She knew aliens existed. She didn't expect them to be so damn HOT!
Indra has survived the worst human society can throw at her. Being rescued by aliens was the last thing she expected.
Now a guest of the latharian empire, she's looking forward to eating her bodyweight in chocolate cake and creating her very own army out of the ship's cleaning bots. What she didn't expect was a stuffed-shirt paladin of a second officer, or the fact she'd find his freaky level of control so fascinating and sexy.
Sent on a 'road trip' to recover an experimental artificial intelligence unit, she's stuck in a shuttle with her by the book, alien warrior. Determined to get under his skin, she discovers that beneath all that controlled restraint, her alien paladin is the sexiest alpha hero…
Can she play the game, without losing her heart? Or will she succumb to the passion of her alien paladin?
He seeks redemption for his sins. Love and a mate are not on the cards…
An atoned warrior with the scars of his shame marked in his skin, Nyek S'Vaan doesn't expect to be anything more than a garrison officer somewhere in the outer reaches. Until a surprise assignment on the empire's newest war cruiser brings him in contact with rare human females.
They are as fascinating as they are beautiful, even if one, Indra, drives him to distraction. When she is almost killed aboard, desperate measures are called for. A top-secret mission gets the humans away from the ship but then puts them in danger from pirates.
When Indra is taken, Nyek must face the shame of his past. He must face his demons and be prepared to kill to bring back the woman he loves, even if it means sacrificing himself in the process…
What a thrilling story!
A most unusual Latharian warrior; a Paladin, a champion. His background is significantly different from that of the average warrior (if you can call ANY Lathar warrior average 😁). Indra, as well, has had a dark and dangerous upbringing. They are well-suited. Is Nyek perfect? Is Indra? No. But it doesn’t matter: love is a powerful healer. “There’s no such thing as too broken.”
I love their story, and the extraordinary revelations they and their companions unearth. It’s a story I found myself unable to put down!
Not as expected
I’m a little disappointed in the story. Really bored me at times. Too much filler. I was rooting for Nyek. Pulled at my heart strings from the beginning. Indra grew on me. The story was incomplete. Indra’s life I understood. Hard life on earth. Her life circumstances were thoroughly explained. Nyek, not so much. Him being a Paladin and especially Vesh, was not completely explained until almost at the end. So all that he endured through out the book, left me confused. I don’t want to give anything away, but it seems like all the books are going in a different direction. I really enjoyed the earlier books. Full of excitement and adventure. I recommend because there are some returning characters and new ones I enjoyed. Just too many holes in the story for me to truly enjoy.
Witty, dramatic, and exciting
This book has it all thrilling action, intriguing Sci-fi technology, and heartwarming romance amid a fanaticism and bigotry backdrop. But Nyek and Indra also make the story fun and sexy. Indra’s sense of humor is wry yet hits the mark and Nyek is the perfect straight guy. Secrets are revealed baddies are confronted its a wild ride and great read.
