2 Americans and a Canadian Tour – Mated by Gwendolyn Cease

Laira Marshall had to admit—getting kidnapped wasn’t something she’d expected. Discovering her kidnappers were aliens who planned on selling her into sexual slavery, definitely tipped the scales into the truly bizarre. But she’s determined to fight her way through this—until their slave ship is attacked, and Laira’s faced with an entirely new problem.

Rakin and Dev were the leaders of the Sandaki—a race genetically engineered to fight. Using their enhanced traits, they’ve freed their people and have devoted their lives to seeking out those who enslaved them. They never considered the concept of love—or that one woman could bring them to their knees.

With unknown enemies working against them, the three lovers must come together not only to save themselves, but the Sandaki race itself.

This was a fun, steamy, quick read. It was different than many Sci-Fi romance/erotica that I've read – and for that I'm thankful!

Laira finds herself in an odd situation, she's notified that she has been abducted by alien slavers to be auctioned as a sex slave.
Not only that, but her body has also been physically altered to maximize her "potential." She quickly makes friends with the other "slaves," and I love that not once did she act like a victim.

The world building was OK, nothing super special but I did get a feel for her new "world." (I need to add, that I REALLY want a "cleansing" booth!)
Everything comes to a crazy "head" when the girls realized the slaver's ship is being attacked.

And we get to meet the Sandaki!! Now, these are some aliens that I could take a liking to. As Laira and her group of new friends are trying to escape danger of the fierce warrior race of Sandaki, they realize they're being chased.
Not only chased but hunted...
Laira is captured, and the story really starts :)

Rakin is the "leader" of the Sandaki, and has claimed Laira as his mate – which is a forever type of lover. As with any relationship, there are trials and tribulations. Not to mention, Rakin's co-leader and shield mate: Dev (that's all I can say about him).
Twists and turns abound: threats to the Sandaki are realized, love blossoms, and the erotic scenes are HOT!
Overall, I really liked the characters, I liked the writing, and I would love to read the next book in this series.

Gwendolyn Cease has been writing ever since she was old enough to pick up a pen. From the very beginning, her stories involved handsome heroes, tough heroines, and happily ever after. Even as she slogged through two undergraduate degrees and a master’s in education, writing remained top priority. Though she now works full-time as a history museum educator, she still makes time for her characters and their never-ending adventures.

Currently, Gwendolyn lives in Kentucky with her incredibly spoiled cats. If you’d like to contact her, she’d love to hear from you. She loves to hear from anyone who enjoys a good book, especially the ones she’s written.
