Jake Williams is a retired astronaut on a camping trip in the Colorado Rockies southwest of Denver. His defining moment involves a life-and-death struggle to save an injured alien whose dark purpose changes Jake’s life. As he attempts to save the alien, an unexplainable bond develops. The alien forsakes his people and transfers not only telepathic control of his ship to Jake, but also his vast knowledge of the universe and a critical part of his DNA. From that moment, Jake becomes responsible for the lives of everything on the planet. He is asked to sacrifice all he holds dear and is tested to the limits of human endurance. During this chaos and overwhelming hopelessness, family, friends and government leaders rally to help him save humanity by fleeing the coming destruction.
As Jake reaches his limits, a young woman crosses his path, a beautiful Spanish girl half his age. Gena serves as the personal secretary of the first female president of the United States, and she is unwillingly pulled into the circle surrounding Jake and his ship. For a long time, they both resist the feelings growing between them. But Gena’s wild passion and Jake’s raging desire ignites a powerful love binding them across the vast distances of space and is the driving force that saves mankind.
An excerpt from the book:
"Wait" Gena stepped into the miked area of Jake's platform. "Nexians explore space. They go from planet to planet. Now that we have SHIP and the technology he represents, can't we do the same?
Find another planet to colonize, far enough away that they can never find us?" There was silence as the idea sank in. Jake turned to her, the new possibility dawning. "You mean ------."
"I mean…. Run away."
