Claimed by Noatak

The last thing this sexy alien expects is a captivating human who makes him vulnerable to wicked temptations. Will one searing kiss unleash his raging desires?

Gruff, pragmatic Noatak is just trying to get from one day to the next without failing his captain and crew. His ionic ability has always given him an edge when it comes to hijacking corporate ships, but his powers are on the verge of collapse, and the ship's doc says even taking a mate will kill him unless they find a cure. To complicate things, a captivating new crew member appears to be just his type.

Marlis has a sixth sense for danger, a keen aim with her pistol... and a dream-crushing brain injury. She planned on becoming a trooper her whole life, but now she’s disqualified. Setting out to find a new career, she takes a job working alongside a huge, bearded alien with gleaming copper skin and bedroom eyes. When the ship's doctor claims he can repair her brain injury, Marlis thinks she may’ve just found her dream job.

But there’s always a catch…

No cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. You can read this as a standalone, although you'll probably enjoy it more if you read Rescued by Qaiyaan first. WARNING: The series contains explicit language, sexual situations, and possible triggers and is intended for audiences 17 years and older.

About the author

Once upon a time I thought I wanted to be a biomedical engineer, but experimenting on lab rats doesn't always lead to happy endings. Now I blend my nerdy infatuation of science with character-driven romance and guaranteed happily-ever-afters. My monsters always find their mates, with feisty heroines, tortured heroes, and all the steamy trouble they can handle. I promise my stories will never leave you hanging (although you may still crave more!)
 
When I'm not writing, I'll be in the garden or the kitchen, exploring Alaska with my husband, or preparing for the zombie apocalypse. I also love wine and hard apple cider, am mediocre at crochet, and have the cutest 12-pound bunny named Abigail.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW AN EXCITING NEW SERIES FROM NETFLIX • The shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning in this “tour de force of genre-bending, a brilliantly realized exercise in science fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold.
