When fate makes a choice, it takes an alien warlord to shift the tides...
Mara James is angry as hell. Not only is the Union trying to make enemies out of one of the most dangerous warrior races in the galaxy, but somehow she's come face to face with their fiercest warlord. And he couldn't be any hotter.
Having suffered through the humiliation of a failed mission with the Flora and the Brion menace, Mara and the rest of the Terran Union fighter pilots are hungry to prove themselves. But for Mara, that chance comes in the form of something completely unexpected - Nadar Brengen. The rebel Corgan warlord who won't take no for an answer when he sees something he wants.
And this time, it's her.
Considering that everyone in the galaxy seems to be against it, that seems to be a whole new mission waiting to fail. Not only must they deal with the spark of passion between them, but the stubbornness of the Corgan ruler, willing to risk everything for ancient rites and rules.
Unless Nadar can change his whole race's opinion - the fierce and unyielding Corgans, who are rumored to cut up other races for spare parts and laugh while they do so.
Unless he can fight, bleed and win for not only Mara, but the future of his people and the land they consider holy.
Unless he changes fate. Unless they change it.
But when a woman makes both your hearts beat like hell in your chest, anything's possible, right?
