Aisia Alistare stands as the last hope for the survival of the human race. Her duty as Nyne is to bond and mate, but the only man she can see herself with was taken from her six years earlier by the gods’ revered warriors: The Gala.
Jericho Geordineous can’t believe his luck when his latest mission, to bring an assassin to justice, lands him in the same room as Aisia. For years he believed her dead after her planet was destroyed by the Nyne assassin. Unwilling to let her slip through his fingers again, he resolves to keep her bonding ceremony from taking place.
Jericho and Aisia reignite their lost love, but someone is keeping a close watch on the two. The Nyne assassin has one more family to destroy, leaving the human race unprotected from the gods.
Can the reunion of Jericho and Aisia withstand the powerful evil determined to ruin them both?
Kara Wills has created a gripping, entertaining story with Gala Lover. For its short length, it feels full and rounded in both passion and character development.
Aisia is the last of her kind and being forced to pair with an evil man she doesn’t love. Only on the night before her mating ceremony does she discover her one true love is still alive. It has been six years since she’s seen Jericho and he has turned from an innocent young adult into a muscle packed warrior. He is now a Gala, a warrior that serves the gods, too good for commoners.
Kara Wills is gifted at writing sensual scenes that flow and fill our senses with a poetic, yet erotic edge. There was just the right amount of tension added to this book bursting with true love and possibilities. Jericho was an irresistible hero that was both strong, and sensitive with the woman he loved.
