The love that remains…
Kivia Quigley never expected to be the mother-in-law to an eight-foot-tall pink alien, but she's not complaining. The widow is more than happy to have some joy in her family's life, for a change.
And when she meets Dr. Mafer H'looder, a brilliant Veraci scientist, she realizes that, despite their drastic physiological differences, they have a lot more in common than just being able to speak each other's languages.
Like grief, longing, and loneliness.
And a greedy, megalomaniacal psychopath determined to get what he wants out of both of them.
(Book 3 in the Maxim Colonies series.)
