Publisher's Summary

She's on the run from a violent past. He solves his problems with a sword. 

Fleeing a life of abuse, Sheri climbs aboard a mail-order-mate spaceship bound for a distant station but never arrives.... Fate intervenes, and her trip takes a quick, deadly turn when she crashes on the planet Atera. She's surrounded by endless sand dunes, dangerous creatures, and alien beings that remind her of Earth lizards. But one particular lizard hardly leaves her thoughts - a sexy, two-legged, muscular male bent on protecting and caring for her at all costs. 

Drazan is a fierce warrior, the strongest Ateran of the Red Sands. He rules his dunes with an iron fist and sharp sword and is honor bound to face all challengers to his position. During one of these battles, something strange happens. Fire rains from the skies, and a strange, black metal box filled with females crashes to the sands. All thoughts of fighting are lost to the allure of these odd humans - especially one deliciously curvy female who stirs his blood. Now, he finds himself with dark yearnings, strong need, and a hardness between his legs that he's never used before.

Contains mature themes.

Repetitive

And consistent. Why was the heroine angst ing over whether she would ever see earth again when she was on a transport to another planet as a mail order bride? Why was she so reluctant to face her attraction to an alien when she was on a transport to another planet as a mail order bride? Why did she not get that SHE is the alien. Also the narrator was too breathy and broke the phrasing strangely. Like a second grader who couldn’t see that the sentence goes on after the end of the line when reading aloud. still a pretty nice story line and room for addition to the series.

Not worth a credit

The heroine was so annoying and I don’t like the narrative. The word “ my code” instead of “my mate” threw my off completely. Nevertheless, I managed to finished the book with great difficulty.

New wonders

Celia Kyle never disappoints out in the universe we can’t always expect humanoids in every planet. She blends these two cultures well. I can’t wait for the next book.

Love this author!

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys futuristic romance.
Celia Kyle does a great job with her characters and world building. I always look for her books and buy them as soon as they come out.
I like how the narrator brought the characters to life!
