In the land of Barbar, female sorcerers created a realm separate from the barbarian males. Only for reproduction do the females seek out men.

Eliza is the future priestess of the female clan and it's her time to gather seed. As a young female, she chose Bruton as her seed giver. His rippling muscles and sweet words fascinate her but she knows she can't accept anything but his seed. Her people need her and she must return to them even if she leaves her heart with her Barbarian Mate.

Eliza doesn't remember her childhood in Barbar, but Bruton does, just as he remembers capturing her two years earlier as she spied on him at his bath. She was too young to collect his seed then, so he set her free. He's been waiting for the day Eliza would return but this time he intends to keep her. He binds her body to keep her at his side but can his love and their explosive passion bind her heart to his or will she return to her people with his seed and his heart?

Barbarian! The word burst from Eliza’s lips. Anger and frustration flooded her within as she watched the warriors dismount in the center of the village. A clanswoman came forward and escorted the bedraggled captives to the community lodge. Thoughts of what Bruton may have done with the captives tainted her joy at seeing him. Turning the reins of his stallion over to a young boy, Bruton ducked into his lodge, ignoring the females. Eliza rolled her tense shoulders—jealousy was not an acceptable emotion for the future Liberian Priestess but she feared that was what was burning in her chest. Had Bruton coupled with any of the females? She squared her shoulders and raised her chin. It did not matter, for her only interest in the barbarian was for his seed. Eliza thought of walking into the village to gather the seed she required, but now her pride would not allow it. She considered a rival clan, another seed giver, but her stomach rebelled at the thought. No. It was Bruton’s seed she wanted.

Within minutes, the flap to Bruton’s lodge shoved aside and he stepped out. Stripped of the warrior’s garb, he stood now with massive thighs spread apart, clothed only in traditional breeches and knee-length boots. His dark hair hung about his shoulders and muscles flexed in his arm as he raised his hand in greeting to another barbarian. Her tongue stuck to the roof of her suddenly dry mouth. She was of age and ready for seed. She clenched her thighs, wetness leaked from her core. She was ready, ready for the act of acquiring seed.

Tasha, her longtime friend, stepped from a nearby lodge, quickly followed by Tilo her seed giver. It was good to see Tasha was well—it was obvious she had born her barbarian a babe. From the distance, she could not discern the words as Tilo approached his warlord. Bruton placed a hand upon Tilo’s shoulder as they spoke. A sudden smile lit Bruton’s usually somber face at Tilo’s words. Whatever Tilo said had pleased Bruton. She wondered if they spoke of the females. She crossed her fingers, hoping he would not enter the community lodge—she wasn’t sure her heart could take such a blow.

Her breath left her body in a rush when he spun on his heels and headed for the river. His tight breeches conformed to his well-developed thighs and ass, bringing a moan to her lips. Making her way quietly through the trees, she reached the river’s edge. Disappointment flared that the pooled water already hid his impressive form from her eyes.

Two Lips Reviews
Eliza has come into season and needs to gather seed. The only seed she wants though is from Bruton. Having never been with a man before, she’s nervous and fears rejection but knows that she must go after what she wants. While the elders have told her what to expect, she's completely unprepared for how he makes her feel.

Bruton has been waiting for Eliza. He fears that she won’t want him beyond his seed and will take his seed and offspring back to her coven, never to return. He’s determined to make her want to stay by his side by introducing her to the pleasures of being with a man.

L.A. Day brings to light the influence that society has on beliefs and norms and the negative impact it can have on its citizens. The beautiful love story between Eliza and Bruton never should have been which only adds to its glory and sense of rightness. When it comes to Eliza, Bruton is anything but a barbarian - his soul is gentle and full of love and passion for her. Bruton is definitely the type of alpha male any woman would want in her bed and Eliza is a strong, noble woman that any woman should want to emulate. Together they are a memorable couple that you can't help but become attached to. I thoroughly enjoyed Barbarian Mate and highly recommend reading it!

Romance Junkies
Eliza is a major player in her female clan and it is time to go and find a male to impregnate her. She has already made her choice and Burton is her chosen man. Eliza knows that she is only to mate with Burton and then go back to her clan, but she feels so much more than she should for Burton. It is tradition that the women don’t stay or fall in love with the men, but Eliza just may be the female that breaks that rule.

Burton has known Eliza since she was a child and has longed for the day when she became a woman and would mate with him. Burton knows the way of her clan and that women don’t stay with the men they choose to sleep with. He is hoping to change that by proving to Eliza than there is much more than mating to be found in their relationship. Can Burton convince Eliza to give up the traditions of her clan and stay with him?

A twist on the normal romance, the women are in control and the men have to take the orders for a change. Readers will delight in this awesome tale of role reversal. Eliza is a character that jumps off the pages, she knows it is wrong to fall in love with a male, but she can’t help herself. You feel her torn feelings at being caught between her clan and the man she loves. Burton is everything a hero should be, strong, determined and out to get his woman. L.A. Day is fast making a name for herself as a fantastic author with captivating characters and intriguing plots.

Eliza, a future Liberian Priestess, has one mission: to obtain the seed of a Barbarian named Bruton. After gathering it, she will return to her home and hopefully give birth to a healthy baby girl. All she has to do is survive the coupling.

But drop-dead gorgeous Bruton has other ideas. He will show the beautiful, spirited Eliza the joys of mating and prove that the gender separation practiced by the Liberian Elders, and forced on their daughters, is wrong. He also does not wish for her to return to her coven with his child. In this matter, he has the support of his friend, Tilo, and Tilo's mate, Tasha. Tasha had been on a seed gathering quest of her own but decided to stay with Tilo rather than return to her oppressive life.

BARBARIAN MATE is a delicious battle of the sexes. Surprises await everyone and the lovemaking is hot and sweet. The writing is lyrical, fresh. L. A. Day takes her very believable characters through the wonders of love's discoveries as they find that love can overcome false teachings and build on hope and earned faith. BARBARIAN MATE is a yummy, double-fudge ice cream with peppermint chips and marshmallow crème treat. Enjoy!
