I finished this book yesterday and thought it was pretty good. As I explained in a previous post, I won a contest and Julia emailed me two of her books. I had never heard of her and did not know what to expect , but I really did enjoy this book. Ekkatt kidnapped Mari from Earth so that she could be sold at the Market on his home planet. For Ekkatt, this was strictly a business and he thought of humans as cattle. When Mari wakes up early from stasis, she proves to him that humans are more than animals and should not be slaughtered for meat. This pretty much goes against everything that he was taught and believed in. Falling in love with Mari is also against the law on Attun-Ra and if they are found out, Ekkatt would be put to death.
The only thing that I didn't like about this book, was that it wasn't long enough. I hope she creates more Mari and Ekkatt books, so we can see how their relationship develops.
I thought I hated romance novels, but there are many sub-genres of romance novels and I never knew that. I'm finding that I like sci-fi, paranormal, urban fantasy romance novels. I used to read Harlequin books when I was a teenager and they ruined me. I can't tell you how long I had waited for my prince/pirate/cowboy/billionaire to come and rescue me from my hum drum life and it never happened. Technically, I'm not still waiting, but I believe an alien or vampire will come before the prince/pirate/cowboy billionaire.
