Mandy Jacobs sought a job on planet Ussed because it took her far from her problems on Earth. Her goal has been simple—keep a low profile. Not that easy to do when two larger-than-life barbarians are keeping an eye on her. Avoidance seems like her best plan of action…until danger from her past comes calling. Soon on the run from an old enemy, a new enemy, and hunky warriors with a crazy notion to claim her, she’s running out of options.

Zhen and Lore have bonded, but they’re in need of female to complete them. When they see Mandy, they know. She’s the one. But the stubborn human female needs some persuading. And some saving, since she’s got humans and a rival clan after her. With time not on their side, Zhen and Lore must convince Mandy that she belongs with them. And that if she’ll let herself, she’ll find acceptance in the arms of not just one, but two barbarians who have nothing but love to give.

Excerpt:

A few females came closer to Lore, chattered and flirted, and stroked his arms with invitations for later play. Lore didn’t respond, though he did keep the notes handed to him, and Zehn noticed more than one woman leave with a dash of hope in her eyes.

When Lore rejoined him after disposing of those notes, Zehn shook his head. “Not nice, teasing the visitors.”

“Why not? It’s all part of the ‘Welcome Package,’ so I’ve been told.”

Zehn frowned. “By who?”

Lore nodded in the direction of the administration building. “The supervisor. Franklin.”

Zehn didn’t like the small man, but he’d been told to behave himself if he wanted to continue serving as resort security. Since he and Lore needed the human female to come to them, they needed time to court her properly.

Because of the East-West Treaty signed hundreds of years ago, western foreigners could not be attacked or kidnapped without repercussions. In return for leaving the rest of the planet alone, the westerners received barbarian protection. All three tribes rotated members in and out of the resort. But Zehn’s clan, of the Cloud Tribe, was located closest to the resort, thus many of their members had offered their services to keep the peace between offworlders and the native barbarian population.

Zehn would much rather have abducted the female and returned with her and Lore to their village. But the resort had already lost two human females to Zehn’s clanmates. He and Lore had to be very careful about their interactions without drawing suspicion about their activity.

They’d already decided on Mandy of Earth as their bond-mate. They just needed to show her how much she had to gain by joining with them. Clearly her ties to the resort had nothing to do with the people, since she buried herself in the admin building and didn’t leave it until the suns set. Her pattern remained unchanged, and Zehn knew the time had come to let her see their true intentions.

“No time like the present,” Lore said as their shift ended.

Zehn nodded. “But we must be subtle. She’s smart.” He glanced at the administration building. She’s watching us.

I’m still not sure how she’s avoided us so long. Lore gave a rare grin. She’s a good choice for a mate. A real challenge.

Zehn nodded, then frowned as he studied his bond-mate. You’ve gone too long without warring. Your energies have surged to excess.

I can handle it.

So Lore liked to think. Mm-hmm. Zehn sent Lore a mental image of what he had in mind, saw Lore’s eyes glow with a familiar heat, and knew the time had come.
