Geoffrey DeWinter and his wife Keirah live on a dying Earth. The only refuge is an alien world that needs human women as mates, only Keirah refuses to leave her husband to save herself. Geoff decides to bring them to an auction house that takes married couples, accepting that he will have to share her with another.

Their shuttle is attacked by Xyran raiders looking for women and it’s Keirah who defends them. When Captain Krig sees Keirah looking like an angel come to life, he wants her. The Alphan warrior wants her enough to accept her husband, thinking he will deal with Geoff in some way or another. But when a vengeful Xyran comes after Keirah they have to take refuge on a wilderness moon, forcing them to work together to survive. Is their love for Keirah enough to turn them into a family?

From the first book in the series, I have loved every moment. This third book just reaffirms my love for the series as well as the Science Fiction Genre. Even though its the third book in the series, I don’t see why it can’t be read as a stand alone. None of the other characters are directly involved in either of the other books. Proposition is a short read, with just enough detail to make the story flow. I loved all three characters.

Geof is a strong character. He helped Keirah when they were young and made it his sole purpose to make sure she would be safe. I’m not sure if he thought everything through. Earth is dying and Keirah’s husband has made plans to get them off the planet. How? The plans are to Auction themselves off as a couple to an Alphan warrior. The Alpheans are short on women and some will take a couple just to have the wife. Knowing what he had to do to keep both him and his wife safe didn’t make it any easier to do. Imagine being sold to the highest bidder in order to help repopulate a alien world.

As short as the story is, you can still feel the emotions run wild. Keirah a loyal wife that is to be a mate to a man she’s never met. Geoffrey fights with his status. How will he fit in? Better yet, will he fit in? Krig wanted a mate. Now he has one and also her husband! What is he going to do with him? Just to mix it up, the writer throws in a bit of danger. Nice. There was a few scenes that had me fanning my face. The author didn’t push the male-male interaction other than a bit of touching. I really like the series and the style of the writers. I think there are two different writers in this series. That was very intriguing and they both made it work. I look forward to reading the rest in the series.
