Hiding from her abuse husband, Brenda makes a stunning decision that impacts the rest of her life. When a handsome alien approaches her in the woods and promises her a new life, she weighs her options and goes for it. When the Zorn warrior who wooed her is killed, she finds herself property being handed over to her dead suitor’s brother. Having never met the man, she’s nervous and apprehensive. And with very good reason.
Argis Rever is reaping what he sowed. When he contracted with the beautiful human Tina, he kind of forgot to check if they were compatible anywhere other than bed. As time progressed, it became apparent they weren’t and the one area of their relationship that did work suffered as a result. Now bound for life, he has no choice but to endure. And living with the selfish, promiscuous Tina is definitely to be endured. As his father is leader of their planet, he agrees to harbor a refugee until her new intended can claim her. All it takes is one look and they are both drawn to the other in an undeniable way. And so the real story begins.
Look before you leap. There’s a reason that’s an old saying. But as unfortunate as the circumstances were that led to Brenda meeting Rever, they were necessary for them to find one another. This was a phenomenal story that had a true dilemma that had to be overcome before the couple could be together. Not a manufactured misunderstanding that a lack of communication fostered. With lots of angst and struggling with honor that governs all Zorn, Rever is a tortured man who makes some hard decisions to show what is truly important to him. While an abused woman in her previous life, Brenda refuses to be one now.
Rever was so miserable and Brenda was so scared. Their undeniable attraction led to some erotic interludes that were flaming in their intensity. This is the third story in the series. I loved the first, enjoyed the second, and again am blown away with this installment. With plenty of Argis running around, I hope for more stories in this series. They are a guilty pleasure that shouldn’t be missed.
Brenda spent four years trapped in an unhappy marriage. She’s so desperate to start a new life somewhere safe that she’s agreed to go to another planet with a handsome alien stranger. When he’s killed, she finds herself in the home of a Zorn warrior willing to protect her until the fallen warrior’s brother arrives to claim her.
Brenda never believed in love at first sight until she gazed into the gorgeous blue eyes of Argis Rever. He’s tall, dark, sexy…the kind of guy she’s always dreamed of finding—and already bound to another human woman. She could have lived with letting the man of her dreams slip through her fingers, except he isn’t happy—the horrid woman doesn’t even want him, and will never love him.
Brenda has lost a lot in her life but she’s not willing to lose the one chance at finding happiness with a man she’s falling in love with. She’s more than ready to start tempting Rever into finding his own happiness…with her.
