 I’m a scavenger. So what? With society’s collapse on Earth, I do what I have to for survival. Especially after I’m kidnapped by space pirates. I have no idea why the five most powerful rulers in the universe decide that I’m the Oath Forger, the one foretold to fuse their royal houses together and bring peace. But I’m going to play along. Because, hey, it’s better than probes in uncomfortable places. Now let’s just hope they don’t find out I’m lying.

Excerpt:

My attention is glued to the man who sits straight ahead, on a platform of his own, above all others.

He’s larger than the largest man I had ever seen on Earth. His shoulders are twice as wide as mine. He is wearing a body-hugging suit, a dark blue space material that absorbs light. His muscle definition is...

Clearly visible, even from as far away as where I’m standing.

Hair the color of indigo spills down to the middle of his back, the kind of hair they used to call a lion’s mane on Earth. Straight nose, a jaw that looks like it had been cut from granite. But it’s the eyes that render me unable to breathe. His eye color matches his hair, and his gaze is locked on mine. And—here is the weird part—I can feel him in the room. I could almost swear I can hear his heartbeat. My awareness of him is...unearthly.

Oh God, I’m cracking. The stress of the abduction has done me in. Next, I will be crying in a heap on the floor like Dee.

Krek Koah stands, a fierce expression on his face.

The buzz in the room immediately dies. Every single person falls silent. All attention is on him.

Without moving his gaze from mine, he says, “I need this room cleared.”

Here is where I’m seriously glad for the translator in my neck—even with the killer headache I feel coming—because if I didn’t understand what he said, I would think it was ‘Off with their heads.’

And I’m pretty sure I would pee my pants.

People file for the exits, no questions, no protest.

I’m ready to go. I’m backing away already.

“Not you,” Krek Koah pronounces, looking straight at me.

Cassie Anderson has been an orphan since the age of four. Left on her own, she grew up a hard-working, pragmatic woman of the Montana Territory, her steady employment at the Selby boarding house the only life she knows. When strange, sensual dreams drive her from her bed at night, her body heavy with desire and the scar on her palm burning, Cassie isn't sure what to think. When the handsome stranger tempting her each night with stolen kisses and irresistible caresses suddenly appears in the flesh, she believes she's truly lost her mind.

Maddox of Everis was born a Hunter. Second son to a powerful ruling family, he volunteers for the dangerous mission to a far away, primitive planet called Earth. His mission? To track down an evil foe responsible for his twin sister's death. He's come ready for the hunt, prepared to kill, if necessary, but he is not prepared for the mating mark on his hand to burn with sexual fire. Shocked but desperate to find his mate, Maddox will do whatever it takes to protect her from his enemy. He expects to find a mate eager to welcome him into her bed and her heart. But Cassie is an Earth woman, an orphan who has no idea who or what she is... not a simple cowgirl, but a descendant of ancient warriors who once colonized Earth.

Cassie is a powerful shock to his system, a woman he will do anything to possess. But when he tells her the truth, that he's an alien bounty hunter and she's his marked mate, she refuses to believe him. That is, until the dangerous madman he's traveled across the galaxy to hunt finds her as well. Suddenly it's not just Maddox's skillful kiss forcing Cassie to rethink everything she thought she knew, but an evil alien bent on possessing her for himself. She'll have to trust Maddox with both her life and her heart if they're going to survive.
BLURB:


Nope. This late in the game, I'm giving away nothing!!! If anyone has a complaint, they can send it to the Oath Forger's Palace in Merim.


But I will share an excerpt. (Because I can't resist Roax. Seriously, who can?) Enjoy!



EXCERPT:


That ever-present storm in his eyes rages, dark and ominous. When Roax looks at me like this, I always feel like I'm seconds away from being swept away into some dangerous unknown.


"We don't have to..." I tell him. "You and I..." I swallow. "Tiam said 'most' would work. I don't need all five of you." I swallow again.


I hope he understands that he doesn't 'have' to be one of my five. I wouldn't force this choice on any one of them. Whether or not I can 'accept' them is one thing. Whether or not they want to be 'accepted' by me is just as important.


"We don't have to..." I repeat, needing him to understand.


He crosses the room too fast for me to prepare for his overpowering nearness. Suddenly he's there in front of me, all unleashed power. Lightning flashes in his dark eyes. "Like hell we don't."


His words are like bindings around my wrists. And then the imaginary bindings are replaced by his very real, hard and biting fingers. "I'll just stand around and watch the others kissing you, touching you, taking you? Is that how you picture it?"


I have no idea how I picture it. Right now, I don't even know how to speak.


He crosses my wrists behind my back and cuffs them again with one of his hands. His other hand digs into my hair at my nape and pulls on the wet locks, tilting my face to him. His firm body is pressed against mine. I'm trapped.


I never want to be free.


My entire body responds to Roax.


I don't know how he does this to me. When I'm with Roax, I'm a different person than when I'm with the others. I don't want to feel this powerless, this mastered. I feel lost, and I don't want to lose myself to him. At the same time, I'm not sure if I have a choice. Not when my body is screaming 'Yes! Yes! Yes!'


As his sharp gaze roams my face, moisture rushes into my eyes. I have no idea why. Don't blink. If the tears run down my cheeks, he'll notice.


He notices anyway.


"Shh, my little bird." He kisses one corner of my mouth first, then the other. "We're going to go slow, you and I. By the time we get where we're going, you'll be ready."
