Honor. Loyalty. Strength.
Elite alien warrior Benyon believes in all three. He rose in the ranks of his planet’s legion of highly skilled fighters, earning his position with S.E.T.I. upholding the treaty between Earth and Yedahn.
He never expected his bonding marks to respond to a short, curvy tigress defending her three rebellious, talented children.
Work. Live. Say under the radar.
Single mother Zoriah trudges through her days as a Low Tier worker providing the best life possible for her children. But her teenage son, brilliant and headstrong, comes to the notice of Social Intervention.
The government agency that jails parents and tears families apart.
She must allow her son to join the alien training facility, and possibly be conscripted for war. And where he goes, the others follow . . .
Furious her three children—even eight-year-old Ashe—have been battle training in secret, Zoriah crashes a session to rip their instructor a new one.
She isn’t prepared for the instant heat between them, or his insistence that it is his duty to care for her and her children.
Even though he offers a better life on his own planet, she isn’t certain she has the courage to leave everything she has ever known.
And even though his own government tries to take his mate away, and his own people threaten the life of his new son, Benyon will fight fang and sword to keep his mate and family.
Warrior’s Bond is book one in the Warriors of Yedahn series. For readers who enjoy action, life on alien planets, alpha male warriors who live by a code, and slow burn love between fated mates. This romance includes steamy scenes and a happily ever after.
Warrior’s Bond is book one in the Yadeshi Brides series by Emma Alisyn.
Zoriah, is a single mother of three working two jobs.
Benyon, is a blue warrior alien on earth to train the kids that apply to the Yadeshi program.
I felt this story was rushed and things didn’t flow well. We barely get any background on the Yadeshi and we don’t get any history on how they came to be on earth, nor do we zip off to an alien plant in this story. We also don’t get to dive into the characters.
From what I understand about the world. Earth’s government isn’t nice and they are regulating their people, in that once you are in a class level you stay and don’t get a chance to improve your situation. They are also hiding all the benefits of joining the Yadeshi organization from it’s earth citizens.
I found some things interesting, like the Yadeshi and their training program, but we don’t get to dive into it all, so I was disappointed on the lack of information and world building. The romance was a slow, sweet, and nice courtship.
The major downside with this book for me besides the lack of flow, information, and world building is that we actually ended at 62%. The last 40% of this book is all advertisement for the other books in the Yadeshi Brides series. I don’t like when an author does this. It’s misleading the readers and not giving us a full story.
Warrior’s Bond was ok, but didn’t win me over. Their was potential, but it needed more. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
