Maya Arnold was leading a normal life, working and helping care for her sister, until the Cerasteans arrived. Offering a cure for cancer if enough women volunteer as brides, Maya jumped at the chance. Saving her sister was her only goal. She never expected to actually fall in love with an alien, or find best friends in the other bride volunteers.
Since the mysterious destruction of Ceraste, Commander D’Avii and the surviving males have been searching the galaxy for a new home. Finding Earth and its women was a miracle. Like most Cerasteans, he finds humans to be fascinating creatures -- none more so than bride volunteer Maya. His attraction to her is instant and intense. Still he knows Maya can never choose him, a warrior, with so many higher-caste scientists seeking their own mates. To do so would shame the scientists and tear the last of his people apart. Yet he aches at the loss of something he never even had.
Saving Ceraste chronicles a group of alien warriors and scientists who have been roaming the galaxy since the destruction of their planet. They believed their generation would be the last until they found earth and its women. Working with the world’s governments, they offer to share their technology—including cures for many common diseases—in exchange for help. Thus, The Bride Program is born. Follow the adventures of the Cerasteans, the bride volunteers, doctors, and others on their adventures to build a better tomorrow.
