Publisher's Summary

The people of planet Earth have suffered the tides of war for six long years, but it's not their war. Earth is the battleground for the thousand-year conflict between the invading Hahnshin and the Godan warriors of the Galactic Confederation.

Mira Donazetto's only concern is for her family's survival, so when she's offered work as a translator for the Godan, she jumps at the chance and right into the arms of the new First Commander, Roark. Her heart says she should trust this alien warrior, but how can she when he has the power to take away everything she holds dear.

Roark's new command post is a disaster with a long list of problems that he must address, including dissension among his officers. The last thing he needs is to have his heart touched by a woman who may be a traitor.

It's a whole new world and a whole new love story in a whole new series called Women of Earth.

    "Okay"

    This book is sci-fi, erotic romance love story.

    I thought the book was good, but may be better if I knew more about the characters, I think I will have to listen to the other books to understand it more. Sorry not my kind of book.

    Mira is human, once earth was invaded, she had to find another way of life. No more store or government, no one to rely on but yourself. She has a sister, a brother and a few orphans from off the street she must feed. The responsibility of being an adult in a world of chaos is not an easy task. but when she find comfort in the arms of the first commander, everyone's life is going to change.

    Roark is Godan, an alien as humans call him, but he knows that the humans are caught in a battle that is his own races fault. Although their technology is far more advanced than their human counterparts, he finds himself trying to take over the position of first commander, but the last Godan did not leave much room for him. When he finds himself caught in the web of a human woman, he now needs to find the spy among them as well and time is running out because the enemy is about to start a war on the Godans and humans.

    "the narrative is the best part"

    its alien romance ....I know but I was thinking hot buff alien guys with extra parts. the story is not well thought out and I was lost the entire time. sorry didn't like it. I give most of the credit to the narrator for keeping me until the 13th chapter but I couldn't finish.

    "I want Roark!"

    Jacqueline Rhoades has outdone herself again! I absolutely loved this story. This story was filled with suspense, love, action packed. This is a story you definitely should read or listen to. I found the audio great and I immersed myself into it from start to finish.

    The narrator did a great job. I think at times the voices could've been a bit better but overall it was a great story to listen to. I was pulled in and I listened from start to finish. I give it a 5 star rating!

    "Sucks you in so quick you don't want to stop!!!!!"

    This story kept me riveted until the end. Definitely some Twists and turns that I didn't expect. I'm HOOKED now I gotta find some more books from this author. As soon as it finished I was (damn!!! :( there's not another one in the series out). I loved the fact there wasn't any repeat concepts in this book from another author's series.

    Story
    "Roark"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Roark?

    Roark has a sense of humor and his I said it will be so it will be macho self. He is truly a hero iwith his sexy self and his alpha ways. He is strong but bends when needs to. No one has touched his heart the way this human has. I loved how protective his was how he gave so much and willing to give up so much for her. What could she be hiding and why is she pulling away from him.
