Single mom Rachel Hunter has not one second to spare in her day between rearing two daughters, running a thriving goat farm, and keeping tabs on her eccentric brother. Not to mention an ex-husband who’s in prison for murder and a local gang leader harassing her at every turn! Then a gorgeous, tattooed man crashes into her fence and she finds out exactly what it means to have her hands full.
Pruxnae Dyuvad ab Mhij is sent to Earth by a mysterious Net telepath to protect a young girl, from what, the ‘path doesn’t say. He arrives at the girl’s home expecting the worst, and is greeted by the young girl’s mother, a honey-haired, plain spoken temptress whose mountain fortitude makes her a perfect candidate for the Choosing.
Dyuvad’s first duty is to his mission, protecting a young girl from dangers unknown. It doesn’t take long for the danger to become apparent, however, and soon, he and Rachel are embroiled in a reckless game led by a man who will stop at nothing to control Rachel and her children.

Alien Mine is my favorite so far of this series. Alien Mine is a standalone but if you’ve read The Choosing (book 1), you find out who the other man was in Ziri’s house and you understand a little bit more about the Choosing referenced in Alien Mine. I loved Rachel and her creative non-swearing curses. The building tension throughout kept me listening long after I planned to stop. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
I received this audiobook for free from StoryOrigin. This is my honest and voluntary review.
