He’s an Ujal who knows he’ll never have a mate. She’s a human who doesn’t want to take another chance on love. One small child doesn’t give them a choice.

With her toddler in tow, Vanessa Walker travels to Tampa, Florida to begin her new job at Ujal Station Tau. Then problems arise—her daughter is ill, and a sexy, demanding, overwhelming, purple-scaled Ujal is determined to do whatever he can to save Tabitha. When they realize Tabby isn’t ill, she’s Ujal, plenty of people don’t want Vanessa raising her newly tail-sporting alien daughter. Ujal royalty may support her, but only one person—one Ujal male—makes her feel safe: Erun fa Arex.

Erun fa Arex earned his position through blood, sweat, and scales with a trident as his constant companion. On Earth, he is the captain of the principessa’s elite guard, a worthy Ujal warrior matched by few. On Ujal, he grew up as a child slave forced to fight for sport and others’ pleasure. Fighting left physical and mental scars while the master’s growth-hormone injections left him unable to father younglings.

Erun never considered mating and having a family of his own until he meets Vanessa and Tabitha. Now he realizes everything he rejected—a mate and family—is exactly what he desires. And he will fight to keep them… to the death.


Erun is book four in The Ujal series. I really enjoyed this one. Kids add something special to a story when done right.

As I’ve said before I like the unique aliens in this series. Each Ujal has it’s own unique coloring, traits, and characteristics.

Erun’s history is harsh and dark. It’s made him who he is today; the hardened warrior. We also see that he has no reason to trust women, so his actions fit. At the start he comes off as an ass, but once you understand him more you see he has a heart and wants what all the others want, a mate and family. It was hard to learn about his past.

Vanessa is looking to start a new life after her husbands death, but little does she know his death isn’t what it seems. Besides that she soon learns her daughter is Ujal and they don’t want her raising her daughter. What is a mother to do, but fight for her child, Ujal be damed.

Theres surprises, action, tension, and love. I liked Vanessa and Erun together. They had a rocky start, but things turned out. I enjoyed how they interacted together and with Tabby along. What I especially loved was seeing Erun interact with Tabby. He was so sweet, patient, and loving.

Erun was a delight to read. One of my favorites in the series.

Rated: 4 Stars

  1. I have been meaning to try one of her sci-fi series after enjoying her paranormals. Ah, a gruff alien and a little girl do make it sound even better. 🙂

    • This was my favorite in the series. I think her Dragons of Preor are better, but the Ujal where fun and then introduces us to the dragons at the end. Hope you enjoy!

  2. OH, this one does sound good. I love the aspect of an alien baby! Thanks.

    • Your welcome! This was my favorite and I think it’s because we have a kid in it. I love when kids come into play.
