MEASURE OF A MAN
The setup and backstory of this second book in the Terran Realm series is readily available because the heroine tries to educate Ian in the ways of the Terrans. This is a plot-driven story -- the conflict builds, the action increases and the unexpected end begs for a sequel.
Ian Black is fencing stolen goods in the park when Mira runs into him. Against his better judgment he helps her hide. Ian doesn't believe a word of Mira's crazy story about Terrans, but he's attracted to her. She believes in his inherent goodness, but will he betray her to save himself?
