Cosmos Raines is considered to be one of the most brilliant inventors in the world. A prodigy, he is a self-made billionaire who would rather be in his lab than jet-setting around the world. Things change when his latest experiment literally opens a Gateway into a whole new world. Now, not only has his best friend and her family moved to a new star system through the Gateway he has opened but he finds himself with a warehouse full of alien guests, including one very aggravating female that has turned him inside out.
Terra ‘Tag Krell Manok has spent her life in the shadows of her three older brothers. Her home world of Baade is a male dominated world where females are few in numbers and protected to the point of captivity. Terra’s father is the high chancellor of the Prime and considered to be the fiercest warrior of their world next to her brothers. No one defies him and lives. Terra is surprised when her father suddenly sends her through the Gateway into hiding to protect her from a clan insisting that she be mated for political purposes. The last thing she expects to find there is her bond mate - in the form of a human male!
Cosmos may not have been expecting to find the woman of his dreams on the other side of the Gateway he built. He knows one thing for sure - no one is going to take her away from him - not the clan who wants to use her nor her father who thinks all human males are worthless.
If you have not read the three previous books you need to stop right now. This is a well-written intricate series of books that pick up where the previous book left off, so it is definitely not a standalone. Cosmos made an appearance in the first and subsequent books and is the reason for all the ruckus. The portal he created brought humans and Prime into contact and the rest is history. Prime have a population problem that human women can help fix, and we are more than compatible. Cosmos found out in the last book that he and Terra, daughter of the high chancellor of the Prime, are bonded mates. Problem is Daddy doesn't want his daughter mated to a scrawny human. Bigger problem is Cosmos isn't going to take no for an answer, and he'll show it takes more than brawn to protect a woman. This was another story that I devoured in this series, and look forward to many more. Both Cosmos and Terra were well-defined as people, but Cosmos a little more so since the reader has had much more interaction with him throughout the books. There is a sense of humor prevalent throughout the books and this one in particular when it comes to punishing the high chancellor for his egotistical behavior concerning his daughter. As usual, there is lots of build up to the big sexual bonding as well as updates on the previous romances and how they are coming along. A long-running story line came to a conclusion in this book and I have to wonder where the author is going to go next. - Night Owl Reviews
