Alien Legacy: The Empath by Keri Kruspe
An alien empath who long ago shut his emotions down. A lonely woman, unaware of her vital role in preventing an upcoming alien invasion. Thrown together by chance, can they overcome their mistrust to save us all?
Just his luck, alien-hybrid Ben is the only one for the job. Being an empath and a financial wizard, he alone can uncover an essential ally that’s key to thwarting a plot his alien ancestors, the Akurns, began at a small regional bank in Vegas. If successful, the aliens will have everything they need to crash the Earth’s economy, leaving mankind ripe for a destructive invasion.
Once in Vegas, Ben meets the intriguing Julienne. He’s alarmed at their instant attraction and struggles between the delectable woman or concentrating on finding the ally he came for. Too bad the fate of billions doesn’t leave room for anything personal.
Julienne suffers a stressful life. It’s a juggling act to keep 300 employees calm while merging three banks together. To top everything off, an arrogant, hotter-than-hell, aloof outside consultant has the nerve to butt in her business where he’s not needed or wanted.
After stumbling on an insidious global money laundering scheme at her small bank, Julienne is kidnapped by one of her hateful bosses. Unless she confesses who she’s working with, fretting about a demanding professional life is the least of her worries.
And what if she isn’t who or what she thinks she is?
Now it’s a race against time. Can a banker and an alien-hybrid overcome their mistrust and not only work together, but discover their love is the key to mankind’s salvation?
