Since the day his family was murdered, Boris has been obsessed with vengeance. The last thing he needs in his life is a mate. Besides, what sort of female would want a scarred, crippled male who has taken a vow of silence? Nope, there is no room in his life for a female.
Then he meets Nassir.
Beautiful. Fragile. Distant. He wants to break through the barriers she keeps erecting to discover the real woman inside. Which might be easier if he wasn't constantly pulling her out of danger.
On the run, hunted, and alone, Nassir knows she only has herself to rely on.
Until Boris comes back into her life. The dark one. The silent, watchful bodyguard whose gaze heats her from the inside out and whose touch drives her insane.
If only she knew whether he truly cared about her or just enjoyed kissing her. Then she might find the sort of happiness she'd been searching for her whole life.
I adore finding good sci-fi mate stories! I love the entire Zerconian series and this one is a welcome favorite to the growing list! I love that the pretty princess stereotype is broken and realistically changed. I love that the silent bodyguard is still full of depth and communication and cleverness. And I love how they come together as a perfectly fitting couple! The action thoughtful and intriguing and amazing as always!
I really love justified bloodthirstiness when villains try to unspeakable things to the protagonists too. It makes you shout out in victory for the characters. I also enjoy the humor and quick-wittedness of the comedy that ease tense topics. And don’t forget the steamy romance! Such a perfect blend!
Now I just need a book about each of the side character warriors!!! I love this series so so soooo much!
