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.

Pleasantly surprising

There are a lot of ideas in this book that clearly come from other sources, it’s easy enough to see the similarities between Epi and Spice from Dune. But despite, or maybe because of, this and the writers ability to develop characters I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to the next books.

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!
