When an alien hijacks her ship, the chief engineer’s decision may cost her a broken heart and her people everything.
Chief Engineer Hart Engle’s only goal in life is to keep the one hundred and fifty-year-old Earth starship moving toward their final destination. When an alien boards the vessel, he offers hope, but can she trust him?
Karnin risks everything important to him to help the Earthlings. He doesn’t understand his people’s interest in these aliens from a distant planet called Earth. Then he meets Hart and decides they are worth saving.
Hart falls for the handsome, grim-faced alien as they work together to repair the faltering starship. All the while, a greater danger closes in on them. Karnin’s own people threaten the survival of Hart’s.
When the Earthling leaders hesitate to trust Karnin’s warning, he takes matters into his own hands. Feeling betrayed and used by Karnin, Hart picks up the pieces of her broken heart and helps her leaders overcome his alien technology and physical superiority.
If their mutual trust isn’t restored and their relationship healed, not only will Hart’s people perish, but Karnin’s entire race will face extinction.

The story line was good. I hope to see more of the colony characters in future books. This book also kept me on the edge of my seat I wasn't sure how it was going to end....it does have a happy ending. Altho I wish the ending was a bit longer with more descriptive interaction between the colonist. I'm also hoping that this author will continue this series (with maybe some traveler children being hidden on their home world and they have to be rescued by our gallant heros and earth women). You won't be disappointed by buying this book if your on a book budget its 211 nook pgs, it has drama ,adventure, love,and sacrifice and techno. Everything a scifi woman wants in her book.......vw
