Nero by Mel Teshco
Can he protect her from his own enemy?
Nero Hart is one of only seven alien survivors, all of whom are Strazanian rares blessed with special powers. But nothing can save them from their power-hungry enemies, the Dronians, who wiped out the innocent Strazanian people. Nero and the six other rares are forced to flee their planet and survive on Earth, where they each become human and lay low. Nero becomes Jack, a nondescript male whose memories are wiped out for his own safety. But he can’t escape his past forever. Recollections start flooding back, compromising his very existence. The danger further snowballs when he rescues a gorgeous human woman from her violent ex. A woman he can’t seem to let go.
Brynn Monash was never a believer in fairytales, until her knight in shining armor appears and saves the day. Too bad her knight comes with scales and a fin, as well as bloodthirsty enemies determined to hunt him down. But Nero will do everything he must to keep them both alive and safe, even if he has to draw on every one of his unstable alien powers to do so.
Then Nero realizes Brynn isn’t some helpless damsel in distress and there is more to her than meets the eye. Were they always meant to be together?
