I read this a long time ago. I'm pretty sure it was the beginning of series, but I lent the book out (was not returned.Big surprise!). I remember that people were snatched or arrested & sent to a new planet where they had to set up a new world. I think there were 2 moons or 2 suns. Days were either longer than ours or shorter. It's been a long time. Whomever dropped these people off needed something from them I think. I do not remember how it ends. I have a tendency to read multiple books a day at times & sometimes mix up the storyline from the different books.
I remember that it was a paperback book I read from.
Hope it rings a bell with someone! Sorry not a lot of info!

Perhaps the Anne McCaffrey Freedom Series?
Starts with Freedoms Landing:
Kristin Bjornsen lived a normal life, right up until the day the spaceships floated into view above Denver. As human slaves were herded into the maw of a massive vessel, Kristin realized her normal life was over and her fight for freedom was just beginning… The alien Catteni value strength and intelligence in their slaves—and Kristin has managed to survive her enslavement while hundreds of other humans have not. But her trial has just begun, for now she finds herself part of a massive experiment. The aliens have discovered a new world, and they have a simple way of finding out if it’s habitable: drop hundreds of slaves on the surface and see what happens. If they survive, colonization can begin. If not, there are always more slaves.
At last--an all new epic Anne McCaffrey novel set in a brave new world. Kristin Bjorsen is a human slave to the overlords called Catteni, who have made the races of many planets bend to their will. But now Kristin has become part of a tremendous alien experiment--one that gives her back her freedom, though not in a way she might have chosen.
I really liked the first two books of this series. Check it to see if it's possibly it.
