HIS PLANET. HIS RULES…Trapped by Alison Aimes is an action-packed, sexy sci-fi that takes you to the brink of oblivion on a planet where only the strong survive.
When Bella West crash lands on penal planet Dragath25, the only thing standing between her and a mass of brutal criminals is one of their own, a ruthless loner known only as 673. But what starts out as a desperate trade based on protection and raw lust soon blossoms into a scorching need that will push them both to the edge.
Cadet Bella West has one simple objective when she joins the scientific mission to Dragath25, the notorious penal planet housing Earth's condemned. Earn the credits necessary to save her family from starvation. But when her shuttle crashes and the majority of her crew perish, her simple mission becomes complicated fast. Now, to stay alive she'll have to depend on one of Dragath's own. But such protection doesn't come free.
Convicted of a crime he didn't commit, 673 has become more beast than man after eight grueling years on an unforgiving, hazardous planet of dirt and rock—and even more treacherous inhabitants. He doesn't look out for anyone but himself and he certainly never grows attached. So when the bold female offers him pleasure in return for protection, he takes the deal without hesitation. He never expects how her touch will alter him. Or the growing realization that saving her may be the key to his own salvation.
But as dangers mount and their ‘simple' deal unravels will he prove to be her surprise savior or her ultimate downfall?
Because caring for someone on Dragath25 may prove the greatest hazard of all.
A tale of unbridled desire, stunning sacrifice, and unwavering love, Trapped is the first book in The Condemned Series.

What would you do in order to ensure your safety on a planet filled with danger? That's the decision Annabella West has to make in TRAPPED by Alison Aimes.
One of the most striking things about this story is that Annabella is truly a strong character. It would have been very easy to consider her a victim, but that is the last word that would apply.
The planet, which is a penal colony, is home to the worst convicts imaginable. What should have been a routine scientific mission went horribly wrong. The author made the planet come to life for the readers in order to provide a clear look at Annabella's dilemma.
Then there is Prisoner 673 who goes by the name Convict when pressed to provide one. He has had to learn to survive, which means there is very little about him that is soft. With the clock ticking, will the crash survivors be able to stay alive?
From start to finish, I found this paranormal romance to be fascinating. Based on the foundation laid by the author, there is plenty of room to develop this series.
