Mandra Reykill never thought he would find his true mate so unexpectedly. His dragon recognizes her immediately and falls in love with the delicate beauty, and his symbiot is enchanted with her gentle touch and kindness. Unfortunately, all Mandra gets is a stubborn female refusing to acknowledge his claim to her and determined to escape from him at the first available moment. To top it all off, his nice, orderly life is turned upside down when he finds his home - and his warship - suddenly infested with creatures from all over the galaxy. Now he must find a way to convince Ariel he is the alien for her while trying to keep his sanity. But Mandra is not the only alien wanting to claim Ariel; another has set his sights on her and is just as determined. Can Mandra convince the stubborn beauty that they have a future together?

Another Great Audio Book in the Valdier Series!
Would you consider the audio edition of Ambushing Ariel to be better than the print version?
I like the audio book edition just as much as the print version but for different reasons, I really feel as if I've been "entertained" when listening to the audio book but the paperback edition is lovely, the cover and binding is beautiful and the font size isn't too small it's a great addition to my collection.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ambushing Ariel?
I really enjoyed when Mandra's dragon destroyed his living quarters trying to catch and eat Ariel's pets - David Brenin did a really good job of reading this.
Which character – as performed by David Brenin – was your favourite?
Has to be Mandra when he's talking/arguing with his dragon.
Any additional comments?
You can't go wrong with a S.E. Smith Book, I've liked every series I've read of her's and I think I've read most of her SciFi Romance's.

Love this series more with each book!
There are some who may not like the recaps of the beginning scenes, I love them. You get to see events over again with new eyes. Each of the characters has a very unique take on the events. This book does jump things forward a touch. I adore all these stories and seeing how they interlock. It is great seeing things come together and finding out what couples were together when events occurred. You also have that timeline to follow, so you anticipate things to come.
I really liked animal lover Ariel, but there are times she takes things a bit far, still, she is extremely likeable and you can tell she means well. When she isn't bringing home every stray she is a fierce warrior. Girlfriend kicks serious butt!! I love her matched with Mandra and all that goes into their romance! Such opposites at times, but they really work!
This book is uber hawt!! I am talking plenty of detail for the mating and also sexing while in dragon forms. Good golly that is a smexy read!! Get the ice cream and cold shower ready!
David Brenin once again uses his scrumptious voice to bring the story to life. He is a delicious treat for the ears!! Definitely one of my favorites. He has a wonderful energy and pace that fits the book perfectly. I am thrilled he is staying with the whole series.
The overall plot progresses more with this story and brings up closer to the confrontation with their uncle. We also meet more supporting characters and gear up for some battles. I am very eager to see what will happen with Carmen, as her story will definitely be emotional. This series has been a whirlwind that never fails to entertain.

Same Story, Different Character & Perspective!
I really like the Dragon Lords of Valdier series; however, the beginning of the each book is retelling the same plot but from a different captured women's perspective. If it wasn't for S.E. Smith's creativity, strong characters, and steamy love scenes, I'm not sure if hearing the same plot from a different perspective would hold my attention, but I've come this far, and determine to listen to the rest of the series.
Love David Brenin's performance. He's got a great voice and does an excellent job on both the female and male characters.
Well worth the time and credit for any Sci-Fi/PNR romance fan!
