New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author of Science Fiction and Paranormal Romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world. Ariel Hamm has always had a tender heart. Her love for her sister, Carmen, and her best friend, Trisha, has always been a priority in her life. But at twenty-eight, she is ready to start focusing on what she wants. After her fiancée unexpectedly ends their engagement, she is searching to redefine who she really is. A pilot for Boswell International, she knows flying is not her first love. Unhappy, she finally makes a decision based on what she wants - to live on the property she purchased in Wyoming and care for the stray and neglected animals that have always captured her heart. Her plans change suddenly when she finds herself on a warship headed for a distant planet. Determined never to let another man distract her from her dream or break her heart, Ariel makes plans to escape and make her way back home no matter what. What she doesn't expect is the alien male who is just as determined to keep her by his side! Mandra Reykill never expects to find his true mate so unexpectedly - or so painfully. He knows his older brother is returning home with his true mate and her friends, but never suspected his true mate could be among the women. His dragon recognizes her immediately, and falls in love with the delicate beauty. His symbiot is enchanted with her gentle touch and kindness. Unfortunately, all Mandra the man gets is a stubborn female refusing to acknowledge his claim on her and determined to escape him at the first available moment. To top it off, his nice, orderly life is suddenly turned upside down when he finds his home - and his warship - suddenly infested with creatures from all over the galaxy that are just as taken with his mate as his dragon and his symbiot. Now, he needs to find a way to convince Ariel he is the alien for her while trying to keep his sanity! But, he is not the only alien wanting to claim Ariel; another has set his sights on Ariel and is just as determined to claim her. Can Mandra convince the stubborn human female who has captured his heart their future together can be her new dream before she escapes him forever?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambushing Ariel Smith returns to Valdier with another fast paced, action packed, romantically thrilling novel that took me to a completely different world. There were definitely more than a few ‘giggle-snort’ moments throughout this novel. The characters and the action all come together in such a unique manner that the realism bounds from the page as I felt as if I were on Valdier and part of the tale. The male/female dynamics (and numbers) on Valdier were fascinating. The way that Smith develops this gave me a lot of insight into the culture on Valdier while also furthering the exciting plot. The ferocity and utter caring of these human females dropped into the mix is an unforgettable mix. I love how closely bonded they are to one another and how their beliefs clash with those on Valdier, yet also meld with them. I enjoyed the extra time getting to know Mandra before he felt the pull of his True Mate. Not only did I get to know him well as an individual but I also got a lot of insight into what it means to be a dragon & a Valdier. Mandra and Ariel broke my heart just a little. Both of their convictions that they are unlovable makes them both an unlikely and perfect pair. Seeing these two overcome the cultural divide between them, and actually taking the time to learn & compromise rather than simply giving up who they are was heart-warming.
