He was her savior, but she was his salvation.
Jeannie Gardner escapes from her captors’ clutches only to find herself trapped on a planet far from Earth. When she is discovered by a muscle-bound warrior, she must prove to him, and the Council of Elders, that she is not a creature set free from a lab, but a sentient being from another planet.
If she succeeds, they will send her home. If she fails, she will be executed.
Risnar warrior Kren Bolep is duty bound to protect his village from the Monsuda and their creations. But this small pink-skinned female is different, special. As the bond between them grows, Jeannie’s vulnerability invokes Kren’s protective instincts, and he vows to uncover the truth and secure her future.
But there is a bigger threat looming. The Monsuda are coming to get Jeannie, and they’ll use whatever means necessary. When Jeannie is taken, Kren is forced to choose—disobey the Elders and place his people in danger, or lose the only person who makes him feel whole.

Oh, this is excellent! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
An amazing introduction to a whole new world filled with unique aliens! The world-building is excellent, with an interesting social setup. The Risnarish have some very unusual physical attributes, yet, they have general structure and many facial characteristics in common with humans. I adore Kren! He’s infatuated and extremely protective from the beginning, wanting to please her regardless of his own wishes. Kren is beset with fears regarding her acceptance into his society. Jeannie is amazing! She’s strong (well, most of the time), managed a daring escape, captured the hearts of nearly all the males in the Hahz community, and manages a bold maneuver that changed her immediate future in a positive (for her) way.
The Monsudans bring to life every alien abduction nightmare that has consumed the people of Earth for years! Yes, there is danger, yes, there are battles. They’re safe for now, but there is more to come. I can’t wait for the next book!
