A Nion warrior never kills. Never. But this time, she may have to destroy the man she loves.
They found him chained in the depths of an enemy ship. Half-starved, beaten, and abused in more ways than anyone could ever imagine, the man still exhibited a strength of character that impressed his deliverers, including Captain Willis Tate.
Something about this one, whom his captors called Vall, tugged at her heart. It was too bad she wouldn't have the chance to explore the exciting new feelings he brought to her when she was around him. Her orders were to deliver him to the nearest Regency base, where it would be determined what species he belonged to, and then be indoctrinated into his new life of freedom. He would be returned home, and Will would go back to her ship.
At least, that was the plan, until a ship of unknown origin suddenly appears from out of nowhere and demands Vall in exchange for her life and the lives of millions more. It isn't until she finally discovers Vall's true identity that Will realizes how special he is to keeping balance in the Universe. And how special she has become to him.

I wish it was longer but then it probably wouldn't be as good as it is. A perfect blend for sci-fi and romance! Did I mention that I love this book?
"Good Space opera with a story that was different."
This is the second book I've read by this author. I really liked both stories and found that book and this one quite different. It wasn't like your typical alien needs human women stories. In that I found the story different and refreshing. I didn't give it a solid 5 because I would have liked to see more development and growth in Vall and a deeper connection between Vall and Will besides the fact that he needs her. You'll learn why as you read the story.
Audrey does a good job of narrating and using different tones and voices. Overall I didn't quite enjoy is as much as the other book, but it was an interesting read. I have added this author to my list of buys. I like how unusual her stories are.
