Axxeon King’s Captive: Book 1
Alora Church, scientist extraordinaire, is used to being valued for her mind, not her womb.
She barely leaves her lab long enough to see the effects of the aliens that have invaded Earth. When her best friend is Summoned to become an Axxeon breeder, Alora is prepared to help her run. Until two huge Axxeon warriors show and take Alora captive instead. She thinks there’s nothing worse than being taken as an alien incubator… but she’s wrong. Very wrong.
Tryllin, King of the Axxeon made a pact with Earth’s leaders to save them from genocide in exchange for select females. They have a common enemy, one that has infiltrated Earth and Tryllin is prepared to destroy. But he needs the scientist’s help, willing or not.
Now it’s time for her to make a sacrifice… until he suspects she’s also his fated mate. Can he make his captive a willing bride, or will destiny leave his arms empty and his soul shattered?
Axxeon Commander’s Pet: Book 2
She must teach him to behave. He treats her like a pet.
Quixx of Axxeon is loyal to his King. But he’d rather be assigned a mission inside a black hole than follow the order to take a human wife. He’s rough around the edges and doesn’t care what humans think of him. His only focus is to make right on a terrible tragedy. But his King has other plans…
Quixx must fetch his betrothed, after receiving some personal lessons in manners. Those lessons are to come from the most stubborn, infuriating– and enticing– woman that he knows.
Priya Kotbf knows first hand how impossible Quixx can be. He’s gruff, rude, hopeless, dismissive… and sexy as hell. The Axxeon King wants her to groom his third in command to take a wife. But more hangs in the balance than they thought… If she can’t make him behave, they could lose it all.
It should be a simple task, until chaos erupts with the help of an old enemy and Quixx proves how impossible he can be. Priya makes a shocking discovery that changes everything… and makes it unthinkable to see Quixx in another woman’s arms.
Axxeon Prince’s Prize: Book 3
She’s a midwife to monsters.
Human midwife Sasha Black was abducted from Earth and sent to an alien breeding farm to deliver hybrid babies. Suddenly, the monsters who put her on the desolate planet abandon them, and if she doesn’t get help soon, they’ll all die.
They’ve run out of food and water, and her expectant mothers are delivering something unexpected. Something else.
Hahn, Prince of Axxeon 9, receives a covert message from his father, the exiled King. He’s in trouble, and time is running out. Hahn must reach him soon, but a frantic transmission from a ghost planet forces him to jump far off course.
He’s sworn to protect his father and keep their secret pact, but duty is challenged by the human female who needs him, and tempts him with her curvy body to forget his true purpose.
When his heart overrides loyalty, Hahn must make an impossible choice. Will he sacrifice everything for his fated mate, or do the unthinkable?
Taken by the Axxeon: Book 4
Tarex of Axxeon was supposed to find his people a new planet. Instead, he ended up the plaything of an insane master.
Since crash landing with his crew and being sold to a master on the ghost planet, Hanasha-Yupa, one thought keeps Tarex fighting: freedom. He’s been forced to do things that haunt him. He needs to escape now, before his captors change his brain and make him one of them. Forever.
He’s close to busting out when they throw the human female at his feet and demand that he do one more horrible thing.
Blume Montgomery didn’t excel in advanced combat training in the U.S. Army for nothing. After months of bouncing around in the cargo hold of a scavenger’s ship, she’s ready to kick some alien ass.
She’s dropped at the feet of an Axxeon who looks one step away from tearing anything he can reach limb from limb.
She sees the warrior in his eyes, the man he was before this place. Can she tap into it before it’s too late? Or will one of them come completely unleashed before they realize what fate has brought them together to do?
Amazon suggested these little gems for me. I haven’t read any alien romance yet, so I knew it was time to see what it was about. The author’s description piqued my interest and I liked that each book is a complete story. If I didn’t love the first one, I wouldn’t be stuck wondering about the larger plot line and if it might get better with time. I read all four stories in four days, which, for me, is very fast. Every time I had a spare couple of minutes, I peeked in to see what was happening to everyone.
Liz Paffel did a great job with worldbuilding. The Axxeon have special abilities that are interesting but not over the top and not used as an easy way to plug plot holes. The stories were well thought out and flowed well. You really get attached to the characters in the short time you are together and they work through their difficulties.
I love that the guys were as willing to get all the feels as the girls but would still happily kick ass and then get naked. It was a fun twist that the women were more willing to take things casually than the men and were more experienced in a couple instances. The first book was the best edited. The other three had a few misspellings and inconsistencies with the Axxeon language and a craft name. Had I not read them back-to-back, I might not have noticed. But these minor things do not take away from the stories at all.
In book 1, we meet King Tryllin and Alora. The Axxeon are in Earth’s orbit collecting women to reseed their species and preparing to leave in search of a new home. Tryllin and Alora are the first contact between their people and decisions were made then that have serious repercussions now. They manage to navigate their way through to their happily ever after and it makes you so happy to see.
Book 2 spends more time with Commander Quixx and Alora’s friend Pryia. The back and forth between these two is entertaining. He’s such a grump and she can’t resist poking at him. She stands for what she believes in even when it looks like that’s the end of everything between them. In the midst of betrayal and chaos they find their way back to each other for their happy ending.
Prince Hahn and Sasha take the stage for book 3 and give us a chance to visit other planets and see what kind of things happen outside of the Axxeon and their troubles. Sasha must overcome her own ghosts while Hahn reconciles his duty with his heart and is reminded that doing the wrong things for the right reason is still wrong. Their happily ever after makes you smile and want to grab a Snickers.
In Book 4 we meet Tarex and find out what happened to Sasha’s friend Blume. Blume is tough as nails and so stubborn, and Tarex finds a good match with her. He has his own ghosts to battle, and she reminds him that women can be just as fierce as men when they need to be. My only nit with this is we never find out what, exactly, the King has that the Mother wants. It doesn’t even seem to be his giant . . . . you know . . . since he’s kept all the way down in the lowest cells. Why did she want him? The rest though, is all good and ties up the main story arc nicely along with their happily ever after.
If you enjoy aliens, new planets, and sweet romance then you definitely want to read these books. You won’t want to put them down until the end. I’ll be checking out more of her stories to see if I enjoy them just as much.
Hot aliens, feisty ladies, true love, and the quest for survival. These books are for mature audiences and do contain scenes of explicit content.
