Ruled by Arcadia Shield
A mission that can’t fail. A wounded alien warrior with a dark past. A woman determined to protect her heart.
Wren Tulloch needs a win. If this mission to capture a rare sapo explosivo fails, she’s out. She has to prove she’s good enough. If she doesn’t, she knows the cost of failure.
But Wren has a problem. All six foot six inches of smoldering, purple-eyed, Apexian. Her work partner is a rule breaker. A good time alien, with abs to die for and an attitude that makes her blood boil. If only he wasn’t so toe-curlingly gorgeous. But she won’t fall for him. If she does, he’ll mess her around, and her fragile heart will shatter.
Striker Bandidar lives in the moment. Screw tomorrow. He could be dead by then. And rules are for morons. But there’s one adorable Human rule keeper who’s making him have second thoughts. He won’t go there. He’s faced soul shattering loss and betrayal from people he trusted. Have fun, live for today, and everything will be fine.
But when his gorgeous, frustratingly sexy partner is taken, Striker learns some rules have to be obeyed if you’re to find meaning, joy, and a happily ever after in the stars. Will he overcome his fears and lose his heart to Wren? And if he does, will she let him in?
This standalone action-romance novel has a crew of feisty, smart women; hot, gorgeous Apexian alien warriors; action-packed battles; funny, quirky alien critters, and steamy scenes set in space.
