The Hunter. As the new Game Warden, Xrez Ym’ihla brings
patrons from across the galaxy to track prey in a game built to enslave the
weak and mate the strong. The business is a long running family legacy and Xrez
is determined to succeed as his father had before him. He hadn’t meant to let
one human occupy his thoughts, mind, and body.
His lies
may come back to haunt him, but if he reveals the truth, he’ll ruin his chance
to capture the heart of the one he wants.
The Prey. Esme Valdez had her entire life planned from
an early age. As a chemist, her life was average and mundane, just the way she
liked it. Until the impossible happened. Never did she imagine being abducted
by aliens and forced to participate in a survival of the fittest game called
The Hunt. If she survives and makes it to the end, she’ll be freed. If not,
she’ll be forced to mate the one who captures her.
Esme is
determined to win at all costs, even if it means putting her trust in a sexy
alien who taunts her in the most delectable way.
Their love
was built on betrayal. Can she trust him with her heart and life?

Excerpt
Xrez hadn’t
intended for the female to see him. Not yet anyway. But after the mother and
children left, he stepped from the cover of the trees and onto the bank of the
river.
She talked
under her breath about boyfriends and dating as she laid her clothes out to
dry.
Boyfriend. A male friend. Boyfriend. A regular
male companion whom one has a romantic or sexual relationship with. Boyfriend.
An item of clothing for a woman or girl that is designed to be loose fitting or
oversized.
Dating. When two people spend time with one
another. Dating. To establish the date of an object or event. Dating. To
indicate or expose as being old-fashioned.
Xrez
frowned. The intelligence file he’d read on humans had warned their speech was
riddled with nuances often hard to decipher. He’d found this true. He couldn’t
understand most of what was talked about as he’d followed the group. Now he was
confused yet again as she spoke about, “All the things I’m going to do when I
get home.”
She went
back into the water, deeper than she’d been before and dipped her head back.
She hummed as she ran her fingers through her hair. He watched her for a while
as she used her fingers to work out the kinks there. Then, as if in slow
motion, she straightened. He knew the moment her eyes caught sight of him,
panic and fear crossed her features. His female inhaled sharply.
His?
When had he
begun referring to her as his? When I started
spilling my seed like a youngling every time I think of her.
 “I’m not here to harm you,” he said before she
could bolt, hoping she didn’t try to run. And if she did…
The thought
of chasing her down stirred within him. His blood spiked with adrenalin.
His
predatory nature was already in hyperdrive. He hadn’t stalked and hunted in so
long that his body thrummed with excitement. He felt more alive than he had in
a long time. He now understood why hunters came from all across the galaxy to
participate in the games and why they hunted for mates and companions. Xrez
longed to have his needs sated. And he wanted her small, supple and soft body
under him.
A sound
escaped from deep in his throat.
