Sometimes a lie is the only way to get to the truth. Rhal fa Adar—Ujal assassin—is a liar and Cara is more than ready to beat the truth out of him.


To Cara Marte, the Ujal are everyday average people—er, aliens—who occasionally grow fins and scales. They’re friends and colleagues, and mates? Cara knows she wants Rhal fa Adar—with his thick muscles, midnight black scales, and dark eyes. He always keeps her at arm’s length, sharing pleasure and nothing more. He wants her but refuses to mate her. When she discovers the reasons he told her are lies, she takes her battered heart to the Intergalactic Mating Agency. Her match is out there, and the agency promises to find him. But what if all she can imagine is a future with Rhal?


Rhal fa Adar is no one’s idea of a worthy mate. He sacrificed his soul for Ujal as the king’s secret assassin, and now he is one of the prince’s high guards. His tainted soul means he cannot have Cara and yet when Rhal discovers she’s gone to the Intergalactic Mating Agency to find a mate, he realizes he will not—cannot—lose her to another. Cara may hate him for his lies and breaking her heart, but he is a smart male and is sure he can put it together again. Eventually.


The only problem with Rhal’s plan? An evil from his past appears on Earth and shatters the tenuous bond they share. Now he prepares for the hardest battle of his life—the one for Cara.


Part of the UJAL series:
The Ujal Volume One (Vados, Tave, Rhal)
Dashing Through the Stars






Rhal is book three in The Ujal series. It’s a quick read. 


I see that the books in The Ujal series where first published as parts and later put together into one book. I’m glad it’s one book. I have never been a fan of a book being sold as parts and wouldn’t buy a book that way.


One of the things I like about this series is the unique aliens. Each Ujal has it’s own unique coloring, traits, and characteristics. 


Rhal was an emotional read from start to finish. Rhal’s past is not pleasant and hard to learn about. Cara was ok. I didn’t like her nor did I not like her. As for the romance this couple ended up spending a lot of time apart either because they where upset with each other about something or someone in the Ujal nation was keeping them apart. We get more drama in this novel then in the other’s. I will say I really liked the surprise at the end with our heroine, Cara, getting something extra in their mating. I won’t tell you. You just have to read to find out.


Rhal was an emotional, fun, and enjoyable read. 


Rated: 3 Stars
