Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system. On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.

Join these three alien males as they go in search of love on the far side of the galaxy, on a primitive planet the resident lifeforms call Earth. What do you do when your planet runs out of women?

A matchmaking queen and a royal decree, that’s how. This book contains a bohemian blonde with a hell of a right hook, and an interstellar tycoon who is about to learn that the best things in life can’t be bought or sold, they have to be won.

This book contains a hopeful romantic who is giving up hope, and a soldier who is about to discover that love doesn’t obey orders, and it can’t be bound by rules.
