Overview

Two cultures--one dusty planet. Intergalactic relations have never been so hot. Starship Captain Samantha Grier has only two options--crash land her warship on an unknown planet inhabited by God knows what, or drift through space. She never counted on becoming part of a colony of barbarians, or becoming the center of attention for their illustrious leader?a man more than capable of claiming both her heart and her body. Too bad not everyone is thrilled by the new sleeping arrangements. Griffin can't believe his good fortune. Not only did the humans arrive just as their power grid was failing, but their Captain is a vision of beauty. With blue eyes and fair skin, he knows instantly that she's his intended mate. But claiming her is the easy part. When brutal attacks bring the two cultures to the brink of war, will he be able to keep the colony together, while maintaining his role as her mate? Or will the tension leave them worlds apart?

Sam is a kick-a** captain. A selfless but rough-tough go-getter. Griffin is the leader of his genetically altered people, who had been left to thrive or die on their own. What happens when an Earthling captain and a DNA altered individual meet? Well... cultural misunderstandings, life-death challenges, technological fiascos, and.... love! At the beginning, I really liked how Sam & Griffin came together. I especially enjoyed how Samantha proved herself to Griffin's people. How do you convince a bunch of warriors that you are not a doormat? You challenge them to match of skill & strength. And, of course, may the best 'wo'man win! Initially, I was upset by an upbrupt change to Sam & Griffin's relationship that occurs mid-way through the story. But after taking some time to think about it I realized that the way the author presented it, was truly something that would occur when two seemingly natural enemies come together. Everyone has their honeymoon period before, inevitably, real-life intrudes, misunderstandings occur, trust is tested, etc... Griffin, like most men (sorry guys!) IS a guy. He will suffer from self-doubt. He will trust those who have always been closest to him, and he will NOT ask the questions of the one who could actually answer them. He will create a mountain from a mole-hill, skew his own understanding & create his own problems. Frankly, after how he treated Samantha I'm surprised that the author didn't allow her to smack Griffin upside his head. The issues that he created by his mistrust I don't feel would have been able to be overcome or mended, but, of course, they were. Samantha was a great heroine. Strong, skilled, caring, & no nonsense ; ) I did find a little fault with how easily she gave in to Griffin after their 'misunderstanding', but then again, she didn't have much choice. I won't say why because it would offer a spoiler. Overall, I thought it was an intriguing read and very enjoyable. But, can I smack Griffin around a bit? Please?

Good could have been great. Dont get me wrong buy it. You will love it. But Norris if you read these work on describing the characters more and build it up better. You went from hot and heavy to weeks later and "missed" the drama suspense we all love and went right to the "fix". Not sure if an editor cut it out. But is why it was good but could of been great.
