Overview

Trapped on Arden, Earthman Tristan Mallory discovers that men are sex slaves forced into harems. He has no intention of belonging to anyone, not even beautiful fellow scientist Mara d'Jorel. Mara despises the harem system and has refused to participate, but her heart won't allow anyone else to own Tristan, and owning him will turn his growing love into hate. To give Tristan the freedom her world denies, she must risk everything--her reputation, her home, and even her freedom and life. But her greatest risk is losing Tristan's love to another woman. Tristan's friend Kellen Votrain is acquired as a bed slave by vicious Cadaran d'Hasta, head of Arden's Internal Security, who has used the lives and deaths of thousands of men to gain her power. Intelligent and amoral, she'll do anything to destroy him and Tristan and any woman weak enough to love them. With the help of a local intelligent alien who resembles an Earth cat and Dorian Dalia--Tristan's long-time romantic interest, Tristan, Mara, and Kellen escape the planet. Through the vast emptiness of space and the most primitive of human colonies, they seek freedom, but Cadaran is always one step behind them.

Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Dunne
The characters are all realistically drawn, and the world building is a masterpiece of pragmatic cynicism wed to hopeful optimism. Truth and true love triumph, but the battle takes physical and emotional casualties that both satisfy the sense of realism and provide an uplifting theme of hope for those who endure suffering.
Karen McCullough
Star- Crossed grabbed my attention from the first page and refused to let go until I had finished it. It was easy to become involved in the problems of Tris and Kellen, Mara and Dorian, and to root for them whole-heartedly. I hurt for them when they were hurting and rejoiced with them in their triumphs. This is definitely one of the best books I've read recently. 5 Stars!
Anonymous Reviewer
...a complex and involving plot, sympathetic and beleaguered characters, and well-crafted world-building. The good guys are multifaceted and believable, the villain is thoroughly evil, and even the fuzzy native sentient sidekick proves a likable, well-developed character. STAR-CROSSED is an accomplished, involving, and challenging contribution to the world of futuristic romance.
