I promised myself I would never trust an alien. But with Zhori, I may not have a choice.
After being kidnapped by aliens, nearly rescued, and then snatched back by my captors, I don’t have much hope of getting rescued again. Still, I’m determined to fight back on my own, to break free and find some way off this horrible planet.
But when I’m put up for auction, my heart nearly stops when I see him in the crowd—the bronze-skinned alien who tried to free me before.
What is he doing here? Why did he come back?
My instinct is to assume the worst. Maybe he returned because he wants to steal me for himself. Maybe he plans to use me just like every other alien has.
But he keeps helping me. He keeps protecting me. And every time he does, it gets harder and harder to deny the truth.
This alien warrior may be the hero I need… and a temptation I can’t deny.
