Ambassador of the Domini by Talia Rhea (epub) Mates of the Domini Book 4
ALANNA HAS ALWAYS HAD HER HEAD IN THE CLOUDS
Negotiating for humanity’s future? That’s fun. Acting as the go between for humans and aliens? That’s easy. Having a mate that doesn’t want you? That’s confusing. He told she was his, then said he didn’t want her. What is she supposed to believe? She can’t make a scene. There’s too much at stake in Earth’s first contact. Peace and prosperity are dependent upon working with the male who makes her feel grounded for the first time in her life but who has refused her as his mate.
SURVII HAS NEVER BEEN ABLE TO KEEP HIS FEET ON THE GROUND
A single female to share pleasure? That’s boring. Settling down and making a den? That’s horrifying. Suddenly wanting all of it after seeing her? That’s confusing. He needs to focus on negotiating with Earth, on convincing them to accept the protectorate treaty, but all he can think about is her. Having a mate always seemed like a burden, but nothing has ever felt more freeing. She experiences reality in a way he’s never been able to appreciate. But he wants to. Until Earth attempts to sell him his own mate.
A LOVE THAT WILL DEFINE AN ERA
A lasting agreement between people has been settled by marriage for centuries. To the domini, it’s insulting. To the humans, it’s an opportunity. But not everyone is eager to welcome extraterrestrial visitors, much less enter into an agreement that would allow human experimentation and promote interspecies mating. They’ll do anything to put a stop to it. The future of humanity hinges on love and understanding.
