My research ship crashed, stranding me on an alien planet with no hope of rescue.
When I’m captured by frightening, green aliens and given to Grael, a brooding, scythe-wielding Destran male with chameleon-like skin and the darkest eyes I’ve ever seen, I don’t know whether to cower before him or kiss him. I’ve spent my life puzzling out the human psyche, but can I get through Grael’s formidable walls?
I am Grael, lord of my living, symbiont ship and protector of the Destran population living in it. I have enough problems trying to free my ship from the rocky crevice its trapped in. I am not pleased when I’m presented with a “gift” of a frightened human female by the locals. I have no use for the small, alien female, but I can’t send her into the dangerous wilds where she’ll be killed. What am I to do with the beautiful woman with the dark blue eyes and a smile that lights up my dark world?
As enemies close in with plans to take over Grael’s ship and extract the powerful drug it produces, Grael and Lexi must find a way to hold them off and free the ship, but little do they know the devastating monster coiling beneath the seething mountain itself, threatening to devour everything in its path.
