From the Back Cover
There's no room for fairy tales like romantic love in Ava Smith's life. No, she's spent the past five years keeping her younger sister Lily alive--a demanding job in a world with a sandstorm climate that's continually threatened by alien space pirates who enter Earth's crappy atmosphere and kidnap humans by sucking them up in tractor beams. Ava and Lily live in the tunnels, are governed by comm unit surveys, and survive by scavenging and trading bits and pieces of old Earth culture. Until the day they find a real paper magazine that should buy them food for a month. Yep, good times, happy times until Ava is caught by a space pirate tractor beam--kidnapped.
Koah is a battle-weary warlord, king or Krek of an alliance made up of several hundred planets. There are five alliances, five Kreks - The Five - and they have been at war for a hundred years. Fighting will continue until the Oath Forger arrives to unify The Five through her body, mind, and spirit, and bring peace to the Federation. Koah doesn't doubt the Oath Forger is coming, but he's losing hope she will arrive during his lifetime. Then one day he attends another amazingly boring Zebet meeting of planet counselors to listen to stories told by former pirate captives, and who walks in? The Oath Forger. The Oath Forger!
Sure, Ava is happy to be the Oath Forger, if the pretense frees up The Five and their armies to clear the pirates away from Earth. But sharing her body with five warlords? Not on this scavenger's to-do list. Of course if all five look like Koah, it wouldn't be a completely distasteful chore. Perhaps not even a chore at all.
And sure, Koah is happy to promise Ava he'll rescue her planet from the space pirates. He'd promise the Oath Forger anything because every little thing about this woman attracts him--from her wild red hair to her battered boots, this woman is hot. And of course, peace - yeah, Federation peace.
A new Reverse Harem story from Nia Mars, a writer who might inhale air, but who definitely exhales seduction with every breath and key stroke. A strong story full of action, suspense and world-building detail that brings to life space ships, aliens, Scavengers, Kreks and whole new worlds. Over five books, this funny, clever heroine matches wits against five very different sexy heroes who will steam windows and explode thermometers as they all try to out-do each other seducing Ava, the Oath Forger.
