The Stubborn Lord
A Qurilixen World Novel
Once mated, these shifters will do anything to protect the women they love!
Kendall Haven's life turns upside down when she's taken from her fueling dock home by thugs. Her gambler father used her to cover his losses. Treated like cargo, she's sold to the highest bidder--an alien bride procurement agency.
Landing on a primitive planet on the far edge of the universe, she has no intention of fulfilling her father's contract--even if that contract includes marriage to a very handsome, very sexy, very intense barbarian of a man. He might be everything a woman fantasizes about, but he wants more of her heart than she can give.
Dragon-shifter nobleman Lord Alek has not been lucky in finding his life mate. Resigned to a lonely life, he attends the bridal ceremony out of familial duty. Then the impossible happens--Kendall. Nothing goes according to tradition, but he can't let that dissuade him. She is this dragon noble's only chance at happiness and he's not going to let her get away.

Kendall hasn’t had the best luck but Alek is just what she needs, if only she’ll admit it. Fast fun read in the Galaxy Brides part of the Dragon Lords. Likable characters, great world building and a fun story that is fast paced tied into a great romance.
“Suddenly, swords and dungeons weren’t sounding too bad.”
Kendall never planned on being a bride, but as the responsible member of her family she finds herself not only with a too good to be true man, but desperately trying to get back home in time to take care of the responsibilities that give her life meaning.
Alek was ready to give up on finding a wife when Kendall appeared in his life. He'll do anything to settle their marriage and make her happy, no matter how challenging, but will it be enough when he can't get this mysterious woman to explain why she wants to leave.
This done in one book sees family loyalty and responsibility from two different angles as a new couple struggles to find their happily ever after when their lives are anchored in very different places.
