Sometimes a lie is the only way to get to the truth. Rhal fa Adar—Ujal assassin—is a liar and Cara is more than ready to beat the truth out of him.Thoughts on Rhal: Wow. Rhal and Cara had some BIG hurdles to get past before they could claim their Happily Ever After. I mean, between the lying (to "protect" the one he loved) and the betrayal (also to protect, but without the sarcastic air quotes) they had A LOT of things to work through.
To Cara Marte, the Ujal are everyday average people—er, aliens—who occasionally grow fins and scales. They’re friends and colleagues, and mates? Cara knows she wants Rhal fa Adar—with his thick muscles, midnight black scales, and dark eyes. He always keeps her at arm’s length, sharing pleasure and nothing more. He wants her but refuses to mate her. When she discovers the reasons he told her are lies, she takes her battered heart to the Intergalactic Mating Agency. Her match is out there, and the agency promises to find him. But what if all she can imagine is a future with Rhal?
Rhal fa Adar is no one’s idea of a worthy mate. He sacrificed his soul for Ujal as the king’s secret assassin, and now he is one of the prince’s high guards. His tainted soul means he cannot have Cara and yet when Rhal discovers she’s gone to the Intergalactic Mating Agency to find a mate, he realizes he will not—cannot—lose her to another. Cara may hate him for his lies and breaking her heart, but he is a smart male and is sure he can put it together again. Eventually.
The only problem with Rhal’s plan? An evil from his past appears on Earth and shatters the tenuous bond they share. Now he prepares for the hardest battle of his life—the one for Cara.
But alien matings wouldn't be alien matings if they didn't come with a large capacity for forgiveness. Well, I guess that's not true for all alien matings *looks pointedly at Tave's parents*, but...well, you know.
Anywho. Rhal and Cara. They have it rough. First the one thing, then another. Throw in Cara's slow transition to Ujal and things get even more complicated. Well, that and the appearance of some VERY unwanted people from Rhal's past. And a little danger. And Rhal being half-feral and stuff.
You know, the usual. In other words, GOOD TIMES.
