I love a good romance especially when there’s a strong story line as well and even better, a power balance between the love interests. This story is a coming together of equals and is wonderfully free of needless misunderstandings. I do like it when grown ups just use their words. And revisiting Rada was a treat. It’s science fiction but the world building is deftly inserted and the tech talk comes in occasional and fairly brief snatches. This book stands alone but if you haven’t read the earlier novellas it will leave you hunting for them. – Amazon Review
An uneasy alliance between warring families gets heated in this otherworldly novella from bestselling author Ilona Andrews.
At first glance, the planet Rada seems like a lush paradise. But the ruling families, all boasting genetically enhanced abilities, are in constant competition for power—and none more so than the Adlers and the Baenas. For generations, the powerful families have pushed and pulled each other in a dance for dominance.
Until a catastrophic betrayal from within changes everything.
Now, deadly, disciplined, and solitary leaders Ramona Adler and Matias Baena must put aside their enmity and work together in secret to prevent sinister forces from exploiting universe-altering technology. Expecting to suffer through their uneasy alliance, Ramona and Matias instead discover that they understand each other as no one in their families can—and that their combined skills may eclipse the risks of their forbidden alliance.
As the two warriors risk their lives to save their families, they must decide whether to resist or embrace the passion simmering between them. For now, the dance between their families continues—but just one misstep could spell the end of them both.
