Alison Aimes is the award-winning author of the sexy sci fi
Condemned series and the contemporary romance Billionaire's Revenge series.
A graduate of Brown and Northwestern University with a PhD in Modern History, she's always had a love for dramatic stories and great books. Now, she's moving across eras to create sexy stories full of intrigue, action, and passion, but always with a happy ending.
She lives in Maryland with her husband, two kids, and her dog. When not in front of the computer, she can be found hanging with family and friends, hiking, trying to turn herself into a pretzel through yoga, listening to TED talks about pretty much anything, but especially space, or, last but not least, sitting on her couch imagining her characters' next great adventures.
You use me for protection. I use you for pleasure. Simple as that.
Cadet Bella West has one simple objective when she joins the scientific mission to Dragath25, the notorious penal planet housing Earth’s condemned. She will accept any risk to enable her siblings to share in the disappearing resources reserved for Earth’s elite. But when her shuttle crashes, her simple mission becomes complicated fast. Now, to stay alive she’ll have to depend on one of Dragath’s own. But such protection doesn’t come free.
Convicted of a crime he didn’t commit, ex-soldier Caine Anders has become more beast than man after eight grueling years on an unforgiving planet of dirt and rock—and even more treacherous inhabitants. He doesn’t look out for anyone but himself and he certainly never grows attached. So when the bold female offers him pleasure in return for protection, he takes the deal without hesitation. He never expects how her touch will alter him. Or the realization that saving her may be the key to his own salvation.
But caring for someone on Dragath25 may be the greatest hazard of all.
