Find the strongest man there. Give yourself to him in return for protection. It's the only way you'll ever survive.

Convicted of a minor crime, Riana is sentenced to a prison planet—a dark primitive hold filled with convicts vying for power. Her only chance of survival is with Cain, a mysterious loner who has won his territory in the prison through intelligence and brute strength. Sex is all she has to offer, so she uses it. She's under no delusions here. No one is ever released, and no one ever escapes. Survival is all she can hope for—until Cain.

An earlier version of this book was published under the same title and a different penname. It has since been substantially revised and expanded.

Much better read then I thought it would've been. Well thought out and pretty good storyline without being drawn out and overly dramatic.

Let's see....hmm...how many times have I read this? 1,2...10. Yup, that's about right. It's a fast-paced story. Very unique. As the story develops so does the feelings between Cain and Riana. I'd love to see more of there relationship develope.

Hot!!! Hot!!! Hot!!! Claire Kent is automatic buy for me. Her books never disappoint normally i m not into futuristic topics but for her always i m making exceptions and reap the rewards. The topics are always unique, real and fully developed and with no repetitive topics, that rarely can be found even in best selling authors. All her books are my favorite love my Claire Kent/ Noelle Adams library and cant wait for new releases. If you like new and unique approach when reading a book this is for you and you ll not be disappointed i promise :::)))))

This book was fabulous. I only wish Claire had expanded it to a full-length novel. At the end, she states that she's writing a sequel about one of the supporting characters and I'm looking forward to that. Claire Kent is an auto-buy for me. Her writing is amazing and her character development is like no other author. I have all of her books and she just can't write fast enough for me.

This erotic sci-fi thriller is the story of Riana, thrown into the planetary prison Hold and told by a well meaning but unsympathetic guard to find the strongest man there to protect her - and she does, finding Cain and giving herself to him in hopes that he'll help her survive. I really enjoyed this unique story. There isn't a lot of character buildup to start but the setting is well described, bleak and cold in its description of the base level of humans left to survive on their own in this prison. Riana is a strong female character latching on to Cain when he offers her the chance to be with him. It's a do or die situation for her and she does the only thing she can, expecting the sex with him to be horrible but finding that once their initial encounter is out of the way, she is actually attracted to him. The sex scenes are definitely hot and steamy, and though Cain is not a big talker, we get the impression that he is an upright guy, protective of Riana once she is in his sphere of control. It's a unique romance, but they find something to believe in with each other, and this makes the story riveting to read as they try to find a way out of the hellhole they are in. The ending is sweetly satisfying. Loved it! 5 stars for a thoroughly entertaining read.

Really enjoyed this book. It is not the author's typical genre, but I decided to buy it since I have loved other books by this author. Really hope she will continue this series. This is a standalone book with a HEA.
