NEW RELEASE/ARC REVIEW: Taken to Kor: A SciFi Alien Romance (Xiveri Mates Book 5) Kindle Edition by Elizabeth Stephens

Taken to Kor: A SciFi Alien Romance (Xiveri Mates Book 5) Kindle Edition by Elizabeth Stephens


Rhork. He’s a space pirate. The bad kind. But he’s also been my only source of company for the past rotation that I’ve been held captive.
Halfway across the galaxy, I’m happy to have finally escaped and found more humans…well, I was.
But now, I’m not so sure that people are so much better than pirates. And I’m very sure that I’ll need Rhork’s help to get out of this. But Rhork thinks I’m a defective female because of my twisted leg. What if he’s not willing to give it?
Communicating with the human female for almost a rotation was, in retrospect, a poor choice. Now, she seems to be the ever-present voice in my head, distracting me, making me want things I shouldn’t.
To make her a pirate.
To show her the universe.
And most of all, to keep her for myself.

Taken to Kor is a full-length (95k words) SciFi space opera romance featuring an alien pirate who looks like an alien and a plus sized heroine with drive and heart. Enemies-to-lovers who are also fated-mates are common staples of all Xiveri Mates books, which each end with their own special HEA. I recommend reading this book after book 4.

My Review….

Rhork is a space pirate, but he’s no pirate with a heart! He has no redeeming qualities!

Deena feels like she’s a freak! A bum leg and wide hips have knocked her confidence! But the promise of a new life gives her the push she needs….

I’ve not read the other four books in this series, and it does feel like I’m missing a little background! But other than that, it’s a pretty good read. Deena and Rhork are just a great couple. On the outside he gives the impression he’s not fond of Deena, but in fact he’s fascinated by her, he sees her potential as both a pirate and his mate. Watching her with other men is not an option for him, but with her lack of self esteem, it looks like he’s got his work cut out to convince her that she’s someone special.

My first book written by this author, and I’m intrigued enough to want to go back to the start of this series. I want to know more of Rhork and Deena, I want to read how they met. Poor Deena hasn’t had it easy, her grandmother is a nasty piece of work, not really caring about Deena, and when she locks her away, I’m hoping the grandmother gets her comeuppance! Rhork gives off this horrible male vibe, but as I’ve only read him in this book I can’t really comment. But reading his reactions to Deena gives me hope he’s not all bad!

It’s a fast paced action book with enough hot moments to keep everyone happy. Well written and cleverly thought out. The genres might be well used ones (friends to lovers/ space aliens/ fated mates) but the twist this author puts on them makes a welcome change.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src=""
