Alien Blood by Melisse Aires
Kellac ends up on planet Toph in military prison. While not at fault, Kellac must wait for diplomatic solutions while the military keeps him in lock up. Stranded on the planet as a child, Gema is in the Women’s Penitentiary for vagrancy. As a non-PureGen, she cannot be a citizen and is without legal status. Gema and Kellac are chosen to be contestants on the wildly popular Survival Game, and working together for survival and the prize of freedom quickly leads to more.
In the Survival Game, two prisoners compete to win credits and their freedom on a planet soon to be open for immigration. With every move recorded by a swarm of flying cameras, Kellac and Gema fight their attraction to each other and work together to earn credits.The competition goes well – until the spaceship carrying the show’s production team crashes onto their wilderness planet. They are stranded and survival is no longer a game.
