Product description

Product Description

Internationally acclaimed, New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author of Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance brings another action, adventure, and suspense-filled story to transport readers out of this world.
Merrick Ta’Duran is the powerful leader of the Eastern Mountain Clan on the Prime world of Baade. His people, known as the Ghosts of the Forests, live high in the Eastern mountains. Merrick feels the weight of responsibility as the males within his clan become desperate to find mates among the few remaining females. When word comes that a new species has been discovered, he knows he must do what is right for his people - even if it means traveling to a strange, alien realm to do it.
Merrick’s world changes when he is injured and captured by a ruthless group of humans. Drugged and held against his will, he is the subject of experiments and testing as the humans try to discover where he came from and duplicate his strength and ability to heal quickly. After months of captivity, he fears his life will end on the strange world until one chance encounter gives him hope.
Addie Banks’ world has been one of silence since a devastating illness when she was sixteen. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she goes to school during the day and works at night to put herself through college. Her life unexpectedly changes when she stumbles across something she wasn’t supposed to see while at work. Now, she hears a voice in her head - and it is driving her crazy. Her only hope for peace is to help the creature talking to her escape from the men holding him.
Merrick knows the female who helps him is his bond mate. She may deny it. She may fight it. She may even try to run from it. It won’t matter. She is his and he will do everything he can to convince her, hold her, even kidnap her if that is what it takes to make her realized that they belong together.
Will Addie hear the love and longing in Merrick’s voice? Can she trust and accept the new life he has to offer? Or, will a ruthless killer silence him before she gets a chance?

At the end of Cosmos Promise Merrick had been captured and was missing. A leak in the government was giving the baddies a heads up so they kept moving Merrick to other labs whenever rescue was close at hand.
Months later we find Merrick caged in yet another cell somewhere.
Wow, finding out what happened to Merrick was scary. Abused and used for testing purposes by some really rotten human ratbags. Unfortunately people likes these exist in real life.
Addie was the cleaner at one of the places where Merrick was being held. Addie was cleaning in a restricted area and stumbled across Merrick in a cage. By touching each other the bond mate rings form on their palms.
Addie has been deaf since her teenage years and hearing a voice in her head was a bit startling for her but she came through a real trooper and tried to help Merrick escape. Unfortunately, the baddies knew what she was doing. Addie is then kidnapped and used to make Merrick behave but she was able to summon help from Cosmos group.
In all the confusion of the rescue Addie is dumped in a human hospital and forgotten about as no one knew they were mates. The silence she felt as Merrick was no longer with her must have been heart-breaking.
Merrrick was unconscious during the rescue and was dying due to the drugs that had been pumped into him. He was taken back to Baade to be healed though he still nearly died even with their advanced technology.
A lot more happens to make this one of the most action packed books in this series.
I found it funny that Addie fell asleep in stressful situations. Cute but silly.
Markham needs to be found and put down.
If Avery is Cores bond mate, then he must be going crazy as she keeps disappearing on him.
Cannot wait for the next book in this combined world series. Don’t care whose it is as I love them all.

Another great read delivered by the lovely S.E Smith.

If you have yet to pick up and book by S.E Smith, I greatly recommend that you do. Light reads, but gripping and funny, they will be great additions to any book collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read 13 June 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on

This story picked up just where it should have in the story line. Merrick has almost reached his limit. The testing, constantly being drugged, being shocked, moved from one place to another, is draining him. Then he meets Addie by accident. His mate. Addie lost her hearing while still in high school but has worked hard to get on with her life and trying to get a degree. You have a crazy doctor wanting to experiment on Merrick and a cold hearted killer wanting to hunt him like prey and then keep is body as a trophy. It's a great story in the series. Really hope the next book will be out soon. To many warriors still need mates
5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a tv series. 13 June 2017

I love this who series and can't wait for the next one; of course, who wouldn't like hunky warriors and the strong, funny women they fall for. I would watch a television show based on these books. The characters are loveable and real life atrocities are dealt with while humor abounds as well as romantic relationships. I'm looking forward to Core & Avery's story as well as Derik & Runt. I can't wait to see which warrior gets Trudy and Rose or if Crawford's pregnant girlfriend was saved and might find another mate. I'm wondering about Addie's sisters, at least, the one who had a terrible boyfriend previously. This writer will be very busy explaining what happened to Rico, Maria, and Garrett as well as letting everyone know if Hendrik will find his snow bunny bond mate. Lol

I love reading about the different worlds and meeting the aliens that reside there. This author has a way she transport you into the books she writes so you feel you know these characters as your family and friends. I am always excited when she writes another episode in one of her series, or when she writes a new book. The adventure is always worth the time I spend reading them. I can't decide which books are my favorites so I guess I'll just claim them all. This is one author I own everything she writes , its all so enjoyable. You will find this out , once you try her books. Do it today!

What I like best about this series is (other than the hot aliens) is when they are on the ship or on the planet Baade. Almost this entire book was on Earth. It was interesting to have Addie be deaf from an illness when she was a teenager. When she could suddenly hear Merrick's voice in her head, after she realized she wasn't going crazy, it was pretty touching. I just really hope the next book is more on Baade. Core and Avery should be pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars He broke through the silence to be with her 26 June 2015
By annette colon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
On Merrick's world the female population are far and few in between. Their only hope is to find females from other worlds that are compatible to them. Their search has lead them to earth.
Addie has lived in a world of silence most of her life. She loves her family dearly, but she needs her space. Their over protective behavior is stifling. Things change for Addie at her job when she comes across a man in a cage.
Sparks happen and the mating Mark appears on Merrick and Addie's hands. Merrick is determined save his lifemate and bring her back to his world where she belongs. Addie just has to convince him she's death not weak and she belongs by his side and not on the sidelines.
