Plymouth Colony II by Sharolyn Wells is a sweet scifi romance. I read the book about a year ago and have been thinking about featuring it here on the blog, but never got around to it.

Teris Keyes and her brother Eric are two of the few ‘lucky’ humans to
escape the destruction of earth through the help of the Kelkani, who
plan to use the humans to repopulate their dying empire. Stuck in an

amongst the stars, this might very well be a new favorite!
