She’s pretending to be a man. Will he see through her disguise in time to prove to her that she’s the right woman for him? Or will a little mischief ruin her second chance for love?

My name is Madison Altman. Don’t think because I’ve disguised myself as a man and have accepted a job that takes me away from Earth that I’m running away from love. That’s not true. I met the love of my life--but he was killed on our wedding day.

Chaperoning crazy women traveling to Dakon to become the mail order brides of aliens is just a way to pay the bills.
Unfortunately, on this latest assignment, the ship returned to Earth without me! Luckily, Enoki came to my rescue. He might be hot, and sexy as hell with his gravelly voice and throbbing horns, but he believes I’m a man, and we’re friends, not lovers. That’s how I want it. That’s how it has to be. As soon Enoki can get me a flight to Earth, I’m leaving this frozen planet for good.

I’m Enoki, leader of Dakon. For the longest time, whispers in the wind told me my Fated mate was coming. Whispers turned to shouts when the recent shipment of females arrived, but none of them were mine. I must accept the Fates were wrong. I’ll never get a mate.

My purpose now is to help the stranded Earth man return to his home planet. Even though Madison is a Terran, we’ve developed a strong bond. I know I’ll miss him, but because we’re friends, I intend to do everything I can to help him leave.

Why do the whispers tell me not to let him go?


Alien Mischief is book four in the Alien Mate series by Cara Bristol and this title ends the series. We finally get Enoki, the leader of all the Dakon tribes story. 

This was another fun, sexy, and enjoyable read. I’m happy that we end with Enoki. I’ve been waiting for his story.

The Alien Mates series is best read in order, but the author does give enough background that you can pick this one up and go. 

This one is a little different then previous books. Madison didn’t volunteer to become a mate to a Dakon. She’s working for the exchange program as a chaperon for the women in the mate program. She only signed up to the program to prove something; especially to her brother about sexism. In the end she applies as a women and as a man. You can guess which applicant got hired. Now, for three years she’s been pretending to be a man and escorting mates-to-be to Dakon. She has no plans to become a mate, but fate has other ideas. 

Enoki is the leader of all the tribes on Dakon. He spends a lot of time being the peacemaker to all the different tribes. He’s fair and doesn’t use his position to get in on the mate process. This time thou the winds have been whispering to him that his mate is coming. Yet, all the women that came went with the partners they where meant too, so what is Enoki to do?

The circumstances in this one where a lot of fun. We get a lot of funny moments; especially when Madison in trying to keep Enoki in the dark. I felt the story was a bit deeper and more tender then others in the series. Maddison is a bit judge at first, but that’s because she’s lying to herself. Her BBF was great and did what any BBF would due in calling her out on her bull shit. I loved how Enoki fought for them both.

We are treated to humor, spice, and a heartwarming romance that left me satisfied. I devoured this book in one day. If you enjoy fated mates, science fiction and romance then this series is for you. It’s a lot of fun and doesn’t just jump to the fated mate. It gives the couples time to grow. 

Rated: 4 Stars
