He never expected to find his soulmate.
Bound by a sacred oath, Lar has selflessly dedicated his life to place the needs of his crown prince above all others, including his own. Taking the oath was easy in his youth—with the population imbalance facing his people, there was no hope of Lar finding a soulmate. He never expected to be tempted to break his oath. But then he journeyed to Earth.
Sophie Myers doesn’t have time to heal from the trauma of alien abduction. Nor can she allow herself to be distracted by Lar, one of the giant blue warriors who rescued her. She has no time for romance now that a shapeshifting alien mercenary threatens her family. But when she discovers she wasn’t the only one taken, her only hope is to place her trust in Lar.
Their search for answers only turns up more questions—and uncovers a threat bigger than either could ever imagine. Will the temptation of their growing bond lead them to a new life together, or will it ultimately send them to their death?

He could see down the wide corridors that led deeper into the base. Queen Ehmach had most likely sent shards down each one, destroying everything and everyone they encountered.
Sophie let out a sound of anguish—a half-moan, half-sob. Her despair was sharper than the pains in his hearts, more immediate and laced with fear. Whatever she had been hoping to find when they arrived, this was not it.
