Worse than losing his life would be to lose the woman he loves.

Stranded on a half world in an unknown galaxy, seven Terrans and four Seneecians have declared an uneasy truce. But when three more Seneecians arrive at the temple, including their leader thought to be dead, the balance of power suddenly shifts.

The Seneecian D'har immediately assumes command, and he makes it clear the Terrans are now under his jurisdiction. Everyone must obey his rule as he takes full control of their weapons, their lives, and the only female, Kelen. But when Kyber announces that he and Kelen have mated, Kyber is banished from their midsts.

What follows is a harrowing ordeal as Kelen Chambliss fights to be reunited with the Seneecian who has claimed her heart, and Kyber struggles to survive long enough to get her back.

Warning! Contains pink crackers, tyrannical commanders, click!, twinkling lights, secret tunnels, scorch marks, and two people determined to break all the rules if it means they can be together.

Sandow looked at Kyber. The expression on the man’s face was impossible to read. Kyber felt a cold dread go through him at the thought of Kelen being in the same room as the psychotic commander, even though he tried to tell himself it would be better for her, as the physician would be there in the event she developed any complications from her contact with the black cloud. He never expected Sandow’s reply.
“I need to stick by Dayall, but I would prefer Kyber and Kelen be quarantined in a separate apartment, in the event there are any residual effects.”
Massapa gestured toward Gaveer and Tojun. “We’ll room together. What about sentry duty? Who should go first? And how many should be on guard?” He indicated the three corridors leading away from the atrium.
“You can seal the doors behind you,” Kyber answered. “We can do without guards while we’re here. We should be safe, even if the eye worms return.”
Fullgrath almost crowed with delight. “All right! Sounds like we’ve made our choices. Come on, Jules. I want to try some of that oatmeal Kyber told us about. Then I want to see if there’s any sort of shower or bathing stall. Hell, I’d be happy just to have some hot water I can use.”
Kyber watched as the men separated and disappeared into their choice of apartments. Before long, there remained he and Kelen, and the doctor and Dayall. Bending down, he cradled her in his arms and lifted her.
“Which apartment are you taking?” Sandow asked.
Kyber pointed at one of the doors on the other side of the room with a nod of his head. “That one.”
The physician glanced at it. “Good. I’ll be in the one next to it…in case Kelen or you need me.”
“Thank you,” Kyber murmured.
A faint smile lifted the corners of Sandow’s mouth. “You’re welcome,” he replied. Grabbing the commander by his boots, he proceeded to drag the man into their quarters. Kyber watched until the two of them were inside and the door sealed behind them, then carried Kelen into their own apartment where they would spend the night together.
Alone and undisturbed.
