A refugee from her home planet, Laleh Sarafpour has utilized all of her resources to stay on Earth and despite all of this she is going to be deported back to her home planet in a matter of days.  What Laleh needs is a miracle – she knows that her life is forfeit if she is forced to return to her homeland.  Laleh’s salvation comes in the form of Pike Grayson, a Spacefleet admiral.  He is a hero in his own right and when he proposes a marriage of convenience in order to keep her safe, Laleh wants to know what’s in it for him.  Regardless of Pike’s reasons for helping her, Laleh knows he is her best bet to staying alive – and so they marry.  The danger to Laleh has not gone away, however, because her past catches up to her in the worst way.  Will Pike be able to protect her?

Lolita Lopez employed several attention getting plot devices in Refuge.  And those devices worked extremely well.  Pike and Laleh’s attraction for each other was realistic and consuming.  The time Laleh and Pike spent getting to know each other was exactly what Laleh needed.  Her arousal whenever Pike is near was something that she had to learn about and handle.  Pike’s love for Laleh was intense and very sexual, but it was a bit more.  To him, Laleh was his and he vowed to do anything, and I mean anything, to keep her safe.  And he did.

Refuge is a worthy and attention grabbing read.  Of course, I am a fan of marriages of conveniences and that made Refuge the perfect book for me!
