He saved her from certain death. She didn't count on him being a… nerd.
A Tarviisan pit fighter forced to fight for survival her entire life, Zadaenae is sure she's about to breathe her last when she's cornered during a breakout. But help comes from an unexpected quarter; an alien with the infamous Warborne Mercenary team. Only her savior isn't an experienced mercenary, he's a scientist without a clue about fighting…
Wracked with guilt over his injuries saving her, she takes a hire with the Warborne to stick around, even though the last thing she needs is the scarily intelligent, utterly fascinating human finding out her deepest, darkest secret…
He nearly died. Then he became something else. Something… not human.
Dr. Eric Archer has all the smarts he's ever needed, but multiple degrees don't mean anything on the alien mercenary vessel, Sprite. Instead of working in a lab, he's had a crash course in battlefield tactics, field stripping alien rifles, and shooting just to stay alive and earn his place among the lethal aliens.
She's an alien. And a princess. He needs to up his game to have any chance…
When rescuing a beautiful damsel in distress almost kills him, an experimental alien treatment saves his life. And makes him more than human. Makes him something… else. Forced to deal with more new muscles than he knows what to do with, plus hormones and instincts no human has ever encountered before, Eric must navigate his new abilities and prove to alien princess Zadaenae he's the only man she'll ever need.

Alien Mercenary’s Destiny by Mina Carter
Great book from Lathar Mercenaries Warborne series. This is the story of Zad and Eric with the Warborne rescuing Zad from the Tarviisan fight pits . Upon the rescue of Zad it revealed Eric as her consort . It explains why Zad was in the pits put there by her mother . So much happens with the Warborne coming to the rescue that they each are made to come away as heroes . I love this series and can’t wait for the next book.
3.5 stars. Not really what I was expecting. I think I would have preferred Eric as himself and not so enhanced. Along with his body, his entire demeanor changed. Eric, the Eric, was lost. Perhaps if it was a gradual change and not instantaneous, I would feel better about it. Zad I liked. Very, very insecure, but understandable. Her mom was a complete b*tch! I did not like that Zad did not go and address her brothers. I felt her life story was rushed and incomplete. Her brothers just learned she was alive, then lost her to Eric. Just felt incomplete. Perhaps there will be more when they locate her halo. Looking forward to the next Warborne.
