"Nemesis: warrior-soldier meets his fate with love with Kiara"
"They call him Nemesis. Once a renegade assassin, now a
warrior-soldier sworn to protect the innocent from the
ruthless mercenaries throughout the galaxies."
This implies quite the hero, and Nykyrian lives up to this
promise of a troubled hero who thinks he needs to love from
afar. He has always admired Kiara when she danced. Now
his feelings lead him to accept the job to keep her alive.
Kiara is intrigued, intimidated and confused by Nykyrian.
She knows she can trust him with her life and to keep her
safe, but can she trust him with her heart? She realizes
that he does love her but cannot say it.
Kiara has a death contract on her because her father,
President of the Gourish Consolate, Commander Tiarun
Biardi, refused to be intimidated by Probekin threats.
Against his better judgment, he hires Nykyrian but when it
looks like Nykyrian has harmed his daughter, Commander
Tiarum puts a contract on Nykyrian. Not the best move,
since Kiara has married Nykyrian and danger to him is
danger to her. Just being married to Nykyrian put her in
danger, because he has many enemies. One who captures
her. Nykyrian goes to save her knowing it will cost him
This is a fast paced adventure with many emotional scenes
that make the book hard to put down. The HEA ending is a
must for my enjoyment of a book... and I did enjoy this
one. [Sequel to PARADISE CITY]
