He crash landed on her planet. Can they survive the winter together without falling in love?

Stranded on the dying planet of Zerris, Marlee longs for the one thing she can’t have…a family. Due to the noxious gas covering the planet, she can’t conceive a child, and the Council, determined to repopulate the planet, have ended her third—and most precious—relationship. They insist she pick a new mate and try again, but she’s sworn off love and the possibility of ever having a real family.

When a ship from the thriving planet of Urslat crashes on Zerris, Marlee rescues the ship’s daring captain, Tyris. His ship is grounded, winter is setting in, and he won’t survive without help. She offers him a deal…he can live with her if he pretends to be her mate so the Council will leave her alone.

Tyris agrees and a hungry desire sparks between them as they battle the harsh winter and primitive conditions. Their attraction grows, and soon, keeping their distance becomes impossible, even more challenging than the snow, the Council, and, for Marlee, the risks of a real relationship.

Will she risk her heart one last time for a chance at her dream? Or will Tyris be her undoing?

Another writer with a fantastic view of humans as they populate the stars and the habitable planets that they contain.

What Readers are Saying

I am suffering from a “book hangover!” because of this book.  It was sooo good, that I am having difficulty starting another book, because I am still living in the world of Tyris and Marlee.

What Readers are Saying

From the beginning, author Rinelle Grey draws the reader in. You want Tyris to succeed. But you also want Marlee to succeed, and for a time their purposes might be counter to each other. Ms. Grey does an excellent work in rounding out her characters, not through description, but through dialogue and actions. She builds the drama as events progress, even conspire, in keeping Tyris trapped on this dying planet.

What Readers are Saying

Wow! What a well written story that brought a whole new world to life. Tyris and Marlee both had such different upbringings and environments but were able to connect so well. I loved that it wasn't a typical romance book. It was about internal and external(environment) struggles as well.

What Readers are Saying

The main theme of this book is a love story, but there are strong sub-themes related to personal rights, exploitation of resources, and the powers of governance. The inter-weaving of these sub-themes, and how they impact Marlee and Tyris, are central to the drama.
