Publisher's BlurbShe’d been stupid. Careless. Jacie called herself ten times a fool for falling for Myro’s charms. Now she is pregnant and alone, and has been sent to a world unlike her own. When Barimere, a tall, sexy hunk of alien male, meets her at the shuttle station on his world, Jacie feels the stirrings of desire. Even though that’s what got her into this mess in the first place. But there’s something about Barimere that’s different, and she doesn’t mean the scars on his face.
Barimere agrees to guard Jacie from unwanted attention, and possible abduction. But one look at her, and her demented fur ball pet, and he wonders if he is insane to accept the mission. He knows a woman like her would never look twice at a scarred male like him, but that doesn’t stop his body from instantly reacting to her beauty and charm.
A pregnancy that is more than what it seems, and a woman determined to find love on an alien world, is more adventure than the taciturn warrior has bargained for. Barimere is all for Jacie finding a mate and getting herself out from under his nose. Except, for some odd reason, he’d like to tear apart any male who looks her way, and beat the living hell out of anyone who hurts her.
With a warrior intent on fighting his attraction, and a human female who is determined to bring him to his knees, what could possibly go wrong?
Jacie and the Alien Bodyguard is the 6th book in the Intergalactic Brides Series by author Jessica Coulter Smith. I have not read all the books in order, I can understand this story just find. I like how it is really is more about the love story between the characters, that way you can jump into the series in the middle and not be lost.
Jacie she has a mischievous cat named Sugar Butt. ( Love her already huge cat lover myself) She is pregnant but the father left her before she could tell him. Now he is mated to someone else. She feels stupid for being alone and pregnant. Now on an alien world to boot. But she sees a real goodness in Barimere. One that he does not even see himself.
I liked she is not a shallow character. There is real depth and humor to her.
Barimere used to be a warrior. That is before he was captured and tortured. He is now a scarred shell of the man he used to be. He is in charge of guarding Jacie. He never expected to fall for her. When it looks like she falls for him. He becomes scared is he good enough for her.
I liked that Jacie helps him to learn sometimes being imperfect is the best way to be.
Over all this is a great steamy romance with a lot of depth to it. I know I will be looking for more from this series in the future.
