Albaterra Mates Series Book 5
There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his kingdom…except lose her.
Lena is a life coach who has dedicated her career to helping others find their purpose. After realizing she had lost her own path somewhere along the way, she made the journey from Earth to Albaterra in the hopes of finding her calling. When three months on the alien planet pass and she is no closer to the self-actualization she needs, however, Lena begins to feel like a fraud.
Khrel is a no-nonsense War Chief in the swamp kingdom of Pentaba, and he knows exactly what he wants. His life is a tribute to his Elder and his people, and he is willing to compromise everything for the Council. Until he meets Lena. She is able to burrow past his hardened exterior and see him for his deepest self unlike anyone else has before, and his unwavering alpha demeanor is thrown into question as he finds himself craving to know her and lusting after her voluptuous figure.
The Council has permitted a camp of Novai to settle in Pentaba, but Khrel discovers it might be his undoing when one night leads to desperate acts of violence. He rescues Lena from a rogue Novai colonist, but in saving her life he realizes he may lose his. Lena is forced into isolation under Khrel’s watchful eye for her protection and hatches a plan to escape and reunite with her only friend. When her plot puts her in jeopardy again, it is up to Khrel to protect her, but at what cost? Lena soon learns the lengths the muscular A’li-uud will go to for her safety, and Khrel is faced with a possible future in which everything he’s worked for is destroyed.
Is there any chance Lena and Khrel can have it all, including each other?
