Josie Conner always dreamed of going into space, so a job as a technician on a Mars colony was the chance of a lifetime. She looked forward to walking a fresh world, to solving its mysteries — but she never expected to wake up an alien, asleep underneath the planet’s surface. And she certainly didn’t expect the alien to be so…incredibly hot. Verikan is tall, intimidating, dangerous, and the way his violet eyes look at her makes her heart pound. Josie soon discovers that this bossy, demanding alien doesn’t intend to let her go…and as much as she tries to fight it, she can’t ignore the white hot desire his touch ignites in her.
