The heroine: Sasha – an artist and best friend to the bride, she comes to town for the wedding of her best friend to a Calderian. Calderian’s are an alien race who are on Earth to help set up Earth’s defenses and exchange technology. Sasha is a shy woman prone to anxiety and she lost her entire family in an auto accident.
The Heroes: Dagan – The king of the Calderians, he replaced his personal guard with Lumerian Knights who are widely known as the best fighters in the galaxy (like Jedi Knights). Dagan has come from Caldor for his best friend Cam’s wedding to a human woman. He is immediately attracted to Sasha and knows she is the one for him, he just has to convince her of the fact.
The Story: Dagan is on Earth for a few reasons, but when he sees Sasha, he knows she is the one for him and goes all out to try to win her. Calderian men are possessive and dominant. The romance between them is steamy from the start. The side story about the Lumerian Knigts, a super secret race of warriors that nobody knows about except Dagan and Cam is very interesting as well.
There were some very steamy scenes as usual in what I call the Alien Romance genre. I also cracked up a few times at the alien technology in this one. Like my favorite which would be so nice but is also so unbelievable. Sasha has a set of crowns to wear and when she puts one on all she has to do is think of what hairstyle she wants and some tech in the crown auto styles her hair.
The book is told in dual POV, but mostly in Dagan’s point of view and Teddy Hamilton does the narration. He is a great narrator with a wonderful voice and he is great to listen to. I don’t really like his voice when he is reading female lines so I wish this was dual narration, but it was still a good audiobook to listen to and I plan to listen to the next one right away as well.
