I loves me a cheesy sci-fi romance! ~ Under the Covers

Not much is known about the Qurilixens a viking-like, male dominated race; however, journalist Morrigan is determined to get the story on their marriage practices; especially about their royal family who are rumoured to be taking a wife from the latest batch of mail order brides supplied by Galaxy Brides. Going undercover as a prospective wife, Morrigan never expects to be swept off by a handsome barbarian herself, especially when he starts calling her wife…

I loves me a cheesy sci-fi romance! They are an addiction for me, any story with a sexy alien getting it on with an unsuspecting Earth gal and I am on it.

The Barbarian Prince pretty much ticked all my boxes in the cheesy sci-fi romance department, big sexy warrior alien, check! Stubborn Earth female, check! Some hot and sexy lovin’, check! I admit it only had a token plot, which didn’t seem to add much to this story but which I think is probably more important to the next few books, but I was more focused on what Morrigan and Ualan would do next.

What stopped this book from getting anything higher than 3 was the constant Misunderstandings. This book relied on these throughout the whole book and I hate that, their whole marriage would have been sorted out if they have just had an honest and open conversation, which of course they don’t till the last minute.

But, I did enjoy this, it made me laugh, it had some hot smexy times and I reckon I am going to like reading the other books in this series set in the vikingesque alien world of Qurilixen.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
