He’s the leader of his clan, accustomed to being followed without question.
She’s the top salesperson in her company, used to negotiating every transaction.
Welcome to the Galactic Gladiator Games, where the toughest aliens in the galaxy fight for the most prestigious titles.

Fans of Ruby Dixon, Evangeline Anderson, and Grace Goodwin will adore these hot alpha aliens and their sassy human mates.
