To Buy A Wifeby KC Klein
Lake, a chemist and a rebel fighter, is
On a harsh future Earth where corruption rules and women are few, cold realist Hudson Land must purchase a wife to comply with the Elders' laws and save his farm. Instead of an auction, he witnesses the start of an execution. With his first look at a beautiful woman in years, Hudson knows he has to have her-no matter the cost.
Lake, a chemist and a rebel fighter, is resigned to her death, but when some back-hill farmer rescues her from the chopping block she has no intention of simply becoming his wife. She's pledged her life to the Rebellion and being bought for some stranger's bed doesn't change a thing, even if his soft caresses are damn distracting.
As lies and secrets build between them, can they trust each other enough to stand against the two warring factions in a world where only the strong survive?

TO BUY A WIFE is set in the near future where wives, as the title implies are bought; women are a rare commodity. Lake, a revolutionary, is just about to be executed, when Hudson notices. He needs a wife, otherwise he will lose his precious land. He says she’s bearing his child, and even for that regardless of the crime, a woman cannot be executed. Lake is a very independent woman, she doesn’t want to be anybody’s wife, but Hudson doesn’t look so bad, he looks kinder than other men who had looked at her before. Eventually, she decides to make him believe that she will stay with him, and she would if only she could… TO BUY A WIFE is another superb SciFi novel concocted by Ms. Klein. I would put it in the same vein as Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale, not because the story is similar, far from it, but because it is an intelligent reflection on the condition of women. TO BUY A WIFE is extremely well written, fast-paced, and the story flows very smoothly. There are also quite a few very pleasant surprises, especially in the case of Hudson. I liked both characters a lot. I am not a SciFi reader, and again KC Klein penned a superb story that had me racing to the end!
