About Forsaken (Battle Born, Book 2) by Cyndi Friberg
Commander Kotto Tarr is sent to reopen Lunar 9, the Rodyte outpost nestled inside Earth’s moon. His crew resents him, the rebel leaders have chosen his ship as their headquarters, and a personal tragedy led to his promotion. But the exasperating tangle fades away when he meets Raina Solano. Challenged by her intelligence and fascinated by her spirit, he is instantly attracted to the feisty scientist.
Raina is “bio-streamed” to a spaceship against her will, and worse, her best friend Ashley set her up for the unwanted adventure. She’s met by a gorgeous alien who insists she’s his guest not his prisoner. He needs her to reestablish a self-contained food supply for Lunar 9. Undeniably curious, Raina soon learns that he won’t reveal the details unless she signs a 6 month contract.
Is 6 months on the moon too much to ask for the adventure of a lifetime? Raina’s scientific mind is more than ready for the unbelievable opportunity until she learns there’s an ulterior motive for her recruitment. A protein marker in her blood has identified Raina as a potential mate for the battle born and Commander Kotto himself is determined to claim her.
