Bryan, a simple country sheriff, is ready to shoot someone and hide the body. One particular homophobic FBI agent is really pressing his buttons. Along with that he finds himself in the middle of an FBI investigation revolving around a
recent UFO crash landing, is questioned about a missing friend targeted by the FBI, and makes first contact with the very alien the FBI is hunting.
Daroshi, Ma’Rairan warrior, has fulfilled his obligation to his species, and is ready to mate. As second in command he monitored the rescue of his captain who crashed on Earth while collecting his mate, and witnessed the confrontation between a country sheriff name Bryan and his captain. Impressed by how courageously the brawny human male handled meeting a fully armed alien warrior, Daroshi asks permission to take Bryan a mate.
Neither male is ready for the problems that come with Daroshi’s decision, nor the passion that explodes between them.
This is the follow up book to, Nighttime Wishes and they must be read in order.
This book is Bryan and Daroshi story, but Shawn and Ziang is a big feature in it as well. Bryan is the town sheriff and like Shawn, just not happy with life in general. After seeing Shawn being swept away by the alien, he wanted to know, why he can’t find someone to love and take care of him. Little did he know he already had? Daroshi is Ziang First Officer and has decided to take Bryan has his mate. The problem is unlike Shawn; Bryan has no warning, courtship. And doesn’t take to kindly to being kidnapped by two seven foot aliens, once on the ship things don’t get much better. Can they all settle into a peaceful life?
Like the first book, this is a sweet tale about a lonely guy just wanting to be loved. The easy connection between all four is nice. The animosity between Daroshi and Haya is a good touch. I liked that Bryan had a great fight or flight attitude and he chose fight. Once again, we aren’t left with a cliffy but you know it’s opened ended enough for a book 3.
