Seventeen-year-old Téa Lane has dodged abusive foster homes and is surviving on the streets of Houston, all in order to achieve her STEM dream to become the first Latino female astronaut to spacewalk. One day, she discovers an anomalous Native American artifact that’s a powerful seed not of this world and her life is forever changed. It chooses Téa, an unlikely hero, and endows her with superhuman abilities surprisingly around the same time that a numerous amount of young girls start showing up missing or murdered.
After being chosen, a new and mysterious guy, Ben, shows up at her job and school, and Téa worries that he could be one of the murderers. However, she learns that he’s an alien from Aepi, a distant planet of peaceful and ocean-dwelling aliens that have come to Earth to seek refuge from the Epex aliens. Now, they have to work together against the growing threat even though they can’t stand each other. That’s perfectly okay by them since Aepi legend warns against their union anyway.
As Téa starts to buy into the whole fairy godmother turn of events, a surprise kiss from Ben forces her to make a choice: give up her new life or give up her first love. When the interplanetary war between the Aepi and the Epex comes crashing down upon them, Tea is faced with an even harder choice: save humankind or be the one to end it.
Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.

She looked him straight in the eye, those blue eyes that were so intense and she wondered what they’d be able to get her do? She was smart, level headed and not lacking in self-confidence. She loved who she was, she had a family who loved her and yet here she was sitting here discussing giving something to a man she would never consider giving to anyone.
Living on her parents’ ranch in the middle of nowhere, most people would give anything to be part of her family and have the kind of love her parents did. But Becky Friessen needed more than quiet and stability. She craved excitement, action, a spark of adventure and not letting anyone steer her into something she didn’t want to do, or living in a quiet piece of the world where nothing ever happened.
Until she meets a man who shocks her with an indecent proposal that she finds herself actually considering. He is a man she could never tell her parents about. He is a man she could never take home to meet the family. Only fighting this insane attraction between them could have her agreeing to something that could be a one-way road to heartbreak.
— “The Friessens are Back! Well written and powerful, the characters are unforgettable and you won’t be able to put the books down” – Patti. B
— “This book is one of the most emotionally provoking books I have read in a long time. Typical of Eckhart’s writing, the characters are realistically genuine and heartfelt and the story is non-traditional enough to cause angst for the beloved Friessen family.” aherman
“This is a tight-knit family, along with their cousin Andy, his wife, and their children. The kind of family we all wish we had.” Susan H.

“They say that right before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes. What a load of crap! The second I felt the “click” beneath my boot all I saw was his face. I had left him standing mere feet behind me, and if I moved a millimeter more, I would kill us both. If you asked me what you see before you die, I’d be the first to tell you that it’s not the life you’ve lived that replays in your mind’s eye, but the one you haven’t.”
