I can run from danger, but I can’t run from him.
When my father tries to marry me off to a man I don’t love, I buy a one-way ticket to Mars. But before I can even get out of orbit, a brutal alien warrior attacks. He says he wants our ship, but from one look in his eyes, I know he wants much more from me.
I’m left with a choice: try to hitchhike to Mars–alone and penniless–through the empty cold of space, or accept this infuriating alien’s protection. And take him home with me.
I’d always wanted a man to stand up to my father, I just never thought it would be him. He’s frustrating, mysterious, and fiercely protective. All of humanity is one big game of chess to him…am I his pawn? Or his queen?
He’ll protect me from everything in the world, but nothing in the universe can protect me from him.
