Synopsis

Captain Maximillian Blair had always hoped to discover there was life on other planets. His job at one of the government's most secure research facilities put him in the position to learn the truth, one way or another. When he met a stranger from the stars, he didn't expect to to be charged with discovering the man's secrets at any cost. Or to fall in love. How deadly would the truth prove to be? And can his love be the world's salvation or will it be its damnation?
