Help isn’t coming.
When Carise wakes up on an alien planet running is her only chance at escape, even if being caught means death.
She’d rather die than face whatever her captors plan to do to her.
Guerran is no safe place for healing and every moment is fear. Until Jaek, a gentle giant of an alien, makes himself her protector. But when their fragile bond is tested, Carise knows she must find strength within herself to become brave enough to survive Guerran.
This time she won’t let herself be taken. And she’s not leaving her mate behind.

He’s a protector
He’s a protector.
I really liked Jaek. He’s a well defined character with a solid character arc.
Carise has to depend on him for survival.
Carise and Jaek
I loved Carise and Jaek’s story!! Carise has been abducted from earth and sold, and sold and sold through the galaxy and ended up on Guerran, a planet for exiles. She wakes up from a drug stupor and makes a run for it. She meets Jaek when she is in trouble with a merchant. Jaek is a gentle giant in a see of criminals. Will he be able to protect Carise? When her sister is on planet will she whisk her away? Can Carise stand up to her big sister and truly find herself?
