Tye Hajan is the daughter of a powerful man who is now dying. If he does so, Tye and her beautiful sister Wyn will be forced into virtual slavery, since on Metra colony women cannot own property. When she gets her first glimpse of the stranger Cradon, she likes what she sees. But can he be trusted?
Cradon is a warrior with a mission to save his colony, which is close to starvation. He becomes a protector for the workers who pick tanco so they are not killed by the alpana who are large cat-like creatures. Cradon harbors a secret that were it to get out, he could lose his life. When Cradon meets Tye for the first time and realizes the men think she is ugly, he can scarcely believe it, since she definitely lights his fire!
When Tye stands naked where her father’s overseer Fucian is sure to see her, she knows she is taking a risk. However, she is trying to stop Fucian from taking so many liberties such as entering her home whenever he wants. When he sees her, it will give her the upper hand because if she tells anyone, he will have to marry her. Unfortunately, Fucian has Cradon with him. She does not want to marry Fucian. Will Cradon help her by allowing her to choose him instead?
Wanton Warrior kept me glued to the pages from the very beginning! The different cultures were interesting and the world building very good. Tye and Cradon come together beautifully, and I was very happy to see that he was able to see her real beauty. The love scenes are beautiful and well thought out as well. A great cast of characters and a world I would not mind reading about again!
