Science Fiction Romance

Volcair hadn't wanted to attend another official event, but his father, the ambassador, had insisted. Too often, they met people, even some his age, but they never stayed on the planets long enough to form friendships. Then he was on Earth and met Kiara. From the moment he met her, he knew she was different. They became friends, and because this had been a different assignment, he remained on Earth for years. They played together with his pet Cypher. They grew up together. They were best friends and planned a future together. But when his father was reassigned, Volcair was unable to remain on Earth. They promised they would wait for each other, but she moved on, and nearly two decades passed.

Volcair had never moved on from Kiara. He had his work, but never anything more. When he learned that Kiara was in danger, he immediately stepped in, but he planned to then step back. That was until he learned the truth. Although their feelings had never changed, would they be able to move beyond their past into a future.

There was so much about Entwined Fates that I simply adored. A hero oh-so-in-love with his heroine, Best Friends, reconciliation, a cool pet, and true love. It was so sweet watching Volcair and Kiara as children meet and grow up together. I wish their separation had been a lot shorter, but still thrilled that they reunited.
