A Sci-Fi Spanking Romance set in a world where an alien judge gets to decide the fate of a human.
After twenty-year-old Zara Webb is arrested for delinquent behavior while living as an exchange student in an alien colony, she is placed into the custody of High Judge Galen Hosta. For the duration of her sentence, she will live in Galen’s home and under his authority, and the stern, handsome warrior will have the right not only to punish her in any way he sees fit, but also to take her to his bed and enjoy her beautiful body in any way he pleases.
Within moments of her sentence being pronounced, Zara finds herself over Galen’s lap for a painful, embarrassing bare-bottom spanking. But when she kneels at his feet, blushing crimson as she is made to thank him for her well-deserved punishment in the most humiliating way possible, she cannot hide her helpless arousal.
Over the coming days, Zara discovers that Galen’s mastery of her body will be far more thorough than she would have thought possible, yet even as she is brought to one intense, shameful climax after another, her need for him only grows stronger. But when her sentence is complete and she is no longer his prisoner, will she choose to stay by his side as his mate?
Publisher’s Note: Chosen by the High Judge is a stand-alone novel which is the second entry in the Under Alien Law series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Excerpt : Spanking his little Human
Zara Webb is in deep trouble. Apprehended for public drunkenness and a few other major no’s, she’s standing before the Vendu High Judge about to be sentenced. While the idea of public humiliation through her upcoming very public punishment mortifies her, she has bigger worries. For the public embarrassment will see the end of her studies in the exchange program and she won’t be able to help her sister.
Galen Hosta is instantly taken by the young human and, under the auspice of “helping her”, brings her into his home so that she may endure the Ordeal of Astra, which as I’m sure you can guess, is all sorts of sexy.
Likes: The pace of the story. The opening scene begins with Zara waiting for her sentencing and it moves quickly from there. Since this is the second story in this universe, the Vendu are already well-versed (mostly) in humans. I enjoyed the “ordeals” Zara was expected to go through as well as the modifications that were both modernized and changed to accommodate her virgin status. I loved the tattoos. Both Galen’s and Zara’s were a fantastic addition to the story. It really wasn’t until the end, but I really liked how Zara finally came into herself, as a submissive and the tiny bit of a brat that came out (not too much, but enough).
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, loved the sex scenes. CHOSEN BY THE HIGH JUDGE by Jaye Peaches is a standalone story with a happily ever after that we can all be happy to read.
The author continues the story of the Vendu and humans on earth in Australia. Zara Webb is to be sentenced by High Judge Galen Hosta for being drunk in public. The author shows more of Vendu society as Judge Galen offers Zara a way out. This book is fascinating following more insight into the Vendu warriors. I am looking forward to more books on the Vendu.
5* This is the sequel to Chosen by the Governor, but could easily be read as a stand alone. I love that this heroine is smart, strong, caring and capable, along with naughty, sassy and disobedient. The Judge is stern but continually shows mercy and understanding by tempering her punishments. I enjoyed this book. It was well-written and easy to read, and the plot was expertly developed. Of course, the super hot sex scenes and strict discipline also added to the entertainment value.
I am really enjoying this new series. The characters are well developed and the story line interesting . I hope it continues
Chosen by the High Judge takes place in the same world as Chosen by the Governor but can be read as a stand alone. I haven’t read the Governor story, but had no trouble following this world and the world it takes place in.
Zara was a easy to like character. She is strong, with a big heart and will do anything for those she loves, but she is also struggling with her emotions and not sure how to handle them.
Galen started out very stern and strict but it was fun to see how a human female made him feel all confused and conflicted. My favorite part of the book were the tattoos. Those were awesome.
I absolutely loved this book. Stayed up until the early hours to finish it! Zara agrees to a deal when she breaks the law. She has to stay with Galen and endure the Ordeal of Astra. There is a lot of discipline and spanking involved as well as some interesting tattoos! Galen and Zara will battle their own feeling before the end of the Ordeal. Do not miss this book! Cant wait for more.
