Elite Hunter Zee is scarred from his time in the Hive war leaving him too much of a monster to seduce a beautiful, innocent virgin. Even if his Mark calls to hers, connecting them body and soul, he knows that after just one look at him and she will never surrender the three sacred virginities. Never accept him as a mate.
Blindfolded and seduced, Helen has never seen the Hunter whose voice makes her tremble. She knows something isn’t right, but she can’t say no to the mysterious and demanding Hunter whose kiss makes her burn, and whose touch makes her beg in the darkness of night.
Zee has everything he thinks he needs, until another takes advantage of his new mate’s innocence… and tries to claim Zee’s Interstellar Bride for his own.
I hadn’t always been this way. Damaged. No. One battle and I was ruined. Injured by an ion blast and pinned behind enemy lines. I’d escaped the Hive, but I’d been on the run for days and the wounds to my body had healed before I could reach a ReGen pod. There was nothing the doctors could do. I was scarred for life. Ruthless slices and mottled skin marred my face, my neck. To a female, I was hideous. The virgin brides who’d walked by were proof of that.
And yet I’d been blessed by the gods to find my Marked Mate. Other Hunters were envious of me— for that alone. My mark had guided me to her and the dreams we shared proved the bond. The way she submitted and came for me as well. But she would not want me if she saw me, saw the disfigurement. She would be horrified. Afraid. Scared of me. The one word I feared she’d utter, butterfly, would come from her lush lips and it wouldn’t be from pushing her too far sexually. It would be from a quick glance alone.Grace Goodwin.

As always, Ms. Goodwin gives us another great couple! I just wish there had been more of the backstory in this book. I actually had to go through previous Virgin books to read what came before this. Not exactly what I expected to do.
