Trapped. Tortured. Only she can save him from the Hive.
Vice Admiral Niobe has resisted the temptation of the Interstellar Brides Program for years, certain there is no male in the universe willing to sacrifice his vision of a perfect life to be with her. Shocked to be matched to her father's home world of Everis, she transports, expecting to find an eager mate waiting for her. Instead, she arrives within a secret Hive integration center to find him resisting a merciless enemy.
Elite Hunter Quinn might have been captured by the Hive, but he'll sacrifice anything to save the mate he never expected... never imagined would appear like an angel in the middle of hell. A warrior in her own right, Niobe's too stubborn to leave him behind. And even if they escape the Hive, their personal scars run deep. Battle and bloodshed are easy. But healing a wounded warrior's heart? That may prove impossible.

Hunted (Interstellar Brides Book 17)- Grace Goodwin
The Interstellar Brides Series is amazing and each new book brings fresh stories, new awesome characters and amazing action, hot romance. The world building for this whole series is just mesmerizing, especially with the multitude of planets, spacecraft, battleships, while remaining true to the many different types of aliens (males) , their attributes and customs.
I really applaud the author for having a heroine who was not only a bit older but also held one of the highest positions in the “Coalition”. She is also half Evarian, the race known as “Elite Hunters”. I love this race , their independence from the coalition and their amazing talents. The males are very sexy very alpha not just huge strong warriors.
Admiral Niobe finally takes the Bride Matching Test after her friends plead with her during a girls weekend. She finds herself mated to Elite Hunter Quinn but is transported into a trap from the Hive.
With the war with the Hive continuing to go on as part of the series and server all recurring characters from previous books each additional storyline continues to engulf the reader more and more into these worlds.
It was also special to see the acceptance of Niobe’s professional career and her need to continue to serve as admiral, not to just settle down and have babies with her new mate. Her mate, Quinn goes beyond what an Elite Hunter would do to make sure they can be together and have a fulfilling HEA.
