Sabine Priestley’s writing desk.......
Stephen King has men in the basement (they help him dig up new stories and unravel plot knots), I have dragons on my desk. Literally.

Finding one’s psi-mate is something every Sandarian hopes for, but when Ian Cavacent accidentally starts the bonding process with the Earthling, Dani, he has to fight his desire with every ounce of his being. If the process is completed, it would be both political and financial suicide for Ian and his family.
A natural klutz, Dani somehow always manages to land on her feet and win those mixed martial arts matches she’s so fond of. At home on Cat Island her balance is thrown when bazillionaire Ian takes notice.
Unfortunately some butt-ugly Torog aliens also take notice sending her life spiraling out of control and into Ian’s arms. But Dani isn’t the type of woman to let some alien voodoo decide her future or her mate…no matter how gorgeous the man is or how much pleasure he gives her.
For centuries the Cavacents have mined Earth for a precious element, carnium, while protecting the planet from other alien species.
Thanks to the Torogs, Dani and Ian must flee to Sandaria. As Dani learns to use her newfound psi powers, the empire crumbles around them.
Will their love be strong enough to keep them alive and get them back to Earth?


Waves of pleasure radiated out from his touch. She looked up into his eyes. They truly were the greenest eyes she’d ever seen and as she watched, they began to glow.
Oh, shit. Dani took a slow, shaky breath. She stood in the arms of an alien and this was the point of no return. Did she want to return?
His thumb brushed her lower lip.
The heat in her grew.
Her name was a rumbling growl that reverberated deep inside. She tingled everywhere.
He leaned forward, his mouth brushed her ear. “I’ll leave if you want me to, just say the word.”
He kissed her neck, tentatively, questioningly.  The heat of his lips melted any resolve she may have harbored. The thought of him leaving her now, in this state, was unbearable. Aroused on every level, she reached her arms around his neck and pressed against him.
This must be a dream. She moaned as he nipped his way down her neck causing little sparks of pain. Her entire body rippled with the effect. If I wake up now, I’m killing the person responsible.

As a fan of the sci-fi genre I was instantly drawn to this book's premise but once the final page was turned I was left a bit disappointed.  While there's much to enjoy about this book there's a few things that kept me from falling in love with it.  The main theme of opposites attracting amidst war and the end of the world is an enticing one but the set-up early on is one long info-dump full of sci-fi names and worldbuilding that's a bit excessive.  Sexy alien Ian is a Prince and Protector of Earth's resources and as such he's arrogant yet appealing.  Healing a feisty human female changes his future irrevocably as well as that of his people and sets him on a path that leaves him conflicted and bringing out his bad side.  Being royal makes him feel superior and being the mate of a human seems impossible and wrong.  From his family to his people he tries to stay away from her by being nasty and pushing her towards another which brings out his jealous side and makes him even more annoying.  If I were Dani I would've made him work harder to win her back.  Dani unfortunately isn't as strong-willed as I'd hoped though she's an MMA fighter.  She's funny, endearing, but also a klutz who wins fights by accident.  She was unaware of her psi abilities until Ian kickstarted them which caught her up in a war where her life is constantly in danger.  Her relationship with Ian sizzles and is full of sexual tension leading to super steamy encounters.  Their relationship's also frustrating as it's a constant push and pull with Dani being walked on.  There were numerous times I wished she'd just go for the other guy.  Once their romance heats up, so too does the story.  The middle section builds from the initial premise with exciting and action-packed scenes that unfortunately don't pay-off at the end as resolutions are too easy or forgotten all together.  On a whole it's good sci-fi but I'm hoping for more in the next installment.

My rating for this is a C+
