He'll be dead by his next birthday if he doesn't find his mate...

Dead alien walking...

Ruwen NaNaran knows he's a goner. His alien species is cursed by a deadly genetic quirk and he'll be dead before the month is out, unless he finds his denya. She's the only woman in the universe who can save him. It's too bad that most Detyen women are dead.

Down on her luck and lost in space...

Lis Jaynx just wants to go home. Kidnapped from Earth by unknown foes, she's dropped on a inhospitable planet with little food and no hope. She'll do anything to find a ship to take her back to Earth, but Polai is hostile to all alien life, and Lis is running out of places to hide.

An unexpected chance...

From the moment he sees her, Ru knows Lis is his denya. But she's already wounded and distrustful of aliens, even those who claim they want to help.

Will the explosive chemistry between them be enough to topple Lis's fears? Or will their bond break before it even forms, leaving Ru a dead alien walking and Lis all alone in the black of space.

Ruwen is the first book in the Mated to the Alien series. Detyens are doomed to die at the age of thirty if they don't find their fated mates in time. The series can be read in any order and there are no cliffhangers! Enjoy fated mates, steamy alphas, and plenty of space adventures.


“It’s not every day a poor Earth girl like me finds a sexy alien mate. They’re all going to be so jealous.”91% Ruwen

Ruwen is book one in the Mated To The Alien series by Kate Rudolph and Starr Huntress.

It’s a fated mate/insta mate type read. 

Lis is abducted, tested on, and then told sorry we picked up the wrong alien now here’s a backpack with supplies enjoy this planet. 

Ruwen is an endangered species. They die by the age of 30 if they haven’t found their fated mate. 

This story is short and drags bit. Ru was sweet, but I prefer my aliens/alphas to be a bit more alpha and in charge. As for the story it’s got no world building, no relationship building, and the characters have no depth. 

This was a freebie and I’m glad for that. It had nothing special or memorable about the story and It didn’t capture me or make me want to read on. It was something to pass the time.

Rated: 3 Stars
