Overview

Saronna Maynard never expected to be sold into an off-world household, anymore than Duncan Trushenko expected to return from a business trip to find that his father had bought a companion for him. Saronna is grateful, in many ways. Her new protector is too horrified by the customs of Krueger's World to wonder why her father could never find a husband for her. And off-worlders don't believe in witches. The more time Saronna spends with Duncan, the harder it is for her to believe all men are as evil as her mother taught her. But safer or not, Saronna is still intent on keeping her secrets. After all, she's still on Krueger's World.

Editorial Reviews

Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly - Norm Zeeman
The author immediately drops us into the middle of the action of this coming-of-age/semi-first-contact story as Saronna's father is taking her to be sold to an off-world trader in the Strangers Quarter on Krueger's World. We learn that the planet is a patriarchal, backward world practicing polygamy, and that women are nothing more than chattel--better-behaved if they are beaten regularly . .
I loved the author's ability to seamlessly present information in a understated manner...
