A deathbed promise and a cruel temptation.
For Jules to release herself from a painful past, she must break a promise and learn to love again.
The faithful widow promised her husband she’d never love another. She kept her oath, no matter how painful the cost. The days were easier, filled with work and the fight against the Zeta Empire but nighttime brought her more loneliness on a ship filled with fated mates.
When a skirmish traps her in a confined engine room with a massive blue alien, she panics. His very presence effects her on a very deep, primal level. The feelings that she worked so hard to deny for so many years threaten to overwhelm her completely.
Ryzko was dedicated to the cause but his heart longed for a fated mate he’d never yet met. The females on the ship held no interest for him until he found himself barricaded with a pale Terran who was adamant she was not interested in him in the slightest.
The quiet red haired Terran intrigued him. The blush that rose on her creamy skin drove him to divine despair. Her scent, the gentle sway of her hips, even the way she said his name intoxicated him. There was no mistake she was his fated mate.
Their cause be damned: he would do whatever it took to stop her intended one-way mission no matter the consequences.
Can the blue, alien warrior beast break the redheaded Earth-girl free from her painful past?