This book is a great example of how different people can adapt and change. I loved that the H accepted and understood the difference between women of his world and those of Earth. Through out the story he was aware of needing her acceptance and understanding of everything involving her punishment. The H although submissive can she does have strength and courage. All and all very well thought-out and enjoyable story. Not the first story I’ve read by Ms. Peaches and will not be the last.
Wow, I loved this story. Ms. Peaches smooth writing takes you through a roller coaster of emotion, lust, and desire. Then she adds in the perfect amount of action, suspense and a unique storyline to keep you up WAY past your bedtime just to flip one more page…one more chapter…
Zara is an exchange student who is sentenced for punishment as a result of bad behavior. The handsome Judge allows her to experience it at his hands instead of public humiliation. This was an imaginative story and the best part was the application of tattoos that changed shape and color when she was sexually aroused. The Judge was stern but kind and the story moved quickly.
This author is always a one click for me and, once again, Jaye Peaches has outdone herself – delivering a romantic, sexy and utterly engaging tale. Zara and Galen form a relationship under circumstances that are difficult at best. Although bound together as judge and prisoner, the love, tenderness and passion the characters feel for each other permeates their story from the very first pages. Galen is a wonderful hero – strong and honorable; determined to uphold the law and deliver thorough, promised punishments. Zara is resilient and courageous with a sincere willingness to atone for her transgression. The discipline is strict, the love is real. Romance is generous and touching; the spankings never over the top and always delivered with true caring and concern.
Twenty year old Zara Webb’s life is changed forever with one silly mistake. Under Vendu law, Zara is charged with drunken behavior. She pleads guilty and is sentenced to a public whipping. Zara is horrified, the whipping is to be broadcasted globally. High judge Galen Hosta is moved by Zara’s situation and claims Zara for himself for the duration of her sentence. She still will be soundly spanked and must submit to Galen sexually. Zara has problems accepting Galen’s rules at times and finds herself over his knees often. She also finds great fulfillment as she learns to submit to him. Zara is confused and hurt when Galen starts to reject her, he is fighting his own demons and his growing need for Zara. What’s not to like when you have a strong alpha Alien, a earthlings who is beautiful in her submission ,steamy sex scenes and the right amount of spankings .Zara and Galen were so well attuned to each other and have great chemistry. I loved how Galen was stern with Zara and then slowly softened up while remaining dominant. I enjoyed Zara’s courage and resilience during her journey into submission. This book delivers on so many fronts, a interesting storyline, good characters and a lot of kink.
This is a sexy, fun sci-fi read. The plot and characters kept me turning the pages until the end. I didn’t read the first book in this series but this one stood alone just fine. Nicely done.
This book was great, i really liked it, the characters were lovely they all made the story worth while reading.

This book is a new and completely free standing story within the futuristic world of the planet Earth with the alien Vendu’s occupying the former continent of Australia. Zara is a native earthling living within the Vendu’s territory who runs afoul of their laws and faces sentencing in front of the High Judge, Galen Hosta. His ultimate sentence for her is to complete an historic Vendu challenge, the Ordeal of Astra. This is no simple task, and involves many and varied types of discipline, each administered by Galen. The story is well conceived, well defined and well written. The disciplines are exciting, enticing, and erotic. The sex is literally out of this world! This five star entity from Ms. Peaches will leave you completely satisfied, and will likely entice you to search out her first book in this series, Chosen by the Governor. Outstanding reading all around.
Zara had been arrested for drunken behaviour and had also been the complicit in the drunkenness of three of the students in her group they were Vendu and they had not ever experienced alcohol and to be found inebriated and causing a public disturbance was against everything the Vendu held sacred.
Zara had been sentenced and when the punishment had been decreed, the judge had allowed her a choice to be whipped in public or if she decided to undergo the Trial of Astra, she had chosen the latter to be carried out by Galen, the Vendu Judge was captivated by the small human.
In accordance with the Trial of Astra Galen was applying the punishment in a similar manner however Zara being a human prisoner meant that some of the punishments were tempered and also a little more spaced to ensure she was not permanently harmed.
