Runner’s Moon: Yarrolam by Linda Mooney
When they landed on Earth after escaping the Arra slave ship, Yarrolam swore he’d never do manual labor again after years of brutal slavery. Along with a fellow Ruinos, he came to understand the monetary system used by this planet’s inhabitants, and became quite good at guessing the ups and downs of the stock market. So good, he was hired as an aide to Aaron Shulcrist, an investment broker.
What starts out as a favor to his boss to pick up Aaron’s fiancé at the airport becomes a race for survival as Yarrolam, now known as Liam, tries to keep Cherron Greene from being kidnapped by armed men determined to find Aaron, who has inexplicably disappeared. Worse, one deep breath of her unique scent tells Liam this woman is meant to be his life mate. But he cannot allow himself to claim her until she negates her relationship with his boss. And that may not happen if more of those men manage to get their hands on her.
The only place he knows where he can keep her safe is in a small town in Maine called Tumbril Harbor. There, he hopes he and his fellow Ruinos can face down any threat…be it from man or Arra.
