Rescued by the Alien Prince: Celestial Mates (The Alva) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

why not get off Earth. It may be her only chance at survival.
She is processed and told she has a perfect mate, a prince on the planet Alva. And, off she goes.
Only when she arrives, it is not the price she was expecting. His name is Malathin and he is not very nice. He takes her not to house Viir, home to Naefaren, but to House Saren and locks her in a beautiful bedroom. She tricks a guard and makes her escape, but is injured. Naefaren is thrilled to have her back in House Viir. Major House Viir holds regular meetings with the other Major and Minor Houses to discuss trade and now defenses. They set up a means to signal one another when there is trouble. Meanwhile their houses are all thriving and their people more prosperous than ever.
The only problem is the rapidly declining birthrate. Those that have Earth brides have no problem conceiving children and more are applying to Celestial Mates, but Ling finds out that the women too want a chance at a home with children. Being a politician she plans on making that one of her priorities. She is rapidly learning the Alvan language and regularly attends the all male meetings attended by the coalition of Major and minor houses. She is learning a lot and occasionally adds to the discussions. She is keeping a notebook on her ideas for improvements. Her husband, Naefaren, used to complete control is amazingly understanding.
After they finally mate, she can feel hi5s thoughts, and he hers. It is a true match.
The world-building is done well and although there are more trials for Ling and Naefaren, they make it to their HEA. I rated this book a solid 5 stars!
As a Senator on Earth, Ling has been fighting to save what little "green space" is left. When it becomes obvious that people are willing to kill to get hold of the land, Ling runs for her life. She ends up at a Celestial Mates office where she is paired with Naefaren and transported to Alva. Ling's arrival on Alva doesn't go as planned and she finds herself hostage in a political move. Will Naefaren be able to save her? What will happen between the Houses now? I love this series, This story introduces some new Princes. It also voices an interesting question "What about the females? Don't they deserve a chance to meet their Pari?". Hmmm....possible future books?
Whilst trying to lay low she ends up within Celestial Mates office and finds herself matched to an alien Prince- surely she'll be safe on another planet?
Prince Naefaren Viir is a progressive and popular leader with his House, just not with all of his fellow Major House Princes! He has applied to Celestial Mates for a bride but is incensed when she is kidnapped on her way to him. When she manages to get away and ends up injured, Naefaren is on the edge of war with the Prince who dared interfere with his intended Pari!
Naefaren is a caring, sharing kind of Prince and wants to have more inclusive ruling with his subjects. Ling, with her background in politics is just what he needs in a strong, capable and articulate bride. Great read.
