Scaly, grumpy, but oh so cuddly...

As a third daughter on the farming colony of Meterion, Susan’s future prospects aren’t too promising. A pretty face, top-notch skills, and hard work mean nothing if your dowry doesn’t include fertile lands. With her twenty-fifth birthday approaching, and no suitors even remotely sniffing in her general direction, Susan will be forced to leave the family lands to work as an indentured servant in the capital city. Her only way out is to settle for an arranged marriage through the PMA – the Prime Mating Agency. She just never expected to be paired to a grumpy, massive lizardman, and above all not to grow so fond of his scales and quirky ways.

With everything going on, the last thing Olix needs is a mate, especially a squishy, scaleless, off-worlder with strange ways, and an obsession with farming. He is a Hunter, not a dirt digger. The Seer must have been mistaken when she insisted that, for the sake of the people, he take a mate from the stars. How can such a tiny thing be their salvation? And yet, his Susan’s softness is disturbingly addictive while hiding a surprising resilience.

With his ancestral lands on the line and the future of the clans threatened, could this wisp of a woman turn their fate around?

I absolutely loved I Married a Lizardman! I’ve been on a quest for the next great alien romance series upon devouring everything by Ruby Dixon, and I think I found a winner! It all starts with Susan, a third daughter on a farming planet. Being third born essentially means she just an extra, unwanted, and unneeded. She’ll never own her own land, so she heads to a matchmaker to find her a husband. Well, they find who they claim to be her perfect match. Olix is the leader of his clan on a planet with extremely fertile soil, just waiting to be worked. Unfortunately, Olix’s species aren’t farmers and don’t see the benefits of playing in dirt. But Susan has farming in her blood and will change their minds!

I Married a Lizardman was a delight from the very beginning! I immediately liked Susan and I was cheering for her to get her man and make his planet thrive! I also really liked Olix. He has no clue about humans but he’s trying his best! All he wants is to please his new wife and keep his tribe from starving or compromising their values. It’s a delicate balancing act given how badly she wants to start a farm and how against it the entire tribe is. From there it’s an excellent story about acceptance, prejudice, capitalism, colonization, and of course, love. I was just here for all of this and and wait to read more!

Sharing is caring!
