Kai is from an alien warrior race that respects strength and battle experience. To keep his planet from fighting a war that is slowly decimating them, he agrees to marry a woman from earth as part of a peace treaty. Assured by his step father that he will never have to actually marry the woman, he is shocked when he finds a woman that he can't live without. Jenn is a human from Earth who signs up with TerraMates to keep a roof over her head after her "husband" runs off with everything she has. She never expects the visiting alien to pick her from all the eligible women, and she never thought she could be so attracted to the warrior alien. What an adventure! This was such an exciting story, between space battles, starships, alien races and a burning romance! Kai and Jenn were a great match, they brought out the absolute best in each other. Jenn is a compassionate and strong character that evolves in the story from naive to a fierce commanding woman. Kai is a battle tested warrior that evolves into a strong commander and leader for his people. This story is action packed and passion charged from the beginning till the end. This is part of a larger series but can easily be read as a standalone. There is a bonus book after this story as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves action, adventure, spaceship battles, warring aliens, spunky Earth women, or a great story. Received a copy for an honest review.
