Publisher's Summary

A planet at war. Two alphas forced into a political marriage. Attraction that defies all reason and logic.... Or does it?

The Kingdom of Pelugia and the Republic of Kadar have been at war for decades. Peace isn’t popular, but the planet can’t survive without it.

Forced to marry an enemy prince for the sake of peace, Senator Royce Cleghorn doesn’t like his husband, his alpha scent, or his damned pretty blue eyes. More than anything, Royce hates what Haydn makes him become: a primitive alpha cliché, who’ll do anything to mark his territory, even if that territory is his alpha husband. Royce likes omegas; he isn’t into alphas, no matter how pretty their eyes are. It’s just a weird territorial instinct. It has to be.

Prince Haydn has always tried to be the perfect alpha his father wants him to be. He’s the heir to the throne. He’s a war general. He isn’t supposed to bare his throat to an enemy alpha - and it isn’t supposed to feel so good. Everyone knows a marriage between two alphas is a recipe for disaster. He isn’t supposed to crave his husband - their marriage is just a political arrangement, nothing more.

But when disaster strikes and loyalties are tested, which bond will be the strongest: their marriage, or their allegiances?

This book is set in an omegaverse world similar to contemporary Earth, and it contains mating cycles, two men obsessed with each other, and a happily ever after. While mpreg exists in this world, it's only mentioned.

Thrilled to see this on Audible!

Since I was expecting Ms. Hazard’s next audiobook to be Straight Guys Book 3, imagine my surprise that it was Unnatural! Out of her other two series apart from Straight Guys, The Wrong Alpha series is a major favorite of mine. If you’ve read or are familiar with her Calluvia series, there is a character or two that will be familiar to you, although the story does deal with a completely different planet. It is an ABO universe and although the male O’s can become pregnant, there isn’t any mpreg on-page. The ABO’s revolve around the moon cycle that they were born in, with some Alpha’s being able to shift into their animal form. Since neither of the MC alphas are the shifting kind, that’s something that’s more background information for Book Two. Hayden, an Alpha Prince from one kingdom finds himself in a political marriage with a Senator from another kingdom to unify for peace. The Senator, Royce, claims outwardly to be a Beta, but is inwardly something else. Since it’s a well known fact within their world that Alpha-Alpha pairings just do not work out, you can see where the issues arrive. If you’re a fan of the guys in her Straight Guys series and their obsessive behavior, you will definitely love the obsession that grows between Royce and Hayden and the steaminess that ensues. Alessandra Hazard sure knows how to burn up those pages! I think this is my first audiobook with Devlin Wylde and his voice was perfect! I actually like him more than Joshua MacRae, even though I did have to speed up narration to 1.3x for it to be more comfortable for me to listen to. Highly recommend!

one of my favorites

I have read this book twice on Kindle and then listened to it on Audible! I love this story. I hope they get the Caluvia Royals series on Audible, too.

wow that's a deep voice

I listened to this book after reading book 2 (twice). I like the story quite a bit, although not as much as book 2. Hayden didn't always seem as sharp and strategic as you would expect from a General in the army. He'd make a good high school social studies teacher. He wasn't stupid. He didn't do stupid things. but he wasn't planning ahead either.

In book 2 we get to know the king better and understand what a truly horrible man he is, which makes Hayden's behavior around his father make more sense, but it sometimes just comes off as weak here.

The narrator's voice is so low that, I kid you not, it made my car speakers buzz with the bass. I had to switch to headphones. At times his pacing plodded a bit. I turned up the speed to 1.10 and enjoyed listening more.

With a voice that low, his female characters don't sound especially natural, but there aren't very many female characters, and those that are don't have many lines. I didn't find it problematic.

Would I listen to it again? Yes, if only to prepare to listen to Feral when it comes out. That story is HOT, and there is a sense of urgency that is often missing in this book. This book does explain the political situation on the planet--which is assumed knowledge in book 2, so some things make more sense to me now.

So. 4/5 stars over all. Recommend. I hope Feral is out soon.

