Publisher's Summary

Jesse Sampson and her two younger sisters have lived a hard life on the streets of Seattle, Washington, for the past several years. Four years before, the Earth received its first visitors from space, causing mass fear. Alone in a world gone mad with just her sisters, Jesse has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what was left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered the Earth.
The Trivators have taken control of the Earth to prevent the humans from destroying it in their fear. A world of warriors, they are sent out by the Alliance of Star Systems to seek out new worlds. Their mission is first contact. They are to establish communication with the leaders of the new worlds they find and bring them into the Alliance. Any resistance is to be quickly subdued to prevent unnecessary death of the inhabitants of the new worlds they find. Their payment comes from the success of their mission.
Hunter is what he is called. A hunter, one of the elite clans of the Trivators who seek out those who resist. His abilities to track, capture, and eliminate those who try to harm any warrior are renowned. He finds the tables turned when he becomes the one captured by a group of ruthless humans.
Hunter is shocked when a strange human female risks her life to help him escape only to disappear into the ruins of the city. He now has a new mission, finding the female who saved his life. He is determined to find her before she is damaged by others of her kind.
What he finds is a reward beyond comprehension to a Trivator warrior: a family. Can he convince Jesse that he can give her and her younger sisters a better life on his world? Or will fear keep her from accepting what he has to offer?

Great read..

Any additional comments?

This is not my usual genre, I think it might have been the second alien book I've ever read and the other book was by the same author, I think? A Touch of Frost, which was an awesome read too.I really liked Jesse and Hunter. She loved and cared for her two sisters: Taylor and Jordan until it almost killed her. And Hunter, because he grew to love them all and took over the care of them. I really liked Dagger and Saber, too. I'am surprised that this author's next book is about someone who was only mentioned once on the last few pages of the book instead of about Dagger. She left you hanging about what happened to him then didn't write a book about it. AND, no, this is not a cliffhanger but it did leave you wondering.
This was a sensual read so all you Christian readers and "no sex" readers stay away. The F-bomb was let loose 15 times but since I'm a potty-mouth anyway it didn't bother me. But for all of you with Christian ears it would be a horrible thing for you.

As to the narrator: He did a damn good job. He gave Hunter a really sexy voice but with a male reader you'd expect that. He also gave the women a nice feminine voice, too, which you don't expect. Male narrators usually do a terrible job on women but Mr. Brenin did amazingly well. I would definitely want to listen to him again.

In Hunter’s claim, we meet Jesse. She is the eldest of three girls, living on the streets of Seattle, Washington after the Earth is conquered by a race of aliens. She is desperately trying to protect her younger sisters from the evils of mankind as well as the warrior aliens that have claimed to have conquered Earth with the intentions of peace. She is making her way back to her hideout with food for her sisters, when she overhears a group of humans about to torture one of the warrior aliens. Unable to just let him die in such a gruesome manner, she risks everything to free him. Jesse wasn’t ready to feel the instant attraction to the strong alpha warrior with the glowing yellow eyes. Nor was she ready for the life changing consequences saving him would have on her and her sisters’ lives. Hunter is amazed that this tiny human female is risking her life in order to save his. In return he does something he never thought he would do; he offers her and her sister his protection by making Jesse his wife. But what Hunter wasn’t expected was a fiesta, stubborn woman with a strong personality and a backbone of steel.

This book was a shocker for me. I wasn’t expected too much from it but I was pleasantly surprised after listening to it. This is my first time listening to a book by S.E. Smith and I have to say I would be looking for more of her work. S.E. Smith does a fanastatic job of building a world and providing detail for her story and characters to grow. S.E. Smith was able to make the heroine strong but still with just the right amount of vulnerability and the hero was a growling alpha male that wasn’t afraid to let his guards down. This book also contains a decent amount of action scenes that made the book interesting from start to finish. From the first page until the end, I was entirely enthralled with this book.

Big Bonus, the narrator, David Brenin, so YUM!! He knows how to tell a story and not just read a book. I eagerly anticipate the next installment of this series.

IMO (in my opinion), pick up the book and give it a try. It is definitely worth the listen.
