Cultural anthropologist Grace jumps at the chance to act as Earth Commands emissary to the alien planet of Lyra.  Her fascination with the Lyrans and desire to learn about and from them is genuine.  So is her and attraction to warrior Dekkir who insists he’s her true mate, but not all is as it seems. 


An attack on the High Chief leaves her as the prime suspect and forces her to face the truth about the true motives of Earth Command.


Dekkir is determined to convince Grace that she’s his mate, but corruption within the Lyrans as the sinister motives of Earth Command conspire to keep them apart, if not worse.


As the first for Lyra intensifies, so does the passion between Grace and Dekkir.


Only together will they be able to face down the enemies circling and save Lyra.
