A trip in outer space takes some surprising and deadly turns for an attractive young woman wanting to strike out on her own. But she's not really alone since her alien companion is particularly capable.

When the customs of otherworldly Ferenc's home planet lead to undreamed-of results for Fissa, who is more curious than wise, the outcomes are life changing for not just the two of them.

The well-written story gives readers plenty of action and an even greater dose of exotic romance.

Coming of Age on a Deadly Planet

Fissa's desire for independence, leaving the safety of her home planet to travel space on her cousin's ship, the St. Catherine, may be her first and final adventure. The ship is attacked, and she crash-lands in a shuttle on a planet covered with carnivorous vegetation. Now her life is in the hands of Ferenc, an alien humanoid with strange physical powers. Will he abandon her, force himself upon her, or continue to save her as they journey over deadly terrain? Under the constant threat of death and with a growing attraction for the enigmatic humanoid, Fissa must grow up fast and make some life-altering choices. Joy V. Smith has deftly combined science fiction adventure with romance, realistically exploring an emotional and physical relationship between human and humanoid.
