War has a way of breaking everything... especially your heart and the rules of attraction.
Lieutenant Thea Haven is still heartbroken that her king, betrothed to her since their youth, chose a human as his lifemate and queen. As warrior-tough as she is beautiful, Thea is unsure whether any other man will ever awaken her again... until she encounters royal guardian Marco McKinley. With secrets as forbidden as his powerful sensuality, the king's brooding protector quickly takes command of Thea's darkest fantasies and casts a hypnotic spell over her body and heart.
Years ago Marco was pledged to protect Jared Bennett, his people's king, now living in exile on Earth. Here, in a world that's alien to them all, a secret war between human fighters and otherworldly rebels is growing hotter every day. But Marco lives in fear not of this epic war, but his own future destiny: He has been warned that he will turn traitor, and his love for Thea Haven will be the direct cause.
Now Marco is faced with the ultimate choice - break his vow to his king or lose the woman who has claimed his mind, body, and soul for her own. One of those choices could mean the destruction of them all.
Any additional comments?
For those of you who are new to the Parallel Series, you will have no trouble jumping into this addictive story... This book is the second in the series, but can also read like a stand alone book to a new reader... For me, I loved the way most characters from the first book are much included in this story...For those of you who are following the series, things are going to heat up... I find this series very additive, seductive, hot sex, action packed and a very captivating listen full of love and lust... <br/><br/>The books show how an alien race (the Refarians) are protecting earth from an evil alien race (the Antousians). The Antousians are out to destroy earth. The Refarians are attempting to activate the mitres, which is an ancient weapon hidden underground by Mirror Lake in Wyoming. This weapon can open portals in time and when activated, we see the parallel time streams running in parallel worlds. Thea and Marco are the key to keeping earth going. Since they are both empaths, they quickly understand the other timeline and realize how evil they were in that timeline. Thea and Marco are fighting their attraction for each other. Both are worried about the evil selves they have seen in the time streams. Can they overcome the feelings they have for each other and come together - or will they have to love each other from afar...<br/><br/>With Joel Richards magnificent voice changing skills this book came brilliantly to life... I find his voice Sexy but soothing and could listen to it all day.. This is Fantasy/Romance at it's very best and i have already grabbed books 3-4... Ya :)<br/><br/>
