In the 21st century, Nick Wyatt saves people and dodges the alien warriors who killed his mother. Sixteen years ago, with the powerful stone his mother left him, Nick saved a teenage Riane Arvid from her Xeran attacker.
Temporal enforcer Riane Arvid leaves on a mission, but sabotage strands her in the 21st century with both traitor Ivar Terje and the Xeran Victor hunting her. Nick again saves Riane, who is suspicious when she realizes Nick is half-Xeran. Nick is taken aback, but with the Xerans hot on their trail they must keep moving. Despite their differences, the passion between them is highly combustible. But can these two have any kind of future? (BERKLEY SENSATION, May, 282 pp., $7.99)
