Devastated by the actions of her mother, Callie does the only thing she can - she leaves Narian for good. She will not be a bargaining chip for her mother’s empire, and the thought of marrying a man for that reason is abhorrent to her.
His mother’s marriage contract for him is infuriating to say the least, but Jaran Narind is willing to give it one last shot. He will not wed a woman who has had the choice taken from her.
The last two years away from her family and friends have gone fairly well for Callie, but she misses her father most of all. Despite this, she has made a good life for herself here on Earth, and is not about to give it up. Jaran arrives on Earth to give Callie the chance to accept him or not, but one look at this beautiful woman, and he knows that walking away will be next to impossible. He wants her more than his next breath, but telling her the truth will threaten to crush any feelings she may have for him.
This story is surely fun and fanciful, and what it lacks in substance it makes up for in heat. The main characters are sweet and sexy, and make this an entertaining read. I can really see this story blossoming with some depth added to their backgrounds, as well as the struggles they go through to be together. The sci-fi aspect is certainly appealing, and I really enjoyed the nuances it adds to the storyline.
