Publisher's Summary

Not every alien is an enemy, even if he kidnaps you....

Calista is happy with her life of scientific research. She doesn't need love, she has her books, her friends, and her work. Things are fine until her ship is attacked by space pirates and crash lands on a desert planet with heat so intense she and her friends can't survive without help.

Ladon is a Zmaj warrior resigned to a life alone, who only desires to protect his treasures. His hopes for a mate faded long ago, yet when he meets Calista something stirs. It takes only one look to know that she belongs to him. He's been alone for so long, but she is the ultimate treasure and he will protect her. Now there's only the small problem of her living long enough to understand.

A devastated planet, a mysterious history, space pirates, and threats environmental and alien beset them on all sides. The sexy Zmaj warrior will have to battle the planet's ultimate threat in an epic effort to obtain the one thing he knows Calista needs to survive.

But will the other humans accept this huge and alien-looking dragon warrior? Or will they find him just as big a threat as the rest of the red planet? The future of both their races depends on it.

Contains mature themes.

Dragon instalove!

In this audiobook story, we have a generational shipload of humans who are traveling to a new home planet. They were all born on the ship and won’t reach the new planet in their lifetimes. Pirate aliens attack their ship and it crashes onto a hot, desert planet where it looks like it will be hard to survive. The heroine is a botanist and while she wanders off to see if she can find any native plants she collapses, only to be rescued by one of the male natives who has dragon like features. He sees her as his treasure and mate, not having any females left on their planet. There are a few mild sex scenes and lots of action, in which she has to convince the human survivors that he’s a good alien. There is a plant that grows only on the planet that can save the humans, but it has consequences so the remaining humans have to decide if it’s what they want. Narration was done well, but I wish there had been a male and female narrator. Looking forward to the next audiobook in this series!

What a gray sci-fi romance!

So you crash land on an unknowing planet. You are supposed to be in Flight to an unknown new destination since Earth has been rendered incapable of life. After crash landing, on a mission to discover viable plant life Calista meets the alien hunk who has been alone since his planet the one that she is on was devasted by the inhabitants. Ladin a warrior is a dragon and found his treasure. Hence he saves her several times, helps her to accept life and HEA starts....maybe. I would read more of this series.

A good tale

The main female lead was in a I must be detached and analytical mood long enough for me to get tired of it and be afraid the story would be ruined but it didn’t happen. I have already bought the next book and am looking forward to it

Ok if you like Alien Romances

Good concept, but with a lot of inconsistencies with primary characters. For all it’s frustrations, I’ve listened to this book several times before writing a review. I even bought the book. Ladon was completely likeable. Calista was likeable when she used her intelligence; but TSTL too many times. It’s as if the authors had two different heroines, two different characters in mind. I was beyond disgusted with how Calista let Gershon walk all over her, and her denial of her relationship with Ladon.
I liked the concept of the crash on the alien planet, even with the parallels to Dune. I liked the description of the Zmaj, even though this is the desert version of Dixon’s Ice Planet Barbarians.
I did like the male/female narrator combo in this production.

Has promise but also issues

thankfully this was Audible escape so it was almost free. I loved the premise of the story and it was exciting with a nice HEA. However.... I would love to take the word "yeah" away from the writer. I felt like I was listening to a bunch of junior high school kids trying to have a conversation. The world building wasn't great. You get some backstory but almost no feel for daily life. I think I got spoiled by Ruby Dixon's Ice Planet Barbarians and this just wasn't as good.

The female narrator was not to my liking. For emotion, she used either a raised voice or long pauses, felt overdramatic and unrealistic. I like it better when they have voice actors do narration as they truly emit the needed emotions while also making the separate voices really sound like different people. I will go to the second book as it's also included in Audible Escape. Maybe it will get better.

eh...

I actually finished the book so I can't give it one star--though I kind of wish I could. I wasn't impressed and bored more often than not. It's too bad, it seemed like a solid premise. I'm not going to bother finishing the series. Total waste.

Wonderful!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Loved Calista and Ladon!
Starts with a spaceship being attacked and crashing. Survivors are on an inhospitable planet. Calista searches for food for the survivors and passes out, only to be discovered by Ladon...and Ladon is a gem! Wonderful story—worth the time and credit!

Nailed it!

The narrator's nailed it! Loved it. Story line was great. Only thing I did not like is that they seemed to drag out all the attacks and I would have liked to hear more city time. Other than that it was a cute story with steamy sex scenes!!

so sexy

The outer space people or selfish and rude. taking over peoples homes and space. and just wrong. only issue i have with story instead of working with natives landon asking permission once understand . roslin pushed and

its amazing world . i just can't stand people taking advantage of other people .but this is crazy lets invite my people to your home without asking. but still so very good. and you need to be boss around your own home still. i think that the people that should be bad can die and the human should learn the natives language.
