Battling pirates is easier than resisting their heat...
Gwen has always denied her attraction to Anders. Even after her marriage ends, getting involved with Anders is unthinkable. It's not only that he's a hot alien prince. He's her co-pilot and best friend. She can't risk losing him.
Anders has always been a rebel, but a near-death experience has made him question his priorities. Now that Gwen's single, he can't pretend they're just friends. He's always loved her, but if she doesn't admit she cares for him too, he'll get his heart broken.
When pirates seize their starship, taking the rest of the royal family hostage, it's up to Anders and Gwen to look for help. Can they stay alive long enough to defeat the pirates and save the passengers? And if they do, will Gwen finally stop fighting her feelings?

Loved Anders and Gwen! My favorite in the series so far! ANDERS is the third book (and the third brother) in Lisa Lace's newest series, Auxem, about the five Prince's from the planet who have come to earth in search of brides. It's also essentially the sixteenth book in her TerraMates series, since the bride's are found, with permission from Earth's government officials, through TerraMates. However, this book is a stand-alone, full-length science fiction romance with no cliffhangers. Unlike his two older brothers, Arnon and Ayries, Anders didn't choose a wide from among the women in Earth. Anders is a pilot with exceptional skill... and the swagger to go with it, and this is where his focus lies. He has no time for love. Especially when the woman he loved most died. He refuses to go through that pain again. Gwen was not part of the Brides program, but she is on board the Auxem's ship as a pilot, Anders' co-pilot and greatest temptation. They make a great team and have become close friends. When everyone on the Ayden ship is suddenly in danger it's up to Anders and Gwen to save them all. Their great teamwork will be tested and so will Anders hope to keep from falling in love with Gwen, and Gwen's hope to not fall for the handsome Prince she thinks would never want her. Both are burning with desire for the other, but the Auxem mate with only one woman and it's for life, are they ready for that commitment? Great story! Lots of danger, adventure, excitement and all set in brilliant futuristic, alien settings. There's also plenty of laughs, witty dialogue, and some creative sexy times for a couple who can't quite go all the way!! 4.5 stars ~The narration for Anders was excellent. The best so far in all of Lisa Lace's books I've listened to so far. There is good pacing in the reading, real emotion and good variances demonstrated in the different characters. It made a huge difference for me.
