Title: A Gift for the Alien Warrior
Author: Honey Phillips
Series: Treasured by the Alien #7
When Taranov comes across an abandoned ship he never expects to find a human female and infant, or for him to be his fated mate. Unfortunately she has lost her memory and he is afraid he will lose her once he realizes he hasn’t been totally truthful.
Like all the books in this series, this one was short and sweet. The Cire are protective and very caring males and they really dote on their women. Taranov instantly knows that Wendy is his mate but is afraid that she will leave if he tells her the whole truth about how he found her. Taranov was a sweet and protective male but I didn’t love that he kept the truth from her. I do like that he manned up about it though and respected her wishes for distance.
Wendy was a smart and strong woman. She has spent her life mostly alone and has learned to be very independent because of it. I felt sorry for her because she had such terrible luck with her parents and ex. But, she really blossoms with Taranov and becomes a great adoptive mother.
One of my favorite parts of this series is the aspect of found family. These Cire warriors really create wonderful families from those who don’t have anyone. Also I love that they are so protective towards children and women. I just love all of Taranov’s friends in this one, especially the grumpy old cook Curall.
Overall, this was a very short and sweet alien romance. I look forward to reading more from this series.
