Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight a future release that you’re excited about. It’s hosted by Wishful Endings and was previously hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week’s anticipated book is:
Taken to Nobu by Elizabeth Stephens
There’s no way I’m letting this alien who calls me his Xiveri mate claim me as his. He may say the right things and stir emotions in me I never expected to feel again for any male, but his kind has already taken too much from me as is.
Trapped now on his harsh, snow-consumed planet waiting to be hunted, with no way of escape, I’ll do the only thing I can. The one thing I’ve been training for since the aliens first came to the human moon colony to hurt us. I’ll fight.
But when our enemies become one, will I be able to leave my prejudices behind and fight, not against, but alongside him?
She hates me, my human mate, but she honors me all the same. Nobu has never seen a queen before who is able to wield sword and staff, fist and tongue. A warrior queen, and mine to claim in the ceremony of the Mountain Run.
But when she fights me, it is not out of honor. She fights out of fear. She has been hurt before and views me as she does him. As a monster. Perhaps I am, because the one who harmed her will suffer torture upon torture at my hands.
I will need to catch him first and unfortunately, he has plans of his own and allies off-world. My queen and I will need to fight together to bring him to his knees and bury him once and for all… Trust, first, is what I need from her.
Release Date: June 16, 2020
Though this book can be read as a stand-alone, I read the first in the series, Taken to Voraxia, and loved it!!! Check out my review for Taken to Voraxia.

Mmm, I quite like the idea of a warrior queen wielding sword and staff, fist and tongue. I may need to check this one out.
Absolutely! I love a fierce female protagonist! 🙂
I haven’t read this, but it looks interesting!
