The heroine: Sawyer – she is a kindergarten teacher who finds her fiancé balls deep in his best man and walks out on him, speeding away from him to put as much space between her and her fiancé as possible. She gets into an accident on the highway and wakes up to find she has been abducted by aliens.
The Hero(es): Haelian – second in command to General (and Prince) Kloran of the Lunarian warriors. Since Kloran found his fated mate in a human woman who was abducted from her planet against her wishes, he has sent Haelian after the group who had been illegally taking human females off their planet. Haelian has been made General since the prince has stayed on Lunaria with his mate and daughter.
The Story: Haelian found the group who had been abducting females from earth and selling them as slaves at auction. He found out that they were also giving the pick of each shipment of females to the Rutharians in exchange for being left alone by the evil Rutharians who are the scourge of the universe. General Haelian has found that three females from Earth have been given to the Rutharians and he and his men plan to sneak aboard the Rutharian ship to free the women.
Some of the standard alien romance tropes are used in this series (especially the one where there are almost no females left in the Lunarian species and they need to find women of other species to bear their children so that their species doesn’t die out completely). Though I was happy to see that in this series, the Lunarian warriors actually wear clothes instead of traveling through space in loincloths like many of the other series I have read. As much as I love the “D”, I really do like men in clothes.
Like the first, this book was told in dual points of view and via dual narration, where the male narrator does the chapters in Haelian’s point of view (including the female lines) and the female narrator does the narration on all of the chapters in Sawyers point of view. The narrations were Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister. The both have very pleasant voices that work well for these characters and I enjoyed listening to them.
I liked the storyline in this book a bit better than the first book. Haelian is a great heroic character. In the first book, I loved the way he was so focused on stopping the abduction and sale of humans even before he found that human females can procreate with Lunarians. Sawyer is a strong female lead and an interesting character as well.
