When Mandy loses her job, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom – until her plane is swallowed by a strange storm that sends her and everyone else on board 10,000 years into the future. At first, she thinks the scary world is nothing more than a bad dream. The war-torn Earth is unrecognizable. Black fog blocks the sun, and the oceans are dry. Even worse: the planet is inhabited by half-human, half-alien creatures dying from a mysterious disease. Horrified at the thought of spending her life here, she clings to the knowledge that there’s one man who can open the star gate to send her home.
As the Naki prince who controls the star gate, Akkadi gets first choice of any human female that makes her way through the star gate. Only by breeding with purebred humans from the past can his race hope to remain immune to the disease and hopefully, develop an eventual cure. With shrinking resources and a raging battle for the human planet, dutiful, commanding Akkadi is less than thrilled at the idea of trying to figure out Mandy, a woman he views as wild with neither discipline nor respect for someone in his position.
He’s ready to write her off, when she offers him something too tempting to resist: her body for the chance to convince him by any means possible to send her home. Neither intends for the arrangement to be permanent or to fall for the other. Only when Mandy learns Akkadi’s secret and walks away does he realize he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her – even if it means losing his war.

Wow! What can I say to Lizzy Ford's 2nd foray into the adult genre? Mandy is a model who lost her job. She goes on a flight to escape for a while. Suddenly through a freak storm she is thrown 10,000 years into the future. The Earth is nothing like she remembers. War torn, no blue skies or ocean to be seen anywhere, aliens, mysterious plague etc. She is rescued by Urik, a freedom fighter who is related to the ruling Naki race. From there she is rescued by Akkadi, one of the Naki royalty who thinks of nothing but duty. Duty to family, duty to race, duty to the humans. In this new world, currency is in the form of energy, and there is not near enough to be found. Akkadi enters into an engagement with the daughter of another ruling family in order to get the energy that his family needs to continue their war and a way to cure the plague. Besides, he wants nothing to do with Mandy. After all, she is wild and undisciplined according to Naki standards, so what would he want with her. Right? Wrong! He can't get this purebred human out of his mind. So he takes her as a consort, but then ignores her. Mandy in the meantime is very much your modern woman. She's not going to take sh** from ANYONE! Much less this prince who thinks he's above her. After all, she's been made a slave, a concubine, and has an alien princess who hates her, and who continually switches her when she gets the opportunity. After all, all she wants to do is go home! But she can't get this alien prince out of her head either. What is she to do? I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Though there are several spelling errors in this book, Lizzy Ford is the consummate storyteller yet again in this 2nd foray into the adult genre. Plenty of action, emotion, and several hot sex scenes. The Naki remind me of Vulcans from Star Trek and Akkadi reminds me very much of Spock. He denies his human heritage and feelings and lives as a coldly logical man. Once Mandy comes into his life his humanity tries to break through. I love Mandy. Her grit, her fire, and her refusal to take anything from anybody. I also love Akkadi's mother. She is another human who was brought forward from an earlier time, and married the king. She befriends Mandy, and tries to get her to ease Mandy's transition to this new life. Overall I rate this story 3.75 stars, but that's only because of the spelling errors. Hurry up and write the sequel Lizzy Ford!
Really good book but it had a lot of typing errors. I would like to read a second book involving this future world.
Star Kissed by Lizzy Ford is everything a futuristic novel should be. It is well written and compelling. Such a strong reflection on our "duty" to each other and our planet. Filled with mystery and suspense, drama and carefully described scenes, this book is a win in all genres. The love story is sweet and HOTT. A must read.
From the very beginning I loved this story. It has everything that you want.... Action, drama, betrayal, heartbreak, love, comedy, and sex. A must read and one that you will definitely want to re read.
Usually a big fan of her books. This one seemed hastily written and the main character was not likeable at all. Definately not my favorite of her work.
Dfferent, a little slow and draggy in spots, but nice story.
