Overview

Science Fiction Romance from RITA nominated author!

The Controllers have engineered a virus that is killing Shielders. In the hopes of finding a cure, the Shielders need a human host to get the deadly virus past Controller checkpoints and to a medical lab on the planet Santerra. With her people facing extinction, outcast Nessa dan Ranul volunteers to be the host and is injected with the virus. She has only four weeks to make it to Santerra before it kills her.

When her ship breaks down in deep space, she's rescued by her most dangerous enemy--a shadower, a bounty hunter who tracks down Shielders. She can't tell him the truth about her dilemma, or he will turn her in to the Controllers.

Shadower Chase McKnight has an agenda more pressing than claiming bounty rewards--vengeance. He doesn't have time for a homeless waif who ignites emotions he buried long ago. He refuses to allow anything to deter him from his mission, which results in traveling away from Santerra--while the time bomb inside Nessa is ticking down. But she doesn't dare trust this man who is an enemy of Shielders.

Their secrets and agendas don't prevent the growing attraction between Chase and Nessa, even as they fight their individual demons--even as time runs out for Nessa. Only love can bring them full circle, offering Chase redemption, and the chance to save Nessa--and ultimately, her people.

Very involving space romance. Full of adventure, clashes of emotion between nessa & chase. Nessa is held in contempt by her own people, including her parents since she has been crippled & has unexplainable seizures since a young child. To prove her worthiness she volunteers to carry the virus that threatens her people which must be vaccinated inside her body & must travel to a distant laboratory on another planet. Her ship is disabled & chase is forced to rescue her. He's rude, angry, scary, & intimidating. Nessa may not think much of herself, but she bravely stands up to her scary rescuer. Mind blowingly different than the usual romance story, as some of the sizzinling sex scenes does not have the usual outcome for the innocent nessa. Chase is a fascinatingly different type of hero, character wise. Of course he is hotter than hot in face & body. He is driven by revenge, forcing himself for years to guard his emotions, but there is a surprising hidden side to him that unravels as nessa & chase are intensely drawn to each other, sexually & emotionally.
