To protect the ones they love, they must first learn to trust each other.
The ketaurran war might be over, but it doesn’t mean the humans are safe. The work Cara does for the rebels is dangerous, but she likes what she does, and the independence it offers. Although her last mission was a success, it came with a deadly price. The mercenary she crossed wants her dead and is willing to pay a large bounty for the privilege.
Contrary to what the ruler of the planet thinks, the last thing Cara wants or needs is a bodyguard. Not only is Zaedon an elite warrior, but he’s all kinds of hot. If ever there was a male she could fall for, it would be him. Too bad their first encounter didn’t go well, and the male’s idea of fun is being overprotective and continually finding ways to annoy her.
Zaedon takes his role as guardian to his people’s leader seriously, the vow to protect Cara with his life even more so. The first time she taunts him with her alluring scent, he knows she is his mate—a fact he can’t share unless he wants to lose the infuriating female forever.
