Half human, half alien, Gryke is the most vicious Bracadyte in Aukrabah. His hatred and distrust for the land walkers runs deep—especially for Fiona Henagar. The female Marine is smart, gorgeous, and self-sufficient. With every breath, she confounds him and attracts him. But when she steals the ancient Bracadyte scrolls, Gryke has no choice but to confront his feelings for her and go after her. Fiona Henagar doesn’t have time for love. She lives a life of duty to her country until her son, Andrew, is kidnapped by the government. Stealing the Bracadyte scrolls to pay off her son’s kidnappers, Fiona vows to stay one step ahead of Gryke—and her growing feelings for him. As they fight against government plots and spies, will they succumb to their deepest desires or will old prejudices tear them apart?
