MORE ABOUT THE BOOK...
Ayla is a villain. With a gift that allows her to see when anyone will die, she’s remorseless in her profession as the perfect assassin. When she wakes up in a cryo-tank three thousand years in the future, and no idea how she came to be there, all that matters is survival.
Rescued by Leith and the crew of the Nuria, Ayla discovers a far evolved world of space ships and galactic colonization. But everything comes with a price, and though Ayla is no princess locked in an icy tower, she still has to pay for the rescue she didn’t know she needed.
Given over to Leith, a darkly handsome man who reads Ayla far easier than she’d like, they must work together if Ayla is to repay her debt. As the pair come to learn how dangerous one another are, so too grows a lustful bond that comes with rules of its own. Fighting to learn why she was frozen, Ayla’s dragged into Leith’s past with a criminal organization seeking to take over this sector of the galaxy. In order to survive, Leith will need Ayla’s help, but Ayla doesn’t know if she’s willing to pay what it will cost her…
TRY BEFORE YOU BUY...
There’s nothing in the blackness.
No light. No sound. No escape.
Forever sinking in a timeless sphere.
Nevertheless . . . she was awake.
Floating in a void, only burgeoning awareness battled the slick restraints about her mind that were trying to curl her back into Morpheus’s embrace. Holding her a captive to sleep.
The struggle stirred her from slumber. She fought for each trickling thought as the hush lulled her. The warmth and safety weren’t a balm she wanted. With no perceived existence, cognizance spilled from her consciousness, slipping away like sand between her fingers.
She clenched her fists. Held nothing in hands she couldn’t see.
Incited, she rebelled at the confinement.
The barest ripple touched her, coming from the heart of the abyss.
Something out there sought her, and she wanted to answer it.
This was a prison, and someone was pounding on the walls.
A shadow called within her, one she wasn’t frightened of but welcomed like an old lover, gone too long, leaving her alone in the dark. A power to see inside the soul of someone and know when they would die. Not the circumstance. Not the time. Not the year. Just the day and the month.
