When Captain Tyris Bekkert crash lands on a planet that's been deleted from the star charts, he's sure he's doomed. What he doesn't expect is to find a village. The residents seem strangely reluctant to help him escape. All except Marlee.
She needs a partner.
For Marlee, trapped on a dying planet, Tyris's spaceship is a lifeline--an opportunity to change her future. She agrees to help him repair the ship, if he'll pretend to be her partner to appease the village council, who are obsessed with securing the next generation.
As winter closes in and they're cut off from their only means of escape, their pretence is tested to the limits, likewise Marlee's own resolve. The handsome space captain is everything she's always wanted.
But what's the point of letting yourself fall in love when you know it can't last?

If you read a Rinelle Grey story, you can trust in a happy ending. Love will always triumph, even if it seems impossible… Rinelle Grey writes feel-good romance usually in science fiction or fantasy settings. Her heroines are independent and headstrong, and her stories are hard to put down. She grew up in a remote area of Australia, without power, hot water, or a phone, but now lives with all of those and her (happily ever after) husband, daughter, chooks, ducks and veggie garden.
