Dragon-shifter Lord Alek has not been lucky in finding his life mate. Resigned to a lonely life, he attends the bridal ceremony out of familial duty. Then the impossible happens–Kendall. Nothing goes according to tradition, but he can’t let that dissuade him. She is his only chance at happiness and, no matter how she protests, he’s not going to let her get away.
Kendall Haven’s life turns upside down when she’s kidnapped off her fueling dock home by thugs claiming to have the right. Her gambler father used her to cover his losses. Drugged and treated like cargo, she’s sold to the highest bidder–a bride procurement agency.
Landing on a primitive planet on the far edge of the universe, she has no intention of fulfilling her father’s contract–even if that contract includes marriage to a very handsome, very sexy, very intense barbarian of a man. He might be everything a woman fantasizes about, but he wants a little more than she can give.
