Ten years have passed since Jessica had lost her husband during The Flare--- a blaze of fire that had quickly enveloped the entire earth in an explosion of brightness, designed to aid in the attack of the Xantrax Clan which is an alliance of evil aliens from different planets. Since then, she hasn't opened her heart again to anyone, not even to her close friend Rob who's been openly expressing his romantic feelings for her.
Vestix Warriors, sworn enemies of the Xantrax Clan, have lost their planet in the process of helping humans and have since lived on earth to work with the military in protecting the earth. When good-looking alien soldier 1X57VTZ, whom Jessica nicknames One, gets assigned to work with her on a school security project, she couldn't believe her bad luck. To make it even worse, he is also tasked to protect her 24/7 from an evil alien who's out to make her his queen!
Will living together and seeing One's humane side finally make Jessica fall in love again? And will One actually choose her and fulfill her dream of building a family over his military ambition and pledged duty to protect the earth?
