Zach agrees to help Raven, and finds himself drawn into a world he never knew existed.

Zach Harliegh was a baby when the aliens arrived. He doesn’t remember much about those months, except his parents fighting and his dad leaving. His father died, destroying the aliens, and his mother when Zach graduated from medical school. He’s alone in the world, working hard to get his career going leaves no time for any kind of relationship.

One night, a beautiful man is brought into the ER. Raven Sanderson has been severely beaten, and seems unsocialized. Raven and Zach hit it off when Zach takes over his care. Raven can’t speak, but writes notes to Zach, letting him know the man is in the city to find his sister.

Zach agrees to help Raven, and finds himself drawn into a world he never knew existed. A world full of alien creatures that read minds, and heal with a simple touch. He realizes there is more to the world around him, and the aliens he thought were destroyed weren’t. Their off-spring walk among us.

Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released elsewhere. It has been revised and re-edited for re-release with Pride Publishing.

General Release Date: 7th February 2017


Nooooooooooo!!!!!!! This had so much promise, and yet I am left unfulfilled. Not going to lie, was really bummed about this one. It still needs some editing/revisions since there seems to be a lot redundancy and contrasting information. One being: If aliens could read minds then why couldn’t they detect the deceitfulness in Zach’s father?

In addition, I felt like some of the story is missing and left with more questions than answers. The author would’ve taken more time with this and really expanded upon the depth of not just the characters, but the planet Opal as well. Even though the book leaves Zach and Raven with a HEA, the chemistry between them, even given the instalove is non-existent. Which is sad because who doesn’t love a hot alien action?!?

I love reading books about boys who love other boys <3. Sometimes there is a HEA or HFN, but sometimes it just is. Yes, I love all outcomes even it is not what I hoped for. We all need a good cry from time to time. As you can probably can tell, I love cliffhangers as well. Yeah, I am one of those people :) I read a variety of genres, whether it is dark/taboo, historical, shifters, GFY, SciFi, mysteries/thrillers; I love it all.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
