“Now that I have found her, I refuse to lose her…”
One by one, I’ve seen my friends fall in love with the alien warriors on this planet. I’m so happy for them, but I can’t help but feel jealous. More than any other single girl on this planet, I want what they have—a mate. After a childhood in foster care and an adulthood littered with crappy boyfriends, I just want to find my place, my home, love. I want it more than anything, and I’m ready for it.
What I’m not ready for? An enemy Gahn from beyond the mountains attacking our settlement in the dead of night. And even more than that? This bleeding Gahn with piercing silver eyes and brutal blades claims that I’m his mate.
Baldor seeks to claim me. I’ve waited for this moment. Craved it. But now that it’s here, I’m not so sure I’m ready anymore. Baldor is hardened, fierce, and stubborn. Beneath his tough exterior, a dark pain looms inside him. Even as my feelings for this enemy Gahn grow, I’m not sure that I’m strong enough to let in the light.
I never thought I’d be granted a second mate after losing my first. I do not even know if I deserve another chance at happiness. Deserving or not, I will find her. I will fight for her. And I will claim her.
My attack against the other tribes to claim my mate does not go as planned. The other Gahns have new allies and are stronger than ever before. Having my blades forced down is bad enough. What’s even worse is the fact that my mate, the lovely, sun-haired Theresa, does not seem to want me.
She is the light in a world gone dark. A future I’d never hoped to earn. I will not lose her. To win her love, I will have to go further than I’ve ever gone before. And I’ll have to sacrifice more than I’d ever thought possible.
