When she is caught spying on the alien empire which has conquered Earth, Freya is shipped off to a prison colony on the distant planet Tagra. Upon her arrival, she is subjected to a thorough, intimate medical examination intended to assess her response to sexual stimulation, and when she protests the humiliating procedure her bare bottom is soundly spanked.
Marco takes his job as governor of Tagra seriously and he is well-known among the prisoners for his firm-handed discipline, but from the moment he first encounters Freya he cannot keep the feisty Earthling off his mind. After taking it upon himself to personally oversee her initial exam, he delights in bringing the naked, blushing human to one quivering climax after another.
Though Marco quickly proves that he will not hesitate to punish Freya when she defies the rules of the colony, her burning backside does nothing to diminish her growing need for him to claim her and take her long and hard. She soon finds herself falling ever more deeply in love with the handsome, dominant alien who both demands her submission and brings her pleasure beyond anything she could have ever imagined, but can she dare to hope that Marco will one day see her as more than just his prisoner and his plaything?
Publisher’s Note: Chosen by the Governor is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, medical play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Freya is scared, and confused. She has been put in a place that see’s all females as sex objects. Prisoners have very few rights and she is seen as a unique and desirable. Freya has no idea how to survive under these conditions, yet she must.
Marco is determined that Freya will be his. Yet at every turn he must discipline her for braking the rules. Frustrated with both Freya and the situation he is pushed to doing something he realizes should not have been done.
A story like this is entertaining in many ways, it has a great characters, and some BDSM, but it is not a hard-core book. There is alien species and yet it flows very smoothly. My favorite person would have to be the strong yet caring Freya. She is very real and makes you want to be there by her side as she gets into so much. Overall a great read!
Freya Caspari is a terrible spy. On her very first assignment to spy on the Vendu, she gets caught and is sentenced to life on a prison colony on a different planet. As the only human AND a female, life won’t be easy in CHOSEN BY THE GOVERNOR by Jaye Peaches.
Likes: The pace of the story. The opening scene begins with Freya already caught and the transition to the planet prison is fast. The world itself on Tagra has aspects of a dystopian world where the prisoners help to police themselves and seek to survive, if not thrive. The corporal punishment (spankings) was a nice addition to ways to seek submission, even if it didn’t work on Freya. The interactions and growing attraction between Freya and Marco.
Dislikes: So many times, I wanted to smack Freya on the head and tell her to wake up. There are aspects to the character that I found grating and I wanted to rush through those sections of the story, but I forced myself to slow down.
This was an enjoyable story. I generally enjoy science fiction/alien romances and this one did not disappoint. It has all the elements of good storytelling, with interesting characters and story arcs. And for those who are waiting for me to say it, I loved the sex scenes.
5* Amazon reviews
This author can write! I enjoyed every second of this book. It was the kind of read where you’re racing to the end, but then sad the story is over. Marco and Freya were perfect, evolving as individuals and coming together as a couple. The steam factor was high and loads of fun! I also loved the story outside of the sex scenes. The success in bringing some form of order to the penal colony and the part that both of the main characters played in accomplishing that was exciting and satisfying.
This was a great read and I absolutely recommend it!
Omg…I truly enjoyed this beautiful breathtaking love story of bdsm. I just wished the author given us the reader a little more of the life back on Earth for Freya & Marco. Please make a part 2 of this story.
I enjoyed this book! The sci-fi theme was different and offered suspense, danger, adventure, romance, love and quite a bit of steam. I was hooked on the story from the beginning and it kept me turning the pages until the end. Nicely done!
I really love reading and I read everything. I refuse to give good reviews to bad books. I would rather not review a bad book (each person has their own likes and dislikes and I don’t like hurting an author’s ratings), unless it is truly awful.
Yes, this book has spankings, sex scenes, medical play, and some light of BDSM, but the overall story is what really captured my attention.
Earth has been invaded. A truce was made and the invaders were given land of their own. The rest of the planet is left to Earthlings but they are in need of the alien technology to survive. Enter Freya, who agrees to help try to acquire the needed tech. Of course, she is caught and railroaded and sent to a penal colony. Enter Marco, the Governor. He is trying to improve conditions at the colony and she is just wants to do what is right and humane. He tries to save her from herself and her errors in judgment.
The story is engrossing and I could not put is down. This book has more story than sex scenes (I really like story more than sex scenes). The story wraps up pretty nicely (though not totally wrapped). If I had read this book through my Kindle Unlimited, I would have purchased it as a keeper.
Jaye Peaches has written another wonderful story! I love sci-fi erotica and big sexy aliens! Freya finds herself on an alien penal colony and between a rock and a hard place. She can do hard dangerous work or become the mistress of the governor Marco. She agrees to become his mistress and must learn the rules and discipline that goes with that assignment. This story had a really good plot with some twists and turns to it as well as many erotic scenes.
i really enjoyed this book! It has everything i look for in a romantic book – interesting story, well developed characters, hot sex with elements of discipline, anal, medical, and BDSM, and the all important happily ever after ending.
I should note that i received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an advance review copy, however this did not in any way influence my opinion and review. If you’re looking for an erotic book that also has a very interesting storyline, this is it. Enjoy!!
