Publisher's Summary

First contact changed things on Earth. It opened possibilities that were never before possible. In what started as a trip to participate in an cooperative study, Sara found herself a test subject for breeding compatibility by a species known as the Agraak. Determined that she would not submit to be bred and relocated to serve as a breeder for the rest of her life, she escaped into the wilds of a hostile subarctic planet. Not knowing who to trust, and almost dying on the ice flows, she is rescued by a male larger than life whom her body craves.

Vidok

A warrior-priest of the VaDorok, Vidok had long given up hope of finding his ulukska, his mate. When he finds a tiny female off-worlder on the ice flows of the far northern territory who brings forth his mating heat, his life changes. To keep her, he not only has to help her save her companions, but must also risk their love facing repercussions among his tribe and the intergalactic council. 

Trigger-warning: the first two chapters contain elements involving rape.

***Narrator's sounds like an old man***

It could have been an awesome book it has everything an alien abduction story but the narrator didn't do much justice, I kept imagining Vitok as an old man and he sounds like a he has a cold when he does Sarah or any females. I got used to it along the way but I still kept imagining their old men lol

Wrong narrator

From what I was able to get through, this looks like a really good book but the narrator totally threw me off. It sounded like an elderly man reading and while he’s a good narrator, he’s not the one for this story. I’ll pick up the ebook instead.

No no just no

I couldn’t get through the first chapter because of the narrator. Narrators can make or break an audio book.

Great story Bad Narrorator

OMGoodbness. Let me start by saying I love love love S.J. Sanders books. I’ve read the orc wife and troll wife and I love them both. But this one, I was planning to read but when I saw it on audible I purchased it instantly. The story is great however the narrator they picked was not the best. I mean come on! The last thing I want to here is a man well over his 80’s (that’s what he sounds like) narrating a Sci-Fi romance from a woman’s point of view. I mean his voice was very cruddy and when it came to the love scenes it was cringe worthy. It was like my grandpa narrating a love scene. Could not get into it. Quite halfway and purchased the book and read the rest. Please SJ Sanders get a better narrator.

Great Book! but narrator makes me CRINGE!

I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this audiobook. When listening to the sample, I thought "Well, this is the male point of view, and while not a great choice, I think I can push past it." WRONG! That old man voice you hear in the sample reads the WHOLE book! It makes you feel like your grandfather is reading you a sex story! UGH! **CRINGE** I couldn't make it past the first chapter. They could not have chosen a worse narrator for this book! So disappointing! I wish I could refund.

grandpa dont talk about sex! Fingers in ears lala

I tried to finish this book but the narrator is wrong, so hard to listen to. His voice is elderly, booming and so slow. I thought it would be ok if I just listened at a faster speed but even at max speed just no. also he's emotionless, like he's narrating a dry factual report or a instruction manual. Hearing him say things like "my cunt" (which should be in a sexual way and is not) takes me out of the story completely. In my head it's like grandpa dont talk to me about sex! Fingers in ears lalalalala. What story I got through was ok but I couldn't finish, it wasn't enjoyable, I was forcing myself to listen. A different narrator would make a world of difference. This narrator needs a different genre entierly. I dont really ever write reviews, and I'm never so harsh but dont get this book! waste of a credit.

Sci-fi romance

There were several things I liked about this audiobook, and several things that I didn’t. The story itself was pretty good, except the different alien races had complicated names that were hard to remember and I kept getting confused about who were the good aliens and the bad aliens. The author could have done more with world building. It was vague about the planet the heroine was on except that it was cold. My biggest issue with the audiobook was the narrator, who I felt wasn’t the right choice. While he did use inflection and changed character voices a little bit, he was obviously elderly and sounded like my grandfather! It’s hard to listen to a sexy scene in a senior citizens voice. For these reasons I didn’t rate the book as high as I would have if these things were different. I listen to hundreds of audiobooks a year and this just wasn’t one I’ll listen to again. Sorry.

Better than I expected!

I really enjoyed the story line, wish the other books in the series were on here. This one his been in my wish list for the longest, because most of the reviews scared me. The narrator isn’t the best pick for this type of story, and yes it is a little weird/ funny listening to a old man talk about sexual needs. The story line kept my interest, as it is a different twist on the alien abduction storyline. I have listened to a lot and most stick to the same script, so kudos to the author because she actually created a unique world. In my opinion the narrator isn’t so bad that it was a distraction from the storyline. Maybe I’m biased. I have listened to some bad narrators in the past, and this guy didn’t annoy me to the point I’m rethinking the purchase. Huge fan of this author!

Great story, bad narration

The story was fascinating, but the narrative.. hmm how to put it. It was like having your grandfather reading a steamy romance to you , ughhhhh . That said I would definitely love to hear more stories in this series without grandpa reading it. He not bad just bad for this sort of story.

The VaDorok

I could not enjoy this book because the narrator did such a monotone that it was just too hard to get into the story.
