This fairy-like story is about second born fae Prince Alder who is getting married to the second born Princess Zami of the Planet of Rats. Neither want to honor this arranged marriage.

Zami plans to help Prince Alder so together with Rekkit and Eoin, they make a plan. Does Prince Alder escape in this engaging very short story?
Suddenly Taken by Milly Taiden and Ava Hunter: This was really short, but I laughed and just wanted to read more about the adventures I am sure these two will have together. I like that she was just an average girl, bartending, and in walks this gorgeous big masculine guy. Just eye candy all around, and it just got better from there.
Tacori by L.P. Peace: I had read the first novella 'Varimar' and couldn’t wait for more books with the Klevians. Tacori did not disappoint! I loved the interactions with the H and h, but the ship's AI had me cracking up. It really added a fun, interesting layer to the story.
Alien Most Wanted: Caged Beast by Honey Phillips: Amanda and Riker were fantastic! They had instant chemistry, and I liked how the story started quick-paced since it was a novella. I look forward to more stories set in this setting.
Rescued from the Depths by Ella Maven: Another altered Drixonian is just as good as all the other books. I would love this one to be a full-length novel because I fell in love with the hero, Quist. I mean, he has tentacles and gills....yeah tons of fun to read, and I loved the action and how the Quist helps Sierra right from the start.
Skoar by Ava Ross: I mean, who doesn't love the Driegon's storyline. In this novella, Skoar meets his fated mate and has one day to convince her of love and happiness on a planet far from her family, friends, and all she is familiar with. Layla was kind and funny, and I found her confusion and doubts genuine, and I was so happy to read their HEA.
All in all, I highly recommend this collection of Sci-Fi Alien Romances. I love when collections like this come along so I can see if I like the writing of other authors I haven't read before. Grab a copy and have fun too!
My sample story for the ARC I received was 🌎Earth 4040, also entitled Exiled, by Eva Priest 📚which will lead to a new series📚 of that name.
Battle Rage of the Gladiator🐺🔪🔫💪
Ryne💃💋 a human woman wrongly convicted of a crime, is taken from 🌎Earth, also with a large number of other young, attractive women. Supposedly they are being transported to a prison planet, but Ryne💃💋 begins to think they will be sold somewhere as slaves.
Along the way, the ship🚀 is attacked and is going to crash. Getting all the other women into escape pods, she waits too long, and her pod and the dying ship🚀 are pulled into the gravity well of an unknown, uncharted planet🌍!
Taurik🐺🔪🔫💪 is among the Alpha male only inhabitants of this hidden planet🌍 that was once a private prison planet. He was once a gladiator. The Alphas👹 took over the planet🌍 and killed the guards. Now the planet 🌍has been forgotten. They do monitor a radar screen and pick up the pod and ship🚀 coming through the atmosphere.
Rushing to the scene, Taurik🐺🔪🔫💪 discovers Ryne💃💋, and decides to hide her in his cabin. He soon realizes she is an omega!
What kind of fight over her between alphas will ensue if and when the other alien men👹 on the planet find out she is there?!
ARC Provided by Booksprout 🌱
I got this ebook from Amazon 📚 for 99¢.
This anthology provides many hours of sci-fi🚀 romance💕 reading pleasure. I liked that I could read an entire story in a half hour or so, then come back to the book later to read another story.

Skarde basically comes to as the pod he is crashes to the ground. He is having THE worst day of his life as the vegetation even tries to eat him, well he is having the worst day until he isn't. The doctor that they have called in to help him heal from the feral forest sets all his runes alight. She is his fated mate! Rachel is totally confused by the critic messages that her Aunt is giving her but thoroughly overwhelmed when a greek god, sorry Vikingr, gets thrown at her to fix. She finds him charming and little bit intense. The misunderstanding about mates and marriage is great as it the interruption by the assistant. Reallt fab short read.
Glow Sticks - Mia Harlan
This is hilarious. A great short read perfect for a lunch break escape. I love the drunk tattoo meaning that Kira has on her rear. The glow sticks especially. Note to self, so not drink when reading!
