Earth is losing the war with the Anquesh. The world government needs TerraMates to find a bride for an alien warrior and finalize a peace treaty with the dangerous race. Jennifer Carden never thought Kai would select her as his mate. He's tall, dark, devilishly handsome, and different from all the males she's ever kwn. Once Kai decides Jenn is his sindare, she's taken to an alien planet. On Anquera, she discovers there will be competition to win her marriage rights. And things are different in space. What does it mean when the word for wedding ceremony translates to 'trial by combat'? Jenn's going to find out. This story takes place in the TerraMates universe, but can be read as a standalone vel.
