Kobe grows fond of the little mouthy human female placed in his charge for the duration of the space flight home. Once they land, she will no longer be his problem. Everything changes in seconds when he finds her in the ship’s bay, hanging by a thread in a teetering space shuttle, bound on either self-destruction or escape. Without thought to his safety, Kobe jumps from the shuttle when Zuri falls out and plunges to the planet beneath.
Zuri has no idea what danger they are in as they embark on a perilous journey. Both know if they make it out of the jungle alive, they will be separated—unless Kobe can figure out a way to keep his new mate.
