Meagan Cooper has spent her entire life safely tucked away in her father's Court. As the President's daughter, her life has always been more or less decided for her. Just six months shy of marrying her fiancé Daryn, a high-ranking military man, she can't help but begin to feel trapped in her monotonous routine. But, when Earth is invaded by the Samou, a race of dragon-shifting aliens from one of the Empire's mining planets, her life suddenly takes a very drastic turn.
Kidnapped by the human rebels who have joined forces with the Samou, Meagan is ripped away from the security of her home and thrown into the parallel universe of life outside the Capital city. Terrified and alone, she somehow finds comfort in the one person she never expected to. Chronos is the Samou lead warrior. A muscular, exotic, aggressive man, he takes it upon himself to challenge Meagan. He forces her to face the reality of corruption and greed that permeate the Empire she so loyally continues to defend.
As the tension between them grows, so does the attraction. The lines between anger and desire quickly become blurred, and in the end, Meagan will be faced to choose between the man she can't resist and the life she's always known.
