Publisher's Summary

*What would you do if Earth didn’t have enough men?*

*Would you take a chance and leave the only world you knew behind?*

This is the decision Faith Reid faces. Placing all her hope in a new government program, she seizes the opportunity that offers a chance for the women of Earth to find love among the stars, on a world beyond the one they know.

*How many times can one man risk rejection?*

*Would you give up on your dreams?*

Torkel Alonson has had enough of being ignored and looked over by females on his adopted home world of Enotia. His pride has suffered and he must accept the painful truth. Females will never choose a male with his evil lineage despite his honorable service to his government's military.

*Can two people looking for the same thing find not just what they want but what they need in one another?*

Wow

I'm seriously impressed by Michelle Howard, I came across this author purely by trying someone new and I was hooked from the start. The story is fast paced at times, jam packed with passion, sex and strong characters.

I would put some of the qualities of this book akin to the Cyborg seduction series by Laurann Dohner

I'm looking forward to hearing the next instalment, the narrator is also new to me but he has a wonderful depth of voice and a varied range fabulous :-)

This could have been a 5 star...

This is written so well that you're there in the moment with every character. I had to remind myself to breathe so I'd be less keyed up at the high tension parts. The author's ability to suck you into the story is brilliant but...

Just once I'd like the woman to go straight to her guy and tell him everything. I also can't figure out how they could have feasibly wrangled an HEA. I can't say anymore without spoilers so I'll stop about the story there.

The narration lost a star with me because Torkel's voice and the villain's voice were sometimes hard to differentiate. This caused me no end of panic, especially at the end!

Those minor points aside, I will be devouring this series even though I'll have to switch from audio to Kindle. A great read!

Wow.

Great book. I have already order book 2. Not my usual choice of book but glad I did read it. Great character is description story flows well. Obviously a lot of adult scenes but with a good story around it. 5*