Forget the advice not to judge a book by it’s cover. Chosen By the Governor is every bit as hot as it’s sexy cover suggests. An engrossing sci-fi that centers around the heroine Freya, a spunky and brave human out to save her race; and Marco, the Governor of the planet where our heroine is sent for punishment when her grand plans for saving her planet don’t quite work out. There’s fantastic spanking scenes – typical of Jaye Peaches, she writes great, detailed stuff – and the story itself is genuinely engrossing and possibly set-up for a continuation. Med play, BDSM, and all the hot sexy scenes we all love.
I received a copy of this book from Stormy Night Publications as an advanced review copy. I enjoyed the sci-fi twist to this story. Freya is sent from Earth to an alien penal colony. The Governor of the colony, Marco, is very attracted to her from the beginning. Freya is in a strange place and has to adapt to the rules. Hot sexy scenes with discipline. Couldn’t wait to see how it all turned out. Have quite a few Jaye Peaches books on my kindle. She is an author I enjoy reading. She tells a great story.
Jaye Peaches has once again written an entertaining erotic spanking book that leaves the reader anxiously looking forward to her next book. This time we have a first class science fiction, future world, inter-galactic, inter-planetary story of conquest. Earth has been colonized by a humanoid like race called the Vendu. Freya, our earthling heroine, has been sentenced to life imprisonment on a penal planet called Tagra. On her journey to that planet she meets, and is subsequently “chosen” by the planet’s new Governor, Marco. Her story of redemption, via submission to Marco, and their path to harmonized love is presented from each’s individual thoughts and observations. This is a long, well crafted story of tolerance, understanding, and love. It also has some of the most erotic, steamy, spanking/sex scenes ever written. Even if Sci-Fi has not been your normal thing, Jaye Peaches will make it that way for you with this book. I received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an advance review copy, and if you are like me, once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it down.
Steamy Sci-Fi! Freya is caught spying and sent to a prison colony on a distant planet. When she arrives she is subjected to an intimate medical exam and punished with a spanking when she protests. Marco the governor can’t stop thinking of Freya and demands her submission. This is a fast paced ready with punishments and steamy sex. I liked it!
Wow! This was a captivating and spell-binding story. Recommend it to everyone that likes a good spanking, dominate and submissive story. It was written with taste, not trashy like a lot of stories on spanking, Dominate and Submissive stories. What a wonderful ending, I love a HEA ending! Buy and read Chosen By the Governor, you will be happy you did!
Liked the whole storyline it was hot and bold. And technology heroine was a strong and courageous, even being submitting to her Master.
Chosen by the Governor – wow what a novel! This sci-fi romance transports the reader into the alien Vendu world. Intensely emotional at times, Peaches portrayal of these alien humanoid warriors in glorious Technicolor evokes their culture and their lifestyle. She pulls one in right from the word go. One cannot help but fall in love with her characters who are off the charts awesome and will leave one swooning, drooling and panting over them long after the novel is finished. Peaches has indeed come a long way since her first novel. She has honed her word craft and found her signature sensuality. The Vendu consider themselves a superior race to humans. Larger, brawnier with a denser muscle the Vendu are a fierce warrior race that are physiologically and technological superior to earthlings. They also have a different ideology and hence philosophy to us. Despite their superior intellect, they have some rather old-fashioned concepts regarding women. To the Vendu, women were solely for the two P’s – pleasuring and propagating. There were no women soldiers among the Vendu. It was unheard of. Obviously, women’s lib had never reached their planet. Such a ripe backdrop for sci-fi erotica and Peaches dives in to deliver much to one’s delight. After a bloody war that almost destroyed Earth a peace treaty was negotiated with the Vendu. Highly unusual for the Vendu who are known to completely conquer and subjugate the vanquished. Enter Freya, the spunky and self-reliant heroine falsely convicted of spying and sentenced for life on the harsh planet of Tagra. The Vendu have transformed Tagra using terra forming technology one that could definitely help Earth. As a prison colony, it is not much different from the worst prisons on Earth where corruption and all manner of base human activity is rife. Hottie pattatie Vendu Marco is the new governor posted to Tagra. Their encounters are intense and sizzling with passion. There is no denying the chemistry between them. She is torn between her scruples and Marco’s offer of an easier life. Should she succumb to the one person who can keep her safe on the notorious Tagra? Oh the irony and her delicious torment! Peaches adeptly paints Freya’s dilemma. Can Freya resist the sexpert Marco? The Vendu freely practice eroticism without any restrictions. However, the emotions of love and humour indulged by earthlings are unfamiliar to the Vendu. This novel is full of curveballs and kinky sex. Can the independent and headstrong Freya adjust to the Vendu lifestyle and culture that is poles apart from hers? Can the Vendu especially Marco understand Freya’s emotions and needs? Can she stay out of trouble? Marco cannot help but admire the fragile earthling Freya’s steadfast loyalty to her friends and her strong sense of justice incidentally not shred by the Vendu and albeit to her detriment. I guess I have said too much. Anymore and my review will be a spoiler. You will have to read this novel to discover the rest for yourself.
Certainly not for the fainthearted.
Nice…. it’s been awhile since a read it, so I remember only parts and pieces that shocked mr and made me laugh. But I remember that it was a very interesting book that I very much enjoyed and will read again.
Good Sci-Fi romance. Really good, and hot…
