Alien General's Bride (Brion Brides #3) by Vi Voxley


Heat Rating

Isolde’s first space mission goes takes a wild turn when she misses her ride and has to hitch one with the most notorious aliens in the galaxy.

Alien General's Bride is much larger than the first two books and has a number of edits that needed fixing. As a part of the Brion Brides series it lacks continuity when it comes to the characters, because in the first book, Alien Warrior's Mate (Brion Brides #1) which is professed to be the prequel to Alien General's Bride, Deliya finds her mate in Darien. Yet, according to Alien General's Bride Deliya has no mate and it is the third book in the series begging the question, how much effort did Vi Voxley really put into her creation. I was genuinely disappointed in Alien General's Bride because even though the story was longer the really was nothing that tied the three books together. Narath and Urenya (from Alien Warrior's Wife (Brion Brides #2) were both in the story but again there was nothing to indicate they were a couple because they were never found together.

I usually tell you what I like about a book first, but to be honest I needed to time to really think about what I liked because I had stopped reading it several times, in favor of other books that were less disappointing than Alien General's Bride. Thankfully, the time I took to think about what I really liked paid off because I can say the bedroom scenes were hot and steamy and the challenge between Diego and the monster was pretty awesome, but other than that I was bored. Between the edits and my overall disappointment, I am giving Alien General's Bride one-star.

Book Cover Rating

Book Blurb Rating
Even though I liked the blurb enough to purchase Alien General’s Bride, I think it could be better organized. The second part of the blurb would make more sense at the end, because where it is placed seems more like an interruption of the description or either that the author got distracted with the need to chase rabbits.

**Nothing could have prepared her for the general...

This is a 100 k full scifi romance novel featuring a BBW human heroine and a growly alpha male Brion warrior general. It can and should be read as a standalone and has a guaranteed HEA ending! **

Isolde Fenner had big dreams, but surprisingly enough, the universe was even bigger. Curvy and confident, she set out on her first intergalactic mission as a scientist from Earth, studying alien species. But she didn't even get to step foot on her shuttle when everything was turned upside down. The most powerful man in the universe wanted her. Her. And despite knowing better, she wanted him too. No one says no to the general. But she can't let him know that.

Diego Grothan is undefeated. Body, mind, soul - there is no one stronger than the Brion general, one of the most feared men in the universe. But even he finds himself on the brink of destruction when a human woman calls to him like nothing else. She is his. She simply doesn't know it yet. Not only is it unthinkable to want a human, but it might just be the push his enemies need to come for him. But Diego Grothan is prepared. Always.

Thrust into intrigue, war and hunted by enemies hiding behind veils, Diego must prove himself not only to his new bride, but the galaxy at large. It is no easy feat, but he is, after all, undefeated...

Will Isolde give into the mouthwateringly hot and equally as ferocious alien general or will fate make the decision for her?
