When Alethia is kidnapped while trying to free slaves, it seems her deepest nightmares are coming true. Her ‘rescue’ by Thanesh, leader of the Protectorate, a group of hardened mercenaries, is short-lived when the past catches up to the mysterious alien leader, revealing things about both of them which will change their future forever.

The Mercenary’s Dawn is a full-length steamy SFR featuring a tenacious heroine and a possessive, but loving alpha. It also features a strong sci-fi universe, a thrilling adventure and a slow burn, enemies to lovers, story ending in a guaranteed HEA. This book is part of a larger arc and is best enjoyed as part of the series, however, it is also a complete story that can be read as a standalone.
TRIGGER WARNING: There is a brief assault attempt at one point of the book which is not gratuitous in any way, and the heroine lives in a world where human females are considered a sexual commodity. Please do not read this book if this is a trigger for you.
