The heroine: Alice – lives in an old hardware store with her younger cousin Natalie. She has learned to survive when the deadly alien insect swarms invaded Earth. She is able to get around and forage for supplies by covering her scent.
The Hero: Kaj’k – he is a Xarc’n warrior (hunters), an alien race that traveled the galaxies hunting the scourge (alien insect swarms that devastated planets and ate all the life as they went). The Xarc’n hunters came to Earth and offered to help in the fight. Most governments didn’t trust aliens after the scourge came.
The Story: Alice had a healthy fear of the huge Xarc’n warrior. The government warned that the Xarc’n may have sent the scourge only to come in later and clear them out and take over. Though Alice and Natalie know that probably isn’t true, there is still the fact that women seemed to disappear when the hunters are seen in the area. When she first sees Kaj’k all she knows that he is huge, muscular and pretty scary.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Troy Duran and Kiera Stevens. I love Troy Duran, who has a super deep and sexy voice which is perfect for the huge alpha alien male. Kiera Stevens has a pleasant feminine voice which is age appropriate sounding for Alice.
This was one of the few alien romances that takes place on earth and I liked the concept of this one. The Xarc’n race didn’t lose all of their females like in so many alien romances, but they are clones that were made specifically to hunt the scourge and so only males were created. Human women tended to waken their dormant mating instinct and Alice was that woman for Kaj’k.
