Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. She will be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.
The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.
Inside Scoop: This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.
A Romantica® sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

If it weren’t for the tone in Jess’ voice, Saia wouldn’t have been pulled from watching the human male across the room.
Jess placed a hand across her eyes and shook her head slowly.
Jess groaned. “Please, please look at something else.”
Saia let her gaze go back to the male. His black hair was cut short. His blue eyes were framed with an abundance of dark lashes. Light seemed to dance in his eyes as he smiled in her direction.
Is he smiling at me?
She took a quick peek left then right
He’s smiling at me!
Her heart leapt for joy. His graceful smile was only for her. She giggled and placed a hand over her mouth.
“He won’t be satisfied until he’s dead,” Jess muttered.
She turned to Jess. “What are you talking about?”
Jess watched the male across the room as well. But instead of smiling, she made a slow motion across her neck with a finger. “I’m referring to the slow death he’s sure to get if he keeps flirting with you.”
She turned back to the male. No one had ever flirted with her. She smiled again.
“Good gracious, don’t encourage him!”
“Do you know him?”
“Unfortunately, yes.” Jess rolled her eyes. “Maybe I should start saying that I knew him.”
The lights turned low, signaling the beginning of the dinner entertainment. The voices in the dining hall became hushed. Saia strained her eyes to make out the silhouette of the human.
Slow, rhythmic drums began to beat. Light shone from the stage door. One torch, then two, then three, until finally there were six. In the darkness, the torches zipped through the air, swung in circles, tossed and caught.
Every now and again, she could catch a glimpse of him and found that he still watched her as well.
Her heart seemed to thump in time with the drums. His smile had dropped but his stare was intent just the same. His gaze seemed to bore through her. Right to her soul. And she found she enjoyed it.
She leaned over to whisper, “Tell me his name.”
Jess shook her head. “Ignore him like I do most days and watch the show.”
Ignore him? She couldn’t. “But I want to know his name.”
Jess looked at her. “Listen, Princess Saia, this can’t happen.”
“What can’t happen?”
“You and JB. Taio would never allow it. You’re getting married and JB’s going back to Laconia. I’m trying to keep him alive at least until then.”
Jaybee. She turned to look at him again.
Jaybee. What a wonderful name.
“Argh, can you at least get that dreamy look off your face?”
“Is he a slave?”
“Is he bonded?”
“Can you introduce me to him?”
Jess raised a brow. “Have you seen the size of your brother?”
Jess was right. Taio was extremely protective of her. That was the very reason why she could never tell him their father had long been striking her and her mother. And she couldn’t forget that she was contracted to bond with Ranuit Pi.
And just like that, an overwhelming sense of dread had ahold of her once again.
There could be no flirting. No smiles from across the room as she’d heard described on many occasions from people who had fallen in love. Her fate belonged to someone else.
