Dr. Lucy Stannis leads a quiet life as the chief biologist on the isolated planet of Eden until an alien spaceship arrives. Undaunted by the scaled bodies and sharp claws of the formidable Atrapako, Lucy befriends their leader, Sa Kamizan Veedak. But, her hopes for studying the aliens are frustrated when they refuse to cooperate and everything changes for the worse.
Sa Kamizan is desperate to find a haven for his exiled people. After the terrible voyage from their desolate homeland, he cannot permit the puny humans to scuttle his plans to colonize the fertile planet. After meeting the beautiful Dr Stannis, he must rethink his devious scheme. Her skills astound him at every new challenge, but he cannot claim her without revealing the Atrapako secret.
Conflicts between the unemotional aliens and the lively humans threaten the entire colony. Can Lucy and Sa Kamizan learn to work together to save his people and the human colonists or must they part forever?
If you like plucky heroines and mysteries where deceptions abound, then you’ll enjoy this science fiction adventure and sweet romance with a surprise twist at the end.
