Title: The Nanny and the Alien Warrior
Author: Honey Phillips, Bex McLynn
Series: Treasured by the Alien #5
When Joanna is abducted by aliens, she expects the worst. Instead she is purchased by an alien warlord to be the nanny for his adorable little girl named Sultavi. Unfortunately, a year later the warlord is dead and Joanna and Sultavi are on the run.
This was a wonderful alien romance about found family and adoption. I was hooked by Joanna’s story from the very beginning and didn’t want to put it down. Joanna is an older and more mature heroine and I found I really loved that, especially considering she dedicated her life to her career (which is what I have done). She never expected to have kids but she adopts Sultavi as her own and lavishes the little girl with love. I adored her for that. This book just shows how great adoption can be for the kids and the parents.
Craxan was a Cire warrior who has spent his life going from one job to another. He never expected to find his mate but knows instantly Joanna is his. Craxan was a protective but also very sweet hero and I adored him. He was so loving and considerate to Joanna and Sultavi I just couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Also Craxan was a great friend to Jeb and I really wish we had seen more of that friendship in this book.
These two have instant attraction because they are fated to be together but their relationship is still slow progressing. They don’t just jump into the bed together, which I loved. I really enjoyed the intimate moments of making out, talking, and flirting before they even fully mated. Also I just loved the family moments in this book and how they worked together to take care of Sultavi.
Overall, this was a wonderful alien romance filled with lots of love and family. I can’t wait to read the next book!
