate to find his mate, Maddox will do whatever it takes to protect her from his enemy. He expects to find a mate eager to welcome him into her bed. But Cassie is an Earth woman, an orphan who has no idea who or what she is...not a simple cowgirl, but a descendant of ancient warriors who once colonized Earth.

Cassie is a powerful shock to his system, a woman he will do anything to possess. But when he tells her the truth, that he’s an alien bounty hunter and she’s his marked mate, she refuses to believe him. That is, until the dangerous madman he’s traveled across the galaxy to hunt finds her as well. Suddenly it’s not just Maddox’s skillful kiss forcing Cassie to rethink everything she thought she knew, but an evil alien bent on possessing her for himself. She’ll have to trust Maddox with both her life and her heart if they’re going to survive.

Couldn't get past the cheesy dirty sex talk

I think there is a story here, but I really could not get past the dirty sex talk. It was if the writer was trying to shock me with how dirty they could make the sex scenes. I have read more Forums that were more titillating than the horrible writing here. I assume the reader was horribly embarrassed for audible. I will not be purchasing anymore of this writers books.

Another sexy series.

If you've read any Grace Goodwin novels, you pretty much know what you're getting into. Another fun book in her galaxy. Fun to switch it up to take place on Earth this time.

I like to think of these as 'smutty in a good way'. But hey, everyone has their own boundary as far as what's tasteful or enjoyable to read. (Doesn't apply to this story, but as much as I love finishing an entire series, I just couldn't make it through the Goodwin novels with multiple partners.) Fair warning.

Loved the Story

I enjoyed the story line even though I was not sure I wanted to read about the time period. However, I truly enjoyed the narrative’s voices.

Wonderful

The voice actor was awesome! His voice is very adaptive and androgynous so the female characters don’t feel stifled or awkward! I loved this story and plot! You really never can guess what will happen next.

This 1 was horrible

This one should have said it took place in the pioneer past. All the other books were in the near future. Not in the frontier past. Terrible!

Least favorite of the series

I started with the other IB books which I really like. Although their are all couple of hot scenes, this one just doesn't have the same level of spice.

Just ok

I love Grace G’s books but foe some reason I didn’t care for this one. I could t decipher between the voices. The narrators didn’t change his voice. He just talked louder.

Set in the Montana Territory

Ok first. I got used to Mr. Macrae and even liked him. Though at times you had to pay attention to know who was speaking - which I find distracting.

That said, the only other thing I ever find frustrating about these books is the restating of the thinking or emotions several dozen times. I get it. We do it in our heads. I don’t need to be reminded repeatedly how a person feels or their motivation. A couple times yes, absolutely! We all get distracted. Even explaining how that character sees an event differently than others might— GG does this very well!! It adds depth to the story and moves it along so we don’t need the whole repeat repeat. But no matter how many repeats, and no matter how many times I wonder if it’s to fill a word count. I still really like the story.

I’m not sure

It wasn’t the best, not sure if it was the story or the narrator but I found it really hard to keep listening and finish the book.

another fun alien romance

the narration needed speeding up as Joshua was really dragging this one out and the long pauses were annoying.
You could definitely make a drinking game out of everytime you heard the word mate or understand.
It took 8 chapters for Maddox just to convince Cassie to leave the cottage with 2 massacred bodies in it... with the internal dialogue on repeat for the first half of the book it certainly made the story drag on, it got better after Chapter 13...

Credit to the narration

While the narrator did a good job, the story was a let down. Cassie came across as dumb and stubborn. She keeps saying she doesn't understand but when told the truth she refuse to believe. Even when shown proof she still refuse to believe...her simple brain too dense to comprehend. Keeps repeating the same line "I don't understand " ...The story became so frustrating to listen to that I couldn't finished it.

Little slow on the narrators side

Decent story. I think I would of liked reading this one more then listening to it. The narrator was extremely slow. I ended up turning the speed up to x2 just to get the story. At normal speed I found myself losing focus on the story alot due to the narrators slow reading. I did enjoy the story it was fun. Not alot to it but I did like it. Spicy screens were great lots of detail. Liked the spanking too lol. Looking forward to reading more in the series.

The Earth visitors!

Excellent wild west with a SciFi twist. Book one with no book two at this stage says the Author. All of Grace's stories are very worth while buying and reading though.
