It's also the best-kept secret from the clans' greatest enemy: Humans.
Vera is the sole female engineer in her department aboard the Zynthar International Space Station. Fighting against sexist prejudices is the only battle Vera has known until a band of rogue aliens attack the space station, taking her and a group of women hostage. It's a battle between life and death when Vera and the women are forced into servitude on an unknown planet full of shape-shifting alien wolves called Vilkas. Vera will do anything to escape, but the Vilka she works for is protective and loyal ... and far too attractive.
Rayner is Beta of Clan Vilka on Kladuu. It's a position he puts before all other aspects of his life, including love. But the more he gets to know his beautiful human servant, the more he recognizes the flaws in his clan's way of life. Amidst the stirrings of a servant uprising, another serious threat lurks in the shadows, waiting to destroy all Rayner holds dear-including Vera.
When Rayner's duties to his clan and his Alpha fall in direct opposition to protecting Vera-to protecting his mate-he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Even if the cost is betraying his people.
Even if the cost is his life.

This book is SO GOOD!!! Pearl is an incredibly talented author. Her writing just flows so beautifully; no choppy sentences, no romance novel cliches, no dull parts. I could not put this book down! The imagery in this book in unreal. I could totally imagine the scenes playing out exactly as Pearl had written them. Vera is an awesome heroine! Independent for sure, she also has a sassy streak about a mile wide. Her interactions with Rayner were quite interesting in the beginning! Rayner is a total alpha (even though he's the Beta. Ha!) I felt for him when he was torn between his duty to the clan and his duty to his heart. Sexytimes? Oh, yes! But these were truly love scenes, full of, well, love. Plus, I'm always a total sucker for the whole "true mates" or "fated mates" aspect, and that is absolutely a part of this book! The ending was SO PERFECT!!! The scene before the final scene was so emotional, and then the ending happened and I am now officially OBSESSED with this series! I CANNOT WAIT TO READ MORE OF PEARL'S BOOKS!!!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
