Leader of a human colony planet, Taryn Demara has much more on her plate than maintaining peace or ensuring her people have enough to eat. Due to a virus that affects male embryos in the womb, there is a shortage of men. For decades, her people have enticed ships to their planet and tricked the men into staying. However, a ship hasn’t been spotted in eight years. So when the blip finally shows on the radar, Taryn is determined to conquer the newcomers at any cost to ensure her people’s survival.

Prince Kason tro el Vallen needs to find a suitable planet for his people to colonize. The Kelderans are running out of options despite the fact one is staring them in the face—Planet Jasvar. Because a group of Kelderan scientists disappeared there a decade ago never to return, his people dismiss the planet as cursed. But Kason doesn’t believe in curses and takes on the mission to explore the planet to prove it. As his ship approaches Jasvar, a distress signal chimes in and Kason takes a group down to the planet’s surface to explore. What he didn’t expect was for a band of females to try and capture him.

As Taryn and Kason measure up and try to outsmart each other, they soon realize they’ve found their match. The only question is whether they ignore the spark between them and focus on their respective people’s survival or can they find a path where they both succeed?

(Approximately 75,000 words with a happy ending)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AN Unforgettable start to this series! Welcome to a brave new world, one like you'd never imagine. Donovan combines vivid world building with an intricate yet exciting plot to create a whole that held me captive from cover to cover. Her vibrant descriptions bring both planets along with the space ship to life in such a picturesque manner that I felt as if I were actually there alongside the characters. At the same time, the plot kept me on my toes, being both sizzling hot and endlessly exciting. The vividly lifelike characters really draw you in. The main characters definitely held my attention the most. I loved getting to know them on so many different levels. On top of that, the supporting cast of characters were just as much fun to get to know. The myriad of personalities that we meet were fantastic. I love how Donovan not only develops individual characters but also entire races, right down to the most intricate detail, without taking away your ability to imagine and develop them in your mind. This was a hot and exciting story that definitely has set this series off on the right foot. I'm counting down the days for the next installment because I can't wait to see what happens next. Please note that I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this novel.
