What’s a big, bad (sometimes green) alien to do when he wants a mate who isn’t motivated by greed?  Contact Celestial Mates. After all, their business is romancing the galaxy.
Since she’s creeping up on the age of bearing service, the Earth government wants Jassa to have a baby and then hand it off for afamily to raise, but Jassa wants her own family.  Which means calling Celestial Mates.  One questionnaire, a bit of blood, and a race to get away from the Department of Population, and she’s got her wish—tall, sexy as hell, and occasionally green alien Vroe, the High Warlord of Vialea.
Vroe aches for a mate who doesn’t see him as just a rise in status. He wishes for warmth and affection and goes to Celestial Mates to find… Jassa Marizen.  Yet his ideas about mating—Jassa mating him and forever being known as only Vrya—collide with hers.  She doesn’t want to lose her past. He wants her to embrace her future.
And then there’s this other woman… She just wants Vroe to herself.

Jassa is determined to be seen as more than a broad mare. She wants children but she also wants to raise them. Celestial Mates will help her have the future she wants. If she ends up with a Not So Little Green Man, at least she will have the life she wants. This is Erin Tate’s contribution to the Celestial Mates series and is well written.
Jassa will fight for the future she wants, even if it is different than the Vroe expected. Jassa turns this world on its head as she fights to keep her identity. I love seeing her fall in love with her alien mate even as she teaches him that he is more than the High Lord. Ms. Tate gave us unexpected twists and turns. She gave us characters that were full of emotion and depth. Ms. Tate showed us a love that made her characters strive for more and she did it in a way that felt believable. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a nice quick read well worth your time and money.
