Kordon Jefe is a Zion Warrior and commanding officer in charge of the Confederation of Planets military. When an unknown species begins attacking some of their outer settlements, he is assigned to discover who they are and stop them…at any cost.
Gracie unknowingly finds herself stranded millions of light years and hundreds of years in the future in a distant galaxy on an undeveloped moon. When an old enemy threatens once more, she does not hesitant to use her knowledge to try to stop them once again. Only this time, it is not just Earth she will be saving but the Confederation itself.
When their two worlds are thrown together, Kordon is unsure what to do with the strange, delicate creature that fights and behaves unlike anything he has ever encountered before. One thing he does know, he plans to keep her.
I won't say too much about the story as the synopsis gives away the basic premise. What I found enthralling was the heroine’s brave attempts to save her planet and those she loves. She's intelligent and great with computers but her Independence Day (gotta love Will Smith) idea about uploading a virus was inspired! Now, it does and it doesn't work out, leaving the never give up Gracie in quite a quandary; but Ms Smith somehow saves Gracie's life and sanity by thrusting her eight hundred years into the future! Okay, yes it's probably lacking in strong scientific basis, but boy does it work out for Gracie. Her distress call is finally heard and a whole new adventure begins!
There was a moment when I got teary eyed reading this. Gracie has been so brave, so strong, and then her world crumbles around her. I enjoyed the romance side of the book but it was Gracie who truly pulled me in. I'm reading along and thinking, well maybe my kindle is wrong and this story is nearly told and then bam, the story goes off at a whole new tangent! So surprises are in store along with scenes of hot loving but for me, the impressive thing is the heroine’s never say die attitude and self-sacrifice, along with her humour.
Now I need to get back to those other stories I've missed!
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
