A determined alpha warrior…
When aliens make their presence known to the population of Earth they bring the news of impending war with them. The enemy who destroyed their home planets is approaching Earth. Zaryq, the leader of the Za'Artha, is determined that his people survive and repopulate their ranks. They'll share their advanced technology in return for the right to test human females for compatibility as mates.
A desperate woman……
Wynter Fields lives under the suffocating rule of two powerful political parents. She's doomed to marry a man she despises, or risk the safety of the only person she loves. When Earth's women are asked to volunteer for testing she hopes she's found a way to escape. All she has to do is reach her destination unnoticed.
Nothing ever comes easy…….
Strong in public but willing in the bedroom, that's the requirement to become an alien mate. But that isn't all. A rite of passage…the Mating Challenge...must be conquered before the final mate ritual can be completed. With only six days to train with her warrior for the rigorous test ahead, tensions run high. If Wynter isn't strong enough to survive the life threatening challenge, Zaryq will be forced to let her go. Losing the Mating Challenge is not an option.

WYNTER'S WARRIOR is the first book in the Mating Challange series by Mardi. I loved her other series, so I figured I would give this book a try. I found the storyline interesting, and it flowed well throughout the book.
I always find it interesting to see how authors take the alien mating to humans approach and put their spin on the rituals. I felt pretty bad for Wynter, but she comes into her own rather quickly in the story, becoming the type of mate worthy of the Captain.
I found it a bit violent for my tastes, but the writing was good and Mardi Maxwell did a great job changing up a genre that can get a bit repetetive by throwing in the challanges that Wynter and Zaryq had to face.
