Overview

Local Custom by Sharon Lee, Steve Miller

Each person shall provide his clan of origin with a child of his blood, who will be raised by the clan and belong to the clan. And this shall be Law for every person of every clan . . .

Master trader Er Thorn knows the local custom of Liaden is to be matched with a proper bride, and provide his prominent clan Korval with an heir. Yet his heart is immersed in another universe, influenced by another culture, and lost to a woman not of his world. And to take a Terran wife such as scholar Anne Davis is to risk his honor and reputation. But when he discovers that their brief encounter years before has resulted in the birth of a child, even more is at stake than anyone imagined. Now, an interstellar scandal has erupted, a bitter war between two families--galaxies apart--has begun, and the only hope for Er Thorn and Anne is a sacrifice neither is prepared to make . . .

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

I enjoyed this book so much that I couldn't put it down. I am an Anne McCaffrey fan and if you like her work, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one. Understated Science Fiction and Romance that's not overdone. I liked it enough that when I had finished it I started it over again for a second read!
