Warrick Riya, captain in the Norlanian army, is betting everything that medical officer Sloan wants him as much as he wants her. He arranges for her abduction according to the traditions of their people, and takes her into the mountains to convince her that nothing would make him happier than spending the rest of his life as her husband.
Sloan Atarn has known for years that, like most Norlanian females, she’ll never be able to have children. She’s accepted that because of her faulty genetics, she’ll also never get married. When she wakes up in the mountains with the sexy Warrick telling her that he’s risking everything to make her his forever, she knows the right thing to do is to leave and let him live his life without her. If she can only bring herself to walk away from the only man she’s ever truly loved.
