Laurel Ormand doesn't know where she is or how she got there. Her head is bandaged and half of her hair is cut off, and a kindly alien is telling her he rescued her from the intergalactic slave trade. So why does she hear screams echoing in the halls of his space ship? When she follows the sound, her world is torn apart once more and she will need to rise out of the ashes if she is going to survive and make it to freedom.
Druath NaKam is a faithful soldier of the Detyen Legion. He's been trained to endure the worst hardships his enemies throw at him, even if his life is destined to be brutally short. But nothing prepared him for torture at the hands of a sadistic scientist with a grudge against Detyens. The only thing that can keep him sane is the woman on board who might be his destiny, but the road to escape is long and treacherous.
When Laurel and Dru thrust into a world on the brink of war, solving a centuries old mystery might be the key to saving Earth. But when an uncovered betrayal threatens to destroy Laurel, Dru will do anything to make her whole, no matter the personal cost. Laurel will need to find the strength to heal and Dru will need to become the warrior he was born to be if their bond is to flourish before all hope is lost.
Each Detyen Warriors novel can be read as a standalone, but read in order to get the most out of the mystery of why Detya was destroyed. Enjoy feisty women, alpha aliens, fated mates, and relationships hot enough to steam up your screen.
Interesting and exciting
Varrow has Dru as a prisoner on his ship and was performing experiments on him. He also had Laurel on his ship but he told her he had rescued her. She happened upon Dru and even though he was a soulless he recognized her as his Denya, his true mate. Laurel and Dru escaped but that was the beginning of her running from her big warrior because she was in denial. Then she got in more trouble with Varrow. Interesting and exciting story

Was fun to read. Good characters. A bit of mystery and an unknown past that needs to be discovered. Enjoyed reading just to see what would happen next
