The Dreamer, Her Angel And The Starsby Linda S. North
The year is 2098. Thirty-eight year old Kiernan O'Shay's dream is to build spaceships capable of light-speed. This dream is within her grasp if she can gain full control of the freighter spacecraft company her late grandmother built. She only has to adhere to the antiquated stipulation in her grandmother's will that she marry and produce an heir by her fortieth birthday.
Twenty-five year old Ariel Thorsen is content with her life. She has a job as a physics professor at a local college, a loving family, and a beautiful girlfriend. She is unaware Kiernan O'Shay has chosen her to fill the role of wife, and mother of Kiernan's heir.
Kiernan offers Ariel and her family monetary wealth if Ariel will agree to marry her. Ariel refuses until a tragic event forces her to accept Kiernan's offer. What starts out as a business arrangement turns into more for Kiernan. However, Ariel resents Kiernan, believing she was behind the matter that forced her into this marriage.
Can Kiernan win Ariel's love?

Wonderful! This book was so well written I would never have guessed it was a debut novel. Ariel is caught between a rock and ahard place, her only way out is through an agreement with the powerful Kiernan O Shay. The pair overcome betrayal and more in their quest to find themselves and each other. I really, really enjoyed this story. It was very well written and had all the trauma and drama that is essential for a classic romance tale. The love scenes were very spicy and oh so good! There were several scenes that had my on the edge of my seat, as I anxiously awated the fate of our heros. It was definatly not a book I wanted to put down! A perfect 10 for Ms. North, Thank you!
Not exactly a science-fi book but very good. Shows that every relationship doesn't start out on the right foot. The primise is great, what would you do for your parents, what would you sacrifice for a loved ones happiness? read this book and find out, you will enjoy it.
Arranged marriages are a staple of straight romance, but for obvious reasons, they’re rare in lesbian romance. So, since this book features an arranged lesbian marriage, I was instantly intrigued. Usually, you marry someone you love, right? You meet, go through dating and maybe you live together and get a pet. You discuss kids. THEN comes the wedding. Ariel and Kiernan do it backward except they meet first. As is usual in many love affairs, the feelings are deeper on one side at first (Kiernan’s side in this instance). Ariel resents having to marry Kiernan, but eventually she comes to realize that while the marriage was arranged, she did have a choice in the matter. She chose to marry Kiernan, and it’s up to Ariel to decide how she reacts. She can continue pouting or make the best of it. She decides to make the best of it—and not a moment too soon. This book is an interesting break from traditional lesbian romance and well worth picking up for that reason alone. Kiernan is a believable LIPS (Lesbian in a Power Suit). This book has no forced intercourse and no Stockholm syndrome, as a couple of reviews indicate. I felt a few scenes were too long and/or unnecessary, but overall, a solid debut novel. I’d definitely read Linda S. North again.
