Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author S.E. Smith presents another action-, adventure-, and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world. 

Riley St. Claire has always followed her own rules. When she discovers her current employer is not as law-abiding as she thought, she has to leave town in a hurry...or end up buried with the dead guy she discovered. She doesn't expect to be picked up by a passing trader from another world. 

As the ruling king of Sarafin, Vox d'Rojah is expected to produce a son who will be joined in marriage with the first-born daughter of the king of Valdier. But Vox has no intentions of having any sons, at least not in the near future. He's quite happy with the wide selection of females at his disposal. When Vox is captured by a ruthless Valdier royal and sold to a mining operation, the last thing he expects to find is his bride mate. 

Vox isn't sure which would be easier: fighting another war with the Valdier or capturing and holding on to the human female who's unlike anyone he has ever encountered. Now he must escape back to his world while fighting pirates, traders - and Riley! 

The king of Sarafin has met his match in Ms. Riley St. Claire from Earth. Now he just needs to figure out a way to let her know he has chosen her as his queen - and he has every intention of keeping her by his side forever.

Audible brings the wonderful humour to life.

Audible brings the wonderful humour to life. Narrator does a good job with this story as Riley is a strong personality.
BOOK REVIEW
Fantastic read. In the top 5 books of all Ms Smiths wonderful interconnecting world of Aliens.
I don't think I have laughed out loud so much as I did at Riley's antics. She is wonderful, another strong capable woman who doesn’t need a man in her life but completes them like no one else can.
The fact that Vox, the Sarafin King, one of the most feared fighters in the galaxy keeps tripping over his own paws making mistakes is hysterical.
One of the best books I have read in ages. This book ties in with the wonderful world created by Ms Smith.
I just wish she could write them faster as there are so many wonderful characters awaiting their HEA's.
I can re-read Ms Smiths books continually as still laugh every time.

***Choosing Riley***

This is one of my favourites of all S E Smith's books. Riley is a breath if fresh air, she is sassy, feisty potty mouthed earthlings who can drive a man or cat up the wall. Box the said cat/man has totally smitten and fallen hard to Miss St Claire from Denver Colorado will do almost anything to keep his feisty mate from returning back to earth. I love their adventure I laugh so hard and also cried. David Brenin you are an amazing narrator thank you.

Laughed my rear end off

Would you consider the audio edition of Choosing Riley to be better than the print version?

Better no.... the audio version brought the story more to life but I love both versions of this book.

What did you like best about this story?

Have to admit I love Riley's character and everytime Vox killed one of her coats I was laughing so much I cried.

Have you listened to any of David Brenin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've listened to alot of David Brenin's performances and he brings the story to life with how he narrates it.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed so much with this book. Some of the situations and the descriptions were just too funny.

Any additional comments?

I love S.E Smiths books and have bought them all and the audiobook versions. I can't tell you that I prefer one or the other. But I love listening to them and hearing someone elses take on the book. Definitely great when you have such a great narrator.

Impossible to finish, incredibly moronic.

Despite my very best effort I was unable to finish this book, it was simply to painful. Most stupid heroine I have ever experienced, pure luck she did not kill everyone a dozen times by stupidity and arrogance. The book in general has things to easy for the "good guys", the "bad guys" were unfit in their job which does not fit with how successful they were until the heroine came along.

I will say this for the author, there is easy (albeit painful) flow to her story, so I can imagine myself checking out the plot lines and reviews of her other books down the line. With some caution.

A Brilliant Book

I wasn't sure about this book but I loved it.

Riley and her mishaps are wonderfully brave, funny and outspoken.

Vox is totally in love with Riley and takes everything she dishes out.

A definite must listen/read.

Can't wait to hear the next book.