Brilliant Story and Narration

Don't you love it when you find something or/and someone new, you like? Yes! Same for me! Today , I "found" Devlin Wylde , narrator extraordinaire.

His sultry and delicious narration of Unnatural hit me in all the right places. At a speed of 1.30x Devlin Wylde's performance was intimate , engaging , and oh so hot. His voices for Haydn and Royce fit their personalities , were distinctive. Were even better than the ones in my head. Audio production and editing was well done too.

Unnatural is an entertaining audio , I had a enjoyable time listening to it. It has a layered and detailed world building , very interesting lore and myths . This audio is loosely interconnected to Alessandra Hazard other Paranormal Omegaverse series Calluvia. Another excellent read/listen.

Few of the many things makes this story so replayable and exciting are the unique plotlines, social hierarchy, diversity of characters and their unique sexuality traits. As well as, the high levels of steam , romance and the banter ; and the low angst and drama levels.

Yes, recommend it.
Yes, will be re-listening.
Yes, it's worth all the credits.

Great plot and sexy narration!

Really loved this book, definitely was a great listen, narrator had really great voices for the characters.

Minor Spoiler-Only thing I found irritating was the constant anxiety the main characters had about the other character not liking them back. It persists practically throughout the entire book yet they're fullq on husbands within like the first 15 minutes. Let's move things along please!

Good for a quickie Erotic story.

Good junk food to pass the time. I didn't particularly like or believe in the relationship at all. Honestly know little to nothing about these characters other then their physical attraction to eachother. I really hate when characters fall for eachother purely for Erotic needs and then it's tried to be sold as love.

As an erotica it was fun though, the situation all felt familiar with this type of omegaverse world trying something not done as often. The spicy moments are acceptable length with some variety each time.

The world building is weird, it feels really ambitious but obviously not enough time to really get into the weeds with any of it. The plot and world all felt like background noise due to the lack of commitment. Didn't bother me too much though as this book was very obviously just an erotica with all that servicing just to build up a fantasy.

Overall this is good for a quickie and immediate need for entertainment or for something spicy. Probably won't stick with you for any amount of time after finishing it though. That's ok though, not every book needs to be that.

Narrator takes himself way too seriously

The narrator has a deep voice which is fine but he puts on too much of the deep gravely nonsense and it just seems fake. Also pronounces Alpha as Alfer and it is driving me crazy! How do you get a job as a voice actor when you can’t pronounce words correctly?

Loved the chemistry between the MCs

This was my first “omegaverse” book. I’m not sure what I expected, but Wow! What an great introduction to the genre.

The narrator’s deep voice was mesmerizing. I played it at speed .9x, and that made it all the more emotional.

The story and writing were beautiful. Highly recommend.

Unnatural great start to series

Enjoyed story, loving that Alessandra Hazard books are being released on Audio! My only issue was with a couple of audio errors. Early on in the story there was a sentence that didn't make sense, I rewinded it several times. Then it happened again a few chapters later. So I downloaded the ebook to work it out. I discovered that the narrator had swapped the main characters names around. Nothing huge, still thoroughly enjoyed story, it just stopped my flow a few times.

Fantastic story, seriously steamy audio!

When the Galactic Council demand that the two perennially warring countries on Eila make peace before Eila is allowed to join the Union of Planets, pressure is applied to Prince Haydn of Pelugia and Senator Royce Cleghorn to marry for the sake of their countries. Given that they’re both alphas, the marriage looks doomed before it starts! I really enjoyed this: the plot was engaging; Haydn & Royce were sympathetic, well-written characters; and their struggles to accept each other despite their biology were fascinating. Alessandra Hazard has built a modern fantasy ABO world with helicopters, computers, and mobile phones, with more advanced technologies used off-world. I totally disagree with other reviewers who claim there is a cheating scene, both Haydn & Royce discussed and agreed on the third party and both were present - an open relationship moment but definitely not cheating. OMG, British audio narrator, Devlin Wylde’s voice is so perfectly deep and resonant it sent shivers up my spine. I can’t wait to hear more audiobooks by him!
