Gracie Jones was little more than a child when the Earth was invaded by an alien species. Escaping into the subway tunnels of New York City, she hid in fear of being captured. Discovered by four men who became her protectors, she fought alongside them and they became known as the Freedom Five. At seventeen, she made a decision that turned the tide on the war between Earth and the Alluthans but in exchange she gave up all that she knew.


Jefe is a Zion Warrior and commanding officer in charge of the Confederation of Planets military. When an unknown species begins attacking some of their outer settlements, he is assigned to discover who they are and stop them…at any cost.


Gracie unknowingly finds herself stranded millions of light years and hundreds of years in the future in a distant galaxy on an undeveloped moon. When an old enemy threatens once more, she does not hesitant to use her knowledge to try to stop them once again. Only this time, it is not just Earth she will be saving but the Confederation itself.


When their two worlds are thrown together, Kordon is unsure what to do with the strange, delicate creature that fights and behaves unlike anything he has ever encountered before. One thing he does know, he plans to keep her.




When Earth was invaded, Gracie Jones lost her family and was barely surviving in the subway tunnels when four men came to her rescue. She devoted herself to finding a way to destroy the aliens who wanted to harvest what remained of the human population. She never expected that her sacrifice would cost her everything and send her light years into the future. Three years after crash landing on a deserted moon, Gracie is finally rescued. The last thing she wanted was to fall in love with her rescuer. When the aliens who stole everything from her come back, Gracie is determined to do whatever it takes to protect her new world and the people she's come to love.


The beginning of the books was a little slow as the author set up the world building. I was expecting a little more action and dystopian backdrop, but things picked up when Kordon arrived on the scene. I loved their first meeting! Kordon was a warrior in ever sense of the world, and I loved how completely he fell in love with Gracie. I enjoyed the action in the book, the way they worked together to defeat their enemies. The only thing that detracted a little from the fun story was how everyone seemed to immediately adore Gracie, repeatedly telling us how fragile she was despite all her actions proving otherwise. She fell in love with Kordon a little too fast for my taste, but, overall, I enjoyed this book—a great mixture of sci-fi and romance that keep me entertained throughout.