Kira feels that life is passing her by and she doesn't want to live with regrets. She decides to volunteer herself for the games in which she will be won as a prize, little realising the extent of what she has signed herself up for! Three brothers decide that Kira is theirs - Troza, Bhogan and Xereso. They will leave nothing to chance but will it be enough to win fair maiden? Truth be told none of these brothers seem to have a faint anything, let alone heart!
Warrior in Chains - Luna Jade
Tis is great short story. There are some wonderful descriptions of the world and how it came to be like that. Just enough so you have the knowledge, not too much that it overtakes the romance and not to the detriment of the tale either. Zorina is potentially the last of her kind. To survive she has been hiding out in the desert wastes, once fertile and lush plain. She has been sneaking into a fort to take food and water. There she has seen Orion, chained up like a guard dog that you don't quite trust to keep you safe. As he helped her she is determined to help him back. Will this alliance lead to more than they could have ever hoped to achieve alone?
Seized by the Alien Beserker - Lucee Joie
Love it. He knows that he has been jacked up on drugs and he has no way of stopping it but he also knows that Erica is his one. Despite all the aggression he still has the ability to be gentle with her which speaks volumes. Erica, while she doesn't believe in the fated mates, still has an institual pull to Grim. Terrying as he seems there is something more there and as he helps her escape he feels like home.
Skoar - Ava Ross
I have to say I loved this. I love the Driegons full stop anyway but where Skoar gets his words in a muddle and just how sweet and funny he is. Trees of palm, bless him. Steamy moments aside this is a fun and gentle romance really. Layla is covering for her sister to be a tour guide for the driegon ambassadors, she sees Skoar and likes him from the start. Skoar recognises her as his fated mate but what to do about that. They only have a day. Is a day enough to decide your future?
Tacori - L.P Peace
Tacori is suspicious of humans and with good reason. They destroyed a ship sent to Earth on a diplomatic mission and now deny all knowledge of the sacriledge. They are deceitful and cannot be trusted. Tacori takes the role he has been given by his king seriously. He is sent to go over a human ship which has appeared in their quadrant but whlie onboard the ship is attacked by another race. A pod is pulled in by his own ship and when he opens it he finds a human. The thing is the more he speaks with the human the more it seems that there might be more to it all than he thought before. Evelyn has travelled much with her diplomat family and she now has taken on the same role. She hopes that she can uncover the unfounded reason for the hatred the Klevians have of humans but before she can her ship is attacked. She wakes on a Klevian vessel with a downright growly Tacori. She desperately wants to get her crew back and the crystal which has some clue as to what happened in the past. Can the two enemies work together to do this? Definitely no touchy though, none at all!
I know a lot of people will see Tacori as an unworthy hero at the start but then if you think about what he has been taught and the misundertsandings along the way not so far-fetched really. I loved the descriptions and details of the other races and planets. Need to know what happens next now though! I am bad at waiting!
Ice Planet Prison - Alexis Osborne
Keira has been sent to prison for a crime that she did commit however the circumstances of it and reasons behind it should not merit what has happened to her. She tries to keep her head down and work but that gives the rest of the populous the feeling that she is above them. She's just trying to survive. You can't change a lifetime of jumping to the wrong conclusions. Ylur can see that Keira should not be there, so she is very different to the feel of the others but what to do about it? When there is a prison break he convinces Keira to go with him. Has Keira swapped one prison for another? They are so very different, can they get past the prejudices?
I don’t know about you but I always find it difficult to review anthologies not because they aren’t great book but because they are. It’s simply down to the fact that they are
filled with many great stories created by a group of talented authors. So my review is of a single story written within this book.
What a cool story. Kira makes the decision to change her life and change it does. More than she thought possible. The guys than force their way into her life are perfect for her.
The rest of the book looks good, with a mix of prequels, previews and other related shorts. Based on this one, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of them!
If you're looking to find a new author or series of books to love, this collection is a good way to go about finding them.
Loved some of them, hated a few and found a couple just a bit "meh"
