Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his bride. He takes her down, places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her.
Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent years rising through the ranks. Hallie is his reward, the beautiful sprite ensnaring him with a glance.
Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth. If she’ll submit, he promises pleasure and comfort. After a lifetime of hardship, his offer tempts her greatly.
One night with Hallie and Vicious feels his protective instincts flaring. He’ll do anything to make her happy and keep her safe, even if that means surrendering his heart. Though he intended to master her, Vicious realizes it may be his sweet Hallie who masters him.
Inside Scoop: Our heroine endures trials and violence with strength equal to that of her warrior mate. (She also witnesses F/F play, and endures a collar and light BDSM. Fortunately she likes that part.)

Grabbed by Vicious is the start of a new sci-fi erotic romance series by Lolita Lopez called Grabbed.
As a way to negotiate assistance from a more technologically advanced race the people of Hallie's planet agreed to set up a bride grab event in which the warriors are able to have a chance to chase down and "grab" a bride. Hallie finds herself captured in a bride grab by a huge sexy warrior who's name makes her shutter if fear, Vicious.
Vicious is a warrior's warrior he has made his way up to the rank of Colonel in the ground services part of the military for his people. He has always had a thing for busty blonds that is until he lays eyes on Hallie. Once Hallie is his he will do what ever it takes to make her happy and feel safe.
I am a closet geek and love the trend towards sci-fi and erotic romance blending. Ms. Lopez gives us a whole new culture and races to deal with in Grabbed by Vicious. The action and the sex is plentiful as is our alpha male apologizing for everything :O( When it says light BDSM it is only in just a couple of scenes and Vicious is rather soft when it comes to Hallie. I would have liked to see him be a little more alpha and take charge, the culture seems to be set up for that and yet he does a lot of worrying about upsetting Hallie.
Hallie is tougher than she looks and she is smart, loyal and adventurous. I thought that the BDSM could have been used a bit more as Hallie seemed to accept and adjust to everything thrown her way with no worries. We have a secondary storyline that is about changes coming in the way things are handled with the captured brides and a friendship with Vicious's friends and fellow warriors Malice and Terror.
Over all I enjoyed this read, I would rate it between a 3 1/2 and a 4, I will be sure to look for the next in the series as it looks to be promising.
About the Author:
While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.
As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.
Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.
Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues. She also writes super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica with a New Adult flavor under the pen name Roxie Rivera.
