Determined to save his people from a debilitating mutation, Mal Ton abducts a gifted geneticist and brings her to his war-torn world. Andrea wakes up naked and in the arms of a handsome doctor who claims to be Mal Ton's captive as well. Roark charms and seduces her while Mal Ton overwhelms her senses, awakening needs she didn't realize she possessed.
Roark's smoldering intensity is even more intoxicating than Mal Ton's blatant sexuality. Slipping beneath her emotional defenses, Roark unleashes her passionate nature and makes her long for the soul-deep connection she gave up on long ago. She wants to believe they've found a bond more meaningful than lust, but how can she trust her captors? Now her sensuality is pitted against her intellect and the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance.

Military factions were half a step behind. Bidding wars and thinly veiled
threats were now an everyday obstacle. Little wonder she?d become reclusive.

quick commands. Andrea?s display went blank. ?I?m here to hold down the
fort. Go! Have a good time.?
to object when the door slid open and a dark-haired man stepped into the
lab. Tall and broad shouldered, his stiff posture and sharp-eyed stare
identified him as military even without the uniform. His hair had been
sectioned off and formed into thin dreadlocks that reached the middle of
his back. The thick mass was secured at the nape of his neck, accenting the
ruthless angles of his features. He appeared humanoid, yet not quite human.
His skin tone was a bit too golden, the tilt of his eyes too pronounced.

allowed. ?How did you get down here??

accent, adding to his exotic appeal. ?I?m your escort for the evening.? His
shoulders remained squared, arms at his sides as his teal gaze boldly
assessed her figure.

for the attention. Her breasts curved well into view and one side of the
gown was slit to mid-thigh. The dark brown material shimmered with green
and gold iridescence, perfectly matching the multi-colored hazel of her

acknowledged the statement with a stiff nod and turned to Janelle. ?Com me
if there are any unusual developments.?
corners of Janelle?s mouth quirked suspiciously as she looked from Andrea
to Mal Ton and back. ?Gottcha covered.? She
dropped her voice to barely a whisper and added, ?Remember my suggestion
about the coat closet? That one is perfect for the job.? She turned back to
her desk before Andrea could react to the comment.

and awareness arced between them like sizzling currents of electricity.
This could prove interesting. Director Sanchez had streamed Mal Ton?s
dossier to her workstation when he?d first insisted on private security for
the evening, but the profile hadn?t included an image. Now she had a devastating
face to put with his impressive credentials.

alleviate her final paranoia. ?Would you mind??

confirmed his identity.

language established for the facilitation of interplanetary trade. He was
making a valiant effort to speak Earthish, but
she preferred to avoid miscommunication.

they left the lab, her high heels providing a rhythmic accompaniment for
their conversation. The extra three inches only brought her head even with
his shoulder. Damn the man was tall.
I keep forgetting I?m retired.?
glanced up at him, her brow furrowed. He was a man in his prime. How could
he be retired? ?How long have you been on Earth??

of and to my knowledge no human has ever visited. I could say the name, but
it doesn?t translate well into Standard.?
sorry. I didn?t mean to be rude.? She scanned open the lift and stepped
inside. ?Scientists are curious by nature.?
only reply was an enigmatic smile.
