They weren’t supposed to fall in love…
Still grieving the loss of his former mate, alien warrior Slate arrives on Earth with no intention of falling in love with the human female he’s agreed to marry. He’ll fulfill his duties to his people by procreating with the human, and he’ll provide for her and protect her as any decent Vaxxlian warrior ought to do, but he cannot fathom opening his heart to her. That is, until he stares into her soulful brown eyes and tastes her lips for the first time. But he worries he’s forsaking the memory of his former mate by allowing himself to develop tender feelings for the tiny human called Beth. Is it wrong to care for another female so soon?
Jilted by a cheating fiancé, B-list movie star Beth Spirit is eager for a fresh start away from the flashing lights of the paparazzi and the bad luck that seems to follow her everywhere. She signs up for Vaxxlian Alien Mail Order Brides on a whim and is shocked when a huge, musclebound alien named Slate shows up on her doorstep the very next day. But she finds his businesslike approach to marriage refreshing and she soon agrees to become his mate. Love, shmlove. Who needs it?
But when Beth is offered the movie role of a lifetime, she’s faced with a difficult decision—stay on Earth and rocket to stardom, or take a chance on the sexy alien warrior whose kisses leave her breathlessly longing for more?
