Publisher's Summary

As the squad leader of the Elite Warriors, Nikhil Kozar was the largest warrior in the Kaliszian Empire. When a shuttle crashes on one of their planets, the search and rescue mission turns into something much more complicated.
Mackenzie 'Mac' Wharton had agreed to guide a group that had wanted an adventure on her mountain. They got more than they bargained for when they were all abducted by a group of aliens called the Ganglians. Badly beaten and barely alive, Mac finds herself in the arms of the largest male she's ever seen. She should fear him, should be fighting to get away from him, but there was something about the massive male that called to her.
A traitor threatens the Empire. Someone wants Nikhil dead. The Zaludians want Mackenzie back. And then there was the secret she's keeping. Would it be the one thing that finally brought down the Kaliszian Empire? Or would it be the first step in its rebirth?

Loved Nikil, but...

I must say, I really enjoy listening to these productions. It's like listening to an old time radio show or something. The only problem with the story was Mac's hypocrisy and her justification for it. Not only does she rag on their beliefs (even after these are explained to her); but she holds back aiding her friend. She will help and stand up for others, but she lets her nearly suicidal friend suffer needlessly. This is excused as not telling someone else's secrets. This stance poses the question: will you allow someone to die or be abused or suffer when they are clearly suffering mentally and emotionally? Mac berates others for not being forthright and therefore lying by omission. REALLY? Still a great listen/read. It will make you think and entertain you, as well.

Minority report: Terrible Heroine - Skip This One

Let me start by saying, I am an M.K. Eidem fan. Her novel, Grim, is one of favorites of the “Mars Needs Women” trope. So, like other fans, my expectations were high. Unfortunately, Nikhil isn’t worth a credit. Skip this book and hope for the next.

The heroine has no redeeming qualities. She berates her true mate for the same actions (lying, keeping secrets, withholding) she commits. Throughout the story, she acts stupidly – liking slapping a warrior for a perceived insult. The likeable hero’s theme of, “you are safe I will protect you” is said over and over and over..Side note: I also didn’t like the plot line of the DD curvy heroine being starved in to a drop-dead gorgeous skinny b***h. Maybe if she had some donuts her personality would improve.

I also have a minor issue with the narration. The voice actress for the fearful, self-pitying minor character of Jen needs to be recast. The actress’ almost underage, monotone interpretation of Jen’s dialog did not help the character at all.
