He’s arrogant, domineering, and... To. Die. For.
Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.
Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something... unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.
Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?

Born Arum, Hunter has been locked in an extraterrestrial battle his entire life. Employed by the Department of Defense, he is given the task of keeping a human woman alive. Lethal, arrogant and totally centered on his own needs, he doesn’t see the point of protecting her, but anything that pisses off the Luxen is worthy of his time. One thing he didn’t count on was the fact that Serena may make him do something impossible… actually feel human.
Serena must decide if she can trust Hunter, all the while trying to stay alive long enough to help solve the crime committed against her friend. Serena is thrust into the secret world of The Arum and The Luxen, and one of them is willing to kill her in order to protect their secret. As growing attraction between Hunter and Serena begins, a new threat suddenly appears. Hunter may just have to break the rules he lives by in order to keep Serena safe from not only The Luxen, and the government, but also himself.
