Rose Flowers wakes up to an unimaginable nightmare: alien men from another planet have invaded Earth. The intruders have come in search of women to provide their dying planet with children. Rose resists, but eventually she submits under threat of violence. She's shocked to find herself assigned to Colonel Aaron Miller. She's to be his wife and bear his child-whether she likes it or not.
Rose hates her captors until she realizes that not all the invaders are as heartless as their vile mission commander. She finds herself strangely attracted to Caleb Jackson, one of Aaron's comrades. Aaron shows himself to be touchingly loyal to his true wife. Rose, Caleb, and Aaron don't want to follow through with the plan, but how can they disobey the Commander?
The Commander doesn't care about the morals or free will of others, and he will stop at nothing to produce as many infants as possible. He's not afraid to tamper with medical science or risk the lives of his own citizens. If love is to triumph over coercion, Rose, Caleb, and Aaron will have to rely on a risky plan of rebellion, and their blossoming trust in one another.
