In the distant future, Earth is ravaged by war and famine, and after generations of bloodshed settles into peace only to be invaded by the alien Delroi. General Alrik Torfa needs a mate and his seers promise mates for many of his people on the distant planet Earth. He doesn’t expect her to come easily, but is more than a little surprised to find her leading an enemy army. Outmanned and outgunned, there is no way the Earth forces can win.
Sergeant Major Laney Bradford has always played her part and served her people well, but the Delroi’s surrender demands are a bit extreme. Marriage to one of them? Not likely. But she’s fought for peace her entire life and when surrender talks are threatened by a conspiracy lead by her people, Laney must choose. Will she submit to the alien invader or lead the fight against him?
Col. Kendall Marks is both soldier and physician. Her journey to Delroi has two purposes-deliver her best friend’s baby and indulge her scientific fascination with the alien race. The last thing she expects upon her arrival is to get caught up in political intrigue or develop an unreasonable attraction to the Delroi Warrior Overchief.
Daggar Torfa has finally the found the one. The woman that completes him, the other half of his soul. But in the midst of conspiracies to kill him, one that comes close to home and almost succeeds, can he protect her? Only if he can curb her headstrong ways. It turns out the fight of his life may be to claim his mate, not fighting his enemies.
Britt Anderson is retired. Secretive and fiercely independent, she journeys to Delroi to spend time with her two oldest friends. She doesn’t expect to be dragged back into the spy business when she gets there, but the lure is impossible to fight for a not so reformed adrenalin junkie. Danger. Conspiracy. What’s not to love?
But there’s always a price and it presents itself as the darkly dangerous Barak Trace. She can’t deny the attraction, but has enough sense to steer clear of the possessive glint in his gaze. Until he somehow manages to merge his psychic abilities with hers. When he’s captured by rebel forces, she has no choice but to go after him. The question is will she be able to free herself once he’s rescued? And will she even want to?
Janice Hawkins is a woman on a mission, and it doesn’t include getting wrapped up—or naked—with Delroi warrior Falkor Trace. No matter how appealing and sexy he is. After a couple of weeks on Delroi, she returns to Earth determined to infiltrate the shadowy Tel Group. The secretive organization of telepaths trained her, used her for dishonorable means, and may have been behind the deaths of her parents. When word reaches her the organization is once again recruiting minors, she knows the time has come to act. She may not be left standing at the end, but she’s taking them with her.
Falkor follows her to Earth. He discovers she is a mix of lies and secrets. Unraveling them exposes a woman of courage and honor. A woman who has always walked alone. She may not be willing to admit she needs help, but he’s not about to leave her to such a dangerous undertaking on her own. But to do so they must learn to trust each other and time is running out.
