She needs money, and fast… or her nephew dies.
Halle is at her wits end. She and her sister are working two jobs each, but even that's not enough for them to eat some days. And that's before the emotional toll of caring for a sick toddler. When they're landed with a huge medical bill, Halle has only one option left to her… signing up with the Latharian Mate Program.
Beyond all her hopes, she's matched immediately, and her alien 'husband' pays the fee she demanded without argument. She steels herself to become a mail-order mate for some alien guy, but when her match turns out to be a hideously scarred grump, her nerves flee the building.
Passing out at a guy's feet is an awesome first impression, right?
His mate is beautiful, delicate, and only interested in his money…
A former healer, Kaas V'aant knows that he's no oil painting, especially to a human. But a twist of genetics means that he won't get a second match, so when his mate is found, he agrees to whatever she wants, including the exorbitant amount of credits she demands before she'll even leave her planet.
But when his new mate faints at the first sight of him, Kaas realises he'll have to tread lightly. They say opposites attract… He has time, and more than enough money to buy her everything she wants…
Until he doesn't.
Events from his little mate's past catch up with her, forcing Kaas into a desperate race to save both his relationship… and his beautiful mate's life.
A definite must read!
An exciting addition to the series! Book 2 of the Latharian Mate series gives us Kaas V’aant story and it was everything I wanted and more. Halle would do anything for her sister and nephew and when it’s out to the test she finds herself as a match to be a mate for Kaas. Their first meeting didn’t go smoothly, but as she gets to know her new mate she discovers his has more to offer. What happens next was a exciting, steamy and enjoyable addition to the series. I loved how the characters relationship became more as the many twist that brings life to the storyline.
Loved this strong heroine and wounded warrior
I love that Halle is such a strong character even though she thinks she has to take on all of her problems by herself and not ask for help. I could feel her desperation to protect her sister and nephew and the fear of leaving them to be an alien bride. Kaas had many feelings to work through also, especially his insecurity in his own worth. While they work out their differences and fight a burning attraction the underbelly of humanity is plotting to cause their family pain. Another Latharian tale to warm your heart.
