THE HEAT IS ON!
Defying The General by USA Today bestselling author Maddie Taylor HAS LAUNCHED!
Lana Hartman intends to find a new planet for the desperate people of Earth to call home, but this explorer-turned-colonist is about to get more than she bargains for in the form of a seven-foot-tall alpha alien with enigmatic eyes and a devastating smile. Chased, manhandled, and carried off over a broad, muscular shoulder, Lana soon finds herself claimed as the gorgeous warrior’s lifelong mate.
Together, they are explosive. The primal male awakens something deep within Lana and proves himself quite skilled at bringing her to the most mind-blowing orgasms. But love isn’t enough for the beauty to abandon her mission.
Fate draws them together, but danger and deceit will wrench them apart. Can they find their way back to each other while doing what they must to save their people? Or, will treachery keep them from claiming their happily forever after?
Defying the General is book 4 in The Primarian Mates Series but may be read and enjoyed as a standalone HOT sci-fi romance!
ARC BOOK REVIEW
So doing my usual trick of reading things backwards I started ” Defying The General”.
And all-though I would probably suggest a smoother experience reading this from the start of the series.
This can be read in my opinion as a stand-alone as all the components are there and it does explain things fully.
So this runs parallel with previous instalments and right from the get-go I was hooked.
And apart from the prologue that initially confused me (until events were eventually clarified).
I found this super easy to follow and get lost in.
This had such likeable characters, great imagination and fantastic world building.
Anyone that knows me knows I’m a goner for anything alien and though these ET’s were very human looking I forgave that on account of there barbarian chest beating masculinity.
You’d be like a kid in a sweet shop here with all this male yumminess and testosterone even with all the spanking and dominance shit.
I so wouldn’t mind complying for the luscious General Trask, just saying.
Trask was lovely a bit archaic in his views on the opposite sex but I forgave him as this was the Primarian way.
Lana was also a sweetie, a trifle simple in her belief system and easily manipulated but she was also harmless and most importantly she was kind.
She made stupid decisions, but at heart, her reasonings were sound and were done for what she perceived as good so that made it more understandable.
Lana would definitely be the sort of girl that would do the obviously stupid crap in a horror movie that would so get her killed.
You know, the one you’d be screaming at your TV screen too.
NO DON’T DO IT!!!
I really did enjoy “Defying The General” so much more than I was initially expecting.
I was transfixed throughout.
I ummed and Awed over my rating with this, whether to give this a four or a five star.
I eventually went with a five as though I had some slight niggles this kept my attention from start to finish, One I couldn’t put down.
“Defying The General” was told In dual POV and was a fabulous addition to its genre.
If you like your sci-fi romance give this series a go, it is an action-packed sexy ride with a surprisingly deep romance (despite the initial insta-love) at its centre.
I absolutely adored “Defying The General”.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Defying The General” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Maggie’s deep-space exploration team is attacked and captured by an alien species desperately in need of compatible, submissive mates to save their dwindling race.

A USA Today and #1 international bestselling author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and ofttimes defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger and suspense to her plots.
Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.
