About this ebook


Leader of a human colony planet, Taryn Demara has much more on her plate than maintaining peace or ensuring her people have enough to eat. Due to a virus that affects male embryos in the womb, there is a shortage of men. For decades, her people have enticed ships to their planet and tricked the men into staying. However, a ship hasn’t been spotted in eight years. So when the blip finally shows on the radar, Taryn is determined to conquer the newcomers at any cost to ensure her people’s survival. 

Prince Kason tro el Vallen needs to find a suitable planet for his people to colonize. The Kelderans are running out of options despite the fact one is staring them in the face—Planet Jasvar. Because a group of Kelderan scientists disappeared there a decade ago never to return, his people dismiss the planet as cursed. But Kason doesn’t believe in curses and takes on the mission to explore the planet to prove it. As his ship approaches Jasvar, a distress signal chimes in and Kason takes a group down to the planet’s surface to explore. What he didn’t expect was for a band of females to try and capture him. 

As Taryn and Kason measure up and try to outsmart each other, they soon realize they’ve found their match. The only question is whether they ignore the spark between them and focus on their respective people’s survival or can they find a path where they both succeed?

       Oh My Goodness Ms. Jessie writes SciFi Romance now and they are so good, creating a vivid and detailed planet from her imagination. Whose characters are made just for each other. Believe me when you read it you'll see what I mean. Yes, this is definitely a MUST READ.      Taryn Demara is from the planet Jasvar. Which basically is a doomed planet being that all the women who conceive only have females, one out of every five womens birth a male embryos. They call it “Jasvar Doom Virus".

I loved this book! The world building was amazing and the idea of humans over populating the galaxy was accurate. I loved Taryn her need for social justice and equality was pretty cool without it being overbearing. I loved her strength and determination to help her people as best she could. Kason though typical patriarch mind set his character was enjoyable too. I admire his duty and his faults along with his ability to admit he had an equal match in Taryn. The only thing that really bothered me about the storyline was the idea of The Barren. When you read the book you'll know, it will piss you off though that's a given. But I LOVED the overall plot and looking forward to seeing more of this world thank you Jessie. Definitely a most read.

Doing your best to survive Taryn Demare is the leader of a human low tech colony planet. But a virus on the planet has been killing off males in the womb. The only reason they haven’t died off yet is they capture aliens that come to the planet to bring in new blood. But it’s been eight years since the last ship came. Something must change and a cure would be nice. The ECA or Earth Coalition hasn’t visited them in over a hundred years or more. The Kelderan planet needs to find another planet to colonize due to over population. The plant Jasver may be a possibility but due to the last expedition sent disappeared ten years ago, most believe a monster lives on the planet or that it’s cursed. Prince General Kason doesn’t believe either and agrees to go down with the first group to check it out. Just because the planet is low tech and mostly woman, doesn’t mean they can’t bring down a group of warrior men. This is an awesome first book of a new series. It’s a self-contained story yet will lead into more books. I highly recommend this well written and very entertaining story, that is action packed with some love along the way.
