There’s nowhere on Earth she can hide from her ex—so she’ll hitch a ride off-planet with the first alien she can find. Even if she has to marry him.
It’s been over a year since Vicky Ortiz left her abusive ex-boyfriend, and she’s been on the run ever since. No matter where she goes, Thomas tracks her down. She barely escaped last time—and she’s certain that the next time he finds her, he really will kill her.
So she escapes to the one place he can’t follow her: the Alien Warriors’ Reparation Brides Program.
Draakvhed warrior Qhaal doesn’t really want a mate. Not yet. But if he doesn’t accept his place in the program now, he may never get another chance.
So when he’s matched with a human woman who wants nothing more than safety, he jumps at the chance to create a detailed nuptial contract. No emotions and very few strings—protection for her and heirs for him. It seems like the perfect arrangement.
Until he meets her and realizes he wants much more than their contract allows.
Now he has two weeks before their mating ceremony to convince her that he could be more than an alien of convenience—or their contract will be enforceable for the rest of their lives.
