Cornering Carmen by S. E. Smith
Carmen Walker has spent the last three years of her life focusing on avenging the murder of her husband, and she’s closing in on his killer. To meet with her informant, she catches a ride on the business jet her sister is co-piloting to California, but plans change when one of the women is kidnapped when they land, and Carmen is mortally wounded. She wakes on board an alien warship heading to a distant world.
Creon Reykill is credited with ending the wars between the Valdier, Curizan, and Sarafin worlds, and building a strong alliance with their former enemies. But that victory came at a cost. Creon has given up hope of ever finding his true mate, believing his soul is too dark to ever be gifted with one.
That all changes when a female unlike anything he has ever seen before is brought to his world. The moment he sees her, he knows she belongs to him. His dragon will do anything to claim her, his symbiot will do anything to protect her, and he would do anything to chase the shadows from her eyes, for just her presence has brought light to his darkness.
Can a dragon-shifting warrior with his own demons help heal the broken heart of a human woman who wants to give up everything—including her life—for revenge?
