When Winter Nayar goes undercover to expose the Humans for Earth Coalition, she doesn’t expect to discover a kidnapped alien. Jeopardizing herself and her story, she helps him escape—and complicates her world in ways she could never imagine.
Kasim Ta’nehr is desperate to get out of the hell-hole lab. He has no reason to trust Winter, but he’s in no position to save himself. Wary of being lured into a trap, he has no choice but to join forces with her.
It’s not long before he realizes Winter is something special. Smart, sexy, and generous—she’s everything Kasim longs for but knows he can never have. His scars run too angry and too deep to risk any kind of emotional intimacy. Keeping his heart cold and frozen is the only way Kasim survives. He can’t afford to break the ice—not even for the woman he’s grown to love.
