Our interview today is with one of the men of the new Evernight Publishing book, Bondmate by J. J. Lore, Mateen of the Albin, a native of Planet Alpha.
Hello, Mateen and welcome to Earth.
Thank you. I’m pleased to be here. You Earthlings have an interesting military history. I’m fascinated by your Aztecs.
Thank you, I think. So you’re a military man?
Yes, I’m proud to serve with my fellow Alphans, the galaxy’s finest fighting force. My bondmate, Bynton, and I have achieved high ranks and won many honors on the battlefield.
You mentioned bondmate. What is that?
Earthings don’t have bondmates? How strange. A bondmate is someone whose soul echoes your own. Men find a bondmate when they are in training, someone to spar with, partner in battle, treat each other’s wounds, share the spoils of war.
Sounds like a strong friendship.
It’s more than that, much more. It’s a meeting of the mind and psyche. One that can only be completed by bonding with the right woman.
So there’s room for one more?
Of course. Bynton and I are on our way to search for her now, here on Earth.
What’s your type?
My type? My type of what?
What sort of woman do you like? Tall, petite, blonde, brunette, thin, curvy?
Her appearance matters not. We will know her when we find her and she will be ours.
Do you have any hobbies? Things you like to do for fun?
I like to behead Xyran scum with my favorite blade. I also enjoy polishing my body armor.
I see. Well, good luck with your search for the perfect woman here on Earth.
Luck is not a factor.
Decorated Alphan warriors Mateen and Bynton are on a clandestine mission to one of Earth’s refugee camps, in search of the one woman who might complete their bond. Tempering their instincts to capture and hold, both men realize they must court their chosen woman to win her trust.
Avanelle Rein is merely trying to survive in the chaos of a dying society. The last thing she expects is rescue at the hands of golden-skinned alien men. Despite her attraction to them, she fears their warrior ferocity.
Facing danger from Xyran raiders draws the three together as they explore their new relationship and one another. An unexpected challenge during an ancient claiming right forces Avanelle, Bynton, and Mateen to decide if their bond is strong enough to survive.
