The would-be heroine... 

Aeron wants nothing more than to live out her very long, solitary life in a small metal room listening to communications for the Federation Military. It's not glamorous. It's not even charming. But it's safe and there's no chance of getting hurt.

When she intercepts a communication about an impending attack on the Qurilixian people, she has no choice but to act. No one at the Federation seems inclined to do anything and it's up to her to save them. Desperate, she enlists the help of her degenerate sister, whose only solution is to trick Aeron into signing up as a prospective bride to the primitive aliens she's trying to rescue.

The man who did not need saved... 

Dragon-shifter nobleman Lord Bron, is not looking forward to his seventh failed attempt at a marriage ceremony. But when he sees the lovely Aeron he knows his years of waiting have finally paid off. Fate has blessed him with a life mate...

Or have they?

His new bride is insistent she's not there for marriage, but for a mission. Dragon shifters mate for life and it's up to Bron to convince her they are fated to be, or he'll risk spending the rest of his days alone.

Goddess of Chaos ,

“… my life started to end when I came here.”

Aeron is a woman on a mission, right up until her new husband decides to protect her from everything, including the responsibility she came to tackle. He's in for a surprise if he thinks this meek woman will surrender her cause to him.

Bron had given up on finding a wife, but the gods have other plans -- if he can manage to behave and follow tradition.

This done in one book starts a new overarching arc, and ties in to the previous stories, expanding the world we know, and once again highlighting just how strong and powerful the wives of alpha men are in their own right.

I was gifted with a copy of this book and chose to share my review.

Aeron and Bron

Aeron works in the communications analysis for the Federation. She received some information about possible genocide attack on the planet Qurilixen. The Federation is not interested in her information. So she does want she needs to do to protect the planet. She has her sister book her transportation to Qurilixen. But, it is on the Galaxy Brides transport. She doesn’t want to be a bride. She is going there to relay important information.
Bron is a Draig Duke. He is the king’s nephew. He and several members of the royal family is participating in the Breeding Festival. He had not found his bride in the other nine festivals. He was being optimistic. He wasn’t playing attention to who had caused his crystal stone necklace to glow.
Aeron almost managed to escape being picked as a bride. She was getting ready to head to the transport ship when a almost naked masked man approached her. She was tricked into removing his mask and being married. She has to get the information about the possible attack to the king.
Now they both have secrets that affects their marriage. Also, Bron’s dismissive attitude about Aeron is hurtful to her. They have lots of obstacles to overcome.
Has a HEA.
This is part of the series of the Galaxy brides and Qurilixian royal male shifters.

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Fun romp.

When Aeron discovers a plot she is determined to save the Draig but her only option to deliver the warning is to join the Galaxy Bride transport. She’s determined to stay on mission but Bron, who recognizes her as his mate, it determined to change her mind. Fun romp loaded with misunderstandings and a great romance.
