After decades of war, destruction, and famine, the people of Earth have settled into a fragile peace when the Delroi arrive. Driven by the visions of his people's seers, General Alrik Torfa is determined to take Earth and its promised riches—women capable of bonding with his people. He doesn't expect her to come easily but is more than a little surprised to find her leading the enemy army. Outmanned and outgunned, there is no way the Earth forces can win.
Sergeant Major Laney Bradford was looking forward to a quiet retirement when the Delroi arrived with their armies. Earth doesn't stand a chance against the Delroi's advanced weapons and technology, but it's one of Earth's own weapons—a planet destroying bomb fallen into Delroi hands—that forces their surrender.
The terms of that surrender are outrageous, however. Marriage to their leader, Alrik Torfa. Laney has no intention of accepting his proposal or the pressure from her government to give in. But she's fought for peace her entire life and when surrender talks are threatened by a conspiracy lead by her people, Laney must choose. Will she submit to the alien invader or lead the fight against him?
