Summary

As a paramedic, Alaina Stafford knew that every shift would have its surprises. But being abducted by alien slave traders? There's no preparation for that kind of surprise.
Before she can wrap her head around it, Alaina is sold at a high-dollar auction to be the new "donara" for a powerful, wealthy Errai family. It doesn't take long to find out what a "donara" is...it's the reward for the gladiator who wins in the arena.
Alaina is to be the victor's prize.
Vega is the house favorite among the slave warriors, and crowds come from across the galaxy to watch him in the arena. Unlike the other fighters, he's not swayed by the promise of winning this strange human woman. His real prize - his freedom - is within his grasp, and he won't be distracted from the chance to return home by some fragile but exotic beauty from a planet called Earth.
But there's a vicious political power play at hand, and both Vega and Alaina stand to lose everything. Thrown together and forced to rely on each other, they soon realize that love may actually be worth dying for.

Wooden

What disappointed you about Alien Conquest?

The narrator was so wooden that it ruined what already was a poor story. The main characters were annoying & without personality.

Would you ever listen to anything by Scarlett Rhone again?

Nope ...this book has really put me off.

What didn’t you like about Addison Spear’s performance?

She had only monotone mode as she 'read' this story. I say read because that is exactly what it felt like. She did well with the names but it was wooden & annoying.

Any additional comments?

If you read my reviews you will see that I am generally not hard to please. For me to rate something so badly is unusual. This story itself was pretty interesting but it was ruined by weak writting. The heroine was 'undecided' & went from wet to fierce & back again. I was getting whiplash from her sudden mood swings. The sex was anything but hot. Had a different narrator read this you probably could have saved it but the combination of poor writting & wooden narratives have left this in the awful I will return it pile.

SUCH A HAPPY SURPRISE

Any additional comments?

After Ruby Dixon's Alien Barbarians got me hooked on Alien Romance ebooks, I've been trying out audiobooks in the genre attempting to find a series/author that I like. Most of them fall short in the story department BUT THIS ONE!! Scarlett is a new author to me, and now I need to hit up her backlist because WOW!!! WOW! The premise was DIFFERENT - really, really good, these two falling in love but... they are slaves, stuck in a power struggle between "masters" and have very little in their own control. Gladiators fighting for their freedom, their nations - seriously, major props for layering an INTERESTING story to go along with the romance!!

This book could have gone REALLY dark, and since I am a dark romance fan, I would have been happy for it to go that way, but it didn't venture far into that territory, though the subject matter was much more serious than I was expecting it to be AND I WAS INCREDIBLY PLEASED FOR THAT! Again, GREAT concept, the author wrote this story beautifully, the narration was good, I've enjoyed Addison Spear's work before and will again. I AM SO HAPPY TO FIND A NEW AUTHOR YAAAAAY! This audio was an Audiobook Boom listing, and I requested it hoping for an enjoyable couple of hours; I got MORE than I hoped for, I LOVED it!

FINALLY, A CONFLICT OTHER THAN BETWEEN THE LOVERS

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Expecting little, I received more! This was actually quite enjoyable. I was particularly pleased to find the lead (female) character's antagonist was also female. A pleasing change from the genre's normal "Me Tarzan, You Jane" conflicts. Good HEA ending with a (maybe) too lengthy epilogue.

No complaints about Addison Spear's narrative. It was non-distracting with good cadence

ONE PROUD THUMB'S UP!
