STARKISSED by LANETTE CURINGTON
Leith McClure reluctantly takes the helm of the family
business while her father recovers from an alien virus and
finds herself in the middle of illegal trade with a Zi. The
deal was arranged by her father before his illness, and all
Leith wants is to finish the unpleasant business and return
home to Earth. She doesn't anticipate being physically drawn
to the exotic Warrior of Zi.
J'Qhir, the Warrior of Zi, reluctantly trades the precious
jewels for the cargo needed by his people. Embroiled in a
centuries-long war, the Zi have little contact with
off-worlders, and J'Qhir wants nothing more than to conclude
the transaction and return home to Zi. He is mystified by
his acute awareness of this human female.
An act of treachery by a trusted friend maroons Leith and
J'Qhir on an idyllic but deserted planet, where human and Zi
must learn to work together to survive. As they struggle
against the local flora and fauna, they also confront their
growing mutual attraction. With no chance of escape or
rescue, Leith and J'Qhir explore the strange new worlds of
each other and become forever starkissed.
