Marked For Risk: An Alien Fated Mates Romance
She thought Cupid's arrow would never find her… love sent a missile instead.
Being the onboard matchmaker for an interstellar dating cruise isn't the most exciting job in the world, but that's fine. Joy likes things to be calm and orderly. Then the ship gets attacked, and her captain orders her into an escape pod with two VIPs and instructions to keep everyone alive.
Crashing on an unknown planet is one excursion she never planned for. The wildlife is dangerous, the terrain is treacherous, and the only help available comes in the form of a tall, horned alien with the sex appeal of a rockstar and a stubborn streak wider than the Milky Way.
He's certain she belongs to him. She's convinced he's crazy. She's got a long list of reasons why it could never work, but the big, sexy alien has his charms… and he's willing to use them all to get what he wants. Her.
After years of helping others look for love, this might be Joy's chance to find it for herself… but only if she's willing to take the risk.
**Buckle up. This sci-fi romance contains an alien with fur, fangs, horns, and a very possessive attitude when it comes to the woman he's claimed for his own.
Marked For Risk (Crashed and Claimed #5) by Susan Hayes
What a very beautiful story of Risk and Joy . After the crash when Risk found Joy he knew she was his . This was a short story but gave so much . I can’t wait for the other books coming to release .
Had to read it straight through
This story is so much bigger than its page count. Finally we get some background on what happened to the spaceship the women were on. The fated mate subtext is one of my favorite tropes, but the rest of their challenges makes this read exciting. Joy has overcome blindness, is scarred, and resigned to be alone. Risk seems to be more pragmatic than the other fer’el, but no less protective. I appreciate the subtle differences between the brothers in arms. This is a great tale, it’s fun and romantic and true sci-fi.
A delightful story!
Yes, it’s insta-love, and I love it! Risk and two of his friends plan to rescue women who crashed. Risk is more organized than his impetuous pals. I love that Risk and Joy recognize that instant attraction, and act on it. I think Joy is awesome! She’s survived huge challenges in the past, and is not helpless, by any means. I got a kick out of Risk’s friends and the other ladies they rescued, too. I can’t wait to see more of this fantastic series!
