Snow Cheetah by Vijaya Schartz
Captain Martial Terrien, nano-enhanced Space Marine from Earth, is on a secret, desperate mission to find his people a new home. Natalia, future queen of Kassouk, pressured into bonding with a power-hungry prince, yearns to improve her people’s lives. She finds the handsome Earth captain a refreshing distraction, despite his five fingers and ridiculous claim of being Human, like the lowly workers of her world.
The unexpected population on the chosen planet complicates Martial’s task, especially since the ruling caste can read minds, levitate, and teleport at will. Furthermore, the lovely princess and her pet cheetah take a shine to him, and beautiful women always spelled disaster in his past. But Natalia’s jilted suitor, determined to reign at any cost, vows to annihilate the Earthlings. When the conflict escalates, can Martial obey Earth Central Command, or will he jeopardize the future of his race to save Natalia and her people?
