When Billie Temperson finally returned home, she had three goals. Find a place of her own, get settled into her new job...and avoid Talon McKay at all costs. Little did she know that she had a future larger than anything she could have imagined, and every plan she had made was about to crumble.
Talon McKay had always done what had been expected of him. He'd followed orders and left his home planet with his family to guard over the last remaining heir to the throne, kept his distance from the girl who entranced him more than any other, and had let her go when he realized he loved her. However now that Billie has returned, and with the fate of their planet unknown, Talon struggles to fight his primal need to claim her.
Will Talon continue to put duty first, or will he succumb to his need to claim his mate and set off a chain of events that will change the course of both their destinies forever?
