Alexis Donovan is a woman whose dream of falling in love with the perfect men has been dashed because of her infertile status. Still recovering from a war that almost destroyed the world, humans have fought to rebuild and have once again opened their shields to outside visitors. As a liaison officer for alien races that are visiting Earth, Alexis does her best to ignore what she can never have, but when she is put in charge of four visiting alien warriors, her entire world changes…
Dragons Warriors from Arcadia, Xavier and Galan Tesera and their best friends Thorn and Brydan Volis, have been curious about Earth ever since they helped the humans defeat their enemy years ago. As commanders of their own space vessel they travel the galaxies searching out the unknown, but in their hearts they know they will never truly be satisfied without a mate by their side.
When the four Dragon Warriors land on Earth they are instantly enamored with the sharp-tongued liaison who ignites a burning passion in their hearts, and know that she is the mate they have been searching for who will complete their souls. Will Alexis take a chance on four alien warriors or will the fear of leaving everything she has ever known destroy her chance of finding true love?
This is the first in the (hopefully, long) series of 3013, which I didn’t read in order. I gobbled up this book as soon as I finished the second book, 3013: Claimed. What an incredibly interesting new world: Laurie Roma takes a classic alien story and tailors it to perfection to fit in with the new world order. Alexis Donovan has fought long and hard to make something of herself, but will always be inferior due to her infertile status. All that changes when four sexy dragons walk into her life.
The Arcadian Dragon Warriors…where can I get a pair of my own? And lucky Alexis gets two pairs! This book is very fast paced, and while it could have been much longer with things fleshed out, it works this way. The passion is absolutely smoking hot in the 3013 books, and my goodness, do these men deliver! Let me just say, I’m sure glad that they’ve got magic to help with any soreness, or Alexis wouldn’t be walking for half of the book.
I greatly anticipate future stories from the 3013 world, and hope that changes are made to the culture (although, not too much is made of that in the second book, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed that future books will help infertile woman gain some ground in society). This book was a pleasure to read on this stormy evening, and will definitely go into my “re-read” pile.
