Six years ago Tiron was one of 31 Ruinosís who crash-landed on earth while fleeing for their lives.  To keep safe and from attracting the aliens who were hunting them they each had to go their separate way.  Tiron (Roni) didnít know what she could do on this new planet that would let her have her nights free, so she could resume her normal form, and make money to be able to live and eat.  What she ends up doing is becoming a common street prostitute.  Though she only works during the day and only when she needs money.

Now suddenly someone is killing prostitutes in Crescent City and everyone is a little fearful, including the police.  When Roni is picked up in a sting she intrigues Lt. DeGrassi and when she pleads with him to make sure she doesnít have to spend an evening in jail he goes out on a limb and vouches for her before a judge.  Roni and DeGrassi are draw to each other and Roni knows from the way he smells that despite the difference in their species that she has finally found her bond mate, after all these years and miles.  But, she also knows he will never accept a prostitute, let alone her true form. 

But, when DeGrassi is faced with losing Roni forever and makes a few choices, things might just turn out for the both of them.  Now if only they can figure out who is the prostitute killer as it seems Roni might just be his next victim.

Go, Ms. Mooney, Go.  I am thoroughly intrigued by the species she has invented and am hooked on reading how they adapt to the human race and lifestyles.  In Tiron you get your first look at a female of the Ruinos people.  This is the second book in the series but can easily be read as a stand-alone book, though be warned it will make you want to go back and read the first offering.  I love how the interaction between the characters takes place and how Roni got into her initial and final professions.  I look forward to another 29stories about this wonderful group of survivors.
