The heroine: Jia Morgan – she lives and works on the asteroid mining station Fortuna Tau. She is a mechanic is assigned to repair damage to General Tarak’s main warship, Silence. Jia can’t believe she is finding herself attracted to a fierce Kordolian warrior.
The Hero: Kalan – a Kordolian Warrior, second in command to General Tarak. He is overseeing the repairs being done to Alpha-Class battle cruiser, Silence. While the repairs are being done, he is doing bodyguard duty and keeping an eye on Jia. Kalan finds he enjoys keeping his eye on Jia but is confused as to why he can’t keep his eyes off the tiny human.
The Story: If you have read any of the previous books, you know what happens on Fortuna Tau, and this book takes place within the same timeline as some of the prior books. We know that a few of the Xargek (huge bug-like creatures, similar to large cock-roaches) were on the station and they are not only deadly, but can multiply very quickly and infest a station or a planet in no time if they are not found and destroyed.
While fighting the Xargek, Kalan finds himself wanting to make sure Jia is safe and wanting to protect her despite the fact that she is braver than a lot of the humans on the station. The romance was great in this one, as they spent quite a bit of time getting to know each other. There were some steamy scenes and quite a bit of action and adventure. This was the best book in this series so far.
