What's a bigger disaster than being stranded on an ice planet with a bunch of aliens, never to return home? Resonating to the biggest jerk of all those aliens, of course. I hate M'tok, and it seems to be mutual. He thinks I'm ugly and unpleasant, and doesn't understand why I don't just fling myself at him. In his eyes, resonance has decided, and that's that.
Problem is, resonance keeps pushing us together. And when that doesn't make me jump into his furs . . . he steals me away from the camp. I can't avoid him if there's nowhere to go.
I want to hate him even more for that. But I keep finding out that M'tok isn't who I thought he was. And the man I hate? Doesn't hate me at all . . .
Contains mature themes.
