When Barimere, a tall, sexy hunk of alien male, meets her at the shuttle station on his world, Jacie feels the stirrings of desire -- even though that's what got her into this mess in the first place. But there's something about Barimere that's different, and she doesn't mean the scars on his face.
Barimere agrees to guard Jacie from unwanted attention and possible abduction. But one look at her and her demented fur ball pet, and he wonders if he's insane to accept the mission. He knows a woman like her would never look twice at a scarred male like him, but that doesn't stop his body from instantly reacting to her beauty and charm.
A pregnancy that is more than what it seems, and a woman determined to find love on an alien world is more adventure than the taciturn warrior has bargained for. Barimere is all for Jacie finding a mate and getting herself out from under his nose. Except for some odd reason he'd like to tear apart any male who looks her way, and beat the living hell out of anyone who tries to hurt her.
An alien warrior intent on fighting his attraction. A human female determined to bring him to his knees. What could possibly go wrong?