The use of interactive inks in the form of body tattoo’s was something that I had never before encountered, the descriptions of the creatures and the ways in which the actual inks reacted to physical, emotional and mental stimulation and direction was totally mazing, it was very descriptive and the pictures were also ingenious.
I highly recommend this book the characters were very well described and the scenario’s in which they interacted will fill numerous hours with great reading, I will be sure to read any additional books in this series……
YEAH!!! Jaye did it again. I was so glad to step back into the same realm as the Governor of the last book. Now we get to find out about another human that has done wrong. Galen is a great judge that shows a bit of mercy. Actually he sees something more in Zara. Zara in turn violated the law and rules but took the punishment. She was brave and strong. At first, it seemed that she would be weak but that isn’t the case. And we find out more about why see is in the exchange program.
I was so happy to read about Freya and Marco. YEAH!!! Zara and Galen are an excellent pair. I actually enjoy reading about the inking. It is really cool. I hope we get to come back her again. There is so much more that can happen. ~ Goodreads
The Vendu dominated the galaxy for centuries. They came to Earth decades ago. There was a brief war, followed by an uneasy peace, and establishment of diplomatic relations. But the Vendu were well known for total conquest and enslavement of other worlds. What happened on Earth was unprecedented and not entirely welcomed by either side. Against this backdrop our story begins. Zara Webb is a student at New Ayers Rock Technology University. Her field of study is Vendu environmental technology. She’s genuinely invested in changing Earth’s environment. But she also has a deeper, forbidden reason for being there. Her entire life changes when she ends before a Vendu High Judge, charged with crimes against Vendu society. When she learns of her punishment, Zara’s terrified! It’s not just the loss of her student status. She’ll lose her one chance to save the most precious treasure in her life. Vendu society is rigid. The ruling of the High Judge is final. Zara pleads for mercy but receives the harshest of sentences. What is she going to do? She’ll be publicly humiliated. The cultural exchange program will ban her. Is there a way out? Can she escape? High Judge Galen Hosta sentences Zara. He’s not unaffected by her pleas for mercy but the law is clear. However, the little human intrigues him. After much thought, he offers Zara a choice. Accept the original sentence or consider an ancient alternative, one which, at least on the face of it, will save her from public humiliation. Zara accepts. But when she learns the details, she’s horrified! Can she handle this? Does she have the physical and emotional strength? Galen commands complete and utter obedience, total compliance, but he isn’t as unaffected by the little human as he likes to think. As a High Judge, he knows his duty. Can he do it? Does he even want to? His career is on the line. It’s impossible for him to ignore the letter of the law and his sentence. And what of Zara’s secret agenda? Then there are the forces wishing to destroy the fragile peace between the Vendu and Earthlings. They’ll go to any lengths to accomplish their twisted agenda. Anyone in authority is in the crosshairs. Will Zara, Galen, or anyone surrounding them even survive? Will her hidden agenda be uncovered? The better question is how will Galen react when he learns that all is not as it seems? One thing seems certain. The Vendu and Earthlings need each other. They have to establish lasting peace, regardless of the price that needs to be paid.
Jaye Peaches is a new author for me. This book took me by surprise because it’s not your average sci-fi erotic romance. The premise is very unique. I loved that the story is set on Earth, in the future, with the coexistence of two species. The story is creative, inventive, and incredibly HOT! But it also demonstrates an understanding of human nature and the fact that, as humans, we often don’t know ourselves quite as well as we think. There’s a true depth of emotion as well. While this is not technically a BDSM novel, it does contain many elements of BDSM which is a genre I love. The plot is well-developed. The characters are unique and imaginative. It’s very clear that Ms. Peaches has done a significant amount of research into the locations in which the story is set. The descriptions of the changes that have taken place over the decades in which the story is set are incredibly detailed and absolutely breathtaking. Jaye Peaches has created a very special story that shows her creativity and talent. I was captivated from beginning to end. This story is enchanting, and I’ve once again found another “favorite author!” I give Chosen by the High Judge my very best recommendation. Thank you, Jaye Peaches, for such a rare and exceptional treat. ~ Goodreads
