|When her best friend disappeared, Jenilyn takes a job with the company her friend worked for to try and find clues to what happened. She knows that the company has something to do with it. But all she finds are the firm's illegal activities. Suddenly, jail for the embezzlement charges sound like the safest option, at least until she's given an incredible offer by her attorney. Instead of jail, she can go to the farming planet of Kilara with aliens as their mate. Zintssar and his brother Kernztssar are on Earth both to testify in a trial and for diplomatic reasons when Zin scents the woman who is fated to be their mate. Luckily, they know she's innocent but hiding a secret. Hopefully she's as accepting of their secrets as she is of theirs. That is assuming they can keep her safe long enough to share them.
This is the second book in the Galactic Nuptials series, and yes, you could read this as a stand alone novel. But be warned that you're just going to want to buy the first book from the tidbits that you're given. Plus, the story between Jeni, Zin, and Kernz is both sweet and sexy all at once. I think Zin and Kernz are great characters with incredible talents and secrets I'd like to have seen a bit more of. In fac,t that was the one problem with the book, as much as I really enjoyed the characters and their stories, it just felt like the whole book fell a bit flat and didn't really finish. I'm hoping that it will be tied up better in a future book, but I didn't really get that impression. This series really has so much promise and I loved the first book, and enjoyed this one, but I really need it to go back to more like the first!
