Riley St. Claire has always followed her own rules. When she discovers her current employer is not as law-abiding as she thought, she has to leave town in a hurry or end up buried with the dead guy she discovered. What she doesn’t expect is to find herself being picked up by a passing trader from another world. As the ruling King of Sarafin, Vox d’Rojah was expected to produce a son who would be joined in marriage with the first-born daughter of the King of Valdier. The problem was Vox had no intentions of having any sons, at least not in the near future. He was quite happy with the wide selection of females he had at his disposal.

When he is captured by a ruthless Valdier royal and sold to a mining operation, the last thing he expected to find was his bride mate. Vox isn’t sure which would be easier: fighting another war with the Valdier or capturing and holding on to the human female who is unlike anyone he has ever encountered before. Now, Vox has to escape back to his world while fighting pirates, traders, and Riley! The King of Sarafin has met his match in Ms. Riley St. Claire from Earth. Now, he just needs to figure out a way to let her know he has chosen her as his Queen—and he has every intention of keeping her by his side forever.


She quickly finished putting her hair up, trying not to turn as pink as the scrunchie as she watched their eyes follow her breasts as they bounced up and down. She didn’t care how much support the manufacture promised; when you were as big as she was there was still going to be some bounce. She lowered her eyes, refusing to give into the desire to cross her arms protectively in front of her. The only thing that did was push up the watermelons she carried around. Instead, she clapped her hands loudly.

“Hello?” she snapped, shooting an evil eye at Lodar and Tor. “It’s rude to stare!”

Lodar cleared his throat as Vox turned to glare at his two friends. “Yes, well… I… We… They are beautiful,” he finally choked out with a sheepish grin. “And very difficult to miss.”

“I wonder if they contain milk.” Tor asked, unaware he asked the question out loud. “I would love to drink from them if they did,” he sighed.

Riley’s mouth dropped open as what Tor said sank in. “Oh. My. God. You did not just say that,” she sputtered before bursting into uncontrollable laughter. “Do they… Oh my god, that is priceless.” She continued to giggle, wiping the tears from the corner of her eyes with the end of her shirt, totally unaware the movement pulled the cloth up, exposing her creamy flesh again.

Vox’s loud roar ricocheted throughout the small room as he tackled Tor. The force of his shoulder hitting his chief engineer’s chest knocked both of them backward through the air several feet before they hit the hard floor and slid almost to the far wall. Vox’s sharp teeth gripped Tor’s throat in a stranglehold while his claws dug into Tor’s shoulders, pinning him to the floor.

“Bad kitty!” Riley shrieked out from behind him. “Let him go! You are a very, very bad kitty. You let go of him, or I’ll neuter your ass. Vox, release him this instant. If you don’t, I swear I’ll go to the guards and tell them I need to borrow their stun gun thingy. I mean it. I’m out the door in three, two, one…”

    Is downpour better than Audible? I noticed the pre-order price was cheaper.

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      I think they are about the same. They are a subscription service as well, but they offer physical CDs as well. I think the subscription is the same with listeners receiving credits to use as well.

  2. Linnea says:

    Hi I just bought this audio book but their seems to be a problem with the first chapter cause at least half of it is missing from the audio book

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Thank you for the heads up, Linnea. Which site did you purchase it from? I’ll make sure they fit the issue. I’ve had other readers who said it was just fine. Once it is corrected, you’ll be able to redownload it. It may be the site was having issues at the time. Either way, I’ll check into it.

      1. Linnea says:

        Hi I bought mine from iTunes and I also alerted customer service about the problem so they said they would investigate it too

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          Awesome! I’ll contact them and Blackstone as well. I’ve had several listeners say the story was great and didn’t mention any issues, so I think they probably bought it elsewhere which tells me that iTunes had a hiccup during the upload (not uncommon with files coming from an IT background). I always make sure the KBs match the upload file to the original. You are totally awesome to have contacted CS as well as giving me a heads up. Thank you so much!

      2. Yvonne says:

        I had the same issues with Audible. Half of the first chapter was missing, but the rest of the recording was fine.

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          I have the distributor working on it. I think they must have uploaded the Sample file and it is has overridden or is also included. They promised they are working on it! I apologize for the inconvenience. Argh!!!! I guess life would be boring if everything worked all the time. LOL I’m thinking of Pleasantville.

  3. Emma says:

    part of the story is missing in the audio book of choosing riley in chapter 1

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Emma. Did you download it? If so, try re-downloading it. In the meantime, I’ll take a look to make sure everything is correct.

  4. Emma says:

    the missing part of the story is the sample that you put up

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Where did you download it from? I’ll check to make sure they corrected it.

    2. Eva Bucknell says:

      I have the same problem. I downloaded my copy from Audible.

      1. S.E. Smith says:

        When did you download it? There was an issue with the first file My copy was right, but the narrator made an error when he set up the retail sample. I felt so bad for him. He was mortified! It was one of those one click things where it cut instead of copied. I’ve had it fixed since then. I’ll double check that all vendors have the corrected copy. It was a couple of paragraphs at the end of the first chapter that he cut out. I apologize for the issues. It was one of those last minute adds after it went to all the editors and myself which is why we had the correct versions of the audiobook. I’ve set guidelines in place so it doesn’t happen again.

  5. Terry says:
