The Harvest: Taken giveaway

Or, are we?
Grab a group of people and ask if they believe aliens have visited Earth. Then sit back and watch what happens, lol. If all you end up with is a heated discussion, you’re lucky. No matter what people believe, they defend their opinion vigorously.
Ever watch those TV shows that talk about the pyramids and how they were built? Or Stonehenge? What about Aztec temples? It does get you to thinking, does it not? How did they move those stones, carry that stuff… and do it without modern technology? Even if you don’t believe in alien visitation, it still leaves huge questions. Hate to say it, but some of the theories of how ancient man accomplished those things are lame.
Or hey, let’s talk Area 51 and the secrecy which surrounds that facility.
So, are we alone in our little corner of the universe? And that begs the question: What if we aren’t alone? Then, what else is out there, watching… waiting? Are they friends or foe? Or worse yet, what if they are neither? What if we just happen to have something they want? What then? And what happens when they no longer wait?
This brings me to the basics of The Harvest: Taken. Aliens come to Earth and yes, we have something they want: DNA, the building blocks of life. And that’s very important to my aliens, the Tah’Narians. You see, they can’t reproduce anymore and they need DNA. They also are looking for mates to reproduce with.
Welcome to Earth, a lotto system, and young males that are harvested between ages twenty-three and twenty-eight. A scary concept, is it not? But it gets even scarier when a Tah’Narian starship captain is given permission to harvest a young male who is under the age limit.

Dale Michael thought he was safe since he was under the legal age limit. He was wrong.

In the year 2050, humanity finds out they are indeed not alone.

Massive space ships appear without warning above the capital cities of all major nations. The planet Tah'Nar is dying. Chemical warfare has reduced the once-intersexed warrior race to sterility. They need fresh DNA in order to reproduce and have an idea for a harvesting program... and so they turn to Earth.

Earth governments negotiate a lottery, and Dale Michael assumes he's safe since he's under the Harvest age limit. How wrong he is. He's illegally harvested and claimed by Tah'Narian starship captain Keyno Shou. From the moment Keyno sees Dale, he knows he must claim the spirited human male for his own. What he doesn’t expect is a spitfire with a mind of his own—and a deadly disease that will require a risky procedure to cure.
