When Sky finds a critically injured Xyran warrior, she can't just let him die. She drags the unconscious alien home and dresses his wounds. He's difficult and arrogant, but she's more than enough woman to deal with him until he's gone. So what if he intrigues her? The last thing she can afford to do is fall for an alien.

Jaxt knows the betrayers who left him for dead on Earth will not live long: his bond-kin, Zoen, will paint the warship's walls with their blood. All he must do now is wait for Zoen to come. Unfortunately, the human woman who found him rouses his deepest instincts… Instincts he'd forgotten he had.

When Zoen finds Jaxt on Earth, he's not sure he approves of the female who cared for his kin. However, when Sky kills a Xyran about to attack, he understands Jaxt's insistence that she is their mate. Any female who shows such courage is worthy of his blood, and maybe even his heart.

The year is 2050 and Earth is a dying planet. Only the strongest will survive...

Earth is a dying planet; its inhabitants struggle daily just to survive. For women, there is the additional threat of abduction and enslavement by the fierce and unfeeling alien races, whose strength and technology the weaker humans are unable to match.

Sky fought long and hard to escape the refugee camp, and later the smuggler's community where she foolishly sought refuge, in order to live her life freely. Living in the desert may not be ideal, but the hard and lonely work of surviving day-to-day is a luxury few women enjoy. Her skills as a hunter and warrior are lessons that were learned the hard way, and she is determined never to be owned by anyone ever again.

No matter how hard she tries to appear tough on the outside, there is still a spark of softness and compassion hidden deep within her heart, much to Sky's own dismay. When she finds an unconscious and gravely injured Xyran warrior alone in the desert, Sky is unable to turn away and leave him to his fate.

Jaxt is bossy, opinionated, and foreign in almost every way. His changeable skin tone and unusual physical adornments aside, Sky can't help but be attracted to his outward appearance. Too bad his external beauty isn't matched by a kind heart. Nevertheless, Sky is too practical to pass up the opportunity to enjoy a few moments of sexual gratification. Knowing Jaxt will return to his homeland once he has fully healed gives the entire situation a low-risk, high-benefit ratio. When Jaxt announces that she is his blood-mate, the third person meant to complete the triad originally formed with his bond-kin Zoen long ago, Sky refuses to subject herself to anyone's authority, no matter how strongly both men call to her heart.

BROKEN is a stand alone story, second in the Planet Alpha series, and is a well written and fast paced science fiction novella. The blend of alpha males, treacherous humans, conniving aliens and steamy sensuality perfectly complement Sky's firecracker personality. A highly entertaining and suspenseful storyline, with characters you will both love and love-to-hate, I give BROKEN 5 stars for sizzling sexual chemistry and pure reading enjoyment!
