Hope MacGowan is a city girl but reeling from a break-up on top of a layoff has her determined to have a weekend away in the North Carolina mountains - even if all her friends have bailed at the last minute. Hope's life is one big train-wreck and getting kidnapped by a tall, blond alien - even a gorgeous one - sure isn't helping. R'har crossed the galaxy to seek a mate on this newly discovered world and this delicate red-haired female is everything he's dreamed of - except happy to find herself mated to him. R'har knows in his heart he's her true mate, even if he's not human. But taking her doesn't mean he can keep her and somehow he has to convince Hope to choose him before time runs out....

R'har is the next Hir Warrior to go and seek his destined mate so he heads to the same location where Ra'kur took Jenna and he's been secretly watching and waiting for just the right female to come along. Hope has just been dumped by her lying Fiancé and lying Best Friend - she's also been sacked from her job and decides to go to the remote cabin that was booked for their Honeymoon.
A long walk, plenty of regrets, tears, an angry Momma Bear with Cubs, a 7ft scary roaring saviour, run for your life, captured with a stun gun, wakes up handcuffed in a strange place, tension and the 'drink and eat' mating offering. Heroine scared of handsome but strange Alien Hero so stunned again, wakes up with language chip implanted, Heroine demands to go home - but one slight problem.... their now in deep space and, little do they know it, but they're both about to be in deep shit too. Which starts a frightening, catastrophic and deadly chain of events..... but they do manage to complete the mating bond with a few rounds of sex.
There's no hope for Hope because she sends out mixed signals all the time and very patient, thoughtful and understanding R'har gets frustrated at always being judged because he's not Human. I would have gladly throttled her by now and gone back for a better choice - but slowly Hope's feeling deepen..... right up until R'har is fatally wounded and gives Hope a deathbed confession..... one that, tragically for him, undoes everything.
Loved R'har but I thought Hope was a very stuck up, disagreeable and annoying Heroine with not a lot of likeable qualities.... I wanted to shout "oh lighten up and give him a break woman!". But the story did have more world-building, heartbreak, drama, angst, danger, tension, sex and there's more up-to-date news about Jenna, Ra'kur and their baby. Dual POV's but it was mainly Hope's and, once again, I found the narration ok but, for me, I still feel Adam McLaughlin's older voice just isn't right for a young, fit and drool-worthy Alien.
Worth a credit? Because of the selfish and heartless Heroine I didn't enjoy this listen quite as much as the first book. However, it is a very addictive series and it's one that I'm going to continue with because these possessive and passionate Warriors are in desperate need to find a woman to love, spoil, protect and adore and I'm totally hooked. So, despite the annoying Heroine, this was, IMO, a creditworthy listen.
