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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Richards. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/018402/bk_adbl_018402_sample.mp3.
